The Howling Man - Saturday Frights Podcast - Episode 067

Saturday Frights Podcast Ep. 67 (The Howling Man)

Back by popular demand…maybe? We have a brand new episode of the Saturday Frights Podcast. This time the Projectionist and myself discuss The Howling Man. Truly one of the best episodes of the legendary Twilight Zone television series. Of course one of those reasons is it was written by Charles Beaumont. Adapted from the short story by Beaumont also entitled The Howling Man.

Certainly in this episode we give a full synopsis of The Howling Man. Touching upon not just the talented writer that Charles Beaumont was. But in addition we discuss the very talented crew that was featured in the 1960 episode. Such as H.M. Wynant, Robin Hughes, as well as John Carradine.

A brief synopsis of the story. An American, who shortly after World War I is on a walking tour of Europe. While traveling he becomes lost and finds himself seeking shelter in a hermitage. Which I might add appears to house a pitiful individual…The Howling Man.

As always I hope you will enjoy the podcast. The Projectionist and myself realize it has been a few months since we last had an episode. As always though, we do our best to entertain. I hope you will indeed be kind enough to share your own memories of this Twilight Zone episode in the comments section.

If you have any suggestions for topics you would like for us to cover in a future special. Or possibly you have comments on the current show, email them to me at VicSage@Retroist.com. You can also contact me on Twitter and on Facebook. In addition I certainly hope you will take the time to visit the Saturday Frights Facebook Page. There you can find posts from Rockford Jay, Preston Griffith and myself on a daily basis.

The theme used at the beginning as well as ending of this episode was provided by Peachy, if you have musical needs why not contact him at peachy@Retroist.Com. And be sure to “like” him on his Facebook page. Before of course he steps over in the Twilight Zone!

Saturday Frights Podcast Ep. 63 (Concession Stand)

Hello, friends. While this was intended to be a Saturday Frights Podcast episode discussing Night of the Meek. As I could certainly not think of a better Twilight Zone episode than that one. A drunken shopping mall Santa played by Art Carney who is saved at his time of need. All thanks to a little gift, a sign of the compassion one can find in The Twilight Zone.

As I just stated. That was my original intent. However, Life finds away of changing plans. Of snapping your attention to things you didn’t realize. Such a thing happened to me today. Due to overworking I had inadvertently hurt the feelings of a loved one. All is good, friends. My personal story doesn’t have an unhappy ending or anything like that.

This isn’t the end of my contributing to The Retroist. It is however the end of the Saturday Frights Podcast as well as the Diary of an Arcade Employee, Projectionist’s Sinister Tales of Terror and Retro Radio Memories podcasts.

So I felt I should record a little something. A thank you as a matter of fact and a little reason as to why I am ceasing producing those shows. As an aside I will be continuing the Facebook pages for both Saturday Frights and the Diary. As there is a wonderful community that has been built up there.

Happy Holidays and thank you.

I want to thank Metagirl for her wonderful help with the intro to the show of late. As well as to Tony Longworth and of course to Peachy for their fantastic music. I also need to thank Daniel XIII for his sage advice. Of course I cannot thank the Retroist himself enough – for always being there to help guide the show and for being such a friend.
