Two hours of spooky Halloween music. Note: This episode is free from the regular genre restraints, a real free-for-all.

Who knows how many different acts will be in this show, here is some information about one I know will be played:

Bobby "Boris" Pickett:

The Monster Mash hit number one on the charts in October of 1962, and if we lived in a perfect world, it would still be there today. Pickett had been doing an impression of Boris Karloff while performing live and after he received such a great reaction from the crowd, band mate Lenny Capizzi encouraged him to do more with it. Pickett and Capizzi composed the song and The Crypt-Kickers were assembled: Leon Russell, Johnny MacRae, Rickie Page, and Terry Berg. It is rumored that, because he arrived late to the session, pianist Leon Russell is not actually on the song.

Turns out there were 37.

Countries represented: USA, Canada, England, France, Japan, Italy, Netherlands.
