"Fringe Radio Show" 
KTKK AM 630 Utah 

with Pat and Carol Schouten

September 22, 2012 

6-8 p.m. Mountain Time 


Join Frank Feschino, Jr. and Stanton T. Friedman as they are interviewed by hosts Pat and Carol Schouten on K-Talk radio, the third oldest talk radio station in the United States. Frank will be talking about his 20-year "Flatwoods Monster" investigation and his recently released 2012 book:

The Braxton County Monster-REVISED EDITION-The Cover-up of the Flatwods Monster Revealed.

Stanton Friedman adds commentary and insight as, together, they ring this thing out!

What everyone needs to remember while they listen is that this event and sister events occured at the end of the biggest UFO flap in United States UFO history and on the heels of freshly minted orders to the military to shoot those UFOs down... significant to note? The Flatwoods people didn't know about the Snitowski's who, in turn, didn't know about "Bashful Billy affair."  These events were experiences in and of themselves. The principals have no knowledge of one another...
I'm gonna try to call in!

"BASHFUL BILLY" Alien of Wheeling, WV

The Braxton County Monster

"BASHFUL BILLY" Alien of Wheeling, WV
60th Anniversary Incident

In the aftermath of the terrifying "Flatwoods Monster" and "Frametown Monster" incidents occurring in Braxton County on September 12th and 13th in 1952, yet another alien "Monster" was said to have been sighted in West Virginia on Monday, September 15, 1952.

This incident occurred near Wheeling in the Vineyard Hills Housing Development about five miles from the famous Oglebay Park Resort. Only three days earlier, during the September 12, 1952 UFO flap at Flatwoods, a damaged UFO had gone down in the Oglebay Park area. Not as well-known as the two previous Braxton County close encounters recently recounted, this mysterious "Monster" incident also reflects the incidence of being quickly covered-up by officials.

More at this link!

On September 16, 1952, an article on the front page of the Wheeling Intelligencer reported, "'Monster' From Outer Space Arrives Here Via Saucer." The opening stated, "'Bashful Billy,'" the monster from outer space and southern West Virginia, arrived in Wheeling by flying saucer yesterday and promptly set tongues wagging and telephones burning."  Notice the reflex ridicule in the article above. 

The article also stated, "One call to the Intelligencer offices asked if it was true that the horribly burned body of a woman was found at Vineyard Hills and that a policeman was burned mysteriously about the arm... Callers also reported that an unpleasant odor was produced by the monster."  Similar bells seem decidedly rung between this and the previous two affairs at Flatwoods and Frametown.

The Fairmont Times article of September 16, 1952, "Green-Eyed Monster Again Reported on Loose in state," reported that "Bashful Billy" was a "10-foot tall monster from another world" and was said to be "gas-breathing."

Was the "body of a horribly burned woman" really found by the Wheeling locals on the pandemonium that was Monday in Vineyard Hills?  Or, was this the cover story to hide the truth of a horribly burned alien body found there after being dropped off from a damaged UFO three days earlier during the September 12 flap?  Curious and more curious, still.

The Wheeling Intelligencer continued to follow this "Monster" story. On September 17, 1952, it reported yet two more sightings of another monster called a "roving monster." These sightings occurred on Tuesday September 16, 1952 in nearby Ohio. One caller contacted the Wheeling newspaper and reported that, "his grandchildren were 'almost scared to death' by something they had seen." Another Ohio caller reported, "It was 10-15 feet tall and had a green body and red head."  More familiar bells!

Was this "roving monster" actually another alien looking for the ostensibly stranded alien found dead already by the Wheeling locals the day before?  What was happening "really," in the center of West Virginia?

Read the entire story, all the accompanying articles regarding these amazing incidents, and other documented incidents provoking hapless locals into a terrified frenzy... in Frank Feschino's new book, "The Braxton County Monster-REVISED EDITION-The Cover-up of the Flatwoods Monster Revealed."  This is real.

The Braxton County Monster Returns?


The 60th Anniversary of the
Snitowsky and Frametown Monster Incident
(A sister event to the Flatwoods affair)

Twenty-four hours after the "Braxton County Monster" incident occurred in Flatwoods, yet another terrifying alien close encounter occurred in Braxton County, about 17-miles away in the Frametown area.

