On the Beat with Wolfman Mac

At the 2011 Motor City Comic Con, I had the pleasure of talking to Wolfman Mac, host of Wolfman Mac's Chiller Drive-In (formerly known as Nightmare SINema).  You can catch Chiller Drive-in every Saturday night at 10 pm on RTV-The Retro Television Network.
According to legend, Wolfman Mac has been around since the 1930's.  He searched for years for "an outlet for his love of B movies and hackneyed acting".  Then one day, he found an abandoned drive-in and met Boney Bob.  To read the rest of the story (and for a ton of more stuff), check out Wolfman Mac's Chiller Drive-In site.
Wolfman Mac has a huge following in the Detroit area, but his fandom stretches across the country, too.  The Chiller Drive-In booth was one of the most popular attractions at the MCCC.  Fans couldn't get enough of Wolfman and his show mates like Torg, Morbid Melvin, Son of Froggy and the rest.
Like last year when I met the Ghoul, I was excited about meeting Wolfman Mac.  He is a throwback to great tv I watched growing up, but he is connected to today's audience.  I could watch shows like this all day long (sometimes I actually do).
Wolfman Mac was kind enough to give me a few minutes of his time for a quick interview.  I really appreciate his time and consideration.  I hope to see him and his crew next year.  Until then, I will continue to enjoy his work online and on tv.

I love the Wolfman. Show is hilarious in the MST-type of way. Been following since he was on local Detroit TV. Glad to see he has a national following.
