June 16, 2024 — B-Movie Guru Brian Walker The Paracast — The Gold Standard of Paranormal Radio

    • News

Now with better audio and fewer ads: Return with us now to those thrilling days of yesteryear as Gene and cohost Tim Swartz welcome back Brian Walker, the creator and webmaster of Brian’s Drive-In Theater, where he’s been keeping memories of drive-in films and their stars alive since February 1, 1998. On the agenda: low budget (B-movie) fare, particularly serials featuring super heroes and other popular characters. He also talks about the sad histories of some of the stars that never quite realized their full potential, and others, such as George Reeves (“Adventures of Superman”), whose lives ended tragically. Brian’s love of films began in childhood with his first Super 8mm projector given to him by his grandmother who also bought him his first film, a four-minute excerpt of a W.C. Fields comedy. Over the last 50 years, he has assembled a film collection from such genres as horror and science fiction, comedy, and action. Currently calling Morgantown, West Virginia home, Brian is fortunate to live in proximity of a number of still-operating drive-in theaters in the southwestern Pennsylvania area and loves taking his convertible to the drive-in during the warm summer months.
