Halloween with KLRU Q Featuring Strange Town

Get into the Halloween “spirit” with KLRU Q beginning at 8:55 pm on Friday, October 31. KLRU Q will be airing three episodes of Strange Town, where Mark and Billy will take you on a voyage through the history of unsettled stories that are left behind at haunted locations in Texas. Do spirits exist with the living? If so, are these lingering energies willing to communicate from beyond?

The first episode of Strange Town takes a trip to Galveston Island to investigate the majestic Hotel Galvez. Are the stories of a lost soul searching for her lover true? Are orphans that were killed in a hurricane still wandering the halls?

Following at 9:25 pm, a two-part episode begins at the Austin Pizza Garden. A building with over 130 years of history where multiple entities have made themselves known to the employees and guests. Then, they investigate Austin’s Inn at Pearl Street, a once abandoned home turned modern-day Bed & Breakfast. Guests report shadows, apparitions, and other unexplained activity.

The last episode of Strange Town at 9:55 pm investigates the most haunted building in Seguin, Texas, the Magnolia Hotel. This 170-year-old establishment first opened its doors to weary travelers in 1844 and since then has experienced many tragedies and deaths within its walls and is said to be inhabited by 13 unsettled spirits. Which ones will Mark and Billy encounter?

We hope you join us for this haunting adventure only on KLRU Q!