On September 13, 1952, George Snitowsky, his wife Edith and 18-month son were driving through the mountainous roads from Frametown, on their way back home to New York.  Abruptly, their car inexplicably stalled and died by the deserted and car-less roadside.

George attempted to start the car but to no avail.  Suddenly, the air around him became engulfed with a noxious foggy mist smelling like a mixture of ether and burnt sulfur.

Moments later, just after he'd gotten back into his car, a dazzling beam of deep purple light flashed across the hood!  It emanated from the nearby woods. The scene quickly became dire as the stench penetrated the interior of the car and the baby started crying uncontrollably.

As everyone was gagging and heaving, George got out intent on investigating the brilliant light in the woods. As he got closer to it he was to become dumbfounded when he clearly saw a glowing UFO hovering behind some nearby trees! Electrical charges filled the air along with the sickening stench surrounding him, he quickly turned and headed back to the relative safety of the car.

As George neared his car, he staggered, briefly, against a tree attempting to regain his balance and catch his breath.  Suddenly, a blood-curding scream filled the air as Edith tried to warn George of the impending danger behind him. Clutching the baby, the hysterical wife pointed to a huge 9-foot tall alien that was hovering in place about 30-feet away from him.

George's knees buckled when he turned and saw a huge reptilian-looking being!  He was later able to describe the alien as having a bloated body with long spindly anthropoid arms forking into only two thick, if equally spindly, fingers. Suddenly, without any warning, the being moved towards him. George said the figure seemed to glide acoss the surface of the road.  He further described the lower torso as being a solid mass, a conveyance. Furthermore, it was the source of the sickening sulfur permeating the air.

The huge alien quickly hovered towards Snitowsky, followed him back to the car—even stalked the hysterical couple circling their automobile for a time!  Other weirdness ensued...

This hair-raising incident, among many others, can be read in its entirety—with accompanying illustrations—in Frank C. Feschino's new book:

Today Is 60 Year Anniversary Of The Famed "Flatwoods Monster" Event

60TH ANNIVERARY September 12, 1952 - September 12, 2012

Around dusk on September 12, 1952, the small country town of Flatwoods, West Virginia slipped irretrievably into a real-world Twilight Zone.  By report: A flaming UFO flew directly overhead at treetop level, made a hard 90 degree left turn, and then settled behind the trees on a hilltop just southeast of the location of a small group of witnesses standing, justifiably, slack-jawed! Very shortly thereafter, several local residents went in search of the large downed "object," indeed landing nearby on the now famous Bailey Fisher Farm.

During their intrepid quest to find the downed object, the group was abruptly terrified when they very unexpectedly encountered what might be the 12-foot-tall occupant of said damaged craft, after it had perhaps sought refuge along the bordering woods of the bare hilltop landing zone, but coming out at them from behind a huge white oak, lit up like a Christmas tree!

This "strange occupant," later called the "Braxton County Monster" or "Flatwoods Monster," was very likely a huge and hovering metallic-like structure acting as what might be called a vehicular probe or conveyance. The witnesses, often and from the beginning, compared it to a mechanical spacesuit... with something seemingly sentient inside; a "being," even... a "being" clad in a protective suit of armor.        

Within days, the story of the "Braxton County Monster" became as far-reaching as named newspapers and radio stations around the United States—mainstream media vociferously telling the story of this "gigantic unknown alien visitor"—will make it far-reaching!  Not restricted to the United States, it was not to be the end of the story!

One week later the two main adult witnesses—plus the Braxton County newspaper reporter involved—appeared on the very popular national TV Magazine show called, "We the People."  Here, the television sketch artist hurriedly talked to the witnesses and so very incorrectly illustrated this giant mechanical occupant—rendering it instead to appear as a pumpkin headed, cloth hooded, and claw-waving "monster"— a monster wearing a sweet-sixteen skirt and hovering a foot or so off the ground!  

To add insult to injury, the Intelligence officials at Project Blue Book stated the witnesses "probably saw an owl perched on a tree limb" and that the "underbrush below" may have "given the impression of a giant figure." "In their excitement, they imagined the rest," it was said! Moreover, the alien occupant's damaged craft, which had flown additionally West over Washington, DC, in flames, landed in Flatwoods!  It was officially claimed to be "the well-known Washington area meteor."  Folks, that "meteor" was in the air over 21 hours, flew at slow speeds and changed direction many times!  I'll let the reader decide what kind of meteor it was!

