Hello and welcome back to the 31-Days of Halloween! If you're just jumping-on-board, welcome! Each day I'm adding a new spooky, creepy or fun Halloween song to an ongoing playlist on YouTube & Spotify. A new song per day, until we reach Halloween.
Today's song comes to us from Chapel Hill, North Carolina band Squirrel Nut Zippers. They were at the front of a Swing Music revival that hit American airwaves in 1990's. They're still around with a new album called "Beasts Of Burgundy" out this year and a tour that currently finds them on the West Coast.
But for today, let's go back to 1998 and their "Perennial Favorites" album for a tune called "The Ghost of Stephen Foster." A fun spooky black & white animated video is available on the YouTube version of the 31-Days of Halloween playlist. Happy listening! -Kristen
