Music to Smash Pumpkins By

Posted By on Wed, Oct 31, 2007 at 4:36 PM

If you need a soundtrack for tonight's gruesome revelry, check out the sixth annual Halloween episode of Little Steven's Underground Garage, my favorite syndicated radio show, broadcast locally 10 p.m. Sundays on 105.9 The Rock. The garage-nugget show, hosted with cool-daddy zeal by Little Steven Van Zandt, is typically top-notch, but this episode is a pip: a haunted hayride through four decades of horror rock, from Screaming Lord Sutch's "Jack the Ripper" to Roky Erickson's "I Walked With a Zombie" to the furious hard-bopping version of "Sweet Transvestite" from the original Rocky Horror cast album (not the movie soundtrack).

You may have to register, but it's free and worth it for access to the show's voluminous archive. Can't wait for the annual birthday tribute to Martin Scorsese coming up in a few weeks, featuring songs from his movies' soundtracks. Time it just right, and you can cruise Nashville cranking up "Be My Baby" or the Stones' "Tell Me," just like Charlie and Johnny Boy.
