Hunting: I Got A Real Hobby - Listening To Real Paranormal
Lisa Lee Harp Waugh
Today when you want
to know more about the paranormal and hear the words
of those in the field first hand. Nothing is better
then Internet Paranormal Radio Talk Shows. You can
listen live depending on the time of day or search
out a archived show of your favorite Ghost Hunter,
Paranormal Research writer or big named ghost hunter
superstar or just a great subject like, ghost hunting,
UFO's, bigfoot, El Chupacabra, haunted hotels, cemeteries
and my personal favorite Necromancy.
We must all realize
that Paranormal Talk radio is a radio format containing
discussion about haunted, anomalous and topical issues.
Most shows are regularly hosted by a single individual,
or paranormal team of ghost hunters or researchers
into the unknown. And the better ones often feature
interviews with a number of different talented and
sought after guest on the known subjects we adore.
Talk radio typically includes an element of listener
participation, usually by broadcasting live conversations
between the host and listeners who "call in"
(usually via telephone) to the show. Listener contributions
are usually screened by a show's producer(s) in order
to maximize audience interest and, in the case of
commercial talk radio, attract advertisers. Generally,
the shows are organized into segments, each separated
by a pause for advertisements; however, in public
or non-commercial radio, music is sometimes played
in place of commercials to separate the program segments.
Variations of paranormal talk radio include conservative
talk, hot ghost talk, progressive talk (or liberal
talk) and spooky interpretive talk.
Talk radio is not limited to the AM band. "Non-commercial"
usually referred to as "public radio," which
is located in a reserved spectrum of the FM band,
also broadcasts talk programs. Commercial all-talk
stations can also be found on the FM band in many
cities across the US. These shows often rely less
on political discussion and analysis than their AM
counterparts, and often employ the use of pranks and
"bits" for entertainment purposes. In the
United States and Canada, satellite radio services
offer uncensored "free-wheeling" original
programming, such as Coast To Coast Am With George
Norry Show which plays live every night for the digital
airwaves also web based streaming and featured on
their terrestrial radio stations.
Starting around 2005, the technology for Internet-based
talk-radio shows became cost effective. Now, it is
possible for an individual to use a variety of services
to host an Internet-based talk-radio show without
investing any of their own capital.
Noory and Art Bell on late-night talk radio show Coast
to Coast AM
Coast to Coast AM is a late-night syndicated
radio talk show which deals with a variety of topics,
but usually ones that relate to the paranormal. It
was created by Art Bell, airs seven nights a week
10:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. Pacific Time, and is distributed
by Premiere Radio Networks. It is currently hosted
by George Noory weekdays and Art Bell (broadcasting
from Manila in the Philippines) on the weekends.
Coast to Coast mostly emphasizes very unusual topics,
and is full of personal stories related by callers.
While program content varies, most nights are focused
towards the paranormal, and subjects such as the occult,
remote viewing, haunting's, shadow people, psychic
predictions, conspiracy theories, UFOs, crop circles,
cryptozoology and science fiction literature, among
other paranormal topics. Since the terrorist attacks
carried out in the United States on September 11,
2001, the events of that day (as well as conspiracy
theories surrounding them) and current U.S. counter-terrorism
strategy have also become frequent themes. However,
more conventional topics are sometimes discussed,
with interviews with notable authors and political
talk sometimes featured.
After the theme song is played (Giorgio Moroder's
The Chase from Midnight Express), the broadcast is
typically kicked off with a reading of current events
or news stories by the host, with callers weighing
in if time permits. This is usually followed by a
lengthy interview with the evening's guest, or hours
of open phone lines. Occasionally, roundtable discussions
are held on one of the show's common topics. Since
Art Bell has resumed weekend hosting from the Philippines,
he has focused on scientific topics.
During hours of "open phone lines", calls
are taken and put on air without any screening, at
least according to original host Art Bell. More recently,
under George Noory, open lines have added topics for
callers to share their experiences or stories about
a particular issue or situation. The show has multiple
call-in numbers, of which there are always at least
five (as of 2005): for "east of the Rockies",
"west of the Rockies", first-time callers,
"international callers" and finally a "wild
card" line. They are all announced at the beginning
of each broadcast by Ross Mitchell. The shows opening,
which is now famous, had been spoofed on the now defunct
nationally-syndicated Phil Hendrie Show, with Hendrie
imitating Mitchell's trademark deep voice and repeating
his one phone number for all four lines. On special
occasions, Coast to Coast AM rolls out more numbers,
including lines that are reserved for special "themed"
callers, for example those who claim to be from other
dimensions, time periods, and those possessed by spirits.
