David Farrant radio studio

The following radio interviews and appearances were broadcast by various programs based in the U.K., the U.S.A. and Canada – many of the hosts of which are long term paranormal investigators in their own right.  Of course, before podcasts (most of which can be archived online, downloaded and saved for posterity)  took on popularity, there existed the “old-fashioned” radio shows of yore.  Many of these are now lost, or hidden in the physical archives of the stations which first released them.  But relatively modern recordings, such as those playable below, are – thanks to internet technology – much easier for listeners to retrieve and enjoy at their leisure.  So … enjoy!  David Farrant.

  • This controversial episode of World of the Unexplained was effectively ‘banned’ from the airwaves after ‘a certain person’ objected to its content.  The Highgate Vampire, feuds, stalking and outright lies are exposed in detail in this interview with David Farrant by J. Scott and Trent Lackey. Originally broadcast in October 2006.

  • This interview with David Farrant was first broadcast on the controversial James Whale Radio Show in 2001 on Talk Radio /TalkSport. Whale is known widely for his predictable rudeness towards his guests and people who had cause to phone into his show. Miraculously David survives his interview with James unscathed, contrasted with some other interviewees’ and guests’ experiences, and actually quite enjoyed doing a show with a shock jock for a change – at least Whales’s approach cannot be called dishonest!
