Hi, All. Love this soundtrack.
Avatar 3:03pm BC Sterrett:

Avatar 3:05pm Mr Fab:

Some really anal soundtrack music fans figured out the previous films the "Night of The Living Dead" cues were used. Like, these '50s sci-fi flicks. That's what happens when you use production library music, sometimes keen-eared fans recognize the same pieces from other movies.

When you’re so used to psychedelic music that nothing sounds scary anymore

Hello BC & all! Good! I needed movie suggestions... here they are
Avatar 3:10pm Mr Fab:

To answer Daniel Johnston's' question about how did Caspar the Friendly ghost die: "Casper was a twelve-year-old boy living in Whipstaff Manor with his inventor father J.T. McFadden until he died from pneumonia after playing out in the cold until it was past nightfall."
Avatar 3:10pm Mailman Tom:

Do they still hold screaming contests? Phyllis Coates gave off a bone chilling scream in I Was a Teenage Frankenstein
Avatar 3:11pm Mr Fab:

nothing's as scary as this '80s production/drum sounds!
Avatar 3:12pm Bri The Beatnik:

And Hey Joe!

Hello Bri, Sonderange bot, Mailman and Joe :)
Avatar 3:12pm Bri The Beatnik:

True Mr. Fab!

Hey BC!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:13pm joe:

When I was very young I thought Casper was Richie Rich's ghost
Avatar 3:17pm Mr Fab:

Quite logical, joe! Just looked it up, and Richie Rich and Caspar were both published by the same company (Harvey Comics), so there ya go.
Avatar 3:19pm BC Sterrett:

Holy Cow, we're having a really violent hail storm here!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:22pm Rich in Washington:

I remember Bart Simpson saying the same thing about Casper/Richie and I just about died laughing.
Avatar 3:23pm BC Sterrett:

I ran outside it was a blast :)
Avatar 3:23pm Mr Fab:

Tony Randall is...the Time Traveler.
Avatar 3:24pm Mr Fab:

Careful BC, hail stones can really brain ya. Sheena doesn't want to lose any of her DJs.
Avatar 3:24pm BC Sterrett:

That does sound like Tony Randall
Avatar 3:26pm solo mon:

Hi ev buddy:-)
Avatar 3:26pm BC Sterrett:

I mostly ran out to save some hand sanded record holding apple crates.
Avatar 3:26pm BC Sterrett:

Hellooo solooo
Avatar 3:27pm BC Sterrett:

I think I was in high school when I read this book.
Avatar 3:28pm Mr Fab:

Wells wrote "The Time Machine" because he was worried that workers and the ruling class would become so disconnected from each other, they'd split into different species. That message was lost on a public that just said, "Cool, time machines!"
Avatar 3:29pm BC Sterrett:

Very cool info fab!
Avatar 3:31pm BC Sterrett:

How do you label an LP sized 45 on here?
Avatar 3:32pm Mr Fab:

It's still an LP, so you can leave that description.

(a 45 rpm album is pretty odd...)
Avatar 3:33pm Mr Fab:

how kooky would it have been if Tony Randall really did star in "The Time Machine"? It would have to be a musical.
Avatar 3:34pm Mr Fab:

The Bomboras! Cool band. Saw 'em live at the old Rhino Records store in the '90s. The keyboardist lit his organ on fire. Which was not nearly as painful as it sounds.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:36pm joe:

I couldn't find any info on who is narrating but I did find that on the The Wonderland Imagination Theatre versions of The Invisible Man and Around the World in 80 Days the cover art was done by an noncredited Wally Wood.
Avatar 3:36pm BC Sterrett:

Tony Randall in "The 7 Faces of Dr. Lao" is a favorite.
Avatar 3:36pm BC Sterrett:

Wally Wood!
Avatar 3:37pm Rush-Shell:

Bombora...isn't that a name of a ride at Lagoon? A roller coaster? Funny
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38pm joe:

And yes TR as the the Time Traveler would have been very interesting
Avatar 3:39pm BC Sterrett:

I don't remember... I hear Lagoon is open, I wonder if it's just limited entry and separation of seating I imagine.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39pm joe:

I have to give credit where credit is due my introduction to the Bomboras is thanks to Rob Zombie
Avatar 3:40pm BC Sterrett:

This HAS to be Tony Randall
Avatar 3:40pm Rush-Shell:

It's the roller coaster that plays surf music.
Avatar 3:42pm Mr Fab:

It was a "very special episode" of "The Odd Couple."

