The Jewel Case: Dead & Undead (10.31.19)


This week's theme, in honor of that spookiest of holidays, is DEAD & UNDEAD- we'll be spinning tunes about ghosts, vampires, zombies, and such from Red Sovine to Marianne Faithfull to Outkast to the Misfits, with a multitude of stops in between, so stock up on garlic, stakes, incantations, baseball bats..."whatever gets you through the night" as a wise man once said. It'll be a scream.
