All shows are pay-what-you-can but individual reservations are required for each show, as follows: (continue reading…)
As is always the case for me with a new Boneyards venue, I’ve done a little pre-show ghost reconnaissance. Amazing otherworldly video and transcript below. They’re there and they’re waiting for us.
“Hi folks, Jeff Stanley here … 3 shows coming up on the 19th, 27th and 28th of June. 5219 Webster Street in Philadelphia.
And of course one thing I need to do is see if there’s anyone here with us. And you know what I’m talking about. I have here as usual a P-SB7 Investigational TransCommunication Research Device for listening in on voices of the dead.
I understand this place was built in 1925 and was originally a private residence. It has now been made into a performance space.
250 milliseconds, I’m doing FM, scanning reverse …
Is there anyone out there who’d like to talk to us today?
You might want to go on foot. (I’m taking this as a hostile spirit telling me to get the hell out but as usual there are multiple competing voices vying to be heard.)
If there’s anyone here who would like to audition and be in the show with me …
No clue. (presumably no clue what the I’m talking about regarding a show, auditions, and this weird device in my hand).
…you gotta really belt it out.
Not me. (a shy one but three hams are coming up) (continue reading…)
Friday 6/19 at 9pm
Saturday 6/27 at 9pm
Sunday 6/28 at 7pm.
All seats $10. Mark your calendars and stay tuned for reservation details.
These performances will be part of the Body Horror Mini-Fest including solo shows by Joy Cutler and Joseph Ahmed, produced by Cara Blouin.
In the meantime if you missed my two-hour Coast to Coast AM With George Noory appearance last month you can check it out here.
Many thanks for your continued passion and support,

Dear Friends, Just a quick note to let you know I’m going to be the primary guest on Coast to Coast AM on Friday night 4/17/15. I’m a longtime fan of this nationwide show so this is a dream come true for me. I’ll hopefully be talking about the screenplay I’m currently writing (LITTLE ROCK, a bio-pic of artist and Navy Ensign Vernon “Copy” Berg, the first officer to legally challenge the US military for anti-gay discrimination; my script is an adaptation of a memoir written by his partner at the time entitled Get Off My Ship: Ensign Berg v. the US Navy by E. Lawrence Gibson), BONEYARDS of course, my ancient hit play TESLA’S LETTERS and my recent experiences on my Amtrak Residency trip looking for ghosts in Chicago’s Bachelor’s Grove Cemetery and exploring the supernatural with the adorable Iowa ghost-hunting family I fell in with for a few days in Colorado (please go here to have your mind blown).
Coast to Coast AM is a North American (United States and Canada) late-night radio talk show that deals with a variety of topics but most frequently ones that relate to either the paranormal or conspiracy theories. It airs seven nights a week 1:00 a.m. – 5:00 a.m. EST. Originally created and hosted by Art Bell, since 2013 the program is hosted mainly by George Noory. Coast to Coast AM has a cumulative weekly audience of 2.75 million listeners, making it the most listened-to program in its time slot. It’s heard on nearly 570 stations in the U.S., Canada, Australia and Guam.
Film industry guests have included screenwriter Joe Eszterhas, screenwriter Laurice Molinari, veteran comedy director Tom Shadyac, Big Bang Theory executive producer Eric Kaplan, and others. The format consists of a combination of live callers and long format interviews. The subject matter covers unusual topics and is full of personal stories related to callers, junk science, pseudo experts and non-peer reviewed scientists. While program content is often focused on paranormal and fringe subjects, sometimes world-class scientists such as Michio Kaku and Brian Greene are featured in long format interviews. Topics discussed include the near-death experience, climate change, cosmology, quantum physics, remote viewing, hauntings, contact with extraterrestrials, psychic reading, metaphysics, science and religion, conspiracy theories, Area 51, crop circles, cryptozoology, Bigfoot, the Hollow Earth hypothesis, and science fiction literature, among others. Since the September 11, 2001 attacks, the events of that day (as well as alternate theories surrounding them) and current U.S. counter-terrorism strategy have also become frequent themes.

Many thanks for your continued interest and support, and I hope to see you on the radio next Friday night.
Thrilled that my Philadelphia “zeppelin” snapshot posted here yesterday is today’s Photo of the Day at Coast to Coast AM.
The last time this happened to me it caused quite an uproar.
REPOST – MY FIRST EVP SESSION IN 2013.
Dead people, y’all. Real live dead people strumming guitars and singing. No jokes, no tricks, video below.
