It was a graveyard smash!

Even though I don’t wind up my radio to the good Doctor as often as I used to, I still get the playlists sent to me each week. Last week was part one of a 2-part Halloween edition. Since I’m getting in the party mode (yes, we actually agreed to host a Halloween party for Pepperkat), I thought I’d share.

Which are your favorites? I’m a sucker for the oldies. I still like “Purple People Eater” by Sheb Wooley, who just recently passed away. But Werecow is one of the funniest things I’ve ever heard.
