The History Of Funk – February 22, 2013 at 10:00pm

this episode is no longer available


This one is all about the flying saucer rage of the 1950’s. All the material comes from the 50’s, including a Long John Neble historical overview of the whole flap, first person encounter accounts, descriptions of various crafts seen, 50’s science fiction drama acknowledging this emergence of aliens in our culture, and 50’s songs on the subject. Is anybody out there?

3 Hours.
