Greetings and Salutations One and All! I do hope that you all have had a wonderful week and will continue to do so! We have an amazing guest for you this week! This man is by far the grandfather of all we know about “Crop Circles”. He has authored many books, he had toured the world with his lovely wife and spoken on this topic all over the world! We had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Andrews and he graciously accepted to speak with us on the show. WOW! What an honor! I have followed this man’s work for many years! I practically grew up with his work! So we are extremely excited to be able to speak with him!

You can find out more about Colin on his official website at www.colinandrews.net

Here’s a bit more information on our amazing guest!

Colin is best known for his research into the crop circle & UFO subjects since 1983. He provides the only continuity between the past crop circle research era and the present, along with his friend and colleague, Busty Taylor.  His long view of both the genuine phenomenon and the human-made phenomenon provides unique insight into the subject. His research results indicate the intelligence behind the phenomenon is interacting with both crop circle researchers and many of the people who make the hoaxes.

He has publicly stated since the late 1980s, that the phenomenon indicates a future period of human chaos. The period indicated, supported by current trends, can be changed with human awareness. He also believes there are serious eco-political implications and that the future direction of the planet is at the center of the phenomenon.

In the final analysis Andrews believes the phenomenon is challenging people to a higher level of consciousness.

Some native elders agree with Colin’s assessment which is supported by the 2012 Mayan Prophecy. His latest book, written with his wife, The Complete Idiots Guide to 2012 covers this connection.

Colin’s 25-year investigation continues with growing urgency for openness and honesty in government and private research, respect for divergent opinions, and co-operation between investigators in all areas.

Colin is an accomplished professional photographer, who has been invited to show his photographs in art galleries across the United States, including the Philadelphia Art Museum and the Cortland Jessup Art Gallery in Provincetown, Cape Cod. One spectacular photograph of Princess Diana and Prince Charles on their honeymoon was presented to the Queen and to this day also hangs in the Mayors Parlour at Romsey, England – the home town of Prince Charles uncle, Lord Louis Mountbatten of Burma.

Colin Andrews is an electrical engineer by profession and was a principle official in British Regional Government during the 1970s and 80s.  He became involved in the crop circle mystery in 1983 when he saw an arrangement of five circles in a wheat field near Winchester, England. Intrigued by the engineering aspects, he began investigating the circles with Pat Delgado, a retired NASA engineer and Busty Taylor a light aircraft pilot.

During his years of research he advised Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher’s cabinet on the mystery, supervised the largest crop circle surveillance project in 1990 named “Operation Blackbird,” and amassed the largest data base in the world on the subject. Operation Blackbird was an effort to film a genuine crop circle forming. It was sponsored by BBC and Nippon television and was authorized to take place on Ministry of Defense land and with British Army assistance.

In 1996 Colin was asked by Laurance Rockefeller to provide information for the Rockefeller Initiative.  The Initiative provided the United States government with the “best available evidence” regarding UFOs with the purpose of opening public dialogue. Colin continued to receive funding in 1999 from Laurance Rockefeller to conduct a two year investigation into crop circle hoaxing. He put together a team who studied the construction patterns of man-made crop circles that had been commissioned by various commercial and media interests. In addition, members of his team infiltrated several circle-making groups uncovering new information regarding the level of anomalous phenomena experienced by the hoaxers while making circles.

Using man-made circles as a base, Andrews studied the formations that appeared in England throughout 1999 and 2000. His research data brought him to the unpleasant conclusion that 80% of all the circles he studied showed “unassailable” signs of being man-made. The remaining 20% showed all the signs of being part of the genuine phenomenon he had encountered 20 years earlier.

The publication of this data was largely rejected at the time. Today, the majority of honest, unbiased researchers have come to believe the truth of Colin’s assessment.

Colin and his wife, Synthia have traveled around the world meeting with indigenous leaders, seeking to understand the larger picture of the crop circle phenomenon.

Greetings and Salutations One and All! I hope you have all had a wonderful week this week! It’s been busy busy busy on my end hence less blog entries then usual! But it’s all good! Change is not always a bad thing! We are growing and loving the ride!

We have got an amazing guest this week! Our first musician! MICHAEL ON FIRE! Spirit brought this man to me late last year, I have followed his work since! He is ecclectic and real and combines old and new ways into the words and the infusions of his musical styles and instruments. Truly unique and spiritual it will absolutely touch your heart.

Here is a little bit about our guest…..

Michael on Fire

From the time he first picked up a guitar, at the age of 11, Michael on Fire, knew that his path and purpose was making music, and he has remained true to that calling, having lived his life as an original artist.

He grew up in Detroit, where, in the 1970s, his early band, Old Buck, was a frontrunner of Country Rock music. They quickly established themselves as a regional favorite and performed steadily on a circuit of clubs, colleges and festivals in Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Canada, with occasional coast-to-coast jaunts as well.

During that same time, Michael was hired on as an arranger, “song doctor” and studio musician for Groovesville Music, working at the historic United Sound Recording Studios with legendary music Producer Don Davis. Davis arranged for Old Buck to record with the renowned Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section, which played on many of the most important rock, soul and country music records ever made.

After a stint touring with Jango Edwards and the Friends Roadshow (for whom he co-wrote the international hits “Bicycle Seat,” and “American Boys”) Michael then formed the popular progressive music group, Prismatic, which released a trio of records, and performed 350 days a year for five consecutive years, including performances at The Montreaux International Jazz Festival, and shows with some of the most brilliant artists working in the field of jazz and progressive music.

In the ‘80s, Michael relocated to Los Angeles, where he attracted many top-notch players into his band, and started performing under the name Michael on Fire – six nights a week, all original music. He quickly developed a fervent following, and the list of luminaries who regularly showed up at his performances reads like a music and entertainment Hall of Fame. His first record under the new moniker, Pre-Dawn Chronicles, was released on the MCR Music label, and was co-produced by Michael, Stephen Stills and Joe Vitale.

The live CD, Commanche Moon, which critics called a “folkish, bluesy, country, tribal, gypsy rock and roll,” followed and was named one of the Top 10 records of the year in an L.A. Times critic’s poll. Following the release of that record, Michael on Fire began a period of intense roadwork.

Performing sometimes in a full-band format, sometimes as a trio, and sometimes as a solo artist, Michael on Fire spent the next dozen years touring unendingly through every nook and cranny of the United States, in every kind of environment – from bars to beautiful theaters, private homes to major outdoor festivals, from the rowdy to the reverent, from playing in prisons to performing for the President of the United States. He released eight CDs, all of which expressed his musical vision and garnered critical acclaim.

Along the way, Michael has also created an extensive body of music for film, stage and television, and for the past 12 years his original instrumental holiday music has been the most played music during the holiday season on The Weather Channel.

On his newest CD, the artist, the dreamer, the lover, the fool, Michael successfully fuses the elements cherished and appreciated by his fervent following of friends and fans – soulful singing, penetrating lyrics, mysticism, storytelling, passionate delivery and outstanding musicianship – presented in a coherent and highly listenable artistic journey that makes apparent the soul – of the artist, the dreamer, the lover, the fool.

In Jan. 2010, The Ventura County Star (Ventura, CA) named his performance from Oct. 2009 as one of the Top Five Concerts of the Year (others named included: Paul McCartney, Brian Wilson, Paul Thorn and Steve Poltz.)

Michael on Fire is so good you’ll be searching for new adjectives to describe it. He’ll make you laugh, cry, see God and tap your feet – all at once.

– Bill Locey, The Los Angeles Times
