This evening, with heavy heart I bring you an hour of the Ladies of Norton Records.

Hear dear Miriam herself, La La Brooks, Althea & The Memories, Ruby Johnson and so many more - lotsa platter, little chatter so make sure you check out the live accu-playlist to see what's playing. It's all here at Tonight let's raise a glass to Billy, and to Miriam, as she forges along with Norton Records.

Billy Miller on Fool's Paradise with Rex 2008: Charlie Feathers Special

Here's Billy guesting on Fool's Paradise from 2008 promoting the 3 Charlie Feathers LP's that had just come out at the time. Great show. Billy's in top form talking about Charlie. My fave bit is when Billy says (paraphrasing here); "there's more to rockabilly than putting flames on your upright bass!"

We Love you Billy

I asked Debbie D if it was OK to post some WFMU shows that I have in my archive of Billy's appearances over the years.  She said yes, so here's a great one from Fool's Paradise with Rex. Billy and Lenny Kaye drop by the fur lined fall out shelter with a bunch of great Fortune Records sides. It's a great show, with great music and stories from all involved. From 2005.

R.I.P. John Zacherle, "The Cool Ghoul"

The great John Zacherle, known to generations of horror fans as Zacherley, "The Cool Ghoul," has passed away at 98. The news came tonight as author Tom Weaver, a close friend of the Zacherle family, began informing colleagues of the the sad news, and an outpouring of tributes has already begun across the internet. 

A veteran of World War II, Zacherle started working at WCAU in Philadelphia in 1954, and in 1957, he got the job of being Philly's first late night horror movie host on Shock Theater, creating the character of Roland (pronounced Ro-LAND), who talked to his dead wife in her coffin. An association with Dick Clark, whose American Bandstand was based in Philadelphia, led to the recording of "Dinner With Drac" in 1958. He moved to New York's WABC in '59, became known as Zacherley and his show was renamed Zacherley At Large. He later hosted the Newark teenage dance show Disc-O-Teen, and was a DJ on WNEW and then WPLJ, where he stayed for ten years. 

Considered by many to be the greatest TV horror host of all-time, Zacherele has spent the last several decades appearing on TV, radio, and film and making personal appearances at conventions and special events. 

His horror-themed novelty records have remained perennial Halloween favorites, and you will surely hear them played on WFMU and elsewhere over the course of the next week. So, instead of posting those, I've decided to share the REAL DEAL, actual episodes of Shock Theater and Zacherley at Large as they were originally broadcast in the late 1950s. What we have here are three classic poverty row horrors: two Bela Lugosi features - The Devil Bat and Bowery At Midnight, and Rondo Hatton as The Creeper in The Brute Man. This is how original Monster Kids in the Northeast first saw these movies, and I'd recommend taking them all in for a great Halloween triple feature this weekend, just make sure you raise a glass of blood in honor of the Cool Ghoul himself before you're done.  He gave his all!

The Girls of Barry Records

The Barry Records Label was a shadow imprint label from Toronto, Ontario issuing records from other labels in the US and a handful from the UK - and even had a few of it's own original releases. Labels like Barry made it affordable to buy and to find what would have essentially been import records - and it also created a way for other labels to get their records on local radio stations. I grew up listening to 1050 Chum they played tons of girl group stuff and were really dialed into the teen set. I even uploaded a few of their jingles! Here's a good one! and then here is another fun jingle! Today I play girls issued on the Barry Records label, the girls that first got me so interested in girl groups! Listen here at 7pm Eastern, 4 Pacific or 5 Central!
