The Char Man


Dan will be telling the story of Char Man on today’s show.  An urban legend coming from California that again will be exploring the intersection of fiction and MAYBE fact. Then he  shares the story of the only legally haunted house in the United States. 1 LaVeta Place Nyack, New York. Sometimes called The Ghostbuster House due to the so-called “Ghost Buster” legal ruling. 
Lynze has three incredible tales to share with you this week, the middle story being the scariest and sandwiched in between two head scratchers.  UFO’s and attachments and ghosts, oh my!

Opening Sumerian protection spell (adapted):
Whether thou art a ghost that hath come from the earth, or a phantom of night that hath no home… or one that lieth dead in the desert… or a ghost unburied… or a demon or a ghoul… Whatever thou be until thou art removed… thou shalt find here no water to drink… Thou shalt not stretch forth thy hand to our own… Into our house enter thou not. Through our fence, breakthrough thou not… we are protected though we may be frightened.  Our life you may not steal, though we may feel SCARED TO DEATH.”
