Once again I pop over to the site where EVERYTHING has been just about disputed, Bigfoot Ballyhoo. I hadn’t been there in some time because the blog author, Linda Newton-Perry stated she was hanging it up.

But as we have repeatedly shown, some tend to come back…and here she is again. Again sticking by all these stories proven to be made up on her “blog.”

For the site’s brief history, you can read about it here.

Linda Newton-Perry again in her penchant for putting “alleged” (and by alleged I mean phony) Bigfoot stories on her blog to support the Bigfoot mystery again falls short.

In the latest, she is still supporting the PROVEN phony Bill Emery by supplying us with this gem on her site. This gem appeared last October.

Here’s the text of this so called encounter,

 

Jerry Lustin has left a new comment on your post "Bill Emery comments on 1962 Bones":

Hello, I’m Jerry Lustin and was among the guys who found the giant creature in November of 1962. Bill emery has asked me to write a short comment on this site. I have never wrote anything in my life so bare with me.

It was in the early hours of November 9th when me and several other men were working the Dew Ridge area clearing wind falls from the roads in the area. If memory serves me it was 8:30 am or so when we saw what we thought to be a dead bear under a big old growth tree on Dew. As we approached the bear it became plain to us that it was not a bear.
The animal was something in between ape and human in looks only larger than any thing I’ve seen ever before or since. The animal was laying under the tree face down and dead. We all looked at it and to our surprise this animal had hands and feet not paws. It was covered in a short crop of black hair and obviously not anything ever seen by us before.

We needed a forest service foreman to come to the site right away to look at it because, we were not to remove any fatalities from wind storm damage trees without forest service being on site. We had well understood protocol to go through in case we came across a car with people in it under a tree. Ranger Guy Adams from Cave Junction arrived and took photos from both sides of the tree. Then more people came up to do the same. As the site filled with forest service and unknown people we were directed to cut a 10 section out above the creature for removal.

It was after we removed the tree off the animal that they got branch poles out and turned the animal over onto its back. The animal’s eyes ware open and dried blood was all over the mouth and ears of the animal. The eyes were black in color. Teeth were jagged and yellowish. It had breasts on it like a female only dropped and small in shape. It was female of course. Everybody was told to stay away from the animal at this point. By noon a truck had showed up and they used block and tackle to pick the animal up and swing it into the back of the flatbed.

At that point the big wig from Medford came and they told us to leave that road and go to Glary Creek some 5 mile away to work for the rest of the week. They started acting like squirrels to many of us, nervous and snappy. It was three days later when Guy told us that animal was a ape escaped from a home in O’Brien. We knew it was bull, because who keeps a 8 ft ape for a pet. We knew when we uncovered the animal, it wasn’t no ape. We didn’t know about bigfoot then but thought it was some kind of wild man-gal.

For some time after many stories came out on the animal as to what it was. My brother- in- law took 3 pictures of it and I hope to give copies to Emery if Stan can locate them.

Once again LNP has this picture which raised a flag to me knowing her modus operandi in the past to have photo’s mislabeled, misidentified to make the reader believe they are something they are not.

With the real people identified in the picture, we learned that the picture had been placed on PBase at the latest on July 14th, 2006 and we know Buzzy’s Greenwater Café closed in 2008. (Source: Small Towns Newspaper Service)

In fact here’s a picture of Buzzy circa 2008…

But here’s where the fun begins. We go back to LNP’s researcher that started it all, “Dale Saxton.”

I took a look at the rest of the thumbnails and BANG… there’s “Dale Saxton” the logger who was the inspiration of the “ESP Team.” We also found another picture of Buzzy Franklin.

But the person pictured is not a logger like Ballyhoo and LNP had claimed, but a fisherman running salmon charters.  This picture was uploaded to PBase on July 14th, 2006, long before Ballyhoo was even a thought and can be found here.

LNP likes to use an article title of “It’s a matter of time.” You’re right Linda!!!

It’s a matter of time before we find the now changed pictures of the ESP Team, since we exposed the last set. And a matter of time before we find “Cole’s” pictures too!!!

Bigfoot research over the decades has had its ups and downs. What I love most are the true scientists that come forward to assist us in the daily fight against pseudo-science and at the same time assist us in the fight against the mainstream science which out of many times, opinion discounts what thousands of witnesses have seen over the generations.

