Wells well well: John B. fighting online piracy--and people from Premiere who want to know his guest list

In a recent edition of John B. Well's CARAVAN TO MIDNIGHT  radio program, the former Coast to Coast AM radio host unleashed on current Coast host George Noory without naming him directly.



During episode 63 of the CARAVAN talked about his 'old radio program' and how he thought he would be 'among persons' of 'higher thinking,' discussing subjects that were stimulants to the 'brain and spirit.'  Wells said that some from Coast to Coast AM have contacted him, hinting that it is a means of keeping an eye on him.  He said that someone from the old program wanted him to post his shows ahead of time.

You may recall that Art Bell publicly stated during his brief stint on SIRIUS XM that Coast to Coast AM was poaching his guests and also telling their guests not to appear on the DARK MATTER program.

Wells was also critical of Coast to Coast's choices of guests, stating that Coast purposely brought on a nuclear expert to downplay the Fukushima disaster.

During another program after his initial comments regarding Coast to Coast AM, Wells also gave a public 'hello' to Lisa Lyons--someone who is associated with Coast to Coast AM. Perhaps an allusion is being made that Lyons was the insider from Premiere who asked Wells who his guests were before he had them on.

Wells exited as the Saturday host of Coast to Coast AM months ago. At that time, Premiere Radio seemed to take the position that Wells went off onto a new venture. Even Noory, who publicly commented about the Wells departure on his program, said that John Wells left the program to do his own radio program. However, others including Wells himself have alluded to a forceful exit as opposed to the peaceful goodbye espoused by Premiere Radio.

The CARAVAN TO MIDNIGHT radio program has recently been fighting over online piracy, with Wells naming names during his programs and publicly decrying the pirate streams and YouTube uploads of his program. The CARAVAN TO MIDNIGHT is an online only show and subscription only service exists.

  1. It's too much money to be a member. I like Wells, but I cannot afford that price.

    1. don't pay it then. But don't expect others to just put it on youtube for free, Wells is working hard to do this show and should not be undercut by 'fans' who really aren't fans. Garuarteed they are working for premiere radio.

    2. What are you smoking if you can't afford 5$ per month? Must be good stuff...

    3. It is only five dollars more per year than coast to coast! You don't have to pay all at once, either. there are monthly prices or 1/2 year price, too.

  2. As a charter subscriber, I really must admit with very few exceptions Wells interviews are the most informative I've ever heard. Worth the $5 a month, cup of Starbucks price.

    1. It's so annoying, when a caller is dumped and the guest wants to have a conversation with the caller and George says that the caller is gone or hung up, when we all know he dumped them.

  4. John B's shows are very interesting, informative and thought provoking. His guests, (with a few exceptions) are always something different and cross a broad spectrum of interests. Even though I'm a bit of a Liberal, there is an awful lot of commonality between the "left v right" paradigms that people have no idea exists.
    C2C on the other hand is drifting towards the highly boring. I'm hoping NOT to hear some of the good people on there that I hear on CTM. I would be pretty disappointed to hear Alex Jones, for example ever set foot on Coast again.
    Keep it up JBW, we've got your back.

    1. he was on with Noory not too long ago--after the firing of Wells

    2. Alex Jones, like John B. is all about the message and the more exposure the better. I like to think that Alex's appearance on the Piers Morgan show was the final nails in that Red Coats coffin!

  5. Thanks John for all you do. If more tv and radio "talking heads" listened to you, the current state of affairs might be better off.

    One suggestion: It would be great if you could post a short one or two minute "hi guys" video on Facebook from time-to-time, just to say "Hello" and let us know what's going on. I think it worked well during the upstart days of C2M, it can work well again.

  6. I refuse to listen to George Noory any further. He has lost all credibility.

    1. I waitewd for my Coast subscription to end and pulled my credit card and then sent them an e-mail, explaining how bad the show is, now and that I am now a caravan to Midnight subscriber, because of how they treated John B. Wells. They can bite me!

  9. Wells, I've listened to your show on C2C many many times and I can indeed tell you are one of the good guys. Unfortunately your acumen involving the changes in narrowcasting, content distribution and building a brand in the streaming radio world will be the end of you. Period. Unless you engage someone who understands the paradigm shift that began 10 yrs ago and bring them on to your team. Dead Serious Brotha-man.

    Your business model is dead on the vine. Subscriptions don't work, embrace piracy and think outside the box. I ran 3 different bi-weekly music radio shows at hardly any cost 10+yrs ago and had 200+ listeners.

    How did I monetize it? I didn't. I was a lover of old school punk, downtempo and pot-rock genres and focused on building audience.

    Seriously, you've got to forget about monetizing content and preventing piracy. You can't fight it. Embrace it in an innovative way.

    Your brand is your voice and personality, there is a huge gaping hole now, be smart and stay 3 steps ahead. I cannot think of anyone other than Art (and Punnet) who can leverage their brand in this category
    Want to talk? I'm cool with that, hit me up:

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 …

A dog eat dog afterlife

I read a somewhat moving article on HUFF PARANORMAL about a man who lost his pet dog.. In death, he sought to find the animal’s spirit.. His method was to use a smoke bomb and camera.. The author of the article is sure that he saw the face of his beloved deceased pet on the foggy image..
Before you laugh and mock, there’s two things to note.. First off, science can explain so much. But there’s a cutoff when science stops.. At least at this point. Logic may say that this image is just smoke within smoke.. For for the believer when faith, it’s something more. And science by no means can explain even a morsel of faith., And secondly– perhaps this would be more for pet owners– who didn’t lose an animal and feel the presence of that same beloved pet after death? And even more, I have known a handful of people that claimed per visitation from an afterlife.. In my own circumstance, I fondly remember seeing my dog Newt walk by my door. It was after he died. I had a witness– he saw it but years l…
