January 20, 2015 03:10 PM PST
This episode promises to scare the hell out of you as BTE Radio welcomes Author Bob Cranmer to talk about his families terrifying experiences living with “The Demon of Brownsville Road.”
Eric Altman is joined with week by our next contestant in the BTE Radio Co-Host contest Marie Samuels. Eric and Marie welcome Former Allegheny County Commissioner, Politician and Author Bob Cranmer.
Bob Cranmer has been involved with government since 1990 as an elected official or as a government relations specialist. He represents a spectrum of different of clients, which include governmental entities such as:
Allegheny County Housing Authority, and the Redevelopment Authority of Allegheny and Fayette Counties, Non-profits such as: Family Links, the Pittsburgh Opera, Ohio Valley General Hospital, and the River City Brass Band.
Corporations which have included: Ammann & Whitney Engineering, L. Robert Kimball & Associates, Mistick Construction, and Bombardier Transportation.
Bob’s area of expertise and “bi-partisan” relationship management includes local city and county governments, as well as the entire state government in Harrisburg.
Bob is a native of Pittsburgh, growing up in the borough of Brentwood where he still resides with his wife Lesa. He graduated from Brentwood High School in 1974 and Duquesne University in 1978, upon which he was commissioned a second lieutenant in the United States Army. Bob went on to serve nine years in the active army, several of which as a Company Commander in the 101st Airborne Division. He also served in the United States Army Reserve with the rank of Major during the Persian Gulf War commanding a Military Intelligence unit. Bob’s employment has included positions with AT&T Bell Laboratories, AT&T Corporate Marketing, and Communications Technologies Group, LTD. Kimball & Associates, and most recently the Harrisburg lobbying firm of Pugliese Associates, managing the Pittsburgh office.
In politics, Bob was elected to Brentwood Council in 1991 where he initiated an economic development corporation, which generated over 30 million dollars of new development. It now serves several municipalities and is a model for other communities. In 1995 he was elected Allegheny County Commissioner where he served as chairman of the board. As a Commissioner Bob ushered in sweeping changes to county government, reducing county taxes in excess of 50 million dollars per year, reducing county personnel by 18%, reorganizing county government from forty-one departments to six, creating the position of County Manager, a county 911 system, and forming a city/county economic development organization which generated several billion dollars worth of new projects and related economic development.
He led the effort to establish home rule in Allegheny County, which created the position of County Executive and County Council. His other notable accomplishments include the construction of PNC Park, Heinz Field, and the new David L. Lawrence Convention Center. He was also a driving force behind the creation of the Allegheny County Airport Authority to manage the Pittsburgh International Airport.
In 1988 Bob bought what he thought would be his dream home in the Pittsburgh suburb where he was raised. In his book the Demon of Brownsville Rd, Bob recounts the harrowing details of the evil presence that tormented his family and the epic spiritual war he fought to save everything he held dear. Strange activity began just a few short weeks after the family moved in. Cranmer said the strange but seemingly harmless activity continued for a number of years before turning dark and violent.
At the advice of his mother and to allay his own creepy feelings about the house, Cranmer had a Roman Catholic priest perform a ritual blessing on the place. During the blessing his oldest son stood in the doorway in the form of an "X" and blocked the priest from entering his bedroom, he revealed.
The entity's activity slowly became more sinister and interactive. Cranmer remembered being harassed on a daily basis with physical attacks. Eventually the activity was more than the family could take and the Pittsburgh Catholic Diocese became involved which resulted in almost daily mass being held in the home along with multiple exorcisms. Join us this Sunday night as we talk with Bob about his terrifying encounters while living in a dream home that turned into a nightmare as we talk about his book, Demon of Brownsville Road.

August 03, 2014 12:31 PM PDT
Lon, Amy and Eric are back from vacation this week to kick off the dog days of summer as we welcome Author and Haunted Survivor Andrea Perron. Andrea and her family survived 10 years living in a haunted farm house in Rhode Island and their story became the inspiration for the box office hit movie "The Conjuring." Tune in this Sunday night as we welcome Andre Perron and hear the true story of what her family dealt with for those 10 long years as we talk about her three books House of Darkness; House of light. This week, live on BTE Radio.
In June of 1970 she found a glorious farm, then she and my father moved mountains to buy what was known as the old Arnold Estate; two-hundred acres of land with a big barn and a farmhouse; plenty of space to spread out and explore Nature. It was the perfect place to raise a family, according to the owner, though he failed to disclose a crucial element of the experience he endured as an occupant. The day we moved in, he told my father: “…leave the lights on at night.” A rather cryptic message. Thus began an incredible odyssey; a supernatural excursion through dimensions of time and space as the history of its characters from the ages began to reveal themselves to seven mortals who could not conceive of and never anticipated such events transpiring in our lives.
For almost a decade our family lived among the dead. There we came to understand that we are not alone and there is something beyond mortal existence. I graduated from high school in 1976 and attended Chatham College in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Graduating in 1980 with an interdisciplinary degree in Philosophy and English, it was during my senior year when my mother announced the sale of the farm was pending. I was heart broken. In spite of the trials, it was “home” and I loved it. Returning to Rhode Island, we were there only a few weeks before relocating to Georgia; long enough to pack and say goodbye. It was over. Though we abandoned our place in the country, it never left us. Memory is powerful.
I’ve spent my life since engaging in a variety of endeavors. Georgia did not suit me. After seven years I went home to R.I. Though I have always been a writer, I have likewise explored my own creative abilities. As a professional singer, songwriter, musician and actor, my time has been full of adventures and interesting characters. For more than twenty years I was a cast member with The Theatre Company of Rhode Island, performing on the stage of The Assembly Theater, the historic centerpiece of Harrisville. For the last ten years I lived in R.I. I was employed as a youth counselor at Harmony Hill School in Chepachet and lived in the village of Harmony, in a quaint cottage on Waterman Lake, also known as paradise on a pond.
In 2007 I began writing the manuscript which has now evolved into the trilogy “House of Darkness House of Light” and relocated (again) to Georgia to be with my family while embarking on such a major project involving all of them as well. It has proved to be quite an excursion in its own right, spawning some nightmares while exhuming our memories of the dead. Often painful, it has been a healing process as well, as each revisited a past impacting our present, clearly mapping the future of a family. There was no escaping unscathed, though we thought we has successfully done so at the time. This is a story whose time has come. Many have spoken or written about fragments of the story for decades. Now is the time to tell the whole truth about what happened in a house alive with death as we lived an illuminating decade of life. It is a tale worth telling because it is true. Time has come because we are ready to disclose our secrets and the world is ready to receive them.7/6/2014 Stacey Jones The Ghost Cop

This week, Eric, Lon and Amy welcome the Ghost Cop, Stacey Jones to BTE Radio.

She began investigating Haunted Locations in 1984 and started her group Central NY Ghost Hunters in 1995 after responding to an “unexplained noise” complaint from a single mom of 3 young boys.

The mother and boys fled the house, and Stacey vowed she would help those who needed it and a “Ghost Cop” was born.