One other double standard was the discovery of the Bili Ape. It began to originate from footprint evidence that there was a different type of primate inhabiting the jungles of Africa. However since day one, science has discounted the numerous tracks found by people, citing hoax or misidentification from minute one.

Also misleading are some of the statements made by the skeptical scientists interviewed on some documentaries. They generally state opinion. One skeptical scientist actually stated, “If these things were out here, people would be seeing them.”

WHAT????

The sad fact is though with the proliferation of social media, it has become easy for false news stories and junk science to be promoted as fact. And it allows people whom naively follow people without doing their homework.

We have seen this time and time again with some of the folks exposed in the Hall of Shame. They obtain a following and what they say is gospel to the people who blindly accept what they preach. That is usually until they do their own research.

I’ve always said here, “Don’t take my word for it. Do your own research and use what I say as a starting point.”

 

Deflating the Claims of the Ketchum Study

One such scientist that’s on our side, being that he is looking at things from an unbiased point of view is Dr. Haskell V. Hart, who breaks down the nitty-gritty of DNA results and puts them to the test. Particularly Dr. Melba Ketchum’s DNA Study.

The first thing that threw my BS Meter abuzz was the manner in which she released the information.

Many forget about a press release a day or two before the release of the study. This violated the normal standard for scientific studies being released into the public.  Dr. Ketchum was charging $30  for a download of the report the next day. Sounded to me like it was a promotional pitch to increase sales, much the way Apple releases their products.

Now one might say she was trying to recoup what she spent in the study, however she was charging the folks that submitted samples in the study for those costs. Not to mention a draconian non-disclosure agreement. Basically stating they had a right to get the results, but couldn’t talk about it, ever, at all unless Dr. Ketchum herself, gives permission.

All of this sounds highly irregular right? But it goes on.

Ketchum had published the study in a scientific journal called the Denovo Journal, which at the time of release was called the Journal of Advanced Multidisciplinary Exploration in Zoology.

Shortly thereafter, as all skeptical Bigfoot researchers do, dug up the fact she owned the very journal and was purchased very recently to the study being published.

Ketchum stated,

“After this journal agreed to publish the manuscript, their legal counsel advised them not to publish a manuscript on such a controversial subject as it would destroy the editors’ reputations (as it has already done to mine).  I have documentation on all of this drama.  So, rather than spend another five years just trying to find a journal to publish and hoping that decent, open minded reviewers would be chosen, we acquired the rights to this journal and renamed it so we would not lose the passing peer reviews that are expected by the public and the scientific community.  Denovo, the new journal is aimed at offering not only more choices and better service to scientists wanting to submit a manuscript, but also reviewers and editors that will be fair, unlike the treatment we have received.

It has been a long and tedious battle to prove that Sasquatch exists.  We have had the proof for nearly 5 years but building enough data to convince mainstream science has taken a lot of time.  Trying to publish has taken almost two years.  It seems mainstream science just can’t seem to tolerate something controversial, especially from a group of primarily forensic scientists and not “famous academians” aligned with large universities, even though most of our sequencing and analysis was performed at just such facilities.

We encountered the worst scientific bias in the peer review process in recent history.  I am calling it the “Galileo Effect”.  Several journals wouldn’t even read our manuscript when we sent them a pre-submission inquiry.  Another one leaked our peer reviews.  We were even mocked by one reviewer in his peer review.”

 

Did Ketchum realize that Albert Einstein formulated his theory of General Relativity in 1911 and didn’t get it published until 1919?

The process of publishing a scientific paper is grueling and tedious. No doubt she had some push back given what I stated earlier, but patience and perseverance is what normally wins the day.

So this puts the entire publication in doubt, whether it be by misstep or otherwise.

I was waiting too for something incredible and instead was immediately disappointed.

Soon afterward Dr. Ketchum fell into the category of what some researchers call the “woo.” She began to claim Bigfoot was braiding her horses hair on her ranch, and a very bizarre to say the least Bigfoot encounter.

“She is the fairies’ midwife, and she comes

“In shape no bigger than an agate stone…

That plaits the manes of horses in the night

And bakes the elflocks in foul sluttish hairs,

Which once untangled, much misfortune bodes.”

(Shakespeare: Romeo and Juliet Act One Scene 4).

An article on Elf and Fairy Knots and lore can be read here. Now we can move those into the Bigfoot column.

