The first time I ever heard the novelty song ‘Dinner with Drac’ it was on an excellent Peter Pan Monster Mash LP, it also happened to be a version done by John Logan.

Years later, I would learn that the original singer for this wonderful ditty was none other than TV horror host, the one and only cool ghoul known as Zacherley! It turns out that John Zacherle was good friends and sometimes fill-in host for Dick Clark on road tours for American Bandstand, their friendship would lead to Clark helping Zacherle record and produce ‘Dinner with Drac’ in 1958.
