Huge audio collection now added to my (free) online UFO archive - Wendy Connors' "Faded Discs" (MP3 files now with transcripts)

Building upon a previous joint project with Giuliano Marinkovic and Roderick Dyke, I have now created a new section in my free online UFO archive, for audio material.  I've started by firstly uploading to that new section a huge audio collection of historical UFO audio material collated and digitally restored by Wendy Connors as part of her "Faded Discs" project. This includes over 700 audio recordings of hundreds of hours of radio UFO news reports, lectures by prominent ufologists, interviews with UFO witnesses in various classic cases and other material.

As a bonus feature (at no additional cost, i.e. also free...), I have included transcripts of these hundreds of hours of recordings. 

I think this is the first time anyone has tried to create transcripts of these recordings. These transcripts are the first I have generated using new computer equipment and are now included my archive as text files and also as searchable PDF files.  (I have managed to combine my new hardware and new software to create hundreds of such transcripts in a day).

Until she retired from the field of UFO research due to ill-health in March 2007, Wendy Connors was the leading researcher in the preservation and dissemination of early audio recordings dealing with UFO phenomena.  Wendy was very active in obtaining audio recording, using various techniques to digitally restore them and improve their sound quality. She transferred many recordings to CDs. 

For several years before her retirement from ufology, Wendy Connors sold some CD compilations of some of those audio recordings. Details were given on her Faded Discs website. Although that website has now been defunct for several years, a cache of Wendy's website can still be found via the Internet Archive).

When Wendy retired from ufology, she placed her materials under the able protection of Rod Dyke. Roderick B. Dyke, is the archivist behind the "Archives for UFO Research" (AUFOR). He underwrote Wendy's equipment for her to properly transfer this audio material, which included a new computer system, tape recorders, and a high speed multi CD duplicator. Roderick B. Dyke also supplied a fair number of recordings to be transferred. 

Another American ufologist, Thomas Tulien, kindly forwarded a permission request from me to Rod Dyke in 2013. Roderick Dyke promptly relied that he had no problem if I wished to upload to any platform the audio materials from Wendy's research, as long as:

(1) it is made clear that no rights are implied and no materials may be used in a way to profit financially from them; and

(2) proper credit is given to (a) Wendy Connors and (b) Roderick B. Dyke as archivist of the Archives for UFO Research.

Of course, I had no problem at all with either condition.

Incidentally, there is an indication of the other material that was held by Wendy on a webpage on the Project 1947 website. I hoped in 2013 that some of that additional material will similarly be made available online. I should revisit that possibility shortly. (It has been on my ufological "to do" list for the last 10 years, with many hundreds of other possibilities...)

Most of Wendy Connors' CDs became difficult (if not impossible) to obtain until a joint project to make them freely available online in 2013 involving the person to whom Wendy Connors entrusted her materials (Roderick B. Dyke, as archivist of the Archives for UFO Researc, "AUFOR"), Giuliano Marinkovic and me.  We made the audio files available on the's Wayback Machine - but some of the links have since died (and we did not have the means back then to include automated transcripts of the recordings, which I personally find a useful additional resource for UFO research).

(When I was involved in that project in 2013, I mentioned that I thought Giuliano Marinkovic was then the current leader in the field of archiving/disseminating ufological audio material and that I couldn't think of any active researcher that was more capable of carrying on the work done by Wendy Connors. Ten years later, my thinking hasn't changed one iota. Working with Giuliano is always a pleasure as he not only does the part of a project that he agrees to do, but often goes further).

Annex Disc 1: Ufology: A Primer in Audio (Second Edition) Volume One (1947 - 1964)



Track Listing

01: SEARCH for the FLYING SAUCERS with Walter Kiernon

Date of Broadcast: 07.10.1947
Running Time: 00:13:09

Synopsis: This is the first public affairs program on the Flying Disc phenomena being observed and reported in the United States and the United Kingdom. The phenomenon was not frightening to people and most reports were taken lightly. This recording is an example.

02: VARIETY PROGRAMS on UFOs 1947 - 1950

Dates of Broadcast: 07.13.1974 & 03.28.1950
Running Time: 00:30:00

Synopsis: Although technically these are not public service programs per se, this medley gives a rare example of how the flying discs and flying saucers were being perceived at the beginning of the modern age of UFOs and its influence on the population. First, Take it or Leave it program monologue from 07.10.1947. Second, Jack Parr Show does a comedy sketch regarding the flying discs on 07.13.1947 and finally the Fibber McGee & Molly comedy program from 03.28.1950.

