Classic Halloween Hits On TWTD

On WRCO FM 100.9 Saturday night, we will be featuring more of the greatest hits of all time.  During the fifties, sixties, seventies,  and the eighties, there were many haunting hits.   Some of them get requested all year through.  Some of our favorite Halloween hits include:  Dinner With Drac-John Zacherle "The Cool Ghoul",   Purple People Eater-Sheb Wooley,  Haunted House-'Jumpin'  Gene Simmons,  Ding Dong! The Witch Is Dead-The Fifth Estate,  Season Of The Witch-Donovon,  Witchy Woman-Eagles,  Frankenstein-Edgar Winter Group,  Spiders & Snakes-Jim Stafford,  (Don't Fear) The Reaper-Blue Oyster Cult,  and Ghostbusters-Ray Parker Junior.   By far the most popular requested songs, that fit a Halloween theme,  through the years have been the following:  Twilight Zone-Golden Earring,  Werewolves Of London-Warren Zevon,   Thriller-Michael Jackson, and Monster Mash-Bobby "Boris" Pickett.  The Monster Mash has been so popular that over the years it charted three times!  When I was just a 'wee-Nee'  back in '73, I thought it was a brand new song when it hit rock and roll radio that Summer and went all the way to the Top Ten.   I hope you will join our fun Halloween radio party Saturday night during Those Were The Days.  We will be on with all the hits between six and Midnight.  Please give me a call and stay tuned for trivia!   We will also pay tribute to another iconic rock and roller that we lost this week.  Fats Domino has always been a favorite.  Maybe we can spin a few of his amazing records Saturday night on WRCO FM 100.9.
