In the before times, Radio Free Athens’ volunteer DJs filled the WOUB AM airwaves most Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 8p.m. EDT. We’ll be back at it in time, but for now we are supplying weekly playlists and accompanying memes.


From R@T 

Happy Halloween to you all!  It is the time of ghosts, goblins and ghouls but I am not sure that it can get any scarier than this year has already been.  This weekend’s playlist is just some of what you might hear when I hit the airwaves again live this Saturday from nine until noon. 1340 AM or stream it live at Click on AM.  If you have not done so already please get out and vote. You stay safe and sexy A-Camp.

Isolation 29: Hallow’ed Sound:

Hallowe’en has always been kind of big deal around here. Maybe it’s the location, the asylum, the proximity to the Mothman sightings,  or its reputation among paranormal researchers as the 13th scariest place on earth (ooh, 13! Ominous, man!)
Accordingly, for the previous 13 years, Radio Free Athens has hosted a live, 11 hour radio “Spooktacular”.  But you had to be listening in real time, or you missed it. This year,  it is available at your fingertips, and until the end of time – or America, whichever comes first.
