Apparently he did a couple of years ago as the result of a fall.

Art was a great talker and entertainer, no doubt about it.  Art Bell was P.T. Barnum, and Coast is the Barnum and Bailey Circus. Even the greatest will one day cease to exist.

The real one was kinda a douche to everyone (to some degree and at different times in his life).  So the legendary one is best left to discussion.

He may have been a douche irl, but I still enjoy listening to streams of his shows online. Can guarantee that on one of about 4 streams I have on my Sonos I can find one I either know I enjoyed listening to before or only vaguely remember. Very rare I find one I haven't heard, but some are like comfy blankets on a winter night.

Landscaping Lesson from Art:
Since the dry days of July have hit I have watered a 15' by 20' area of my yard to keep it green like a yard back east. I have no illusions of changing the desert or a semi-arid region on a bigger scale.

I think of it as the legacy backyard green patch, LOL.

Unpopular opinion: Art was great, but he got a long way doing that fakey heh-heh thing with his voice to make his comments seem ironic or insightful or brilliant. George does the wow-gosh thing, and the same comments can come off uninspired and ingratiating.

Art Bell is to George Noory as Robert Reed is to Jim Nabors. Not that either was closeted, but they both have their own brand of swish.

Title: Re: The Legendary Art Bell
Post by: Bob on July 10, 2018, 08:17:52 PM
I've had a long relationship with Art (not like the one Heather may have been having).  He's been both a mentor and a thorn at different times in my life.  I once wrote a blog discussing how I found it suspicious that Art would remarry just three months after Ramona died.  Art threatened to sue me for stating my opinion of  "something just wasn't adding up".  He later retracted that threat and simply asked me to remove it because "you know none of that is true".

Instead of being sued I decided to remove the blog post.
But even to this day, we have more questions than answers about Ramona's death...among other things.

I will, however, say that when I needed help as a new broadcaster/podcaster, Art reached out to me by phone.  I never had his number (he always called with his number blocked) but he would call almost anytime I needed his advice.
 
His real-life persona wasn't the greatest, and he admitted to that.  But his radio persona was the greatest of any radio host that has ever lived. Nobody will ever replicate the storytelling ability he had. He could thrill you with the most mundane of events...only because he was our equivalency of P.T. Barnum.

While he wasn't the greatest father to most of his children, I truly believe he tried to make up for those failures by being a great dad to his last two children.  They will be his lasting legacy, not those who despise him for leaving.

Just my two cents.

Did art smother Ramona?

Is MV another one of Art’s illigitimate kids?  Is heather?

What was Art’s favorite flavor of ice cream? 

How did he take his coffee?

Did he smell good?  Can you describe the scent?  Was it woodsy?  Vanilla tinged? Musky?

How many transferable machine guns did art own?  Who gets them in the will?  Rowland or his child bride?

A fine vignette for sure.

Art was also a model ham, but again that's a "radio" persona.

Sadly for a time his "legacy" will revolve around Heather and the cuckshed, until such time as she or his family move on.

Longtime lurker finally coming out of the (B)EllGab closet because Commandant Ell is making us if we want access to any of the good stuff on this site (damn/praise BE). Lurked at BellGab since Art announced his final C2C retirement after the 2010 Ghost to Ghost show. Discovered Art in the mid-90s, probably '96, and it literally changed my life. It was like I finally found where I belonged and who I belonged with. I worked nights back then, usually got off work around midnight-1 a.m., and would spend the rest of the night hanging on Art and whatever guest's every word. I would bust ass to finish my work by 1 a.m., listen to the start of the show on my way home, sit in the driveway and continue to listen until the bottom of the hour, then race into the house and turn on the radio before he came out of the break and listen the rest of the night. I never heard anything like it before, never knew Art or his show existed until my dad told me about it. Great times, those '90s shows. Absolute magic.

By the way, I've never posted on a message board before, so this is my "first time" and I'm sure I'll screw up in the early going. Please be gentle. Or at least as gentle as you can  ;)

Any word on Art's autopsy report? I know Knappy has been trying to track it down, without success. If foul play isn't suspected it may never be released. I'm not sure what the law is in Nevada or any other state, but Airyn may wish to keep the results private.

