SFR 473: Halloween History | Guest: Lesley Bannatyne

–You thought that witches were going to hex Kavanaugh and just get away with it? Oh, hell no! Now an exorcist has stepped into the fray with strong words and a mass of his own. Who will emerge victorious?
–The Freqs have a lot on their mind this week, everything from aliens, illegal aliens, and murder. But one question on immortalism has piqued Bobby’s interest.
halloween-michaelmyers-masked-daylight-700x321–Jason does his best to give a non-spoiler Halloween review while Bobby runs upstairs to deal with a stolen credit card issue. Once he returns, we talk about the good and bad as it relates to H40.

In our next segment, we chat a while with Halloween historian Lesley Bannatyne. Along the way we learn about when and how Samhain morphed into what we celebrate today, talk a bit about Devil’s Night, and find out some of her own favorite Halloween getups consist of. Fun discussion!

–After the interview, Bobby laments the loss of veteran character actor James Karen, and we discuss a few of his more memorable roles in films like Poltergeist and Return of the Living Dead.
–We close the show with our Halloween spoiler review, so if you haven’t seen the movie, or don’t want to know about the plot twists, you’ll have your chance to avoid the last segment.
–Strange Frequencies Radio returns in two weeks. Happy Halloween!


About Jason Korbus

Friend, family member, possible werewolf. I co-host Strange Frequencies Radio, blog at Confidential Korbus, and generally walk among the weird. When I'm not doing busywork, I can usually be found with my nose in a book, my eyes glued to a glowing screen, or my ears tuned to The Ramones.
