Alucard's Bat-tastic Guide To Hallowe'en On Roku..... - Day #27 - TERRIFYING TUESDAY TUNES (Vol. 4)

Welcome back, Boils & Ghouls...

... to 'Day Twenty-Seven' of "Alucard's Bat-tastic Guide To Hallowe'en On Roku" which brings with it the fourth and final instalment of "Terrifying Tuesday Tunes" for 2015 where, once a week, I've been recommending a different source of spine-tingling Hallowe'en music & sounds that can be streamed to your television via the magic of Roku player with a little bit of help from the internet !!

Still... whether you're planning to create your very own yard haunt to prepare a suitably ghoulish greeting for the "Trick 'r Treat" brigade on Hallowe'en, or you just need some macabre music to help your ghastly guests get into the "spirit" of things come the time of your spooky soirée, here's one more suggestion for a Roku channel that's full to the brim with spooky spirits and scary melodies bringing all the horror-themed audio you'll need to "get your fright on" in readiness for Hallowe'en !!

HALLOWEEN RADIO........................................................COST: FREE [Roku Guide Review]

*** EASILY FOUND UNDER: "MUSIC" in the channel store OR, VIA ROKU "SEARCH" ***

This particular channel was only added to the Roku Channel Store a couple of weeks ago and some of you may even recognise the channel icon (above) from my 'Weekly RoundUp' post in which it recently featured. In any case, if you're not already familiar with it, the "Halloween Radio" channel offers an continuous LIVE STREAM of Hallowe'en and Horror-themed audio which is ALL FREE for users of Roku devices AS WELL AS AD-FREE making it great for all-day, every day, spook-tastic listening!

It features an eclectic mixture of Hallowe'en-themed audio, including: horror, sci-fi, scary parodies, old time radio, movie trailers & more. Better yet... the developers, who also gave us Cult Radio A-Go-Go! for Roku, have said that it will stream 24/7 every October in honour of the Hallowe'en season! Who knows, I may even be able to persuade them to incorporate a dedicated radio player to share their live stream via this blog for future "Countdown To Hallowe'en" blogathons?!! :-)

For those who'd like to know more about Cult Radio A-Go-Go! and the various Roku channels they have developed over the years, I recommend a visit to their official website, FOUND HERE, where you'll find plenty of information on the various ways to enjoy their content. Should you wish to get social with the folks behind all the Cult Radio A-Go-Go! creations for Roku devices, there's always their Twitter Feed: @Cult_Radio for sharing your thoughts and opinions in 140 characters or less. Though, no matter how brief, I'm sure they'd welcome any feedback you may have for them! ;-)

Anyway, that's pretty much all there is to it, except to point out that the 'Halloween Radio' music channel has been given an average score of "3.5 out of 5" from 94 ratings (so far) in the channel store description from the Official Roku Website. That's pretty good, considering it was only released about two weeks ago, but the fact it caters directly to fans of Hallowe'en and horror alone should be reason enough to give this a try, plus ALL MUSIC IS FREE TO LISTEN TO and many of the classic old time radio (OTR) theatre recordings are a real Hallowe'en treat - even if some of the ambient sounds, randomly interspersed throughout the day, can prove to be less than comfortable listening at times - but, then again, maybe that's just the sort of thing you were looking for? In which case, you now know just where to find it! With everything from Screamin' Jay Hawkins to horror movie soundtracks, and classic OTR episodes from Murder Mysteries to SciFi plus Horror Stories and Thrillers, "Halloween Radio" has it all and, consequently, it's as well-suited to spooky soirées as it is to haunted, horrific listening at bedtime (or any time) and, for me at least, has been the perfect companion during my month-long blogathon... even if I did get rather distracted at times - nothing new there, then !! :-P

Still, while that's all I've got to say in this final instalment of "Terrifying Tuesday Tunes" for 2015... do remember to come back in 24-hours for 'Day Twenty-Eight' and more Hallowe'en-themed content, in "Alucard's Bat-tastic Guide To Hallowe'en On Roku", when I reveal the very last horror-themed movie selection for "Wicked Watch Wednesday", as the "Countdown To Hallowe'en" 2015 nears the end. Meanwhile, be sure to visit the other contributors to the 2015 Countdown To Hallowe'en and see what devilishly delightful Hallowe'en treats they have in store for you ahead of October 31st !!

Fangs again, for stopping by !!
