Geller causes radio silence
A RADIO station’s bid to brighten up Friday the 13th turned to disaster yesterday when Uri Geller succeeded in putting them off the air.
Heart FM presenter Jonathan Coleman invited the celebrity spoon-bender to inspire a psychic experience among his audience. But at the precise moment listeners were invited to touch their radios to the sound of soft music, the London station blacked out for eight seconds.
Coleman explained: “I am a sceptic about all this and I just thought Uri would come in and bend a few spoons. We were playing mystic music and he was asking people to touch their radios. Then the producer dashed in and said we were off air.
“The engineers were running around but they could not find an explanation.”
Even Geller was surprised and phoned his wife to check that her radio had silenced.

“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”
