Dieselpunk + Steampunk Culture

Radio Riel's HP Lovecraft birthday party!

HP LovecraftToday marks the 120th anniversary of the birth of H.P. Lovecraft - arguably one of the most influential horror writers of the 20th century. Modern writers like Stephen King and Clive Barker, comics writers Alan Moore and Neil Gaiman, film directors John Carpenter, Stuart Gordon, and Guillermo Del Toro, and artist H. R. Giger have all acknowledge influence from the works of H.P. Lovecraft.

In honour of the anniversary today's From the Libray selection includes an assortment of "spooky" music. Some, like the music from Shoggoth on the Roof are specifically Lovecraft inspired, while others, like Saint-Saëns' Danse macabre have a long history of association with all things scary.

Sit back and enjoy, just be careful what you dream. Click on the link below to tune in.

Sigh, once again Radio Riel doesn't live up to its claim. It's like two different people running it. Someone who promotes it with high hopes and expectations and then someone who's responsible to make it happen yet spoils the party.

I listened for about an hour and was sorely disappointed by the mix. It just seemed like typical college music from the late '90s; no Lovecraft, nothing "spooky.".

Good for Radio Riel for doing something right.
