And by night, she goes on bad dates with misbehaving dudes she's matched with on the ubiquitous dating app Fluttr. But after one dick pic too many, Mel has had it. Using her brilliant coding skills, she designs an app of her own, one that allows users to log harrassers and abusers in the online dating space.
It's called JerkAlert, and it goes viral overnight. Mel is suddenly in way over her head. Worse still, her almost-boyfriend, the dreamy Alex Hernandez—the only non-douchey guy at Hatch—has no idea she's the brains behind the app. Soon, Mel is faced with a terrible choice: one that could destroy her career, love life and friendships, or change her life forever.

In this collection, including two never-before-published essays, Nussbaum writes about her passion for television, beginning with Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the show that set her on a fresh intellectual path. She explores the rise of the female screw-up, how fans warp the shows they love, the messy power of sexual violence on TV, and the year that jokes helped elect a reality-television president. The book also includes a major new essay written during the year of MeToo, wrestling with the question of what to do when the artist you love is a monster.
Through it all, Nussbaum recounts her fervent search, over fifteen years, for a new kind of criticism, one that resists the false hierarchy that elevates one kind of culture violent, dramatic, gritty over another joyful, funny, stylized. Emily Nussbaum has written for The New Yorker since Previously, she was the TV critic and editor of the The Culture Pages for New York magazine, where she created the "Approval Matrix," the playful culture charticle that to this day closes out each issue of New York.

What was happening to faith in the heartland? From drugstores in Sydney, Iowa, to skeet shooting in rural Illinois, to the mega churches of Minneapolis, Lenz set out to discover the changing forces of faith and tradition in God's country. Part journalism, part memoir, God Land is a journey into the heart of a deeply divided America. Lenz visits places of worship across the heartland and speaks to the everyday people who often struggle to keep their churches afloat and to cope in a land of instability.
Through a thoughtful interrogation of the effects of faith and religion on our lives, our relationships, and our country, God Land investigates whether our divides can ever be bridged and if America can ever come together.

Trick Mirror, her first essay collection, will be published by Random House in Many liberals even resisted the movement to end rape on campus. And yet, legal, political, and cultural efforts, often spearheaded by women of color, were quietly paving the way for the takedown of abusers and harassers.
Reckoning delivers the stirring tale of a movement catching fire as pioneering women in the media exposed the Harvey Weinsteins of the world, women flooded the political landscape, and the walls of male privilege finally began to crack. This is revelatory, essential social history. Jia Tolentino is a peerless voice of her generation, tackling the conflicts, contradictions, and sea changes that define us and our time. Now, in this dazzling collection of nine entirely original essays, written with a rare combination of give and sharpness, wit and fearlessness, she delves into the forces that warp our vision, demonstrating an unparalleled stylistic potency and critical dexterity.
Trick Mirror is an enlightening, unforgettable trip through the river of self-delusion that surges just beneath the surface of our lives. This is a book about the incentives that shape us, and about how hard it is to see ourselves clearly through a culture that revolves around the self.

These monsters embody patriarchal fear of women, and illustrate the violence with which men enforce traditionally feminine roles.

Terry was born in to an African American father and an Irish American mother. Terry lives in Los Angeles with his family. Carrie Goldberg: Nobody's Victim. Her battle ground is the courtroom; her crusade to transform clients from victims into warriors.
In gripping detail, Carrie shares the diabolical ways her clients are attacked and how she, through her unique combination of advocacy, badass relentlessness, risk-taking, and client-empowerment, gets justice for them all. There are stories about a woman whose ex-boyfriend made fake bomb threats in her name and caused a national panic; a fifteen year old girl who was sexually assaulted on school grounds, then suspended when she reported the attack; and a man whose ex-boyfriend used a dating app to send over men to his home and work for sex.
