Aired on TMV Cafe

Thursday July 4, 2013

Our first show of July includes news stories of thieves with a difference at Bishop's Cleeve in Gloucestershire, England. They didn't steal garden tools stored in a shed, instead they took the shed, while over in Knoxville, Tennessee animals at the zoo don't attempt to escape with those that have to find ways to survive try to get in as in the case of a large grizzly bear that didn't even pay the entrance fee. Our second news story from England shows what jealousy can do as Andrew Walsh felt his girlfriend loved her hamster more than she did him. And our final news item takes us to India and a news reporter, Narayan Pargaien who decided to use one of the flood victims as a prop. We always end with the Weird News Weekly Stupid Celebrity of the Week Award which this week goes to Alec Baldwin.

Alan Cox

Aired on TMV Cafe

Thursday August 15, 2013.

Joining us this week to find out what weird happenings have been going on around the world is psychic medium, healer, consultant and show host, Alan Cox. For more information on Alan you can visit his Calming Thoughts website.

We begin with an update from Somerset where a fuzzy picture was taken, allegedly showing a large black cat similar to a panther. Placing signs warning visitors of a large cat roaming the grounds, the Lord of Maunsel House was photographed beside one of the signs holding a gun, which in turn brought police swooping down to check on Sir Benjamin’s arsenal of weapons. A strange story comes from Missouri where after a head-on collision, a young girl trapped in her car asked for prayers, for a priest to step forward. No one knows how he got there or how when rescue workers turned to thank him, he had disappeared so mysteriously. A new tourist attraction could bring much needed funding to the police department with talks of opening to the public Scotland Yard’s famous Black Museum. We end the news stories in Russia where a man will be judged to either be resourceful or have committed fraud in amending the contract for a credit card which the bank accepted.

And we end with the Stupid Celebrity of the Week Award with the recipient being Lindsay Lohan.
