Creatures of the Night That We Loved So Well: TV Horror Hosts of Southern California – Second Edition



This Second Edition offers so much more – More of Southern California’s historic horror hosts – Including a newly discovered undocumented horror host, over 20 full scripts, more photos along with more newspaper press releases and articles – 550 pages of Southern California horror host history and all in a larger format. Jeepers Creepers Theatre in 1962 ignited a love of horror hosts that was the beginning of a life-long addiction for the author and many fans. But as much as the audience loved the shows, they never knew the horror that occurred off-screen — live adult stage performances, lawsuits and cutthroat competition. What started off as risqué and sexy by 1954 standards ended as risqué and sexy by 1984 standards. Horror hosts affected 30 years of Southern California television history… a phenomenon that is not known by today’s generation but well remembered by the “Baby Boomers” and now chronicled for future generations. Inside this Second Edition, you will find over 300 images, many never published before -studio and behind the scenes photos, TV Guide ads, movie listings by date, scans of full scripts, interviews with the hosts and writers and identities of the hosts revealed for the first time. Many you’ve seen on other TV series and movies and didn’t even know.
