All the ghouls, goblins, duppys, and dreads gathered with Dr. StrangeDub & DJ Baby Swiss for the annual “Echo Chamber of Horrors” special! And what a howling good show – with layers of special effects & soundbytes, including the movies “Dracula”, “Frankenstein”, “The Exorcist”, and more. Got the party started with the brand new “Halloween Verse” from Tribal Realities (featuring Deno Sandz), and featured the 2015 installment in the “Halloween at High Noon” album series from High Noon Records — this one being titled “les Mort Gothique”. Of course we had tons of scary dubwise music and quite a varied cast of characters in this year’s special including: Tino Corp., Phantom Power, Dubology, Piper Street Sound, Blue Vitriol, The Divine Sham, Grace Jones, Mungo’s Hi-Fi, Gorillaz, Squidly Cole, Flesh Creeps, Raz Mesinai, Max Romeo & the Upsetters, DJ Spooky, The Drastics, The Specials, Jean-Paul Dub, George Palmer & Kobo, Pablo Gad, Dubblestandart/Subatomic Sound (feat. Lee “Scratch” Perry), and many more. We even had a cool dubstep remix of “This Is Halloween” from the movie “The Nightmare Before Christmas” by SkitlEZ; a cover version of theme music from the movie “Halloween” by Monster Maker; and Beats Antique’s very cool remix of the theme from “Friday the 13th”. Quite a scary program from the dungeon of Dub!

We speak with Laurie Foos about her new novel The Blue Girl. She is the author of five previous novels: Before Elvis There Was Nothing, Ex Utero, Portrait of the Walrus by a Young Artist, Twinship, and Bingo Under the Crucifix

Samhain (sow-un) is the Celtic festival of transition from summer to winter – a time when the Celts celebtared the transition to their new year. It was a time when the other world came closest to this one both physically and spiritually. Many of the traditions and rites of Samhain were adopted by the early Church into the holy fectival of All Hallows Eve (All Saints Eve) which came to be called Halloween.
