VOLO, Ill., Oct. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Joe Cicero and Tina Bree, hosts of Star 105.5's morning show, were recently challenged to spend one night in the Volo Auto Museum's 163 year old barn by museum director, Brian Grams. The barn, which has been converted into an antique mall, has been the center of ghost stories ever since the Grams family purchased the property in 1960. Over the years, eerie tales of ghosts lurking around have grabbed the attention of both believers and non-believers who have spread the news worldwide.
In 2009 Discovery Channel learned of the museums supernatural happenings and made it a focus for an investigation for its TV series Ghost Lab. During Ghost Lab's two day study they were able to document paranormal activity, including capturing a shadow man on film. Because of all the curiosity and questions about the hauntings, the museum owners developed a one hour tour to tutor the minds of the curious. Tour-goers can learn history of the museum and the 36 acre farm land it was built on while riding on a replica 1915 Victorian Trolley every Saturday and Sunday. During the course of the tour guests will enter the barn for a chilling presentation about who is believed to be lingering around the property and why.
After the Grand Opening of the Trolley Tour, which was broadcast by Star 105.5's Cicero and Bree, Grams made a joke that turned into a bona fide challenge, daring the two radio hosts to spend one night in the barn. Fans of the Volo Auto Museum Facebook page bombarded Star 105's Facebook page with over 200 posts of encouragement. After several days of taunting, Cicero and Bree agreed to the task that is now scheduled for the evening of October 15th. The duo plan to use the radio station's sophisticated equipment in hopes of capturing their own unnatural phenomenon to share with their morning listeners, if they survive that is…….
