    Heard the interview with Cassandra. She seemed a little spacey but, I’ve met her at Dragon*Con and she IS a little spacey. Very funny and very classy lady. I’m so happy to see her back on the air here in Atlanta.

  2. Kurt says

    I used to have a collection of Penthouse magazines in a couple of boxes. I’m pretty sure there long gone though I do have several boxes of various books in a utility room I haven’t looked through in years. In any case I remember Cassandra was featured in Penthouse back about the time she started doing the Elvira character. Her show was a lot of fun too.