The Halloween edition of Coast to Coast becomes Ghost
to Ghost, as listeners call in with their ghost stories.
The New Year's Eve show usually entails listeners
calling in their predictions for the coming year,
and the host (commonly Art Bell) rating the predictions
made a year earlier.
Coast to Coast was created by veteran broadcaster
Art Bell in the mid 1980s. Originally called West
Coast AM, it aired on Las Vegas, Nevada radio station
KDWN 720. Bell hosted the program each weeknight from
1:00 AM to 5:00 AM Pacific Time, live from the KDWN
studios in the Plaza Hotel in downtown Las Vegas.
In addition to his show, Bell did radio commercials
and other voiceover work for the station.
Bell's program was syndicated in 1990 as Coast to
Coast AM and began airing on more stations. For a
while it still kept the 1:00 AM starting time, but
then moved to 11:00 PM to 3:00 AM and then to the
present 10:00 PM to 2:00 AM schedule to better serve
other time zones. Soon, Bell hosted the program every
weeknight and Sundays from his residence in the town
of Pahrump, located in Nye County, Nevada (often referred
to on the program as The Kingdom of Nye). Bell is
a skilled interviewer, drawing out his callers' improbable
stories with a poker-faced but confidence-inspiring,
"Oh, really?" He has retired and returned
to the show many times since 1998; the first "retirement"
lasted two weeks, and was brought on by alleged threats
against his family. Art Bell's first successor as
host of Coast to Coast was Mike Siegel.
In 2001, Siegel stepped down as host due to pressure
from Premiere Radio Networks and Bell, as ratings
and affiliates fell sharply during his tenure. Bell
then returned to weekday hosting duties, only to depart
again the following year due to chronic back pain.
He was replaced by frequent guest-host George Noory,
and the weekday program officially became Coast to
Coast AM with George Noory by the end of 2002.
Bell made another comeback in 2003, this time replacing
Barbara Simpson and Ian Punnett on the weekend broadcasts.
Then in June 2005, he announced that he would be reducing
his role to just two Sundays a month to leave more
time for traveling with his wife. He also disclosed
that Ian Punnett and Hilly Rose would take over the
new vacancies. Previously, Rose had been a frequent
guest-host of the program, and Punnett had regularly
hosted Sunday evening broadcasts years ago. However,
following the passing of his wife, Ramona Bell, on
January 5, 2006, Art decided to return to the air
on Saturdays and Sundays, stating in an emotion-filled
broadcast on Sunday, January 22, 2006], that he needed
to keep busy. On April 8, 2006, concluding several
weeks of mourning, Art Bell, 60, married 21 year old
Airyn Ruiz, a resident of the Philippines whom he
came to know through internet "dating."
Art relocated to the Philippines and resumed hosting
the show as of June 15, 2006, but has had difficulties
with an ISDN line and hosts weekends as technology
permits. Otherwise, George Noory substitute hosts
the Sunday versions or a tape is played of a previous
show. Saturdays are guest hosted when Bell is unavailable.
On Saturday from 9 pm to 1 am Eastern Time, Punnett
hosts Coast to Coast Live, a spin-off of the original
Coast to Coast AM, covering similar topics. He occasionally
hosts the regular Saturday edition of Coast to Coast
as well, making an eight hour shift.
George Noory remains host of the weeknight editions.
He broadcasts from, alternately, Los Angeles, California
and St. Louis, Missouri, and has had a continually
positive effect on the program's ratings. He is consistently
nonjudgmental in his responses to callers' comments,
seemingly accepting at face value the credibility
of their reported experience. He has promised listeners
that he will "stick around" to host the
show through 2012; his wish is to report on whatever
might occur in relation to the many predictions of
the world ending (or at least changing significantly)
that year, as purportedly anticipated by the Mayan
calendar, alleged bible code, and a number of spiritualist
and other fantasy writers, prognosticators, predictors,
shamen, the witch doctorate, and assorted prophets.
Recently, Noory retracted that statement and now says
that he will stay until he is "dragged out."
