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.
