Podcast: NLFM Episode 21: Curse of the Halloween Hootenanny

Posted by Jon Wahlgren

Fear the reaper!

Since it's not only the single best month of the year and because we had so much fun last time [citation needed], the NLFM Halloween Hootenanny has returned!

More spooky, more sinister and more deathly, this episode is best listened to in a dark castle dungeon while eating raw pumpkins. Failing that, anywhere else will do.

1. Hip Tanaka, Keiichi Suzuki — Giygas Battle (Earthbound, SNES)
2. Shinji Hosoe — Trepidation (999: 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors, DS)
3. Koji Kondo — Big Boo's Haunt (Super Mario 64, N64)
4. Tim Haywood — Deadside (Shadow Man, N64/PSX/DC/PC)
5. Bobby Prince — At Doom's Gate (E1M1) (Doom, everything)
6. Robin Beanland — Bats (Conker's Bad Fur Day, N64/Xbox)
7. Masafumi Takada, Etsuko Ichikawa — The Moaning of Hell (Fatal Frame IV, Wii)
8. Akira Yamaoka — Devil's Laughter (Silent Hill: Shattered Memories, Wii/PSP/PS2)
9. Kouji Niikura — Don't Cry, Jennifer (Clock Tower, SNES)

In case you've missed out on the fun so far, NLFM generally focuses on music from games playable on Nintendo consoles and handhelds, which, thanks to the Virtual Console, also includes the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive and Master System, Turbografx-16, Neo Geo and Commodore 64. It's not all games either as we highlight musicians and albums we really like, as well as your own original gaming compositions.

To prevent the invisible imp that comes with missing episodes, subscribe to our Podcast feed or download it using this direct link. You can also find us on iTunes (don't forget to rate us!) and also drop original compositions of yours you'd like us to play on the show in our Soundcloud dropbox.

NLFM will return on November 7. Got a request? Sound off in the comments or on Twitter.
