I’ve got about a dozen of the Did You Hear That? CDs in circulation with reviewers and the reviews are starting to come in! I’ll keep updating this post as they arrive, but so far, it’s been positive!

  • October15th: Geeky Godmother — “It’s a splendid collection for this time of year. Storyteller Hickey does a fine job of reviving a very old tradition.
  • October 19th: Storyteller.net— “Many of the tracks contain music and sound effects, creating a feel of old-time radio shows. There’s even a bit of Canadian-influenced history here, too. Fans of creepy storytelling will be satisfied with their purchase of these stories.”
  • October 29th: Lithium Magazine“This is the perfect time to explore a collection of scary stories, where tales are not just creepy but are rich with culture and history both local and abroad. [Hickey] does fine work in bringing these tales to life. He’s provided a fantastic outlet of reviving the scary story tradition of Halloween, something that would add great life (or death) to your upcoming party.”
