Episode 6 The Mystery Reels

Episode 6 The Mystery Reels

Not only are the reels which I have been collecting for two decades strange and filled with mysterious recordings but this podcast has now become a very engaged part of the weirdness which surrounds itself. Ever since I was a teenager I have quested to find a long lost Michigan tourist trap called Mystery Ridge. I collected vintage postcard, bumper stickers and flyers from Mystery Ridge and hoped one day to visit the place although I knew in my heart it was probably long gone. Mystery Ridge contained the usual tilted house and strange phenomena mostly associated with the more well known Mystery Spots which can be found across America. Mystery Ridge came into existence in the early 1960’s when America was overrun with roadside attractions but as the years rolled by cars ceased to roll into the parking lot and Mystery Ridge shut its doors in 1982. Years ago I did indeed discover the location of long abandon property which once was home to Mystery Ridge and unfortunately most of it was destroyed. Fast forward to this year. I finally decide to release a new podcast which focuses on my collection of reel to reel tapes and their weird recordings; during a bizarre series of family events I have received two reels which are marked “Mystery Ridge”.
The synchronicity of these events is just one more reason why I will continue to produce this podcast.
Now for your pleasure enjoy a short but sweet episode and perhaps a quick visit to the past and a place called Mystery Ridge.
Let my descent into madness begin.

  1. So sorry to hear about all the misfortunes, but glad that everyone is doing okay. These episodes are getting weirder. The procurement of the tapes, the same theme music, wow! Personally I think how astoundingly mind blowing to have things like that happen. To me, it’s like little bread crumbs being left out on a trail to follow. I call it universal connect the dots. It sounds like your longtime desire to find Mystery Ridge manifested.

  2. I’m so sorry to hear about your family’s health problems. I’m happy that they are doing better. I’m so incredibly sad to hear about Sosy. My heart goes out to you in your grief. I like the background music I think it’s rather soothing. It sounded like an interesting place too bad you couldn’t go there in its heyday. Perhaps the Mystery Ridge reappearance and your personal travails lately are are trying to tell you something. Slow down? Reevaluate? Make peace with something? Of course those are just my ideas at 3:30 in the morning :) Try not to worry about all this and perhaps the answer will just reveal itself at some point.

  3. I submitted a detailed comment on March 31 but it didn’t get posted. I guess it got real lost during moderation ha ha. My new comment is as follows: very interesting I look forward to the next bit of aural strangeness. :)

  4. Wow! What…actually happened at Mystery Ridge? What did people do there? This is like something in a Daniel Clowes comic. It would not be out of place in “Like A Velvet Glove Cast In Iron”. Fantastic, really loving these podcasts, just discovered em. Keep up the great work?
