Below is last month's episode of ParaReality Radio, which aired on May 1, 2020.
PSH UK Radio is a UK-based Internet paranormal talk radio station. Hosting shows most nights a week on a variety of subjects ranging from ghosts and hauntings, cryptozoology, the occult, UFOs and a variety of other subjects that could be classed as paranormal.
Sam Mason has been in the paranormal field for over 5 years. She first got into the paranormal because her mother has the ability to see spirits. This fascinated her and she began watch Paranormal TV shows. Because of her keen interest in Paranormal TV, she decided to go on a public ghost hunt with a local team. As she continues to go on her paranormal journey she is beginning to learn more about how to use her own senses & feelings to use on Paranormal Investigations.
She started PSH Radio 6 years ago so she could speak to people who had the same interest in the paranormal as her. That is how she met Carl Hutchinson.
Carl Hutchinson has been investigating the paranormal for over 10 years. In his own words, he is "A logical minded person who always looks for a natural reason behind the activity" he experiences.
During his time investigating the paranormal he has had some very interesting and scary moments. He has been punched by unseen hands at Fort Horsted and has even seen a full-bodied apparition of a woman at Rye Castle. He has also heard disembodied footsteps, whistles and other strange noises during his investigations. "Various things" have also been thrown at him by unseen spirits.
For the past few years, Carl has been lucky enough to be able to work with television and paranormal conventions in both the US and the UK. He has worked with Ghost Adventures, Really TV as part of the UK Haunted Live team, as well as being behind the scenes helping out at Sage Paracon, a paranormal convention in the UK.
Join me as I talk to Sam and Carl about some of their most memorable investigations and evidence that they have gathered. We will also discuss how the pandemic is affecting their investigations along with how they met each other and got into podcasting.
Eventually, the show became so popular that a local radio station came calling. Some time in 2005, (I can't remember the exact date), WRFN, a small radio station in Pasquo, TN that was a mix of news, talk and music, contacted me about adding ParaReality Radio to their lineup. Needless to say, I was very honored that a traditional radio station had taken interest in what I was doing. After some negotiating, WRFN agreed to air ParaReality Radio on the second and third Fridays of every month because I didn't want to give up what I was doing on Live365. However, this gave me the opportunity to have my show heard by a local audience and that was a very big deal.
I wound up only keeping ParaReality Radio at WRFN for about 2 1/2 years because I started back to college and I was still maintaining my Live365 show. The stress of doing that and school proved to be too much and I eventually made the painful decision to leave WRFN.
Of all the shows that I did there, only a few survive and that's what is included in this part of the archives. I only have 20 episodes to include here and one interview that I did on another WRFN show called Paranormal Nashville, which was hosted by Tony Pratt, who I eventually became good friends with. I hope that you enjoy these episodes as well.
In 2004 I began my tenure on Live365, which was, at the time, the premier platform for online broadcasting. Live365 was geared more towards online radio stations and that's why I named my show ParaReality Radio. However, us individual broadcasters made a place for ourselves there, too. I began by airing a 2 hour live show the first and third Fridays of every month and before long, I was able to have enough episodes to run a steady rotation of my episodes 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Before long, I gained a loyal following and had regular listeners of the show every time I went on the air. It was thanks to people like them that ParaReality Radio was able to quickly become the #1 ranked show in its genre on Live365, a position that it held for 5 consecutive years.
As you might be able to guess, the show was actually terrible at first! I was still learning not only who I was as a broadcaster, but how to run the show and the equipment that I was using was pretty basic. That first year saw some painful growth spurts, but I quickly mastered the art of live broadcasting and before long, I added a segment to the show that I called News of the Strange.
News of the Strange was a 30 minute news segment that encompassed the last half hour of every episode. I would include one or two paranormal news stories, followed by another one or two "strange" stories that usually involved someone behaving stupidly. I would read each story, then give my commentary about each one and often times it was quite funny. It proved to be a huge hit and the listeners love to chime in and give their commentaries on the stories, too!
I'm slowly going to be adding shows to this section of the archives periodically, so you'll have to sift through some bad shows to get to the good ones. However, I hope that you enjoy them all!
