A Ghost That Doesn't Like Double Glazing

Theres a radio show round my area that is really good for halloween it tells you loads of stories involving ghost, demons and other freaky stuff. I was just remembered of two stories that really stood out to me a few years ago. The first one was a woman who installed double glazing on her house she had never experienced any type of paranormal activity before. That night she went to bed she heard a type of banging and she heard it every night she got a friend in who was involved with paranormal stuff and she set up a recording device downstairs and that night heard the banging again and got up the next day and listened to the tape. The tape played was really freaky it was even played on the radio it freaked me out it was the sound of an old man groaning banging the window open and shut! They done some research on the house and an old man died in the house and apparently didn't like the change of the windows. I heard that a few years ago so I missed out some parts so if anyone has heard that before add some missing parts if any were missing.

The second story that stood out to me was this guy from norway who had lost his wife and kids he phoned up his sister telling her he was gonna kill himself to be with his wife and kids. He shot himself while on the phone to her answering machine and they played this on the radio every part then at the end you could hear some voices and translated into english said something along the lines of "Comeon were all here waiting for you". His sister said it sounded like his wife and this stood out for me because as soon as the recording finished my radio switched off and it freaked me out. Anyway I was reminded of these so I thought I posted them if I find the recordings on the net I'll post them here as well.

Are these stories true, can they be verified?

If not, then yes, they have a creepy factor.

If they are - then as for the first one, what you said on acidhead's thread about ghosts not liking change makes it pretty believeable, especially due to the nature of the activity relating closely to the old man who died there.

As for the second one, it's important to remember that it's possible for over-active imaginations to transform random sounds on a bad tape into a voice and words. However, if there's no way that this was the case, then I don't think it's terribly likely that it was really his wife. Of course, there's many theories about where we go when we die, and who knows; they might have gone to heaven or some other wonderful place, and wanted him to join them! But still - what kind of a wife would encourage her husband to kill himself? Not so loving, methinks. I hate to refer to a television programme here, but it's a good (albeit fictional) example to explain my point. Do any Buffy watchers remember in either season 6 or 7, when an evil force took the form of Tara and appeared to Willow, encouraging her to kill herself? The point is; who's to say it was really his wife and not some bad evil demony thing tempting him to commit suicide

Either way, interesting read. Thanks Mikomi

you know what, I had a similar experience when I was a young girl around 14...

I was recording songs on to a tape and when I went to play it back a whispering voice came on and said margaret ann... Which is my mom's name.
I played it back and played it back but it still said it so i wasnt hearing things, i ran to get my mom and she thought it was me who made the voice, but it wasn't, so she just laughed at me......
Later on in the same house, I came to see and hear different things... My friend ever heard a voice when she was at my house, she went home cuz she was scared, i had to stay home and watch the dog... he was excited as usual so im not sure if it affected him any but nonetheless it was a frightening experience..

I feel ya.

the second story and TrueLies experience sounds like EVP (electronic voice phenomenom?)
the idea being the recording (cassette on record) picks up voices from the afterlife,
I don't really know that much about it though,

good stuff!

TrueLies - Come to think of it, I can relate to what you said about hearing voices in your house. I can remember numerous times hearing someone whisper my name really loudly, seemingly really close to me, but there was noone anywhere near me! It always makes me jump, but it hasn't happened for a while. I'm pretty sure my house isn't haunted though, it's fairly new and no weird stuff ever really happens

EVP sounds like a pretty reasonable explanation; it doesn't seem to be all too uncommon either, I've heard stories about it happening a few times before. Never experienced it myself though.
