Halloween Mixes!

Hey gang!

This Saturday will be a special All Hallow's Morn edition of "Take a Run at the Sun." You won't wanna miss that.

And speaking of Halloween...

I made two Halloween mixes for the new mixtape project, Mixed Tapes for Mixed Tastes!

One of them is in the old surf vein of this show (see fig. 1)
, and the other one is just a grab-bag of stuff.

I'll be playing some of these songs on Saturday...and some other songs too!! OoooOOOoo.
