The Black Mass 29: The Feeder by Carl Linder

Join us on Fri­day, Sep­tem­ber 3rd, at a lit­tle after 12 noon or 4pm Pacif­ic time / 8pm or mid­night in the UK,  for the penul­ti­mate episode in the land­mark radio dra­ma series The Black Mass, cre­at­ed by the late Erik Bauers­feld and his col­leagues at the Paci­fi­ca radio sta­tion KPFA in Berke­ley, Cal­i­for­nia, over fifty years ago. In 30 chill­ing tales of mys­tery, imag­i­na­tion and the human mind, The Black Mass brings you some of literature’s most haunt­ing sto­ries, by mas­ters of the craft — many of whom are best-known in oth­er fields. Our thanks as always to John Whit­ing, pro­duc­er of many of these record­ings, and of course to Erik Bauers­feld him­self.

This land­mark radio dra­ma series draws to a close next week, with our final tale from The Black Mass.

Note that the episode will not start until the track play­ing at the top of the hour has fin­ished, so the actu­al start time of the episode will be a few min­utes after the hour.

3 September: The Feeder by Carl Linder

Erik Bauers­feld not­ed the fol­low­ing about this tale: “Carl Lin­der from Min­neso­ta came to our KPFA stu­dio a long time ago and asked me to per­form a recent mono­logue he had writ­ten. I liked it and did so. We broad­cast it, then he left nev­er to return. …he per­formed in San Fran­cis­co at a cer­tain place and time, and then again left, seem­ing­ly for­ev­er. Wish you well, Carl, if you are, wher­ev­er you are.”
