Flopcast 389: Space Ghost, Ghost to Ghost
It's another Flopcast Halloween show, and we're counting down our favorite ghosts in a terrifying Top 4 ½ List! We have ghosts from cartoons (where Shaggy screamed "ghost" with like eleven syllables), comic books (learn which ghost Kornflake wants to cosplay), sitcoms (we just saw the most beautiful ghost in the world), music, video games, and of course... breakfast cereal. (Not every cereal mascot sounds like Peter Lorre... but they should.) Also: Our 10-part 80s music series concludes with the Top Ten songs this week in 1989, including Kornflake's beloved New Kids, a dance music act Kornflake can't believe Kevin saw live, a seed of love, and some naughty elevator music. Plus: Happy Birthday to Weird Al! And what is Al's mysterious connection to a shady outfit known as the Classy Chickens? Listen and find out... if you dare.
Weird Al is turning 60!
