As promised, here's a special Halloween treat. James Lileks has graciously allowed us to post his podcast The Diner on Ricochet. From James himself:
I’ve been sitting at the counter of the Diner for a long, long time. Wrote my first dispatch almost 30 years ago in my column at the college paper. Had a late-night two-hour radio show on a 50,000 watt flamethrower station in the 90s; resurrected the show in podcast form in the middle of the previous decade. There’s a lot of backstory to the show, but I did this episode as an introduction for new patrons. It’s just a rambling, unplanned chat with musical interludes - a guy at the next stool at the counter, talking about this and that. This installment concerns old radio horror shows and Halloween music from the 50s. Have a seat. Try the pie.
The direct link to the episode is here (if you're a subscriber to the Ricochet Podcast or if you listen on Stitcher, it will also appear there).
