Ladies and Gentlemen! Boys and Girls! Ghosts and Goblins! Zombies and Witches! Vampires and Fictional Characters! The rest of you! Coming Saturday, October 31st, on KXRT is the 2009 edition of the Big Halloween Broadcast! An entire day of fun music, scary stories and just a good time!

All day, we’ll be playing fun music. At 6pm(MDT), the party gets started with an hour of spooky sound effects to provide the right atmosphere. Then, at 7pm, we go LIVE on KXRT with your phone calls and emails! We’ll share your favorite stories, the best/worst costumes, tips and tricks for trick or treating and so much more! At 8pm, we’ll replay, in it’s entirety, the original 1938 broadcast of Orson Wells’ Mercury Theatre presentation of The War of the Worlds!

For the rest of the night, we’ll take more calls, play more fun music and activities. I hope you’ll have us up loud all Halloween Day. It will be the biggest and best BHB, ever.

Have a happy and safe Halloween!

BHB 2008 – Coming Soon!

Get ready! Each year we bring you a huge show for Halloween! We call it the Big Halloween Broadcast. We have been a little busy with some of these latest changes so we haven’t had a lot of time to plan. We are beginning the planning now. Some of the recent tests we’ve done where I’ve gone on the air live have been very positive towards making the whole event happen.

We will be playing a variety of Halloween-themed music, having fun conversation, taking live phone calls, and it all culminates with a rebroadcast of Orson Welles’ The War of the Worlds, from 1938. We play all this without commercial interruption and the entire rebroadcast without any interruption.

I am looking at some new ideas for bringing in your phone calls, such as over Google’s GTalk service, or Skype. I also might go with just a normal over-the-phone option as worked well last year. If you have ideas, let us know!

As always, I am very excited about this time of year. I understand that we have a month and a half to prepare, that just makes the final product that much better. Submit your ideas here, as a comment or via email at kxrt-studio@marinifamily.org.

Thanks!
