HYPNOBOBS 36 - A Hornbook For Witches

With a raging throat infection rendering his usual golden tones into something akin to the croaking of the blasphemous fish-frogs of old Innsmouth town, Mr Jim Moon quaffs a magic potion and summons up a guest narrator to handle this week's show. And stone me, who should appear but the great man who is rapidly becoming the patron saint of HYPNOBOBS, Mr Vincent Price...
