(ahem) It’s the end of October… you know what that means! Spooks and ghosts, zombies and vampires, yessir, it’s HALLOWEEN!
Technically… it’s only October 29… but since I believe in celebrating BEFORE an event instead of after we’re doing it tonight. Chris and Cory have a great hour lined up with some of our favorite Halloween inspired music – spooky songs and maniacal musicians.
While October has some great events, no holiday has as much influence over the month as Halloween… which is a little odd considering it’s right at the end of the month. But right on October 1, pumpkins and ghosts, skeletons and gravestones can be found everywhere.
At Operation Manatee, we like dressing up too, but we tend to be a little more nerdy and it happens a little more often… hey, we’re adults! We can dress how we want and as often as we want as well!
Join us tonight at 11:00 pm as we dress up on the radio!! Um… wait… we didn’t really plan that out very well. Well, join us anyways as we play some great music for your own dressing up! Whether you be superhero, super-villain or super-good-in-bed, we have something that will whet your appetite!
October is a special month, not just because we all get an excuse to load up on sugar over the course of it. October is widely associated as Breast Cancer Awareness month, where everywhere you look, you’ll see pink ribbons and various organizations raising awareness for Breast Cancer and funds for cancer testing.
While Breast Cancer can strike anyone, man or woman, as a man I’m much more concerned about the state of the women in my life. As such, we’re dedicating this episode of Operation Manatee entirely to women in music – all-women groups, women fronted groups, etc.
Woah… wait a second… is Cory starting a blog post? Crazy… summer MUST be over now…
Tune in tonight at 11:00 pm on 91.3 FM in Regina or by streaming online at http://www.cjtr.ca to hear some stories. Chris and Cory aren’t young pups anymore… in fact, we’ve each been accused on more than one occasion (daily) of being old and stubborn. But how did we get this way?
Tonight, we delve into our pasts and histories to hear how music has formed our current tastes in a Radiothon special! Little more talky tonight, but we’ll have some great older songs to go along with our stories from aught-eighty-seven.
