I believe that radio is still alive and well. I enjoy listening to my local radio station (in fact it’s on as I’m writing this post), especially in the mornings and as I’m driving around town. I listen to This American Life regularly (as a podcast). I’m not great at paying attention to what time things are actually aired, so I’m grateful for streaming and websites.

The Woman in Black at CLC is Spooky Good

The Woman in Black at CLC is Spooky Good

With it’s atmospheric lighting, sound effects, and grim story, The Woman in Black is a spooktacular way to start your Halloween weekend. CLC Theater Director Patrick Spradlin directs and acts in this play along with Brainerd area theater veteran Kevin Yeager. The two play the various characters that occupy the creepy story of a English countryside, a man who needs to purge himself of the story, and his friend who doesn’t know what he’s getting himself into by bringing those characters to life. The show is filled with ghostly images, eerie sound effects, and a story that sends a chill down your spine. I don’t know if it was the chilly theater, the first snowstorm of the season blowing in, or the great theatrical effects, but I actually felt my skin crawl during this show!
