Tonight's guest for our global listeners, and those in the live
we had author
amongst other titles.
My computer crashed moments before the show and I had to reboot to get back in, barely in time to do his bio introduction.
Jim started out about the
haunting/s at Graceland.
His book being about Tennessee, he discussed the
Jim addressed Henry's inquiry after the entity known as
Old Green Eyes
haunting Chickamauga Creek area, even that Cherokee Indians had its own
about the entity.
Henry asked after Timmy, the Shadow Person named Timmy that lives in Jim's house.
Unsure whether Timmy followed Jim home from an investigation, but Timmy began making appearances as Jim began his book writing.
According to Jim's son, at night Timmy stands in Jim's son's closet and watches the boy sleep.
Henry asked about "Bob," a "nusaince" soldier ghost that Jim has encountered in Gallington, Tenn.
Friend Jeff Preston ran a three-story haunted-house attraction,
which ended up having lots of paranormal activity, mostly in the third floor:
door slams, foot stomps, lights switched off, water running, etc.
Jim spent time on the third floor, and became quite used to Bob moving about.
At one point Bob trudged downstairs and trashed some of the props.
On the other side of the coin, Jim spoke about an extremely
Mean Shadow Person from the mental ward of the
Old South Pittsburg Hospital,
described as about seven foot tall and resembles having horns.
Whatever it is, it literally scares the other hospital ghosts; Jim constantly calls it out to the point that other groups investigating get EVPs regarding Jim.
After the first break Barbara reported tonight we had listeners from the US, Ireland, Canada and Finland.

Old South Pittsburg Hospital
ranks up there; certainly some of the battlefields.
Carter House in Franklin
is rather active.
As to the most scariest place, Jim deemed that a relative term; he's experienced so much he really doesn't experience fear, as it were.
He spoke about the film he co-wrote,

but he's not really experienced as much as in the Pittsburg Hospital.
He went with
Celebrity Ghost Hunters,
along with some horror film actors, and they prefer going to the spot at which a haunted place's owners are the most freaked out.
As to Waverly, were directed to the lobby which freaks out
the Waverly owners.
Jim was first to sit alone in the dark in the lobby, along with a few static cameras set up.
He could hear footsteps and the fabric of a lab coat, and all the surrounding doors' knobs rattling violently.
Then, each of the cameras began to switch off, and more doorknob rattling and footsteps.

After describing a cardboard box with a needle in it, resident genius CC simply said it was a

it's a mixture of slasher and paranormal investigating.
Meawhile Skype was being very uncooperative with my aspect of the call.
We spoke his
