'Friday the 13th' Open Lines

Date

HostGeorge Noory

GuestsOpen Lines, Marc Zicree, Anne Serling, Pat Boone, Christian Wilde, Richard C. Hoagland

During Open Lines, George offered a special 'Friday the 13th' line. A caller from Beaumont, TX who was born on Friday the 13th said as a child he became convinced he was doomed because of society's negative view of '13.' He thought his fate was certain when the Apollo 13 spacecraft was crippled by an explosion in 1970, but after the crew made it, he changed his outlook on the number.

One caller recalled a hunting trip in Idaho where he and his companions encountered three Bigfoot creatures. According to the caller, the large, hairy, bad-smelling creatures put campfire rocks in front of the tent doors and took away the deer they had killed. Several callers phoned in with their memories of The Twilight Zone.

In the last half-hour, George spoke with Richard C. Hoagland about the space shuttle, then played a 13-minute audio excerpt from Hoagland's recent speech before the Libertarian Party National Nominating Convention.

Rod Serling

In the first hour, writer Marc Zicree and Anne Serling, daughter of Rod Serling, talked about the life of The Twilight Zone creator as well as his induction into the Sci-Fi Museum Hall of Fame.

News Updates

At the top of the show, George was joined by entertainer Pat Boone, who commented on the high price of oil. He mentioned the website oilsolution.org. Then, author Christian Wilde briefly discussed the sudden death of NBC journalist Tim Russert.
