Good sound quality on this one... but terrible script.

A bagpipe playing ghost comes between a man and his fiancee. It seems that truly anything can happen in India.

Maybe it is a poor script, but it is notable because if you are a fan of ghost stories, how many times do you get a bag-pipe playing ghost? My one question is are these real bag-pipes the ghost is playing such as a pipe organ playing in a church when there is nobody (alive) in the church, or are these phantom bag-pipes that only exist in the ghostly realm? A similar question is when a ghost is a soul surviving their bodily death, where do they find their ghostly clothes?

I live a good bag-pipe story!

Don

Great sound, and another funny ghost like the wee matey, Canterville.

Ok. With Mr. Dann being such a prolific writer, he’s bound to write some duds. So I was tempted to give this a down vote but could not bring myself to do so. Neither can I recommend this one. A light hearted ghost story, but dull I’m afraid.

I'm sorry. I generally really enjoy Radio Mystery Theater. But, I, honestly, couldn't wait for this one to be over.
