    Jim, I heard this within the last 6 weeks. I thought it was on Relic Radio, but I could have picked it up somewhere else. I wonder if it could have had another name, but then i don’t think so. Nevertheless, I am glad you put it up. It is a very good horror story, well done and very quickly in such a short epidsode. I also say lots of fun, a simple superstition played out in this manner. I was always told not to walk on a grave, but I never heard that I would die. Of course as a teenager we sat on a few graves just to balk the saying. Maude Goone and William Yeats were in the occult and were said to have made love on top a grave once. Graveyards are quite a fascination. Thanks Mark for the suggestion. Do play it again sometimes, Jim.
