Calling All Brats...
"Eastern Brats, That is"

Episode 362 April 23, 2018

“Our Eastern Family And

Their Eastern Brats II!”


The EAL Radio Show is planning on another Episode of "Eastern Brats II" for Episode 362 that airs Monday evening, April 23, 2018. 

We are encouraging and calling upon all Eastern Brats to join us. Simply E-mail us at
[email protected] and let us know if you can be with us. Please include your telephone number that you will use to call into the show on 213-816-1611 that evening, as our producer board does not have the capability of showing telephone names, and Neal will see your number to activate your microphone.

We know that the Eastern Family had wonderful years working for a prestigious airline. Their children grew up in an airline family that shared the love for Eastern, so they too, learned to love Eastern. Some became Eastern employees when they grew up and knew many of their parents' friends...some were even Godparents to them.  They lived it for many years before Eastern closed, and they are, what they call themselves, "Eastern Brats". We want you on our show! Once we know how many of our Guest "Eastern Brats" are joining us,  Neal will write a partial script for the evening and list the names of the Guest "Brats" who sign up for the show in the order they will speak and send out a script.

Please call in at 213-816-1611 at 7:00 P. M. ET as we depart the gate, on April 23, 2018 and join in with our "Eastern Brats" as they share their experiences as children of an Eastern Family. Listen in by clicking the hyperlink to take you to our website: or

“EAL’s Close Encounters Of The Third Kind” - UFOs


The EAL Radio Show once again brings you an exciting adventure and this time Episode 363 scheduled for April 30, 2018, will bring us Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs). In the 1940s, two of our own Eastern pilots reported sightings while flying on a DC-3 trip. They were scoffed and laughed at and made fun of by many. Recently not only the crew of an American Airlines saw a sighting they reported as having close encounters with…a mysterious object flying high above Arizona last month…but also a Learjet pilot who called into the Control Tower minutes before.


Do we believe this to be true; Spaceships…flying discs…extraterrestrial craft?  More than one or two people reported this phenomena or “encounters” of UFOs as it goes back as far as the early 1500s. There have been many airline pilots that reported this “phenomena.” Some to name a few:


1954 Royal Dutch Airlines DC-4

1959 Crew of a Pan American Flight from Honolulu to San Francisco

1995 America West Airlines Flight 564, Bovina, Texas      

1952 Pilots of a DC-4 airliner of Pan American Airways

1986 Japan Air Lines Flight 1628 

2006 United Airlines employees and pilots and many more…


Please join us on the radio April 30, 2018 by calling in at 213-816-1611 to hear about the many others that have spotted these “flying object’s and learn the locations around the world. We depart the gate at 7:00 P. M. EDT, so call in or listen in on your computers by clicking this hyperlink:
