Podcast: Halloween Spooktacular
Episode #15-44 | airing 10-28-15

Bluegrass Ghost by Terry Irwin

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. It’s a combination of the Autumnal weather and the brilliant colors but also sinister songs of the supernatural intertwined with tradition are very appealing. We’ll hear classics from Archie Fisher, Anne Hills and Tim O’Brien along with some new music for the season by Maggie Sansone and a recording which may bring back some memories for listeners who grew up in the 50’s and 60’s. Our Halloween program is all treats and just a few tricks.
