Trick Or Treat With TWTD & Get Ear Candy!

Saturday night I will host our annual Those Were The Days Halloween songs party on FM 100.9.  We will play some of the best haunting classics from the fifties through the eighties.  Some of these songs are requested the entire year.   Monster Mash by Bobby 'Boris' Pickett is still loved by many.   It is a song that made the Billboard charts three different years.  The last time was in the Summer of 1973!   Songs with horror movie themes have been popular since the start of rock and roll.  Every once in a while I discover a lost classic that I have never heard before.  A few years ago a listener pointed out 'The Man With The Weird Beard' by Arthur Godfrey.  That is truly a weird one that was released originally way back in 1947.  Maybe it was written about Solid Gold Dancer Ray Schroeder?  Other Those Were The Days faves include:  Frankenstein-Edgar Winter,  Haunted House-'Jumpin' Gene Simmons,  The Blob-The Five Blobs (one guy did this and his name was Bernie Nee....related to me?),  Werewolf-Five Man Electrical Band,  The Legend Of Wholly Swamp-Charlie Daniels Band,  Thriller-Michael Jackson,  Spooky-Classics IV,  Season Of The Witch-Donovan,  and Laurie (Strange Things Happen)-Dickie Lee.  I hope you will be able to attend this weekends Those Were The Days Halloween party on FM 100.9 from 6 until Midnight Saturday night.  Ask your parents if you can stay up until Midnight.  You can request any pop radio classic from the fifties through the eighties.  We will have a six pack of trivia questions for you and perhaps you will be a winner!
