Live Ledge #399: Halloween

I know I say this every year, but Halloween is the most rock and roll of all holidays. Thus it only makes sense that a Halloween-themed Live Ledge is one of the easiest shows to put together. Which is obviously why I host one almost every single year.
Finding tracks to play is so easy, even without relying on the standard Halloween tunes that one hears everywhere. Songs about ghosts, witches, zombies, vampires, and other similar subjects are always rampant in rock, so it's just a matter of scanning the library.
This year's version stands up proudly against all the previous episodes. There's brand new bands such as Uncle, Rocket 808, and Pale Lips. There's veteran punk rockers such as The Members, UK Subs, Billy Childish, and The Vibrators. There's covers of Suicide, David Bowie, and (believe it or not) Tom Petty. There's really something for everybody, so be sure to play this show next Thursday when the trick or treaters start arriving.
After listening, please go purchase those tracks you enjoy! You can find this show at almost any podcast site, including iTunes and Stitcher...or
