SOME SACRIFICES HAVE TO BE MADE

What dark gods await appeasement through blood sacrifices, ladies and gentlemen?  Charlie Barker knows a few.  He’ll tell you all about three of them today.

When a betrothed couple have a picnic, they will wish they never stumbled across THE CLEARING IN THE WOODS.  Then, it’s off to Billings, Montana, as part of our “States of Fear” road trip.  Here, you will hear the real life account of the sacrifice made by the Apsáalooke tribe (also known as the Crow Native Americans).  It’s time for a BIG LEAP INTO BIG SKY.  Then, we try to make out what is going on BY THE LIGHT OF THE HONEY MOON.  It’s a bed and breakfast situated in a cozy little spot just this side of hell.

The sideshow has hit capacity, my friends.  This is not a bad thing.  It just means that we have to turn patrons away until next time.  Please, come back again.  It’s no sacrifice to do so.

FIT TO KILL

There is a fascination with serial killers and murders in general, ladies and gentlemen.  These are just as much of an oddity in the sideshow as a two-headed calf or the fire-eater.  Charlie Barker will pull back the tent flaps so you can observe the freak of nature known as the homicidal maniac.

The first psycho on the list for today is the tenant in the DUPLEX.  He’s been renting both places out for years and the landlords just found out why.  There is also an AVID LISTENER, who loves a late night radio show.  Perhaps love isn’t the right word.  Last up, it’s KILLING TIME where a woman awaiting a train departure decides to kill a little time.  Let’s hope it’s just time, anyway.

Didn’t get enough death and destruction, folks?  There’s more, but we couldn’t fit it all into this show.  Come back on Thursday for more murder and mayhem.

KILLER INSTINCTS

Today’s tales, as the kids would say, are killer.  More precisely, they are about killers.  Murder most foul.

The first story is about an annual party where a juicy murder might be the fly in the ointment that could ruin a good time.  Best KEEP IT ON ICE until afterwards.  Nobody wants to be a killjoy.  Next, we learn of THE LEGEND OF GORY GARY AND SCORCHED SARAH.  It’s all in good taste, I assure you.  Or, rather, it all tastes good? Lastly, we pay a visit to THE FINGER TREE.  Just think of it like a Christmas tree for a serial killer. Serial killers?  Anyway, you get the point.  Point?  Fingers?  Nevermind.

This time around, we took a break from the supernatural.  The circus will return next week with a trio of more stories.  These are of the supernatural variety.  Pop by, won’t you?  You have a standing invitation to the sideshow.
