Georgia's good to hear you again. Hey, real fun. Fact, my name is Lonnie, and my parents actually got the name from London Chapman. So there's that long. Better than better than Lonnie Anderson. Yeah. Yeah. No, no, no, no, nothing's better than Lonnie Anderson. Well, it would be if that was his name. True. That's true. But I wanted to bring up the the old horror hosts I grew up in the mid west. And I remember in the seventies. We had a gentleman named Dr sanguinary easily come out in a in a bloody Omaha Nebraska. Yeah. Omaha nebraska. Dr sanguinary then after he retired in the eighties. We gotta lady called macabre macabre wonderful very lot lot. Lot of ladies in the eighties after Elvira. I feel like every ever there were a lot of there was another push for for lady horror hosts, including misty brew and a whole bunch of others. But they I spent many teenage nights up late watching macabre. And so I'm sure good bad horror movies wonderful. Thank you for sharing macabre with us. I don't I'm not sure if I've heard of macabre before I like that name. Yeah. It's great. Vincent price. He was a great horror type actor wasn't. He. One of the best room Saint Louis. And he was just that. He was great and Edward Scissorhands as the scientists. Professor, absolutely. He hosted mystery that show on key Bs for years. And of course, so many movies hundreds of mask of the red death fall. The house of us your return of the invisible man, which he carried that movie with his spectacular voice. So many so many so many so many, you know, a a last man on earth. I mean, really Vincent Price was just. Just one of the best horror actors, and what's interesting like a lot of these guys is he thought he was coming to the end of end of his career as an older gentleman. But really that was the beginning of his career, and he gave us he was much more effective as an older actor, then he was as younger thriller with Michael Jackson. Video no money for that. That was a cashless deal there. He did he did the voice for Vincent pry for for the Vincent Price. Did the break down in the middle of the song where he darkness falls across the land of the midnight hour is close at hand reaches crawl in search of blood the terrorize your neighborhood. He did that whole spray down in the middle. And they used it in the Michael Jackson song. And then as as his payment. He got a giant life sized painting of Michael Jackson in his you know, regalia, and it didn't they give him a choice to see if he wanted a little commission of the total take. Elected not to take it. When I heard from David Delvalle is he did it as a favor, and and he got a painting as a as a as a bonus. And and then his his wife is like we got to get rid of this painting. And and and Winston prices like, oh, no, no. So they just had a giant painting of Vincent Price in their house somewhere and he worked right up until he died the knee. Oh, yeah. Absolutely. I think Edward Scissorhands was his last, and I think he worked right up until he died he loved to work. And I think that you know, if you can spend your whole life doing something that you love, and and people appreciate why not wasn't he in the original house on the haunted hill. Oh, yeah. Absolutely. He was he was the mastermind, and you know, he invited everyone to the house on haunted hill and promptly got them all drunk and gave them guns because that's what you do. When you've got ghosts. Next up. Let's go to Johnny in Augusta Georgia before the break. Welcome to the show, Johnny go ahead. Yes. Hey, this is Johnny in Augusta. Good to talk to you, George. You too, sir. Yeah.
