Yes, that's right. Halloween is almost here and what better type of music to celebrate with? Post punk has given us some of the spooookiest jams ever and I believe it to be the official soundtrack for the holiday of Halloween. And tonight's show was my unofficial soundtrack for the official soundtrack of Halloween.
Just follow the link below to download the show make things officially unofficially official. And have a happy Halloween while you're at it!

One of the truly great producers of the post-punk era, one who would help evolve the genre and evolve himself into someone who continues to be one of the big names in mainstream music. He’s worked with many of our most beloved acts – Siouxsie and the Banshees, XTC, Peter Gabriel, Psychedelic Furs, U2, Simple Minds, the Chameleons, Big Country, the Pogues, Morrissey – to name only a few. Although I guess that was more than a few. So tonight’s show featured all songs he has produced by these beloved bands and hopefully that means it will be beloved by you as well.

The name says it all. Tonight's show featured songs that feel somewhat within the confines of our beloved post punk/new wave sound but far outside of the confines of what we might be consider cool. And I don't been "cool" in an ironic cool way, as evidenced by the air quotes. But then again I wonder if by acknowledging that very thing, I am in fact being ironic by claiming that I do not appreciate any of this music ironically. Truth be told, it is all pretty lame. But yet still good. Just ike the song says, "It's Hip to be Square" except that song really is lame. But not lame in a lame-but-good kind of way like these other songs are, nor is it, I believe, ironic-lame-but-good at this point. However, check back with me in a few minutes because this is all very subject to change.
Nonetheless, I maintain that all 20-something songs I played tonight were pretty embarrassing for me to like let along play on a radio show. To find out just how many skeletons are buried in my closet, follow the link bellow:
