John B. Wells Leaves Coast to Coast AM

John’s website, Caravan to Midnight, is [was] down temporarily. With his own show coming up he won’t have to stay within Premier Radio’s parameters. I’m looking forward to listening to you again, John!! I will not be posting anymore of John’s newsletters after this. I am only posting this one because his website is down and not everyone signed up for his newsletters before the website began crashing. This is a FYI for those looking for information as to why John left Coast to Coast.

Make Ready For What’s To Come


01 February 2014

Greetings, Fellow Traveler,

This is our first News Letter and it’s the first time I’ve written one. Ever.

In upcoming editions, there will be content different from that contained in this one.

And while portions of the world burn, the seas become more poisoned by the day, the UFO’s are buzzing around as if their presence is generally accepted as normal, and the Government continues to be a nightmare and a circus, I feel compelled to launch this piece of data first.

The news I received by telephone on Tuesday 28 January 2014 changed everything in this camp, even as it came as no real surprise. The timing as it turns out, was perfect. Although it was a bit like hearing the General Quarters alarm sound in the middle of otherwise sound sleep!

After months of resistance to certain features, topics and guests coming on the Bridge, I began to sense that Cassius was about to make his play. And he did. By proxy.

The voice of the High Priestess at Premiere Radio Networks was soft as she gently informed me that Coast To Coast AM was “going in a different direction on Saturday nights”.

I want you to know how deeply you have all touched me, including those who did not care for my particular style nor my aversion to socialism, but listened anyway, because they are part of the play as well. The deep nights with you, wherever you may have been; by a fire, on the road, at some fabulous plant creating masterpieces of technology through the night, sharing ideas while playing snippets of what I consider to be great music, dealing with the excellent crew at L.A. Command. It was magic. And a dream come true to have been a member of the C2C family for these two, quickly passing years, after having been a fan for the better part of a couple of decades.

Command may have believed that I was taking too many risks, and hence, was altering the character of the program. But just so you know, the listening audience on Saturday nights was equal to and sometimes greater than the entire five day week, according to information I only recently received.

In fact, I received it just last night. One would think this was a good thing, but not to all concerned.

But it doesn’t matter. We generally claim to want change, but sometimes I think we really don’t. Irrespective, it has come anyway. And the landscape of our new endeavor definitely changed. Again, just so you know, the ‘new endeavor’ was not planned as a departure mechanism from C2C, but as a forum wherein I could do more, absent any addition slots on C2C.


At first we offered a year’s subscription for 50.00, thinking in terms of a calender year, we launching in February and therefore presenting ten months of programs instead of twelve. But, not realizing that as this would be a recurring charge the question would be raised, how exactly this discount is to be applied. Our solution is to mail a refund check to those who became members, or to offer a ‘coupon’ redeemable toward any purchase of items in the Caravan stores. We will do whatever it takes to make our members know that we intend to make everything transparent to them.

And, in case you’re wondering, we will make the program available for download in the near future, and we are exploring the creation of a smart-phone ‘app’, and of course, CTM members will have access to the complete archive of programs as they are created.

When the came the news of my departure from C2C, the inboxes became flooded with requests for an alternate payment schedule, as so many listeners are on disability, Social Security or have lost their jobs and are now on Unemployment.

I pondered this for awhile, wondering if to offer quarterly or semi-annual schedules would offend those who took the plunge and paid it all before we even launched the program. I came to the conclusion that it would not be offensive as long as we demonstrated our complete willingness to satisfy those first members. So, as this year goes by, we will offer specials and extras, which we believe the First Wave will enjoy, and then pass these specials and extras on to those who joined after the launch date in the months ahead. Those who joined in December 2013 will receive either a 10.00 USD refund check or a 15.00 USD coupon to the stores. Those who joined in January 2014 get either 5.00 USD refund check or a 10.00 USD coupon. This way, no one is left out and all are treated fairly. We welcome your comments and any new ideas. Because we are all in this together. And those not riding toward the front of the Caravan Line must be treated as well as those closer to the point.

All of the CTM brand merchandise is not yet loaded onto the site. Obviously, a coupon of a small denomination isn’t that exciting when applied to a Mazur Geiger Counter or a (fantastic) Berkey water purifier. But it does make acquisition of goodies like our long and short sleeved T-shirts, ball caps, keychains, mouse pads and mugs (for your ‘proper cup of tea’) somewhat enticing.

We feel certain that the products in the CTM stores: the excellent Berkey systems which remove fluoride to near undetectable levels from your water, the fabrics that shield you from EMF and the meters that detect it, the Stetzer filters that clean up your dirty electric circuits, and the Mazur Geiger Counters which detect the onslaught of ionizing radiation coming our way from the disaster zone in Japan, will immediately help to improve your quality of life, as they have ours. We use all of these things in our homes and offices.

All of that stated, I/we did not expect the response we received. The website has been crashed repeatedly and there are glitches in the migration to a fully dedicated, very large server.

So if you are experiencing difficulty, we apologize for the inconvenience and please know we are expending all energy and attention to correcting these issues.

Now, there is something else which I want to address: the need for a subscription service.

Back in the 1980’s, I was the announcer/story narrator for a television program titled “Guilty Or Innocent”, hosted by the famous trial lawyer Melvin Belli. The production staff thought it would be fun to have me, a former Rock and Roll radio DJ, to play the role of, yes… a rock and roll DJ.

In the vignette, this DJ had broadcast instructions to chase down the Station Van and secure some highly prized tickets to a high line concert event. An overly zealous listener, with marginal driving skills apparently, crashed their car while pursuing the Station van and caused a fatality. So, our story was about the culpability and legal liability of the DJ and Station.

I have applied this fictitious story to CTM. The information that will be provided is not suitable for broadcasting over the free airwaves for exactly the same reason this vignette was created. If someone takes the information and twists off in a wrong direction, I do not want myself or any member of my crew to be held responsible for it. It was difficult enough to get the persons and stories onto C2C. We must never forget what happened to captain Phillip Marshall and Michael Hastings, the intrepid journalist. Dr. Jim Garrow, who came onto the Saturday night edition of C2C, survived an attempt on his life a few days after our interview on air. When you join CTM, you are a member of a private organization. And it is my hope that you will not just spend your money with us for a subscription, but take the information CTM provides and use it to challenge and ultimately change our system of governance and our social structure for the betterment of all of our fellow citizens.

There are six in the crew plus myself. I call them the Lost Angels. They have worked doggedly, tirelessly and brilliantly, without compensation, to get this program online. It is my sincere belief that all of this, from my being allowed to join C2C and having been directed to it, to this labour of love called Caravan To Midnight, was orchestrated by The Great One, upon Whom I place an unshakable trust, and to Whose voice I try to keep my ears keenly tuned.

It is my hope that you will enjoy and find value in CTM. Let me know if you do or do not.

May you be Blessed as we all-

Make Ready For What’s To Come.

With Highest Regards,

John B. Wells

    I hope I never come across an animal mutilation because I know it will stay with me. It must be very haunting to witness. I think Linda is one of the best at what she does and I enjoy listening to her as well.

    I was so moved by, and in tears from, approximately the last 20 minutes of Linda’s narrative when she spoke of things being so out of whack on this planet and that it had to come under some kind of corrective force from the source field. My words, not hers. She was brilliant in her words. Her energy was brilliant.

  2. Salty says:

    Hi Polly,
    Excellent interview! I always enjoy listening to ‘Dame Linda’. The descriptions of cattle mutilations are hard to take.

  3. pollyann says:

    Linda Moulton Howe has me crying. She gave a very moving speech on John’s show on April 16, 2014; Episode #43. Wow!

  4. pollyann says:

    So far, I liked listening to John on Coast better than on his own show. That may change but so far, that is my preference.

  5. KL says:

    John B Wells was a right wing hack that pretended to be a middle of the road political belief.

    I’m personally excited he is gone as I listen to C2C for UFO, paranormal, etc…which was the premise of the original program under Art Bell

    With Jon B Wells, it was becoming the Fox News lite, everything was the fault of the supposedly left wing media.

    I think most people listen to C2C to get away from the political noise that constantly goes on all day long.

    • pollyann says:

      Now that you have mentioned it, KL, I think C2C tries to stay ‘middle of the road’ and not become too radical in any direction partly for the reason you stated (too much daily political noise). I like to listen to various people and like John B. as well as Coast. There’ve been plenty of times I’ve not been interested in a particular Coast show and the same goes for C2M so far.

      Your comment reminds me of an old Art Bell show I listened to on a Saturday night several weeks ago (Somewhere in Time) and Art Bell mostly talked about his strongly conservative political beliefs and was ‘ranking on’ the left big time. I’d never heard him sound so political. There was an election going on and Art made it very clear he was a part of the right against the left paradigm which really surprised me because I had not heard that show before.

