This week the crew of Red Six To Golden Corral take a road trip to Picher, Oklahoma to guest host at HNTD Radio 99.9 FM during a late night broadcast! The crew gets on the topic of ghost stories and puts a call out to the listeners of the greater Picher area to hear some small town ghost stories! If you had the opportunity to hear the broadcast live, then let them know what you thought!
And Most Importantly…
Special Thanks to Our Friends
If you’re reading this part of the show notes please understand the following bit is a rare moment that we will break a fourth wall of sorts and write about the making of this issue of Red Six To Golden Corral. Haven’t had a chance to listen to Issue 55 yet? Then I urge you to do so but then come back here afterwards and read the rest.
Several months ago Jon came up with an idea to do a radio call in type episode of Red 6. We all loved the concept immediately and kicked around ideas of “when” and “how” we could make it work. The cast settled on doing a Halloween haunted radio call-in episode and thrilled at the idea of getting some of our friends, in and around, the podcast community involved. We had months to prepare and as we are apt to do on a semi-rare (let’s just be honest and say ‘often’) occasion, we procrastinated with scheduling and found ourselves scrambling to try and put it together before Halloween’s end. Had it not been for our understanding and gracious friends, this episode could not have happened and we would have missed out on getting to try something new and exciting.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for all your help.
While there are reports of the song dating back to British soldiers in the Crimean War (1853-1856), it certainly dates to at least World War I (1914-1918), when it was sung by American and British soldiers, and was collected in various World War I songbooks of the 1920s. The key line “the worms crawl in, the worms crawl out” appears in some versions of the otherwise unrelated song “There was a lady all skin and bone”, and may date to 1810 or earlier.It gained more popularity in present times by being included Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (1981) by Alvin Schwartz
