[Show Notes] #79 Joey Galda: Dream Warrior

I approach everyone I don’t know very well by assuming they don’t like the horror genre. That way when I learn they’re fans of blood and guts it’s a great little surprise. I first met Joey Galda years ago when we did a musical together called I Love You Because. I knew Joey was a theatre guy. So when it came time for the latest Horror Exam and knowing that our theme would be horror musicals, I knew Joey would make for a great contestant. What I didn’t know was that Joey was a huge horror fan, so I immediately booked him for a regular show.

Some people say they’re horror fans and you can assume they’ve seen staples: FridayNightmareTCM, etc. But when a title like Phantasm is dropped – while a “duh” title for us horror geeks, the “regular” people have no idea it exists – little hearts float out of my eyes. Joey told me he recently watched Phantasm, and those little hearts started spewing out of my eyes like the blood out of a victim of The Tall Man’s sphere.
