High Strangeness
Ufology has always had its share of unique strangeness as it has evolved. This compilation covers the years 1952 to 1976, when hairy beasts wandered out of flying saucers, Men in Black silenced witnesses to UFOs and monsters prowled the countryside. You will find lectures, actual experiences related and the after-effects of this high strangeness that remains, even today, one of the most endearing chapters in Ufology. So come along and listen to Gray Barker, John Keel, Norman Oliver, Stan Gordon, Dr. Herbert Hopkins, Hayden Hewes, Dr. Ivan T. Sanderson and Albert K. Bender as they return you to the days of early Ufology. Oh, yes, I almost forgot. There are 3 bonus recordings for you to enjoy also.
