I saw her on the Mike Douglas Show and Mercedes McCambridge did the demon sounds live and in person and it was frightening to see the actress distort her face when she screeched ! She was Freaky ! Like she was actually possessed!

Say, that Teenage Riot song sounds like the Fuzzcicle!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:23pm Handy Haversack:

Hey, JJJ! That Queens protest last week was a really good one. Great young leaders from BLM who spoke powerfully of their experiences and the movement. We marched back toward the Pulaski and then to the precinct off Vernon Blvd. Then to the Gantry Park for sharing -- and a Sikh-owned restaurant donated meals to everyone! Very, very good day, though hot as blazes on the Queens streets.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:24pm Handy Haversack:

(Is the last thing she says "let it go at that"? Or is it a phrase in some secret language of the radio people?)
  1:26pm davefromtoronto:

that bomb sound is appropriate for "private war"
Avatar 1:27pm Juke Joint Jonny:

Mercedes McCambridge was the best. In the early 1970s she was one of the stars of CBS Radio Mystery Theater. A throwback to the golden age, I used to tune in the transistor under my pillow after lights out.
