Was delighted by the Scream Stream last year. Would really really really like to get the playlist. Is this possible? Thanks chillcom2003@yahoo.com

"Now why would I want to listen to a Halloween Stream" said the Curmudgeon, (taking time out to remind how overblown Halloween has become). Much to his surprise the Curmudgeon exclaimed "why this is really good what a great collection of thematic music!" So copying the URL he was able to listen via I-Tunes, at least for today. Thank you Folk Alley!

This Halloween stream is a lot of fun. I never thought of the idea of "Halloween music" before, but I like it. Also, I haven't listened to the whole stream yet, so maybe it is already here, but The Ghost of Nathaniel Carter by The Kickin Grass Band would fit well here.

An annual tradition! Thank you!

When will the Halloween stream go live for 2012?

Fantastic stream. Not that I'd expect anything less from this site, but it's awfully nice nonetheless.

Love this! You can really get a feel for how Halloween perhaps evolved through the European story telling songs into the folk tale stories of the colonies to the ballads of today. We have looked forward to this for the past few years. The kids love it too!

Is there a list of songs and artitist from the Halloween Scream Stream available?

Posted by Nancy Lessem on October 26, 2010.
This has become a big part of my Halloween. Thanks for streaming it again this year!

I'm so glad this is back--it has been the soundtrack of my Halloween for several years now! It wouldn't be the same without it!

Posted by Patricia Cooper on October 23, 2010.
How much fun it must have been pulling this together! Love it & thank you!

Fun creepy, spooky eerie listening...Right On! Folk Alley.

I may have missed it but a song by Christopher Shaw called "Wheeler Barton's Hound" on his "Born and Raised" album would certainly qualify for this holiday! Also "The legend of Indian Pass" from this album and "The Ballad of Hulet Brand" from his "Adirondack" album. Thanks for all the great Holiday music!
