A Quick Note Re: Anniversaries

Posted on by

I just wanted to mention a couple important anniversaries- today, April 2nd, marks the anniversary of our program going national on MeTV. It’s been eight years now, and the show continues to grow in popularity. Thank you all so much for your support.

Also- Monday was the 60th anniversary of the release of our friend Freddy “Boom Boom” Cannon’s first big hit- “Tallahassee Lassie”! Freddy has been such a good friend to us- 60 years in rock and roll and still going strong. You’ll be able to see some special live in concert footage we shot with Freddy- and me making a cameo appearance onstage with him- this Saturday night during “House of Dracula”!

I've seen the show over the years but it wasn't until my sister-in-law said how much she loved the show and my hubby and I sat down and watched the show one night. We laughed so much at Sven's jokes and commercials that we were hooked ! Thats was five years ago ! I started commenting on here probably about 3 years ago by now.

I love all the shows and look forward to seeing all your jokes Sven , and Doug's wonderful piano/trumpet playing. The review song is my favorite part ! May you guys play on for another 40 years ! 🤗🤗

Freddy Cannon - Congratulations on 60+ years in the music business, that takes a rare talent.
Rich Koz - How great it is for you (and your fans far and wide) to celebrate 8 years being broadcast nationally. A toast to many, many more!

Like my Fellow Blogger Dale Uhlmann below - I discovered you and your show while changing the channels and seeing a very sharp quality 1950s Universal SCI-FI epic. Then stayed around long enough to catch one of your bits at the break.

Congratulations Sven/Rich. Thanks for giving us a great show to watch and for providing a blog where I've met a lot of Great People!

Congrats on the eight year anniversary, Sven/Rich. I think I've been a member for a little over half of your tenure on Metv. We had decided to "cut the cord" because we didn't like the expense of satellite service when we really only watched a pittance of the programming. My concern was my mom losing her primary source of programming which provided all the old westerns. I was beyond delighted to discover Metv had almost all of them wafting over the free airwaves. I saw Svengoolie advertised and checked it out. I started watching just in time to see some Hammer films I had never seen, and got to see Brides of Dracula, which I had always wanted to see. I found the blog soon after, and I'm still happily hanging around.
I hope that you get one of these Emmy lifetime achievement awards, as you certainly deserve one for your contribution to the entertainment industry.

Happy 8th Anniversary to the national audience. Having spent the 1st fifty years of my life in the suburbs of Chicago, I have been a fan since the Son Of Svengoolie years. Keep up the good work.

i will admit, for the first year, as soon as star trek was over, i would go to bed. then one day, a movie i wanted to see was on, so watched, and was hooked.

Similarly, one Saturday night in early September of 2011, I came across one of my favorite classic horror movies, WEREWOLF OF LONDON. Then I discovered that there was a host between movie breaks whom I recognized as Rich Koz, the former Son of Svengoolie, whom I'd read about in Elena Watson's book on TV horror movie hosts. Like you, I was instantly hooked, and I've been a loyal viewer ever since.

We had a thunder storm

I came across a very long strange worm
🐛as I was cleaning
out weeds 👩‍🌾

Looking better now

Have a nice day 💝
