Well, I just finished sewing my leather bat wings to my catsuit, so you know what that means! It’s almost TIME! On this day, anything goes, kids. Let the retrotransmission Halloween show be the soundtrack to your mischief and mayhem…but don’t do anything I wouldn’t do 😉
After reading this great article, “Propaganda: The Aesthetics of Evil and Why Goth Was a Thing That Had to Happen,” I was inspired to post my vintage retrotransmission homage to the infamous UK Goth Club, The Batcave, from fall 2012. Put on your black best and get your goth stomp on to the sounds of Specimen, Alien Sex Fiend, Bauhaus, Virgin Prunes, The Birthday Party, Tabathas Nightmare, Xmal Deutschland, etc….

Tonight was my final retrotransmission on rainydawg radio, and it was emotional for me. I hate goodbyes, so I wanted to end on a high note with a nonstop dance party, the kind where music blasts from a righteous sound system at top volume and people can’t get off the dance floor. Postpunk, pop, goth (I had to represent the goth stomp!), industrial dance, and electro kept it strong all night, and I sent retrotransmission off in style. I hope to be broadcasting live from the radio again soon…stay tuned. But until then, keep checking this blog every Monday for new and vintage retrotransmission playlists!
