Local country music legend and club owner Bobby Mackey is celebrating 41 years of his iconic, possibly haunted, country music honky tonk in Wilder, Kentucky. He's with our Elaine Diehl for some reminiscences and to talk about his latest single.

The haunted legend of Wilder, Kentucky's Bobby Mackey's Music World receives more television attention with an upcoming appearance (May 10-11) on The Travel Channel's Portals to Hell series. 

Just in time for your Halloween road trip is the new book, America’s Most Haunted: The Secrets of Famous Paranormal Places, which includes Bobby Mackey’s nightclub in Wilder, Kentucky. Co-author Eric Olsen was in town recently and spoke with Lee Hay about putting the book together and his travels to seek out the scariest places in the country.

Everyone has heard the stories of how Bobby Mackey’s nightclub in Northern Kentucky is haunted. Now, local author Dan Smith has written the definitive book on these tales, Ghosts of Bobby Mackey's Music World, and he joins Lee Hay to talk about the history of the location, the violence that happened there, and his own personal paranormal experiences.
