Ghost Radio is a terrifying novel about a ghost-story call-in radio show that inadvertently opens a doorway into the paranormal, giving voice to the dead and instigating an epic battle for the souls of the living.
From the cramped bowels of a dimly lit radio station, Ghost Radio is beamed onto the airwaves. More than a call-in show to tell scary stories, Ghost Radio is a sanctuary for those sleepless denizens of the night, lost halfway between this world and the next.
Joaquin, the hip, melancholy host, fields calls from believers and detractors alike. He is joined in the booth by his girlfriend, Alondra, and his engineer, Watts. When a huge radio conglomerate offers to syndicate the show, neither Joaquin, Alondra, nor Watts is remotely prepared for what is about to happen.
Joaquin remains a skeptic, even as he begins to feel himself drawn further and further into the terrifying stories he solicits on the radio. Slowly, he finds himself unable to distinguish between the real world and the world populated by the nightmares on Ghost Radio. He is forced to confront his past and his own mortality in order to save that which is most precious to him and repair the crumbling wall between the living and the dead.
Very well written with a very unique style in telling the story. There were a few times I found myself lost but the writing would always back itself up and give me the hints I needed to keep up. The ending surprised me, which is unusual since most stories today follow a formula that few deviate from. I recommend this one. The narrator sounded very convincing as the main character and kept me interested along the entire length of the story.

This was a waste of time & a credit! Slow moving, no plot, no ultimate pay off to make listening to hours of drivel worth it. I kept waiting for the story to pick up and to make some sort of sense, but it never happens. Save yourself the tedium and the regret of wasting part of your life on this snoozer.

The only scary thing about this book was the time and credit I spent on it.
