For this episode we are discussing the 10 year memorial on former cult actress Pat Ast whom wasn't a exactly household name but she was noted for her larger-than-life outrageous roles in films like her supporting role as a run down hotel owner Lydia in Andy Warhol's 1972 flick  Heat and then in the 80's had a 15 minute supporting role as a lesbian bar owner Butch in Club Life and the lead supporting role as a vicious evil jail matron Edna in Reform School Girls which was one of her breakthrough performances along with her off-Broadway show  Women Behind Bars. Many of you may have also spotted her as a nasty school teacher in Motley Crue's 1985 video "Smoking in the Boys Room"

She worked for fashion designer Ray Halston in which she modelled for him in his Madison Avenue store. Plus had many small roles in TV and film throughout the 70's until the late 90's.

Greg Tiderington hosts this special along with people whom were affiliated with Pat like Lypsinka Von Rasputina, Mike Freeman and a fellow who directed her in cabaret shows Justin Ross discussing the type of person she was and her career as an actress.
