In Mexico, November 1st and 2nd are known as The Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos) so host Eric Dwinnells has asked his amigo Mexicano, Cristhian Mancinas-Garcia, to stop by and tell us all about the centuries old tradition.

Listen as Cristhian explains the origins of the holiday and the role Catholicism played in it. He'll also recall his own childhood memories of celebrating this holiday dedicated to remembrance with his family and explain the use of sugar skulls and other ofrendas.  He'll also tell us what US pop culture has gotten right and what it's gotten wrong in its portrayal of the Day of the Dead.

All this plus some Rock of Ages memories, advice on how to pick up women using historical facts, and a recommendation for the best Mexican food in the Boston area!

Eric Dwinnells finally welcomes back guest co-host Brian Toney to talk about when Halloween Decorations become too real! We'll start with a discussion about how people decorated their yards for Halloween in the 80's and how modern Halloween displays often come under fire for being too graphic. Where does Eric stand on the issue? The answer may surprise you.

We'll move on to talk about incidents where real-life corpses were mistaken for Halloween decorations, Halloween pranks that turned into accidental suicides, and the intriguing case of Elmer McCurdy, the old west outlaw who ended up as a neon-painted corpse in a funhouse.

Tonight host Eric Dwinnells takes you to Wisconsin to meet The Beast of Bray Road, a supposed werewolf living off roadkill in the town of Elkhorn.

We'll discuss Linda Godfrey who named the unknown creature and wrote a book about it based on many eyewitness accounts. We'll also learn what local law enforcement has to say about the beast and how it's sudden fame in the early 1990's affected the community.

We'll also try to discover just what people could really be seeing on Bray Road and how both Will Smith and Mick Fleetwood are tied to the story. Plus Eric will tell of his own recent encounter with a mystery creature on a dark country road.

 

Werewolf, dogman, wolf man, bigfoot, wendigo...whatever it is, you'll learn all about it. All this and more on tonight's Spooky A S!

Tonight's episode is not for the especially sensitive. It deals with some very intense subject matter and NOT in the normal way. Listener discretion is advised.

This week Eric takes on one of the most taboo subject of all time: Necrophilia. Necrophilia is the sexual attraction to human corpses and, happily, cases of nercophiliacs acting on their impulses are fairly rare...but the attraction its self may be far more common than society is willing to admit.

Tonight we'll go over the case of Francois Bertrand, the 19th century necrophiliac who was captured after exhuming multiple corpses and having his way with them. But why did he do it? And how? But mostly WHY?!?!

We'll also discuss some suspected causes and possible therapeutic treatments which may help those with these compulsions.

It's a nasty, morbid and taboo subject, but hey, they can't all be about Punky Brewster!!!