In preparation for my upcoming Philly Fringe show BONEYARDS, in which I will most definitely use my antique ouija board as I have done in the past, I’ve been considering kicking things into the 21st century by making use of a Frank’s box, or spirit box, during the show to listen to EVPs (electronic voice phenomena). So a month ago I bought the popular P-SB7 and have had nothing but dead air every time I’ve tried it. I was about to send it back.
Then this past weekend while vacationing in a literal Cabin in the Woods I had a major Breakthrough while relaxing out on the deck. I spent a lot of time saying to the Frank’s box, “Okay Raudive voices, prove you’re intelligent. What’s 2 + 3?” I asked that over and over but just kept getting static. Finally when I was bored enough and just about to shut it off in frustration it shouted, “Five!” clear as a bell. Admittedly rattled I quickly shut it off.
Still in skeptic analytical mode, I stared at my acoustic guitar propped up in the corner and asked, (continue reading…)
“I am not used to seeing the kind of tracks in my back yard like the samples I’m attaching here. Any ideas? Looks BIG. Gulp.”
So read the email I received last week from my close friend S. with 4 photos attached (the one above was also a Coast to Coast AM Photo of the Day on 1/27/11). He lives in Franklin County, Ohio near Columbus, works in a highly visible profession and is too shy to post these images himself — but he’s also alarmed by the footprints he and his wife found in their back yard last week after the last big snowfall. Knowing of my keen interest in the ridiculous-yet-hard-to-explain, he sent them to me.
He’s been perusing BFRO’s site for sasquatch sightings in his area looking to make some kind of sense of this, but to no avail.
“The right track has blood on it — the right foot seems to indicate a foot injury,” his email continued. “We are kinda freaking out. We have spent hours combing through wild animal track books, trying to isolate and identify the tracks, hoping to come up with an explanation. WHOA. Freaking.
He says the tracks crossed through his yard and stopped at a large tree. Sadly there was no shivering juvenile squatch hiding in the tree when he looked up — but then where did it go? Did it fly away? Jersey devil? Mothman? My two cents — these aren’t sasquatch, Jersey devil or mothman prints; they’re clearly dogman prints. Perhaps it leapt from the tree onto another tree or onto his roof (he didn’t think to look there for more prints) and was gone. (UPDATE 1/27/11: I just searched and found this regarding Ohio’s “Loveland creature,” a reptilian spotted in 1955 and 1972, so I’m switching my opinion from dogman to lizardman.)
They’re real. It’s not a hoax. Your theory? He’s open to your explanations.
Welcome to YogaLeaks. So the other day I’m sitting on the bus from Borough 6 to Borough 1 minding my own business looking over people’s shoulders at what they’re reading, and there’s a woman sitting in front of me patiently writing something over and over again in a lined composition book. I can’t make out the words but I can tell it’s the same sentence repeating line after line. She flips through the book, presumably to check her count so far, and I see that it goes on for pages and pages and pages.
I subtly lean forward and squint harder at her neat cursive, and see that it readsI will receive $10,000 with ease! I will receive $10,000 with ease! I will receive $10,000 with ease!
again and again and again. It must have been hundreds of times. This is clearly a major, life-changing project for her. Now, I’ve listened to Coast to Coast AM enough times to know witchcraft when I see it. This was a textual version of a rain dance; that or she’s following up on a tip from some entrepreneurial self-help book.
I am struck by the small amount of money. Why not make it a million? I infer that she’s a simple, modest witch who sets realistic goals for the supernatural. But what strikes me most is that it doesn’t say “make” or “earn,” but receive. “I will receive $10,000,” as though the universe will be magically granting it if she writes it down enough times, sort of a secular version of legendary huckster-minister Reverend Ike’s money prayers (and if you’re ever visiting New York, forget St. Patrick’s Cathedral. You haven’t lived until you’ve visited Reverend Ike’s church uptown.)
A few minutes later I check in on her again and watch her flip through her many, many pages of money mantra to a section in the back with notes, apparently taken during a seminar. Here are the snippets I was able to catch:
free of strategy
free of judgement – write down some words you don’t like hearing (free of judgement)
concretize to actualize – make it real
have a thriving home practice: 10 clients per week
establish a network of other wellness professionals
be seen as an authority on any topic
I’m struck by that last line, which is similar to her money mantra; not “become” an authority on any topic, which is absurd enough, but “be seen as an authority.” This must be some entrepreneurial course on how to hoodwink people. Ironic that she’s training to be a wellness professional. Is she perhaps a yoga or Pilates instructor?
Beware, wellness consumers. Even new age practictioners, even your friendly, neighborhood Namaste-spouting yoga teacher, just might be working an angle, or more to the point, working you like a limbered up voodoo doll.
