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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  7. 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.

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

  12. Give me some songs you request.. is Hayling one of them?

  13. 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!

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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!

  17. 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:

Paging Paige: Done at the WWE

WWE’S PAIGE FORCED TO END WRESTLING CAREER

PWInsider reports that Paige was told at this past Monday’s RAW that she will not be able to return to the ring. It was noted that she is “done” as a wrestler, and that the situation is similar to Edge’s retirement in 2011 due to a neck injury…

Paige had just returned to WWE in late November after a seventeen month absence due to a neck injury she suffered in June of 2016. During her absence she suffered two Wellness policy suspensions.


Paige was injured during a house show at the Nassau Coliseum on Dec. 27 during a six-woman tag match. She was kicked in the back by Sasha Banks and struggled to get back to her feet after the bump.

FIRE AND FURY

The fake missile warning in Hawaii was scary for residents of that state .. 38 minutes of hell.

Scary for America more may be what ELIANA JOHNSON writes in POLITICO: A false warning of a missile threat in Hawaii sent White House aides scrambling Saturday, frantically phoning agencies to determine a response and triggering worries about their preparedness almost a year into the Trump administration. President Donald Trump’s Cabinet has yet to test formal plans for how to respond to a domestic missile attack, according to a senior administration official. John Kelly, while serving as Secretary of Homeland Security through last July, planned to conduct the exercise. But he left his post to become White House chief of staff before it was conducted, and acting secretary Elaine Duke never carried it out. The Old Cold War guard is gone. The newcomers can issue threats but appear to be unaware on how to act on them.. “The U.S. government hasn’t tested these plans in 30 years,” said the senior a…

There is water on Mars. There is not water on Mars. There is water on Mars.

A cross-section of underground ice is exposed at the steep slope that appears bright blue in this enhanced-color view from the HiRISE camera on NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. The scene is about 550 yards wide. The scarp drops about 140 yards from the level ground in the upper third of the image.Credits: NASA/JPL-Caltech/UA/USGS


This could be a game changer–and quite the about face since the past several months of news gathered have reinforced the notion that no water at all existed..

As reported in the journal Science (paywall), the water was found in both the north and south of Mars, at latitudes equivalent to South America and Scotland. The exposed areas were found on scarps as steep as 55 degrees. Based on the absence of craters in the regions, scientists believe that the features formed relatively recently.


“The discovery reported today gives us surprising windows where we can see right into these thick underground sheets of ice,” study co-author Shane Byrne of the University of…

FCC won’t let Trump’s shithole be

The FCC received complaints after NBC and CNN used the word “s—hole” in their coverage of the controversy over comments President Donald Trump reportedly made to lawmakers during a meeting about immigration.


An FCC spokesman said they received a “handful” of comments, but did not have an exact figure yet. The agency does not monitor programming, but reviews each complaint to decide whether to take any type of action.

CNN featured the term on its chyron, and it was also repeated on air multiple times. But the FCC’s jurisdiction over indecency and profanity does not cover cable and satellite programming.x

The word was used once on “NBC Nightly News,” but anchor Lester Holt issued a viewer warning in advance. CBS and ABC chose not to use the word.

The FCC considers a number of factors in whether to act on a complaint, including “context,” and that in the past has included whether it has been a part of news programming. Broadcasters are confident that they would be exempt for using the term i…

BIG ISLAND SCARE: THE DAY THE WORLD ALMOST ENDED IN HAWAII

THIS WARNING SOUNDED THROUGHOUT THE STATE TODAY:



Not only that, but warnings buzzed on TVs.. radios.. the horrid screeching noise when an emergency alert sounds.. 


CNN reports,

Jocelyn Azbell had just woken up in her Maui hotel Saturday when she was hurried into the hotel's basement to take shelter from an incoming ballistic missile.
"You're thinking, 'Oh my gosh, are we going to die? Is it really a missile (headed) our way, or is it just a test?'" the 24-year-old told CNN. "We really didn't know."
Minutes before, she'd received an ominous alert on her phone.
"BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII. SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER. THIS IS NOT A DRILL."

Azbell, her boyfriend and hundreds of other hotel guests were "herded like cows" into the basement by staff. "People are crying and people obviously were super scared," she said.
For 20 minutes, Azbell said, they waited. Finally, they were told that the alert was a false ala…

THE FLU BOMB: KIDS GET BANNED FROM DETROIT HOSPITAL!

The worst flu since the early 2000s strikes he entire continental United States is experiencing widespread flu right now, the first time in the 13 years of the current tracking system that that has happened, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Officials said that this flu season is shaping up to be one of the worst in recent years. The rate of flu hospitalizations — the number of people hospitalized with flu per 100,000 — nearly doubled last week compared with the previous week. Last week it was 22.7 per 100,000 people; the week before that rate was 13.7. IT IS SO BAD..
THE KIDS ARE BANNED FROM GOING TO THE HOSPITAL!! All of that prompted metro Detroit's Beaumont hospital chain to take an unusual step Friday afternoon: banning visits from children under 13 until the flu season subsides. “We apologize for the inconvenience,” said a news release from Beaumont Health System, which operates eight major hospitals in southeast Michigan. “All Beaumont Health hospita…
