Elvira in the 1980s w/ Cassandra Peterson

Will, Ray and Kat discuss current 1980s news including how Ralph Macchio feels about “Karate Kid III” and whether Exodus is “s****y” Metallica (or the other way around). Then, the trio discuss their first recollections of Elvira and two of the wild films she hosted on “Movie Macabre” in the 1980s. Finally, Will speaks with Elvira herself, or rather the woman under the heavenly bump (wig), Cassandra Peterson.
