Despite Frank’s wails like a bedeviled banshee, “Frank ‘n’ George” will haunt the airwaves with their VI Annual Spooktacular. (It’s even more spooky since we used Roman numerals. Or it’s the Super Bowl.) You’d be amazed how many scary recordings there are out there, and we’re not even talking about the Justin Bieber catalog. For example, one of our subsets this year will be recordings from people you otherwise know as non-singing TV hosts, if you’re old like us, or have a good memory (which would make you old not like us). Yep, Bert Convy and Merv Griffin did novelty records. And what’s more frightening than that? Tune in and find out, but the answer includes everything from Oscar Peterson to PiL.
“Frank ‘n’ George” airs Tuesdays 10 am – 12 noon this fall.
