Welcome back to another installment of Retro Records! This time we are cheating a little bit with this offering, submitted by the Midnight Society for your listening pleasure we have something of a rare audio treat.

Apparently Nickelodeon in the 1990s during their Nick or Treat events…

…awarded some audio cassettes and flip book for their hit Are You Afraid of the Dark? TV series. Thankfully for all of us that enjoy some nice “spooky” audio drama that cassette has been uploaded on SoundCloud!

The two tales from Side A of the cassette include Tale of the Virtual Nightmare – In which a young horror fan named Jay finds himself getting his hands on a very special VHS tape…one that brings the young cinephile face to face with a monstrous evil.

The second story entitled Tale of the Lonely Doll finds Janine and her younger Sister and their Mother in danger from Talking Teri, a disheveled doll that has very peculiar ideas on what kind of games are fun.

So take a good handful of midnight dust and throw it on the fire as we listen to Side A of Are You Afraid of the Dark: Tales from the Midnight Society!
