“Amelia Earhart: The Truth at Last” media update

I continue my constant efforts to get out the word about this most worthy cause, despite the continuing resistance I meet almost everywhere I turn.  Even many who have promised to help in the past have abandoned their pledges and refused to lift a finger to be identified with the truth about the tragic fate of Amelia Earhart.  Talk about the power of PC.

But since I have approached and been rejected by thousands, I’ve also found a few good people willing to help, so for the very few who might stop by this most obscure blog site, here’s a brief summary of upcoming radio appearances.

I was on with “Bob Burns in the Afternoon,” 1400 WOND AM, Atlantic City, N.J., on Monday, Aug. 12 at 2 p.m. Eastern Time.  Listeners out of the Atlantic City area can stream the station at www.WONDRadio.com.   Atlantic City is well known as a retirement haven for middle class seniors, and many should be interested in hearing the truth about Amelia Earhart’s sad demise on Saipan.

Don McCauley, co-host of “The Authors Show,” one of the top-ranked author radio shows in the world, will be producing an interview we do on Aug. 16 that will run on the Authors Show non-fiction page, http://www.TheAuthorsShow.com, on Sept. 4. 

On Monday, Aug. 5, veteran broadcaster Carole Marks, host of “A Touch of Grey,” a weekly show aimed at the older generation, interviewed me for about 15 minutes.  Although I wasn’t previously familiar with her work, Marks is no small timer.  According to her Web site, http://atouchofgrey.com/blog/about-us, some of Marks’ recent guests include  “John McEnroe, Jill Clayburgh, Donna Mills, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Billy Joel, Suzanne Sommers, Doris Roberts, Melanie Mayron, and Maria Muldour in addition to doctors, professors, government officials and a wide variety of authors.”

Marks’ show is heard on Sundays in the two biggest markets in the country, 970 AM, “The Answer,” serving the New York City area (2-3 p.m. EST), and KRLA 870 AM “The Answer,” Glendale, Calif., the famed Los Angeles talker, from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. EST.  Two stations, a nation apart, with the same nicknames.  I was told by Marks’ producer that our segment will air Sunday, Sept. 1, but it did not and I wasn’t informed of any changes in the schedule, which of course is extremely annoying. I await an answer about what happened as well as if and when the segment will air at all.

Finally, William Xam, host of a new Internet program, “Surrounded by Idiots,” on the Freedom Talk Radio Network, has expressed his interest in the Earhart matter.  We’ll be discussing it Sept. 25 between 6 and 8 p.m. Not sure which hour I’ll have, but you can tune in at http://www.ussamichigan.com/category/archive.

I’ll provide more specifics on these show, and hopefully others, as the information becomes available.

  1. Thank for this. I’m not convinced about TIGHAR’s claim she perished on Nikumaroro island. It seems like a money making scam and they refuse to share anything they find or allow anyone on the island to further investigate. There is no firm evidence she died there.

    Having a major interest in Amelia Earhart’s ultimate demise, I highly recommend Mike Campbell’s book, “Amelia Earhart: The Truth At Last”. How anyone could dismiss all evidence provided by those men who were on Saipan during WWII, and actually talked with local natives who saw her there, is unbelievable. In 2004, I was involved in a recovery project on Tinian. An old Marine was told by a man who worked for the Japanese on Tinian in 1937, said he helped bury Amelia & Fred there. We found no evidence, but that does not negate the probability that we just did not dig in the right place. However, having read Mr. Campbell’s book, I have no doubt that Amelia & Fred were captives on Saipan, and ultimately met their deaths there at the hands of the Japanese.

    As to Ric Gillespie’s continuing search on Nikumaroro, I personally feel he has a “good thing” going, and has successfully bilked millions of dollars out of those who continue to believe his tale. Not one piece of evidence for Amelia & Fred having been on that island has ever been produced. Should be quite interesting to see what the search for her aircraft will reveal, and how Mr. Gillespie will explain away the lack of evidence.