Enter Dr. Haskell V. Hart…

image Dr. Haskell V. Hart holds a PhD in chemistry from Harvard University and has a physical, inorganic, and analytical chemistry research background. He was Associate Professor of Chemistry, University of North Carolina at Wilmington, after which he was Senior Staff Research Chemist and Research Manager at Shell Chemicals. At Shell he both conducted analytical research and managed various analytical departments. His research interests have included analytical applications of x-ray diffraction, electron diffraction (two database patents), and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. Since his retirement, he has focused on long-range detectors and application of DNA sequencing to species identification, especially relict hominoid candidates. His blog, www.bigfootclaims.blogspot.com, contains over thirty articles on this subject and related issues.

Dr. Hart did a study of his own on the Ketchum Study and came up with some interesting take aways for those who want the science to debunk Ketchum’s rather incredible findings of a new Relic Hominid.

As suspected by this writer, and stated in the past, the problem was the Primer which is used to scan an area for like DNA. They used a Human primer, and not surprisingly we got mostly human results aside from contamination. They did not use a universal primer approach which would have been the appropriate primer to use for an unknown sample. (Hence could be the fitting of evidence to a story rather than fitting the story to the evidence.)

Dr. Hart breaks down the processes and how Ketchum was dealing with either contaminated or degraded DNA samples. And he breaks down some of the Study’s samples into a proper reading in the GenBank. Here’s just some of the highlights:


Further examination of the extra mutations in Table 2 here shows that in S2, S26, S36, S39b, S44 and S46, most of these extra mutations could be attributed to a second haplogroup, i.e. a contamination. However, Ketchum et al., in their paper and publicly, steadfastly deny any contamination in any of their samples…

Clearly, the Ketchum et al. study would have benefitted from this universal primer approach. Sequencing “whole” nDNA genomes of a black bear (S26) and a dog (S140) would have been avoided, and likely many other samples would have shown nonhuman matches by mtDNA sequencing with universal primers. It seems unlikely that all 111 of their study samples collected in the woods would turn out to have human mtDNA as reported, unless, of course, they were contaminated.

 Short Tandem Repeats at Microsatellite Loci… The method is used in criminal forensics and population genetics, and was used by Ketchum et al. (2013). Unfortunately, the method requires that you know what species you are dealing with and what the lagging and leading strand sequences are in order to pick the correct primers to sequence the intervening STRs (number of repeats). The method is not suitable for totally unknown samples.  

Specific Gene Sequencing…In a manner similar to mitochondrial methods, primers can be selected to target a specific portion of a nuclear gene, usually to detect SNPs related to a specific phenotype (gene expression). Ketchum et al. (2013) used this method with several genes, as discussed below. Again, the method requires detailed knowledge of the specific species’ gene sequence to select appropriate primers. The method is not suitable for totally unknown samples.  

 Bead Array Analysis for SNPs…The method is not suitable for totally unknown samples, except as a very expensive and complex way of matching an unknown sample to a very specific known species, with no indication of the species if there is no match.  This was the Ketchum et al. (2013) approach: attempting to match unknown samples to human.  

Use of a reference sequenceUnfortunately, their method used human chromosome 11 as a reference for the sequencing, thereby both greatly reducing the length of the resulting consensus sequences and biasing them toward only highly conserved human genes.

S26… Ketchum et al. concluded that all three sequences were from an unknown male primate/human female hybrid, and that they contained a mosaic of both human and other primate segments.  Sample 26 is a black bear  Ursus americanus). From searches of Genbank with BLAST™, using the whole S26 nDNA sequence as query, it was found that S26  matched  human and other primates only 94-95%, but matched polar bear (Ursus maritimus) about 98-99%. Black bear sequences in GenBank were sparse and relatively short, but matched S26 100%.

black-bear-backcountry-movieh_1

Will someone please feed S26?

S31… Ketchum et al. correctly concluded that S31 is human. Most database hits were 100% ID modern human (Hart, 2016a).

 

 

Funnyman_3_1130x350

That’s not quite what we expected!!! 100% Modern Human???

S140… Sample 140 is a dog (Canis lupus familiaris) or less likely a wolf or coyote, not a sasquatch. Since there is a wealth of dog DNA in GenBank, no other source was queried.  Hits averaged 99% ID match to dog compared to 94% for both human and other primates (Hart, 2016a).

Here’s what S140 is… (I knew I would work a way to get Watson on the blog!!)

