The Daves were honored to see us mentioned this morning in Svengoolie’s blog. Read on…
Excerpt from Svengoolie Blog 4-3-2011: Speaking of those fans around the nation-many years ago, my show was on the air in Boston- and those broadcasts were the basis for a nice article in a current special issue from our friends at “Scary Monsters” magazine. In the all-new “Monster Memories 2011 Yearbook”-David Albaugh writes about his memories of TV horror hosts- and tells about how,growing up in Rhode Island, he could pick up the “Creature Double Feature” on that station out of Boston- where he watched some guy named “Son of Svengoolie”! He writes about how he thought that I was actually broadcasting out of Boston, due to special segments I would tape that mentioned specific things about Boston and the station (we had to do that, at the time, for every city we were seen in- good thing we won’t have to customize the show for every place we’ll now be showing!) Dave writes about how my show got him hooked on horror host programs-and how he still watches us thanks to friends who send him recordings! hang in there, Dave- here’s hoping we’ll be showing up on a station near you once again ( it’s only fair that it happens every 20-something years or so!)-and thanks for the memories! (By the way, Dave and another Dave- Dave Fuentes-write about horror and horror hosts in their blog “Terror from Beyond the Daves”- https://terrordaves.wordpress.com/ -check it out!)
Funny thing- in that same “Monster Memories” magazine- about three articles before Dave’s horror host story- there’s an article about the “Creature Double Feature” that ran on WLVI in Boston- which was actually the same station Dave watched that I ran on- as part of that double feature-but that article has no mention of me! Like one of my friends used to say- “stick your finger in a glass of water, then remove it- that’s how much of an impression you’ve made!”
Also, come back on Tuesday, April 5th, for a followup as David A. discusses meeting his idol for the first time!
