New Tilley Hat

Halloween songs

Yesterday's Shockwave is up on the audio site and podcast link. Brian and I discussed Mars (it's close!), chocolate in space, Miers/DeLay et al, then played some music appropriate to the season.

magentamn was curious as to what songs I played for Halloween. I had brought a bunch, and wound up playing four:
Goo Goo Ga Ga by Joe Scruggs
Idumea/City of the Damned by Folk Underground (last listing on right)
These Goulish Things by Zander Nyrond
Shaking of the Sheets by Steeleye Span, after which I explained a bit about medieval plague songs. (I had the Howard Harrison version of "St. James Infirmary" cued up, but didn't have time.)
