I only interviewed a few stars in my whole UFO "career", although I met many who are interested in UFOs. One of the artists I interviewed was Jos=E9 Ramalho, a very popular musician in Brazil, with a vast repertory: http://tinyurl.com/3nxw3vb "Flying Saucers Really Got Me Concerned", is a part of one of the songs about the UFO Phenomena that he sings. He has many others, some very particular and interesting. And popular. You know, I concentrate my activities in interviewing other types of people, like I did with so many top ranking government officers and military in Brazil, such as a few generals, some former ministers etc. So it was a (good) surprise that I got contacted by Shirley's people and that she wanted to know more about UFOs in my country. I look forward to meeting and interviewing her (I almost had a chance to do so with Dan Aykroyd). And since I had this opportunity confirmed with Shirley, last week, I started doing my homework and I have gone through a great number of websites with all sorts of info about her as a person, as an actress, as an author, about her activist role in several areas etc, and also about her UFO statements and what people in this area think of them etc. I must say that, so far, among the info that I got about her, yours isn't majority, while shared with several people. Of course I will take it in consideration, thank you. I really appreciate all sorts of views about her from Listers to get better prepared to meet and interview the lady. Have a great Sunday. A. J.
