IT’S RATING: 5 Charley’s
First it’s priceless! Second, this is not an actual video. It more like a PowerPoint slide show. But don’t let that discourage you. You can listen to it while doing something else. This is an extremely rare and important piece of Fortean history. Ask any researcher, no matter what the topic, and they will tell you “first-hand testimony is the best data to work from.” Granted it this case, it can be agreed to, that this is technically not first-hand testimony.
But a first-hand, on the scene investigative report coming from one of the most recognized authorities in all things Fortean, is pure gold, Ivan T. Sanderson.* In fact Sanderson is credited with creating the term “cryptozoology” back in the late forties. The show is hosted by Long John Nobel**, a pioneer in late-night radio talk shows. Long John specialized in discussing controversial topics and having equally controversial guests on his show.
