It was a night in 1971, when a spooky figure by the name of M.T. Graves debuted on a local station in  Paducah , Kentucky.  It was a day that would live in Horror Host History because from that humble beginning, one of the most iconic Horror Hosts of all  sprang forth. Moving to the Washington D.C. area, the character went through a transformation and Count Gore De Vol was born.  Gore de Vol became the Washington/Baltimore area's longest-running horror host, with a Saturday night show that ran on WDCA from March 1973 to May 1987. His show was the first in Washington television history to be broadcast in stereo and was the first program of it's kind to air the full unedited version of the film "Night of the Living Dead." But the that was just the beginning of his long rich legacy. Gore de Vol became the first Horror Host of the Internet and influenced a long line of the current Horror Hosts. We'll be talking to him about that and his long career in the field, which is still going strong to this day.
