John Keel’s Birthday

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 8:36 am


Today is John Keel’s birthday.  He was five years old when this photo was taken; if he were alive today, he’d be 81.  We miss him.

To mark the occasion, Anthony Matt and I (Doug Skinner) will chat about his life and work on “In Other News,” hosted by Geoff Brady on WBAI, on Monday, March 28, at 10 pm.  WBAI is at 99.5 FM in NYC, or at

My last birthday present to John was a deck of World War 2 airplane spotter cards.  “I can still identify all these planes,” he said.

ADDENDUM:  Our appearance on “In Other News” is archived here.


  1. Just read mothman prophecies, really interesting and made me think a lot.. I personally have not experienced anything strange but I’ll sure keep my eyes open now. Found this blog from a google search of mothman, pretty near thing you have here. Keep it up and email me if anything cool happens?
