During 1988, Zacherle made an appearance on fellow horror hostess, "Stella's", Philadelphia show. The horrible pair teamed up to emcee a double feature. The same year saw the publication of Gordon Guy's biography ZACHERLE!, which is still available from the publisher. Zach also gave two live appearances at Dowling College in Long Island. Both shows were taped by promoter/film historian Jim Knusch and an entertaining video of the event was released.
During 1989, Zach was involved in another pilot called Z-TV. This one had an interesting premise and the benefit of great effects and an eerie set. Zach inherits an old movie theater. The projection room where Zach lives came complete with a fully appointed vintage laboratory. Isabol and Gasport are on hand and so is Dok, a dragon-like creature and Wendy, a beautiful alien. The producers, Rich Schiaffo and Jeff Bianchi are still attempting to find a spot for this show on cable TV.
More recently, Zach was involved in an anniversary reunion of the Disco Teen cast and crew. The event, held "At the Hop" in Clifton, N.Y., was taped and became an entertaining part of the basic Zacherle Video Library.

He's The Most Chiller, Happenin' Host
Fans can expect anything from live musical performances to screenings of vintage Shock Theatre programs. Zacherle has an open invitation to appear at the Chiller Theatre Expos each season and hasn't missed one yet.
One of Zach's collaborators at the Chiller Theatre Expos is Mike Gilks, a Long Island musician, whose goal is to produce a hit compact disc of Zacherle's music. Gilks has thus far released two novelty cassettes with each featuring two songs. It is hope that we'll see a full compact disc album in the very near future.

There have also been several recent Zacherle collectibles, including two model kits, T-shirts, and a poster. Rumor has it that there will be a set of Zacherle trading cards soon.
