Elvira is Back!

Written by

Cassandra_Peterson and Garth
Over the weekend I read the fantastic LA Weekly cover story on the return of Elvira, Mistress of the Dark. But as Elvira’s alter ego Cassandra Peterson pointed out – she’s never been away! In fact, she stopped by KCRW a couple years ago to participate in the Guest DJ Project, sharing some incredible stories from her time as a Vegas Showgirl and hanging with the White Stripes. (she also returned a few days later with her daughter in tow to check out a live performance from MGMT).  A true music lover and a truly interesting person, even out of character.

(This was also notable as it was the first time I ever saw DJ Garth Trinidad trip over his words and lose his cool, just a little bit. I think many men his age would have been the same way….)

Cassandra Peterson’s Tracklist

1.) Elvis Presley- Hound Dog
2.) The Beatles – I Saw Her Standing There
