Another UFO (Wild Blue Yonder)

October, 1996
Solo



A three-hour remix of Sam Sherman’s audio tape, “The Edwards A.F.B. Encounter.” These Air Force recordings, obtained through freedom of information laws, are not conclusive as to whether the military knows much of anything about UFOs, but they certainly do make it clear that the military had protocols to follow and procedures in play during a 1965 appearance of luminous craft performing impossible speeds and maneuvers over vast areas of California sky ranging from directly over Edwards A.F.B. up to the edge of space. Stationary, then zipping around, they are caught and tracked by numerous military radars in the area, chased and also caught on radar by a military interceptor sent up to investigate, and you hear many of the actual radio and phone communications during this extended encounter.


But it’s also a mix, so the US Air Force interrupts with recruiting P.S.A.s, and callers fly in and out all mixed up in drones. Sherman’s interesting collection of the military talking to each other during this strange event is proof enough that our military is not telling us everything it knows, especially the acknowledgment that they, themselves, have had close encounters with unexplainable, intelligent technologies far beyond human abilities for a long time now.

Another UFO (What Are We supposed To Think Now?)

August, 1996
Pastor Dick, Hal Robins, Don


In this discussion oriented mix, we present five hours of “What Are We Supposed To Think Now?”, with your heavenly host, the Reverend Tilt Reptilian. Somewhat reminiscent of the “Christianity Is Stupid” OTE show, Pastor Dick and Tilt “seriously” debate, not the existence, but the nature and motivations of UFOs. Tilt thinks they’ve always been here and are operated by whatever off-planet entity is responsible for the early genetic alterations to earth hominids, which resulted in us. Dick believes they are demons from the Devil, a trick of Satan, and that humans are only 6000 years old. Mixed in are tapes of Zechariah Sitchen, Graham Hancock, and others on the strange origin of humans and the Gods of antiquity who moved among them. Halfway through, Subgenius Dr. Howland Owl joins the debate which then turns more surreal, with callers throughout providing sightings, songs, and various thoughts wandering. It’s special! This is the radio return of Pastor Dick after 8 years.

Another UFO (The Early Years)

July, 1996
Solo



This museum show intends to give an overview with extended details concerning the earliest sightings and encounters in the Modern Era (1947 through the mid 60s.) Not a lot of audio from this period exists and I supplement things with readings from “UFO, The Complete Sightings” by Peter Brookesmith, an interesting, chronological, straight-forward account of reported UFO incidents throughout history.


Added to this are extended tapes made for radio broadcasts in 1955 by George Adamski (one of the first “contactees”), Desmond Leslie (The UFO view from 50s England), an Art Linkletter TV show from the late 50s or early 60s with Frank Edwards on UFOs, several lengthy clips from the CBS Evening News of 1966 covering a then occurring rash of UFO sightings in Michigan, which produced the famous “Swamp Gas” diagnosis of Dr Hynek, and some compressed romping through all the UFO topics making news in the 50s.


Not a crazy mix, as these rare and antique UFO tapes are low fi and deserve to be heard. And reading about the self-evidently foolish, if not hoaxterish claims of Adamski is not quite the same as listening to this eccentric in the flesh. The 50s ambiance is filled out with a few songs from the era and early sci-fi soundtrack music from Hollywoods bandwagon.

Another UFO (The Nova Agenda)

March, 1996
Wobbly & Don



This specialized edition is media about media about media. Wobbly and I make some interesting noise all through this show containing the PBS Nova show on abductions and Bud Hopkins appearing on some radio shows to refute that broadcast. Includes an Internet statement from Nova’s producer, her letter to one of the abductee participants, as well as a written statement by Hopkins. Lots of upset squabbling over how Nova, representing the conservative voice of establishment science, is way behind the times when it comes to this subject, and disappointingly negligent/biased in their presentation of it. The live, concretely musical mix of all this kicks the constant dialog along in an outer entertaining way. An excellent mix about mainstream science’s approach to this subject.

Another UFO (The Autopsy Part V)

October, 1995
Solo


This is the last of The Autopsy series. With a primary focus on Dr. Cyril Wecht, we hear much more extensive observations of the autopsy itself, as he discusses them in a “UFOs Tonight” interview. Others also comment, as this event continues to drift abreast of us, undefined and unidentified, drenched in rumor and without resolution. Lots of ambient dub, a larger than normal, if there is a normal, edit section on those removable, black, contact eye coverings, Don and Dwight’s technical screw-up weirdness, some great “music” from callers, and you have the most psycho-entertaining one of the bunch. More later, if American journalism, or anybody elses, gets off their duff.

Another UFO (The Autopsy Part IV)

September, 1995
Solo



This “War and Peace” of a radio series continues into October. All new as always. The debate continues on certain media channels and Bob Shell returns with more on everything he sees in this film from two different shows. Also, lots of Linda Howe from a guest call to a KPIX talk show, (not a usual venue for this subject around here), a written statement from UMN concerning nonsense, a special legal interruption, and everybody sorts out the latest from the tried and tested. Nothing’s “true”. Nice mix under all this.


