This Saturday night on Those Were The Days from FM 100.9 and dot com, I will be hosting our annual Halloween party. There are so many songs with dark and scary themes which were released during the fifties through the eighties. The number one song with a Halloween theme gets requested year around. Bobby 'Boris' Pickett's Monster Mash has been a 'graveyard smash' since it first was released in 1962. It also made the charts two other times. Those Were The Days can provide the background for your Halloween parties this Saturday night. Request your favorite song (Halloween related or otherwise). We will play trivia and take you on a tour of the WRCO haunted radio station.
Some of our other favorite Halloween requests include: Purple People Eater-Sheb Wooley, Werewolves Of London-Warren Zevon, Haunted House-Jumpin Gene Simmons, Ghostbusters-Ray Parker Jr. Thriller-Michael Jackson, Witch Doctor-David Seville, Witch Queen Of New Orleans-Redbone, Frankenstein-Edgar Winter Group, Superstition-Stevie Wonder, Bad Moon Rising-C.C.R., and The Time Warp-The Rocky Horror Picture Show Cast.
Following Those Were The Days from 6 pm to midnight, we will present an encore presentation of the UW Platteville-Richland Theatre production of War Of The Worlds. That will hit the airwaves at midnight Halloween night. How cool is that? That will cap off our retro Saturday on WRCO FM 100.9 and wrco.com. Tune in if you dare and don't be too scared!
