Greetings,

Smile Jamaica loves Halloween or as I say: Jah-loween! For going on 20 years now I have played all treats no tricks the last Saturday in Jah-tober;

Because my job is a sound editor, I created some sound art: 81 soundbytes or Horror movie trailers that I edited in my home studio. One after each song.

Dracula, Blackula, War of the Worlds. Nuff Vincent Price: Michael Jackson and Dr. Phibes and even Alice Cooper. Halloween and X-Files soundtrack. Nuff Blaxploitation Village of the Damned.

I get a call from a listener when I stitched in the Vincent Price interlude from Alice Cooper’s “Black Widow”. Listener goes, “I called two shows on KRCL requesting  “Black Widow,” They didn’t play my request and then I heart it on Smile Jamaica.”

Boo-tiful
