Songs Of The Supernatural

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

It’s the Friday before Halloween and the start of the Celtic New Year. This show is our annual celebration of those events. This year the music concentrates on balladry, especially touching on ghosts and witches with a bit of comic relief thrown in to ease the terror and fright.
