Halloween is approaching quickly, and frankly, we can't wait. We're already getting in the spooky spirit, kicking things off this morning with Bloodrock's "D.O.A." for our Vinyl Tap pick.

And as we "creep" ever closer to October 31, we're ramping things up with eerie themes for the 9:30 Coffee Break. Today, we'll get things started with ghosts and spirits. Whether referencing a wispy presence or full-torso apparition, the world of popular music has been unafraid to venture into the spectral space.

So for today's 9:30 Coffee Break, what songs do you want to hear that mention a ghost, ghosts or spirits? Send us your requests.
