We are getting ramped up with events now, such as Divali, Halloween and Bonfire night, so hallowed be this weekend as we expect spooky going’s on; well just look at my hair cut – So as we expect the nuisance of trick or treat’ers to delight our door steps. We had a delightfully spooky story about a place called Gentleshaw, a horror tale told by Spencer Cork; listen again at this spooky tale – Gentleshaw Mix
Twofer was a two track salute to poor old Steve Tyler from Aerosmith, who had fallen over again, this time not on stage – so we Played ‘Dude looks like a lady’ and ‘Love in an Elevator’.
