In most years, following Talk Like A Pirate Day I usually forget to mention the best source of Ghost Stories, which is upcoming.

On Halloween Eve each year, the nighttime radio show Coast To Coast transforms to Ghost To Ghost, and is essentially nonstop Ghost Stories from callers to the show.
For sure, some are not very good, but I'm fair certain that the best ones I've heard in my life were during these shows.

If you get a chance to schedule some time, or a recording of it, I do recommend so.

Even after retiring from the show he created, Art Bell would return for a few years on this one night each year to host it. Now he has passed, but his old shows are still broadcast as "Somewhere in Time" on certain nights. For those not familiar, it can be difficult to fathom such quality broadcasting, largely from audience callers, never screened by anybody before Art transferred their blind call to the airwaves, and are rebroadcast 20-25 years later with little drop in relevance, other than some mentions of who was President, who was still alive, hearing of the Twin Towers in present tense.

It is a remarkable achievement.

But now you have a month of head's up before the event. I've never heard a year when it was a complete dud.

Hey thanks for the heads up!

I LOVE radio stories! I'm old enough to remember a time before TV, when we used to listen to Gunsmoke on the radio in the evening. But when The Shadow and The Whistler came on, it was time for bed, darn it.

News from Lake Woebegone and Guy Noir, Private Eye were my favorite parts of Prairie Home Companion, and I like The Moth and Flash Judgment.

Who knows that evil lurks in the hearts of men?
The Shadow knows!

I see that Ghost to Ghost will be broadcast from beautiful downtown Burbank from 10PM to 3AM on KFI ("KFI in the sky" news and traffic) 640.

To cover all of the time zones, some of the hours repeat on some stations, so are not always in sequence. Check what the actual live times are, if you are interested.

And I'm fair certain they stream as well. IIRC it remains the most popular overnight show. They do have some stuff archived, not sure about the Ghost shows. You might find an older one, cuddle up with friends/family on the weekend before Halloween this year, and listen to it (or excerpt some of the best ones). There might be other services which store old copies, without permission.

It ha been many years since I heard it on AM.

Bump for a couple weeks from now.

And no, I don't recall any of these stories having anything to do with politics, even though they are right before Elections.
