CTV News

I just watched the CTV newscast I was interviewed for this morning. I’ve been getting a lot of friends contacting me to congratulate me on all the publicity, so thanks everyone.

Here’s a link to the backmasking. I know that’s what you’re here for.

Tonight on TV — Me!

This evening on the news I will be on Global (local to Lethbridge) at 6:00pm and as well on the CTV news. I think that it will air at 5:00 and if it goes to Calgary again at 6:00. If it goes nationally it will be on all evening rotating with all today’s top stories. CRAZY!

The radio interviews in the states are coming in fast too. I have been asked for an interview with an NPR affiliate, and as well a pretty big radio station in Seattle wants to interview me as well. I’ll be doing a morning show interview tomorrow for a station in Chicago and to top things off Fraser and Rosie’s Big Breakfast show (a local rock station in Lethbridge).

Here is a clip of the backmasking article from the Lethbridge Herald. The story also made the cover of the Calgary Herald.

My 15 Minutes of Fame

I woke up pretty early this morning when a radio station from Illinois called me at 6:25am to ask if I’d do an interview on the air this morning. All the attention has been great!

Other than the Illinois radio interview, today I’m going to be on Global, City TV, and CTV Lethbridge. Yesterday I was interviewed live on an ABC News radio affiliate in Seattle, and pre-recorded for The Michael Smerconish Program on 1210AM WPHT in Philadelphia…a 50,000 Watt CBS Affiliate (I’m told 50,000 Watts is huge). I was also interviewed live on the CBC’s Wild Rose Country with Donna McElligott.

The newspapers that interviewed me include the Lethbridge Herald, the Calgary Herald, and the Ottawa Citizen. I understand the Medicine Hat News, The Arizona Republic, and the Globe & Mail might also be running stories related to my site.

Who knows I may even get more calls today.

Many Interviews

I’ve had such a great day giving interviews. I did three radio interviews and three newspaper interviews. I’m going to be doing three television interviews tomorrow morning. This will go down as one of my favorite days ever.

Wall Street Journal Article Published Tomorrow

The article in the Wall Street Journal about backmasking that I was interviewed for is going to be published tomorrow. I’m pretty excited to see it. I had my photo taken by Bob Cooney (he’s in charge of media relations at the University of Lethbridge) and he is pretty excited for me. He wants to do a story for the Legend (the official University paper), and figures that the Lethbridge Herald and the Medicine Hat news will each also want to do stories.

He described getting into the Wall Street Journal as being like the Oscars of getting into the news. He was also pretty excited to be getting a photo credit for the photo he was taking. It will be interesting to monitor the stats on my site tomorrow and see if there is a big influx of visitors.

From the teaser exerpt of the article (it’s already online):

Playing songs backwards — a popular pastime from the days of turntables — went out of fashion when CDs arrived. But now it’s enjoying a new cult following thanks to Web sites and software that do the trick.

In case you have no idea what I’m talking about, check out my backmasking page.

Update: Here is the Wall Street Journal’s archive of the story.

Wall Street Journal Article on Backmasking

I received word today that The Wall Street Journal is going to go ahead with the article about baskmasking in which they are featuring my backmasking page! The reporter also asked if I had a photo to send — I’m a little stunned that they would want my face in their paper.

More updates as I get them.

Another Backmasking Interview

I’m pretty excited because today I was contacted by a reporter from a big newspaper. She would like to do an interview with me for a story about the re-emergence of backmasking.

I did an interview for the Salt Lake Tribune back in April, and while that paper is pretty big, this paper is freaking huge! Wow, I’ve hit the big time and I’m totally thrilled. More details to come after I actually do the interview.

My Salt Lake Tribune Interview

Yay! Today The Salt Lake Tribune published the article about backmasking that I was interviewed for.

Enter “backmasking” into the Google search engine and nearly 9,000 sites pop up. One of them is “Stairway to Heaven: Backwards” (https://jeffmilner.com/backmasking.htm ), a site established by Jeff Milner, a 25-year-old student, part-time lifeguard and bed salesman.

“As a kid, a cousin of mine told me he took his ‘Stairway to Heaven’ record and played it backwards hearing some kind of satanic message,” Milner says. “I never had a chance to hear it myself. . . . Then when the technology came along to do it on the computer, I jumped at the chance.”

He copied the song from the 1971 Led Zeppelin album onto his hard drive, then used the Windows Sound Recorder application to reverse it. He found what sounded like lines about the devil.

Update: I’ve posted the complete contents of the Salt Lake Tribune backmasking article in the comments.
