Back in 1998, Purging Talon Executive Director Matt G. Paradise produced this “mockumentary” on Studio 8 Live / Uncensored, a public access television program which aired on VCAM Channel 15 in Burlington, Vermont, mostly during the 1990s. The video aired at least once on Paradise’s then-current public access show, Subterranean SINema, and then found a home on the now out-of-print Purging Talon DVD title, The Best of Subterranean SINema. Since then, the video had not been publicly available until now. Also, this is the “Producer’s Cut,” which was finished in December of 2003 and includes new graphics, additional b-roll scenes, and tweaks here and there. It has also been preserved in its original 4:3 aspect ratio to make you feel all gushy and nostalgic. Enjoy!

Purging Talon Executive Director, Matt G. Paradise is featured in a pictorial entitled “Satanic Family Values” in the latest issue of Old Nick Magazine. Shot by the inimitable Paul Smalley (who is currently restoring his 19th century mansion in Iowa), the article showcases a few rakish gents of note in the infamous Church of Satan. From the publisher:
“Old Nick Magazine and its website were created for the forgotten man… the man who longs for the time of the genuine gentleman with a dark bent. The sophisticated gent who demonstrates manners and grace in every circumstance whether he’s at a formal affair or a ball game. We’re here for the man who loves women with curves, and who feel, smell and act like women. Welcome all you who are rogues, libertines and voluptuaries at heart”
The “Hell It’s Hot” summer issue (which also contains lots of pictures of naked women as well as articles on food, culture, art, sex and more) can be purchased either in print or digital form (there’s even an app for that!) at the issue’s MagCloud page. Back issues are available here. Official website for Old Nick is here (NSFW).
To mark the station’s 13th anniversary, the DJs of Radio Free Satan (including Terror Transmission) have each combined special representations of their respective shows to create one 90-minute special. From metal to classical, from commentary to comedy, from swing to new-wave, you’ll hear it all in the 2013 Radio Free Satan Sampler, provided below.

From 2003-2006, Purging Talon Executive Director, Matt G. Paradise, produced an Internet radio program called Heavy Metal Memories. As you could imagine, it was focused on the past: in this case, ’70s and ’80s metal. After a six-year hiatus, Magister Paradise is back on Radio Free Satan, this time with his co-host, Jason Andreasson, by the inclusion of their already popular horror commentary podcast, Terror Transmission — a show dedicated to classic horror from the silent era to the 1980s.
So, in addition to finding Terror Transmission’s show on its official site, iTunes, and Stitcher, as well as its general presence on Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, and YouTube, you can also download and stream episodes from its page on the RFS site.
Purging Talon is proud to once more support Radio Free Satan in a more direct capacity and eager to gain new listeners for the show.
