    Strange stories uk. Rolling Stones, murder, terror and corruption in Sussex

    Strange stories uk. Rolling Stones, murder, terror and corruption in Sussex

    This is something of a ramble. After becoming famous, the Rolling Stones developed links with Sussex. Their rock star behaviour upset some people who seemed determined to have them sent to jail, this did not end as expected, one drug raid pushing up the sales of Mars bars by 8% after claims it was used as a sex toy. 
    Others were trying to steal from the Rolling Stones. Brian Jones seemed to be the vulnerable weak link who was ousted from the band and it doesn't seem much of a secret now that he was killed, probably by accident by those supposedly working for him. 
    I suppose it isn't too much of a surprised to discover that corrupt Metropolitan police were also involved or there was a climate of fear after the so called Brian Jones suicide to cover the truth and cost the life of another young woman who it was thought was about to tell the story to the newspapers.

    Strange Stories, Murder in Chichester Harbour

    Strange Stories, Murder in Chichester Harbour

    This story takes place during August 1969. Alec Keen who described himself as a self employed chartered yacht owner was desperate for money and claiming that he found it impossible to have a relationship with anybody over the age of 27. 
    Keen told police his wife was missing from the yacht they were staying on while he had taken a dinghy to go to the local pub, The ship Inn at West Itchenor. 
    This is one of two episodes that took place in this area during the summer of 1969. The next podcast is about events that happened just a few miles away and were connected to the death of Brian Jones guitarist Brian Jones.

    Strange Stories: Kent Serial Killer thwarted part 2.

    Strange Stories: Kent Serial Killer thwarted part 2.

    This is part 2 of the story of how the police prevented Mark Brown becoming a serial killer of sex workers. Brown killed his mistress Leah Ware whose body was never found.
    There is a mistake in the title as Mark Brown lived in East Sussex although the Kent police were involved in the case from the beginning.

    Please be advised that this podcast is recorded in one take with no editing.

    Strange stories : Kent serial killer thwarted. Part 1

    Strange stories : Kent serial killer thwarted. Part 1

      I think it will become obvious that Mark Brown was going to become a serial killer targeting woman who were operating as sex workers. He was going to be detected by automatic number plate recognition and cell phone tracking and the like, to allow the police to build a case against him.
    Brown's mind seemed to have been turned by a combination of the death of his parents, violent pornography on the internet and the isolation of lockdown allowing him to focus on his dark side. This podcast tells of the murder and disposal of the body of Alex Morgan, a single mother trying to build a better life for her family.
    This case has only recently finished at Hove Crown Court, on 1 December 2022. Brown is due for sentencing on 13 January 2023. 
    I will put out part 2 shortly. Please be advised that this podcast is recorded in one take with no editing.

    Strange Stories UK: Halloween 2022, The Story of Bobbie Newlove

    Strange Stories UK: Halloween 2022, The Story of Bobbie Newlove

    This story was uploaded at 10:00 pm 31 October 2022. Another story from the Journals of the Society of Psychical Research. This story regards the death of a young boy, Bobby Newlove,  who was said to communicate through the medium Gladys Osborne Leonard. Nothing much happens and  hardly a story to scare or excite but one to think about. But it was known as 'The problem of the Pipes' that was finally solved, according to some, via seances. 
    It is set in the town of Nelson, Lancashire. The story of Bobbie Newlove that died of diphtheria. Bobbie was much loved and his family tried to contact with him after his death.
    I wanted to put up a halloween podcast on 31 October although this is the last podcast that I am posting for a few weeks. I will be back in December .
    Please be advised that there is no editing and that I stumble over words and apparently make weird sounds with my mouth, which in listening back seems to be true. So soz for that.

Wyntersun ,

Unapologetically raw and blooming good !

Great podcast, well researched ! And I like that it’s just a guy interested in subjects and tells a good story. Instead of some highly edited shows with loads of filler. This is a great listen.

O-Po ,

Great content but please let me help you

There are some really simple things you could do to completely change the experience for people listening to this.

You’ve clearly put of lot of working into researching and writing these episodes so it’s a shame that people are turned away but very fixable things.

I couldn’t think of how else to reach you but first, please buy a pop-shield. Very cheap and will make a world of difference. If you are using one then work on mic position and gain levels and mic control. Also very quick and easy.

Secondly, and for the love of god, use a noise gate.

And plese drink some water before recording.

Yes, there could be more flow to the delivery with a couple of practices before recording and you could put a bit of time into cutting stumbles and long pauses and clicks etc. but those do take time. The things I’ve mentioned don’t.

This is all meant of out respect for the work.

Spit n Sawdust, but…

…I can’t take it any more.

As much as it’s well researched, I can’t take any more of this podcast. Would it kill you to rehearse before hitting record, man?

The mispronounced common words were the tipping point for me and I’ve unsubscribed.

Sorry.
