[Podcast] RIP Santos Ellin Jr. – Episode 234 – Horror News Radio

It’s a somber mood for The Grue Crew this episode. Our Gruesome family received some devastating news this past week. Our brother in pods Santos “The Black Saint” Ellin Jr. passed on September 21st, 2017. A loyal host of the show since it started back in 2013, Santos was not just a fun voice and a bitter commenter. He was family. For this special episode of Horror News Radio, Doc Rotten, Dave Dreher, Thomas Mariani and Christopher G. Moore pay tribute to their favorite curmudgeon and try to make sense of all this sadness.

Next week, the entire HNR Grue-Crew would love to hear from you, the listeners, the fans about this untimely passing.

    I don’t even know what to say. I looked forward to hearing Santos every week, whether on HNR or Decades of Horror. His loveable curmudgeonly personality brought me back every week. It’s not fair. I just don’t understand. I apologize if I’m rambling, this just really hit me hard today. I just can’t believe it.
