But I Saw It!

T.A.Y.S. stands for These Are Your Stories

Our story today was sent in  by Austin Sherman-Burke who writes to us from Los Angeles. He has titled this story, “But I saw It!”

When I was 10 years old I was sleeping over at my friend’s apartment in the same complex as me. It was a late summer night when I suddenly woke up not feeling good for some reason so I went to the window to breathe in some fresh air. I was thinking it was probably a nightmare that I just couldn’t remember which was weird because I always do… anyways, my friends were dead asleep in the same room as me and I’m at the window. 

First I look around at the top of the trees, and then the sky. My eyes go down towards the street in front of me then I see a man dressed in black. I could see his red eyes staring up right at our window..staring at me. He’s not moving a finger just standing there looking at me. I woke up my friends telling them to look down at the street, which they immediately did. They all looked back at me like I was crazy saying that they couldn’t see anything and that there was no one down there. Mind you at this point I’m just crying and hysterically telling them that he’s right there right in front of them, but they couldn’t see him. They eventually went and woke their older brother who was 17 years old so that he could come and try to calm me down. After a while I did, but I never went back to sleep.

That was the end of it. I am 25 years old now and still live in LA. I never saw anything else after that. I am not schizophrenic at all. I had a shrink when I was 14 but that was for social anxiety because of moving so often. To this day I am quite confused about that night and what I really saw. Ron, I’m curious to know if anyone has experienced something like this? Have you heard stories like this before? – Austin Sherman-Burke

Well Austin, I can say that we have had many stories like this one on the show in the past. However, none of them have had a shadow that only they could see. That is a first. Some will say that the night can play tricks with the eye, however I am not sure that applies to this situation. There are many cases of people seeing things that only they see. Unfortunately, most of these are attributed to hallucinations. You did say that you may have had a bad dream. But it doesn’t make sense that the apparition would persist.  I do know this. People find that telling their stories can be quite cathartic. I hope that is the case for you.

News – January 10th, 2023

It has been an interesting first two weeks of 2023. I have had illness, storms, tree limbs falling and tree limb removal and that is just to start. The good news is that things are looking up and I am excited for the future. I want to thank everyone that checked in on me during this time. To reiterate I am fine now and have dug out from under the rubble. Literally!

One of the things that I want to do in 2023 is return to the themed show. These are not only popular, but they are fun to do. Some of the best numbers we have had have been from these programs. Examples have been the UFO special with Jim Harold, Ghost Story Battles with Sylvia, and The Cryptid Stories series. 

Rons Picture

One of the early themed shows you have to look forward to is The Lizzie Borden Special. Sylvia Shults will take us through all of the interesting stories and subplots of that strange piece of americana. Coming up this week we have an entire show dedicated to Sherlock Holmes. David Clark will read the original Holmes adventure titled A Case Of Identity. Also, I will review The Further Adventures of Sherlock Holmes series by Jim French. This is a modern day homage to the old time radio series The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes starring Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce. We feature those on the show from time to time.

The Music Never Stops

We have a short story with no explanation. It was sent in for us by Bryant Fowler who lives in the great state of New York. He has titled his story, The Music Never Stops.

Hello Ron, never miss the show. So the past few nights I have been hearing music. I can’t tell what kind of music exactly but it sounds like a mixture between jazz and classical. The scariest incident happened a few nights ago when I was out in my living room in the darkness talking to one of my buddies over discord. Just texting, no voice chat. Then I heard the music for the second time that week. I got up, was more curious than scared and went into the dining room. Now I thought originally, “ok, my girlfriend is still in bed. It’s 4AM and maybe she is up? Snapchatting or something? As soon as I went into the dining room it shifted and sounded like it was coming from the room I just left, the exact opposite way of the dining room. I chased it around for a good solid 5 minutes before it just went away. We’re not the type of people to just have radios laying around, we keep one for emergencies only. I still don’t know what to make of this and it still freaks me out today. Do you have any idea of what it was?  For the record it is NOT the neighbors. The closest one to us is a good 500 feet away.

Well Bryant I have no idea what you heard. I did some research on the internet and I found a family in Lockport that said strange sounds, including music and talk radio, have been coming out of their walls and keeping them up at night off and on for about six years. It may sound like an episode of the popular Netflix show “Stranger Things,” but the mysterious sounds they are hearing are real. They captured some of the late night noise on a phone and sent it to a local TV station. The music was faint, but you could hear it. The family called Lockport police, who took two detailed reports about the bizarre problem. In one, the officer noted that he could hear voices and music. Then the officer said he heard a commercial for the Christian radio station AM 1160. The station sent out an engineer to investigate the transmission. He said, ‘I got to be honest with you. I have no idea what is receiving the signal. There is nothing that can explain why you’re actually hearing it.’ The family tore up the wall of their daughter’s bedroom to inspect the electrical grounding, but nothing was found and the phenomenon still continues. 

I doubt that helps much, but it might give you a place to start. Thank you for your story.

Ron
