Well this is not paranormal related,but could you ask Jerry does he not think that Tom T Hall was one of country's underestimated story teller's.


Paranormal Adept
Maybe I’m disqualified from saying so, but I thought this was a very enjoyable and educational show. I was a bit surprised by Jerry Clark’s optimism about the future of UFO research and investigations. Many old-timers think we’re seeing history repeat itself. Jerry however, thinks we’re on the verge of making a breakthrough to the topic being accepted by science.
Here’s hoping!

I thought it was a fantastic show I always enjoy listening to Jerry he is always entertaining and informative the only thing I found doubtful was his assertion that his books would one day be available for Genes suggested price of £19.99.
Hope your keeping well Randal.

Great show again with Clark, it was intriguing in the last segment to hear Clark describe what is known as the Oz factor, defined by Jenny Randles.
The example he put forward is almost identical to my own flying saucer close encounter I had with my parents in the early 70`s, people walked nearby and didn`t notice this large luminous saucer right above their heads.


Paranormal Novice
Yes of course, my mother saw a flying saucer above the tretoops nearby, when she got out on the balcony to observe it closer the saucer came toward her.
I was maybe 4-5 years old and we all, my mother, father and I saw this classic flying saucer with rotating lights floating right in front of us, no sound and a glowing yellow light/aura around it.
It then disappeared over the roof and flew away.
