    I would recommend these audio/visual selections for Halloween:

    -“It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown” 1966
    -Glenn Beck’s reading of Poe’s “Tell Tale Heart” 2012
    -Original “War of the World’s” radio broadcast 1938
    -Jeff Wayne’s musical adaptation of “War of the Worlds” 1978 version