03: CASE for the FLYING SAUCERS with Edward R. Murrow

Date of Broadcast: 05.00.1950
Running Time: 00:27:46

Synopsis: A public affairs program that includes a 1947 telephone interview with Kenneth Arnold, plus several rare recordings of early witnesses to Flying Discs in 1947, 1948 and 1949.

04: THINGS in the SKY

Date of Broadcast: 00.00.1952
Running Time: 00:18:19

Synopsis: A John Keel production for the Armed Forces Radio Services (AFRS) while stationed in Germany during the Korean War. This is an excessively rare recording, because all copies were on acetate discs, which deteriorated rapidly and could catch fire easily. Just as important, John Keel gives a short background to the program and the players, including what many of them did following their stint in the military. This is from his original tape recording of 11.18.1968, which is housed and archived (including his notes) at the Faded Discs Archive. The original recording was done on a compact reel-to-reel tape recorder with a 1.5-inch reel and recorded at 1 7/8 ips!


Broadcast: 00.00.1952
Running Time: 00:24:30

Synopsis: An Australian radio docudrama based upon an actual event. This episode is about a man who fakes being attacked by a flying saucer. This is a rare recording and the earliest known recording that uses the acronym, U.F.O.

06: AMERICA's TOWN MEETING: Flying Saucers, Fact or Illusion?

Date of Broadcast: 11.21.1953
Running Time: 00:31:58

Synopsis: An infamous public affairs debate regarding the UFO phenomenon by Major Donald E. Keyhoe, USMC Retired and Jonathan M. Leonard, Science Editor of Time magazine. This program was used as a vehicle to promote Keyhoe's second book, Flying Saucers from Outer Space, Keyhoe was the second writer to introduce the subject to the public with his article for True magazine in late 1949 and his first book based upon that research entitled, Flying Saucers are Real. Keyhoe would later become the second Director of the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena (NICAP). By all intents and purposes, Donald E. Keyhoe was the first Ufologist and second only to Kenneth Arnold for bringing the subject to the public.


Date of Broadcast: 10.13.1954
Running Time: 00:26:12

Synopsis: An early religion-based program that takes a look at the possibility of contact with a flying saucer and its occupants from a religious point of view. Historically important recording, as it refers to actual events, such as the Washington National Airport case of UFOs over the Capitol two years earlier and Air Technical Intelligence of the USAF. This recording also showed that the USAF and the government position was wrong, in declaring that disclosure to the pubic, would cause mass panic and harm all religions.

08: GRAY BARKER RADIO SHOW, Clarksburg, West Virginia

Date of Broadcast: 07.20.1957
Running Time: 00:08:29

Synopsis: Barker discusses the Green Castle, Indiana case. Barker's radio show was very short lived and he was a good friend with famous radio personality, Hugh McPhearson, who also played interviews he had with witnesses to UFOs on his own radio program.

09: ARMSTRONG CIRCLE THEATER: UFO, the Enigma of the Skies

Date of Broadcast: 01.22.1958
Running Time: 00:52:00

Synopsis: Hosted by Douglas Edwards. Guests were: Major Donald E. Keyhoe, USMC Ret., Col. Spencer Whedon, USAF and Dr. Donald Menzel. This is the program that allegedly censored Keyhoe, causing hard feelings between both himself and the United States Air Force over their secrecy regarding the UFO phenomenon. Kenneth Arnold declined to appear at the last minute and his explanation can be heard on the 03.26.1958 Long John Nebel Party Line recording listed further down in this guide. Captain Edward J. Ruppelt, first and former Director of the USAF Project Blue Book was also scheduled to appear on the program, but could not get a leave of absence from his employer to attend the program. Tracks 09, 10 and 12 relate to this infamous controversy.


Date of Broadcast: 03:25:1958
Running Time: 00:25:30

Synopsis: Major Donald E. Keyhoe, USMC, Ret. Is interviewed regarding the alleged censorship on the Armstrong Circle Theater and his / NICAP's position regarding UFOs and the Extra-terrestrial Hypothesis (ETH).


