Davisville, 10/13/14: Films for October with critic Derrick Bang

Face in the nightDavis movie reviewer Derrick Bang (the Davis Enterprise, Derrick Bang on Film) returns to the show this week to list some good movies to watch for Halloween. He offers suggestions in three categories—classics that aren’t widely known, horror, and “vicarious glop.” We also learn that the holiday when the original Dracula debuted wasn’t Halloween, like you might expect—it was Valentine’s Day. Douse the lights and tune in.

That's Life

Sometimes interviews with local folks. It might be about work, or life choices, or philosophy, or history. Sometimes birding, or art, or other passions. Or about local activities, groups, or events.  It's rarely about politics, and it never includes shouting! When there's no guest, it's laid-back music.  Oldies or Hawaiian or Mom's 1940s songs--whatever feels right that day.
