Night Prowl Halloween Show


I’m proud to say that the Night Prowl Show, which I hosted on XM Satellite Radio from June, 2001 to October 2008, was famous for over-the-top Halloween shows. Early on, I got the crazy idea to use teenage tragedy songs or “Death By Teenage” songs as I like to call them as a Halloween theme, along with the traditional musical fare that we’re all used to. The teen tragedy song is really one of the most ridiculous and emotionally extreme trends to ever hit popular music and I thought the car wrecks, the gore, the ghosts and graveyard scenes of these songs really exemplified Halloween sentiment at its finest. I produced Halloween Night Prowl shows from 2001-2007, but I honestly feel that it all came together in this 2006 edition of my Halloween Spooktacular! Thanks to Warren (The RollaCoastah) of New Jersey for recording and preserving this show, as I did not record it myself. It’s because of Warren that we can all enjoy this Halloween show today. Not only will you hear the best, the craziest AND the rarest teen tragedy songs ever recorded on this program, but you’ll also her the greatest, spookiest and weirdest Halloween song of the 1950s and ’60s, REAL ghost stories as told by listeners, Willem Dafoe’s reading of the Poe classic, “The Raven,” and Cross Country Kelly’s interpretation of “The Rhyme Of The Ancient Mariner.” This is all contained within one, FOUR hour show.

Stream it now below and prepare yourself for radio like you’ve never heard it before. Let’s hope someday I’ll be able to produce a show like this on a grand scale once again. This program is literally the best radio has to offer, if I do say so myself. Enjoy and share it with everyone you know.
