It was the Famous Ghost Stories record. My late brother and I were first introduced to the stories via the “Headless Horseman” and “The Hitch Hiker” singles that were on the backs of (I think) Honeycomb cereal. That was so cool, that these stories – with their eerie sounds and all – could come to us on the back of a cereal box. We wore those out, and soon found that they were also on a long-player called “Famous Ghost Stories,” which my parents bought for us. Time and time again, we listened to those terrifying tales. Your dad brought them to life for us. My brother died 20 years ago, and listening to these stories with him is still one of my fondest memories of good times. A few years ago I bought as near mint copy of the album as I could find, and digitized/cleaned it to upload to my Google Play so that I’d have it for all time. I also made a CD out of it with a cover and all to give to my folks, who loved it (they recalled that my brother could recite Mr. Denning’s version of “The Headless Horseman” from start to finish without a hitch).

I started a podcast a while back (link in my name I think) that includes sounds and music from a video game, and it didn’t occur to me how much I had pulled from your grandfather until my wife said, “this is kind of like that album you listen to from time to time.” I was astonished I hadn’t recognized it immediately that it’s what I was trying to do – bring an audio story to life through sounds and music.

Your grandfather obviously had a huge influence on me. I wish he had done more of these. But thank you so much for creating this site. It finally allowed me to thank someone for his amazing talent and for hours and hours of enjoyment and wonderful memories. Cheers.

She was a music teacher in Winston-Salem, NC in the seventies. I met her while working at Duncan Music Company. You must be kin. I helped chaperone a group of her students to perform at Adelphi University. Please give her my absolute best.

For context; I grew up on several of his horror records, wrote about his work several times on my old blog “Scar Stuff”, and made a stop motion video for the H-A-LL-O-W-EE-N song a few years ago.

I actually tried to track him down several times (dating back to the late 1990’s), but was never able to get a concrete contact. I was sorry to hear about his passing before I had a chance to thank him for the joy his work had given me.

So given all of the above, I’m simply amazed to find such a gigantic trove of content — thanks so much for compiling and sharing it all.
