Jeff Wilson and Ohio Legends
Tonight we had as our guest author Jeff Wilson, of Ohio Legends, Volume 3, (and previously discussed), Volume 2, and Volume 1
I got in a bit late, as my PC was acting up big time.
He spoke about his illustrations, each story having a persponally line-drawing in his books, that often relatives of Interesting People Jeff was researching would give Jeff photos from which he could draw faces and such.
Henry wondered if other states were handled similarly to Jeff's books; I pointed out Weird NJ covering some other states as well (specifically Weird Minnesota, Weird Oregon, Weird Wisconsin and Weird New Jersey obvious).
Jeff spoke of being in the previous week's show with guest author Don Allison, and how impressed Jeff was/is with Don's book's title I Met a Ghost in Gettysburg.
Jeff spoke of Margaret Shilling who was an inmate of The Ridges an asylum that, as with every other closed asylum's that Travel Channel ghost hunter shows visit, things went horribly for its "patients." Margaret Shilling went missing, and decades later she was found in an unused area on the top floor. She'd locked herself in a room and had died of a heart attach, but was so decomposed her bodily fluids had left a permanent stain on the concrete floor.
Ceiling Cat Barbara Duncan pointed out Jeff's book also busted a few myths, such as the first manufacture of microwave ovens was in Ohio.
We discussed the origins of Mattel's classic Magic 8-Ball "fortune telling" toy with its icosahedron 20-sided die.
We spoke about the fact that Ohio had the very first Traffic Light, the discovery of a complete mastadon skeleton, the mysterious Adena Artifact discovered in 1841, even the Alliance Ohio Troll Hole store that specializes in the 1960s Troll dolls.
He spoke of his personal ghost experience; in the basement of the former Kettering Tower, opening a document drop box. As he rode up the elevator to the lobby, there was security and custodial crew. As he went to use the door, there was a small person Just Watching Jeff, which suddenly was Gone.
We discussed Helltown and some of the many strange aspects.
The time running down, we touched on the Turkeyfeet Creek treasure and Miamisberg Cemetery ghost stories.
Henry conveyed our guest next week would be Thomas Wertman.
Almost forgot to have CC convey our having listeners tonight in the US, the UK, Canada, Germany, and Spain, which we tossed out at the last moment.
