In 1997 a man called a radio station Coast to Coast AM with panic in his voice. He said he was a former Area 51 worker on the run with little time left before someone or something catches him.
The call was unscreened, and the show host Art Bell urged the caller to give him information quickly.
The transmission was mysteriously lost for the first time since the show’s existence, which Bell said was not a coincidence.
Area 51 Caller
The caller still had enough time to broadcast the following information and warning to the public:
“What we’re thinking of as aliens, they’re extra-dimensional beings that an earlier precursor of the space program made contact with."
“They have infiltrated a lot of aspects of the military establishment, particularly Area 51.”
“The disasters that are coming, they…the government…knows about them.”
“They want those major population centers wiped out so the few who are left will be more easily controllable."
After The Call…
Someone called the show later saying that this was a prank call. Others say he was forced to say that. Was it a prank? You can judge from the caller’s panicked voice and tears yourself.
Twenty years after the call, since the government did not wipe out the population, some people feel that the call must have been a prank.
However, there is likely a lot more going on behind the scenes of the government and the military than we know. And the Area 51 caller knew only a small part of it. If the horrid plan he revealed was true, perhaps the plan failed; or maybe it was postponed, or even stopped by another alien group.
Still, the caller’s voice sounds as spooky today as it did in 1997, and provides another clue in the search for proof of alien life.
