Well my friends and fiends, after more than seven years of disseminating Horror Rot ‘n’ Roll and Caustic Film Criticism over the cyberwaves, it’s time to bid farewell to RUE MORGUE RADIO.
But have no fear, we did not go gently into that good night. We raged, raged against the dying of the light with this: a two hour, double whammy FINAL TRANSMISSION!
Hear Tomb Dragomir’s ramblings on David Lynch’s CRAZY CLOWN TIME!
Thrill to the Caustic Critics pontifications on RATLINE starring Emily Haack and Jason Christ, directed by Eric Stanze!
Plus, some final words from Shannon, a last blast of Terror Tunes by Tomb and a supersonic giveaway to end all supersonic giveaways!
So on behalf of everyone at Rue Morgue Radio, I wanna thank all the folks at RUE MORGUE MAGAZINE for making it possible for us to do this show over the last seven plus years, especially Monica and Justin who’ve worked hard behind the scenes every week.
Also, a big thanks to all my former Caustic Critics combatants (there’s been about 16 of them in total), especially Chris Alexander who was as much a part of establishing Rue Morgue Radio as anyone else and the Gore-Met for stepping in to fill a void following his departure.
But most importantly, I wanna thank the loyal fans of RUE MORGUE RADIO who’ve tuned in every week, some from the very beginning. It’s been your support and enthusiasm that has allowed us to remain on the weird wide web all this time. We’d often get letters thanking us for helping some of you get through a long drive, a long day at work or even just an otherwise bleak scenario (I know that in Owen Garth’s case, he likes to put the show on in the background while he preps his victims for the deep freeze).
Those little comments have gone a LONG way to keeping us enthused about doing this. And over the years, we’ve made cyber friends with some of you and met others at the Festival of Fear and it feels like we’ve gotten to know a few of you a little bit.
And of course, to those who voted for us in the Rondo Hatton Horror Awards, we are perpetually in your debt. And I mean that literally because I bribed many of you personally. Don’t worry, I’ll get those cheques out immediately! (Cheques will not be honoured.)
But while RUE MORGUE RADIO may be disintegrating, we’re not vanishing entirely from Cyber Hell. Sir Tomb will be back soon with his own horror music podcast and you can viddy his whacked out, mental shenanigans on TOMB TV.
And even though it’s RUST IN PEACE for the Caustic Critics, Lance and I will continue making the odd appearance on the RUE MORGUE PODCAST.
So no tears please! It’s a waste of good suffering.
Anyway, without any further ado, I present for your slooshying agony, the grand finale to end all grand finales: RUE MORGUE RADIO: FINAL TRANSMISSION.
