Dark Shadows

Ron Barry Radio Interviews

While home sick one day back in the late 1960's, W.E.S.T. radio disc jockey Ron Barry happened to catch an episode of Dark Shadows on T.V. He immediately fell in love with the show, and eventually ventured down to the studios in New York City to meet the players and watch tapings of the show.

Over the course of the next couple of years or so, Mr. Barry conducted a series of interviews with members of the cast, both, in the W.E.S.T. studios, as well as via the telephone. He interviewed Jonathan Frid on four separate occasions, with the third interview also including fellow cast members; Grayson Hall, Humbert Allen Astredo, Robert Rodan, Roger Davis, and Don Briscoe. Candid audio from this time period is so rare, making these interviews that much more interesting to listen to. To hear Grayson laugh in a relaxed non-acting environment is delightful, and Humbert interjects with his quick witted comments as well.
Mr. Barry also had occasion to interview Thayer David for W.E.S.T. during the early run of the 1897 episodes. It is wonderful to hear a candid Mr. David doing the voices of the various characters he had played to that point, and describing how he went about creating the different voices and accents.
Finally, this Double CD concludes with Bonus Tracks that contain the very rare radio spots for the theatrical films; House of Dark Shadows & Night of Dark Shadows. There are six of these spots for House and five for Night.

All the material on this DOUBLE CD has been "remastered" from audio tapes, to provide the best possible sound quality of these 30 year old interviews.
