Finally the Chicago icon Svengoolie (Rich Koz) is going to be honored for his 40 years of broadcast infamy the City Council of Chicago, not Berwyn will be congratulating him on his most amazing accomplishment. His original set is of course at the Museum of Broadcast Communications in downtown Chicago. This icon has made Halloween and B-grade horror movies cool for generations and is finally getting his due.
It’s a shame that Berwyn did not honor this legend in the same vein as how Oak Park, forgets some of their other famous sons and daughters. It has to be a suburb thing. But Chicago is taking advantage of this slip up and hosting an event at the Museum to honor him on October 26th so if you want to go to something cool before Halloween here you go.
The impeccable Svengoolie is also on MEtv on Saturdays and Sundays hosting B-movies to the delight of his fan base and the occasional viewer. MEtv is also celebrating Svengoolie’s accomplishment by selling 40th anniversary T-shirts on their website.
