  • (1888PressRelease) March 27, 2012 - On Friday March 9, 2012 The Kate Valentine UFO Show which airs live on WVNJ 1160 AM at 1 pm every Friday in the New York, Tri State area with guest Peter Robbins paid homage to Budd Hopkins and Len Stringfield, two of ufology's outstanding figures who are no longer with us.

    Kate Valentine who interviewed Mr. Hopkins May 12, 2010 (link to podcast) and Peter Robbins, one of Americas's best known UFO investigative writers, remembered "two very different men with one common passion . . .ufology"- Kate Valentine.

    Referring to himself as a " serious student" Peter Robbins spoke highly of Len Springfield's published work describing him as "a pragmatist, a rationalist and very much a grounded real world investigator." He went on to describe his one and only encounter with Len Stringfield as "life changing."

    Peter Robbins who was a friend and colleague of Budd Hopkins and instrumental in the start up of The Intruders Foundation, pointed out that Budd Hopkins was one of the finest late generation abstract painters to come out of New York City and was delighted The New York Times obituary addressed that. The obituary was given a respectful 2/3 of a page with 2 photos and "when they made reference to his UFO related work it was without mocking and surprisingly respectful. I could not think of a better honorarium from a newspaper that has always had its issues with the subject at hand."-Peter Robbins

    Peter Robbins shared with Kate Valentine and her audience the origination of Budd Hopkins' interest in UFO's and the story that brought them together. Kate Valentine and Peter Robbins answered questions posed by listeners such as "for what would Budd Hopkins and Len Stringfield want to be remembered for the most?"

    This tribute; In remembrance of Budd Hopkins and Len Stringfield with Kate Valentine and Peter Robbins and Kate Valentine's 2010 interview with Budd Hopkins can be found on podcast at atlanticcoastufos.com website or on iTunes.

    The Kate Valentine UFO Show airs live Fridays at 1pm and re-broadcasts Sunday at 4pm on WVNJ 1160 am in the NY Tri-State area.
