#147: (Belated) Halloween Bonus – TEEN DEATH SONGS

This was meant to be a Halloween bonus episode, and was recorded as such; in it, I play music from an obscure pop music subgenre, Teen Death Songs. My recent hospitalization prevented me from uploading it in time, so here it is for you now. Regrettably, I must now take a hiatus as I concentrate on recovering and trying to shore up my increasingly ramshackle body. Thank you for understanding.

“Teen Angel” written by Jean Dinning & Red Surrey; performed by Mark Dinning
