A Couple Of Halloween Treats For You

Two local Halloween treats for you today on classic music WGUC-FM and nostalgia/big band WMKV-FM:

WMKV-FM (89.3): At 4 p.m., Springdale's WMKV-FM broadcasts recreations of two old "Suspense" radio dramas. New Edgecliffe Theatre performers recorded the episodes, "House on Cypress Canyon" and "Ghost Hunt," at Maple Knoll Village Auditorium Sunday for broadcast 4-5 p.m. They also will be streamed at THEIOS

The shows were directed by Nathan Gabriel, 26, the New Edgecliffe associate artistic director who’s a huge fan of “The Shadow” old-time radio thrillers. WMKV-FM’s Mike Martini supervised the live sound effects and station director George Zahn recorded the shows.

WGUC-FM (90.9): At 6 p.m., WGUC-FM (90.9) again fills the Halloween airwaves with spooky classical music to crank up during Trick or Treat tonight. "Tunes from the Crypt 2007" (6-8 p.m.), a repeat from last year, includes selections from "War of the Worlds," "Pirates of the Caribbean," "Lord of the Rings 3," "Danse Macabre" and "This is Halloween" from "The Night Before Christmas."

"Tunes from the Crypt Returns (8-10 p.m.), another repeat, provides what WGUC-FM publicist Kevin Reynolds calls "two hours of the most spine-tingling classical music composed (or decomposed) over the last three centuries." Host Mark Perzel plays "Danse Macabre," Stravinsky’s "Firebird: Infernal Dance," Mussorgsky's "Night on Bald Mountain," Danny Elfman's "Batman Forever: Main Theme and March" and John Williams' "Devil’s Dance" from "Witches of Eastwick."

Perzel also has written about his "Top 5 Creepy Classics" for National Public Radio, posted at
