Some Roswell Nostalgia!

Roswell New Mexico, July, 1947


Above is the front page of Roswell Daily Record, July 8th, 1947, announcing the capture of a flying saucer?

The Roswell UFO incident was the purported recovery of at least one unidentified flying object (UFO) and its alien occupants, near Roswell, New Mexico in 1947. Many UFO researchers believe an alien craft crashed at Roswell and that the United States military sought to cover-up the craft's recovery. The military maintains that what was recovered was a top-secret research balloon that had crashed. The incident has become the subject of intense speculation and research over several decades, and has evolved into a widely-recognized and referenced pop culture phenomenon. Today, "Roswell" is synonymous with "UFO” and likely ranks as the most famous alleged UFO incident. There are widely divergent viewpoints on what actually happened, and passionate debate about what evidence can be believed.

In early July 1947, the Roswell Army Air Field (RAAF) issued a press release stating that personnel from the field's 509th Bomb Group had recovered a crashed "flying disc" from a ranch near Roswell, sparking intense media interest. Later the same day, the Commanding General of the Eighth Air Force stated that in fact, a weather balloon had been recovered by RAAF personnel, rather than a "flying disc." A subsequent press conference was called, featuring debris said to be the crashed object that seemed to confirm the weather balloon description. The case was quickly forgotten and almost completely ignored, even by UFO researchers, for some 30 years. Then, in 1978, Stanton T. Friedman interviewed Maj. Jesse Marcel, who was involved with the original recovery of the debris in 1947. Marcel expressed his belief that the military had covered up the recovery of an alien spacecraft. His story circulated through UFO circles, including in some UFO documentaries of the time. In February 1980, The National Enquirer ran its own interview with Marcel, garnering national and worldwide attention for the Roswell incident.

Additional witnesses and reports emerged over the following years. They added significant new details, including claims of a large military operation dedicated to recovering alien craft and aliens themselves, as many as 11 crash sites, and alleged witness intimidation. In 1989, former mortician Glenn Dennis put forth a detailed personal account, wherein he claimed that alien autopsies were carried out at the Roswell base.

In response to these reports, and after congressional inquiries, the General Accounting Office launched an inquiry and directed the Office of the Secretary of the Air Force to conduct an internal investigation. The result was two reports. The first one, released in 1995, concluded that the material reported recovered in 1947 was likely debris from a secret government program called Project Mogul. The second report, released in 1997, addressed the reports of aliens and concluded these reports were likely transformed memories of the recovery of anthropomorphic dummies in programs like Project High Dive, conducted in the 1950s. The psychological effects of time compression and confusion about when events occurred explained the discrepancy with the years in question. These reports were dismissed by UFO proponents as being either disinformation or simply implausible, though significant numbers of UFO researchers discount the probability that any alien craft was in fact involved.

Anyway I was able to acquire two short historical audio clips taken from actual radio broadcast at the time of the Roswell incident in New Mexico. These audio clips are not particularly informative but never the less they are genuine and therefore hold some nostalgic value that supports the incident having occurred i.e. a disc shaped object crashes in Roswell New Mexico.
