This Halloween Night on KLRU-Q, starting just before 8pm Billy and Mark will be your hosts’ guiding you through this night of spooky shows, leading up to their spookiest episode of Strange Town at 11:30pm. Birth Of The Living Dead at 7:59 pm In 1968 George A. Romero directed Night of the Living Dead, a low budget horror film that shocked the world, became an icon of the counterculture, and spawned a zombie industry worth billions of dollars that continues to this day. Birth of the Living Dead shows how Romero gathered an unlikely team of Pittsburghers to shoot a revolutionary guerrilla-style film that went on to become a cinematic landmark, offering a profound insight into how our society worked in a singular time in American history. Secrets of the Dead Vampire Legend at 8:55 pm Follow scientists as they uncover “deviant” burials dating back to medieval England, pointing to a belief that the dead could rise from their graves. Predating Eastern European legend, these discoveries force a re-examination of modern vampire lore. Frankenstein & The Vampyre at 9:55 pm A fascinating exploration of one of the most significant moments in gothic history – the night when Mary Shelley, Lord Byron and their cohorts gathered together at Lake Geneva to tell ghost stories and the night when Frankenstein and the modern vampire were born. Haunted Texas: Peyton Colony at 10:50 pm A half hour visual exploration into the history of Peyton Colony, Texas in the Texas Hill Country. Going back in time the program introduces you to the people and places that existed in Peyton Colony also known as Freedman’s Colony, a settlement established by former slaves after the Civil war. Strange Town Bridge To The Other Side at 11:20 pm Legend goes that a man was hung from the Moore’s Crossing bridge in Austin, TX. It is said that at Midnight you can see him hanging from the highest crossbeam, with the woman he loved watching from below. Strange Town visited the bridge and stayed late into the night to see for themselves whether or not this long standing tale holds any truth. Strange Town Old Yoakum Hospital at 11:29 pm Once a thriving hospital to the city of Yoakum, it now sits abandoned for the last two decades. Stories have surfaced of a mysterious blue nun and dark shadows appearing down hallways along with children spirits running within the walls of this building. Wait until you see what energies Mark and Billy of Strange Town encounter! HOW TO WATCH: Over the air: 18.3 Grande: 284 Spectrum: 20 and 1268 Google: 77 Suddenlink: 143

Our most recent video of a mist captured at the Magnolia Hotel, continues to spread across the internet! It feels incredible to have our work seen by so many viewers across the internet – over 80,000 in the first 24-hours! The video first got traction by capturing the attention of KSAT 12 ABC San Antonio, and KPRC 2 NBC Houston. The video was then picked up but nationally broadcast radioshow Coast to Coast AM, Disclose.tv, and the Ghost Hunters on Syfy Channel. This evidence has become our most viewed clip, reaching 160K+ views in the first week! More information about the hotel can be learned by watching our full episode about the Magnolia Hotel.
Night #1 group did such a great job investigating! The Magnolia Hotel was full of energy and the air was charged. Lots of REM pod and flashlight activity. “Sam” could be heard whistling multiple times. A large mist was captured on the DVR swirling throughout one of the rooms, lasting about 15 seconds. An antique alarm clock bell was being chimed, and a rock or two may have been heard being thrown in the Raid Shelter. Excited to see what Night #2 has to offer! Huge thanks to everyone that attended our Night 2 of investigations at the Magnolia Hotel, you all made it a very fun and memorable night of exploration. While investigating the second floor, a large number of people saw dark shadow figures and white streaking orbs with their naked eyes. A mirror on the second floor, thought to be a portal, had intriguing orb activity and also new voices heard over the Spirit Box in that room.And of course a huge shout-out to Erin, Jim, Dawn, and Susie for opening up the Magnolia Hotel to us and allowing this unique opportunity.