Is an autopsy always necessary in medical examiner cases?
In cases of a natural death, where no crime is suspected and there is no public health risk, an autopsy is not usually required.

Thanks Metron. I didn't find anything on the Nye County site, but apparently Clark County handles Nye County's autopsies, and according to the Clark County site they "investigate all deaths caused by any criminal means, violence or suicide, and any unattended death, whatever the cause." I remember seeing or hearing something shortly after Art died that he was surrounded by his family when he died, if that has anything to do with it. On the Facebook video announcing his death, the Nye County Sheriff said an autopsy would be conducted soon, so who knows. Anthony Bourdain's tox report came back a couple weeks after his death, although that was ruled a suicide and it was in France.

I guess if we never hear an official cause of death we'll have to go with complications from COPD. Dannion did say on the C2C tribute show that Art had been in severe pain and "it just wasn't worth it." I found "it just wasn't worth it" to be curious wording. It insinuates something intentional on Art's behalf unless I'm reading too much into it.

Either way Art's gone so it's all window dressing at this point. Just a matter of curiosity to close the door once and for all.

Thanks again for pointing me in the right direction Metron.

There are some rumors flying around that he committed suicide, but we can take that with a grain of salt, since every possible rumor about him floated around anyway.

I do know here in Michigan, a woman said her niece died in her 20's, and they said the autopsy results would take at least 4 months. I talked to her 4 months later and she said the autopsy still wasn't back yet.

The real story behind Art Bell's 130 rescued orphans.  I thought I'd summarize it here.

We've all heard the same or similar story parroted everywhere (from Art's C2C page):

"Then he raised money in Alaska that allowed Art to charter a DC 8, fly to Vietnam and rescue 130 Vietnamese Orphans stranded in Saigon at the war's end. They were eventually all brought to America and adopted by American families."

What really happened:

In April 1975, the Jaycees of Anchorage (a group of about 40 young men - Jaycee stands for Junior Chamber, an international club) spearheaded a fast fundraiser with the intent to charter one of Ed Daly's World Airways DC-8 planes and rescue orphans out of Saigon.  The fundraiser "went viral" going statewide in Alaska and raised 130 thousand dollars.  That was enough money and they had 15-20 volunteers standing by at a moment's notice to jump on the plane once they got the green light to go.  They spent a lot of time talking to both US and South Vietnamese governments and orphanages in Saigon.  They never got the green light so the mission to Vietnam didn't go.  Instead the money went to charter an Alaskan Airlines 727 to transport Vietnamese orphans from Seattle to Philadelphia.  The orphans had already been airlifted from Saigon to Seattle by government military C-141 planes.  After the Philadelphia charter, and other expenses, they had only spent 1/3 of the pot of money.  They pledged the rest to help children in Alaska.

It appears that Art was a DJ on radio station KENI in Anchorage at the time, so likely had a role in the fundraising.  It is unclear if he was a member of the 40 strong Jaycees (Junior Chamber) club there.  One of the Jaycee co-chairmen of this "Operation Airlift" ie. the guy running it was Chuck May, it is not known at this time of writing who the other chairman was.

This is all taken from the Fairbanks Daily Times-Miner.  Articles on April 8, 9, 16 and May 2 and July 11, 1975

It's been three months since Art died so we're in that window then. I know Noory has been giving periodic updates on trying to get the tox reports, and on a whim I went back and listened to last night's C2C open and sure enough he had another update, said the coroner said that Art's tox report isn't back yet. So there definitely was an autopsy and we'll find out what officially happened in due time.

I live in Ohio, and my mom had been dead about three days before a friend found her in her house (she lived alone). Smoked herself to death. I had spoken to her just a few days before. I talked with the coroner in her driveway and he never even asked me about an autopsy, which I thought strange since she had been deceased about 72 hours. So maybe per Ohio law he didn't see a reason for an autopsy.

