Notes and other random things: This episode is devoted to all the creepy, crawly and spooky things that make up the Halloween season. This is more of a classic style mixtape like the ones I used to create "back in the day".
In selecting these songs, it became apparent that there were SO many more that could have and, one could argue, should have gone into this mix. It was really surprising, as I rummaged through my music collection, how many songs aligned so well with All Hallow's Eve. It was a much more difficult task to whittle it down to an hour's worth than I would have expected. I went with this list because I felt it stayed, for the most part, in line with what this podcast is all about. Michael Jackson may be the glaring exception, but I couldn't justify leaving that classic off of a Halloween mix.
Apologies to great bands like Skinny Puppy, Psychic TV, X Marks The Pedwalk, The Misfits, Killing Joke and all the others who I was forced to leave off this mix because of time limitations. Perhaps next year, I'll do something a little more bizarre and obscure.
Have a safe and fun Halloween, everyone!
