You read that correctly... we'll be doing our Halloween special show from the actual home of Harry & Bess Houdini!!! We owe a special thanks to the current owners and residents of Houdini's home, Vincent & Niro Toms, who will give us a tour of this historical property!And to make a great thing even better, Houdini expert and historian John Cox will be joining us for the fun and sharing some unbelievable stories and facts!
PLUS... we will talk to the incomparable Leo Behnke about one of the finest manufacturers and inventors of magic, Merv Taylor! Leo is an incredible wealth of information and stories... and we'll sit down with him in the unbelievable library at David Copperfield's International Museum and Library of the Conjuring Arts!
But wait... there's more! If time allows, we'll head over to Egyptian Hall and the home of Mike Caveney in Pasadena and drool over some gorgeous posters very few people have ever seen! Seriously, you won't believe your eyes!
It's this Sunday, October 30, 2022! Trust me... it's going to be jam-packed and phenomenal!

It is a glorious place – huge pools with gold fish – fountains – and beautiful patio with swings and sun shades – then the awful horrors – half dead men and women in wheelchairs – nurses – doctors and sick people – that's all I see all day.
I did manage to navigate to the bathroom by myself until this morning – then I fell – now I've got a nice big egg on my head – and a scolding from my nurse. Even that did not "squash" me until I saw a big huskie put an oxygen tent next to my bed – I screamed – I saw my beloved Houdini – then Ed Saint die whilst using this – and the memory was too much for me.

Harry has always admired the famous escape artist Houdini. And when Houdini asks for help in coming back to life, it seems like an amazing chance...or could it be Houdini's greatest trick of all?

Houdini's Personal Seance ClockThis clock was used in Houdini's "debunking" seance performances of 1923 to 26 trickery in which he demonstrated how fraudulent mediums used trickery (in this case a wax hand taking the place of the medium's hand while the real hands were busy stopping in the clock!)
