Jacob and Tab examine the history of censorship in horror by focusing on the Motion Picture Production Code (aka the Hays Code), the demise of horror comics through the forming of the Comics Code Authority, and the moral panic of the video nasties era in Britain. Join them as they explore the battle between monster kids and three super villains hell bent on squashing horror at every turn – Joseph Breen, Dr. Frederic Wertham, and Mary Whitehouse!
“Test Pattern” is made in the spirit of the old hosted monster movie shows of our youth – a little bit spooky, a little bit silly, but always informative! Jacob and Tab have a new topic each week, with a focus on old school macabre films, favorite creature features, and B-movies.
Test Pattern can also be heard on 103.5 FM in Wisconsin
