Zombie riff is precisely the Pretty Vacant riff. Spooky.
Avatar 1:09pm Mailman Tom:

Bob Wilkens was my favorite TV horror host back in 1973 when I lived in S.F. I met him at a convention in California years later, and I got to thank him for his great show. I have his autograph on an 8x10 glossy, that I have framed and on display.
  1:12pm Phillip (Brooklyn):

Good afternoon REX! I always love your Halloween shows:-)
  1:18pm Listener Jumpy:

Wow, obscure reference in "Vampire's Ball": Kharis!

Red monsters !...green werewolves !....I don't know whether to stop or go !

the mummy was a dirty old man !

Rule one for Hallowe'en novelty songs: Song should clock in under 2 and half minutes. Rule two: Don't take any more time to write song than it takes to play.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:35pm fred:

@Juke Joint Jonny: I heartily endorse these rules
  1:36pm sam witch:

NOW it's BlACK THINGS...it's a Technicolor nightmare !!!
  1:37pm sam witch:

the # 666 made my last post possible...no kiddin
  1:37pm elmo:

that song was racist!
  1:39pm Shawn Garrett:

My horror host was Philly's Dr. Shock - who sadly died at 42 years old and the height of his popularity. He recorded a few songs like "Let There Be Fright", "The Bloody" & "Eat Your Heart Out Baby".

Hey M.T. Graves! Florida Horror host and great host!

Thanks Rex, for the great show. Any chance for "Ghoulardi Surf" or "Chilly Billy's Vamp" or "Sivad Buries Rock and Roll" or upstate NY's host's "The Chiller"?

"There's monsters in the graveyard... they seem to be having some kind of a bash... or a mash..."
  1:40pm Carny Con Chili:

look while you listen and be amazed...some jim dandy eye candy folks... a mishmash of delish trash....right this way ...(play sideshow slideshow)

Bo Diddley. Now that's just fantastic
  1:48pm Nardo:

That last announcement reminded me of Frank Zappa from Joe's Garage.
  1:49pm Shawn Garrett:

That was a great creatures features promo! Thanks! Any audio of NYC's The Creep from Creature Features (WNEW-TV, Channel 5, 1970-1980)?
  1:55pm pottybear:

Fondly recalling the great Bob Wilkins.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:00pm Gaylord Fields:

Speaking of horror hosts, as another year goes by and Zacherle(y) still walks amongst us, I'm slowly realizing that his ghoul schtick may not be schtick after all.

Anybody for a zombie cucumber sandwich?

Baron Daemon!
Avatar 2:14pm Sem Chumbo:

THE ZOMBIE’S CUCUMBER. The genus Brugmansia is a shrub with elegant, trumpet-like flowers and common all around South America. It might also erase your memories and destroy your free will, reducing you to a helpless flesh-slave in thrall to a voodoo priest. This flowering plant contain large amounts of the alkaloid scopolamine, known to some as “truth serum” for its ability to lessen inhibitions. In heavier dosages, products of this plant can cause delirium and hallucinations so powerful they can convince someone that they have died and come back to life as a mindless slave—the foundation of the zombie myth.

Well, today's Saturday, "Samedi" in French, as the famous Baron
Avatar 2:19pm Reeshard:

@ Gaylord. Point taken. Verrry scarrryyyyy...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:23pm fred:

According to Wikipedia, Baron Samedi "is noted for disruption, obscenity, debauchery, and having a particular fondness for tobacco and rum". No wonder Fool's Paradise runs on Saturdays.
Avatar 2:26pm Juke Joint Jonny:

Karen thanks you for the Baron Daemon twin spin. Makes you hungry for a Coney at Heid's, right?
  2:28pm JakeGould:

Creepy in that smelly dusty old amusement park way.
  2:31pm Yvonne:

stay sick turn blue
  2:33pm GOLDE:

Man, this is my favorite time of year to listen to the station. Thanks Rex!!!!
Avatar 2:45pm Andy in Berlin:

@ Gaylord - I went out to lunch with Zacherly many years ago and I would have to agree, it's not schtick at all.
  2:47pm Luther Strange:

Bama loves the FP Halloween Show!!! Roll BooooooTide. Go Rex.
  2:47pm Shawn Garrett:

Morgus & Sivad! Representing the obscure horror hosts!

Lena the Hyena! Another obscure reference.

Excellent show, Rex! While great in general, your Halloween show is always one of my faves every year.
Avatar 8:39am Garageman:

Doug Dickens with The Fireballs sound a heck of a lot like Bruce Joyner and the Unknowns. Or is it the other way round? Either way, cool song.