Dreamland was another Art Bell creation, nearly identical
to Coast-to-Coast AM but less caller driven. Bell
hosted Dreamland on early Sunday evenings, until he
relinquished control of the show to Whitley Strieber.
It continued to precede Coast-to-Coast AM on most
affiliate stations on Sunday nights but moved to Saturday
night (after Premiere Radio began to syndicate Matt
Drudge) and then dropped the program entirely. It
is now heard over the Internet exclusively.
Dreamland continues to focus on many of the same
topics as its sister program, although often with
a more spiritual point-of-view, as well as an increased
emphasis on extra-terrestrials.
The name Dreamland was, in fact, at one time a radio
call sign for the control tower at the The Air Force's
Operating Location Near Groom Lake, Nevada, as described
by the government in legal documents, but more commonly
known as Area 51.
Other Coast To Coast AM greats To Listen for:
Ian Punnett has been exploring the night regularly
on Coast to Coast AM since 1998. Punnett is what many
call the shinning the star of the program. Witty and
fun to listen to. In fact, if Coast to Coast were
a branch of the military, Ian would be a veteran reservist
having served alongside every Coast to Coast host
in the show's history. For years, even while performing
his own daily talk show and attending seminary, Ian
hosted Sunday night's "Coast to Coast AM with
Ian Punnett" until leaving for a new talk radio
project in the Twin Cities and making way for George
George Knapp is a 14-time Emmy Award-winning journalist
whose reporting on Nevada’s infamous Area 51
military base was selected by UPI as Best Individual
Achievement by a Reporter (1989). Other awards include
the Associated Press’s Mark Twain Award for
news writing and the Edward R. Murrow Award for Investigative
Reporting. George is an anchor and reporter for the
CBS affiliate KLAS-TV in Las Vegas and he also writes
a weekly column for a Las Vegas newspaper.
Additionally, George hosts Coast to Coast AM on the
third and fourth Sundays of the month.
The radio show publishes a newsletter for subscribers
called After Dark. It discusses matters covered on
the show in greater detail.

BLUES TRY TUNING IN TURNING ON AND GETTING SPOOKED
About Lisa Lee Harp
LISA LEE HARP WAUGH Is a American necromancer
in the 21st century. She is by what may call a real
conduit to the world of the dead. She dressers in
ceremonial robes, draws magical circles on the floor
and commands spirits from Heaven, Hell and all places
in between to appear before her and communicate with
the living. As a teenager she studied heavily The
Black Arts by Richard Cavendish and The Grand Grimoire,
the Malleus Maleficarum and anything she could get
her hands on by the great by Eliphas Levi, John Dee
and the great beast, Aleister Crowley.
A professional Necromancer and founder
of the Sorcerers Guild of greater Houston, Texas.
Waugh has been practicing and conducting rituals for
many paranormal investigators for over 20 years. Waugh
also paints many spiritual and common murals and lives
in a small Texas town with her three dogs. She also
over the years makes ceremonial candles and is active
in ghost hunting in the deep South. Summoning the
dead to communicate with the living is a natural daily
occurrence for Waugh. "I have been doing this
since I was a child." " When I lived in
Galveston, Texas about 15 years ago, I was introduced
to the ancient rights of ceremonial Necromancy as
a ritual by a great shaman called Freebird, and because
of him and his diligence to the art, I still practice
it until this day." "However, if a spirit
has something vital to impart to you, they will call
upon you, not vice-versa and no ritual is needed".
Necromantic practitioners such as Waugh
conducts, and entails respect and reverence not only
for the spirits of the dead, but for the spirits of
Hell, Heaven and all places in between. Waugh has
a large home one room she has painted black where
she calls the good spirits. Another painted all black
where she calls the infernal spirits.
Waugh is often compared today in her facial features
and many similar practices as being a modern Dr. John
Dee. He of course was one of the most fascinating
characters of the Elizabethan period just as Waugh
is recognized as such in modern times. The events
of Dee's life are filled with science, experiments,
astrology and mathematics which he aligned with magic,
the supernatural and alchemy! All of which is Waugh's
personal passion and driven honest beliefs. These
are also stead fast traditions she does and true in
practicing openly. A few of her select followers say
she is the actual reincarnation of John Dee. Waugh
also practices astrology, and is very continuously
studying the Black Arts.
