Title: S3E1 – Rankin Bass
Snow in Southtown

It’s now October, and that means our Christmas podcast will return in about a month! But first, here’s a Halloween treat.

Growing up, I’d spend a lot of time each Halloween season at Kmart, and I always bought whatever Halloween cassettes they had for sale. Most were terrible, aside from a few classics that still remain on my shelf. But this episode features one of my favorites, The Old Gray Goose.

This tape was released in 1999. It features a guy (the Gray Goose) who tells stories and sings songs. Most of the stories were familiar tales that we’d been telling each other for years, but I hadn’t heard a few of these. Overall, it’s just a really cool collection and is something I still listen to every year.

A few years ago, I hooked up a cassette player to my computer to create these files; however, it seems this was also released on CD, so I really should just track that down. This cassette rip is pretty rough. Still, the times I’ve checked, it hasn’t been the easiest thing to find online, so I figured it’d make a cool podcast post, even with the tape noise.

I didn’t record an intro or anything. I figured people may want to play this with family or at a party, and you don’t need my voice on here messing it up. So it’s simply the two sides of the tape. Here’s the track list:

1 Goose Introduction
2 Shipwreck
3 Medical College
4 Oscar, The Lightheaded Pumpkin
5 The Graveyard
6 The Hike
7 The Passing Of David Holt
8 Ride Of Terror
9 The Butcher
10 Emily’s Nightmare
11 39 Steps & The Blue Room
12 Mystery Church
13 Graveyard Song
14 Goose Farewell

St. Patrick’s Day 2021
/

We’re celebrating St. Patrick’s Day and the return of spring with a special podcast episode. We discuss Leprechaun’s Christmas Gold (1981) and briefly compare and contrast it to the Leprechaun horror series. Also: telling your friends to “go,” backing into parking spots, and allowing your kids to get hit in the head with flying vegetables.

The background music includes songs from Altan’s The Red Crow, Bing Crosby, Dennis Day, and the Rankin Bass film. We’ll be back for Leon Day!