"Aw c'mon, Felix, let's get outta here! They ain't got no bowling alleys in the future!"
"Oscar, please. these destitute proletariat need our assistance!"
Avatar 3:42pm BC Sterrett:

I LOVE Lagoon. Especially the Pioneer Village especially. They used to have fake cowboy shootouts there when I was a kid. I think I'm too scared to go there this year, I still avoid thrift stores and grocery stores when I can. I'm still on lockdown as the corona stats spike.
Avatar 3:43pm Mr Fab:

Where's Lagoon? Utah?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:43pm joe:

Might I ask what Lagoon is. It sounds like an amusement park so I'm intrigued.
Avatar 3:43pm Rush-Shell:

Yes it's in Utah
Avatar 3:44pm BC Sterrett:

Yes :) Local theme park. The Beach Boys mention it in their "Salt Lake City" song. They used to perform there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm joe:

In the end they have to depend on Crazy Rhoda Zimmerman to get them back home
Avatar 3:44pm solo mon:

Yes an amusement park doesn’t sound like much fun right now.
Avatar 3:46pm BC Sterrett:

About 20 mins from my house. Always wanted to work there with the cool teens, now that I can, I'm too old. ha ha.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46pm joe:

Wow 10 coasters
Avatar 3:48pm BC Sterrett:

Their cheesy haunted house rides were always a favorite. It always made me sad when they would update and make changes. The skeleton girl taking a bath, and the Tor Johnson mask part are no more.
Avatar 3:48pm Mr Fab:

And there really is one called Bombora.
Avatar 3:48pm solo mon:

Men have become useless and terrible , oh you mean like NOW?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:49pm Webhamster Henry:

@joe I have a 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea kid version with a credited Wally Wood cover.
Avatar 3:49pm BC Sterrett:

If there are any records you would like to hear on future episodes let me know!
Avatar 3:50pm Rush-Shell:

Just thought it was a funny coincidence. The Bomboras, The Creature From... Lagoon
Avatar 3:50pm BC Sterrett:

The sped up Morlock corpse decay was always the favorite part I waited for when this movie played on TV :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm joe:

There is nothing like stumbling on a park or pier that has not updated their darkrides.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm joe:

@webhamster henry I bet that is how someone was able to confirm that he did the work on the other two.
Avatar 3:53pm Mr Fab:

@Rush-Shell, think Lagoon's managers are fans of contemporary surf bands? Or is it merely a...mysterious coincidence (cue spooky music)

the "20,000 Leagues Under The Sea" record would be cool. Do you have that one, BC?
Avatar 3:54pm BC Sterrett:

If I don't I'll seek it out!
Avatar 3:55pm Rush-Shell:

Must be fans...too strange not to be! Haha
Avatar 3:59pm BC Sterrett:

I don't usually buy new releases/re-issues but this one was on sale for $7 brand new.
Avatar 3:59pm BC Sterrett:

Thanks for listening, this is my final track :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:00pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

Great show, BC!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:01pm joe:

Greattime BC Thank you!!!!
Avatar 4:01pm Rush-Shell:

Very cool show, BC. I forgot all about Horror Movies. I remember that song from when I was little. Fun to hear again!Thanks!
Avatar 4:02pm Mr Fab:

yay, thanks!
Avatar 4:02pm BC Sterrett:

Thanks everyone :) Next week: Pt. 2 of the Bigfoot stuff that I started on the LMA show!

I need to slow down the computer voice. ha ha. Until next time...
