Radio shutdown shock by Geller


Heart FM presenter Jonathan “Jono” Coleman was lost for words today when an experiment by psychic guest Uri Geller sent the radio station off the air for eight seconds.


The Heart signal disappeared at the precise moment Uri asked its listeners to reach out through their radios.


Sceptical morning show presenter Coleman admits has been forced to reassess Uri’s powers by the cut-out, which baffled Heart engineers.


“I had been taking the mickey a bit, but this was just amazing,” he said.


Even Uri was taken by surprise by the effect, which he had not planned. “It actually amazed me too. I thought Jono’s morning crew were pulling my leg.”


Spookier still, Uri had visited Heart to talk about his second novel Ella, the story of a girl whose supernatural powers knock out a TV station

“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 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.”
