Ol’ Shep has some wonderful radio shows about Halloween, but this year, for no reason other than "it’s the first one I found," I posted this one. Enjoy.
This SPECIAL SPOOKY HALLOWEEN episode of How Was Your Week Live —HOW WAS YOUR SHRIEK— was recorded live on October 17th at The Bell House in terrifying New York City!
Join GHOULIE as she interviews KRISTEN "CORN MAZE" JOHNSTON, "GORY" GABE LIEDMAN, "SCARY" SCHARPLING & WURSTER AND "SCARY" THA SQUIRREL live on stage, while "TERRIFYING" TED LEO watches!
Regret not being there live to see a surprise—and spooky—appearance by GENE SIMMONS, kind of! Marvel at the Halloween Costume Contest, which admittedly might not translate well to audio! Enjoy Ted & Julie’s SPOOKY SONG-OFF! And gird your loins for CATS fan fiction and Tawny Kitaen’s geniunely horrifying Twitter feed.
Plus—the lyrics to FRANKENSTEIN, finally! Spangles The Cat! The five things that scare Gabe! What slutty thing John Lithgow once said to Kristen on the set of 3RD ROCK! A man named Cheryl Morgan! And Gary Tha Squirrel’s favorite candies. Oh, would you were there. Here are photos!
What a show! What a memory-maker! Best Halloween Ever!
A tribute to the ad-lib storytelling art of radio great Jean Shepherd (fl. 1960s). One of his great 45-minute late-night monologues on WOR-AM/FM (Oct. 28, 1965) is here surgically slimmed to fit a half-hour program. Shepherd weaves together a humorous tale of grenade-replica cigarette lighters, the real George Washington, crime in reality vs. on "Route 66," and (the best part of the story) life in Covington, KY—the redneck quarter of Cincinnati, Ohio—in the 1950s.
Prepare to be chilled and thrilled by three children’s Halloween records.
