“SVENGOOLIE” TO HAUNT THE LAKESHORE TONIGHT!
This edition of “MIDWEST BEAT with Tom Lounges” originally aired on Thursday, October 16th @ 6pmCST
This edition of “MIDWEST BEAT with Tom Lounges” features as its special guest Chicago media veteran RICH KOZ – who as SVENGOOLIE — has been the premiere horror show icon of Chicago since the 1970s.
SVEN is currently found scaring up fun Saturday afternoons in Chicagoland on The U — WCIU-TV and Saturday evenings nationwide on the ME-TV Network when he creeps into America’s living rooms with the most classic of horror films.
Three generations of TV viewers have become fans of this video vampire whose corny jokes, twisted tunes and kooky commentary gets paid off with a sound weekly pelting of rubber chickens. On this program Koz talks about his 36 years in make-up and a top hat, his mentor Gerry G. Bishop, his Halloween plans and being honored with a new permanent exhibit at the Chicago Museum of Broadcasting and having October 31, 2014 proclaimed “Rick Koz/Svengoolie Day” in the state of Illinois.
