The channel is fictional. Its a sort of folk horror thing with a really good 70s vibe. They made it look like it really was from that era. I recall tv in the 70s being just like this.
Oh, ooops, I fell for it

Check out the Flixton werewolf folks…

A little bit of cryptozoological tourism...

The West Virginia Bigfoot Museum and Flatwoods Monster Museum


I always enjoy watching footage of actual locations where sightings occurred and what they look like now.

I do believe the song was sung by Bill Oddie.
So great to see that again... and yes, we all did the "squirrel shit" version in the playground!

The determination of occult textual identities has evolved beyond editing and interpreting of key texts, but rather tracing commonalities, typology, and cultural relevance to contemporary bibliographic sources. Particularly, it populates aspects of magical commerce, proprietary accumulation, and recognition of posthumous spaces. It has also revealed the marginalization and failure of scholarship to recognize specific voices in occult book history. In this brief webinar, Kim Schwenk traces the nature of occult identities formed through marginalia, provenance, and art and design in print, with an effort to advocate for diverse narratives. Kim will be using examples of inscriptions, bookplates, and design features, intrinsic to occult practices and identities. For catalogers, bibliographers, and bibliophiles, the conversation will outline the need for advanced bibliographic description and cultural context for ‘hidden’ creators and relationships within occult materials to empower collection development and collaborative scholarship. Kim Schwenk (MLIS) is a rare book cataloger at UC San Diego, Special Collections & Archives Library and an antiquarian bookseller with Lux Mentis, Booksellers. She has a specialization in American and European witchcraft history, history of early printed occult texts, and bibliographic studies of magical curses using plants and objects. She also is active in occult sciences and the occult book community both as a researcher and a practitioner. As of 2019, she is researching “occult ex libris,” otherwise known as “hex libris” or occult bookplates.

A great hour long documentary from the 'Small Town Monsters' crew on the creepy Bridgewater Triangle. A mysterious area in Massachusetts known for Bigfoot sightings, other mysterious cryptids, ghostly apparitions as well as being a place of mysterious disappearances and being a dumping place for many dead bodies over the years.
This is rather well done:

Is that parody or satire?

This channel was good 3-4 years ago, but recently has become too political.

hmm I heard years ago that certain frequency bands can get bounced around the Earth's ionosphere for YEARS... hmm.... Sounds like every "contact" was made in a 3-day time period around the same time of day? Hmm also, while the voice was identified as Angela, we have no idea who Angela was. At no point was there actual communication. Yeah makes it seem to me like he was listening to a bounce of a transmission and not actually talking to anyone, ghost or otherwise.

I can't stop watching this tremendously strange musical horror weirdness - Possibly In Michigan!
BY CECELIA CONDIT A musical horror story about two young women who are stalked through a shopping mall by a the cannibal named Arthur. He follows them home, and here the victims become the aggressors. It is a story of friendship, courage, frailty and fears that will not go away.
