Host Eric Dwinnells is back to finish telling you about The Curse of the Pharaohs! The idea is that those who enter a pharaoh's tomb are cursed and often die of mysterious causes...but is there any truth to it? Tonight, he'll separate fact from fiction and explain some of the odd things that really did occur around the opening of King Tut's tomb and pointing out half truths and outright lies that grew around the story.
Loyal listeners will probably guess that Eric doesn't put much stock in the idea of a mummy actually getting up and murdering people like in the movies. But does that mean there is no truth to ancient Egyptian curses? What about the idea bacteria on mummies and/or growing on tomb walls can lead to death (thus creating a roundabout curse)? As recently as the 1990's there has been a death attributed to just such a "curse".
We'll here what the medical establishment, Lord Carnarvon's relatives, and noted skeptic Jams Randi have to say regarding all this and more on tonight's Spooky A S!

Ok, we know...it's a short one. But work with us here! Your host, Eric Dwinnells has about 10 minutes of free time per day thanks to work stuff/theater stuff so he's giving you what he can. Tonight, we begin an in-depth two part look into the Curse of The Pharaohs! Apparently, ancient kings/gods on earth do NOT like to be woken up, but is there any grain of truth to the idea that ancient Egyptian tombs may be cursed?
Tonight we'll focus mostly on the many deaths and strange events said to be connected with the discovery of the tomb of the Pharaoh Tutankhamun aka King Tut, the boy king. What happened when Howard Carter opened discovered the door to the tomb? What could have caused the death of Lord Carnarvon or his daughter's stroke? Why did the Egyptian Director of Antiquities think it was a terrible mistake to allow King Tut's treasures to leave Egypt? And what horrors will Tom Cruise release in 2017's The Mummy (the first entry in Universals "Dark Universe")
All this and more will be discussed on tonight's Spooky A S!

Eric Dwinnells and guest cohost Brian Toney are back and this time, they are talking about The King of Rock & Roll, Elvis Presley! More specifically, they are discussing numerous theories about why and how Elvis may have faked his death. Was Elvis running from the spotlight, an international group of conmen, the mob, or his own manager?
What proof is out there that Elvis lived for many years after his reported death? Well, there's the strange, waxy looking figure that was in his casket. Then his name is spelled wrong on his grave. What about all the photographic evidence? The numerous audio taped confessions? And the DNA evidence from Eliza Presley and the mysterious "Jess"! And just who or what is Jimmy Ellis aka Orion?
We'll discuss all this plus Eric reveals another of the strange customs of his hometown and gives audience members coming to see him in Rock of Ages a word of warning. And what happens when your computer just shuts down in the middle of your show? All this and slightly more on tonight's Spooky A S!
