Straight No Chaser - A Jazz Show

Welcome to Straight No Chaser, the Award-winning Podcast hosted by Jeffrey Siegel

Oct 28, 2014

In past years I’ve done a Halloween podcast featuring songs with scary titles – check out these beauties from 2012, 2011 and 2009 – and last year I changing course a bit, and all the songs mentioned the Prince of Darkness, Ol’ Scratch, Lucifer – yes, the Devil -  in the title of the song or album. For 2014, it's the return of the Spooky Song. Maybe it's the title or the track, maybe it's the sound or mood - but in any event, here is Podcast 452, the 2014 Spooky Song collection:
