Dr. Zarkov’s Tiki Lounge Playlist: October 31, 2012
On this week’s show we marked the mysterioso and merrimentous celebration of Halloween, mulling the musical mysteries of the many multifarious myths and monsters, carnivorous cannibals and creepish creatures asymmetrically associated with this harrowing and hagiographic holiday, along with coming face to face with some terrifying tunes that are just plain scarifying all by themselves.