Like everyone else I have wondered what Art's last days were like, because I emailed him on April 9 (the first time I ever had any actual contact with him) about a classic bumper music question that's been driving me nuts, and he answered me back on April 10 saying he wasn't sure what song it was and if I could send him more information. I responded to him that same day, April 10, giving him what more info I could, and I never heard from him again. Of course he died three days later.

We've all heard the same or similar story parroted everywhere (from Art's C2C page):

"Then he raised money in Alaska that allowed Art to charter a DC 8, fly to Vietnam and rescue 130 Vietnamese Orphans stranded in Saigon at the war's end. They were eventually all brought to America and adopted by American families."

What really happened:

In April 1975, the Jaycees of Anchorage (a group of about 40 young men - Jaycee stands for Junior Chamber, an international club) spearheaded a fast fundraiser with the intent to charter one of Ed Daly's World Airways DC-8 planes and rescue orphans out of Saigon.  The fundraiser "went viral" going statewide in Alaska and raised 130 thousand dollars.  That was enough money and they had 15-20 volunteers standing by at a moment's notice to jump on the plane once they got the green light to go.  They spent a lot of time talking to both US and South Vietnamese governments and orphanages in Saigon.  They never got the green light so the mission to Vietnam didn't go.  Instead the money went to charter an Alaskan Airlines 727 to transport Vietnamese orphans from Seattle to Philadelphia.  The orphans had already been airlifted from Saigon to Seattle by government military C-141 planes.  After the Philadelphia charter, and other expenses, they had only spent 1/3 of the pot of money.  They pledged the rest to help children in Alaska.

It appears that Art was a DJ on radio station KENI in Anchorage at the time, so likely had a role in the fundraising.  It is unclear if he was a member of the 40 strong Jaycees (Junior Chamber) club there.  One of the Jaycee co-chairmen of this "Operation Airlift" ie. the guy running it was Chuck May, it is not known at this time of writing who the other chairman was.

This is all taken from the Fairbanks Daily Times-Miner.  Articles on April 8, 9, 16 and May 2 and July 11, 1975

This is great

Art involved in trafficking 130 child slaves.  (Just like he did with Airyn after he killed Ramona)

Then abandons them in shithole Philly.

Then pretends to be some white knight hero while the poor kids are probably never seen of again after their use in massage parlors and Democrat pizza parties sex magik pineal gland eating is done.

What a dickhead.

It's been three months since Art died so we're in that window then. I know Noory has been giving periodic updates on trying to get the tox reports, and on a whim I went back and listened to last night's C2C open and sure enough he had another update, said the coroner said that Art's tox report isn't back yet. So there definitely was an autopsy and we'll find out what officially happened in due time.

I live in Ohio, and my mom had been dead about three days before a friend found her in her house (she lived alone). Smoked herself to death. I had spoken to her just a few days before. I talked with the coroner in her driveway and he never even asked me about an autopsy, which I thought strange since she had been deceased about 72 hours. So maybe per Ohio law he didn't see a reason for an autopsy.

Like everyone else I have wondered what Art's last days were like, because I emailed him on April 9 (the first time I ever had any actual contact with him) about a classic bumper music question that's been driving me nuts, and he answered me back on April 10 saying he wasn't sure what song it was and if I could send him more information. I responded to him that same day, April 10, giving him what more info I could, and I never heard from him again. Of course he died three days later.


Art would had known what song you were talking about.  Those songs were the soundtrack to his miserable life.


“Art” didn’t know because dumbass heather was pretending to be art and was wearing her art bell skin suit while answering his emails.  Heather would only know if you asked about some Danzig song.


Art had been dead a week by then.  Heather was wearing art’s skin suit.  That is why she couldn’t bear to see art’s Corpse too.  Because she skinned him and the mortician just tossed his skin suit in the casket with his degloved body.

I'm not an Art basher and I'm not an Art apologist. He was one hell of a radio host, maybe the best ever, but he certainly did some off-putting things like marrying a 20-year-old three months after Ramona died and the whole Heather fiasco. All of us have done some things we regret and wish we could take back, but the Heather thing was really strange. She goes from being a perfect stranger to Art staking his credibility on her, in a matter of months. And even when it became obvious nobody was buying it, he still force-fed the notion that she was steadily improving and even became angry that people didn't like her or her show. What was in it for Art to be this obsessive and possessive about her? I know people say he was getting a shot of leg from her, but it's difficult to imagine a guy his age with his health issues, especially difficulty breathing, getting after it with Heather. There had to be something else that made him go down with the ship on that one.

