During Open Lines, Carlos in Miami, Florida, recalled the time he received tragic news from Argentina of his father's imminent death. Carlos said he immediately embarked to see his dad, but did not make it in time. Devastated by the loss, he remembered being in a cemetery and hearing his father's voice tell him, "Carlos, the body means nothing. What matters is your spirit. I am returning to Miami with you." Unsure if his grief had made up the message, Carlos revealed that shortly after he returned home he visited a synagogue, where a rabbi quoted the father's cemetery proclamation verbatim. There are no coincidences, Carlos noted. Andrew from Ashland, Wisconsin, phoned in to inquire about a sky spiral, similar to the one spotted in Norway, recently seen in Jordan and Israel, as well as share instances of the number '666' that he has discovered in several Looney Tunes episodes. In one such cartoon, "A pest in the house," Daffy Duck shows a guest to a hotel room numbered '666'. Andrew wondered if anyone else may have noticed this strange pattern.
A caller named Landon told George about an unusual sighting he had on his drive to Lake Tahoe, Nevada. According to Landon, a wispy cloud in a deep blue sky caught his attention as he approached Lake Crowley, California. A closer look revealed what appeared to be white dots coming out of the cloud, Landon said, noting how the UFOs moved in various formations. The objects were shiny, could be seen through his polarized sunglasses, were definitely different than planes, and disappeared after ten minutes, Landon added. Jack in Lancaster, Kentucky, shared his remarkable story of surviving a horrific accident involving a jet-powered car. The fast-moving vehicle broke in half and struck him at 250mph, Jack explained, severing both legs and pushing his organs into his chest cavity. While in the hospital recovering, Jack revealed that he had died for 15 minutes, experienced the afterlife, and been brought back. Blind since then, Jack reported how he continued on with life, enrolling at the University of Kentucky and authoring a book about his amazing account.
In the first hour, medium and meteorologist Rob Gutro talked about his interactions with earth-bound ghosts. Gutro recalled having his first paranormal experience as a teen, when he saw an apparition of his deceased grandfather materialize before his eyes. He spoke about the challenge of learning to separate his own thoughts from those of ghosts trying to contact him. Gutro credited falling in love with helping him more accurately tune into ghosts, noting that any positive emotion can give an entity power to communicate with the living. He said some ghosts linger here because of unresolved emotional issues, others do not realize they are dead, and some simply do not wish to leave their houses. Gutro likened earth-bound ghosts to prisoners in isolated jail cells, able to see spirits that have passed on but unable to communicate with them. He also shared an amazing paranormal experience with his father's ghost: "I felt two arms come around me, wrap around me, like I was getting a big hug from behind," he remembered.
