- Dave Meile initiated this entry with e-mail full of memories:
When I first cajoled my folks into getting cable TV (c.1971 or 1972),
Lincoln Cablevision had a channel (9) that was generally some public access programming
(locally produced shows like puppet shows, news events, etc.), old TV shows and cartoons (Ozzie & Harriet,
Gigantor, Speed Racer, etc.).
On Friday Nights they had a "creature feature" type show hosted by a fellow called "Xerxes"
or however the old Greek mythology name is spelled — pronounced "zerk-seas."
I recall my buddy and I not liking him nearly as much as good ole'
DR. SAN GUINARY (who we knew a little bit),
but I do remember he showed a few flicks we hadn't seen before, such as
The Amazing Transparent Man,
Daughter of Dr. Jekyll
and a weird one:
The Gamma People with Paul Douglas and Eva Bartok.
I don't recall him ever showing any old Universal classics with Karloff, Lugosi, Chaney et al.
Always crummy stuff we had no appreciation for as 11 and 12 year olds.
