Halloween Party Music on a Budget. 

When planning music for your Halloween Party, or indeed any party it is easy to get carried away and possibly spend a lot of money on themed CDs or Download lots of tracks that fit into the feel of your party. However with a little bit of careful planning you can get most if not all your music for free… 

Yes you read that right for free. When planning a party now I have two first ports of call for music and then choose the best for what I am looking for. 

First up is a fantastic radio app called Accuradio. This is an app that you can download to your mobile device or you can also access it via the Internet on your laptop. The thing I love about the app is the amount of genres, tracks and artists available. The creators have split these down into different channels and this has been no different with Halloween. They have no less then five different channels, yes five, all set for a variety of party types from a kiddie party up to the adult only type. It is so easy to use, you literally select the channel you want and press play, plug your mobile device in to a speaker system and voila instant free music. 

The other go to place that I use is YouTube. Now this does take a little bit more time to organise because you can set up your own playlists, you also run the risk of adverts, which you don’t get with Accuradio, however the advantage is you can pick and choose what you want to listen to. So if you are after something for really young preschoolers then you can tailor your playlist to that area. 

For our Halloween party I managed to put a playlist of Seventeen songs together in an evening and they all fitted the age range I was looking for. 

Again if you have the YouTube app on your mobile device then you can just plug it into a speaker system and away you go. 

My new Favourite App! 


I have discovered a fantastic App that I want to share with you. It’s not a parenting app although it might help you chill out when the kids decide they are going to play up.

The App is called Accuradio and is available for free on IOS and Android devices. 

This is a radio app and you can’t download the songs played but there is a button that takes you too the App Store so you can purchase and download anything that takes your fancy. 

Some of the Genres available are 

  • 50s Music
  • Disco
  • Movie Soundtracks
  • Blues
  • Jazz
  • Pop

And there are many more. This app has become a firm favourite of mine and I use it and am able to listen to various genres of music whenever I want and during May they are adding a new channel a day, so even more great music to listen too.
