Haunted Memphis/Graceland

Have you toured Graceland, visited Memphis, and felt something just wasn't right? Maybe the hairs on the back of your neck stood at attention, maybe you heard singing coming from the second floor at Graceland; did the jukebox at Earnestine Hazel's restaurant, in Memphis, randomly play your favorite song?

More than 50 million people visit Tennessee each year, Graceland being the #1 state attraction, with more than a 1/3 of tourists reporting odd happenings. Tennessee is ranked as the most haunted state in the USA with Memphis leading as the most haunted city, right behind New Orleans.

Many stories have been passed down since Elvis' death; Elvis speaking to his dead twin, Jesse Garon, in the darkest corners of his bedroom, and the spirit of his mother, Glady's, reportedly still roams Graceland.

45% of Americans claim to believe in Ghosts. And as Elvis fans, Dan and I are most interested in the happenings that surround Graceland and Memphis. With personal experiences fresh in our minds, and stories from mutual fan/friends still ringing in our ears, we felt Halloween was as good as a time as ever to explore the unexplainable. 

In the spirit of the season, we hope you enjoy this Blue Suede Lounge podcast, "Haunted Memphis/Graceland." And don't for Part Two "Personal Hauntings," as we discuss the odd happenings in the haunted halls of Wade Linn Studios, WRGG,  and our home in Winchester, Virginia.

And by all means, if you have a haunted story to share, please do so in the comments below! May everyone have a safe and spooky time trick or treating.
