2/5/2017 Scary Harry Metz of Fright Night Theatre and Walter "The Music Man" Shrum
After several months on hiatus, BTE Radio is back this week with a fun and entertaining show to kick off 2017. Jeff Belanger will be rescheduled for later this spring but this week we're in for a real treat as we'll be entertained by Walt the Music Man and Scarry Harry and the Spooky Spectre from Fright Night Theatre.
In the first half hour Shawn and Marianne Donley of Dark Shadow Ghost Tours and Panic'D are with us to kick of 2017 with a new episode of the Haunted Spotlight.
At 9:00 pm, Eric and Marie welcome Musician Walter Shrum and local TV Personality and star of Fright Night Theatre, Harry A. Metz.
Walt the Music Man is a Uniontown singer/songwriter's who's inspiration to sing a song about Bigfoot has inspired an entire album dedicated to those who hunt the legendary beast of debatable mythology.
Walter Shrum has been writing and singing songs for 20 years and even turned his attic into a makeshift recording studio, but a bit of inspiration took him down an unusual songwriting path.
It was something about Bigfoot — a.k.a Sasquatch, Yeti, Hairy Stinka Boo, Skunk Ape, Momo and Windego — that Shrum was looking into that caused him to come up with a song and contact his friend and local television personality Harry Metz to shoot a music video to the song “Searching For Bigfoot.”
The song's music video, which can be found on YouTube under “Searching for Bigfoot Music Video,” features areas like the Brownsville Drive-In and the Route 40 Diner.
The video scored more than 8,000 hits on YouTube, but one of those hits came from Rick Dyer, a Bigfoot hunter who has gained national attention over the years and who shared the music video on his website.
The 21-song CD titled “Tribute to the Stars of Bigfoot” not only mentions up to 25 of those Bigfoot hunters who have gained national press and have their own shows, but also includes autographs from them on the CD case, including Rick Dyer, Derek Randles, Biff Burke, Dallas Gilbert, Justin Smeja, Stacy Brown, Tammy Murray, Michael Merchant. Others cited include Matt Moneymaker, Cliff Barackman, James “Bobo” Fay and Ranae Holland from the television show “Finding Bigfoot,” and Beyond The Edge Radio Host and Bigfoot Hunter Eric Altman.
Shrum said he plans on shopping his songs to local radio stations and is trying to get the album in mom and pop stores in the area. For those who need to satisfy their Bigfoot serenade fix, the songs can be purchased on iTunes or viewed on YouTube under “waltthemusicman”.
People can even purchase the entire CD for $12.99 on Pay Pal by contacting Shrum on his facebook page.
