Candy!

Halloween's not til tomorrow but Beggar's Night was tonight in our neighborhood. Here's TheBoy in his homemade Wedgehead costume and this year's candy haul.


"Candy 101" KNDE broadcast from Reno, Nevada in the early to mid-1990s. I have no idea what their format was as most Google searches lead to the currently operating Top-40 station "Candy 95.1" from College Station, Texas which also uses the KNDE call letters. 100.9 FM is licensed to Sparks, NV and is now an Alternative Rock station KRZQ.
