The Retro Cocktail Hour Halloween Spook-tacular

This year's Halloween special is a hip-shakin', finger-snappin' monster mash.

We'll hear classic albums like Alfred Hitchcock's "Music To Be Murdered By," "Poe for Moderns," and "Shock: Music for Hi-Fi." The show's chockful of goodies from TV and movies with memorable music from "The Addams Family," "The Ghost and Mr. Chicken," and "The Bat." Plus, there's insane, spook-ified rock'n'roll by "Screamin' Jay Hawkins," "Nervous Norvous," and" Frankie Stein and his Ghouls." And we'll feature trailers for cheesy movies like "The Brain That Wouldn't Die," "Caltiki, the Immortal Monster," and "The Alligator People."

It's party music for grave robbers!
