It's officially Fall and host Eric Dwinnells has gone pumpkin crazy! Tonight we'll discuss the origins of carving pumpkins and putting candles in them. We'll learn al about the legend of the wicked Jack O'Lantern and his deals with the devil. We'll also learn a little about the Celtic holiday of Samhain and what role carved turnips played in those celebrations. You'll also learn how the tradition of making Jack-o-lanterns came to the Americas and why the Christian Right has a huge problem with them. Other topics include pumpkin beer, pumpkin pie, roasted pumpkin seeds, pumpkin scented candles and Eric's deep thoughts on real -vs- fake pumpkins!

There is a bit of audio on this episode from a video I discovered via this website. You should go check it out. Tons of groovy stuff.

Host Eric Dwinnells is dipping into the Spooky Archives to bring you bits form previous episodes that didn't make it into the finale cut of the original show. These bits weren't cut because they were't good; far from it! They were only cut because the show was running long. So it's a joy to finally be able to present this "lost hits" to you! First Eric gives you one more creepy song...written by Charles Manson (of Manson Family fame)! Then he and Tom Cole discuss two more missing persons cases. We wrap it up by talking with Arron Cohen about the Que line at Disney's Haunted Mansion, what happens if you try to spread human ashes at the mansion, Paris' Phantom Manor and Hong Kong's Mystic Manor!

Host Eric Dwinnells is flying solo once again as he brings you songs with creepy backstories. Did you hear about the song "the best" band in the world wrote as a tribute to a fan who was killed in a car accident on the way to their show? What about the one based on a televised suicide? Or the song so depressing it caused people to commit suicide? Or the song that was released unfinished after the singer's death?

Artists covered tonight include KISS, Filter, Blue Oyster Cult, Janis Joplin, Fastball, AC/DC, and more!

On a serious note, there is a lot of talk about suicide in this episode. If you or someone you know is struggling with suicidal thoughts, free help is available 24/7 in the USA by calling The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.
