In the first hour, writer Stephen Sindoni discussed the legend of J.C. Brown, a man who supposedly worked as a geologist for the Lord Cowdray Mining Co. in the early 20th century and claimed to have discovered an ancient Lemurian civilization in the hollows of Mt. Shasta, California.
Sindoni said he became intrigued by Lemuria and the story of Brown while searching for the subject of his next screenplay. According to Sindoni's research, Brown entered an opening into the earth somewhere on Mt. Shasta, journeyed 11 miles deep into the mountain, and found a village with streets, hidden treasure, and ancient artifacts. Brown also claimed to have found mummified bodies and 10-ft tall skeletons of the Lemurians or their descendants.
Further research revealed J.C. Brown was really a man named J.B. Body, Sindoni said. Body organized an 80-man expedition to further explore the ancient tunnel, Sindoni explained, but vanished mysteriously on June 19, 1934, before it could take place.
George hosted live Open Lines during the middle two hours of the program. The last hour featured Open Line calls from 2/25/05.
Geologist Jim Berkland spoke briefly at the top of the program about the recent earthquake that rattled the Midwest. Berkland said he accurately predicted a "rare quake of at least 4-magnitude east of the Mississippi during the first half of April."
