Psychedelic Halloween: “The Music of Erich Zann”

Today’s show will be The Naked Cosmonaut reading H.P. Lovecraft’s “The Music of Erich Zann,” over amazing, weird, scary, beautiful music.  “The Music of Erich Zann” was written in December 1921 and first published in the March 1922 issue of National Amateur.

There’s way more music here than can be played in 2 hours (this playlist is actually 3 hours and 21 minutes of music), but since The Naked Cosmonaut will be reading we’ll play these when appropriate – kind of like radio theater.

Turn on. Get comfortable. Tune in.
