This week's special Halloween episode features a double dose of Texarkana thrills and chills.

Part 2 is a conversation with Pamula Pierce Barcelou, whose father, Charles B. Pierce, made two iconic horror movies — “The Legend of Boggy Creek” and “The Town That Dreaded Sundown” — in and around Texarkana, based on true local stories.

Introducing "Tune In Texarkana"

Here's a taste of "Tune In Texarkana," a new podcast from the Gazette's Starbear Studio focused on local musicians. From Episode 1, BIG$ NovaGawd performs "You Vogue, I Meditate." The podcast's monthly episodes will feature host Erin DeBlanc interviewing artists across the spectrum of the Texarkana music scene, and each will include performances recorded live.
