Heard that part in your intro "The whole worlds gone crazy" on a Kolchak: The Night Stalker episode last night. "The Spanish Moss Murders". Crazy indeed!

May I make a suggestion for a actor for a future memorial playlist (unless of course you already memorialize him). His name was BARNEY MARTIN. He was in a ton of TV shows.

Attention Fools: The marathon is coming up, and that means a new premium from Rex! If you click on my avatar you can see a teaser of that very thing! The extremely primitive beginnings of the cover.