For me it doesn't taint all the years of incredible radio he gave us, that had nothing to do with the Heather situation, but it makes you wonder where his mind was at toward the end. Maybe COPD wasn't his only ailment. Sad.

In a very serious tone tonight he tells the audience that they/Coast called the coroner's office as they have regularly been doing since Art's passing but were told the results of the autopsy/toxicology aren't in. Jorch then admonishes the audience to not speculate on the cause of death, he knows people are doing that all over the place 'We know Art had COPD ........ but there are all kinds of wild possibilities'  What a stooge, in the same breath he lectures people not to speculate he fans the flames with 'all kinds of wild possibilities'. Then he emphasized it's been 3 months, a long time folks ..... absolutely suggesting that one of the wild possibilities is some kind of conspiracy involved.

Fine reporting there  :o

1. He left the airwaves in 2002, as full time host yes but he was the regular Sat-Sun host for years.

2. He broadcasted the show from his radio station in Pahrump. Nope, wrong, fake news. Art never hosted Coast to Coast, Dreamland, Dark Matter or Midnight in the Desert from his radio station.

He was abusing them, since a fatal dose is well above anything therapeutic, and he can not have been unaware of the danger.  The line is blurry and, in the pursuit of oblivion, they can't be sure when they cross over from temporary to permanent.

By well-above, I would surmise this would mean on orders of magnitude. (An addiction versus an extra this or that on this particular night by mistake) Addicted or not it, was accidental and they would know that.

Not orders of magnitude -- the "safe" increases in dosage, under a doctor's supervision, are pretty shallow steps.  But self-dosing at home at levels above what you tell any one doctor, you know what you're doing.  It's as intentional as russian roulette.

This too. Were they all prescribed through one doctor? We may never know.
All I know is when I had a couple of bad molars pulled last year they would only prescribe me ibuprofen. I was actually cussing out that oral surgeon under my breath as I writhed around the couch in pain that day.
Perhaps this level of concern hadn't reached Pahrump.

Nevada does have a prescription monitoring program:
Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP)
The Nevada Prescription Monitoring program is a tracking program managed by the Nevada State Board of Pharmacy. The program allows a patient’s prescription history to be readily available to practitioners and pharmacists. The program helps evaluate a course of patient care and assists healthcare providers in determining if a patient is abusing controlled substances.

NV PMP Reports
Prescription monitoring program reports contain a summary of patient history for schedule II, III and IV controlled substances the patient has received. The report specifies drug name, quantity, date written, date filled, prescriber, dispenser and method of payment. These records are reported by the dispensing pharmacy or dispensing practitioner.

http://healthiernv.org/resources/prescribers/ (http://healthiernv.org/resources/prescribers/)

Interesting in that it says "allows it to be available" so there is mandated reporting, but is it mandated that it must be checked prior to prescribing and dispensing?

Hopefully, Knapp will bring on a Nevada doctor to sort this all out.

We have one in this state, too.  It sounds impressive on paper but, in practical terms, it means every single provider has to upload a clunky text file to a government database on a regular basis, and you rely on everyone to check it before prescribing.  It's better than nothing.

Throw enough opiates at someone and they will. And don't say it like its a failure in his personality, its chemical dependence, he couldn't help it.

Same with Prince.  Don't quote me but didn't he have severe back/hip pain from jumping off amplifiers while wearing grossly high heeled boots?  He was able to afford the fancier opiate fentanyl, over Art's Oxycodone, but the end results were the same.  We are frail creatures when it comes to pain management.  Our brains will fabricate any excuse to attain that elusive, pain free state.  I really wish poor Art had never fallen down that telephone pole way back in his younger days.

