Earth Mum's Gypsy
Here's a little aside that illustrates how far off track Berthold's bozos have taken WBAI. Helena Faith Miel, who calls herself "Earth Mum" does odds and ends at the station, including the "Community Bulletin Board" and "Morning Eclectic", a weekly show that appears to be organic, but whose intended nature is a bit blurry. Last week, Micky Vermooch, a British Gypsy psychic, exorcist, master of paranormal palaver, etc., was her phone guest via a transatlantic call. Earth Mum announced that she would be taking calls if anyone wished to speak to him—Maxine did, but is this the sort of thing we should be hearing on WBAI?
I'm sure Earth Mom (hate the nickname) is a nice, well-meaning lady, but this sort of thing (remember "Mr. Z"?) is as bogus as anything Tony Bates will throw at you.
