Shock Theatre

Shock Theatre was a very popular late night weekend show on WGHP channel 8 during the sixties and seventies. The show began as Friday night show when WGHP went on the air in October 1963. It became a Saturday night fixture around 1967 about a year after Dick Bennick became the host as Count Shockula. Dick Bennick later changed his character to Dr. Paul Bearer. I will be covering Dick Bennick's many different shows at WGHP later. The ad is from 1964.