Tracks 11 - 16

Long John Nebel was the first to bring the concept of Talk Radio to fruition. He had various guests and regulars who discussed many topics of interest. His program ran from 12:00 am to 5:30 am, six nights a week. He is known for the eccentricities of guests and provided a forum for both serious researchers of Ufology and the Contactees. Following his radio talk show, Nebel appeared on television in the 1960s and early 1970s with his talk format. Below is a selection of well-known Nebel programs dealing with the subject of UFOs and Ufology.


Date of Broadcast: 11.25.1956
Running Time: 01:01:54

Synopsis: Guest: Dr. Ivan T. Sanderson, biologist/zoologist and naturalist. He was also a spy and Intelligence operative for the U.S. and UK, although nobody knew at that time a few people know now. This aspect of his background was revealed during a meeting in Seattle, WA in 1959. This data, on the original recordings, is archived at Faded Discs. Sanderson discusses his Biological Theory of UFOs. His theory remains popular as one of the theories regarding the origin of UFOs, but pales to both the Extra-Terrestrial Hypothesis (ETH) and the possibilities that UFOs are inter-dimensional conveyances or time travelers. Sanderson also wrote a book about his theory.


Date of Broadcast: 03.11.1957
Running Time: 00:06:26

Synopsis: Jay Glick, a passenger on an American Airlines flight from NY to Puerto Rico, relates the aircraft's encounter with a UFO. This incident is mentioned in the next track.


Date of Broadcast: 03.26.1958
Running Time: 04:06:22

Synopsis: Guests: Major Donald E. Keyhoe, USMC Ret., Cortland Hastings, Charles Ledham, Jules B. St. Germaine, Ben Isquith and Dave Fields. Historically important recording covering the rise of the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena (NICAP), alleged Keyhoe censorship and the influence of the Contactee Movement on legitimate UFO investigations. Commercials edited out during the Keyhoe visit. Ben Isquith joins the group after Keyhoe departs. Nebel goes too great lengths to promote NICAP and every one of the guests were members. This aspect, however, did not give Keyhoe any leniency as far as tough questions asked of him by the other guests. For all intents and purposes, Keyhoe and the U.S. Air Force had become enemies over the censorship issue. Last twenty minutes of this program is missing.


Date of Broadcast: 08.18.1958
Running Time: 02:48:30

Synopsis: Guests: Dr. Ivan T. Sanderson, Lester del Rey (Science Fiction Writer), Hans Stefan Santeson (Editor of Fantastic Universe magazine), Ben Ahman (Swedish Journalist), Ben Isquith, Vyacheslav Vawalischin (former USSR Military Officer) and translator, Jim Runyon. An early discussion of the possibility that UFOs are man-made and came from German technology (Horten Brothers, etc.). This controversy continues to this day with theories regarding the German influence in flying saucers during and following World War ll. Ben Ahman gives an interesting insight into the Ghost Rockets being observed over the Baltic in 1946. Lester del Rey is quite opinionated and argumentative, with a closed mind on the topic of UFOs in general. Considering that he was a science fiction writer of note, one would tend to think that a man with his reputation would at least be more open-minded on the reality of the UFO phenomena. It is quite odd to listen to his ranting. In future years others would arrive on the airways and in print, proclaiming Ufology to be a foolish endeavor, yet none of them would ever take the time to do any lengthy and long term research on the data collected, then be offended if they were not triumphant in the debate. These people were not, and are not, rational and provide a disservice to the subject itself and the people who diligently try to do the work that science and government have defaulted on, since the beginning of the modern age of the phenomenon. Logic would dictate that the fields of science and government have been negligent regarding this enigma to science. Last few minutes of this portion of the program are missing.


Date of Broadcast: 10.05.1958
Running Time: 04:05:30

Synopsis: Alternate title is Flying Saucers and the Straight Line Mystery, which was used after the program aired. Guests: Isabel Davis of Civilian Saucer Intelligence - NY (CSI-NY), Hans Stefan Santeson (Editor of Fantastic Universe magazine), Dr. Ivan T. Sanderson, Lester Del Ray and Ben Isquith. Isabel Davis was representing one of the oldest UFO investigation groups with such early luminaries as Max Mebane and Ted Bloecher. Debate covers many aspects of Ufology, including Little Green Men, Contactees and Aimé Michel's newest theory on UFOs in his book, Flying Saucers and the Straight Line Mystery. Davis was a thorough researcher and was close friend to Major Donald E. Keyhoe, Director of the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena (NICAP), of which Davis was also a member. Dr. Sanderson and science fiction writer, Lester Del Rey, have an on-air heated exchange over various topics. However, when all is said and done, this recording was an early attempt to get Ufology separated from the Contactees and Isabel Davis, was a champion in showing the world the difference. She is an unsung hero in the field of Ufology.

