Dr. Zarkov’s Tiki Lounge October 31, 2018
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 aural assaults by some truly terrifying tunes that are simply scarifying all by themselves.
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.. Radio Fairfax also can be heard on Tune In Radio at tunein.com, and streamed on smartphones by downloading the Tunein app. It also can be streamed on Roku and Google TV at: http://tinyurl.com/3uqfsz9
