I love when Knapp does Mob shows. This one was good, Natale is a dubious character to those in the Mob scene. I don't think I've ever heard the head of a Mob family do a radio call-in interview, lots of soldiers and wiseguys peddling books but not a don. That's where people take issue with the guy, they don't regard him as a real don. He seems to have made/created his reputation while serving 16 years in prison where younger mobsters bought his war stories, name dropping and tough guy persona. So he actually did become head of the Philly mob in the late 90's when he got out of jail.

Cosa Nostra is pretty marginalized in the US today, almost non-existent in some formerly strongholds like Philly. Still very big in Canada - Toronto especially.

Even Merlino’s crew bought into Natale’s tough-guy persona.

"Yeah, sure, people thought Ralph was tough in prison," says a man who is friends with both Natale and Joey Merlino. "But the only thing tough about him is his mouth. Trouble is, he’s a great liar. Everybody believed Natale. In prison he had the look and the stories, so of course people feared him. He is a legend in his own mind. He was in prison with Joey Merlino and a lot of the young guys, and they heard his bullshit stories and saw how people feared Ralph in prison, so they bought the whole thing. Ralph talked his way into becoming the mob boss. And that’s all it was, too, just talk."

Inherent problem with researching and writing about the Mob, outside of evidence that comes out in trials, and even much of that, is information from the most unreliable untrustworthy people walking the earth.

lol, the infamous mist tunnel.

That's what Bain Capital specializes in, destroying companies for fun and their own profit - vulture capitalism. Matt Tabibi wrote some excellent articles on them during the 2012 Presidential election because Bain Capital was Mitt Romney's company.


I'd pay big money to watch Jorch croon 'Lady in Red' on stage - finding the woman in the audience with her hair falling out, take her hand in his and sing to her like there was nobody else in the room and when the song ends he hands her a bottle of Carnivora.

I can't go to sleep without hearing Peter Davenport call in with his UFO report. Tonight George I have a doozie of a report.

this is the dooziest 'George, a young girl, seems to be very bright girl, sent in a report. She was coming home from volleyball practice at Kent State University in Ohio. She was driving towards Akron when she saw a large orb of glowing light behind her. She says it was following her. She was very scared. She continued on her way and this light form appeared again on the horizon. Very strange George. It's been quite a week with more reports than usual.'

Uh huh, what college student these days doesn't have a smartphone, and if they saw a UFO wouldn't film it with their phone and put it up on  Facebook.

He claims it is a PhD in Political Science from Harvard.

wasn't Hoagland claiming he had a Nobel prize or some very prestigious award from Sweden?

While Hoagland makes frequent reference to his receipt of the "International Angstrom Medal for Excellence in Science" in August 1993, the organization that awarded the medal, The Angstrom Foundation Aktiebolag, founded by Lars-Jonas Ångström, was not authorized by Uppsala University or the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences to make use of the academy's Anders Jonas Ångström memorial medal. The academy has long authorized only Uppsala University to use their medal for the Ångström's Prize (Ångströms premium), awarded yearly by Uppsala professors to physics students. Mr. Ångström stated in May 2000 that although his award to Hoagland was a mistake, he acted with good faith and with good intentions


Dr. Jerome Corsi  ::)

I assume all Jorch's expert guests have dubious credentials. Not going to google but I'd bet Dr. Corsi's PhD is from some diploma mill.


I'm gonna get into this online dating industry, it sounds like it is lucrative.  I need to decide between,, or If you're single which entity would u be most interested in dating - a hubrid, an extra-terrestrial or a ghost?

"You see, we can predict stuff, but due to quantum fluctuations, just not in a predictable way ..."

more likely a distortion in the torsion field. it's in the physics, it always is.


I'd love to see a special week of Jeopardy with overnight radio talk show hosts as contestants. Jorch versus John Batchelor.

Alex Trebek: After the arrest & trial of this "sun-loving" Italian, Descartes suppressed his own work on similar ideas.