I looked but couldn't find anything.  I think he wrote an album called Fallen Angels though they weren't falling off telephone poles, but knowing Dylan, perhaps they were.  I did find this interesting set of Dylan lyrics' though:

Dr. Filth, he keeps his world inside of a leather cup
But all his sexless patients, they're trying to blow it up
Now his nurse, some local loser
She's in charge of the cyanide hole
And she also keeps the cards that read
"Have mercy on his soul"
They all play on the penny whistles, you can hear them blow
If you lean your head out far enough from Desolation Row

Carisoprodol - It can treat pain and stiffness from muscle spasms.
Diazepam - It can treat anxiety, muscle spasms, and seizures.
Hydrocodone - It can treat pain.
Oxycodone - It can treat moderate to severe pain.
A doctor would tell a patient to take BOTH hydrocodone and oxycodone?  I wonder if Art had one of those from an old prescription and decided on his own to combine them, probably knowing full well what the result could be.  Of course, he could have gotten it without a prescription, too.

I suspect the "accidental" diagnosis was for reputation and insurance purposes.
Perhaps in ruling “accident” vs. “suicide”, the Vegas authorities were offering a final “tip of the cap” to one of their favorite Nevada characters— the Patron Saint of late night workers, insomniacs, and edge-dwellers everywhere.

Yes, in the absence of a note, an eyewitness, or any contrary evidence,  the finding would have to be “accidental”. 

The truth will remain a mystery,

How I bumped into Art Bell on the airwaves:
I had moved to Bucksport Maine USA in 94 and had to raise my daughter as a stay at home parent when I first settled into town. I had an old AM/FM/shortwave radio and being super bored one night I started surfing the SW\FM bands. It was Arts voice that first caught my attention. He had the natural talent of making me feel that perhaps he stopped by and was just having a chat with you. His show had a unique laid back, how ya doing kind of feel to it even though he was thousands of miles away and had no idea who you were. Some say he created theatre of the mind. Bang on. He was an entertainer and a master of his craft. I was a fan from the first night I tuned in. Unique guests, topics, and callers. Weather you agreed with them or not it didn't seem to matter. It was entertaining and I think that was the point. Not to prove Bigfoot was found and finally captured in central park, proof Aliens had landed on earth and were living in secret in the back stock room at a local Wal-mart, and JC of course. Who could forget him calling Art weather it was a set up or not it you stuck around to see where he was taking things that night. The spooky Ghost to Ghost. It was indeed a great ride and those who follow will never fill his shoes or have his style. Art was the total package. I think Keith said "just like The Tonight show there will be many hosts but never another Johnny Carson. So thanks Art for making us laugh, scratch our heads, roll our eyes, share your stories, and keep us company late into the night at home and out on the road. You will be missed. "West of the Rockies, hello! Your on the air"...Rest in piece my friend.....

If only there were someone he could have reached out to.  Someone who could make the street connections for him.  Someone who could wade through that seamy underworld.  Perhaps we'll never know.  Or maybe the Pahrump coppers are just playing clueless and are moving their investigation right along.  If that were so, I would hope they could nab the perps before they disappear.

Yep. Art was a really smart guy. He had to have known those four drugs taken together could, and likely would, be fatal. Plus, meds come with instructions of not to mix, etc. With the constant pain he was in, getting worse all the time, struggling to breathe as Dannion said, he was suffering a slow, excruciating death. What was the point in continuing? It's not hard to imagine Art saying "That's enough" and taking that drug combo and going to sleep, knowing he would never wake up. And if that's what he did, I don't blame him at all.

Even if he hadn't died of the OD, how much longer did he really have in that condition? A few weeks? A few months, tops? He may have hit his 73rd birthday in June, maybe. He almost certainly wouldn't have lived out the year based on what we know about his condition. And his quality of life in that time leading to a natural death would have been shit and getting shittier. His doctor or doctors may have given a prognosis on his life expectancy at that point and he figured the hell with it, I'm checking out.

It's all speculation of course, but it doesn't make sense that a guy with Art's intelligence could make such a mistake with that witches brew of meds. Just my two cents.

