February 01, 2016 05:30 PM PST
Eric and Marie wrap up the month of January welcoming our friend Roberrt Murch to the program. We're both excited to have Robert join us this Sunday night to talk about something near and dear to his heart, the Ouija or Talking Boards. Find out about the history, controversy and myths associated with this famous communcation device. Is it all a game? Tune in this Sunday night as Robert joins us to share his expertise and knowledge on this fascinating topic, this week on BTE Radio.
Robert Murch is the world’s foremost collector, historian, and expert on Ouija® and talking boards and serves as the “Chairman of the Board” for the Talking Board Historical Society which he founded. His bizarre relationship with Ouija began after watching the movie Witchboard in 1986, a century after the talking board made its debut. Murch purchased his first antique Ouija board in 1992, and became obsessed with unraveling the mystery of its origins. Since then he’s devoted his life to researching the history of the Ouija board and its founders, with Murch often traveling the world to track down descendants of all those involved with the introduction of the Mystifying Oracle®.
Murch showcases his research and knowledge on his websites robertmurch.com williamfuld.com and the upcoming talkingboards.com often collaborating with Hasbro, Winning Moves, USAopoly, TCG Toys, and ToyCo (producers of the Ouija board today) and on various films, including Ouija, Inherent Vice, What Lies Beneath, Sugar & Spice, and Drive-Thru. He has also consulted on or appeared in numerous TV programs featuring Ouija, including 30 Odd Minutes, TNT’s Rizzoli & Isles, A&E’s Storage Wars and Paranormal State, Travel Channel’s Mysteries at the Museum and Ghost Adventures, Showtime’s Bullshit!, Smithsonian Channel’s My Million Dollar Invention, HGTV’s Who’s Lived in my House?, and CBS Sunday Morning. The Smithsonian Magazine consulted Bob for a popular article on Ouija boards and featured him and his research on the topic while reddit tapped him to host an IAmA on all things Ouija.
Murch is a frequent guest on Coast to Coast AM and an accomplished international lecturer, speaking at museums and conferences around the world. He is currently collaborating with Brandon Hodge to create a book on the definitive history of spirit communication. Ever the pioneer, Murch was one of the first same-sex couples legally married in the United States and lives with his husband, Gary Halteman, in Boston, Massachusetts. What’s next for Murch? You’ll just have to ask the Ouija board!

January 11, 2016 11:56 AM PST
This week we welcome Author and investigator Nigel Kerner to the program as we'll be discussing Aliens living among us as well as abductions. Nigel is the author of two books: Grey Aliens and the Harvesting of Souls (Inner Traditions/Bear & Company) and The Song of the Greys (Hodder & Stoughton). He has just completed his third book ‘The Margins of Forever’ which will be released next year. Nigel has done several radio interviews, including Coast to Coast, Jeff Rense, the Veritas show and Paranormal Podcast. Join us this week for what is sure to be a thought provoking and interesting discussion about Aliens among us this week on BTE Radio.
About Nigel: Nigel Kerner is an author and freelance journalist. He was born in Sri Lanka, his mother from a British planting family and his father an officer in the British Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm. This international family base provided the background for an obsessive and serious interest in international human affairs and how these interface with science, religion and philosophy.
He has felt driven, from his young years, to expose the humbug and hypocrisy in modern scientific and religious and social thinking. His formal graduate education is in biomedical science and human behavioural psychology.
His fascination with the puzzling and enigmatic phenomenon of UFOs resulted in his first book 'The Song of the Greys' published by Hodder & Stoughton in 1997. This serious work on the subject is now noted world-wide for its radical view on the phenomenon. His latest book, 'Grey Aliens and the Harvesting of Souls' published by Inner Traditions/Bear & Company is the second in a trilogy about the UFO phenomenon and its social repercussions on humanity. His books and numerous articles have established his unique thesis as part of the canon of serious literature on the subject.
Nigel Kerner lives with his wife and family on his estate in middle England. He has a passionate interest in projects on behalf of the deprived and disadvantaged of developing nations. He is at present working with his family and a team of European friends and volunteers on a medical and agro-development project done on behalf of the rural poor in a country in the Far East. This takes up much of his spare time.
His hobbies include reading science literature and journals, wild-life videography, wildlife conservation activities, singing and song writing. His sporting passions are Cricket and Rugby Union.

December 08, 2015 07:43 PM PST
Nothing brings smiles than holiday music. The master of Holiday music are returning to BTE Radio this week with a new twist on Holiday music for the Christmas season Ed Douglas and Gavin Goszka are back with us to share music from their new album Christmas: A ghostly gathering. Ed and Gavin will be sharing behind the scenes details and tracks from their new holiday album as only Midnight Syndicate deliver. So you better watch out, you better not cry, Midnight Syndicate is coming to BTE Radio this week!
For almost two decades, composers Edward Douglas and Gavin Goszka have been known as Midnight Syndicate, creating symphonic soundtracks to imaginary films that facilitate a transcendental and adventurous escape into the secret dimensions of the mind's eye. To many of their fans, they are Gothic music pioneers brewing a signature blend of orchestral horror music and movie-style sound effects. To others, they remain the first "haunted house band" that forever changed the Halloween music genre and became a staple of the October holiday season. And some know them as the duo that created the first official soundtrack to the legendary Dungeons & Dragons roleplaying game. Their critically-acclaimed works are reminiscent of sweeping, complex masterpieces by artists such as James Horner, Danny Elfman, Black Sabbath and King Diamond and have been featured as a part of groundbreaking films, television shows, video games and at haunted attractions, amusement parks and live performances worldwide.
Midnight Syndicate has released a Yuletide-inspired album, entitled Christmas: A Ghostly Gathering. The new album features the band's unique twist on classic holiday carols blended with new and original material. "Our goal was to treat each song in a way that would merge familiarity with originality," said Gavin Goszka. "There are definitely recognizable elements, but plenty of additional original material as well. It also incorporates the widest instrument palette we've used to date and represents what we consider to be the most varied collection of songs we've ever released. There are serenely beautiful moments here alongside more intense, darker tracks, and the end result is a thoroughly compelling and involving listening experience." "With so many Christmas-themed albums out there, we wanted to make this collection uniquely our own," added Edward Douglas. "I think we were able to do that."
