On October 12th 1969 the urban legend “Paul is Dead” began. Eastern Michigan University student Tom Zarski called Keener 13 Detroit radio’s DJ Russ Gibb and told him that Paul McCartney is dead over the airwaves.  Zarski explained to Gibb that Paul died in a car accident in 1966. Zarski said  that by playing this song backwards, a clue will emerge.

Tom Zarski said that by playing “Revolution 9” backwards, a clue will emerge: “Turn Me On, Dead Man.”  Russ Gibb did just that and listeners were stunned.

    I happen to know that Tom didn’t start the rumor and have the tapes of who did.

      Who started it?
      What tapes do you have?
      Was it me?
