DEVIL RADIO

Phenomenon…An extraordinary, impressive, significant, unusual, unaccountable occurrence or fact that is perceptible by the senses.

That’s what I would call the Devil Radio incident…a phenomenon.

The incident happened a few years ago. I’ve always listened to the radio, late at night. My favorite program to hear, is Coast 2 Coast. It comes on at midnight, in our time zone, and topics range from conspiricy theories, ghosts, numerology, UFOs, bigfoot, and all types of weird and wonderful things you could ever imagine. They have guests from time to time, that speak on their experiences.

This night, they said they were going to interview a person that claimed he was the Devil.

Well, like I mentioned, there are some pretty far out there topics covered on this program, some believable, some not so much.  However, this was one I really didn’t want to hear…seemed too scary, to me. I kept the radio on, right up until the time came for the interview, then I turned it off. I keep my transistor radio by the pillow, so I can just reach up and turn it off if I want to, without getting out of bed.

So, I tried turning it off…but it wouldn’t stop playing the radio program.

I switched it on and off again, just to make sure…and I was sure it was turned off. But, it kept playing. I turned the dial to different stations, all across the dial, and the same show was playing on all the stations. Meanwhile, the interview was starting, and I was hearing what I didn’t want to hear.

In the end, I removed the batteries from the radio, and that seemed to work. No more Devil person talking. I have no idea why this happened, or how. I don’t really know what such a thing would be called in paranormal terms, as I’ve never heard of it happening to anyone else.

It never happened again, even though I listened to many more programs after that night. Maybe my radio was possessed by the Devil that one time? Who knows…

[Intro: Elvis Presley]
Return to sender!
Return to sender!

[Verse 1: Elvis Presley]
I gave a letter to the postman
He put it in his sack
Bright in early next morning
He brought my letter back

[Verse 2: Elvis Presley]
She wrote upon it
Return to sender, address unknown
No such number, no such zone
We had a quarrel, a lover’s spat
I write I’m sorry but my letter keeps coming back

[Verse 3: Elvis Presley]
So then I dropped it in the mailbox
And sent it special D

Bright in early next morning
It came right back to me

[Bridge: Elvis Presley]
She wrote upon it
Return to sender, address unknown
No such person, no such zone

This time I’m gonna take it myself
And put it right in her hand
And if it comes back the very next day
Then I’ll understand the writing on it

[Outro: Elvis Presley]
Return to sender, address unknown
No such number, no such zone
Return to sender
Return to sender
Return to sender
Return to sender

Now, here’s another one. I actually chose this one first, but then found someone else had already picked this one. Oh well, I figure we all have lots of different readers on our blogs, so I’m including this one, too.

***

“P. S. I Love You”, by the Beatles, was released as the B side of the single, “Love Me Do”, in 1962 (UK), and 1964 (US). It was credited to the John Lennon/Paul McCartney team, as the writers, but I read that it was mostly the creation from Paul McCartney. It is on the Parlophone, and Tollie 9008 labels.

This song I found is a cover of the Beatles song. I found that most all of the Beatles song videos have been removed from Youtube.

I don’t know who did this cover, but it’s very good, in my opinion, and the photos included are nice for remembering. It also fits the prompt of writing letters.

Hope you enjoy going down memory lane with this one!

*[Chorus 1]
As I write this letter
Send my love to you

Remember that I’ll always
Be in love with you

[Chorus 2]
Treasure these few words till we’re together
Keep all my love forever
P.S. I love you
You, you, you

[Chorus 3]
I’ll be coming home again to you, love
And till the day I do, love
P.S. I love you
You, you, you

[Chorus 1]
As I write this letter
Send my love to you
Remember that I’ll always
Be in love with you

[Chorus 2]
Treasure these few words till we’re together
Keep all my love forever
P.S. I love you
You, you, you

As I write this letter
Send my love to you

Remember that I’ll always
Be in love with you

[Chorus 3]
I’ll be coming home again to you, love
And till the day I do, love
P.S. I love you
You, you, you

JJJ & SOCS – WOOD

Standard

JJJ & SOCS – WOOD jjj-2017 socsbadge2016-17

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS and #JusJoJan Jan. 28/17

***

Today is a combo of the Just Jot It January & Stream of Consciousness Saturday challenges. The topic to use is the word ‘wood or would’.

***

Would you believe I like to do wood burning? I like to make designs in wood, with the hot styling tool, whatever you call it. It has different tips to use for different designs you might want to try, even for writing words. I got my first wood burning set when I was a kid. I guess, back then, it wasn’t considered a dangerous toy for a kid to mess around with. I don’t remember getting burned by it. I have done some projects fairly recently, too. I do like the smell of the burning wood.

We don’t have a fireplace, so we don’t burn any wood that way. We have burned mesquite wood on the grill, though. That smells really good, too, and gives the food a nice flavor.

Here’s a song I remember hearing many times in the past. It’s about a wooden heart. This one is from 1961, sung by Joe Dowell. It was a cover of the song done by Elvis Presley, in 1960. I think this is the one I remember hearing the most. 🙂
