Halloween Special Playlist & Player

tars-halloween-special-logo For the first time in our 13 year history, we’re finally taking on Halloween!
Instead of the usual music from this time of year, what if we looked at it from a thematic perspective? This is the time of year where we get a little more in the mood for scary things like ghosts, hauntings, and zombies. Throw in a little death and you have the makings for a different interpretation of what Halloween music would be.

That’s what we have here. It’s the first of its kind, from a radio perspective. Enjoy music from actual ghosts and songs about them.
