Alameda Naval Air Museum (7/26/14): “Yes, We Are”

This is our last round of questions for our last EVP session of a very eventful night. Laura J's group was in the nice sitting area in the back of the Library. You'll hear me ask, "Are you sad that we're going to be leaving soon?" I hear a response to my question. Note: I have reduced the background hiss (this is a 2nd generation recording) and amplified the sounds so you can hear it better. Thanks, you guys (and women). I live in Alameda, so I'll stop by on another day to talk with Read more [...]

Alameda Naval Air Museum (7/26/14): While on Break

This was recorded during our break in the Crows Nest during the investigation. My DVR was on the table where I was sitting. You can hear Laura J talking and then what is a very clear and direct EVP. It's an EVP because no one around me said anything, none of us would have said it, and I don't think anyone was thinking it at the time. Give a listen and let me know what you hear. (Good thing I didn't hear this at the time!) Read more [...]

Alameda Naval Air Museum (7/26/14): Someone in the Chapel….

This clip is from when Laura J's group was in the Chapel and setting up. First of all, you'll hear a low hum in the background because the electric organ is on. You'll also hear Mike noodling around on the organ. Debbie and Laura J are also softly talking in the background. In the middle of all that, I can hear a male voice saying something very clearly. He sounds a bit desperate. It's sad for me to imagine that there's a male spirit hanging out in the Chapel waiting for help. I wish Read more [...]

McConaghy House (6/14/14): In the Music Room

Sorry for the delay in posting these clips, but life and work intervened. It's only just now that I'm getting around to posting my clips from the McConaghy House which I investigated on 6/14/14. My group (John, Keena, Tery, Chris, Mike, Nick (docent), and me) started the night off in the Music Room. On the surface of it, things seemed pretty quiet but I was able to record these possible EVPs. Clip 1: In this clip, you'll hear Chris finish her sentence with "front parlor," followed by Tery Read more [...]

Meek Mansion (6/28/14): Pre-Investigation Clips

When I'm on an investigation, I have a DVR recording the entire time I'm at the site, from the moment I get there until the moment I leave. It's part of my protocol. This includes before the investigation begins. All of these clips were recorded in the Carriage House prior to the start of the investigation. I had my DVR on the table in front of me. As you'll (hopefully) hear, there was quite a lot of activity before the investigation began. Clip 1: This is interesting and involves 2 different Read more [...]

Meek Mansion (6/28/14): Miscellaneous Places

This set of clips were recorded in different parts of the house. For each clip, I've identified the location. Clip 1 (Basement): This is a funny one. Marcy asks the spirits, "Are we a more exciting group than the last group that was down here?" because our group knew that Laura J's group heard a lot of EVPs in the Basement. My group weren't really hearing anything. The funny part is that the spirits answer her--at least 4 that I can count. Note: I've amplified the part between 3 and 7 seconds Read more [...]

Meek Mansion (6/28/14): DVR 2 in the Kitchen

While my group was in the Dining Room, Jim kept seeing shadows moving in the Kitchen doorway. Jim was seeing so many shadows that I placed my second DVR (DVR 2) on the floor in the Kitchen doorway to see (hear) if I could catch any EVPs while we continued on in the DR. The full recording of this session is just over 30 minutes long. (So 6 possible EVPs in 30 minutes, maybe the Meek was more active than I thought!) All of these clips come from DVR 2. The first 3 clips were recorded on DVR 2 Read more [...]

Meek Mansion (6/28/14): Dining Room

Sorry for the delay in posting clips but work intervened. I've listened to all of my recordings and will be posting quite a few new clips over the next day or so. The overview for all my clips is this: While not as active (in terms of catching EVPs) as my first visit to the Meek on 5/24/14, I still caught a lot of them. These are from the Dining Room. Clip 1: For some reason, there were a lot of hairpins on the carpet in the Dining Room. It was an odd sight and Cathy asked, "Where did Read more [...]

McConaghy House (6/14/14): More from the Carriage House

The first set of clips are all 1st generation recordings caught during the group session in the Carriage House at the end of the evening. I have another set of EVPs from this session, all recorded from Laura J's playback, posted under the title, "From the Group Session in the Carriage House." Clip 1: You'll hear Laura J say, "But he hasn't gotten back to me." I then hear a male voice whisper, "What? Wow." The closest male to me was Mike, who was standing opposite me. Mike: Is it possible Read more [...]

Meek Mansion (5/24/14): Stray Clips

Here are some clips from different parts of Meek Mansion. Clip 1: While in the Servants' Quarters on the 2nd floor, Chris felt very strongly that someone at some time had jumped out one of the windows. This led her to ask if someone had jumped. The docent said she'd heard that someone had done that. Diane asked, "Was it a servant who jumped out of the window or just someone else who worked in the house?" In the middle of this, I hear a voice at the 4 second mark saying, "Servant jumped [garbled]." Clip Read more [...]
