    O.K. now. Let's see. Show # 605! Halloween Pt.2! Revenge Of The Candy! Look at all that nice candy! My dentist will be able to buy himself a new boat after I eat it all. The HORROR! THE PAIN! THE BILLS! And even WORSE! If that's not enuff to scare you, it's also the Day Of The POLITICIAN! Ever know one that you could trust? I haven't. May God and BUDDAH please save me! Thank You very Much, Little Steven, for another 5 Star Special! Also would like to thank the Administrator for getting the excellent show up into the Archives so quickly! EXCELLENT WORK! One thing, however. I'm getting complaints about NOT listing the musical beds! I know that they are being played but we do miss the listings. Oh Well! Musical Highlights! Set 1. Always good to hear I Want Candy by Bow Wow Wow, who do a very good version of the tune originally done by The Strangeloves. Does anybody know what happened to Bow Wow Wow? Maybe the Dog-Catcher got 'em! Nice sound byte by Mr. Eddie Phillips, who was the leader of Creation, who give us Nightmares. It's always great to hear Creation because they were one of the very best British groups who never really charted here in the USA! Set 2. Dedicated to the Tuts, from all the way back to Ancient Egypt. As you said, Stevie, they were very surprised to uncover the ONLY undisturbed tomb from way back in 1324 B.C., when they dug it up on Nov. 4, 1992. Yes, the Great King Tut! Rather ironic that they figured he died from head trauma with the chief suspect being his wife. Who else? Musically, we open with Mr. Steve Martin's King Tut, from 1978, originally shown on Saturday Night Live. The Bangles follow with Walk Like An Egyptian, which we used to call Walk With An Erection! Now, that could be painful. Moving along to Set 3. Open with the Excellent I Had Too Much to Dream by the Electric Prunes, which was a big hit in 1966. It also opens your truly excellent cd, "Halloween A GO-GO". I finally got around to reviewing that fine collection on Amazon. I gave it a very well deserved 5 Stars! Now, what about Pt. 2? It's been a while, Stevie. How about it? I forgot to mention that Set 3 was your blood-sucking set. Great tale of how both Dracula and Frankenstein were BOTH brought to life by the minds of Mary Shelly and Dr. John Polidori, during a hallucinogenic-drenched night in 1816, at a villa in Switzerland. the whole tale inspired the 1986 film "Gothic", which was directed by the rather eccentric Ken Russell.Moving along to Bram Stoker's Dracula and also Vlad the Impaler, who greeted the invading armies with over 20,000 Turkish visitors impaled on Stakes! EEYAHH! After The Electric Prunes, we get the great Roky Erickson, former leader of The 13th Floor Elevators, with the Aliens who deliver Creature With The Atom Brain, which was taken from Roky's excellent 1980 L.P. "The Evil One", which, boys and girls, has just been reissued on precious VINYL, the way music SHOULD be listened to! Now "Creature With the Atom Brain" was the title of a 1958 film, which also happened to be the very 1st Mass-Atomic-Zombie-Attack movie of all time. check it out! Moving along to the Rolling Stones who give us the rare B-side Child Of the Moon. Set 4. The Ramones go Howlin' At the Moon, which was from their 1984 L.P. "Too Tough to Die". Now we go WAY back to 1958 with Flying Saucer Rock N' Roll by Billy Lee Riley, that Rock-A-Billy Madman! Closing the set would be the late great Bobby "Boris" Pickett, with the Monster Mash from way back in 1962. Now what would Halloween be without that one? Set 5. Spinal Tap give us Hell Hole. The Pretenders deliver Night In My Veins. the very cool Mystic Eyes is done by Them, which featured Mr. Van Morrison on lead vocals. And the excellent show closes with Donovan and Season Of The Witch, from 1966's "Sunshine Superman", and also closes your collection Of Halloween A GO-GO! "Yea, it's strange, so strange" Very glad to have 2 Halloween shows again this year, Little Steven, for as you know, Halloween is very special for ALL Underground Garage members. Thanks again, Little Steven, for keeping the music alive, "It's ALIVE"!! Well, I guess that's it for another week. Next week, I hope to see you again celebrating that 1967 Frank Sinatra film "Tony Rome". I am continuing to dig your very worthy sponsor, The United Association, UAVIP. They continue to provide both training and jobs to our Veterans. Filling a much needed Void! WAY TO GO! Remember, all UG members, don't take nothing for granted! To all who live IN and FOR, The Underground Garage, Peace Be With You! EEYAHH! SMRZ!!
