Hello, partygoers!

Welcome to Part 2 of the Listening Party’s Halloween Spooooooktacular!!!! We know it’s more in line with American Thanksgiving, but due to some bad planning – like when a character returns to the haunted house at night instead of in broad daylight – we ended up with a show that outstayed its welcome more than the demon in The Exorcist. So – like the neck of a teen who’s just had sex – we severed the show into two parts, and this week we present the grisly remains.

Once again, our remit: To counter Sneaky Dragon co-host Ian Boothby’s claim that there is only one Halloween song and that song is Bobby “Boris” Pickett’s “Monster Mash”, we decided to put together a selection of Halloween-themed or Halloween-adjacent tunes for your next Halloween party or summer camp bloodbath! Also, we read and respond to a bunch of your great comments.
