Don't know how many of you have listened to Live365, those iTunes-accessible streaming audio channels for all sorts of amateur programming, but there
was a 24/7 all-UFO show on there (may still be, for all I know) sponsored by a commercial UFO website whose name I don't recall.
When I first heard it, I thought it was incredible — they were playing some really lengthy and in-depth 1950s and 1960s UFO interviews with Ivan
Sanderson, for instance, as well as narratives by George Van Tassel and other such far-out personalities. Really damned interesting stuff, and I
listened non-stop for the full cycle — which only turned out to be about 13 hours of stuff, and then they'd replay it all over again.
Don't get me wrong, 13 hours is a lot of UFO-related material to digest in one sitting, but it just doesn't make good 24-hour
I think you could come up with some decent programming by splitting it into several areas of interest — say, UFO material followed by
Ghost/Paranormal material followed by Earthly Phenomena. You could come in with Charles Fort segments, William Corliss segments,
interview specials with the really whacked-out UFO organizations out there, maybe some occult exposés, semi-weekly updates from MUFON and the like.
Of course, you must have a Paranormal Primer show at least once-a-week, which would bring new viewers up-to-speed with UFO and paranormal
terminology. And, without a doubt, you'd want to include at least an hour for daily UFO and paranormal NEWS.
And no Skeptical Enquirer spokesmen allowed, except for an hour or so of comic relief each week.
Didn't somebody prominent try to start an all-UFO & Paranormal television network once? Yeah, it was José Escamilla, the "discoverer" of
the "Rods" phenomenon (that eventually turned out to be bogus). When he was still hot property, José was very seriously talking about cranking up
such a cable channel and doing it up right. Even though he's kind of in debunked mode now, he might have some useful advice for starting a
cable channel, since he was exploring the necessary preparations just before his popularity hit the skids.