16: Excerpt from the Long John Nebel Party Line Program

Date of Broadcast: 11.16.1959
Running Time: 00:56:00

Synopsis: Jackie Gleason, Frank Edwards and Gray Barker make the first 3-way telephone conference call in radio history. Gleason criticizes Gray Barker's publishing the Contactee material as if it was true.

21: JOE PYNE Show

Date of Broadcast: 00.00.1960
Running Time: 00:22:28

Synopsis: Dr. Frank Stranges takes the hot seat on the Joe Pyne Show. He is promoting his new book, Stranger at the Pentagon that alleges a man by the name of Val Thor is known by the government and is from outer space. Stranges attempts to be serious, but Pyne obviously knows a sham when he bumps into it. Not one of Frank Stranges' better media days.


Date of Broadcast: 01.25.1961
Running Time: 00:24:00

Synopsis: Jules B. St. Germaine, a regular guest on Long John Nebel's Party Line on WOR-NY, is interviewed regarding the show and the Contactees who have appeared on it. A very historical recording and rare in that two interviewers of the early Contactees compare notes on how legitimate Ufology was wrongfully overshadowed by them. Original recordings from St. Germaine's collection are maintained at Faded Discs.


Date of Broadcast: 05.21.1961
Running Time: 00:15:00

Synopsis: Texas Countdown was a production of WFAA-TV, Fort Worth, TX. The program was a weekly summary of events in the local aerospace industry. Guest: Texas Ufologist William E. Daniels of Project Target fame. This segment also gives the silliness surrounding the early space race with the Soviet Union and Cold War paranoia.

Date of Broadcast: 12.27.1961
Running Time: 00:19:18

Synopsis: Major Donald E. Keyhoe is interviewed regarding the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena (NICAP) and his conflict with the United States Air Force.


TRACKS 25 - 30

Earl J. Neff of the Cleveland Ufology Project (CUP), teamed with Harvey Morgan of KYW radio, Cleveland, OH in 1962 to do a weekly series of half-hour programs entitled, Ufology Round-Table. When KYW became WKYC the series was discontinued, but Neff remained a regular guest host on Harve Morgan's new show, Contact and continued with the Ufology Round-Table designation when he appeared on the program. The following recordings represent the programs recovered to date. Although no exact number of programs available is known, it is estimated that Neff and Morgan did approximately 52 such programs. One of the more interesting aspects of this early radio program is that the FCC wouldn't allow two-way telephone conversations with listener call-ins, so Harve Morgan would take calls from listeners and then relate the question to the appropriate guest. Long John Nebel's phone conversations with listeners were always recorded to avoid running into problems with the FCC and contained the required Beep every 10 seconds.


Date of Broadcast: 12.27.1962
Running Time: 00:25:00
Program: 13

Synopsis: USAF secrecy and general UFO topics. Guest Host: Earl J. Neff. Guests: Rick Hilberg and Bob Miller of the United Saucer Council. Program was devoted to young Ufologists and the Toledo Area Aerial Phenomena Investigation Bureau (TAAPIB). Opening sequence is missing.

Running Time: 00:26:34
Program 15
Synopsis: Program is devoted to questions from listener call-ins, which Earl J. Neff, Bob Grove and Harve Morgan, attempt to answer. Good grass roots radio that did by far better with the subject of Ufology than the Jeff Rense and George Noory's of today. Today the Internet is the preferred method of communicating with others about Ufology and this more, personal method of Ufology in days past, taught and shared Ufology in a most unique way.


Date of Broadcast: 01.17.1963
Running Time: 00:53:24
Program 16

Synopsis: Mr. X (a USAF officer they call "Joe"), joins Earl J. Neff, Bob Grove and Harve Morgan. The program's normal thirty minutes is expanded this night. Morgan plays a tape of Major Donald E. Keyhoe talking about flying saucers and the United States Air Force.