With breathtaking honestly, Carrie even shares stories of her own shattering abuse. While her clients are a diverse group—from every gender, sexual orientation, age, class, race, religion, occupation and background - offenders are not. They are highly predictable. In this book, Carrie offers a taxonomy of the four types of offenders she encounters most often at her firm: assholes, psychos, pervs, and trolls. Prior to becoming a lawyer, Carrie spent five years working for Nazi victims, and before starting her firm in , she worked at the Vera Institute of Justice in New York City.

Well, half a sham. While the program has successfully launched five capsules into space, the Chief Designer and his team have never successfully brought one back to earth.
But in a nation built on secrets and propaganda, the biggest lie of all is about to unravel. Because there are no more twins left. Combining history and fiction, the real and the mystical, First Cosmic Velocity is the story of Leonid, the last of the twins. Taken in from a life of poverty in Ukraine to the training grounds in Russia, the Leonids were given one name and one identity, but divergent fates. Now one Leonid has launched to certain death or so one might think… , and the other is sent on a press tour under the watchful eye of Ignatius, the government agent who knows too much but gives away little.
And while Leonid battles his increasing doubts about their deceitful project, the Chief Designer must scramble to perfect a working spacecraft, especially when Khrushchev nominates his high-strung, squirrel-like dog for the first canine mission.

Bassey Ikpi was born in Nigeria in Four years later, she and her mother joined her father in Stillwater, Oklahoma —a move that would be anxiety ridden for any child, but especially for Bassey.
Her early years in America would come to be defined by tension: an assimilation further complicated by bipolar II and anxiety that would go undiagnosed for decades. Determined to learn from her experiences—and share them with others—Bassey became a mental health advocate and has spent the fourteen years since her diagnosis examining the ways mental health is inextricably intertwined with every facet of ourselves and our lives.
Viscerally raw and honest, the result is an exploration of the stories we tell ourselves to make sense of who we are—and the ways, as honest as we try to be, each of these stories can also be a lie.

Pictured and discussed with a bunch of other early horror hosts in "The Horror of Them All! Here are some tantalizing snippets from Ken's memories of Marvin that you'll find there: The show would begin with the title appearing on the screen only to shatter like breaking glass revealing a laughing skeleton who beckoned the viewers to "come on in.
Marvin could best be described as a demented beatnik type, dressed all in black and sporting a pair of thick lensed black hornrim glasses. He spoke with a voice that was a cross between Peter Lorre and Renfield Many viewers referred to him as "Mad Marvin" He was kept company by his wife who he only called "Dear" One was never sure just who or what "Dear" was as it was common for Marvin to ask "Dear" to lend him a hand only to get the entire arm instead!
On the last telecast of Shock Theatre viewers finally got to see what "Dear" looked like. As the show was winding to a close, Marvin turned to his companion and said "Dear, why don't you say good-bye to our friends? The preschool program featured a cast of ventriloquial and hand puppet characters including Timothy Timber the sailor, Uncle Louie the talking picture, Mr. Head a box with a voice , Mr. Engineer, Bertram the sleepy turtle, and angry little boy Rusty Hinges. The show aired weekday mornings from 8 to 9, and earned three nominations for Emmys.
Collections curated by Keoghs Books
To summarize with a little info thrown in from Ken Kwil's page , the show was so popular that a half-hour segment was added after the movie ended called "The Shocktale Party," in which Marvin was joined by "Shorty" tall puppeteer Bruce Newton in a rubber Frankenstein mask , "Orville" the hunchback servant Ronny Born , and a "shocktale band" dressed in black called "The Dead Beats," a four-piece combo bass fiddle, bongos, guitar, and squeeze box who provided background music while Marvin read offbeat poems or performed musical parodies.
The show was so popular with its mostly young audience that it spawned the Terry "Marvin" Bennett Fan Club; see examples from Don Glut's collection at the link above, As usual, parents were less enthusiastic about it, and Shock Theater was cancelled despite a petition signed by thousands of fans. Terry has taken to his role like a ghoul out of a grave! But so far his one million viewers haven't seen Joy's face. Mazeppa Pompazoidi see DR. Maniac, Dr. Meagle, Howard see MR. Name of show? This fairy tale tells about a sloppy alien puppet monster who, presumably by accident, enters Planet Earth via a TV satellite dish.
