Hooray for candy corn, toasted pumpkin seeds, clever costumes, tp'ed trees, miniature Kit Kats, and earnest efforts to summon the apparition of Bloody Mary in the bathroom mirror. (Is that a New England thing? Here are instructions if you need them . . .).
To listen to while you carve your pumpkin: WNYC's David Garland has once again put together a superlative Halloween playlist for Spinning on Air. This year's show features the Shaggs ("It's Halloween"), Cat Power ("Werewolf,"), Antony and the Johnsons ("I Fell in Love with a Dead Boy") and loads of other treats. You can listen to it (or download it) here.
