Listen and Learn from Mae Brussell (1922-1988)

JULY 21, 1971

Born in Beverly Hills 1922, Mae Brussell was the daughter of the Rabbi Edgar Magnin and great granddaughter of Isaac Magnin, founder of the I. Magnin clothing stores. Mae grew up in Hollywood, when not traveling throughout the world with her family.

By the time President Kennedy was murdered in 1963, Mae was married with five kids. Not satisfied with the Warren Commission Report on the assassination, Mae bought herself (as a Christmas present) the 26 volume Warren Commission testimonies and began reading, filing and cross-indexing. Not only did she find unnerving connections to high level government officials, the CIA, Nazi Germany, corporations , and organized crime (to name a few), but she began to see relationships to many other current and past significant historical and political events throughout the world.

In June 1971, after 7 years of research and now living in Carmel, California, Mae appeared as a guest on KLRB, a local FM radio station independently owned by Bob and Gloria Barron. Mae discussed her views on political assassinations and the New York Times release of the Pentagon Papers. The response was so good that Mae became a regular weekly guest and before too long had her own show, Dialogue: Conspiracy, which turned into the influential radio program World Watchers International.

In 1983 Mae's show moved to KAZU in Pacific Grove, CA and there it stayed until her last broadcast (#862) on June 13, 1988.

There were times when death threats forced Mae off the air -- including one by Manson family member Sandra Good in September of 1975. At one point Mae resorted to recording her shows at home on her small General Electric cassette tape recorder and privately mailed out copies to her subscribers.

Her research into current and past political events continued until her death of cancer on October 3rd, 1988.
