139: The Son of the Godfather of Halloween – DON POST JR.

Don Post. Does that name bring back memories for some of you? Let’s go Skywalking through October with the man that put Halloween on the map – Don Post Jr! Don’s father, nick-named the Godfather of Halloween, started up Don Post Studios and together he and his son built up the company. They eventually acquired the license to make full head Star Wars masks and helmets back in 1977 and the rest is Halloween history. We could not BE more excited to share this interview with you, and Don Post, Jr. himself was just as excited. The memories he has to share bring tears to your eyes.
