Snyder's Feeling the Pressure is one of the collectibles found in Alan Wake. It is one of Pat Maine's radio shows.


Pat Maine: I just stepped outside to catch a breath of fresh air, and let me tell you the weather is getting heavy! Nights like this make me especially glad I'm here talking to you and not home in bed. Once the weather takes a turn like this, I can't sleep at all; it's all... tangled bedsheets and dark thoughts, punctuated by the occasional plunge into nightmare. Is it just me? Well, perhaps it is, but I hope I can make the night a little bit easier to get through... Caller, you're on KBF-FM.

Walter Snyder: Hey, Pat, it's Walt Snyder.

Pat Maine: What's on your mind, Walt?

Walter Snyder: Well, I ain't the way you are, but, well, uh, I can't sleep either, you know? I've been just staring out of the window here, trying to make sense of it all, but... I ain't been drinking either, you know, I just...

Pat Maine: Well, you sound like a man with a problem with a problem, Walt.

Walter Snyder: Yeah. Yeah, uh... I had a, uh, you know, an argument with Danny, you know Danny -- and then I got in trouble with the law, you know, and I'm... I´m just... well.

Pat Maine: I heard something like that, Walt.

Walter Snyder: Yeah. Well, you know, he's -- you know, Danny's my best friend and they let me out on bail today... and now I'm just a alone here at the window, you know, waiting. Man, there's something in the air tonight, man!

Pat Maine: Mm. I was just outside looking up at the sky above our broadcast tower thinking the same thing. What're you waiting for, Walt?

Walter Snyder: I... I don't know. You know, something's gonna happen. You know? I gotta, I gotta... I... I think I better go.

Pat Maine: Well, Walt, maybe--

Walter Snyder: No. Thanks, Pat.

Pat Maine: Haaahhh. Well, good luck to you, Walt, hang in there. Let's take a little break, folks, this weather's really something else, huh?


The radio holding this collectible can be found in the Sparkling River Estates trailer park, on the back porch of a trailer located near Rose Marigold's trailer.


  • The song heard after this radio show is How Can I Be Sure by Anomie Belle.
  • On the KBF-FM Station's broadcast tower, mentioned by Pat Maine on this show, a manuscript page can be found which further expands on Walter Snyder's situation.
