Closing out our Halloween-Spook-tacular this year is a delightful trio of conversations with excellent friends, each of whom enjoy this time of year, but all things dark and eerie. There’s a bit of ennui that sets in after the last holiday broadcast of the year, and we had so much fun this time that I really didn’t want the party to stop. So two of our calls during this show are quite long, and both cover many experiences that each of gone through over the years. Additionally, two of our callers discuss a similar Chicago Landmark. And, all three are incredible additions to any broadcast, regardless of the time of year.
If you are interested in finding more information about Branden’s music, I would check out his MyFacester+ Page, or his (Aesthetic Pulses) SoundCloud Account, where there’s a fair amount of music. You can find Arvo Zylo’s music at his website, nopartofit.com. Arvo discusses a book by Sarah Wreck, too, and it’s affect on his story.
The range of stories we heard from callers this year was fantastic, and if you missed any of our four Ghost Stories programs this year (or the two we did last year), you could do a lot worse than follow this link: midvalleymutations.com/category/ghost-stories. You’ll find all six, with calls from friends and former guests on the program, all sharing real, personal experiences in the world of paranormal and unexplained events. And, if you just like Halloween, then check out Austin’s Annual Halloweeen Spook-tacular, in iTunes or in a podcast-agnostic RSS Feed. (As near as I can figure, it seems to be available in most podcasting apps, but let me know if you can’t find it.) This podcast has shows going back to 2004, and now features all of the Closet Radio Halloween broadcasts, too. All to get you into the Holiday Spirit. Please, check it out. You won’t regret it.
Now that the holiday season is over, we’ll return to live music and interviews as a more regular staple of the show. But, until next year:
A Merry Spook-tacular to you all! And to all, a Good Day!
