Horror Host Dr. Shock Passes Away

I am sad to announce that TN horror host legend Dr. Shock passed away Sunday, Jan 20th.

Dr. Shock was played by Tommy Reynolds, a program director at WTVC Channel 9 in Chattanooga, TN. He hosted SHOCK Theater in the 1970s along with a puppet sidekick named Dingbat. His is still fondly remembered by fans in the Chattanooga area. You can read an obituary column here:


Here on Shackle Island Dr. Shock will always be fondly remembered. Long live Dr. Shock!