Material about the autopsy film just keeps accumulating, becoming more, not less, interesting as a sociological and media phenomenon. In fact, I consider this to be the most important media event of any lifetime if it’s true, or the most audacious, clever, and sophisticated hoax in history if it’s not. And, since mainstream media and “respected” journalists have, so far, inexplicably ignored this story from either standpoint, on we go.

Another UFO (The Autopsy Part III)

September, 1995
Solo



This edition presents a variety of interview material with Bob Shell, a photo expert who is studying the autopsy film from many standpoints. These include the films chemical makeup, exposure characteristics, its physical condition, etc., as well as the content of the Fox footage and further footage he has seen, and confusion about the location of the crash site. (Actually, according to the cameraman’s statement, his film depicts an alien from another crash near Sequoro, New Mexico, not Roswell, and it happened a month before the Roswell incident. This sticky detail, while actually tending to increase the plausibility of the film since the body shown does not match previous descriptions of bodies from the Roswell crash, is completely ignored by the Fox production which attributes this body to “Roswell”, and appears perfectly willing to spread this misinformation in order to increase accessibility with familiar labels.)


We also hear about Shell’s sometimes contentious dealings with Fox as a consultant from the beginning of their production plans, more about the cameraman’s identity (which everyone closely involved with this seems to already know but are not yet revealing), information about film of another, separate autopsy and various debris which Fox sold(!) to a private German investor named Spielberg. (Nothing to do with the movie director, contrary to many rumors.) The mysteries of shortsighted human folly just keep piling up as the mix gets more musical.

ANOTHER UFO (The Autopsy Part II)

September, 1995
Solo



Adding a little background to the Santilly film, we cover some new material about the 1947 Roswell UFO crash which supposedly produced the humanoid being dissected. We also listen to various interviews with Congressman Stephen Schiff, of New Mexico, who has been investigating the Roswell incident by requesting the Government Accounting Office to locate any relevant records, which might exist. Their report found nothing except that all outgoing phone records from the Roswell Air Base between ’46 and ’49 were destroyed “without authorization” decades ago, but Schiffs first ever official congressional interest in this incident apparently provokes the Pentagon to replace their original weather balloon explanation with a new and different balloon explanation (“Project Mogul”) – 50 years after the fact(!) Schiff has also seen the Santilly film/video and comments. Also, a taped interview with Barry Goldwater in which he relates his own thwarted attempt to see what UFO material was being kept at Wright Patterson A.F.B., and still more reactions and speculations about the autopsy film.


3 Hours


ANOTHER UFO (The Autopsy Part I)

September, 1995
Solo



This month, the Fox showing of “Alien Autopsy- Fact Or Fiction?” is dealt with extensively. Part I concentrates on pre-showing discussions and debates, which include many people who had already seen preview screenings in England, as well as stills from the Santilly film. Analysis and suspicions about the nature and dating of the film, the creature shown, the film’s distributor, Ray Santilly, and his motives, and the mysterious cameraman were already well underway and highly detailed during this time period.


The complete written statement concerning the crash and autopsy by the camera man who shot the film is read. Some of my sources include Laura Lee, “UFOs Tonight”, and Art Bell, including his phone interview with Santilly. Is it or isn’t it a hoax is the main point of discussion and, so far, this question remains the defining character of this teasing media event. Whether this turns out to be the most important film ever shot or the most intricate hoax ever perpetrated, we depict it all, as it tumbled out onto the eager airwaves around us. We begin with a triangle table discussion of the Fox show with Dr. Oslo Norway, Crosley Bendix, and the Reverend Tilt Reptilian, and then focus on found discussions of all sorts.


Both the revelation that this event proposes and the resulting bewilderment among squinting researchers of all kinds, together constitute a monumental debate about what, if anything, is credible in the information age. This is an extremely interesting development and terribly telling about the curious nature of our modern, media dependent perceptions and ontology.

ANOTHER UFO (True Or False)

June, 1995
Solo



This show begins another full month of “Another UFO” shows. Now for all the stuff that makes this phenomenon hard to take seriously or downright ludicrous. We delve deep into human gullibility, elaborate speculations, unsupportable presumptions, confabulated conspiracies, hypothetical lore mongering, and the mentally challenged wackos, dizzy-brained wanna-be’s, starry-eyed new agers, and possible disinformation specialists who drive it all.


As UFOs become a route to celebrity and the mainstream landscape fills with books, broadcasts (like this one), lectures, conventions, movie deals, and competing egos, the whole business becomes even more suspect than it was when it wallowed in fringe topic obscurity. Focusing primarily around John Lear (son of the famous plane designer) from many of his extensive interviews with Art Bell going back several years, it becomes clear that some people are ready to believe anything. In turn, this kind of mentality inevitably lures paranoids and show-offs to their phones as they all encourage each other to push our admittedly flexible true/false envelope over the edge and out of sight.

What’s more disconcerting is the fact that Lear admits to having worked with the CIA in his past, and claims many corroborating sources for his scary details in the military and intelligence services. Or wait a minute… maybe he is right about some of this… All part of the big mind game this subject plays like no other I know of. Lear is joined by Leland Googleburger (who overrides the Netwebs signal to bring you this embarrassingly unauthorized side of the story and then accidentally kills himself!), and various other UFOlogists mixed up in robot phone calls, mind control, underground bases, The Men In Black, and much more. And, “Please, humans, dont shoot aliens!”