This enormous monster appears on the TV screen at first, then, talk about visual effects, it eventually materializes, appearing live, in the flesh! There is also a horror movie hostess, Medusa Jennifer Richards who fits into this scheme for absolutely no plausible reason.
Mephisto see MR. Meridian, Dr. Fictional horror hostess in thriller Midnight , starring Lynn Redgrave as a wildly successful late night TV horror hostess whose greedy producers are ruining her career Late night weekends? Ford, who contributed details about another new show in Reno, Frank's House of Horror Movies with Zomboo , also added this one to our list, writing: The host is a bit more straightforward in his presentation.
The show is Cheap Thrills Theater and it plays on the local public access channel in Reno so it's available only on cable. The host is a guy named Mike Ward. It's more of a no-frills production than is Zomboo's show but, because of its public access status, he can show films that aren't public domain recent showings were Legend of Boggy Creek and the biker flick The Peace Killers.
Both shows are entertaining in their own ways. As Reno's original horror and exploitation movie host, Mike Ward is proud to expose himself and these films to you. Whether you like horror, sci-fi, exploitation, or sexploitation films, you will find something you may enjoy on Cheap Thrills Theatre. You will not, however, find any big budget, mainstream Hollywood crap that clogs the theaters and TV these days. Let's return to the drive-in trash of yesteryear! Stay Cheap!!! I started showing these films to fill a void left by the crappy programming on current TV.
It seems as if television would like you to think these types of films never existed. I was hooked the first time Bob showed Night of the Living Dead in I knew I had found the genre I loved! Thanks, Bob!! Ghastly real name Barbara Ends was one of our local horror movie hosts. It was a really hokey but entertaining show. She had lots of people doing cameos like the weather guy and stage hands and even a cookie monster puppet they called the Little Blue Guy he didn't have any feet. E-gorespondent "Edward Hieronymus" sent more details: I was surprised and delighted to find Millicent B.
Ghastly listed. I watched her show on WLEX many times between the ages of 12 and 14 From the first episode when she apparently couldn't find her way into the studio and the first segment dealt with helping her get into the studio. The awful obscure movies that it showed for two years, and then the last summer that she was on WLEX and they showed classics like Frankenstein , Dracula , and The Invisible Man.
I noticed that you didn't have a time or a day listed for the program, so I thought I would send you information on it. The name of the program was Monsterpiece Theatre. It came on following Saturday Night Live and lasted two hours, - a. While the show was on she had a fan club and would read a letters from the mailbag on the air. Sometimes, they would accidently run nude scenes on the air or play Gumby cartoons for inexplicable reasons. I never knew what Millicent's real name was. After Millicent B. Ghastly left the show, Monsterpiece Theatre continued for a while.
It even got two new hosts that you might want to put on your list -- Kruiser and Craig, the two morning comedy deejays on the Lexington station It has been a classic rock station since its inception in the mid's. I think that Kruiser's real name is Frank Kruisenkowski. I remember them wearing suits, and they may have filmed the show at the Kentucky Theater -- Lexington's movie palace. They dropped the antics of the stage hands and the Little Blue Guy. I think Monsterpiece Theatre went off the air in It didn't have a host at that time, and I believe their last movie was Night of the Living Dead on Halloween night or weekend.
Howard McClain worked on this show! Never in my time there did any nudity "accidentally" run during the show. And the Gumby cartoons aired only when technical problems i. The shows with the new hosts, Kruiser and Craig, were taped beforehand. Millicent left the show of her own free will when her husband took a job on the east coast. Not even in commercial time for their own business venture outside of the studio. They were strictly volunteer. Kruiser and Craig were another matter. They were paid for their appearances with comp time for their hugely popular radio show that aired on "DOUBLE Q" radio as well as a regular salary.
