Deadpit Radio is an internet-based radio show, hosted by The Creepy Kentuckian (Wes Vance) and Uncle Bill (Aaron T. Frye) every Friday. Deadpit debuted in December of ‘05 with a talk show focusing solely on the horror film genre. The show is broadcast every week from the Deadpit Studios, located in the hills of Prestonsburg, Kentucky. Like most internet based radio shows or podcasts, the weekly program is downloaded from their official website  or through iTunes.
Deadpit's website also features a review database that includes DVD, Blu-ray, books, VHS, and laserdiscs. They also have a following on YouTube, where they have posted over two hundred videos. Popular video series include Deadpit: On the Road, where they document their experiences of heading to the local movie theater, and Diary of the Deadpit, which is an introspective look into their horror fandom.
Deadpit Radio's first show was uploaded on Friday December 23, 2005, which was their "2005 Year in Review" show. Since then, they have created a show almost every Friday, and at this time, all episodes are available for download on their website. While the topics of the show follow the current landscape of horror, long running issues of contention are their hatred for director Eli Roth, their disappointment for what Fangoria has become, and their disdain for the horror remake trend that Hollywood has adopted. Deadpit's original intention was to review all independent cinema that was submitted. Due to the increase in the amount of material sent to them from disc manufacturing studios, the focus has shifted to studio released films; however, independent cinema is still given considerable airtime.
The show lasts between two and three hours, and has a fairly standard order of segments.
- Horror News
- Featured Segment (either an interview or a retrospective)
- Fan Questions (call-in and email)
- DVD and Blu-ray reviews (between two and four titles)
