KTRU Tuesdays: The Owlman Contest

Today’s audio clip features some Owlman contest promos from spring 1982. We  know very little about this show other than that John “Grungy” Gladu played the title character. In the comments, please tell us more.

One more thing, the Rice News wrote an article on the Richard Dobson collection.

  1. Some supplementary info and a quick correction:

    Although not heard on these promo spots, it was Stan Barber who played the title role of Owlman, both in the late ’70s and early ’80s episodes. John Gladu played a guest star in the final episode — a villain called Uncle Nasty.

    Other personnel on those contest promos include David Hoehl as The Announcer, Karen Pieper as Universal Woman, Sharon Hughes as the The Very Enthusiastic Woman, Paul Williamson as Chief Street (a nod to Rice Police Chief H.R. Rhodes), and Greg Cagle as Owlman’s sidekick Academ.