The production on their version of the show was a drastic change. Everything had to be perfect. Instead of the usual weekend director who doubled as the weekend news director , they were granted prime mid-day studio time and one of the best video directors that the company had. More time was spent on lighting the small set and the 2 principles than it took to prepare for a full scale "Millicent B Ghastly-musical production-which was done from time to time.
There was no real link to the horror movies being shown. No Horror Host high-jinks. Even the one time road trip to Kentucky Theater Movie Palace was a bust. As Kruiser and Craig's on-air partnership busted on both TV and radio. Thus was the demise of Monsterpiece Theatre. I figured my experience as everything from studio cameraman to chief audio operator for all live telecasts would land me a job.
Sadly, it didn't. Magazine references: Milton Budd pictured in and out of character click the Milton portrait on sidebar to display both pictures , show and personal life discussed on half-page 42 of feature article "TV's Nightmares" in February issue of TV Star Parade , pp. A small glowing blob of spectral white appeared in the middle of a black screen, weaving uncertainly as it grew larger. I am stronger, stronger, strong," a ghostly voice announced as the blob became an eerily-lit face. Milton Budd, who'd portrayed a sardonically cruel devil at grid dinners for many years, seemed the natural choice.
Actually the pleasant radio veteran doesn't resemble the Nightmare host a bit. For 25 years he's endeared himself to the people of Central Illinois as an announcer and deejay. He still does several radio record shows each week. Is it any wonder the midnight madness continues? Not really. And who can say how long the Halloween hilarity will go on. Old show fan Mike Isenberg wrote several times from Hollywood, California; here's a slightly-adapted consolidation of his comments: I am originally from Pekin, just next to Peoria, Illinois, and having been born in , saw a lot of Nightmare.
In fact, I went to school with Milton's daughter Beryl, who once had him appear in character at one of her birthday parties. Beryl and I are still in touch, I'm sure she would love to talk to you. I am contacting her and asking her to contact you personally. Milton's cackling laugh opening the show was absolutely classic and scared the hell out of everyone.
The show contained several "monologues" by Milton per broadcast, usually scarier than the movie itself. There was also a "station identification card" that took up the TV screen before the show would return from a commercial. It was an artist's rendering of a graveyard with a big vulture sitting in a leafless craggy looking tree. Milton's nightmare character had a name for the vulture. At each shows end he would reappear and after closing remarks he would do that blood-chilling laugh and the face would fade into the distance on the black screen. I saw every single show until it's demise.
I've been all over the U. Such a wonderful person and genuinely sweet guy, but a seriously scary cat in the dark! If there is anything else I can recall, you'll be the first to know! Another Milton fan, Sharlie Walker, wrote to request a picture of him and wrote again when I posted the ones on the sidebar: Thanks so much for the pic and article. Now while that man scared the beegeebers out of me every time he came on -- my dad always reminded me that he was really just that kind man from WMBD -- didn't matter, still had me hiding behind the chair.
I can recall his intro and laugh vividly to this day. George -- thanks again -- you have provided me and my family with a fantastic trip down memory lane. See "Ahoy There Little Mateys!

His Scary Monsters interview with Faye Fisher asks the right questions, and gets some great answers, some of which I've adapted below to flesh out this entry! Faye Fisher answered a casting call while she was a visual arts major at the University of Wisconsin, Green Bay, and though she had minimal acting experience at the time, she was hired because she had "facial expressions, poise, and body language" and "could handle awkward moments.
Faye got her costumes from a local vintage shop called "Glad Rags. She wasn't allowed to wear anyting too sexy because the station manager was very religious. Her arms had to be covered, and she had to wear long, high-necked gowns that covered her legs. Ironically, she was asked if she'd "stuff and pad" herself to mimic parts of Elvira's appeal, but she told them "No. What you see is what you get here. I'm not going to do some stupid, cheesy, 'Elvira' thing. I didn't want it that badly. They made my eyes dark. I had "cat's eyes," and long, dark, defined eyebrows. I used red lipstick, and rouge on the cheekbones.
