John B. Unwell

Here’s some ‘inside baseball’ for those who listen to late night paranormal radio. Well.. radio that used to be paranormal.

Despite amazing bumper music and a voice for the midnight hour, Coast to Coast AM weekend host John B. Wells has been facing a growing amount of opposition to his hosting skills on the popular website BELLGAB.COM.. A few recent posts have indicated some outright anger about a show he aired on the anniversary of Pearl Harbor, and outrage over a Bible thumping lineup of guests on the Sunday night show…
For anyone who tried listening to the 12 hours of John Wells this weekend, kudos and hat tips. You have told us all of the shows details .. details we may not have known.
I did catch the some of the programs, especially the final few minutes from the Saturday and Sunday shows. Either Wells is doing it for some more attention, or there is tension behind the scenes, but he alluded that if he vanishes from the Coast roster, we can find him on Caravan to Midnight—a new online radio program he will be hosting in 2014.
On his Facebook page, he has told people that he is going to continue his weekend hosting duty on the ‘mothership’ that is Coast to Coast AM, and that his Caravan to Midnight radio show that fans will have to pay him to hear will air during the daytime—a strange schedule for a ‘midnight’ named show. Nonetheless, the latest few words of his demise that he himself hints at makes me wonder if someone is growing weary of the ultra political and almost zealot like religious momentum that he has built up since Ian Punnett left.
I think by mid-2014 he is not a weekend host, but instead replaced by Dave Schrader.. That may be going out on a limb, but it seems likely to occur—especially if Premiere Radio wants to try to continue having Coast be associated with paranormal instead of political. 
Maybe I will call the Coast to Coast AM New Years show and make my prediction official.

STRANGER THINGS 2 looks incredible

The newest STRANGER THINGS 2 trailer hit on Friday the 13th .. amazing timing as always with the fine people at Netflix..

The excitement over this program is incredible. Not only are people re-watching and re-binging the first season in preparation, but there is an equal amount of re-watching and analyzing of the newest trailers..


Before discussion.. take a glance:



My initial thought: This is actually the weaker of the teasers and trailers for season 2.. Yes, I am inclined to wonder why Eleven is more androgynous  .. why she has more hair now and no one shaved it. why she is out of the upside down and eating Eggos in the normal world..

So many questions about her. But the trailer didn't pay much attention to her--I think on purpose. Instead we glimpsed into the post-pubescent boys and now new friends of another gender planning something, just as the world is being taken over by giant squid creatures from the upside down.

Not viewed at all? Mike's mom and dad. Barb..

Forgive me…

THE UNLUCK OF THE IRISH: TROPICAL STORM MAY HIT IRELAND!!

Yes, indeed.. a hurricane-ish type storm is about to hit Ireland..

Hurricane Ophelia is the 10th consecutive hurricane to form in the Atlantic basin this year. According to University of Miami hurricane expert Brian McNoldy, the last time ten consecutive storms became a hurricane was 1893. While a very interesting factoid, the "elephant in the room" is that Ophelia is headed to Ireland. It is rare, but not unprecedented.

There are a few interesting things about this.. First off, there have been really rare occasions that storms of this nature made it as far as Ophelia may..

Actually there have been only a handful in the past years since about, oh, 1851..

From 1851 to 2010, only 10 extratropical storms, typically the tail ends of tropical cyclones, have hit within 200 miles (322 kilometers) of Ireland....Hurricane Debbie was the only tropical hurricane to make landfall in that area, clipping the far northwest of the British Isles in 1961.

But this is 2017--the year that mayhem on …

WE LEFT CAMPION OFF THE ARMY BASE AND NOW WE HAVE A PROBLEM IN ARNETT.. SOMEONE NEEDS TO FIND STU REDMAN..

Real news has become surreal.. I find many headlines of our current day to relate back to THE STAND.. I know the comparison is a little fuzzy, and my overdoing it may be annoying to some. But when the strange similarities to me are striking.. The STAND starts in Texas. And in real life Texas is the center stage for the Ebola scare. And even worse, the endless stories of people 'coming back to life' are getting bizarre--though we can assume that parts of Africa cannot truly pinpoint the cause of death, so somene coming back to life is moot: The person probably wasn't dead. At least we hope they weren't.. Though SNOPES can tell us it's a hoax, try to explain the high strangeness of ABC NEWS filming a dead man and suddenly seeing him moving..

Continuing to the real news of the day (though it seems like fiction half of the time), focus is now turning on how Thomas Duncan got inot the United States. The Washington POST is giving us an hour by hour synopsis of what happen…
