A must-have Halloween Special!!!! An entertaining hour-long exploration of the eerie yet elusive character of Dracula in films, literature, music and art.

Vlad_tepes_small Dracula has captured our collective imagination for generations, from Vlad the Impaler to Bela Lugosi to Bram Stoker. But who is the real Dracula? In this hour-long special, we look at the films, literature, music and art that all attempt to construct the image of this eerie yet elusive character.

Strange Enchantment: Jazz for Halloween

Music for the holiday from Duke Ellington, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Kay Starr, and others. We'll also hear comedian Lenny Bruce's impersonation of Dracula as a road-weary musician, as well as the haunting true tale of the New Orleans axe man--a murderer who promised to spare anyone who was playing jazz.
