Coast to Coast Rewind
Sunday - Ed Dames returned to tell his tall tales to Art Bell. I sat there wondering how I had survived the bacteria (or whatever it was), sent down from comet Hale Bopp that destroyed 99% of all plant life and then I remembered, like the rest of Dames predictions back then, it never happened. No wonder the police even don't want Dames to help, if it takes as long for him to track down killers as it has to find Art's gold, the police will get it done faster without him.
Monday - Noory's guest was William Buhlman and he discussed out of body experiences (OBE's). I have nothing against the subject of OBE's, if fact, I have had OBE's myself, but I always find OBE shows really boring and this was no exception.
Tuesday - Joe Bullard was the guest and he was an expert on Coral Castle. I am fascinated by Coral Castle and I thought Bullard was a great guest on the subject. Bullard had lots of interesting stories about Ed Leedskalnin, the builder of Coral Castle. He also added some newer mysteries, like who owns Coral Castle, apparently nobody knows and those who do keep the name as a closely guarded secret. How did the frail looking Leedskalnin move those huge coral rocks that weighed tons? Bullard had his theories like everyone else, but the mystery is yet to be solved.
Wednesday - One of my favorite guests, Jonathan Downes, joined Noory for the show. As he does with all Cryptozoologists, Noory asked within the first few minutes, whether or not dinosaurs could still roam the earth. As with every guest I can remember, Downes told him that was highly unlikely. Downes was actually relaxing in bed, eating his breakfast during the interview. Kudos to Jon for that! Everyone should follow that trend from now on, it added a fun, relaxed atmosphere to the show. Some may think Jon eating breakfast in bed during the show was funny, but that would only be if they didn't catch some of the funny stuff Noory said during the show.
Thursday - We all assumed he was banned from c2c a couple years back when he predicted the Pope would not die, only for the Pope to die the following day. Yes, it was the return of Father Andrew Wingate, spreading his doom and gloom to the c2c audience. I think c2c finally got desperate enough after the announced guest cancelled to invite him back. The show, take a lot of doom and gloom, mix it with some strange form of Christianity and you will have the basic concept.
Friday - It was all rock and roll the first couple hours with R. Gary Patterson, Jay Perry Richardson (the big bopper's brother) and Peggy Sue Gerron (for whom the Buddy Holly song was written). That might not sound very esoteric, but it was. Peggy Sue told of her dreams of Holly's death and how she warned him not to fly in planes. Patterson was all into the numerology and other rock and roll mysteries during the second hour. Open lines followed and I tuned out.
c2c live with Ian Punnett - I enjoyed Ian's first hour guest, maritime archaeologist James P. Delgado. Delgado talked about many different maritime mysteries and I have a feeling he will return for a full show sometime in the near future. Charles Ostman was suppose to be the full show guest, but he was sick so a replacement was found and it was Charles Pellegrino. Pellegrino was on just a couple weeks ago talking about the lost tomb of Jesus, but seemed to talk about other things as well during this interview. I didn't get to hear that much of it, but it sounded fairly interesting.
c2c am with Art Bell - What to say about Mr Bell? I will say that I find him very irritating when he does politics. His guest was Michael Shrimpton, a specialist in national security, intelligence, and counter terrorism. Just from that you can guess his view on 911 and other things and that they probably didn't agree with mine. I really didn't listen to more than 30 minutes of this, I had heard it all before and it irritated me.
It was close this week between Joe Bullard and Jon Downes, but Downes wins out as my favorite guest/show of the week.
