Horror Host Zacherley’s 1967 Halloween Dance Party Show Is WILD
Zacherley The Cool Ghoul (aka John Zacherle, born in 1918 and still alive!!!) hosted late night Chiller Theater broadcasts of classic horror movies in New York and Philadelphia in the ’50s and ’60s. His monster schtick followed him around to his next job too, hosting a teen dance party show called Disk-O-Teen in Newark. Here he is, drumming up some excitement for the Box Tops, featuring Alex Chilton. This clip is awkward, great, uncomfortable and oddly perfect. Hope you enjoy it.
