Happy Thursday, Kids Commuters! Hope you had a great Halloween! We continue with SPOOKY Week on IPR's Kids Commute.

Today, well hear music from Manuel de Falla's ballet "El Amor Brujo" ("Love the Magician"). In today's piece, poor Candela is haunted by the ghost of her husband, who comes to dance with her every night. The neighbors know the ghost is real, but they still think she's crazy!

We'll hear two bits of music: "El Aparecido" ("The Apparition" - the appearance of the ghost) and "Danza del Terror" ("The Dance of Terror").
