PLAYLIST FOR “HALLOWEEN PARTY 2019” (10.26.19)

27 Oct

My Tenth Annual Halloween party with more treats than tricks. I got to play my favorite haunting melodies with  a number of them sung by some of my favorite ghosts. Of course, my favorite part every year is the game of being visited by trick or treaters and having to guess their costumes. Instead giving them candy, I hand out appropriate songs. A good time was had by all…okay, maybe only by me.
