Bobby “Boris” Pickett, famous for his “Monster Mash” Halloween anthem, used to visit with me nearly every Halloween in studio, before he died in April of 2007! The story behind his creation of “Monster Mash” is a recall of radio & record artists working together to literally create a hit song overnight! “Monster Mash” debuted on the charts in early October of 1962, and by Halloween, it was #1! It was back on the charts in 1970, and then appeared a record-setting 3rd time on the charts, and even hit the top 10 in 1973!
