TALES FROM HORRORHOUND WEEKEND: The Late Dr. Lady!
My friend (and later co-blogger), David Albaugh, and I were anxious for me to attend the 2010 Indianapolis Horrorhound Weekend. We’d both grown up with a love for Svengoolie and had decided just a couple months prior to this event that we’d like to see what other hosts were operating around the country.

Throughout the weekend we’d meet many but, David Lady, host of The Late Dr. Lady Show was a tough one to track!
This was not surprising as he is not only a horror host ( as well as Mayor of his Chatfield, Ohio) but also a skilled props and mask maker!

Tune in next week for another “Tale from Horrorhound Weekend!”
