Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year. The leaves are in full color, their smell drifts on the cool air. The nights are a longer and feel darker. There is mystery to the season.

There are many songs that match this mood.  Some of them you know well, others may surprise you. Join me on Friday, October 30th from 4pm to 6pm for music from Warren Zevon, Sting, Kirsty MacColl, Eels, Concrete Blonde, and Sea Wolf. You never know what might pop up or who might drop by, so pull out your copy of "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" and lock the doors. It's time for haunting and howling.

Trick or treat!
