It is the weekend before Halloween and I'm at home just hanging out and trying to recover from a ridiculously busy week. Did you get it? Just hanging out? ANYWAY - A big thanks to all of the Radio Heroes who have called, texted or emailed in their pledges during the first few days of the KMSU Fall Pledge Drive. Talking to so many of you and hearing why you love and support KMSU is always inspiring and humbling. If you have not yet pledged, please don't forget to do so by next Friday. We hope to end the Pledge Drive on November 4th, and we can only do it with the help of all our listeners. Scroll on down the blog and have a look at all the thank you gifts we have available when you make a pledge. There are a lot to choose from, but more importantly your financial support keeps KMSU blasting out of you radio. That is a thank you gift all it's own/
On Monday we will be playing Lux Interior's Purple Knif Radio Show to celebrate Halloween. In between flipping over record sides, we will of course play some music by The Cramps. That means last week was my last time to play Halloween music, and I forgot to play two of my favorites. Thank goodness I can at least play them here on our blog.
The first song is a bit creepy on it's own, but when you toss it into the soundtrack of the film Zodiac it becomes shiver inducing. Have a listen to Hurdy Gurdy Man by Donovan.
The second song I forgot to play is Knoxville Girl by The Louvin Brothers. I did a Countdown To Halloween Blogpost on this dark lyric song a few years back after hearing it for the first time. I'd place it along the likes of Jack Kittel's Psycho. Have a listen.
Have a great rest of your Saturday everybody, and try to watch a scary movie if you can. Don't forget that on Monday morning we will be revealing all the data from the six E.S.P. Radio Tests we did. Are KMSU listeners psychic? You will have to tune in to find out!
