I will say, in the interest of transparency (speaking of skeletons) that War Of The Worlds will start at around 10:15 -10:20 and continue until the end of the show.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:14pm efd:

you are correct, Dale!
Jake, I played "Runnin' With The Devil" on my Singles Going '70s show a couple of weeks ago, so that's out.
  9:17pm Screamin' JakeGhould:

@dale: Most likely someone did purchase it and drop it off. I am charmed and a bit concerned. Who does it play with or mate with?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:19pm fleep:

As far as mating goes, it's probably out of duck.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:20pm dale:

google say it's related to a wood duck but they don't mate. so guess he'll end up a bachelor.

For Halloween I'm this sonnet by John Keats!

On the Grasshopper and Cricket

The Poetry of earth is never dead:
When all the birds are faint with the hot sun,
And hide in cooling trees, a voice will run
From hedge to hedge about the new-mown mead;
That is the Grasshopper’s—he takes the lead
In summer luxury,—he has never done
With his delights; for when tired out with fun
He rests at ease beneath some pleasant weed.
The poetry of earth is ceasing never:
On a lone winter evening, when the frost
Has wrought a silence, from the stove there shrills
The Cricket’s song, in warmth increasing ever,
And seems to one in drowsiness half lost,
The Grasshopper’s among some grassy hills.

I'm using this music in my doc about R/C buggy racing in the late 80s and early 90s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49pm efd:

I was excited at first that one of the LPs in this set had side 1 and side 4, and the other had side 2 and side 3, thinking I wouldn't have to worry about flipping a record over and cueing it up but I just realized I'm going to need to do that with this record.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:50pm efd:

ooh, I love it Alex!

Classic song for the season.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:53pm efd:

@Uncle Michael yeah, I forgot that I'm not really a record changer! :D
  Swag For Life Member 10:53pm Julie M:

Yeah, I remember this song too as a Moody Blues song, but I never knew about the WOTW thing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:55pm efd:

As Uncle Michael pointed out to me earlier, this song started out as a Lego TV commercial (!!) in the late '60s.
  10:55pm DJ E:

This is pretty sweet. Thanks efd!

I remember my grandmother telling me about being around for the Orson Welles broadcast. in the 30's.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:55pm Alex of Chicago:

That early. Interesting.
  10:55pm Bill W:

I wonder if Burton wrote about this project in his voluminous diaries?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:56pm efd:

Julie I don't think it was even a Moody Blues release! Just Justin Hayward solo (I mean, solo with this ridiculous band/orchestration)
