It won't be called the Beat, says Radio One spokesman Amir Khan, who wouldn't comment when we asked whether the station would be called Hot 107.9, like the hip-hop station in Atlanta.
"Paranormal State" star Ryan Buell will be in Ambler Tuesday to screen his new self-funded movie, "American Ghost Hunter," at the Broad Axe Tavern (901 E. Butler).
Buell made the film with his "Paranormal" colleague Chad Calek. The documentary investigates a series of suicides and claims of paranormal activity in Calek's home state of Iowa. The guys chose to bypass the studios by doing a grassroots campaign of screenings around the country, promoting it largely on Twitter and Facebook, Buell says.
