Episode #16-43 | airing 10-27-16

Bluegrass Ghost by Terry Irwin

This week we celebrate music for the Haunting Season of Halloween. Some songs and tunes have a deep spiritual significance and others are just for fun.
We’ll feature ancient melodies and classic tunes as well as a Native American story about the supernatural and a selection from the Sacred Harp. Turn down the lights and light the candle in the jack’o’lantern and prepared to get scared.
