WYSO Presents 'Tale Spinning Terrors!'

Rhawnie Gonzales

Frighten up your holidays with 'edge of your seat' storytelling and holiday music in this tale spinning hour of terror from WYSO Public Radio and The Yellow Springs Tale Spinners.

The hour begins with Creepy Man, a children's story told around a campfire. Then we'll visit an even creepier teen-attraction in Yellow Springs, Ohio called The Blue Hole. Our travels then take us to old Japan to hear Promise Broken, Curse Unspoken. Finally, our last destination is a terror-filled road trip in the family car.  The journey ends there... on Eyeball Bridge (this story contains graphic descriptions that may not be suitable for younger listeners. Discretion advised.)  

WYSO Public Radio and The Yellow Springs Tale Spinners have conspired to spin one dreadful and disturbing tale after another! With each story, the fright level increases! The hour is highlighted with the music of Mannheim Steamroller and The Yoshida Brothers; making this a unique Halloween program.  
The Yellow Springs Tale Spinners are: Shane Dickey, Lisa Holmes, Eric Wolf, Harold Wright and Jonatha Wright.

He began volunteering at the station in 1991 and began hosting Alpha Rhythms in February of 1992. Jerry joined the WYSO staff in 2007 as a host of All Things Considered and soon transitioned into hosting Morning Edition.
