On today’s edition of “The Freak Power Ticket” (April 13th), producer/host Ted Coe returns with the third in a series of radio programs exploring the history of Vampires in Popular Culture.

This hourlong special will focus on influential works reflecting:

• the early days of the AIDS epidemic and its corresponding blood panic;

• Reagan/Thatcher-era consumer capitalism;

• and a time of “Dead Teenager Movies” and “Neon Noir.”

Tune in to hear the blood-curdling, synthesizer-heavy sounds of the cult-satire Liquid Sky, plus musical artists Bauhaus, Brad Fiedel, Tangerine Dream, and Jonathan Elias, along with Nouvelle Vague, Henry Mancini, film trailers, commentary, and more.
