Songs of the Supernatural (for Halloween)

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

A listener-popular perennial, this show leads the way for Sunday night's celebration of Halloween and the eve of the ancient Celtic New Year, from which the roots of Halloween sprung. This year we placed the focus on nautical ghosts, a bit of humor and Steeleye Span's version of "Tam Lin", the epic fairy ballad.
