Greetings all 

Things being what they are these days, I was not inclined to cook up new Halloween shows. However, I could not let the holiday go by unnoticed, so I distilled the best Halloween jams in my crates into one party mix, guaranteed to raise the dead at your apple-bobbing soiree this year!

So dig into, pull down the ones and zeros, and, of course, BOO!

Also, make sure to follow Funky16Corners on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.

Keep the faith

Greetings all.

Time to close out the week.

First, I’d like to suggest that since this Friday is Halloween, you all huddle around the wireless set with your cider and popcorn balls and dig this years Funky16Corners Radio Show Halloween Special, which hits the airwaves of the interwebs at 9PM on Viva Radio. There’ll be lots of groovy, spooky things to hear. If you can’t be there at airtime, you can always subscribe to the show as a podcast in iTunes, check it out on your mobile device in the TuneIn app, or grab yourself an MP3 here in the archive.

I’m digging into the archive for today’s tracks, both of which have appeared in this space before (2006/2009).

What you’re getting is two very groovy, completely different songs that share the same title: ‘My Love’s a Monster’. Both of them hail from Chicago, with the Johnny Sayles number (arranged by Monk Higgins) coming from 1965, and the Clea Bradford (produced, arranged and co-written by no less a light than Richard Evans) in 1968.

They are both outstanding in their own way, with Johnny Sayles getting a touch more Halloween-y with his intro, but Miss Bradford getting a little funkier in her outing, which reminds me a lot of Marlena Shaw’s work with Mr Evans.

Both are yet more evidence that when it came to making soul 45s, the great city of Chicago was near the top of the list.

I hope you dig the sounds and get a chance to check out the Halloween show.

See you on Monday.

Keep the faith
