Darkling Eclectica, Episode 1750: A Huge Mouldy Hallowe'en

This week:

The Huge Mouldy Heads were in town. Their house up north was a little close to some of the fires, y'see...

Unfortunately, the show got a little exciting with needles falling out of turntable cartridges and all, so I didn't have a chance to keep a playlist. I have definite recollections of hearing Peter Lorre in a radio adaptation of Poe's "The Black Cat," then we heard two different reciters more or less simultaneously telling us about "The Tell-tale Heart." We had Boris Karloff reading us the end of "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" and Thurl Ravenscroft singing the song from the Disney cartoon version of the story. The music of Andrzej Panufnik and Tom Hoffmann played pretty much continuously in the background, and I managed to slip in Willie Bobo's "Fried Neckbones" at least once. A sprinkling of Vincent Price and the usual random assortment of audio clips provided texture, and we all lived happily ever after. Thanks again to the Huge Mouldy Heads for stopping by!
