Another addiction of mine includes Online Radio, Blogs and Audio plays.
My favourite Online Music Radio stations include

Gentleman Jims Cabaret on 365

Some of my Radio Drama Series favourites include
- Nightfall – A radio drama series produced and aired by CBC Radio from July 1980 to June 1983. Primarily a supernatural/horror series. An alternative site address for downloads is here.
- Mysterious Universe – lot of crazy sci fi information on this and great info on a box we don’t talk about.. which features in the movie The Possession.
- Chilling Tales – you can also find these guys on YouTube or download and listen using a podcast app, alternatively the website is her http://chillingtalespodcast.com/ and there is a solid back catalogue of horror stories being formed here, worth a check.
- No Sleep I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to this podcast as I walk to work in the mornings, it certainly does keep me on my toes as the world is rushing by, although I doubt I’ll listen to it on the way home when it’s dark and I’m in the woods alone.. *shudder* great podcast and worth the subscription, if only to hear more of the lovely David Ault! *swoon*
I’ve been given a heads up about some new podcasts that I’m going to try and check out at some point. but here’s some info if you want to check them out yourself.
- Small Town Horror
- Uncanny Country
- Night Time
Another short series I’d like to add to the list is Dead of Night Radio, sadly it seems to have died a terrible death in 2011, but the podcasts still seem to be up and running, they promised some longer episodes in 2012 but I haven’t seen anything.but check out the 7 episodes and additional content and maybe we a few more comments this old baby will burn again.. oh wait I’m not allowed to burn babies anymore..
You can’t ignore the written world when it comes to movies, Books, Comics and Graphic Novels play a large part in the inspiration for the big screen.
