Cold Open: A Reading From The Book Of Strangely Enough!
I read a selection from C. B. Colby’s book, ‘Strangely Enough’. A story titled ‘The Whistle’. Very creepy.
Correction: During my talk about great World Series sixth games, I mentioned that Sports Illustrated online had ranked the 1991 World Series (Twins/Braves) as number 1. It was not Sports Illustrated, it was ESPN online that did the ranking. Here is their number 1 pick.
I pointed out how the graphics of the opening sequence of the show The Six Million Dollar Man incorrectly show the bionics of Steve Austin’s legs. The mechanical parts should go all the way up into his hips, not stop 2/3 up his thigh. I also mentioned that The Bionic Woman’s opening sequence got it right.
You can watch The Six Million Dollar Man open here (it’s in Spanish, that’s the only version I could find) and The Bionic Woman’s here.
Movie Recommendation: The Mummy (1932) Another classic horror movie starring Boris Karloff as the title character. Don’t look for the mummy walking around in its wrappings, you won’t see it. But it is creepy and Karloff underplays the mummy really well. I particular enjoy the flashback sequence showing how the mummy came to be buried alive.
Music heard on the show…