Yes, a cover-up was quickly put in place as Americans panicked over the already record amount of UFO sightings occurring over the United States that whole year! Furthermore, the Flatwoods incident occurred only six-weeks after the USAF had ominously revealed, to wit: that "the jet pilots are, and have been, under orders to investigate unidentified objects, and to "shoot them down," reader, "if they can't talk them down"!  Cue the crisis music!     

Over the years, the story became fatuously and grossly distorted!  Rumors ran riotous, rampant, and roughshod over the townspeople! Said townspeople consequently became tired of the insulting inconsistencies written about the incident. The eyewitnesses, themselves, were subsequently singled out for special attention—were ridiculed tirelessly and mercilessly—while the "Flatwoods Monster" was written-off and relegated, over the years, to a quaint West Virginia tale of "hillbilly folklore." The American government's massive cover-up of this close encounter incident was indeed a well executed plan lasting many years. ...But even the best of cover-ups have holes in them!  Torn evidentiary seams eventually split open to reveal the truth!

Forty-years after this amazing incident occurred; Frank C. Feschino Jr. discovered the "Braxton County Monster" story and began looking into it. That is when Aviation history was changed. Tirelessly, he has now spent more than twenty-years investigating the Flatwoods incident!   This is the longest investigation ever conducted into the case in record, thus Feschino is THE subject matter expert on this astonishing event!            

At last, sixty-years after the incident, Frank Feschino, Jr. has released his new book, "The Braxton County Monster—REVISED EDITION—the Cover-up of the 'Flatwoods Monster' Revealed."  Now, the entire and non-redacted truth of this incident is told in Feschino's amazing book, which records this entire 20-year investigation!  

Larry Bailey     --     Alfred Lehmberg

Frank Feschino, Jr.  --   Stanton Fiedman

Most humbly, this being the 60th anniversary of this terrifying incident: Frank Feschino Jr., Stanton Friedman, and Alfred Lehmberg—among other significant colleagues—would like to take a moment to remember the Braxton County witnesses who worked unfailingly and unstintingly with Frank.  These have since passed on during the writing of his new "Braxton County Monster" book, and live on only in the video and written record. Without them, the truth of "Braxton County Monster" incident could not be known.

In remembrance of:

  • Colonel Dale Leavitt, WV National Guard commander in 1952, who went to the Flatwoods landing site with a heavy Battalion of Army troops shortly after the incident.

  • Mrs. Kathleen May, primary eyewitness to the "Flatwoods Monster," who came within a few feet of the figure during her close encounter.

  • Lee Stewart, Jr, photojournalist who first interviewed the witnesses and then broke the "Flatwoods Monster" story to the news press.

  • Margaret Clise, former Flatwoods Mayor, who saw the damaged craft fly over Flatwoods at low-level, just before it landed on the farm!

  • Jack Davs, local businessman, who saw the damaged craft pass over Flatwoods and then land on the Fisher Farm a few moments later.

  • Harvey Wolf, former aerospace physicist, who worked with Lockheed and assisted Frank with his research. 

  • A special rememberance to USAF F-94 fighter pilot 2nd Lt. John A. Jones, Jr. and radar observer, John DelCurto. These men both perished in their jet on September 12, 1952 under mysterious circumstances.  

In honor of the 60th Anniversary of the Flatwoods Green Monster, a special thank you goes out to stalwarts John Clise, doting son of Margaret above and the editor of the "Central West Virginian" newspaper, the witness Fred May, the whole of the May family, and all the other families, witnesses and assistants who worked with Frank to tell the real story of the "Braxton County Monster" in his new "REVISED EDITION."  

Near last but not least, Frank and his colleagues wish to thank Mr. Larry Bailey of Brothers Bailey Promotions for his professional support with this project and a special thank you to the Law Firm of Bowles, Rice, McDavid, Graft & Love, LLP, for making the book a reality.       

Finally, Frank C. Feschino, Jr's, 20-year UFO research project is ultimately dedicated to the brave American fighter pilots and other flyers who scrambled their aircraft into the dark skies of the wholly unknown after UFOs to "shoot them down," but never returned home...
