Halloween Countdown 2017: ESCAPE Radio Show–“The Abominable Snowman”!

As I’ve mentioned, I’m a big fan of old time radio shows. Another favorite program of mine is Escape. Although billed as “Designed to free you from the four walls of today for a half-hour of high adventure”, the show could be outright terrifying at times. An episode I just finished listening to is called “The Abominable Snowman” and involves four men climbing Mt. Everest on their own. One by one, their small expedition faces the challenges of the mountain and a very, very angry and carnivorous guardian of the realm.

Lefty Drawing: The Nack!

Tonight’s Lefty Drawing is a Nack, the Scandinavian counterpart of the Scottish Kelpie. Essentially these river horses come ashore as beautiful saddle horses and wait for a rider to climb onto their backs. Once a human climbs aboard, they race back to the water, and their hides become powerfully adhesive so that the rider cannot break loose. The water horse dives into the river and drowns and devours its victim.
