The K-Files


Welcome to the latest installment of The K-Files.

For all of you Coast fans that tuned in last Friday night for Ian Punnett's interview of Stan Lee, you may have noticed the plug of all plugs for yours truly and this weekly column. Yes, that's right, the unthinkable has happened. The K-Man has indeed been mentioned on air for all of the Coast audience to hear. 

As I sat there listening to Ian thanking me for the kind words I've written about him in the past, I could do little else but stare ahead blankly and smile in a state of shock. Kudos to you, Ian Punnett, and double-kudos to Tim Binnall for setting this all up. This was one surprise I don't think I'll ever forget.

You'd better get ready, 'cause here come The K-Files...

::Special Report::

So there I was…

As usual on a Friday night, I made my way home from work just in time to catch Coast to Coast AM’s opening Midnight Express theme. But unlike past weeks, I was particularly interested in that night’s episode.

For one, instead of George Noory’s usual open lines to look forward to, we were to be graced by the presence of Mr. Live himself, Ian Punnett. It’s a rare treat hearing Punnett host the regular show, so I was determined to tune in. And, as if that wasn’t enough, joining him for the first hour was Marvel-master Stan Lee. I’m partial to Image and DC comics myself, but a show like that is must-listen radio.

So then, there I was…

As Punnett was going through his introduction and housekeeping bits, I was busy gouging myself on a plate of low-fat cottage cheese. I really don’t like the stuff—neither taste nor texture—but beggars can’t be choosers, and I was hoping the Stan Lee interview would help take my mind off of it.

Then the bombshell hit.

A lightning bolt from out of clear skies.

About two and half minutes into the show, Ian started talking about some guy named Michael who writes a weekly column about Coast to Coast AM. He’s a sci-fi and horror fan who apparently has written some kind words about Ian. Sounded like a pretty cool dude…wait a minute…

So there I was…

Frozen in a state of pure shock, clumps of cottage cheese falling from my suspended fork, I could do nothing but stare ahead blankly at my computer monitor. I knew Ian was talking about me, but I couldn’t bring myself to fully comprehend the magnitude of it all.

By the end of the shout-out, the rest of the night seemed like a hazy blur. A massive grin pasted on my face has yet to disappear. But unfortunately I didn’t get a whole lot out of the Stan Lee interview—as I spent the hours after my mentioning giving thanks to congratulators on message boards  and explaining what went down to friends. But no biggie, I’ve listened to that first hour segment at least five times already.

I may be taking this a bit far, but dang it...I’m going to ride these 15 minutes of mini-fame for as long as I can. I’m sick of being the unremarkable background character that never wins anything, and no one is going to bring me down from this high.

So let me conclude this week by giving kudos to those that deserve it the most.

First, Ian Punnett, your friendliness knows no bounds. Thanks again for the quality shout-out and the prime real-estate before the Stan Lee interview.

Secondly, to my main-man Binnall, kudos and kudos again. This was as big of a surprise as someone could ever hope for—and it’s not something that I will soon forget.

And then finally, I’d like to say thank you to all of you K-Files readers and supporters. Stay tuned in the coming weeks, because Khyron’s got a few new tricks up his sleeves.
