October 27, 2017 – Halloween Music Special

Halloween season is upon us once again, which means that we here at The Arcade are back with our annual Halloween Music Special.  When it comes to this time of year, you always hear Thriller, Monster Mash, and the Ghostbusters theme being played everywhere you go.  Sure, they’re appropriate for the season and all, but sometimes, people are just lazy and fall back to those without a second thought.  Thankfully, we here at The Arcade are anything but lazy and have once again compiled a setlist of music you won’t hear anywhere else this Halloween.

October 28, 2016 – Halloween Music Special

It’s Halloween 2016 and The Arcade is back with our annual Halloween Music Special to fill up your auditory pillow case with treats of a musical sort. We strive to present a variety of songs and styles on these shows, and this year is no different.  Our adventure beings with the Ludicrous Leadoffs, which this year, is built around a central theme… haunting horror hip-hop! Did you know the Crypt Keeper did a rap song in the early 90’s?  Or that Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff made a song for A Nightmare on Elm Street 4? Have you ever heard Warwick Davis rap as the Leprechaun in Leprechaun V?  We’ve found all these oddities and play them for you in our opening block.  From there, we class the show up a bit and explore what the world of Creepy Classical and Spooky Symphonies for us.  The class, however, will only last so long as we have to include the obligatory heavy metal group.  What could be more Halloween than the image of blood raining down from the sky as sung by Slayer, or Peter Steele using his bass-baritone vocals to sing an ode to All Hallows Eve?  This Halloween show closes out by paying homage to some of the great musical talents who left their mortal coil and joined the afterlife this year as we’ll play seasonally appropriate selections from Motörhead, David Bowie, and Prince.  So tune in and let us be your soundtrack for this scary season.  As always, we encourage you to follow the iTunes links below to purchase these songs for yourself, to enjoy at Halloween and beyond.

Programming Note:  We’ll be taking the next three weeks off due to a little thing called “life” getting in the way of our recording schedule.  Mostly, it’s Dennis who is the one to blame for this.  Why?  He’s moving into a new place!  Though this is an exciting time, as anybody who has moved into a new residence can attest to, it’s a time-consuming and an all-encompassing task.  Having said that, let us reassure you that we will be back with a new episode for you on Friday, October 7th.
