Love this to Death

I have listened to this a dozen times. It is well timed, haunting and darkly inspiring pieces are chosen, and leaves a chilling mood that sticks with you afterward. I really hope Love+Radio does another one of these ghost story episodes.

Creepy

Radio does creepy better than any other medium IMO. This is outstanding radio, well done.

Review of Love & Radio: Ghost Stories

Why isn't this and more stuff like it on the radio?

This piece starts out with a 22 second guitar/scream with no introduction at all alerting listeners that something unconventional is about to happen.

And when things finally kick off it's well worth the wait.

It makes perfect use of the aural medium called radio and creates a spine-tingling sense of dread and horror with stories and sound effects.

Great fun to listen to. Great writing. Great stories. Hey, it's great, what can I say?
