Artist Track Album Label Comments Special
 
Set 1: the old radio show portion of the evening, part 1. (Listen to this set: Real)
Me  (Listen: Real)       A brief intro from me about The Haunting Hour episode we're about to hear.   
The Haunting Hour  Ptolemey's Grave (Listen: Real)   Options from somewhere between 1944 and 1946 (no credits were ever made)  (no label)  Nice n' cheesy and fine "B" level horror, even down to the unstable and hyperactive wife arguing with the husband - who's now the mummy.

Quote from husband: "...the mummy and I - we're the same, Martha, the same!"

Quote from wife: "THE SAME ?! WILLIAM !!!"
 
 
 
 
Mic break between Sets 1 & 2. Background music played during it: (Listen to this set: Real)
Les Chakachas  Love is like a Violin (track 4) (Listen: Real)   Options Arriba!  RCA International  Phat, sentimental sound. Feels like it's the slow song at the record hop.   
 
 
Set 2: almost an hour and a half of psych, from slow & dreamy to heavy. (Listen to this set: Real)
Zelienople  Fortune (track 10) (Listen: Real)   Options Sleeper Coach  Loose Thread  Like a slow golden dream, soft, drifty male vocals.   
F/i  Looking For My Head (track 4) (Listen: Real)   Options Space Mantra / Boy Dirt Car split CD  Lexdev  Heavy and thick, easy- tempo, heavy fuzz guitar, bit Fall-like, treated voice.   
Midnight Snake  Acid Wash (track 8: begun at -7:59, ended at -1:00) (Listen: Real)   Options Midnight Snake  Birdman  This part of the song is stately and almost beautiful. They are usually quite raucous - which can also be really good.   
Bardo Pond  Slag (track 2) (Listen: Real)   Options Cypher Documents 1  Three Lobed  Easy- tempo, heavy-ish.   
Subarachnoid Space  P.S.S.A. (track 5: begun at -6:52) (Listen: Real)   Options The Red Veil  Strange Attractors  Easy, tough but a bit meditative, psych rock.   
Marble Sheep  Cosmic Garden Eternal (CD 1, track 4) (Listen: Real)   Options Marble Sheep Meets Circle Triangle Square  Captain Trip  Warm psych rock, easy tempo, bit propulsive, also kind of fun.  ***  
F/i  This Is The Key, Said Tim (track 12) (Listen: Real)   Options Space Mantra / Boy Dirt Car split CD  Lexdev  Throbbing space rock, easy, guitar up front.   
Dean Carter  I Got A Girl (track 3) (Listen: Real)   Options Call Of The Wild !  Big Beat  Wild blend of psych, garage and 1950s, "ah, ah, ah" moaned throughout, gloriously disturbed, jaw dropping.  ***  
F/i  Just To Get Us Off (track 6) (Listen: Real)   Options Space Mantra / Boy Dirt Car split CD  Lexdev  Melodic but bit of a noisy edge, best at low-moderate volume, fine space-psych rock.   
Throbbing Gristle  His Arm Was Her Leg (track 14, begun at -3:45, ended at -0:40) (Listen: Real)   Options The Taste Of TG  Mute  Heavy electro swirliness.   
ST 37  Model Had (track 5: begun at -5:16) (Listen: Real)   Options The Insect Hospital  Black Widow  Definitely psych rock, raw & bit swirly. This CD is a collection of some of their earlier stuff.   
Overhang Party  Le Fantome de la Liberte (track 4) (Listen: Real)   Options Outtakes From 1996 - 2003  Overhang Party  Easy+ tempo, sometimes swirly psych rock, good played loud.  ***  
Midnight Snake  Nitro-Turbo Overdrive (track 1) (Listen: Real)   Options Midnight Snake  Birdman  Easy+ / medium- tempo, distort-o muddy psych rock with a slower middle, makes me think of High Rise.   
Skywave  Tsunami (track 1) (Listen: Real)   Options Synthstatic  Alison / Blissent  Easy+ / medium- tempo, dark, heavy and full sounding psych rock.   
Midnight Snake  Snakebite At Midnight (track 6) (Listen: Real)   Options Electric Venom  Midnight Snake  Medium- tempo psych rock.   
Skywave  Kill Me Dead (track 13) (Listen: Real)   Options Synthstatic  Alison / Blissent  Heavy, a sonic assault, dark but warm.  ***

The Haunting Hour  Breakdown (Listen: Real)   Options from somewhere between 1944 and 1946 (no credits were ever made)  (no label)  An evil nurse & her cohorts conspire to drive a woman insane, to get her share of an inheritance - just what they did to the woman's father. Great.

Quote: "I don't know how long I'd been hearing music - it had seemed all part of the dream. But then it began to unnerve me...it became frenzied and hating and evil - it sounded like ALL THE DEMONS OF HELL AND THE THINGS OF THE NIGHT WERE AFTER ME ! MAKE IT STOP ! MAKE IT GO AWAY ! PLEASE !!! PLEASE !!! PLEASE !!!

Vanity 5  Flight Of The Phoenicians (track 21) (Listen: Real)   Options Give 'Em The Boot II  Hellcat  From the punk compilation series, but this one's smooth and reggae-ish, with an organ.
