Astronomy author and lecturer James J. Mullaney, who served as Curator of Exhibits and Astronomy at Pittsburgh's original Buhl Planetarium and Institute of Popular Science in the late 1960s and early 1970s, will be the guest on the national radio show, Coast-to-Coast AM, late Wednesday night/early Thursday morning.

Radio program host George Noory will interview James Mullaney, on  the nation's most popular overnight radio show, on June 27 from 2:00 to 5:00 a.m. Eastern Daylight Saving Time (June 26, 11:00 p.m. to June 27, 2:00 a.m. Pacific Daylight Saving Time).

On the radio program, James Mullaney will talk about his new book, "Celebrating the Universe!", and the life of Edgar Cayce, a topic which Mr. Mullaney has researched for many years. Coast-to-Coast AM can be heard on more than 560 radio stations throughout North America, in addition to SiriusXM Satellite Radio (Talk Radio channel 246). The program can also be heard world-wide, through Internet audio streaming from many of these radio stations.

This will be James Mullaney's second interview on Coast-to-Coast AM. His first guest appearance on the program occurred 2008 January 16-17.
