Friday, October 30 at 6 pm (PST). Spectral Transmissions: A ghost story radio show.

Join us for a short welcome introduction on Zoom leading into a 45 min downloadable ghost-themed radio show with hosts Donal Mosher and Michael Palmieri (renowned NW documentarians and storytellers).

Spectral Transmissions is an audio and video/multimedia event created in the style of 1930s/1940s radio show that includes folk tales, memories, and personal accounts of hauntings from the supernatural to the political.

It is interwoven with original music, clips from radio, TV, and cinema that deal with the idea of the haunted story, the intimacy of the voice, and general “ghostliness” in media. In advance of releasing the audio program, your hosts Michael Palmieri and Donal Mosher, will do a special live intro to present the show.

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
