Welcome to Weirdsville - The Silly Side of Halloween

I'm sure most Halloween fanatics are already aware of this, as it's a couple of years old by now, but I've really been digging this free and fun internet radio show.

I've been streaming Welcome to Weirdsville - The Silly Side of Halloween via the Shoutcast Radio app on my Droid, and it's really a kooky and fun listen. These are my kind of Halloween songs, from the well known classic novelties to the really obscure and bizarre, with comedy bits acting as bumpers.

From the official press release in 2008:

Welcome to Weirdsville, part of the NeverEndingWonder Halloween Radio Empire, plays all the Halloween novelty hits and plenty of Halloween & horror related novelty music and comedy bits that you'll have a hard time finding elsewhere. Everything from Monster Mash & The Purple People Eater to hundreds of crazy horror themed songs from the big band era, the monster craze of the 50s & 60s right up to present day.

You'll hear Spike Jones, Weird Al, Dickie Goodman, Allen Sherman, Bob McFadden, Sheldon Allman, Elvira, Zacherle and hundreds more.

Added to the mix recently were The Munsters at Home, The Addams Family TV Soundtrack, Astro Al's Psychedelic Drive-In Music, horror movie radio promos from the early 60s, and dozens more monster novelties and breakin records.

It's kitschy retro Halloween fun at it's finest. In other words, right up my alley, and, I dare suspect, most of yours as well! If you haven't given it a listen, go check it out right now.