Dr. Haskell outlines the proper DNA sequencing of unknown subjects at the end of his report as well. A great guideline for future DNA studies.

Dr. Hart’s report can be found at:

 http://www2.isu.edu/rhi/pdf/HART-DNA-Evidence.pdf


So there we have it. It would appear that the Ketchum Study had a theory prior to testing, and went with it.

sasquatch_genome_project001001

Picture on Dr. Ketchum’s site… wow.

The results for them were either one pointing to what they wanted to believe, versus what it was actually.  Her bias, I cannot prove, but in my opinion it was there. And now, there seems to be some science behind that opinion. 

Well at least that’s how I see it.

 

Now onto some hope…

I always love when things are found. In one case the Sea Blob was finally photographed after not being seen for over 100 years. The Bathochordaeus charon, not seen in 100 years was photographed in Monterey Bay, California.

The feathered tail of a 99-million-year-old dinosaur, complete with eight vertebral segments as well as evidence of soft tissue and blood, has been found in Cretaceous amber, according to a December 8 study in Current Biology. The 1.4-inch segment likely came from a coelurosaur about the size of a sparrow, the authors wrote in their paper.

New discoveries and rediscovered animals, motivates me as we still know very little about what has inhabited, or continues to inhabit, this planet!

RIP Dallas Gilbert

Sources have told me the extremely sad news that Ohio Bigfoot researcher Dallas Gilbert has passed away.

Dallas along with his best friend an research partner Wayne Burton, had been featured on their autobiographical documentary, “Not Your Typical Bigfoot Movie.”

1391422_731917463501828_48416076_n

Dallas Gilbert

Sadly Wayne had lost his wife earlier this year, now he has lost his best friend.

Although some of Dallas’ evidence may not have stood up to some of the community standards, every once in a while he came up with some very interesting photos.

One thing that was always certain of Dallas however, he believed in everything he did and had a great big heart.

Every once in a while I would hear from Dallas and he was always so enthusiastic about doing research. That enthusiasm existed throughout his life and never strayed.

He will be missed. Our deepest condolences go out to his wife and family and to Wayne.

Keep on Squatchin’ my friend.

Till Next Time,

Fallen Stars

Today is a sad day. That’s because one year ago marks the tragic ending of a pair of paranormal investigators made famous for their appearances on Ghost Adventures.

 

m&d

 

Too often in our lives there are things that go on behind the scenes, that public folks, and yes I suppose I am one of them in circles, that some who cherish their privacy.

What most people didn’t know, myself included, was Mark and Debbie were estranged, and there were allegations Mark was abusive, however there were some reports Debbie was as well.

Previous to what I am about describe was an altercation between them about a month or two sooner which culminated in both their arrests for domestic violence.

Either way, on September 22nd, 2015, Mark went to Debbie’s apartment, shot and killed the man present there and kidnapped Debbie and took her to where he had ben staying. It turned into a standoff with the police, ending when Mark shot Debbie, killing her, and turning the gun on himself.

We take this time to remember domestic violence is a horrible thing. All too often we know someone in this situation. Take the time to help. The tools they need can be found here at the National Domestic Abuse Hotline:  http://www.thehotline.org/  or can call toll free at 1-800-799-7233


Penn State Grad in the pen.

Now lets move to a more current and fluent situation going on. The Ryan Buell arrest. Ryan was the team leader, narrator and Star of Paranormal State, which aired on A&E beginning in 2007. The show had a short run and ended abruptly.

              downloadae upfront 050510

In 2011 Ryan Buell revealed he had pancreatic cancer and at the same time he began a tour. Unfortunately people shelled out $80K (source: ABC11.com)  in prepaid ticket sales. But venues were never contacted or booked, plane tickets never booked for the people appearing on the tours. And people had to fight to get refunds. Some did, some claim they did not.

Now let’s remember, in the United States people are innocent before being proven guilty by trial. On August 25th, 2016 Ryan Buell has been accused of two felony counts of receiving stolen property and theft of leased property and one misdemeanor charge of theft of services.

14435351_10208238991066495_7675619363911874337_o

The complaint was signed on September 14th, 2016 the complaint was signed and a Magistrate ordered the arrest of Buell which was completed in Buell’s home town in Wake County, North Carolina on September 18th, 2016 and Buell now sits in jail awaiting extradition to Pennsylvania where the alleged crimes occurred.  The agency that took the complaint was the Penn State College Police Department. 

