The HiFi Murders – An Occasional Podcast Halloween Special

The Occasional Podcast: Now on iTunes!

This week’s episode of The Occasional Podcast is a very special Halloween edition covering one of the most gruesome crimes ever to take place in the world of HiFi. Listener warning: The contents and description of events are extremely graphic and disturbing, which might be upsetting for some. The HiFi Murders took place on April 22, 1974 in Ogden Utah, a city home to more than one audiophile manufacturer/retailer. The fallout from the unfortunate series of events forever changed the lives of 5 victims, their families and the town.

We don our Halloween costume as true crime podcast this week, and lay down the story of The HiFi Murders with the help of Occasional Co-Host Bryan Beasley. The show may only be 25 minutes long, but it fully explores the terrifying case, trial and unique set of circumstances surrounding the robbery and hostages of the Ogden audio store tragedy.

The Occasional Podcast has launched into its 9th season with our educational series starting with Crossovers With Andrew Jones Top 3 Things You Need To Know About Streaming Audio5 things to consider when buying a tube amplifier and How To Reduce Noise and Hum In Your System, and our interview with Steve Guttenberg and Herb Reichert from earlier this season.

Our last episode drops all the up-to-date information on What’s Hot In Headphones For The Upcoming Holiday Season. Plus updates from Editor-in-Chief Marc Phillips travels abroad in a series we like to call Marc Phillips…On the Road.
