Welcome to the crypt!

Ain't it Scary? Podcast - HALLOWEEN SPECIAL: "Ain't it Kitschy?" - Halloween Novelty Songs (Patreon)

What does that mishmash of an episode title mean? Well, gentle listeners, this week in honor of the approaching All Hallow's Eve we are taking a short break to prepare our intense final episode of our "Salem Witch Trials" series and dropping in a preview of some content we have going on over at Patreon!

We just launched a currently Patreon-exclusive new mini-series, "Ain't it Kitschy?", where we will be diving into everything, well, kitschy - kitschy being defined as things considered to be gaudy, vulgar, or sometimes in bad taste, but we define as things that are, well, pleasantly dorky and sometimes vintage or excessively sentimental. Think that painting of dogs playing poker, Velvet Elvises, or in this first episode's case, novelty songs. Halloween novelty songs, to be exact.

In honor of the most wonderful time of the year, HALLOWEEN!!, Carrie will be taking us through the history and oddity of two Halloween songs that range from obscure to ubiquitous: "Batman, Wolfman, Frankenstein, or Dracula" by The Diamonds, and "The Monster Mash" by Bobby 'Boris' Pickett & the Crypt Kicker Five.

Join us for a little ghoultide merriment, and a whole lot of Carrie waxing poetic about doo-wop music! Thanks for allowing us this mini-break to prep our upcoming wedding reception, we hope you enjoy the episode (and join us over at Patreon!!), and we'll see you next week for the conclusion of the Salem Witch Trials: the executions.
