Songs Of The Supernatural (For Halloween)

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

A fall perennial, this show leads to next Wednesday’s celebration of Halloween and the start of the ancient Celtic New Year. This program differs from previous years in that, after the opening set, it’s devoted almost entirely to ballads, tunes and stories about ghosts.
