Question:

"John it was you that convinced Bob to come forward wasn't it? Or was it George Knapp..."

Answer:
I had done an "On The Record" show with George on Sunday morning. I had introduced George to Bob a couple of weeks before. This was about a week after Bob left the project.

After the OTR show Channel 8 and George were flooded with phone calls asking for more UFO stuff. George called me up Sunday evening and told me about it and said, "What are we going to do for an encore?" I told him I would think about it.

I called Bob and asked if he wanted to come forward and he said yes but he wanted his identity hidden. So I called George and told him Bob was willing.

He arranged for a TV unit to come up and set up in my driveway for the 5 o'clock news. I have some video of that maybe I will post on youtube.

Bob sat in front of the truck with the sun in the background so we could not see his face. The name "Dennis" was on the screen with the live shots of Bob. Using Dennis was a dig at Bob's boss Dennis Mariani.

Bob did the show and the next day George asked his boss if he could do a six part special on Bob. Stohldau said he wanted to meet Bob face to face first. So the next evening Bob L., George and his boss Stohdaul and Gene Huff met at my house where Stohdahl grilled Bob for about 2 hours.

2 days later Stohdaul told George: "Go for it". The 6 part special aired later that summer.
