There's a brisk breeze in the air, bringing us the smell of dead leaves and rain. Summer has passed and Autumn is here, which means one thing - Halloween is near! With Halloween approaching, NeverEndingWonder Halloween Radio Empire is back on the air! This is our 11th year on the air!
The NeverEndingWonder Halloween Radio Empire consists of three, count 'em three, unique Halloween internet radio stations. Our flagship station, NeverEndingWonder Halloween, plays a unique freeform mix of horror & Halloween themed music from days long past to contemporary new releases. You can hear early jazz & blues numbers, such as Robert Johnson's Hellbound Train and Bessie Smith's Graveyard Dream Blues, big band and swing novelties such as Swingin' At the Seance and The Ghost of Smokey Joe, a cornacopia of crazy novelties from the monster explosion of the 50s, such as The Goo Goo Muck, The Blob, and so much more, classic spooky music from the 60s & 70s such as Roky Erikson, Alice Cooper, Pink Floyd and King Krimson, right up to recent offerings from such bands as Midnight Syndicate and Nox Arcana.
We also feature horror & sci-fi soundtracks classic & contemorary, from The Bride of Frankenstein (the first original horror film score), to the iconic composers such as Henry Manfredini, John Carpenter, Danny Elfman, David Hess, Les Baxter, Akira Ifukube (who composed powerful, atmospheric scores for so many Godzilla films) and many many more.
But we don't just shuffle the music and throw it on the air, what makes NeverEndingWonder Halloween so unique and entertaining, is the ephemera we include in the mix. You'll hear everything from horror movie trailers and radio commercials, sound bites from horror & sci-fi films, the testimony of UFO abductees, classic Ripley's Believe it or Not spots, and material that was specially recorded just for NeverEndingWonder Halloween that can not be heard anywhere else; Halloween greetings and memories from some surprising guests, such as David Hedison (from the classic film The Fly), the magical Forrest J. Ackerman (one of the last things he ever recorded, R.I.P. dear Forry), Ricoh Ross, Jim O'Rear, even fan favorites Victoria DeMare & Chainsaw Sally, not to mention a slew of Halloween & Horror Fans. And that's ust the tip of the icepick! Not to mention - an hour of spooky old time radio dramas, twice a day, at noon & midnight, Pacific Time!
We also present two other stations:
Welcome to Weirdsville - The Silly Side of Halloween, on which you can hear great Halloween comedy and comedy music. Spike Jones, Zacherlie, Bobby Boris Pickett, Weird Al, Elvira, Dickie Goodman - they're all there, along with more, more & more!
Halloween On Broadway - here you'll hear all the strange and creepy musicals. Rocky Horror, Sweeney Todd, Phantom of the Opera, Attack of the Killer Tomatoes, Hunchback of Notre Dame, Dance of the Vampires, and the ever present More! How about Rocky Horror in Spanish? How about Danish? We got 'em! Silence of the Lambs the Musical - we've got it!
