Tonight: Elvis, Johnny Cash & Patsy Cline!

Haunted Music Hall

from Sploid

A group of intrepid ghost-hunters have confirmed that the Shreveport Municipal Auditorium is haunted.

The Louisiana Spirits, a paranormal investigation club, spent the night in the famous auditorium and recorded four hours of spooky footage with digital cameras, video cameras, and sound-recording equipment. They were out to capture video of glowing orbs and audio recordings of Electronic Voice Phenomena, which skeptics describe as "the alleged communication by spirits through tape recorders and other electronic devices."

Samples of the recordings are available here. The group claims you can hear voices saying "I love Johnny Cash" and clapping.

The Shreveport Municipal Auditorium was once home to the Louisiana Hayride, a radio program that hosted country legends Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, and Tex Ritter, as well as Elvis Presley.

But people used the auditorium for more than just musical hoedowns. A nuclear fallout shelter and the city morgue once occupied the basement.

In addition to catching muddy recordings of background noise, the Spirits also caught a whiff of flowers and baby powder that quickly came and left.

"If any building here in this town has spirits," commented Johnny Wessler, executive director of the Friends of the Municipal Auditorium, "this one does."

Another group, ORION Paranormal, visited the auditorium after the Louisiana Spirits to record footage for an upcoming documentary.
