This post is adapted from one of my old “Screen Play” radio episodes on WRUU in Savannah. At the bottom of this post is the parts of the radio show I can legally play. I used editing effects to sound creepy. It was fun doing the radio show but all good things come to an end. I thank WRUU for having me. Rich Wheeler Media has some new ideas coming in 2022. Stay tuned.
All music links are on Spotify but you can find these songs on whatever music service you use or by looking them up on Youtube.

You are 3/4 of the way through this screamfest! Scream 3 premiered at the AMC Avco theater in Westwood, California on February 3, 2000 and nationwide the next day.
