Interlude: Piecing It All Together

Faithful reader Bill (who watched Horror Incorporated from Apple Valley back in the day, and currently resides in Elk River) wrote to let us know that he used to record the show on his cassette recorder as a kid.  And as if this weren't awesome enough:

I found a few of the tapes in my garage. I see you are at 1972 currently on your blog and these may be from that year. I would have been 9! As you can see, there are tapes from Ghost of Frankenstein, Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man, King Kong, Deadly Mantis, Giant Claw and Dracula. Now I need to locate my cassette player!

Isn't Bill great? He promises to forward whatever audio he recovers from the tapes.  This is particularly exciting for me, because with enough uninterrupted audio, we can piece together the original clock, and locate some of the ads that were broadcast with the show.  With luck, we'll be able to reconstruct an entire episode of the show from beginning to end. I promise to post that on the site if and when that happens.

In the meantime, if you have any material from the show -- audio, video, printed material -- send it my way and I'll post it here.

If Chilly Billy can do ten volumes, you can too, it's a labor of love. Wishing you success.
