Today’s show is all about Halloween memories! That’s right it is time for the 5th Annual Retroist Halloween Special. It was a fun show to put together and many of the folks associated with the site joined in to share their Halloween memories. You will hear Charleton Hero, Retro Justin, Doug, David Greelish, Weird Paul, Eric LeFeber and of course, Vic Sage. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed making it.

    Yay! I can end Halloween night by listening to this on the way to the airport. After handing out candy first and my annual screening of The Great Pumpkin on the garage door for the trick or treaters to enjoy.

    Great job everyone, as usual!! Nice to hear some new voices, but hey, Greelish…..I have a spare Charlie McCarthy from the same era that I have no attachment to. If I don’t hear some new chapters of that Stan Veit audiobook soon, I will send it to you. When you least expect it!
