Song: RISK! Theme by Wormburner and John Sondericker
Radio Story: Snowglobe by Kevin Bohl
The music playing behind the story is incredibly distracting. I miss when we would just let the stories speak for themselves instead of fluffing them up woth music and sound effects. It distracts and doesn’t add to the experience.
What’s the name of the bar in the story?
The bar in the story is the Brooklyn Inn.
Every now and then, we hear from people who don’t like that we have music and sound design in the radio style stories. On our end, we like it. We do not at all agree that it doesn’t add to the experience. About 75% of the content we produce are stories told live in front of an audience that don’t have music or sound design. But from the very first episode of RISK! in October of 2009, we’ve also included these radio style stories to add variety to the listening experience. – Kevin
Beautiful story! Melts my heart.
I agree the music adds to the immersive experience of the stories, please don’t change it.
There is some beautiful music playing at the end of Mr. Bohl’s story, could someone please identify it for me?
May, the music at the end (and also very beginning) “In The Wee Small Hours Of The Morning” as performed by Oscar Peterson and Ben Webster. Is that the one you’re asking about?
This is my favorite story. I listen to it every year since it came out.
My 1st time hearing this story.
It’s 3:50 a.m. Jan 01. 2021!
Perfect New Year’s Eve/ Morning..Story!
Falling asleep with Dreamy Holiday
Wishes that can come True!
This is the ultimate luxury……beautiful lazy jazz providing the perfect backdrop to Kevin’s dulcet tones. I felt drawn in completely and didn’t want to leave.
This was a great story and I thought the background music was great. Kevin made me feel like I was there in the moment. My girlfriend Diane and I met Kevin in a little bar in Brooklyn one night a couple of weeks ago and I could tell he was a great story teller. Thanks for the other stories Kevin.
