Every day between now and Halloween we’re sharing mystical, magical and maleficent stories from some of our favorite Milwaukee musicians — that’s right, we’re talking spooky stories.

On this episode of Milwaukee Encounters, we’re joined by singer Protegé, who tells us about the time he took a photo of a ghost that gave him nightmares for weeks. It was two or three years ago in New Orleans, he explains, on a haunted plantation tour. The tour guide told the group that if they took photos of the plantation they may be able to see photos of the late owner in the photos. Protegé did take some photos, then, sure enough, “next thing you know I’m looking at this figure in the back of the window.” The ghost had a top hat on and everything.

Hear him explain what he saw and why he deleted the photos on today’s episode below.
