The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado, is not so famous for its beautiful surroundings and accommodations or its famed founder as it is for its connection to a book and a movie. The Shining
was Stephen King's third published novel and a bestseller. This classic of horror fiction, in turn, inspired the iconic motion picture of the same name by Stanley Kubrick. And these two works had cemented the idea in the popular imagination that the Stanley Hotel must have some dark history of troubled spirits in residence there. But as we've all learned, works of fiction often color the actual history of a person or place. So what is the real story of the Stanley Hotel? It's best to ask someone who has personal experience, and that's what we've done. Tonight's guest is Connor J. Randall, whose own childhood supernatural experience at the Stanley led not only to a passion for paranormal research but also to his work there as first a concierge and tour guide and then later as a resident investigator. Please join us tonight as we hear from someone who had come to know the real spirits of the Stanley Hotel, as they had come to know him.
