Something Special

I am a fan of classical music. I can't hear a piece and tell you the composer and the symphony number, but I enjoy listening to it on occasion (especially to relax). Well, a pleasant surprise was bestowed upon me this afternoon while I was listening to the local classical radio station:

"This Halloween night, tune in to 88.1 for 2 hours of the scariest classical music we can find."

I was immediately filled with energy and happiness. That's all it takes. Small things like that. they let me know that Halloween is still important and present in a lot of people's lives and not just the hardcore fans. I love Halloween programming of any type. Anything that Halloween takes over, I'm a fan of.

I will post a link to stream the broadcast if anyone is interested. I can't wait to hear the chilling sounds on Halloween night.

The coolest part about it all? It's intended for the Trick-or-Treaters. They have set the time for 6-8pm in order to let people play it while the kids are out collecting candy. This station actually cares and gets creative. Granted, ToT in my town is on the Saturday before Halloween (as it should be everywhere) but I know other towns hold their ToT night on Halloween night.

I just had to post about this. It made me so happy to hear a local radio station doing something FOR US on Halloween. Very cool of them. I just wish it was longer than 2 hours.

  1. Danse macabre, Symphonie Fantastique, Hut on Fowl's Legs, there's just so much good stuff. Gotta love that classical radio.

    In college I used to have a radio tuned to the classical station to help me sleep. One night I discovered that they were straight playing different performances of Toccata and Fugue. See, the piece was originally written to test the sound of an organ, so it's recorded pretty frequently. It was fun to listen to the same piece interpreted on different organs from around the world.
