A star prize
27th May 1999
A mindblowing prize
A NEWCASTLE Emlyn mother of three should have been able to predict that she would scoop the top prize in a radio competition.
For Jane Yates of Coed y Bryn correctly guessed the shape telepathic artist Uri Geller was drawing 250 miles away in the broadcasting studios of Atlantic 252 in London.
And Jane also claims that Uri Geller mended her car clock.
“I was, listening to the radio and stuck in a traffic jam in Newcastle Emlyn when Uri Geller told listeners that he would try to mend their clocks. Just for a laugh the children said ‘Go on mum, mend the car clock’ – so I and my youngest daughter put our hands over it and it started working! I could hardly believe it.”
When Jane got home she turned on the radio and Uri Geller asked listeners to concentrate on the shape he was drawing.
“The shape of a star came into my head, so I drew it and sent it off and thought nothing more about it,” she said.
Last week the postman arrived with the first prize – a signed copy of Geller’s novel Dead Cold – with the star shape drawn in the back – and a signed crystal from his personal collection.
“I am setting up my own company designing websites so I am hoping the crystal will bring me some luck,” said Jane.

“Uri Geller gave an absolutely resonating talk on his life and career. He had every single magician in the room on the edge of their seats trying to digest as much information as they could. Uri emphasized that the path to frame is through uniqueness and charisma and that professional entertainers must be creative in their pursuits of success and never shy away from publicity.”

“The man is a natural magician. He does everything with great care, meticulous misdirection and flawless instinct. The nails are real, the keys are really borrowed, the envelopes are actually sealed, there are no stooges, there are no secret radio devices and there are no props from the magic catalogues.”

“Eternity is down the hall And you sit there bending spoons In your mind, in your mind”
“I Have watched Uri Geller… I have seen that so I am a believer. It was my house key and the only way I would be able to use it is get a hammer and beat it out back flat again.”
“Better than watching Geller bending silver spoons, better than witnessing new born nebulae’s in bloom”
