Historian John LeMay to Discuss Roswell UFO Crash on George Noory Show
Roswell author and historian John LeMay discusses the famous "Roswell UFO Incident" on the nationwide radio show, "Coast to Coast AM" with George Noory, on Saturday, May 7, at 1 a.m., Eastern time. UFO researcher Noe Torres will also appear.
By: Noe Torres
"Coast to Coast AM" airs on more than 500 stations in the U.S., as well as Canada, Mexico and Guam, and is heard by nearly three million weekly listeners. It is the most listened to overnight radio program in North America. A media phenomenon, "Coast to Coast AM" deals with UFO's, strange occurrences, life after death, and other unexplained (and often inexplicable)
In his book Roswell USA, LeMay, who is a lifelong Roswell resident and author of several books about New Mexico history, takes a fresh new look at the Roswell UFO crash from the perspective of someone who was born and raised in the Alien Capital of the World, Having grown up hearing tales of flying saucers and alien autopsies, LeMay also remembers meeting several Roswell eyewitnesses, including Robert Shirkey, who said he saw UFO debris being loaded onto a B-29 bomber at the Roswell Army Air Field in 1947.
In his new book, LeMay presents a careful reconstruction of the famous UFO crash, including details that many readers may not have previously heard. He also provides a unique glimpse into what it’s like to live in the one place on Earth most closely associated with flying saucers and extraterrestrials. In addition, he discusses some of the odd things that happen in Roswell, especially during its annual UFO festival.
LeMay also points out some of Roswell's other, lesser-known mysteries, such as the “alien ghost” that haunts the New Mexico Rehabilitation Center; the "second" Roswell UFO Crash (in 1949); Bottomless Lakes where cars sink into the depths and monsters emerge to the surface; the Headless Horsewoman of Lover's Lane, a Victorian Era Spook with an axe to grind against young lovers; and others.
In the second part of his book, LeMay takes readers on a tour of other towns all over the U.S. that celebrate weirdness – such as Churubusco, Indiana, where a giant turtle sighting in 1948 has served the town well in tourism for the last 60 plus years, and Flatwoods, West Virginia, where a one-time alleged sighting of a strange alien monster has since resulted in the “Flatwood Monster Days” festival. Also, there is Lake Champlain, New York, which has since become America’s very own Loch Ness. Point Pleasant, West Virginia, celebrates Mothman Days and has its own Mothman Museum. Kelley, Kentucky, is the site where aliens from outer space laid siege to a farm house in 1955. And, many UFO enthusiasts visit a lonely country cemetery in Aurora, Texas, where lie the remains of an extraterrestrial, or so they believe, that crashed there in 1897.
