URN’s Halloween Terror-Cast

4th November 2010

It’s Halloween (well it was on Sunday!), and to mark the occasion here at URN we had a special fright-night broadcast – a six-hour extravaganza that went on until one in the morning!!

After Dark’s, Cheeka kicked off the evening with two hours of ‘Haunted-House Music’, favourites from Michael Jackson’s Thriller to Gorilaz’ Ghost Train. We were then joined by the ‘No Pulse’ team who gave us the round up on the days Halloween related headlines – including tales of headless geese and zombies on the loose around University Park.

Of course we did the staple Halloween activities of fancy dressing, and pumpkin carving in true Blue Peter Style before setting off Trick-Or-Treating around the halls of University Park. We also found time for our women’s speech show ‘Some Witches Do’ and a production of Poe’s, ‘The Tell Tale Heart’ by the URN Dramatists.

We also had a couple of parodies entitled ‘The Fear’ by Killy Allen and ‘Mr Frightside’ by The Killers. All of this, and we staved off a zombie attack in the studio! You can hear this and see a load of pictures of the night below!!
