“When you die and they lay you to rest, you’re gonna go to the place that’s the best.” But long before doing that, be sure to catch this weekend’s show. Our guest will be Norman Greenbaum, who wrote the 1970 mega-hit “Spirit in the Sky.” Vince thinks this song has been used in every single movie ever made. And while he’s not even close, it is remarkable how many movies have featured this particular song. Norman will tell us how he came up with it, what it was like being a superstar in the 60’s and 70’s and what he’s been up to as of late. We’ll also be running 1974’s “Scream of the Wolf.” We have no idea if this film is any good, but it stars Peter Graves and Clint Walker, so it can’t be all that bad. All this and so much more this Saturday night at 10PM PST on KOFY TV20, the YouTube link above, our Roku, AppleTV and FireTV channels and on a howlingly fabulous selection of bracingly good television stations nationwide. Don’t miss it!
One thought on “This weekend on Creature Features:”
The last time I heard Norman Greenbaum was on an interview with Greg Kihn, who was doing a morning DJ gig on KFOX-FM in San Jose. Norman was a cook at that time in the Santa Rosa area. (This was in the late 1990s. Kihn’s DJ career lasted a lot longer than his music career, as Kihn was on KFOX for 18 years. FYI, I once met Kihn while at a Dollar Tree in the mid 2000s, he was buying little bottles of shampoo for a KFOX promotion. Great guy!)
The film itself was one of Dan Curtis’ made for TV monster films of the 1970s. (Curtis is best known for Dark Shadows, Night Stalker, and Trilogy of Terror. Perhaps you could show Trilogy of Terror one of these days, a great film!)