They just highlighted what I already had. Once I saw myself, it helped me get into character. Here I was dressed exquisitely, with the make-up.

There was a sexual edge to my character, but it wasn't overt I was just this classy, sophisticated, spooky person. The part of her sidekick "Klystron" named for a very expensive vacuum tube used at the station , was played by Jim, one of the cameramen, who played spooky music on the organ to open the show while Misty rose from her coffin.
He wore a suit jacket and never talked, just grunted. It turns out he was cameraman for her show. I think it only ran from through or It always aired late night on the weekends so as not to offend any viewers. We had a lot of fun with it. We had to stay late to do the shoots, so all of the crew ended up getting in on the act.
Our producer played a killer bee once, one of the production guys played Frankenstien, and I played a robber one night. The gal that hosted Misty Brew was really funny. Some of the out takes were even funnier than some of the stuff we put on air. We had a lot of fun poking fun at the movies and current events. And here's a little known fact.
The Pig head that was hanging on the set wall was real, the producer got it from a local butcher shop. We didn't have a telepromoter so we had to write out the scripts on cue cards and roll them underneath the cameras. I hope this helps out. Illustrations include a promotional card, screen grabs, a sales proposal for the show, and a current picture of Catherine Brewton.

From his secluded location in east central Ohio, the Mortician, far from prying eyes, has his way with the vast array of human carnage from the violence most watch on many a dark scary night. The nameless remains from the death swirls of mayhem these movies provide have no family, no friends and are the leftovers no one thinks of. The Mortician thinks of them plenty while preparing them for the dark cold earth.
They find peace on The Morticians blood caked slab. They are welcomed to eternity during this last encounter The standard time slot is Saturday at ET pm , with up to three other showings at various times during the week. The Mortician is a supporting character in the world of these horrorists. He disposes of all the not-so-nice leftovers of the movies shown by various hosts across the nation. It's grisly work but someone has to do it, so why not someone that enjoys it greatly?
Hyde Mike describes his efforts to promote his character Mr. Darc on a short-lived cable access show called Darc of the Night in Orlando, Florida in Darc, cited above: In I determined to do something about my longtime dream of being a movie host. I conceived of a brown-cloaked, slouch-hatted figure who wore a featureless black mask. I tricked around with different names such as Shayde and Mr.
Midnight before settling on MR. Some of my my co-workers at "Terror on Church Street," an Orlando haunted attraction had experience in video production, and agreed to help me in the creation of my show. Five of us agreed to be the production team; we each put up money to rent camera and lights, our boss agreed to allow us to shoot on the sets at the attraction, I wrote the script, and off we went.
One of our team had friends at our local cable operator and was able to make a deal for editing time as well as securing us a movie we ran Plan 9 from Outer Space , god help us. Jump ahead to shooting day: normal television production allows that one might shoot pages of script in a day. We did Now it is October, ; the cable company has agreed to broadcast our pilot on three successive Friday nights, cool.
They do the run, get very good reaction from viewers, and we got to series, right? They are public-access, you see, and can't sell ad time. Now, if we do more shows, they'll be happy to run us, but somebody has to pay for the production and it won't be them, sigh. Well, we seek out a small broadcast station in the area who loves the show, and wants to do it. If we sell the ad time, sign. Armed with a letter of intent, we approach local comic shops, pizza places, amusement centers and show our promo reel, which is very sharp, thank you, and the consensus is quick and to the point They like the show, but the station is too small to do them any good to advertise on.

Ads, pics, and interviews with Dick Flanigan and John Sveum! NOTES: Eric Browning first reported Lenny's Inferno , named for the sponsor, and said the host was "a guy in ghoul makeup with a crushed stovepipe hat and a baby doll with stitches and black eyes.
