EPISODE 53: Happy Hawkeye Halloween 2017, Part 2 of 4 - Monster Turtle of Big Blue Lake and Other Iowa Sea Creatures



Welcome back to the booful abode of The Evil Doctor OlderMusicGeek, as we present another netherlandish node of Iowa Halloween music. This episode we bring you a grizzly group of rock, pop, rap, and electronic music.

Also, a warning, some of these delightful diddlies have words and situations that may frighten the parents of wee ones!


If you weren't here last time, shame on you! But for those not in the know, each episode this Halloween is named after one of Iowa's own monsters!


This episode named after the creepy creature in The Big Blue Lake in Mason City. This quarry turned lake apparently has a giant sea turtle the size of a Volkswagen lurking in its depths.

But Mason City also apparently has a SECOND monster, Mugwump, that hangs out in The Ventura Marsh.


I don't know why, but northern Iowa seems to have most of our sea monsters. Okoboji Lake is also suppose to have a creature swimming in its lake that has been said to brush up against various boats.

Of course, The Okoboji Monster, might be related to the evil spirit that the Native Americans said was in the connecting Big Spirit Lake.


But our lakes are not the only waterways holding deadly danger for you. No, our own Missisppi River has a monster of its own. 

The Kraken, or Pepie if you're from Wisconsin, or Maneto if you're a Meskwaki, is a creature that is claimed to have terrorized The Mississippi River since at least the 19th century if not longer!


So now that the monster lecture is over, it is time to go listen to some spine-chilling Iowa musical tales!

EPISODE 52 - Happy Hawkeye Halloween 2017, Part 1 of 4: Killer Cows and Other Iowa Furry Monsters



Hello! Bwahahahaha!

Welcome back, you foolish souls who dare to tread in the abode of The Evil Doctor OlderMusicGeek.


This year, we have done something ingenuous! Bwahahaha!

We have given each episode more of an Iowa flavor by naming it after a monster that can be found in our quaint state, and provide you with a little information on said creatures and its relatives!

Oh yes, The Corn Spirit - whether you follow the Native American one or the pagan European corn gods - seems to have kept our state fairly safe from too many harmful creatures... unfortunately!

We don't seem to have an overabundance of aliens here, despite 3 "airships" with "Martians' chrashing in our state in mid-April 1897.

But like anywhere else, we do have a share of cryptids and cryptozoological creatures!


Some come in a furry form.

For instance, the cow! Yes, the benign bovine you moo at playfully.

Did you know this beast kills more people in the U.S. per year than sharks, alligators, bears, snakes, and spiders combined!

Makes you look at it a little differently doesn't it?


And Iowa also has its share of Bigfeet. Look at The Grassman, the plains' own version of Bigfoot, named because it likes to walk in the tall grass. - Though it would have been more awesome it had been made of grass!

The most famous case seems to be The Hairy Wild Woman seen in 1884 in Gordon's Ferry near Dubuque.

Also, our own Lockridge Monster has been claimed to be a Bigfoot or relative to Bigfeet.

Plus, we have had plenty of plain, good ole Bigfoot sightings here too.


Besides these Bigfoot types, we also have the shunka warakin, hyena/wolf creatures that carries off dogs, and phantom kangaroos have been spotted here as well!


So to celebrate this strange, furry animals that provide a little magic in our cornfields, we present, for this part, some acoustic and folky tunes that are bit bent and twisted.

PLAYLISTS: Iowa Halloween Music (on Spotify and YouTube)

I won't lie, Iowa Music Scene! You have let me down! You are not deserving to be an assistant to The Evil Doctor OlderMusicGeek!

I gave you a simple assignment! And a year to do it! And still you have failed me!

Eye-gor from "Young Frankenstein" could do a better job!

There are still no Iowa Halloween music playlists except my own!

Am I forever damned to live an eternity of listening to Iowa-made Halloween music that only I have discovered?! What a sad and weary life some of us horror clich├ęs live!


Well, anyway, you useless lot, I have again made a second playlist. Okay, it's first time to make this second playlist. I mean I made second playlists before. But this is the first second playlist for Iowa Halloween music. I think!

Damn you, lot! You have made my brain befuddled as your own!


*Sigh* Okay, I have made a second playlist of Halloween music from Iowa (and Omaha) music acts. This time from YouTube.

If you can't manage to make your own playlist, you can dare provide suggestions for mine at iowamusicshowcase@gmail.com.


I have also made a few additions to the Spotify playlist I made last year and have included it too!

EPISODE 51: Iowa Hip-Hop and Rap 2 (and 3 episodes of the Iowa Block Radio rap podcast)



Well, we once again look at the hip-hop and rap music in Iowa.

There are other genres I haven't even covered yet, but the submissions are piling up, so here we are!


And if you want to hear more Iowa hip-hop and rap, don't forget about the podcast, Iowa Block Radio, that deals exclusively with hip-hop and rap from our fair state! You can find them at https://www.spreaker.com/user/iowa_block_radio.

They don't seem as active as they once were, but they got 105 episodes running from 1 to 3 hours, so there's plenty there to keep you busy. In fact, I'll embed the last three episodes on the bottom.


And just a gentle reminder that all of these were submissions, and you can send me your submissions at iowamusicshowcase@gmail.com.
