I did an OKOM Halloween theme show many years on KFJC -   here are  
many of the songs I played. I include the Minnie The Moocher Series as  
the theme seems to fit with the holiday. Some repeated titles are  
actually different songs, others are done in very different styles.  
Some are not really Halloween-ish, but they seem to work.
(Some spelling and date errors  are probably included.)
