Last night's Boston Accents loval music show was divided into two parts: the first hour featuring Halloween-appropriate songs, and the last 60 minutes dedicated to the late Billy Ruane, playing an hour of his favorite New England-based performers past and present. Host Dave Duncan also took calls from Aly Spaltro (Lady Lamb The Beekeeper), Sean Slade
(Fort Apache) and Mike Gill (Murder Mile & videographer), who shared their Ruane stories and memories live on air. Feel free to contact
Mike Gill at email@example.com for more information about his in-progress
