A funny thing happened while I was starting to put together this week’s episode of Radio Free Charleston International. I sat down in front of my computer like I normally do, and began to assemble the music line-up and then…

I sort of blacked out.

I don’t know how long I was out, but when I came to, there, on my computer, was a finished program. It was not RFC International, though. This was Radio Free Charleston Horror Theater International, hosted by the mysterious Count Rudolf and his assistant, Igor.

I was a bit stunned. Count Rudolf had previously shown up only on the occasional Halloween episode of the video version of Radio Free Charleston. This was a bit unprecendented. Still, I listened to the show, and it was pretty good. With my deadline fast approaching, I decided to go ahead and run this bizarre Halloween mutation of the internet radio show where I get to play whatever I want. You can hear it Thursday at 3 PM, Friday at 7 AM and 10 PM, Saturday at 11 AM, and it’ll probably turn up as part of our special Halloween programming on Monday.

I must say that Count Rudolf put together a pretty good playlist. Check it out…
