Tim Weisberg

Tim Weisberg has been hosting "Spooky Southcoast" on WBSM since January 26, 2006. He originally created the show, along with co-host and producer Matt Costa, to give the people of the SouthCoast a chance to discuss their own local hauntings, legends and lore. But a funny thing happened--the show has grown by leaps and bounds and is now one of the most recognized programs on the paranormal in the entire world! The show has been downloaded more than 2,000,000 times all over the planet. Tim has also written two books: "Ghosts of the SouthCoast" and "Haunted Objects: Stories of Ghosts on Your Shelf," the latter co-authored with Spooky Southcoast's Christopher Balzano. Tim has also made appearances on The Travel Channel ("Ghost Adventures," "Most Terrifying Places in America"), The History Channel ("MonsterQuest"), BIO ("My Ghost Story"), Discovery Channel and LIVING TV in the UK. When not working in the world of the paranormal, Tim is a sports writer for The Standard-Times in New Bedford, covering the Boston Celtics, New England Patriots and local youth and high school sports. Spooky Southcoast airs Saturday nights 10 p.m. to Midnight.

A Talk with Singer/Storyteller Bill Harley

I first saw Bill Harley when I was in elementary school in Plymouth, MA. He played a couple of times during my time at West Elementary, and his songs spoke to eight-year-old me more than anything I'd ever heard. Songs like "Monsters in the Bathroom," "50 Ways to Fool Your Mother" an
