Written by Gaz E   
Saturday, 01 November 2014 04:00

URradiothumb2014The Uber Rock Radio Show hit the milestone that was 50 episodes just two days short of October 31st so it was a no-brainer that the ghouls behind the show - Gruesome Gary Lively, Johnny H(ills Have Eyes) and Rob "The Butcher" Watkins - would summon up some evil, spirited music from the depths of Hell....and not only that, but a wicked, uncouth guest star known only by the mysterious handle of "Zoot".....

TCreepthumbH13Tommy Creep's Graveyard Calling label releases horror-themed bands on cassette...and does a frightfully good job in doing so.

kurtdirt86h13thumbWe're almost there; almost ready for our Halloween All-Nighter at the Market Hall Cinema.
