We had Zacherle in New York for a while when I was a kid,, horror movie host on TV and later FM rock radio DJ! the man was a real class act, and one of the sweetest guys ever.

Merci, @Sem, in Canada on Halloween kids dress up as the Schmenge Brothers and go door-to-door collecting cold bottles of lager, right?

Thanks @kat330 for the impromptu serenade, I love them little double eighth notes too! BTW I posted a clarification about that song Danny Gatton did on the track Frank X. O'Ghoul played last week, you were right, t was not "Harlem Nocturne":


It's at the bottom of the page.

Avatar Thu. 10/30/14 7:34am Philo Gristle:

@P-90 Much as I like other (classic) horror movie hosts, Zacherley was in a class by himself. I appreciate they still have people like Svengoolie on Me-TV or whatever it's called but don't know whether it's just being too old by now....had nothing like this growing up in Finland, though recall a particularly spooky Finn tv version of Dracula that scared the bejezus out of me.

...I like the story Dave Van Ronk had his arrangement of 'House of the Rising Sun' & wanted to record it - & Dylan adopted it & recorded it 1st on him & everyone said he was doing 'Dylan's song' - but Dave delighted in saying the Animals did the same to Bob ! - & hence sighted as early FolkRawk...Eric Burdon said they were on Tour w/ Chuck Berry - & why try to out-do him? - so they went for something different w/ 'House'...

@kat330: Nice "Haunted House"! Brava, Diva!

I initially thought that Gatton track was the "Honeymooners" theme, because it was actually the theme from the Gleason variety show... Remember the "Sammy Spear Orchestra" and the "June Taylor Dancers?"

And remember the "Musical Honeymooners?" I'm scared to go back and check those out, cuz I'm sure they are NOT (nearly) as good as I remember...

Every WFMU-J brings a unique knowledge of Music & Culture (&! - Diligence in bringing it to us) & way of programming/presenting
- therefore - the loss of same is always a big deal
...but there's also the unique leetle Community vibe going on this here Comments Board - I've really appreciated the particular friendly camaraderie & wit here !! It's felt very free & relaxed - but also mature & w/out crap - & interesting all @ once ! Thanks - Everybody !!
...@ one point when I was fresher to the 'FMU scene' I was feeling like I didn't fit w/ the NY-NJ hipsters or - whatever - & the next thing I know I tune into UTP & it's a Wh♂ LoveFest - & little could be more welcoming to me (they've dealt w/ that theme a lot too)...well anyhow...
- I can see the Theme - uh - Theme might be something you feel you've done - & done well...

I like your free form shows. Maybe you could do "stealth" theme shows. You know, double secret, under the radar themes. Known only to the mysterious "insiders"

Meghan, if you don't appear on the new schedule, I'll go from silent marathon to silent protest. No matter what your time slot, I can always hear you through the archive.
  Thu. 10/30/14 7:55am P-90:

Well, there you go, Ken just has your best interests at heart, Dear.
And it isn't such a big surprise really, you've been talking about moving to a "real", "on-air", "decent hour of the day" shift for a while, I recall you were saying it might even happen the last time the schedule changed.
This "Fuck" show should be done from Monty Hall with a live audience, I hope you know :p

@Caryn: I would bet that's a done deal, Ken wouldn't let Meghan drop off the schedule after she toiled so fruitfully to light up the web-only buttcrack of dawn.