  6. pollyann says:

    John said during his narrative at the beginning of his show on the 25th that he never would have willingly left Coast.

    That statement validated my impression there is a lot of value in being a host on Coast no matter what complaints people make about the program.

  7. pollyann says:

    John had established quite the esoteric, energetic home base at Coast and the abrupt loss of that must have been very painful. I think it will take some time for him to find his rhythm again. Be well, John.

    I wondered if this was a natal, second Saturn return episode for John because that is the kind of thing that can happen. The rug is ripped right out from under a person.

  8. pollyann says:

    CTM was finally able to update most of their audio and video archives of past programs and I was listening to them last night. So far, I have not been interested in any of John’s guests but last night I listened to his pre-guest narratives at the beginning of the newly archived programs. Even John had to admit there might be something to Mercury Retrogrades and full moons because he never put any stock in them before. The narrative in Episode #7 from 2-13-14 is the John I know from radio. He is finding his way in this new venue after all of the upheaval and adversity. I like how he is in silhouette in the video. Lol!! I think it’s an excellent and creative visual effect.

    I am going to make a statement. A few or more years ago I “encouraged” Coast to become The New Generation of Mainstream. Yes. I kid you not. All of us are working at different levels of changing ourselves and this reality. Infiltrating “their” institutions is being done at all levels, some covert and very dangerous, some overt and much less dangerous. In my perspective, Coast is infiltrating the world of mainstream radio media (in a way Art Bell never could when he hosted his show and then Coast; he was a pioneer) via Clear Channel and Premier Networks. Yes, there is censorship of radio hosts and guests and I suspect word from the Obama administration came through the channels to warn Coast about certain things. That is OK for now. John mentioned he did not know what kinds of pressure Coast is under and I am glad he did. He only knows the pressure that was exerted on him.

    Whereas so many want to trash George Noory and Coast because the show is not revolutionary, controversial, conspiracy-oriented, “truth-seeking” enough, or whatever, I see the long term, larger picture success. The success is in what used to be fringe, taboo, and ridiculed is now accepted by more and more people. It’s becoming the New Mainstream. The Old Mainstream is continuously loosing devotees. Coast is one part of that network of success.

  9. pollyann says:

    I’ve known since the 70’s that voice enhancement is used on the radio, etc. I was aware of how George’s voice sounds different through other mediums. I’ve heard it. The same with anyone’s, including John’s. My post pointed out something on a different level.

  10. pollyann says:

    I don’t know, John. You and your crew seem to be having a whole lot of trouble setting out on a course but Mercury Retrograde doesn’t help matters. You really sounded good on AM radio. It’s a whole different sound quality and frequency than the Internet. The timbre of your voice over the radio airwaves resonated with the human first chakra and had a profound healing and grounding effect. This chakra has been greatly traumatized in many. It’s the chakra related to survival. I don’t know if you understand that or not but it’s true. The effect is lost on an Internet transmission.

    • Salty says:

      Hi Polly,

      I can’t speak to John specifically but… Something’s up!!

      Re my comment on my January 2014 page. I was just going to write an update comment to put in February then I seen your comment here.
      I’m sensing a difference too.

      Regarding Coast broadcasts, and other radio shows. This may, or may not, have anything to do with what you are talking about. It’s just an fyi.

      I first discovered this a few years ago when George Noory was on AJ’s show for the first time.

      After A j did his intro for George, George started talking and A J was taken aback. At first he wasn’t sure at first if it was George or not then said “Your voice!! It’s so different!!
      I was listening to the live show and I was surprised by the sound of his voice too!

      Radio shows can change the sound of the hosts voice, so when G N came on A J’s show, A J and everyone else heard how G N really sounds, his natural voice, without his voice manipulated as it is on Coast. This can also be done for anyone using a microphone.

  11. pollyann says:

    At the moment, Caravan to Midnight is in Maintenance Mode, which will be standard practice, because they have detected a security breach.

  12. pollyann says:

    I am not implying anything by writing this except to make note of it. I remember the night on Coast John talked about his UFO experience way out on one of the long stretches of highway Texas is known for. I’m going to see if I can find this talk of his soon. I’d like to listen to it again to make sure my memory is correct as to what he said.

    • Salty says:

      Good morning Polly,
      I remember John B talking about his UFO experience, but I don’t remember which show it was in either. It wasn’t all that long ago though, within the last 3 months I think.
      Here is a link to John B’s Coast shows. I hope it helps.

