Bobby Mackey’s Music World is northern Kentucky’s longest running live music nightclub. For nearly forty years, this honky-tonk has hosted singing, dancing and drinking. But before the bar was opened up on this spot, a slaughterhouse was run here. A pit in the basement leads to the nearby Licking River and the blood and other waste from the slaughterhouse was dumped down this pit into the river. The building has been connected to murders, occult rituals and hauntings for years. Some claim that the pit itself leads straight to Hell. Join us and the hosts of Hillbilly Horror Stories Podcast, Jerry and Tracy Paulley, as we explore the history and hauntings of Bobby Mackey’s Music World. The Moment in Oddity was suggested by listener Emily Margaret and features the Strowger Telephone Switch and This Month in History features President Ford issuing a Proclamation against EO 9066.
In this special, Diane and Denise discuss two legendary creatures that appear on New Years Eve: Mari Lwyd and Namahage. Then they explore the history and hauntings of two bars in the town of Roslyn in Washington state. These bars are the Pioneer Restaurant & Sody-licious Bar and The Brick Tavern. Have a safe and fun New Years Eve!
