77 Days Till Halloween
Shifting gears yet again … hate to say it, but a 2.5 months away from Halloween and I’m already starting to OD on this music. If I make a drastic shift, maybe I’ll be alright. So, we’ll try the Rockabilly folder. Which is pretty much just the same 50’s and 60’s surf music, only done by more recent artists. So maybe I won’t last that long. Let’s find out!
Creepniks - Graveyard Shindig (2005)
Pretty solid album here. With

More ghost stories …
Ball Records - 2 Complete Halloween Ghost Stories (1963)

More mixes! Picking up where we left off:
Dartman's Halloween Special (2009)

80 Days Till Halloween
Going to listen to more of the mixes I’ve found on various blogs and websites.
Best Ever Halloween Party Album (2009)

• The theme from “Growing Pains”, re-written to sound like “The Monster Mash” for their Halloween special
• “Crypt Jam” from Cryptkeeper (the one from “Tales From the Crypt”)
