It's Halloween, and we start the morning talking about all the Halloween show prep we have, and Wease asks what songs there are to play besides "Monster Mash". turns out there are TONS, and the listeners spend a fun set reminding us of all our choices... everything from Hells Bells by AC/DC to Creature From The Black Lagoon by Dave Edmunds to I Scare Myself by Dan Hicks. Plus many, many more.
Tools With Sports
The Boston Red Sox won the World Series last night with a 6-1 drubbing of the St. Louis Cardinals.
Right now we have no idea who the Buffalo Bills are starting at QB this weekend... Thad Lewis has injured ribs and is 50/50 to play against the Chiefs. Jeff Tuel and Matt Flynn have been splitting reps in practice. Wease doesn't understand why so many people he knows think the Bills are gonna win. Tools suggests Wease bet on KC -3 and the under (the number is 40 1/2).
Also a discussion of the scariest movies ever... Tools loves classis like The Omen, The Exorcist, the original Halloween, and Rosemary's Baby. Wease goes even further back to the original "Night Of The Living Dead".
We FINALLY found someone giving out something WORSE to trick-or-treaters than toothbrushes.
A woman in Fargo, North Dakota who's only been identified as "Cheryl" says that she won't be passing out candy on Halloween . . . at least not to every kid. Some kids will get candy . . . but CHUBBY KIDS will get a letter SHAMING their parents.
The letter says, quote, "You are probably wondering why your child has this note . . . Your child is, in my opinion, moderately obese and should not be consuming sugar and treats to the extent of some children this Halloween season.
"My hope is that you will step up as a parent and ration candy this Halloween and not allow your child to continue these unhealthy eating habits."