Jorch: I've got this ... Dean Martin! NO! GEORGE HAMILTON!

Alex Trebek: Sorry George, not the correct answer ... neither are correct ...... again. And I will remind you once more please put your answers in the form of a question. It's not that hard, this show is 50 years old everybody but you seems to get it.

John Batchelor: Who was Gailileo?

Alex Trebek: Correct. Let's recap our scores before we break for commercial. John has $2300 and George Noory is at -$3900.


Thanks to the Coast caller who gave me a good bellylaugh.  Jorch manages to get an intelligent guest, I presume he's a physicist/astronomer or science journalist, first he's got to run the gauntlet of Jorch's usual 'what was before the Big Bang? what is it expanding into? what shape is it?' questions then Jorch unleashes the stupidity of his listeners on the guest.  'What about rainbows? What makes a rainbow?' LOL WTF


"Is it a living being, possibly."

Same question has been asked about Jorch and that 'alien' bears a striking admittedly blurry resemblance to him.

Terrible fake character calls in terrible radio host.  Can't get much worse.


I like the middle aged lady whose hair was falling out all over the furniture, her legs were swollen, and OMG she was going into a coma when Mom and Dad of course rather than take her to an ER got their hands on some Carnivora and shortly thereafter her symptoms went away.


This is a great article about Christianity and how the scriptures have been edited heavily since the beginning and how misunderstood it is today by fundamentalists who twist it to fit their own purposes.

Well no one should take what the Romans created as an actual belief system no.

Having an open mind is one thing, recognizing the pitfalls of organized religion is usually part of that experience not necessarily contradictory.

Romans didn't invent Christianity - they persecuted Christians horribly. It wasn't until the 4th century that Constantine made it the religion of the Roman Empire and then shaped it into what it became.


I assume since you people are Coast listeners you've heard Phil Hendrie's Coast parodies - they're new to me, hilarious stuff.


ffs how many shows can they do about near death experience?

other than Knapp and Syrett on the weekend i've run out of patience with Jorch and 90% of his guests,  rather listen to old time radio mysteries.


if this guest were in my family, he'd have 3 options -  1) psychiatric help or 2) disowned or 3) punched in the face every time he opens his mouth about any of this nonsense

Listening to the replay on a Seattle station - guest is interesting enough but the voice thing with Church is distracting and it's constant.

Why don't they give Knapp the job as permanent weekend/fill-in host?

Like every show before Jimmy recognized a caller for his 'great pipes',  because of course Jimmy spends most of his life listening to his own 'great pipes'.  'Bro you have some great pipes. How bout we get together and enjoy each other's pipes?' 

Then he just went total 70s deejay animal introducing David Clayton Thomas and Blood Sweat and Tears.  He's an SNL character.

Howard Stern used to riff on clowns like this he worked with coming up the ladder in rock radio in the 70s/80s, guys who were all voice no talent.

I'm starting to think that Jorch stalker on here is right - the more I hear these snakeoil commercials for Carnivora over and over preying on an audience that has a large segment of older folks with degenerative illnesses it really begs the attention of the FTC to investigate the people behind it and Jorch.

Was that the third or fourth religious  caller ?

I LOVE this caller. Hey your theory is crazy, now here's my crazy theory

A rule of thumb I use when listening to C2C is that the more references to popular science fiction books/TV/films the guest makes the more credible the guest and his 'research'  is.

Ahhhh their wings and claws and super weapons are powerless against us if we expand our consciousness. Makes sense.

Hitler had nuclear weapons but according to Len Hitler thought he was a general and didn't listen to good advice so as Berlin was being bombed into rubble when his chief advisors told him 'Fuhrer we must use the nuclear weapons provided by the Reptilians now to save Germany from utter defeat!' Hitler was having none of it. I think this is the first time I've heard Hitler may have been a humanitarian. He was certainly anti-nuke.
