Pandora Radio is more than an online, customizable audio portal. It also offers a variety of curated channels for particular needs, such as holidays. Halloween has grown into an event beyond just trick-or-treating for kids. Now, there are adult parties and much more and all these activities are better with a little music or mood background.  The good news is: Pandora is ready to help you create the right Halloween feeling with a handful of selected Halloween-themed radio streams.

There's a station for most any need.

Halloween Party

This Halloween station features "standards" that everyone will recognize like "The Time Warp" from the Rocky Horror Picture Show, "Monster Mash" by Bobby "Boris" Pickett & the Crypt-Kickers, and "Ghostbusters" by Ray Parker, Jr. It's an excellent stream for general Halloween happenings.


This station has a harder edge and features bands like Nine Inch Nails, The Prodigy, and The Crystal Method. Less kid-friendly, more older adolescent and adult.

Spooky Symphonies Radio

Halloween for the cultured! Enjoy some famous themes like "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" by John Williams, the film score from Bram Stoker's Dracula by Polish composer Wojciech Kilar, and the film score from Psycho by Bernard Herrmann. These channel will complement your wine - or blood - depending on what you're drinking or who you're biting.



Pandora's Goth station features artists like The Mission UK, The Sisters of Mercy, London After Midnight, and Switchblade.

Some of the typical tracks include music such as "Every Day is Halloween" by Ministry and "Bela Lugosi's Dead" by Bauhaus.


Children's Halloween Radio

This channel draws a bit from recognizable themes such as the "Addams Family Values" film score by Marc Shaiman, "Harry's Haunted Halloween Circus" by Ralph's World and "Transylvania 1-2-3-4-5" by Seasame Street.

It is age-appropriate for a ghoulish good time.


Witch House

Welcome to the creepier and more experimental side. Tracks like "Devil Take You" by Zola Jesus, "Days" by Creep, and "See Birds" by Balam Acab.



This stream is simply stated and includes the likes of Donovan singing "Season of the Witch", "Monster Mash" by Bobby "Boris" Pickett & The Crypt-Kickers, "The Boogie Monster" from Gnarls Barkley, "Tubular Bells: Part One" by Mike Oldfield (the track that was used in the original Excorcist movie), and from the "Sweeney Todd Main Title" from the musical by Stephen Sondheim. This is rated "G" for general or ghoulish.


Ghostly Grooves

This is another edgy, creepy, Gothy channel featuring songs like "In the Desert" by LA Vampires & Zola Jesus, "I Just Had to Die" by The Knife, and "Thorns" by Wumpscut. (That's right: a band called Wumpscut.)
