The Discovery Channel Debut

The Alex Tanous Foundation was contacted this past Winter for a request of "Ghost Cases" that Alex Tanous had worked on. Dr. Tanous along with several colleuges worked on Haunting cases throughout his career. Several of these landmark cases have become very well known and New Dominion Pictures from Suffolk, Virginia has been working on re-creating several of the stories for a documentary that will be aired on the Discovery Channel.

The episode featuring Dr. Tanous' cases will be aired on Thursday September 21, 2006 at 8:00 p.m. If you would like a complete listing of New Dominion's features, please look at their Web Site at And don't forget to tune in to watch these landmark cases come to life!


Name That Tune

Name That Tune

I have very fond memories of my childhood singing and dancing along to Alex's music! Dr. Tanous was among many other things a wonderful singer and song writer. We have captured most of his original titles from the old fashion "record" and digitized them all onto a CD.

They are all in our Digital Library at, under "music". There you will see a list of the titles to choose from: "Don't Tell Me Now", "September Wind", and " I Said Good-Bye To You Yesterday" and listen to! We plan to offer a copy of the CD in our On-line Store in the near future. If you would like any other information on Dr. Tanous career in Music, please contact the Foundation or look in the Digital Library as well.
