We Are In Danger of Losing Hauntcast!
Well, I don't know about the rest of you, but the 'create for Halloween' bug is really starting to kick in for me! I was out walking the woods, trying to figure out where I might set stuff up for my haunt, what trails to extend and suchlike. So, when I came back in, I sat right down at the computer, turned on the Hauntcast show (for the second time!) and started looking at all my favorite Halloween sites. This show is a Halloween aficionado's dream come true. For those of you who don't know about it, GO CHECK IT OUT NOW Those of you who do know about it are probably aware that to help defray costs, the show now costs a dollar to listen to. (geez, a whole dollar?) Unbelievably, there are some people who apparently object to this astronomical expense gouging a whole in their pockets (geez, a whole dollar?) and instead are downloading all of the free past shows, not subscribing to the new ones, eating up the Hauntcast band width which costs the show even more money. So, I know the spirit of giving has departed along with December but let's get a little bit real here, folks. The people who put this terrific show together give a great deal of their time, energy and their own hard-earned bucks to spread a little Halloween cheer around. I say we need to give a little bit back...go ahead and splurge--sign up for a subscription! It's only a dollar a show (geez, a whole dollar?) If you can dig deeper, go ahead and get yourself a very cool T-shirt to show even more support for a fabulous Halloween tradition that we are in danger of losing.
