This Sunday, Mike and Tim are joined by Michael C. Luckman and “Mr. UFO” Tim Beckley!
Michael C. Luckman is a leading expert on celebrities and their UFO and paranormal experiences. Luckman has studied ancient Sumerian, Mayan and Egyptian culture and had the rare privilege of interviewing Don Tomas Calvo, the Mayan Pope, and other leading Mayan elders from the Yucatan and Guatemala.
His book, “Alien Rock: The Rock ‘n Roll Extraterrestrial Connection” (Simon and Schuster) was read by Prince William as well as leading Hollywood celebrities.
Luckman was the first person to blow the whistle on the Roswell UFO crash, Star Wars and the roles played by former President Bill Clinton, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Ronald Reagan and Jimmy Carter in the ever widening cosmic coverup dubbed Aliengate.
Luckman also leaked the story of a secret UFO report financed by the late billionaire philanthropist Laurance Rockefeller and distributed to 1,000 movers and shakers on the world stage. John F. Kennedy Jr. requested that Luckman send him a copy of the same briefing document sent to all members of Congress.
Luckman taught the nation’s first college course on rock music at the New School for Social Research in New York City. Hundreds of colleges and universities have since added rock music to their curriculum. He is founder of the Cosmic Majorty and director of the New York Center for Extraterrestrial Research. Bill O’Reilly of the Fox Television Network’s “The O’Reilly Factor” told Luckman, “You’re the guy the aliens are going to call.”
Timothy Green Beckley is a UFO & paranormal pioneer. Since an early age his life has more or less revolved around the paranormal. The house he was raised in was thought to be haunted, he underwent out of body experiences at age six, and saw his first of three UFOs when he was ten. The event stunned him so much that he took out every book on the subject that he could find in the library. He wrote to the local media questioning the policy of silence he was convinced was taking place worldwide.
At fourteen, he was already appearing on national radio and TV, proclaiming the existence of the aliens (whom he now believes to be inter-dimensional to some extent and, as another likely possibility, the product of Nazi wartime technology.)
Beckley started his writing/publishing career in his youth. At age 14, he purchased a mimeograph machine and started putting out “The Interplanetary News Service Report.” Over the years, he has written over 50 books on everything from rock music to the MJ-12 documents. He has been a stringer for the national tabloids, such as the Enquirer, the Star and the Globe, and the editor of over 30 different magazines (most of which never lasted more than a couple of issues). His longest running effort was the newsstand publication UFO UNIVERSE, which ran for 11 years. Today he is the president of Inner Light/Global Communications.
