Spooky! AAT #008 – a Halloween Argyll and a four-hour Spooktacular!

I’m preparing for our annual Halloween Radio show (by the way, Halloween is my favorite time of year), and so I went back and listed the songs from last year’s Halloween Radio show. This year’s Spooky Argyll will be co-hosted by the Argyll folks and the UB folks. It will be a four-hour spooktacular, and you should listen in.

I know I’m jumping around a bit, here, but since I typed this sucker out, this is what we have for now. I’ll get back to the other episodes.

You can listen to last year’s Halloween Show here.
