You can also find the audio version of Fowl Players Radio on most Podcast Platforms- please follow us and give us a fair, honest review!When I was a boy back in the mid-1970's, my grandparents used to take my aunt and I to Assateague Island every summer for a week or two for vacation. It was a long, hot ride down Route 50, much of which at the time was only two lanes. To keep me from being a typical kid and barraging my grandparents with "Are we there yet? Are we there yet?" my grandparents used to stop at the store and get me comic books to read in the car to keep me occupied. These comics were Superboy, Superman, and Archie and Little Archie. Recently, I met Paul Castiglia, who is a comic book writer and editor known for his work for Archie Comics, Archie's Weird Mysteries, Archie Americana Series, Little Archie, Looney Tunes Magazine, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Tex Avery Comics, the DC Comics series Showcase, Sonic The Hedgehog, Cracked Magazine, and others.We had a great talk about those comic books, as well as some interesting facts behind the song "Sugar Sugar", the twangy typical 60's rock and roll piped into sitcoms whenever there's and episode when one of the characters puts together a band (think Opie on Andy Griffith or Chip on "My Three Sons" or "The Mosquitoes" on Gilligan's Island) , "Sea Monkeys" and the gimmicky rip-off offers in the back of comic books, and disturbing puppets from children's television shows.Here is the link to his blog-scaredsillybypaulcastiglia.blogspot.comPaul's IMDb Page- Wikipedia Page- link to Paul's Recent Appearance on the Laurel and Hardy Podcast Fowl Players of Perryville will be returning to the Western Maryland Scenic Railroad on August 13, September 10, October 8, and October 29. for more information, please see www.wmsr.com or www.fowlplayersofperryville.com.#michaelspedden #fowlplayersradio #paulcastiglia #archiecomics #littlearchie #achiesweirdmysteries #cracked #crackedmagazine #scaredsilly #sonicthehedgehog #teenagemutantninjaturtles #fowlplayersofperryville #wmsr #westernmarylandscenicrailroad

Season 9 Episode 5-Dick Dyszel- WDCA's "Captain 20", Horror Host "Count Gore De Vol"
NOW AVAILABLE ON FOWL PLAYERS RADIO!!! www.fowlplayersradio.com a child, I had fond memories of getting out of Nursery School and Kindergarten and heading home to play and watch television with my friends. One of the shows we would love to watch was on Washington DC's "WDCA 20", "Captain 20" starring Dick Dyszel. He would have hamster races, chimp races, and show cartoons and shows that we loved, such as "Bugs Bunny", "Ultra Man", "Johnny Sokko's Flying Robot", "Marine Boy", "Speed Racer", "Kimba The White Lion", and so many more.  Not only does Dick tell us about his time as Captain 20,  but he was also "Bozo The Clown" and still appears as horror host "Count Gore De Vol". He has fascinating stories about his career which spans several decades and some of the folks (and chimps) he has worked with. This was a fun episode to put together, and I think you'll have fun listening. My fellow Fowl Player Alfred Guy co-hosted with me, and they talked about some of the charity work they do with "Scares That Care".www.dickdyszel.comwww.scaresthatcare.orgDick Dyszel on IMDb: Fowl Players of Perryville are now booking shows for 2022!
