Wow...Is George Noory really that hard up for guests?
In a demonstration of power and forgiveness, the weeknight Coast to Coast AM host resurrected not one, but two controversial or otherwise previously booted guests. In a move that would make even the most accomplished necromancer jealous, George welcomed Nancy 'Zeta Talk' Lieder and David 'Closed Lips' Booth back to the show.
But was this change of heart a show of Noory's thoughtfulness and personal introspection? Or was it perhaps a sign of desperation by the recently beleaguered host? Well, one thing is for sure, it was damn fine entertainment.
First to make her return was Nancy Lieder, whose last appearance was back on August 9th, 2005. Coast to Coast AM has a wide variety of guest archetypes. There are, among others, the serious 'real' scientists, the new-agers, the eyewitnesses, and of course the crazies. Lieder has always been in that later category in my book. With guests like Lieder, you can't help but just laugh at the absurdity of their actions. Though I must admit that I was nervous Nancy may have toned herself down to get back on the air. Thankfully, this was not the case.
If you're not familiar with the infamous Zeta Talk, let me spin it for you real quick. Basically, Miss Lieder claims to be in psychic contact with alien beings from the Zeta Reticuli star system. Using her as a medium through which to communicate, the Zetas can transmit messages to Nancy in real time...making for hilarious radio moments.
It was in the years leading up to her last Coast to Coast appearance that Lieder, via the Zetas, began prophesizing the cataclysmic return of Planet X. As this large, wandering body would make its way into our solar system, Lieder warned that the Earth would succumb to a violent pole shift that would subsequently wipe out most of humanity. But unlike other such prognosticators, Nancy's predictions were very much in the short-term. During her August 9th appearance, she claimed that it would all hit the fan that following May. But, this time quite like prognosticators before her, the time period came and went without some life-changing catastrophe.
Being generally non-confrontational, George opted to just let the whole Zeta talk story die out as opposed to bringing Nancy back on to try and make an excuse for her (or I guess the Zeta's...) mistake. During this past Thursday's appearance, George was similarly non-confrontational--only briefly mentioning the reason Lieder hadn't been on the show for nearly two years. But honestly, I didn't care one bit that George didn't turn the heat up any. Whatever reason Nancy could have made up to explain why Planet X didn't kill us all would have been useless, and would have served only to have taken away time from some serious Zeta talkin'.
*Here's the Zetas on that*
She doesn't know it, but we're making this foolish Earth-woman sound like a retard on nationally syndicated radio. Please, callers, don't try to talk any sense into her. We've all got a big bet going back here in Zetaville for how long we can keep this up.
*End of Zeta talk*
To bring the episode to a close, George brought on David Booth for the final two hours. His was a story that I knew a little something about. In March of 2004, he and Wayne Green appeared on Coast to Coast to discuss a super-secret meeting the pair had with Sister Lucia of Fatima miracle fame. However, after neither guest would agree to elaborate on what Sister Lucia revealed to them, George put the kibosh on them.
Digging through my Ghost Files archives from way back in 2004, I found this snippet of the booting:
The psychic David Booth, for example, claimed to have met Lucia before her death in February, 2005. As a guest on Coast to Coast AM, he and Wayne Green refused to elaborate on the meeting (if indeed it actually took place). The only thing they revealed was that a ‘new star’ would begin to shine, or some such thing. Because of their unforthcoming attitude, George Noory quickly put a stop to the interview.
But, as quickly became apparent during his return last week, it seemed Booth just wasn't ready for the whole Coast to Coast experience in 2004. In a great scene of 4th wall smashing, Noory and Booth discussed some of the background shenanigans that go on before and after guest is interviewed. Some pretty telling stuff, but nothing that really explained why Booth was so tight lipped.
What followed in the interview is best described as unintentionally funny (George seems to be having quite a few such interviews lately). After admitting that both he and his wife tried some powerful hallucinogens, Booth would go on to name drop such Coast-favs as David Icke and even Richard Hoagland. Which is funny considering Hoags was on for a couple minutes at the start of the show. Booth either 1) honestly doesn't listen to the show; or 2) is pretty dense. Either way, it was definitely a 'so bad, it's good' kind of interview.
Keep 'em coming, George. If you're going to go the absurd route, go all out. Now I'm just waiting to see if Tom 'Bigfoot-in-mouth' Biscardi will weasel his way back on the air...
