Dr. Zarkov’s Tiki Lounge Playlist: October 30, 2013
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 that are asymetrically associated with this harrowing and hagiographic holiday, along with coming face to face with some truly terrifying tunes that are simply scarifying all by themselves.
