There are places in our world where fiction and dreams can come true.

Alan Wake, Radio Show #1: A Famous Deerfest Guest

In Alan Wake, there are eleven radio shows that the player can collect by interacting with radios around Bright Falls. All shows are present within the first four episodes of the game. In the show, we receive a personal look at the town through the eyes of Pat Main, the KBF-FM and Night Owl radio host, and hear perspectives from guest callers. 

Episode One. Welcome to Bright Falls. When the Wakes arrive at Cauldron Lake, you have the option to explore the house on two different occasions; before turning on the power generator and before heading upstairs to see Alice's surprise. If you head to the back porch with incredible views over the water, you will find a radio by the steps. When you interact with it, Alan will turn it to the local KBF-FM radio show.

When Pat Maine, the local radio host, teases the arrival of a new guest he meets on the ferry, Rose Marigold can't contain her excitement as the guest caller. She divulges his name, labelling him her "favorite writer".


Pat Maine: The Deerfest guests have already started to arrive. Just ran into one on the ferry... a famous artist, no less. We'll see if we can rope him into an interview later on. Now, let's go to the phones. Caller, you're on KBF-FM.

Rose Marigold: Hi, Pat, it's Rose! (Kitchen noises from the diner can can be heard in the background)

Pat Maine: Why, hello, Rose. What's on your mind?

Rose Marigold: I know who that famous artist was. It was Alan Wake, wasn't it? He's my favorite writer.

Pat Maine: Well, Rose, I--

Rose Marigold:  I just saw him at the diner! Oh, I am so excited he's here!

Pat Maine: I'm sure he's glad to be here too. Well, folks, I guess the secret's out. This is Pat Maine on KBF-FM, and now, some music.
