Good Show on Sunday

We had a really good show on Sunday. Eric Altman, director of the Pennsylvania Bigfoot Society, was the guest, and he told some really interesting stories. Richie from California also called in and told us what was going on in his area, and we also discussed the fact that Bigfoot may use railroad tracks and power lines as a means of travel. I donated a signed copy of the book that everyone wants to read but no one wants to buy to the East Coast Bigfoot Conference.

Show Format Has Changed

The show will now be on every two weeks instead of weekly. This is due to show content and things going on in my personal life.

Good Show Last Sunday

We had a good but not great show last Sunday. Henry and I shot the breeze about various Bigfoot topics and Rich from California called in to talk about some recent stuff that's been going on in his area, and I gave him an assignment concerning leaving fruit out for the creatures in his area. This Sunday we will have Eric Alman, of the Pennyslvania Bigfoot Society as the guest. Thanks for listening.

An Announcement

Hello Everyone,
I have been doing alot of thinking and reevaluating of things going on in my life concerning the show. Unless things change with the show October 19 will be the last show. Whether this will be permanent or an indefinite hiatus I have not decided yet. Several factors have led me to this point. #1. The problem with guests. In the past month I have asked 20 different people to be guests on the show, and they were either A. unavailable, or so they tell me, B. they have already been on every other show and don't want to come onto The Bigfoot Mystery to talk about what they have already talked about on those other shows, or C. they have a problem with one of my co-hosts, a very silly reason in my opinion. I do not like to rehash old material on the show and have alot of dead air time. #2 I feel that The Bigfoot Mystery has covered every topic you could think of concerning Bigfoot, and I feel we are running out of things to talk about on the show. #3 There are over a dozen Bigfoot shows alone on blogtalk radio. I counted them. I feel I am now competing with them, and I don't like to compete with anyone. Perhaps The Bigfoot Mystery has run its course. #4 the listener base. I have noticed on all the other shows that the chatroom listeners has exceeded 50, when The Bigfoot Mystery has yet to reach 45. I have done everything in my power to promote the show, and despite what the ratings on blogtalk say I should have more listeners than I do now. Whether it's content of the show, its scheduled airtime, dislike of myself or my co-hosts, or some other factor I do not know. #5 Harrassing and insulting e-mails concerning the show. Every show host probably goes through this. I have had one listener contact me several times this week insulting myself and the show, and no matter what I tell them they keep doing it. It is getting tiresome. You can educate ignorance, but stupidity is forever. That particular listener falls into the latter in that phrase. #6 losing interest in doing the show. At first when I started the show I had a lot of fun doing it. Now I feel it is something I have to do, and when it's not fun anymore to do, then it is time to look at it differently. I'm not even asked to be a guest on any of the other shows, despite having my own encounter and publishing a book about it, but I do thank HenryMay for having me on as a guest in October on his show. I have never done anything to personally hurt anyone or said anything negative about anyone. If you are one of those who thinks I have, then I deeply apologize. I also think a big thank you needs to go out to Henry May. Henry has been there for the show no matter what and has busted his butt for The Bigfoot Mystery. I do think appreciation for everything Henry has done has been overlooked and he has been treated unjustly in some corners of the Bigfoot "community". If there was something I could have done to rectify that for him I would have done it a long time ago. If I can find someway to reward Henry I will do it. Thank you so much, Henry. Some who read this may not agree with its content, and that is fine. It is how I feel. If some out there feel I'm complaining or whining, then so be it. I don't feel I am, though. If there are those out there who'd like to see The Bigfoot Mystery continue, then I needyour help, whether it's suggestions, putting me in contact with potential guests, or even being a guest yourself on the show, then I welcome them all. Thank you for listening.

Future of the show

I am not sure whether or not to continue on with the show. I seem to be running out of things to talk about. It seems like I've covered almost every subject concerning Bigfoot on the show. I feel I'm rehashing old material by talking about the same things over and over again. I have tried to get guests to be on the show who have not been on the show yet, but they're either unavailable, have already been on a few other shows and don't want to do anymore, or refuse to come on the show because they have an issue with one of my co-hosts, which is a very silly reason if you think about it. Perhaps this show has run its course. I'd like to think it hasn't. I will try to maintain some hope for this month and see what happens. Thanks for listening.

Good Show on Sunday

We had a good show on Sunday for it being a call-in show. Eric Altman called the show to plug the 2008 East Coast Bigfoot Conference and to tell me he liked my book. Steve Summar (Ole Bub) called into the show and stayed on with us and we had some interesting discussions. Henry did book reviews on The Hoopa Project and on my book.
