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.

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!”

Another UFO (Moondust, Bluefly, and Mexico)

June, 1995
Solo



In somewhat of a holdover from last week’s subjects, we begin with a mix of several UFO investigators and the director of the made-for-TV movie, “Roswell,” discussing the various rumors and speculations concerning a film, supposedly made by the U.S. government in 1947, of the autopsy on the aliens recovered from the Roswell saucer crash. This rather suspicious film has recently surfaced in private hands in England, and the owner has been tantalizing media types with short clip screenings in an attempt to sell the broadcast rights worldwide. And yes, it soon came to a TV near you.


This show preceded the Fox showing – we focus more on this film in later shows. From there, we move through another wink at Disney’s embrace of UFOs and into a more nitty-gritty mix of documentation concerning our governments whole history of extra-terrestrial craft recovery, as well as how these ongoing military programs have apparently been hidden or disguised. Project Moondust is reportedly assigned the task of recovering any foreign object from space, which may have come to earth within our borders since the ’60s. This includes anything from meteorites, to falling soviet satellites, to alien space craft. Operation Bluefly designates the often plain clothes Air Force units that actually go out to collect the space object in question. “Why the secrecy?” Then there are the ongoing mass sightings in Mexico, large and small formations of UFOs routinely seen by literally hundreds of thousands above Mexico City traffic jams, multi-point of view videos galore, a continuing mainstay in Mexican news media, yet barely if ever mentioned in the North American news. Flight patterns seem to be tracing paths between various Volcanic locations and (inevitably) fulfillment of Aztec prophesy is suggested, leading us right into next weeks extended examination of what in the world was responsible for the spiritual histories of supernatural intervention common to every human culture?

Another UFO (Fire In The Media)

June 1995
Solo



The 2 extended centerpieces of this show are soundtrack dialog from “Fire in The Sky” (a rather mediocre movie fictionalization of the Travis Walton abduction), and an Art Bell interview with Travis Walton and Mike Rogers who discuss what they claim actually happened to them that day in the Arizona mountains. You get their whole fascinating story as we contrast how the movie (which they advised) often veers annoyingly far from the way they remember it. The Travis Walton abduction remains one of the most impressive abduction stories on record.


A six-man lumber crew all agreed on the craft they encountered up close in a remote forest, as well as the events in which one of them was apparently taken by the ship and remained missing for five days. Only Travis knows what happened inside the craft, (he thought he was there for about an hour) but it ain’t much like the movie! The believability of these two simple (and frustratingly inarticulate) working guys is difficult to brush off, and the six-person corroboration of the incident is especially impressive since it is hard to imagine these types upholding a conspiracy amid the public pressure, which ensued. (For five days, until Walton mysteriously reappeared, the others were being investigated for murder and shunned by their hometown.) Apart from this lengthy comparison between real people and a Hollywood movie inspired by them, we cover the general infusion of UFO subject matter into all forms of modern media, the degree to which UFO lore proliferates throughout advertising now, (“Are we being conditioned?”) and specifically, bits from Disney’s(!) TV special on the subject of UFOs. The overall content of the special was surprisingly serious, comprehensive, and without a hint of skepticism, and it was, of course, actually designed to promote Disney Worlds new “Alien Encounters” theme ride opening in summer ’95. “When you wish upon a star…”

Another UFO (Above and Below)

June, 1995
Solo



This final, 5-hour edition of Another UFO for this month deals with ancient religious histories and implications related to an extra-terrestrial intelligence which may have been interacting with life on this planet for a very long time. This historically recent direction in probing the origins of religions is interesting because, in some ways, it actually represents a more “reasonable” explanation for all those varieties of ancient spiritual supernaturalness which, otherwise, we are supposed to either dismiss as ignorant myths created out of no apparent stimulus, or accept as… actually supernatural!


Arthur C. Clarke has said that any contact with a truly superior technology is going to appear to be magic, and that would be as true thousands of years ago as it remains today. We might note that we, ourselves, went from the first powered flight to landing on the moon in 60 years, less than one human lifetime! That seems utterly impossible except that it happened. Once we realize that “intelligence” elsewhere in the universe could be not only thousands, but just as easily millions or billions of years older than ours, almost anything becomes possible. Among other things, our definition of natural might end up being the ignorant myth. So here’s a whole bunch of new possibilities why Christianity may be even more stupid than we thought, or to put it another way, why it may finally make sense! A few of the concepts covered: Angels and aliens, Ezekiel and other Biblical strangeness, the supernatural enigmas pervading ancient civilizations, genetic manipulation of Earths indigenous species to explain the missing link in human evolution, modern UFO encounters indicating an ancient relationship, “The many masks of God”, egos lost and paranoias gained, more on Mexican antiquity and the modern sightings there, and the Reverend Tilt Reptilian hosts an experimental religious call-in show for the next century called, “What Are We Supposed To Think Now?
