The end of Summer is upon us, and we've got live music in the studio. Aranya performed in the studio and brought a real psychodelic zest to the season. Pinball Keith stopped in for a short visit.  And even though she was laid up with a cold Miss Mona called in to recommend some classic horror movies for the whole family to watch. Which  included Black Sunday, with Barbra Steele, The Scarlet Claw, and a new set of Vincet Price movies that are now availible. Fortunato even found time to play a great Lou Reed performance, and a few Halloween themed songs.

Live music during the pledge drive. Waver Clamor Bellow set up in our small studio to perform a couple of amazing sets of transcendental music. Robin Jackson came in to tell us about a couple of seasonal music events that he and his group 'The Vagabond Opera' will be participating in. And, Miss Mona also stopped by to give us a review of the recent remake of the horror classic 'Carrie', that is now playing. She also told us about some interesting film events that are coming up. All this and we still managed to raise a few bucks for KBOO. We'd like to thank all those who called in both this week and last to help keep KBOO on the air!