      • pollyann says:

        More than likely John mentioned this experience more than once while he was hosting Coast. The time I am referring to, if memory serves, was last summer, but I am not 100% positive. It was quite some time ago and I remember listening very intently. He may have mentioned missing time and that is what interests me.

        There are a few people I observe who have talked about abduction experiences with grays involved. They become popular, public leaders on the Internet in whatever field they are in. Whitley Strieber is one of the most-well known and another is Louis Turi, who exalts his many abduction experiences since childhood.

        • Salty says:

          Hi Polly,
          My memory isn’t great about that show, or those shows (?) either.
          I’m not sure but it may have been a lady guest.
          The one I remember what I am sure of is that It struck me like a bolt of lightning, because it was so out of place that he started talking about his UFO experience. I am certain about that.
          I think that he also said something about it being triangle shaped, but I’m not sure about that.

          Re your last paragraph.
          Yep, that’s interesting isn’t it?
          Turi exalts himself in every possible way. To carry on the way he dose, he must feel very small inside and tries to make himself look big. It really bugs me that he refers to himself as Dr Turi, instead of just saying I. He has some kind of problem that’s for sure.

  13. pollyann says:

    I watched the first video message in the archives for members which is dated Feb. 3, 2014. I waited to watch it. I will surmise by saying John has attracted some high level opposition to his show as well as attracted some high level support. This program is going to be a serious experiment at times from my point of view. It’s going to be hard for me to watch or listen live each day but I can watch the archived shows.

  14. Salty says:

    Hi Polly,
    I’m going to try to listen to the interview first but I’m going to Post this article and the interview . People can make up their own mind.

    Re >>> “From my perspective, John should be proud he made such an impression at Coast while he was there.”
    It’s because of being a host on Coast that John became so well known. Without that he wouldn’t have no wheres near the number of people interested in listening to his CTM shows. I think he might have said something along those lines. ?

    • pollyann says:

      John has a lot of integrity, which is one of the reasons I like him. I only read the article his staff posted and some of the replies people posted under the article. I did not listen to the interview but I can pretty much guarantee John would say something like that.

      • Salty says:

        I put a link to this Post here of yours in my new Post. I didn’t think you would mind. I hope that’s okay with you. ?

        • pollyann says:

          My feeling is this has been another step (letting John go) to take Coast off of the air altogether and scores of the so-called truthers are playing right into the plan. I’m not a fan of Dave Hodges. He’s fanning the flames very nicely. I’m just going to wait for now and trust my intuition and impressions. I still haven’t listened to the actual interview.

          • Salty says:

            Hi Polly,
            I keep forgetting that you have a reply button here now!

            Anyway, I haven’t finished listening to the interview yet but John hasn’t said anything about leaving Coast yet.
            I’m just starting to listen to hour 2. So far it’s been about other interesting things.

            I don’t recall ever listening to Dave Hodges before, so I know zero about him.
            I haven’t read the comments under the articles yet. Nor comments or articles anywhere else.
            At this point I don’t think Coast will go off the air, not for a very, Very long time. Anyway we’ll see how things play out.

            • Salty says:

              Hi Polly,
              I’ve listened to the entire 2 hours and they don’t talk about John leaving Coast.
              It’s an interesting interview. John gives his take on many different things.

  15. pollyann says:

    If a group of wealthy, honest, non-corruptible, alternative media people can buy out Clear Channel then things would be different with mainstream radio. Ha ha! I made that statement because I was reading an article posted at CTM from the Staff about John’s departure from Coast and some of the readers’ replies. I lost interest very quickly in the attitude and energy. I hope that endeavor (CTM) does not become what it abhors and right now they are abhorring Premier Radio, Coast and George.

    From my perspective, John should be proud he made such an impression at Coast while he was there. That says a lot. I will miss him on Saturday nights but that’s life on Planet Earth. More people are apt to tune in to Coast on Saturday nights if they like the host because many of these people don’t have to work on Sundays.

    Take the high road, folks!!

  16. pollyann says:

    As of this writing, John’s website is online again. I’m sure I’m late noting it. The huge response crashed the server. They are up and running!

  17. Salty says:

    I’m glad you Posted this Polly. I figured you would.

    • pollyann says:

      It feels like the right thing to do and I trust that feeling. 🙂 I noticed some search terms were being used to find out why John left Coast and my blog came up in the searches.

      • Salty says:

        Polly, I think it was 🙂
        I was waiting for you to Post it, and if you hadn’t Posted it by tonight I was going to suggest that to you.
        This newsletter is John’s 1st and it is definitely a keeper!!
