Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, and our hosts at BlogTalkRadio are dressed in costume and ready to hit the airwaves.

Our Halloween programming runs the gamut from shows the kids will enjoy, to some seriously frightening broadcasts.

For some tips on how to manage mountains of sugary candy that comes pouring in after trick-or-treating, join Connie from Stop Sugar Shock Radio. At 3pm ET she welcomes a bevy of guests: the FlyLady and Leanne Ely, Dr. Lisa Hark, and CNC and Dr. Jill R. Baron. These experts will give us the lowdown on halting Halloween havoc!

For the really scary stuff, tune into TAPS Paranormal Radio at 6pm ET, as they cover the Ghost Hunters LIVE from Waverly Hills Sanatorium. Now, I’ve seen pictures of that place, and I would not want to go in there. Make sure you listen to this show with a friend and the lights on!!

For a historical perspective on Halloween, join Teo Ruiz, the Carnegie Foundation’s Outstanding Teacher of the Year, professor at UCLA, and frequent contributor to The History Channel. Teo joins Fausta’s BlogTalkRadio Show at 9pm ET to talk about spooky Halloween traditions sleepaway-camp-movie-poster.jpgthrough the years!