According to Buell’s mother he does not suffer from cancer.

"He’s ill, but not from cancer. His family knows the REAL story. You all need to stop believing his lies and stop enabling him….PLEASE."

14344688_10155354998094012_5136316493287757684_n

What seems to be the majority opinion is that there is a drug addiction issue here.

In an earlier Facebook post, Buell’s friend and Paranormal State director and co-star Chad Calek wrote:

“In regard to Ryan’s “condition”, after reading Ryan’s Mother’s plea to the public, I would be truly surprised if anyone at this point is unaware that Ryan is suffering from addiction. This isn’t anything new. This has been going on, at different levels, with different substances, for as long as I’ve known Ryan.  Like many of you, over time I had also come to suspect that Ryan was not suffering from pancreatic cancer for obvious reasons. Unfortunately, it appears as though my suspicions were correct, as I just learned from reading his mother’s message that Ryan does not have cancer, as his mother states this as a fact in her public plea for help. I don’t know if this means that he never had cancer, or that he is now currently cancer-free.”

Source: http://www.livinglifeinfullspectrum.com.au/general/ryan-buell-the-lies-and-deception-of-a-celebrity-ghost-hunter/

It appears Calek has removed that post and posted an extremely long post, befitting what a good friend does, documenting his journey with Ryan on Paranormal State and vowing his loyalty to him. Although there are areas of the post where he agrees Buell has fallen.

If anyone hasn’t seen recent pictures of Buell, his transformation is stunning:

     imagetwitch cast

Either way, here is a sad sight regardless of the veracity of the allegations against Buell. There is a track record of Buell mishandling monies, and blowing off his fans and disappearing. And of course the facial transformations. All the hallmarks of someone with an addiction problem.

In my opinion, eliminate the addiction and you eliminate the problems that surround not just your health, but your life as well.

The sad thing is how amazing that despite the numbers of people having addiction problems, there is no national number to call for help for drug addiction. Most of the places, the first thing they will ask is, “What insurance do you have?”

Unfortunately substance abuse doesn’t excuse actions, which if they are proved to be true in court, he will have to face up to that and rightfully so.

At any rate, we do hope that Buell gets the help he needs and turns his life around.

Remember, folks on TV are people too. They can slip and fall. It’s all about how you pick yourself up.


Another note, I hope to see some friends at the Whitehall Sasquatch Festival this Saturday (Sept. 24th) in Whitehall, New York and at the ScareFest in Lexington, Kentucky Sept 30th – Oct. 2nd, 2016. Good times…good times!

Till Next Time,

Squatch-D

One of the toughest tasks to overcome in the cryptid world is ignorance. Now there is also a fringe of this element that goes on in the paranormal world that is applicable as well. (The folks that are holier than thou thinking paranormal investigation is the “devil’s work.”)

So first let me say this disclaimer, Folks who have followed me for years know what I am about. In 2009 when we released Squatchdetective.com 2.0, we issued what I called the Five Tenets of Bigfoot Research. It was OUR mission statement.

1456438

First let me explain the Five Tenets.

Tenet 1: Keep an open mind.

By keeping an open mind it allows you to see what others may miss.

In living that, we should live that everywhere all the time. A closed mind not only makes blind to what may be going on around us, but also stymies us from life fulfillment. If I did not have an open mind, I would have never gotten into this field. It does not mean you cannot have preconceived notions, just that you should be flexible to change and challenge your own thoughts and thought processes.

 

Tenet 2: Remain objective

An open mind does not mean compromising reality.

Just because we have an open mind does not mean proven logic and science are thrown out the window. They still apply. An open mind with no barriers is fantasy. Objectivity is the perimeter that we must keep at all times. The beauty is, that works both ways.Objectivity and Open Mindedness are not antagonists, they work hand in hand in solving problems.

Tenet 3: Always tell the truth

Honesty is the best policy, never be afraid to report results that are negative towards your quest.

Here is the hitch-pin of what we do. What would we be if we weren’t honest not only with the public, but with ourselves? A person is only born with one integrity. Should it be compromised, you might as well hang up your trail cams. When I got into this field, I thought it was going to be ALL debunked. Little did I know. If you make a mistake, admit it. Don’t try to cover it up, or blame others. Nobody is perfect. To err is human. Embrace it. If you are in it for the glory, a sociopath, a hoaxer, or so self absorbed, throw this Tenet out the window.