Brad Ringlien identified the host by name and provided lots of details: As a teen growing up in Madison, Wisc, I was an addict of the late night horror flicks. So here is some more information on Lenny's Inferno. The show was originally called Ferdie's Inferno. It was hosted by "Mr. Mephisto" played by Dick Flanigan. He had a white face with a jet black goatee. He sat behind a dilapidated desk. On the desk was a little black box with a Iron Cross medallion hanging off it.
Inside the box was Mr. The Voice had a high tinny sound and referred to the host as "Creepy Guy. Mephisto would break into the movie times and pitch appliances and the latest store gimmicks such as giving away waterbeds and bicycles. Mephisto kept pointing out that Crazy TV Lenny was "insane" because of all the great deals he was making on stereo components. Other characters on the show were "Valdimer," a tall guy dressed in black who just stood still the whole show brandishing a large axe.
Mephisto would hurl insults at poor Valdimer all during the show. Finally Valdimer would usually break apart the desk in anger. Many times, they would destroy Television sets or refrigerators at the end of the show. That was definitely worth staying awake for!! I lost track of the show when I graduated from The University of Wisconsin in ' I think I may even have a cassette tape of some of the shows from around ' Darrin Buchholtz provided more details: I was surprised to actually find a listing for Mr.
Mephisto on your website. I was in 7th grade around when I was watching Lenny's Inferno every Friday night at midnight. There were times my brother and I would record the show on our cassette recorders. If we didn't doze off before midnight I only remember Lenny's Inferno. I wasn't familiar with Ferdie's Inferno.
What I remember about the show: I remember the inside of the castle as a painted stone wall all behind Mr. Mephisto's desk, except for a big "M" on a banner. Some of the characters would also refer to him as "The Big M. I also remember a couple other episodes where his pet, the Moat Beast, was in. You never got to see it, but you sure did hear it, especially when Mephisto would somehow fall into the Moat and get attacked by it. There was a period that they used fire extinguishers quite frequently on Mephisto for a laugh. Besides doing the voice in the box, Jay would be off camera giving Mephisto a hard time, constantly getting him in trouble.
The opening of the show was always the cool part. They showed a painting of a castle on a hill and would slowly zoom in on it like you were walking up to it while "Night on Bald Mountain" played in the background. It aired after the last run of horror movies and before they started showing Boris Karloff's Thriller. This show was part of the reason I got into the classic horror movies as a kid, and now as an adult. No help there. I also tried American TV, the sponsor of the show, with no luck. The tapes seemed to mysteriously disappear.
I do have some cassette recordings. Too bad we didn't get a VCR until well after the show was off the air. E-gorespondent C. Ellefson remembers Mr. Mephisto's sidekick: The talking box voice for Mr. Mephisto was one of my dad's friends. You have him listed as Jay Stevens, which was an alias. His real name is John Sveum note the initials , and he still does a lot of commercials and voiceovers here in this area. I don't know if he would care about his real name being listed or not, but you may want to include the information that it is an alias. My dad says he thinks John would think it was a hoot anyone remembered him!
He terrified us as children by the way, even though he is really nice. We didn't want the voice from the box coming over, ever!.
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania ? I am extremely sorry to inform everyone that johnny is no longer with us. He committed suicide on tuesday morning at about 8 am. I realize that some of you may have already got the news, I just figured it might be a bit easier to send this to all his contacts in one shot. This is an extremely difficult time for me and everyone involved, so I appreciate if you could keep us in your prayers.
Gortem Shreek resides in his family's home of 6 generations. The Shreeks were outcasts, and people feared them for their gothic look and strange practices. Gortem was raised by his grandfather, a black magician, who taught him to summon flame. He lives alone, seeing no one! He studies horror and film to fill his days, and watches classic horror to fill the nights. Black Sky Cinema is the only contact he has with the world! He lives by his own laws, and they are not man's laws.
