Television in the 1950's created a unique cultural phenomenon: a late-night show that played horror movies...aimed at kids!

The Creature Feature show and the Horror Host tradition are kept alive by a new wave of horror hosts. They do their shows by any means necessary, even without any corporate backing.

In this episode, I talk to Horror Host Mister Lobo, whose nationally syndicated show, "Cinema Insomnia" is entering its 16th season.

Join us as we talk about how B-movies "aren't bad movies...they're just misunderstood," and the DIY spirit needed to keep the show going!


Happy listening!
