Living With Real Ghosts!



Has The Concept of Haunted Places and Real Ghosts finally been accepted worldwide?

"Real ghost photos - real ghost stories." You decide!

Ghost Tours, Haunted Hotels and Television and DVD's and Books and Webs sites have opened up the Paranormal Zone to everyone.

Has it Touched you yet?

Story by Ben Vaughn, Artwork Ricardo Pustanio

Story posted Tuesday May 2, 2007

Ghosts are everywhere now a days, turn on the TV, go to a book store or read the morning paper. The World of the Paranormal has finally hit the mainstream. But has it hit it's over saturation level yet. Sci Fi Channel Announces Its Summer Programming. In October 2004, SCI FI introduced Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson--plumbers by day, Ghost Hunters by night! These self-proclaimed skeptics have managed to expose some of the most frighteningly compelling evidence of paranormal phenomenon ever seen on television. Being scared has never been so much fun! Enjoying record-high ratings throughout its series run, Ghost Hunters returns to SCI FI with all-new episodes on June 6th.

The Paranormal and the unknown is starting to pull in a lot of new believers as well as the skeptics. Is It the real "End Times" you might ask? Or is this syndication heaven? I can remember me and my friends would wait on pins and needles for the reruns and new Halloween Paranormal movies and shows and haunted specials to host the airwaves.

With new Paranormal Investigation groups starting everyday and armchair ghost hunters searching the web, ghost stories, Haunted videos, and ghost hunting equipment or for info to make them believe even more. So what's this world coming to? It use to be that Ghost stories as Movies and television shows only reared their Paranormal heads during the month of October only to disappear as a ghost on on Novemeber1st. Now it's Halloween 365 days of the year. I hope Taps and their Ghost Hunters does a Christmas special this year. I'd love to hear Jason Hawes and crew sing "Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer " live while ghost hunting Santa's workshop at the North Pole!

The Ghost On Television

In recent years, it seems paranormal television shows discussing and studying real hauntings and ghosts have been everywhere. But it goes back a lot further then you might imagine. Ghosts and hauntings and all that is the unexplained are frequent subjects for television documentaries. On Alcoa Presents: One Step Beyond, which premiered in the 1950s, serious students of psychical research recognized many classic cases of ghosts and phantoms presented in a balanced manner, but with the actual names and places changed.

Never Seen A Ghost? Then TV May Be Where You Will See One! Glenn Sparks, professor of communication, and colleagues conducted a random telephone survey of 120 people in a small Midwestern city. The researchers wanted to know whether exposure to paranormal phenomena on television affected belief in such things as unidentified flying objects, ghosts, devils and extra-sensory perception.


Sparks says belief in the paranormal is more complicated than it might seem. He says many factors such as age, family, religion and education influence one's beliefs. "After all these other variables are considered, the fact that television even factored in is kind of remarkable," he says. "Television may explain 10 percent of the belief in the paranormal."

Television viewing was not found to be an influence for people who reported real life experience with paranormal phenomena. However, for those who had no such experiences, belief in supernatural beings was related to the viewing of paranormal programming.

"The Television Ghost" - "murder stories as told by the ghost of the murdered" - was a regular feature on the CBS experiment station W2XAB, which broadcast from 1931-33. It has been called TV's first "dramatic narrative anthology series." This is stretching things a bit. The low-resolution mechanical scanning system of the day limited every program to views of one or two "talking heads." In reality, the show probably consisted of an unrelieved 15-minute monologue by actor George Kelting, who is described in a period account as wearing ghastly white face makeup and a small towel draped shroud-like over his head. Even given the excitement of seeing live pictures over the air in those early days, "The Television Ghost" must have made very tiresome viewing. It is safe to say that "The Television Ghost" is lost for good - as is every other TV broadcast of that era. Existing receiver screens were so dim that capturing a telecast on film was never even attempted. The station logbook, and scattered write-ups and photos in the contemporary press, are all that remains to document CBS' first venture into television. Information from William Hawes, "American Television Drama: The Experimental Years" (University of Alabama Press, 1986) and assorted other sources.

In 1953, Topper, a fantasy-comedy about a businessman who is harassed by a ghostly couple trying to get him to loosen up and enjoy life, became a successful television series. The characters were derived from Topper (1937), a comedy that became popular enough among motion picture audiences to produce two sequels.

The Ghost and Mrs. Muir (1968–70) in which the restless spirit of a handsome sea captain (Edward Mulhare) haunted a beautiful widow (Hope Lange) in a picturesque New England seaside cottage. The series was another successful adaptation of a popular motion picture (The Ghost and Mrs. Muir, 1947).

