28 October 2017 (2 Hr. What’s This Ghost? special pt. 2!)

So we dispensed with the phone number for call in ghost stories this week, as well as with Lennon’s “Transylvania” voice and with the rule that songs cannot have ghost in the title. This week, EVERY song has ghost in the title (with the exception of the Damned song used to fill a few moments while booth software was desperately rebooted at the start of the program…) Once again, however, all songs were nominated by What’s This Called? listeners, and what a spooky, eclectic, mind-bending, bone-chilling set of spectral musical pieces you suggested!

Chill to the 1st Hour HERE!

Spook to the 2nd Hour HERE!
