Halloween used to be for kids only. Until aging baby boomers appropriated Halloween for themselves, Halloween was one time when kids had a holiday of their own. You realize how much boomers have held on to childhood, when your local bank teller is a scurvy pirate and the supermarket check out lady is dressed as Wonder Woman.

“I Put a Spell on You” will always be a Halloween classic—seeing Screamin’ Jay Hawkins perform it LIVE is truly scary!

John has worked as a professional bassist for 20 years, including a 15 year stint as Musical Director of the Mountain Stage radio program. John has been at KNKX since 1999 where he hosts “All Blues”, is producer of the BirdNote radio program, and co-hosts “Record Bin Roulette”. John is also the recording engineer for KNKX “In-Studio Performances”. Not surprisingly, John's main musical interests are jazz and blues, and he is still performing around Seattle.
John Maynard started working in radio in the seventies as a DJ at Seattle’s KJR AM which at the time was the dominant AM station in the Seattle market. After a brief stint as a restaurateur and night club owner, Maynard returned to radio with Robin Erickson, creating the hugely popular “Robin and Maynard Show.” In the more than 20 years under that marquee, Maynard flew with the Blue Angels, piloted the Goodyear Blimp, sang with Donny Osmond and hung out in a Universal Studios bar with Kojak (Telly Savalas).
