Halloween

Goblins and Ghosts. Mermaids and Princesses. Trick-or-treat comes this weekend and WRTI is getting ready to pass out tasty jazz nuggets.  Now, WRTI’s Meridee Duddleston samples some sweet indulgences – on the musical side.  Jazz up your Halloween with a pillowcase full of tasty tunes on WRTI, October 31 starting at 6 pm.  A special thanks to WRTI Jazz Host Bob Craig for his help in the kitchen.

No tricks...we plan on bringing you nothing but musical treats this Halloween! Tune in starting at 6 pm on Saturday, October 31st as Jeff Duperon kicks off an evening of sweet and savory jazz. Have you ever noticed how many tunes reference food, or even have food in the title?  Jeff will showcase these fun songs throughout the evening, and the delicious jazz morsels will continue with Tim Johnstone after midnight, until it's time for breakfast.

Nothing evokes the fear associated with Halloween like the sound of a well-delivered minor chord on a pipe organ. On Saturday, October 31st, from 5 to 6 pm, WRTI presents an hour of music perfectly suited to a setting sun and a night of fright!

Join us for a Halloween Organ Extravaganza, which combines thrilling organ repertoire, both traditional and novel, into a fun Halloween evening on WRTI.
