Count Macabre Song
Count Macabre was a horror host on WBRZ-TV, Channel 2 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana in the 1960s. Alongside a skull named Erik, he hosted movies on a self titled show and later had a talk show entitled The Wednesday Show.
During his time on TV, a band called Connoissurs made a 45 RPM record called Count Macabre in tribute to him.

The vocalist is Frankie Radosta, a Baton Rouge native. He was 20 years old when the song was recorded at the TV studio.I had the pleasure to be there with him.
I was working with Frankie in a band called The DynaTones at the time that he recorded "Count Macabre" around 1963.
He went on to form a great band called Buffalo in the late 60's.
Frankie died in a speed boat racing accident in 1974 on False River.
I miss my friend still and had not heard his voice since 1973 until today.
