Ghost Files


Just when you thought the angry villagers had finally succeeded in driving me off, Ghost Files makes yet another return from the dark nether-realms of the paranormal.

It’s been a while since we’ve last met, and I can only hope my absence hasn’t caused any permanent damage to your psyches.

Continuing the expanded paranormal trend, I have a plethora of strange news articles for your enjoyment. For the Top Story, I present to you a possibly colorful alien sighting in Thailand. Plus, I’ve got some info on an alternative all-night radio show with a generous charity program and some details on everyone’s favorite George Noory and future plans for Coast to Coast AM.

Now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for: Ghost Files cometh…

:: Top Story ::

Why is it these kinds of things only happen overseas?

'Alien' sighting in Thailand

Copyright © 2005 Ananova Ltd

Officials in Thailand are investigating claims by villagers who say they have seen an alien.

About 10 people from Huay Nam Rak claims to have spotted the alien in a nearby rice field, reports The Nation. The 'extraterrestrial' was said to have a small body, a large head and didn't leave any footprints.


As I recall, George Noory broke this story on Coast to Coast AM on the night of Sept. 12. Lying in bed at the time, the story really grabbed my attention.

The Thailand villagers tell quite the tale. The creature they describe sounds at first to be reminiscent of the ‘Grey’ aliens that many abductees report. However, the description went on to describe yellow skin and big ears—characteristics not commonly used to describe traditional aliens.

This could mean one of two things: either this wasn’t a Grey, but instead some kind of cryptozoological animal; or it was some other breed of alien.

I’m reminded of Saturday night’s rebroadcast of Art Bell’s interview of Dr. Richard Boylan. When questioned about the Greys, Boylan describes a race of beings with as much (if not more) physical diversity than humanity.

Perhaps the Greys (or, maybe just ‘Aliens’ is more appropriate) follow a ‘Star Trek’-like, color coded caste system. While the scientists are born grey, the floating recon force is yellow and has big ears to better gather intelligence.

In either case, I think the big question here should be why this alien found it necessary to scope out Thailand crop fields? Maybe he was just hungry…or maybe there’s a larger agenda at foot.

What is this ‘X’ Zone you speak of?

Paranormal Community Comes Together to Offer Relief to Victims of Hurricane Katrina

PRWEB – September 12, 2005

BELLINGHAM, MA (PRWEB) September 12, 2005 -– In response to the overwhelming tragedy left in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, members of the paranormal community have come together to donate their products and services to a series of charity auctions to be held on eBay from September 14th to the 21st. Items being auctioned include: autographed books, psychic readings, videos, t-shirts, ghost tours, advertising space in leading paranormal media, and more. All proceeds from the auction will go the American Red Cross relief effort.


It’s good to see the paranormal community (a rather diverse group of individuals) come together for a good cause.

Now, perhaps I haven’t been keeping up on current events, but who is Rob McConnell of ‘X’ Zone? From what I gathered in the article, he hosts a Coast-esque show in the same time slot. That’s about like airing a soccer game to compete with the Super Bowl, but this is beside the point.

The article gives a list of all that contributed to this relief fund. I noticed Coast to Coast was not among them, however. If I heard him correctly, Mr. Noory will instead be auctioning off a co-hosting spot for the first hour of the show, with proceeds going to Katrina relief.

Now that’s what I’m talking about. I wonder how high the auction will go.

Ah, who am I kidding? I bet Richard C. Hoagland will take out a second mortgage just to win it. Though apparently Hoags doesn’t need an occasion to co-host an hour of C2C—take his sudden appearance to debate the moon-hoax theory with Eric Hufschmid for example.

If you want to know more about ‘X’ Zone (I know I do), the show is broadcast here: http://www.xzone-radio.com .

I’ve been waiting for a good while to use that headline.

Deep in the night and way strange

By Mary Lee Grant -Sept. 12, 2005 © 2005 Media Life

As host of "Coast to Coast," Premiere Radio Networks’ hit all-night radio show, Noory speaks with lots of strange folks. The four-hour program offers a rich stew of interviews with self-proclaimed experts on topics ranging from secret undersea U.S. Naval bases to the problem of giant reptoids who live in hidden cracks in the earth and the threat of alien abductions.

Each night anywhere from 4 million to 8 million listeners tune in to "Coast to Coast," which airs 10 p.m. to 3 a.m. Pacific time. Noory's show is carried on nearly 500 stations, as well via satellite and web radio, and it's a top-ranked show and No. 1 in its timeslot, according to Noory. All sorts of people listen: cross-country truckers, cops, shift workers, night nurses and insomniacs.


Alright! Go Noor. It’s about time Coast gets some more mainstream (if you consider Media Life Magazine mainstream…) coverage.

I can see where the article points out some of the funnier moments on Coast (David Icke’s theories), but I think it was a bit too lighthearted. For those familiar with Coast to Coast AM, this article makes for a fun read, but as far as promotion goes, it portrays the show as breeding ground for a bunch of crazies. Although this is a pretty good assessment, the show covers serious topics, too. Alex Jones for instance…well, maybe that’s not the best example. Some of the stuff Ed Dames says…

Ok, so maybe Coast is a breeding ground for crazies, but we still have guests like Stanton Friedman and Michio Kaku to balance things out.

What I found most intriguing about this Noory tell-all was the line about a possible television show.

And I quote:

That said, he has been approached about doing a television sidebar of the radio show, and he probably will take the offer.

I knew there was talk of Coast to Coast TV, but this makes it sound like a very possible reality. I think we just need to be absolutely sure we want to see some of Coast’s guests on TV—Or, in the case of Alex Jones, if they will even let some of them on.
