Halloween Music (1910 to 1950)

Finishing out the Halloween 2013 postings this year with a quick reminder that if you are searching for some spooky tunes of our early century past (1910s to 1950s) click over to this seasonal vintage music station sponsored and programmed by Bindlegrim on Bindlegrim Halloween. For the next seven days through the Halloween weekend the station has been upgraded to offer up to 60 non-VIP listeners at a time (up from the usual 5)...!

These Bone Daddies from the 1920s-50s make good poster chillins for the type of vintage old Halloween music found on Bindlegrim radio

This is about 4 1/2 hours (as of this writing) of music from the 1910s to the 1950s featuring the music you might have found on 78 RPM, such as jazz, swing, big band, ragtime, lounge & more... (this is before rock and roll which has plenty of sources for that genre). The music here (not always p.c.) is about ghosts, witches, devils, skeletons, spooky haunts, or even just the simple pleasures like the autumn leaves, by musical artist such as Louis Armstrong, Kay Starr, Glen Miller, Betty Hutton, Cab Calloway...

Hope you enjoy! And suggestions / requests for songs are always welcome (though I may not get to them in the current year).  There is no monetary compensation in this for me. This is just a hobby as something I like to do (as a fan of music from all eras) that brought together my love of vintage decor with the music of that holiday past. Happy Hallowe'en...!!!
