Radio Xiane 102720 – The Witching Hour

As always, I designed this set to flow in a particular way, so you might lose that if you listen on the mobile app, as it shuffles the tracks. You can get around that by starting the list by clicking play on the first track and letting it play through that way.

Look for show notes and a playlist below the player  ⇓

Some notes about the show:

Tis now the very witching time of night/When churchyards yawn and hell itself breathes out/Contagion to this world/ now could I drink hot blood/And do such bitter business as the day/Would quake to look on. – Shakespeare, Hamlet

Happy Halloween! Spooky Samhain! Here’s a playlist of some old, new, weird, and ridiculous things that sum up my feelings about Halloween and also Halloween under a pandemic. Best when played loud, so that it drowns out this existential hellscape.

I have some requests and I welcome more! Comment here or on Facebook or Twitter and I’ll do my best!
