Halloween is just around the corner, and to mark the spookiest time of the year, we've exhumed three classic WKMS ghost stories from the archives! Todd Hatton takes us along on a ghost hunt at a historic Paducah landmark, The Hotel Metropolitan. In another story, Todd tells of a cellar door that won't stay closed. And David Weatherly relates his run-in with a spectral spectator. Listen if you dare... Mwa hah hah haaa...

Happy Halloween from WKMS!

David Weatherly works at WKMS part-time while holding down a full-time job as a School Based Speech Language Pathologist. He has been with WKMS for over 20 years off and on and has a lifelong interest in music of all kinds which he pours into all of his shows. He was the host of the jazz fusion, chillout and groove show Jazz Horizons on Friday nights and now hosts a similar show Friday nights called House Blend. He also hosts the summer seasonal show, Sounds of the Silver Screen.
Matt Markgraf joined the WKMS team as a student in January 2007. He's served in a variety of roles over the years: as News Director March 2016-September 2019 and previously as the New Media & Promotions Coordinator beginning in 2011. Prior to that, he was a graduate and undergraduate assistant. He is currently the host of the international music show Imported on Sunday nights at 10 p.m.
Todd Hatton hails from Paducah, Kentucky, where he got into radio under the auspices of the late, great John Stewart of WKYX while a student at Paducah Community College. He also worked at WKMS in the reel-to-reel tape days of the early 1990s before running off first to San Francisco, then Orlando in search of something to do when he grew up. He received his MFA in Creative Writing at Murray State University. He vigorously resists adulthood and watches his wife, Angela Hatton, save the world one plastic bottle at a time.