Date of Broadcast: 01:24:1963
Running Time: 00:29:00
Program 17

Synopsis: Wesley Fitch joins Earl J. Neff and Harve Morgan to discuss his collection of UFO photographs and the evidence they might portray. It is hilarious having photographs described on the radio. However, it did give insight to listeners who were visually impaired. Not exactly a medium for photographic evidence discussion. Also, two witnesses to alleged UFOs are interviewed.


Date of Broadcast: 01.31.1963
Running Time: 00:29:44
Program 18

Synopsis: Joining the weekly discussion with Earl J. Neff, Bob Grove and Harve Morgan, was Bob Novak, an engineer, who spoke on UFO propulsion and anti-gravity.

Date of Broadcast: 00.00.1964
Running Time: 00:27:30

Synopsis: Television panel show hosted by Harry Clarkson. Guests: Dr. Mark Harrison, Chairman of the Physics Department at American University, Dr. B. L. Clark, Astronomer at the U.S. Naval Observatory, Dr. Norman L. Trot, Theologian and George Adamski, Contactee.

48 Tracks
Total Running Time: 35:45:50

01: George Adamski relates his contact with Orthon in November, 1952. This is actually the first recording done by Dr. A. G. Dittmar in 1953. 30:00

02: The World of Maldek: George Hunt Williamson's channeling of Hatton in the Solex Mal language giving the history of the legendary planet, Maldek. This was recorded in late 1953. George Hunt Williamson accompanied George Adamski in November, 1952, when Adamski claims he met Orthon. This recording is difficult to listen to due to the blend of music, voice change during the alleged channeling of Hatton and the use of the so-called Solex Mal language. 25:00

03: George Adamski is interviewed on the Art Linkletter TV show to discuss his book, The Flying Saucers Have Landed, 10.19.1953. 7:00

Annex Disc 7 : CEIII Humanoids (An Audio Retrospective) 

34 Tracks
Total Running Time: 13:05:56


Although accounts of humanoids piloting flying saucers go back many decades, this scenario was not initially publicized widely and soon forgotten by the general public. In 1952 radio newsman Frank Edwards startled the listeners with an interview with William Squyres, who observed a UFO with occupants over Pittsburg, Kansas in 1952. A little over a decade later the UFO occupant scenario began evolving to cover alien abductions and very strange creatures. This compilation deals with humanoid encounters that did not result in known alien abductions which are available on an earlier compilation CE lV

Annex Disc 12 : 1974 - 1977 Audio case reports National UFO Reporting Center

Research Recordings of Robert Gribble's National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC) Seattle, WA

1974 - 1977

252 Tracks - Total Running Time: 44:00:25

Robert Gribble began his research into the unidentified flying object phenomena in 1955. He began the Aerial Phenomena Research Group (APRG), which circulated a newsletter detailing new cases.

In late 1974, Gribble converted the Phenomena Research Reporting Center to allow the public a place they could call and report their experiences to a nonjudgmental researcher. Commonly known as the UFO Reporting Center or UFO Central during the early years, it became known internationally as the National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC). First calls received began on November 11, 1974.

Over a period of twenty years, Gribble received thousands of telephone calls from witnesses of actual encounters with UFOs, which were recorded and data collected. On-site investigations and interviews were conducted by Gribble and his associates and accompanying documentation for cases were archived.

Robert Gribble retired from research in 1994 and Peter Davenport took over the on-going data collection of the National UFO Reporting Center. In 2004, Robert Gribble donated his research materials to Wendy Connors, culminating in this audio archive of research material. Documentation accompanying these recordings are maintained along with the original recording sources, including the names, addresses and telephone numbers of all witnesses. What you hear is raw, minimally edited, research. Most of the interviews were done within minutes of the encounter or while the encounter was happening.

These recordings are of actual witness interviews to UFO encounters and were selected to show a broad based overview of the UFO phenomena being observed and reported.

It makes no difference whether a person believe, or not believe, in UFOs. But the reality is found here and is indesputable. Nobody, as yet, has proven any of the theories of where these objects originate and why they are encountered. Robert Gribble has made the truth abundantly clear…and you'll hear it directly from people of all walks of life. For the seasoned researcher, this audio data is priceless as the missing half of research that written data could never convey…the human element.

The journey you are about to take will certainly amuse or concern you, but most importantly, I hope it teaches you something new and maybe, just maybe, something quite wonderful for yourself and humanity, as we continue our human journey to the stars.
