Happy Halloween! It’s the time of year when we think about ghosts, goblins, and the afterlife on both All Hallow’s Eve and on Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Day). Whether you are planning a spooky costume to scare Trick-or-Treaters or are crafting an altar to honor your deceased ancestors for Day of the Dead, it’s possible that thoughts are turning to hauntings.
This week’s Radio Stuff Podcast tackled the topic of “Haunted Radio Stations” and features interviews with several people who encountered ghosts at their radio stations. Also, blogger David Lloyd recounts a list of ghostly occurrences in the UK in a post this week.
Luckily I don’t get the sense that the station that I call home (KFJC-FM) is permanently haunted, however there was one night when I wasn’t so sure. I was sitting in the KFJC lobby one evening when the front door knob started rattling for no reason. I have no idea if it was a ghost, but it happened soon after one of our DJs died tragically, so I assumed that it was him (Ken “Spiderman” Hamilton) making his presence known.
Here’s are some more tales about haunted radio stations (as well as a haunted radio) for your consideration:
