Sometimes you think things will work on a radio show, but as I listen to this 2007 show I think I carried in the wrong music with me.
I remember in the 2nd half Engineer Ken and I looked at each other and knew...this maybe wasn't our kind of music...at least so many in a row.
But I could be wrong.
I leave it up to you to decide whether I get a thumbs up or thumbs down.
In any case, hope you enjoy it and Happy Halloween again!
Here are both halves of the show from 2007.
HALLOWEEN 2007- VAMPIRES PT.1
On this eve of All Hallows Eve, I thought we would do our show on Vampires.
Now, you will hear some music different from what you might expect from me.
Not sure if that is a good thing!
I will open with a group from Boston, then one a little closer, Long Island, My Chemical Romance, who are of the opinion that Vampires Will Never Hurt You.
The studio was invaded by a half wolf/half wild boar that I named Lon- we had to change that name in the next episode.
And we are still after all these years wondering, WHAT’S HE BUILDING IN THERE?
Got the Arctic Monkeys, and a pretty funny song about a Vampire Club by Voltaire.
There is an unmistakable sexual component to vampires, and that living for eternity is a damn good selling point too!
So, as Lon licks and slobbers all over me, we’ll end this one with Annie Lennox, and Love Song To A Vampire.
More sucking to come.

HALLOWEEN 2007- VAMPIRES PT.2 CONCLUSION
Moving on with more time spent with the Creatures Of The Night, and my own trapped-inside-with-me monster Lon, I will open this final episode with a couple of TV theme songs done by strange-named groups.
Both were very popular shows, and one was a spinoff of the other.
Still trying to find out WHAT’S HE BUILDING IN THERE?
I’ll talk a bit about old Vlad the Impaler, the model for Dracula in Transylvania. And more vampire lore.
Then some Music For Vampires (that’s what it is called), and another song named Vampires by the Umbrellas.
I’ll play one last Vampire tune that is hard to describe, but it does appeal to me. It is by a group that met here in New York called Marcy Playground, and New York plays a role in it.
I had more songs about Vampires, but it was apparent to Ken and I that maybe this really wasn’t our type of music, lol!
I don’t know what I was thinking when I was picking out these songs- but maybe it was hearing so many of them in a row that made me switch directions.
That, and Lon, now Loni, and the voices in my head were ganging up on me too, lol!
Changing on the proverbial dime, I had the flip side of an old 1950’s single, scratches and all, that was called The Monster.
A VERY interesting song, with very interesting lyrics, in which the aforementioned Monster is actually Rock & Roll.
Hey man, that was the general attitude at the time- this evil music was shaking up the country!
Check out that period’s obligatory saxophone in there.
I will close out this year’s party with The Slime- nothing to be afraid of, in fact it was a dance, lol!
Happy Halloween Everyone!!!
