As a follow-up to my article on ufologists getting knocks on their front-doors from government agents, I thought I would share with you a few cases that revolve around sinister and bizarre phone-calls and UFOs. I’ll begin with one of my own experiences that went down in 2003 – and when I was doing research into the death of Marilyn Monroe. It was around 2:00 a.m. and the phone rang. None of us like those situations. And all for the same reason: that, maybe, the voice on the other end will be calling with bad news. Terrible news. In a befuddled, half-asleep state I ran into the darkness-filled living-room and, without thinking of reaching for the light, fumbled around to grab the phone. As I picked it up, I heard what sounded like screeching static, such was the ear-blasting level of the volume. In a few seconds, though, I was able to figure it out. It was a recording of Marilyn’s never-to-be-forgotten rendition of “Happy Birthday” for JFK at the third Madison Square Garden in New York on May 19, 1962, even though JFK’s actual birthdate of May 29. And the recording was playing over and over on a loop. No call-number was available. A warning? Of what? Having someone play “Happy Birthday” down the line to me – in the dead of night – was certainly one of the nuttiest things that has ever happened to me, but it was hardly something guaranteed to keep me wide awake for the rest of the night. That whole story can be found in my latest book, Diary of Secrets.
