Fox in the Gulf!
This week our guest is James Fox, a filmmaker who has, up until now, been known in the UFO field for his fine documentary films. His latest is I Know What I Saw, which ran on the History Channel last year.
But tonight, his subject is the tragedy in the Gulf and I expect that the show will be heartbreaking and infuriating and very, very important.
It is not to be missed.
Meanwhile, here is James's bio and background (from Coast to Coast AM):
James Fox was born in England and raised in America by his father, Charles Fox, who wrote for newspapers and magazines like Rolling Stone, Playboy, Harpers and the Catholic Digest. When James was three years old, his father was struck with Multiple Sclerosis. For many years, James assisted his father as he traveled to locations for news stories. They conducted interviews with people ranging from theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking for Esquire to racecar driver Dan Gurney for Car & Driver.
After completing two years of education in Paris at the Sorbonne, James moved to San Francisco. He attended San Francisco State University where he finished his degree in French.
James was very skeptical when a close friend first introduced him to the field of UFOs in 1993. However, when a reliable acquaintance corroborated the first story, James began to investigate. In 1998 he completed and sold his first major documentary UFOs: 50 Years of Denial? to the Discovery Channel. It included such notables as Apollo 14 Astronaut Edgar Mitchell and Col. Philip J. Corso, who was in charge of the foreign technology desk at the Pentagon during the Eisenhower administration.
The success of UFOs: 50 Years of Denial? has led James to travel around the world for four years in pursuit of further evidence. For his new film, Out of the Blue, James interviewed witnesses including President Gerald Ford, Mercury Astronaut Gordon Cooper, Cosmonaut Pavel Papovich in Star City, Russia, and five-star Admiral Lord Hill Norton in England.
Please listen to this broadcast and then, if you are so moved, help in the efforts to try to save our southern coast and the Gulf of Mexico. We talk to filmmaker James Fox and Florida resident David Cosby about their first-hand experiences with this horrible, horrible mess. It's a little bit long, with lots of stuff during the breaks and afterwards that you didn't hear on the live show, but so worth it.
Was today's show a pre-recorded show? I tried to get into the chat but it asked for a password, did you guys pop in ours at all? I just got back from dinner