The SciFi Channel

Sci Fi (sometimes rendered Sci-Fi when part of a longer phrase) is an American cable television channel, launched on September 24, 1992, specializing in science fiction, fantasy, horror, and paranormal programming. It is part of the entertainment conglomerate NBC Universal.

In Spring 2000, Sci Fi began airing the reality series Crossing Over with John Edward, an audience participation show starring a self-professed psychic who claims he can communicate with the dead. Though the act was a familiar mentalist trick from carnival sideshows and vaudeville, Edward assured audiences he was genuine and developed a large following of fans and believers.

the scifi channel

In November 2000, a story on the TV news magazine Dateline NBC raised doubts on Edward's abilities. The program depicted Edward analyzing a Dateline cameraman and verifying many personal facts from the cameraman's life. Later, however, other Dateline staff discovered footage of Edward talking to the same cameraman at other events the crew was filming. The cameraman stated that it was likely Edward obtained the information at those events. Approximately four years later, the ABC TV magazine 20/20 aired its investigation of an Edward's TV-studio taping. In the segment, Edward zeroed in on one member of the 20/20 news staff (who was not of the audience), also getting personal information. Edward has also been denounced by investigator and debunker James Randi.

Edward's most controversial show went unaired. Shortly after the 2001 World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks, Edward began filming at least one special in which he met with some relatives of the victims, with the intention of "communicating" with those who were killed. The trade magazine Broadcasting & Cable sent a story, "'Psychic' Plans WTC Victims Show", on its daily subscription fax sent to news media and TV-station executives on 25 October 2001. Steve Rosenberg, president of domestic television for Edward's production company, Studios USA, had tentatively scheduled the programs to air during the November sweeps period. Both Sci Fi and the Crossing Over with John Edward production office were flooded with phone calls and e-mail, some expressing outrage at the exploitation of the national tragedy, others at what they perceived as extreme tastelessness in search of ratings. Rosenberg initially ignored the criticism, insisting the programming would go on as scheduled, but within hours terminated plans.

Yes there always was a UFO special or a Haunted Televsion show about ghost but following the trends since the premiere of Ghost Hunters on the Scifi channel other have jumped on the supernatural bandwagon. Nation Geographic, Discovery Channel, and even Court TV and the Biography channel and the the big 3 ( ABC, CBS, and NBC) all have something really Haunted to offer.

Britain's Most Haunted and new show The X-Testers, America's Ghost Whisperer, Medium, Canada's Most Haunted, Lisa Williams: Life Among The Dead, Supernatural. Are they just all the offspring from John Edwards, Derek Acorah, Dead Famous, Psychic Investigators and James Van Praagh. The new seasos shows are part drama and part paranormal truths.

Singer pop star Robbie Williams has been banned from hosting his own show about the supernatural. Angels singer planned to front a Most Haunted-style series for ITV, but his record company instructed him to ditch the idea and focus on rescuing his music career. It is rumoured that he will release a swing record later this year after his Rudebox album flopped in 2006.

A source told the Daily Star: "Robbie loves the unexplained and got hooked on Yvette Fielding's show Most Haunted. When producers asked him if he'd appear on the programme, he went one better and decided to do his own show.

"It was all good to go and the format and co-host had been sorted but it got the red light from his music people who said it wasn't right for his image."

Though some shows have gone on to the other side. Haunted (TV series) was an American television program broadcast on UPN, first aired in 2002. The program was then cancelled in November 2002 due to low ratings. The series will begin airing on The Sci Fi Channel in late 2006. STARS: Matthew Fox as Frank Taylor Russell Hornsby as Marcus Bradshaw John Mann as Simon Lynn Collins as Jessica Taylor.

SciFi's now dead and buried show Sci Fi Investigates Premiered: October 11, 2006, still haunts the airwaves now and then. Following the investigations of four very different experts and researchers, the team of 'SCI FI Investigates' looks for answers to science's most intriguing mysteries, legends and paranormal phenomena. The team includes a crime scene investigator, archaeologist, paranormal expert and a skeptic.

Josh searches for evidence to either prove or debunk these stories by talking to witnesses and experts and immersing himself in the local culture. The series is executive produced by Neil and Michael Mandt.

Ghost Hunters has new episodes on the way for season three, and it's been renewed for season four! America's favorite paranormal plumbers, Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson, will deliver 13 episodes of spine-tingling investigations for the show's fourth season, set to debut in 2008.

