Good job with the podcast! Despite my presence on it, it still came off great! Good luck with future episodes.

I think Rich made some excellent points in the "Fade to Black" segment. An old red barn is still red when it's old - well, maybe flaky paint red, but still red:) I think haunters do tend to gravitate to the grays and blacks when it comes to "oops" paint. Just habit, I guess.

There was some nice music in the podcast and a few theme songs that were like a trip down Memory Lane.

One burning question, because I see this in other podcasts as well - is there a reason for the 90 minute length? I popped on a pair of headphones and listened to it while doing other computer work, but that meant I wasn't giving it my full attention (expect for Rich's part, of course:)) Somehow that kind of defeats the purpose of having people share their hard-earned knowledge.

Other than that, I think you did a great job with interspersing talkie parts with music (that wasn't head-banger), and it was well-paced.

I think you mean a trip down Mockingbird Lane, Roxy. :P

I, too, appreciated the music choices. Looking forward to seeing the show grow and improve!

I appreciate all the comments! We all worked very hard at providing a great show so my hats off to my team. I do hope the show grows and we will continue to try and improve it each and every time. For those who did listen please feel free to email me at for a chance to win one of three Fright Radio prize packs that I will raffle off in the October show. To answer your question about the length of the show Roxy, it's just how it shakes out with each segment plus the music, put it all together and you have an hour plus show which I hope people will enjoy since you can listen to it a little at a time or all at once in one sitting. It's always great while building props! I hope everyone continues to enjoy and please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions, comments or just to say hello!
