This year’s compilation features musical memories from my youth growing up in Bartlesville, OK. We watched Tulsa TV stations, and from 1970 to 1973, Mazeppa Pompazoidi http://www.mazeppa.com/Mazeppa1.html ruled the airwaves Saturday nights after the late movie, which began around 10:30PM. In other words, it stared around 1AM and ended around 3:30AM.
Track 01 is the “Mazeppa Theme,” assembled by station staff from old clip music. Yes, it plays through forwards, then backwards, then forwards again. Those crazy engineers! The music ACTUALLY APPEARED this way on TV for a while.
Track 17 is the A-side of a 1970 45rpm released in the Tulsa area to cash in on the Mazeppa craze.
The last track was used as the end titles for Mazeppa’s show, and this feeling not only applies to those teenage Saturday nights at 3:30 in the morning, but also to the wondrous Halloween of our imaginations! Why Can’t This Night Go On Forever?
Over the next month we’ll share my earlier Halloween compilations and other creepy, scary, FUN stuff! See you every Monday and Thursday, kiddies!
