Halloween is approaching, dear readers, and The Post-Meridian Radio Players are bringing their tales of woe and dread back again.
But this time we are wandering deep into the shadowed library halls. First we will hit the History section, to summon the ghosts of 1930s comedies with The Frank Cyrano Byfar Hour. You can settle in for laughs and song, purchase classic treats from the beautiful ladies, and drop your guard.
Because after that we head to the Astronomy section to study the planet Mars. You know odd sights have been seen on its surface of late..but I'm sure that doesn't mean anything for us. Certainly not the destruction of Boston around your very ears in a massive War of the Worlds. Just ignore the explosions and screams. And the slimy sucking sounds behind you...
Oh my. Guess you had to leave the library early. Too bad.
But if you want to experience the full awe and mastery of The Big Broadcast of 1938, you'll have to order tickets. Four performances at the Somerville Theatre! October 29th, 30th and we destroy Boston twice on Halloween itself! Credit: Chris DeKalb
