BOBBY Tells Horrors of Halloween Radio Woe

A tale from the dark side of KLW, plus a razor blade in your apple.

Signal Hill, Brooklyn is not only designated as one of the country's most toxic Superfund sites, it's also certified haunted by The Atlantic Paranormal Project (TAPP.) Just ask the KILLERWATT's resident announcer, Bobby ROBERTO. He's got spine chilling tales of late-night radio station weirdness -- you'll hear one tonight -- plus a bonus spin of "The War of the Worlds," by The Mercury Theatre on the Air, originally broadcast October 30, 1938. So, radio on, lights out.

FATS Flaunts Sacrilege from Shinnecock

Marking twenty sterling programs for KILLERWATT, Fats shows no sign of fatigue.

Tonight hear the Professor's twentieth sterling program for KILLERWATT. Details of his contractual duration with Conflamed Media Global (CMG), parent company of KLW, remain shrouded in secrecy. Radio fanatics wanna know ... how many more shows can we expect from the Great One?

Our sources say Retro SCOTTSO and CMG CEO Howard Rashmusher were seen on eastern Long Island's Shinnecock Hills golf club...not hitting the links -- they were at the bar. Good sign. We think Fats'll be broadcasting from Signal Hill, Brooklyn indefinitely.