His vast family fortune is a deep secret, and Gortem Shreek trusts nobody! He does have a sense of humor, though it's a "sick sense. NWCT public access, in the n. I DID!! John Hanson's passing was a terrible shock and painful loss to the Horror Host Underground HHU movement, and to horror host fans in general. I, E-gor, never met John but I had the pleasure of exchanging occasional e-mails with him. In , when I revamped this site and made one of several major attempts to update it with the latest information about new hosts and developments in the HHU, I wrote to "Gortem Shreek" requesting feedback about his new entry.
He responded immediately and enthusiastically, and was kind and generous enough to include me on the long list of fans to whom he sent free videos and DVDs of his show, which I found very original and entertaining. John knew and cared a lot about horror hosting and the movies on his show, as the following excerpts from his e-mail to me show: The new site is awesome!
You're the "Horrorhost Historian" of all time. Your site was the 1st website i ever went to! I thank you for adding me to this esteemed group I was in a Yahoo group called Lugosiphilia. There were 3 friends of Lugosi in the Lugosiphilia group, great stuff for a Bela fan! I also made a contribution of research to Frank Dello Stritto for his book about Lugosi. He is in Hollywood,and has a awesome resume in acting Murphy Brown , performed at Marilyn Manson's 30th b-day, voice overs galore.
I told him to go to you for a spot on your site, and he's looking for some vintage host material. He's a great guy, been chatting for a couple weeks now. Well, after 2 months of insanity, i finished my one year anniversary shows, 4 hours, 2 shows. My Halloween show,with 10 zany, ghoulish characters, and 3 new shows on top of that. They went out media-mail today. So sorry for the loooooong delay, i usually get them out in 2 weeks, but Halloween kept me too busy to buy mailers, and blank tapes, and make copies of the shows.
I've sent out shows in one year, and have always got them out to those who request them. Thx folks!! When I wrote him about finding new information about the pioneering Pittsburgh host, Sir Rodger : Cool I never heard of him. I hope you get a response from Count Scary, he is old school. Keep up the horror host history The photos are a nice added touch too! Shreek Thanks for caring and sharing, John. You'll be missed. Slime preceded DR.
E-gorespondent David Allen initiated this entry with the following note: Just reading your list of horror hosts while dredging up memories from my teen years. While I have absolutely no recollection of that series, there was a show on a few years before that, called Slime Theatre. The host was a fellow named Howard Meagle who had no "horror" schtick, but he used to make MST3K-like comments during the host segments. He was on the show for a year or so. He was replaced by "Dr. Sludge," and then "The Bowman Body. The show ran Saturday nights at And now, through the miracle of the Internet, we hear from Mr.
Slime himself, Howard Meagle! It seems he had been searching around the web looking for family members, and he came across your site. He showed me your web page, and sure thing there was a listing for Slime Theatre. Talk about a time warp! I was further interested to read Mr. Allen's recollection of what happened to me. And if I may, I would like to set the record straight for those who care about such things.
Bill directed the station early and late newscasts. I worked for Bill in the evenings after my radio shift. One of my first jobs was to edit commercial breaks into movies. I had grown up in Wheeling, WV, about 50 miles south of Pittsburgh. We watched Bill Cardille on Channel Bill did his show "straight". He let his visitors and guests do all the weird stuff. Like most all teenagers at the time we thought Bill was cool. Charlottesville is a college town University of Virginia.
I was uncomfortable dressing up like the Bowman Body, so we decided that I would do it straight like "Chilly Billy". The theme song came from a Frank Zappa tune, "I am the Slime". Hence the title "Slime Theatre. By the way, we were "sliming" people long before Nickelodeon. Bill Bowman was instrumental in helping us make the show popular. The "Bowman Body" made many appearances on the show. Bill eventually returned to Richmond to work for Educational TV. I was then promoted to the position of Program Director replacing Bill, and I continued doing "Slime Theatre" for about 2 more years I was offered a job at another TV station in After I left, the person who had been directing "Slime Theatre" assumed the position of host.
His name was Pat Bauley He called himself "Dr. I have lost touch with my old friend Bill Bowman. But I know if I were to talk to him today and ask him "Bill, How's it going?
