Halloween Community Radio (2) - October 31, 2010

By gosh, by golly, I thought Halloween would be over by now, but no! It's today. So more monsters and brain eaters today.

I don't have the bounce I used to in the morning. So when I got home from the Unknown Hinson show last night at 1:30 a.m., I hit the sack immediately, in order to get as much sleep as possible before this morning's show. Still, I'm draggin' a little bit. Lord knows I need my beauty sleep.

So, besides novelty numbers like "The Monster Mash" and "The Mummy," I played some hard-swinging jazz from Miles Davis, Oscar Peterson, Stan Getz and George Benson.

I played Ella singing Rogers and Hart's "Bewitched":

I'll sing to him
Each spring to him
And worship the trousers that cling to him
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered am I

When he talks he is seeking
Words to get off his chest.
Horizontally speaking
He's at his very best.

Vexed again
Perplexed again
Thank God I can't be over-sexed again
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered am I.

I did a little hip-hop set with Dr. Octogon, MF Doom, and Ghostface Killer. Dr. Octagon:

Yes, you have met the dangerous 208 year-old uncle of Dr. Octagon.
I myself Mr. Gerbik. Half-shark, half-man, skin like alligator.
Carrying a dead walrus. check it.

With my white eyes, gray hair, face is sky-blue yellow
Sideburns react, my skin is colored lilac.
My skin turn orange and green in the limousine
People think I'm mixed with shark, drinking gasoline.
Underwater I breathe and let loose on my sleeve,
Walking down Hollywood Boulevard with a credit card,
Three alligators behind me, feel my skin is hard.
Transvestites, and people watch space parasites.
I left his head in the store, legs in the street.
Body in Wilcox, with blood dripping off my feet.
LAPD through gray clouds couldn't see me.
I first turned rainbow, closed my eyes, watch my brain glow.
People got scared and ranned away; They think Im weird.
I was born this way, halfsharkalligator
Is he weird???
