 6 AM
with Angela Mariani
Something Wicked This Way Comes - "Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn, and cauldron bubble." This week on Harmonia, we'll catch a fright listening to scary sounds for Halloween…but Halloween was not always reserved for trick-or-treaters. In addition to being a major holiday for the pagan and Wiccan world, some aspects of Halloween and the Day of the Dead also have roots in the Catholic church, as we will hear.
 7 AM - 11 AM
Sunday Baroque
Halloween is coming up this week, and in ancient times, the occasion was observed as the eve of the new year, a time when the worlds of the living and the dead overlapped. So this spooky edition of Sunday Baroque features composers who died unusual or mysterious deaths.
