Scorchedear’s 5th Anniversary

Here’s the 100th post commemorating this website’s five years!

Last year’s addition of Jerry’s interview with Bebe Barron, electronic composer for the sci-fi film classic Forbidden Planet has, as of this date, over 4,000 downloads, Scorchedear’s most popular-ever offering. So rewarding for the memory of Charles Brin, who made the Bebe interview possible because they were old friends. Charles also made a movie cameo as a dour Yiddish school principal in the Coen Brothers A Serious Man.

Send in these clowns…?

Could anyone fail to notice news reports of creepy clown sightings this past year? Not as recent yet contemporary clown encounters of the bizarre kind were only part of The Clown Show, certainly another of the most popular specials in the Scorchedear archives.

 

UFO researcher Terry Hansen passed away. His one book, The Missing Times, is an important must-read critical history of UFOs and censorship in the news. Terry meets Jerry on UFO Update Volume 7.

UFO Update 7: The Missing Times & The Black Vault

img002UFO Update originated from broadcasts of The Musical Transportation Spree. Interviewed about his book, The Missing Times, Terry Hansen described how UFOs over missile bases in North Dakota & Montana made local news, yet wasn’t reported at the national level. Panic created in 1938 by the War of the Worlds radio rendition by Orson Welles (right) may have helped change how national media handled future coverage of actual UFO events, using ridicule and debunking, to keep the American public from taking the subject of UFOs seriously.

Internet Archive logo John Greenewald questioned whether or not the U.S. government has anything to hide concerning UFOs. His research using the Freedom of Information Act led him to create a website called The Black Vault.
