    Hey Jim,

    Nice episode.
    Thanks again for all the GREAT OTR!
    Apparently it is Night Beat, if you google Night Beat under images you’ll find a picture of a 45, two words. that’s good enough for me. Jim, you really should hear specialty of the house from Fear on Four, I’d be happy to send it to you…

    Thanks Jeff. I saw it spelled two different ways on two different logs, but that image ought to be a good source.

    I’ve heard the Price of Fear version of that story, but would love to hear the Fear On Four as well. Send it along if it’s no bother. ([email protected])

    Hey Jim,

    I sent you Specialty of the House, I hope you enjoy it, it is one of my favorite OTR shows. I appreciate all the effort you put into relicradio. It’s always fun checking in to see what’s new!

    With a handshake,
