Opening Slate for RKO Radio Pictures

RKO (Radio-Keith-Orpheum) Pictures is an American film production and distribution company referenced in both The Rocky Horror Show and it's film adaptation, The Rocky Horror Picture Show. The tower logo that appeared as the beginning title card of each film made by this company was parodied in the final act of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, most noteably as Rocky carries his love, Frank, up the tower in an homage to King King (which was an RKO film). An early call-back at Audience Participation was to say "A Richard K O'Brien Radio Picture" as the set is revealed before "Don't Dream It, Be It."
