Dr. Zarkov’s Tiki Lounge Playlist October 25, 2017
On this week’s Dr. Zarkov’s Tiki Lounge radio show we will dig deep into a shambolic celebration of Halloween, its many multifarious myths and monsters, carnivorous cannibals, creepish creatures and beast that go bump in the night.
Dr. Zarkov’s Tiki Lounge show is broadcast on Wednesdays, 5-6 pm Eastern Standard Time (2-3 pm on the West Coast and 10-11 GMT in Europe) at www.radiofairfax.org.
