everday is halloween

trinkets, baubles, geegaws of all sorts abound during the scary season.  so does cheap merchandising of foodstuffs.  consider the record winchell's donut house gave out in 1976 called hear the monsters.  winchell's were once ubiquitous.  i don't know if any of their stores are still open in sac.  the record is a long commercial for the donut shop and is really quite charming in a corny way.  i very much enjoyed hearing the once familiar but now obsolete sound of pops and scratches of the needle in the groove.  take a listen.  enjoy a respite from a time long past.
