Episodes

Soaring through the inky black night

Silent as a vulture in flight,

The dread ship Calpurnia hovers out of sight.

Wicked as a pumpkin's grin,

Deadlier than homemade gin,

The Davenport sisters are more fun than sin.

The Ducole Company sends this short missive,

On this night when in ghosts we all believe,

have a Spooktacular O' hallow's Eve!

Join Emmett and Mingan as they revel in the history, myth and music of Halloween.

Episode 140: Fall Back

Pumpkins in the cornfields.

Gold among the brown.

Leaves of rust and scarlet .

Trembling slowly down.

Birds that travel southward.

Lovely time to play.

Nothing is as pleasant.

As an autumn day!

After a rather warm autumn day, the sisters are both pining for the cool fall weather. So, they play songs that make them think of autumn in hopes that it might return.
