Cadabra Records

Horror stories on vinyl! This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we digress a little bit to talk about Cadabra Records and their “nightmares on vinyl.” These are spoken word readings or full cast audio plays of classic horror stories, set to atmospheric soundscapes and wrapped in evocative sleeve art. They’re part of a larger tradition of (often horror-centric) storytelling recordings but, primarily, they’re just plain cool as heck! Pick one up, dial the lights down low and have a spooky evening!

Unionization and collective bargaining are an excellent way for workers to ensure they get that fair share. For updates on the process, follow the union Twitter and put “We Roll Together” in the notes field of your online orders to show your support!