Tenet 4: Responsibility to educate

Educating the public about the phenomena is a responsibility not an option.

We must do this. Not to advance our cause, or convince people what we believe in, they should believe in. But rather they understand the platform in which we come from is not one from silly thought, fantasy nor open mindedness without the barriers of objectivity, but rather from experience, science and solid investigative work. It is also a must to negate all the falsities and misconceptions that are said of the phenomena that casts a bad light on us as a collective.

 

Tenet 5: Expose the charlatans

Part of education is exposing the harbingers that bring junk science and misnomers to the world of Bigfoot research.

This is part of our job as well. We must stand for the truth, and when falsities and the truth are not vigorously defended, it is submission to the lies, hoaxers and misconceptions that are told of the phenomena. By saying nothing, you are standing for nothing.

 


Dealing with ignorance

Now first let me speak of something. When I posted the last blog, someone whom I had once known got on there and said I am fixated with the subject of  the last blog. We all should be. Why? Because he is still trying to get money from people, in his latest reinvention, for reasons as he explained in the past. More of the same. I didn’t fixate on him, the mainstream media did.  It wasn’t like I was looking to write another article on him, but to ignore what was said in the media would be a violation of Tenet 5.

Second, this person,  placed it on my fan page. I am sorry but that is just plain rude. He said something about me baiting him on Squatchdetective Radio over something not even related to the matter, which shows the man’s pettiness and why he has been blocked for years on my personal page. I guess asking tough questions is “baiting.”

This man, whom once called me and asked my opinion of the prior. I told him my opinions and shared some facts just after writing or in the process of writing my book on the topic: “ Fifty Large.”

His response? To get angry with me, and work with him anyway. Well, if he didn’t like what I was going to say, or value it, then why ask other than to run back to the prior and stir up trouble. Needless to say months later he called me and told me he had been burned by him. Sorry not even a crocodile tear; you were warned.

 

hypocrisy

Mind you he joined with this Hall of Shamer,  after the 2008 hoax the prior was involved in, and after he had announced his retirement from making films on cryptids, because of hoaxers, liars, etc.

So who does he turn to? Who does he think he really fooling?

What he wanted was a film award, and admitted  that to me, during the fateful day’s discussion. That’s why after announcing his “retirement” he went to the first inductee. The shot at getting the prestigious Pocono Mountain Film Festival Award. Hence…glory.

Today, by the looks of it, he still hasn’t retired, after making the rude and “lies by omission,”  comments under the guise of nicety, on my fan page. My social platforms are MY social platforms so since he has announced his retirement, many years ago, I felt obliged to retire him from his obsession with what I write.

Typical of this man’s tender ego, despite me not even naming him, I expect an email, or blog comment for approval blasting me for not being, “nice” as he put it. This guy has a habit of trying to get lawyers to shut people up about anything negative. Sound familiar?

Reference:

Look towards the bottom of the page for the story, Legal Beagle:  https://squatchdetective.wordpress.com/2015/06/19/is-it-me-or-is-this-year-a-bit-quiet/

Let’s see if reverse psychology works on this guy. 

Well when people deceive, have deceived, and having seen it firsthand, funny how facts aren’t “nice.” Sometimes, as I am with this guy, I am tired of being nice. I won’t even go into his junk science film.

But ignoring the habitual hoaxers is a mistake. It allows them to build steam, and invalidates Tenet 4. That’s why we do it. And if it’s not everyone’s cup of tea, I understand. They’ll be other blogs on other days.

I am not writing this blog for glory or popularity and definitely not money. I write this because it is how I feel and fulfillment of Tenet 4.

Mind you I do appreciate all the kind words over the years of me giving you my thoughts and calling them like I see them.

This blog is “Thoughts from the Squatchdetective,” so I get not everyone appreciates every thing I write. But what I do know is that some appreciate all, some appreciate some, and probably some appreciate none.


Squatchdetective Radio Update:

NewRadioLogo

Hey folks apologies to all, but Beyond Borders Paranormal Radio Network, has experienced severe technical difficulties resulting in the suspension of all network shows until a better delivery platform can be arranged. We thought originally this would be a shorter hiatus than it has been, but everyone hold tight, we’ll be back soon enough.  — Steve & Chris
