Episode #107 - Halloween!

Time again for our Halloween podcast! Full of horrifyingly good treats for you - hope you enjoy it! (A little side note - the very last song has an 80's twist to it, although the song itself is from the 70's. Listen for names Dale & Terry Bozzio being mentioned. Terry was the drummer and is heard speaking during the song, and he refers to his girl, Dale. They are, of course, two of the founding members of Missing Persons).
