Welcome to Episode 17 of the Weird Tales Radio Show. We talk about the folklore of the St Mark’s Eve Vigil and learn how Charles failed to see any ghosts. In our big interview we talk to artist Stuart Pearson Wright about art, werewolves and J.K.Rowling. Janie explores the myth of the underground tunnel beneath Bungay Castle. We look at the legend of the Spinning Highwayman’s Stone and ask if Countess Elizabeth Bathory may have been right about bathing in blood. And, for light relief we’ll also be playing some suitably occult music by Jethro Tull and the late Warren Zevon. Available now on iTunes, YouTube and all the usual suspects OR just click on the player below.
