A regular feature on KFAI’s Musical Transportation Spree was the segment UFO Update (1997-2006).
Jerry phoned in a UFO Update from the Strange Phenomena Conference in Winona, Minnesota as Suzn snapped two pics (left) capturing anomalous lights zipping past UFO investigator Craig Lang, Jerry, and abductee Roger Colby! Jerry interviews Dr. Charles Huver about his BWCA camping trip interrupted by a UFO; Carl Meiers (right, with Jerry) talks about his implant (illus.); Alabama’s Hon. Judge Sam Masdon describes seances he attended while stationed in the USAF in Bologna, Italy; the usual gang of suspects from the Texufornia Kook-Out describe their ouija board experiences. Also, abductee Betty Luca Andreasson interprets the nature of the eternal human soul.
UFO Update was a regular feature on KFAI’s Musical Transportation Spree (1997-2006).
