Mr. Hyde & Monster Bop




That Dick Smith is really something, isn't he? This make-up made the cover of Famous Monsters Of Filmland!
Monster Bop is an essential(for the most part)compilation of 50s & 60s horror-themed records that just happens to feature "Jekyll & Hyde" by Jim Burgett...and yes, the cover is a rip-off of a Frankie Stein lp cover!
Tomorrow - the New Frankenstein's Monster!

Hmmm... if I don't trim my beard for a couple of days it ends up looking like Mr. Hyde's all by itself. Guess I know what I can go as this year.


Happy Hauntings!

prof. grewbeard,
I would like you to check out this website called spellbound it features
music played on the theremin whats a theremin you ask?A theremin is a electronic invention by:Leon Theremin's patent application for the theremin, described as "Method of and Apparatus for the Generation of Sounds", filed December 5, 1925, granted February 28, 1928. 17 pages with text description and circuit diagrams. Obtained from the U. S. Patent Office's Full Text and Image Database, converted from TIFF graphic format to Adobe Acrobat for your amusement. This is what the beach boys palyed in the background of good vibrations.
This is what you hears in most of the 1060's space Sci Fi movies like in The Day the Earth Stood Still just to name one that most people hear this played in.
The site has podcast to play or down load from past weekly online shows over at purple notes Radio
