Following a critical knife strike to September, I’m now officially excited to join many millions of others in welcoming October and Halloween. To modestly assist in spreading the fear, I’ll be sharing media that pays tribute to timeless horror characters, and a few obscure monsters. For the first chapter, I present some lesser known compositions I like to spin celebrating the legacy of The Springwood Slasher. After listening to these jams, I’m afraid there’s no guarantee that I won’t be forced to navigate the unpredictable realm of Freddy during tonight’s slumber. To suppress Krueger’s terror, I may need to seek the surviving Alice (The Dream Master and The Dream Child) to help recruit a new, more powerful team of Dream Warriors.
Speaking of Dream Warriors, did you see footage of Dokken’s classic line-up reunion show from South Dakota? That may be enough to give Fred another “Who were those guys?” moment!
