We've got a battleship of an episode for you this week on Monster Kid Radio! Jason Jaconetti (Bots, Bugs, and Babes) and Luke Jaconetti (Earth Destruction Directive) submit a recording of a round of the Classic Five game. Jeff Polier sends in a Weird Wednesday Report about How to Make a Monster (dir. Herbert L. Strock) from the Joy Cinema. Brenda covers Michael Dodd's Vault of Monster Collectibles. But the big bird of a subject at hand this week is a conversation with author and film score historian David Schecter about the 1957 film The Giant Claw (dir. Fred F. Sears).

  1. I became a bigger fan when I met my husband-to-be, but I used to watch all of the monster films on TV on Saturday mornings. As a woman, I also appreciated that many of the main women in these films tended to have academic credentials and often a lot more common sense about taking care of the giant monsters than their male counterparts. I enjoyed your conversation with David about The Giant Claw. David is a friend and a wealth of information about these movies and their music.
