About The Witching Hour

Do you live in a cupboard under the stairs? Can you talk to snakes? Have you ever accidentally turned your aunt into a giant balloon? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you might be a wizard. Worried? Don’t be! The Witching Hour brings you witches and wizards up to speed on all things Harry Potter by spinning wrock tracks and featuring discussions of everything in the Potterverse. The Witching Hour was born in December 2009 to two happy parents, Sara Rasmussen and Mehera Nori, notorious and mysterious witches currently based in Walla Walla, Washington. Most recently, the known sorceress Claire "accio awesome" Johnson joined the team while Sara was away researching European ministries of magic. With Sara's return, two became three.

The witches' official bio:
Every Christmas the Weasley family gathers in their living room to listen to the latest hits on the Witching Hour. However, since the mysterious disappearance of the hosts of the Witching Hour from the Wizarding Wireless Network studios in Diagon Alley in 1998, Christmas has not been the same. Yet recent reports of wizard rock on the radio suggest the two hosts are alive and wrockin’. They appear to have relocated to Walla Walla, Washington and have taken the aliases of Mehera “this guitar is a horcrux” Nori and Sara “we r wizards” Rasmussen. Neither Mehera nor Sara are entirely certain how they ended up among muggles, but continue to celebrate the tales of their good friend Harry Potter and his triumph over He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named. In January of 2010, Sara and Mehera revived their wizard rock radio programme for the sake of maintaining their wizard culture, and for the musical enjoyment of muggles. Wizard rock is an all-encompassing genre of (w)rock, (w)folk, (w)techno, (w)rap, and lyrics written to the tune of J.K. Rowling. Though Sara and Mehera are far from their home, the Weasleys are pleased to have the show back on the air (and on iTunes) once again.