Throughout this show, which was going to keep a lot of kids up way past their bedtime, viewers cpuld log on to www.scifi.com and watch a live feed… and they were able to e-mail the team's control room to alert them to any paranormal activity they see online that Jason and the others may not know about. with ECW Wrestler CM Punk in tow. The Plan to do it again this year too for 2007!

Yes, I Heard A Real Ghost On The Radio

Radio Shows like Coast to Coast AM With George Norry, and the Larger then life living legend 2007 NRHOF nominee Art Bell. Art Bell’s nationally-syndicated Coast to Coast AM show features the weird, aliens and Ghosts and cutting age interviews with all those in the know.

Is there really such a thing as a paranormal expert in this haunted world?

The Real Ghost Hunters

When all else fails they say call in the experts. If your haunting has gone all out of control or you need some serious validation to the strange supernatural or paranormal occurrences that are happening to you then seeking expert help is your only solution. Published authors, lecturers, radio and television hosts, and more are all considered part of the ever growing field of research. Some do not claim to be experts in the paranormal, as no experts really exist when it comes to the supernatural, It's all just gathering information and experiencing things on a first hand basis.

Art Bell is no ordinary talk show host, not just because "Coast to Coast AM" is the dominant live all-night show in America today, but because Art's a true radio fanatic, the ultimate "new media" personality. How many hosts get off the air after a four hour show, turn on another microphone, and talk to fellow Ham operators around the country? How many talk hosts have the engineering know-how to produce their own show, run their own technical board, and generally control the ebb and flow of the show from the first on- air minute to the last? Art Bell's grasp of the electronic revolution--and how to make it personal--is unique; he's a talk show host primed to influence 21st century America in more ways than one.

With that same spirit, Ian Punnett has been exploring the night regularly on Coast to Coast AM since 1998.

In fact, if Coast to Coast were a branch of the military, Ian would be a veteran reservist having served alongside every Coast to Coast host in the show's history. For years, even while performing his own daily talk show and attending seminary, Ian hosted Sunday night's "Coast to Coast AM with Ian Punnett" until leaving for a new talk radio project in the Twin Cities and making way for George Noory.

It became official on January 1, 2003. George Noory took over the reins from retiring Art Bell to become the host of America's most fascinating overnight radio program. Looking back on George's life and his passion for all things unexplained, it seems almost fated that he would fulfill this unique role.

Ghostly Talk - Paranormal Talk Radio

Meet the people of Ghostly Talk

Doug (a/k/a "Skizz") has been interested in paranormal topics ever since checking out a book about witchcraft from his elementary school library. He has read many books about paranormal subjects, with his favorite topics being out of body experiences, Edgar Cayce, ESP, prophesy, and ghosts. While surfing the internet in 2001, he was happy to learn that other folks actually went prowling about cemeteries and haunted places looking for ghosts. Since then, he has been an avid ghost hunter. Doug had done terrestrial radio before at WTWR, the station at the University of Detroit. He received his Bachelor's degree in Management Sciences and Information Systems from the University of Detroit. Upon meeting Scott L on ghost hunts, Doug suggested doing an internet talk show about ghost hunting. The premier of Ghostly Talk in February 2002 streamed to a total listening audience of one (1) computer, though two (2) people were listening. Doug continues to ghost hunt and co-host Ghostly Talk from Fraser, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit.

Born and raised in the suburbs of Detroit, MI, Scott L. became interested in the paranormal as a young child when he bought his first book 'Haunted Houses' by Larry Kettelkamp at a garage sale for $.25. Intrigued and frightened by this book, Scott L. developed an adolescent interest in the paranormal that rooted itself firmly into the little boys mind through the present day:

"For a while, with college going on and being a professional musician, I didn't have time to really pursue the paranormal field as extensively as I wanted to."

It was when Scott L graduated from Wayne State University with a major in Operational Logistics and minor in Information Systems Development that he now had the time to pursue his passion.

How did he get into radio though? 'Honestly, I have wanted to do radio for a very long time. I had some downtime from playing music about 5 years ago, and it was a something that went through my mind a lot. Unfortunately, I had no contacts at the time to break in and try to pursue it. When I met Doug after doing a lot of ghost hunting and talking about the paranormal, he asked if I wanted to try to do an internet talk show on the subject(s), I jumped at the opportunity.'

In addition to being one of the creators of Ghostly Talk, Scott L. is the webmaster/caretaker for the now defunct speed metal band Holy Terror.

'To Do The Dream Is Not A Dream, It Is A Must.' -Scott L.
