Chiller Theater from WPIX NEW York

If you grew up on Long Island during the 1970's and were a horror fan you knew this six fingered hand. I have fond memories of staying up late on Saturday nights with a stack of comics and monster mags to watch Chiller Theater. There was no horror host (I was born too late for Zacherley the Cool Ghoul), so this was the closest we in New York got until Elvira's Movie Macabre was syndicated. I still wonder if Zacherley was the one to intone "Chiller" in the opening, it sounds like him or someone doing an impersonation of him. If anyone knows let me know.