I don't believe it was intentional.  He just had a son born.  He may not have valued his earlier children but he appeared to love his latest offspring.  I imagine he would have liked to stay on Earth for a bit longer. He was still posting on twitter and facebook with no indication of depression.  I think he had a senior moment and accidentally took his meds too close together.  We'll never know though.

"Mixing prescription opioid painkillers with a class of drugs that includes popular sedatives such as Valium and Xanax can cause a fatal overdose, U.S. health officials warned.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration said it will require “boxed warnings” on 389 different products to inform health professionals and the public of this potentially lethal drug interaction, FDA Commissioner Dr. Robert Califf said during a media briefing.

Benzodiazepines -- which include Valium and Xanax -- affect the central nervous system, and are used to treat conditions like anxiety, insomnia and seizures, said Dr. Doug Throckmorton, deputy director of regulatory programs with the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research." -CBS News Sept 2016

I also hope it wasn't intentional but can understand if it was. Yes, it's also easy to see him getting confused as to what meds he took and when he took them that day or the night before (I do that sometimes now and I'm nowhere near Art's age). After all, this is a guy who super-glued his lips together during a show and fell off his front porch.

My mom was on a bunch of meds as her health failed and I have no idea how she kept it all straight. She too was on powerful painkillers and other meds and had to space them all out throughout the day. Seemed like an accident waiting to happen. Looks like it did to Art. RIP buddy

I wonder if an independent medical examiner, one that is not affiliated with the NYE County Sheriff's Office and one who would not even know who Art Bell is, would reach the same conclusion that the medication overdose was 'accidental'.
 
Pure speculation here but Heather's irrational behavior these past few months might make sense, to outside observers, if the reason for her behavior was because she knew Art was thinking about suicide. Maybe he mentioned it in passing as a joke or off hand comment, but she never took him serious or could persuade him otherwise and then suddenly he's dead. She'd not only be overcome with grief but also with regret and shame that she could not do, or did not do, enough to possibly help him.

There is lots of speculation...

Even though the Medical Examiner's report answered a lot of questions it also opened up a lot of them as well.
So apropos for Arthur William Bell.

Patients with COPD lose their CO2 drive to breathe so they are left with only the hypoxic drive, opiates impair your hypoxic drive.

But Friday the 13th is simply to coincidental for me to think it was accidental. It could be, but Art was a smart man, not a very moral one but certainly a smart one. I miss the hope he'll one day host another show and I concur with your thoughts on the subject and I don't hold it against him. I think euthanasia, and suicide, should be legal.

I could see Art saying enough is enough and exiting on his own, and I could see him just getting confused as to the dosage he took that day or day before. However, and I mentioned this earlier in this thread, I emailed him on April 9 with a question about a piece of bumper music from the mid-90s and sent a link to the YouTube video of his show with the song I was referring to. He answered me on April 10 requesting more information about the bumper music piece. I answered him back later on April 10 with what info I could give him, and never heard back. He was dead three days later. So from my email exchange with him, I can only surmise that he was very much with it mentally at that point and makes me lean toward thinking that he had had enough and left this life of his own volition.

And the Friday the 13th factor certainly weighs heavily in that line of thinking, almost like a wink and a nod from Art to his fans who are paying attention.

That's the problem when dying from COPD you are all there up to the end. It's an ugly death. I think your reasoning is quite sound and I'm in complete agreement.

It's definitely hard to explain her behavior since he died. Grieving manifests differently in different people, but we all pick up the pieces and move on with our lives. We have jobs to get back to, obligations to tend to, lives to lead. And we usually don't have longer than a week or two to do this. Yes, we are still grieving, but we carry on and grieve simultaneously. She seems to have completely shut down over this. It just makes you think, as I believe you have correctly stated, that there is more to the story here. Maybe she did know in advance. If that's the case, then it's more than grief with her, it's a lot of things. Hard to say. But yes, her behavior is very odd to say the least.

It could still be high drama on her part, wanting attention, but since the release of the autopsy report and now knowing the cause of death, and the distinct possibility that Art took matters into his own hands, it makes me wonder what Heather knew and when she knew it.

Got a laugh remembering his descriptions of these incidents.  I believe he controlled his exit and it was no accident.

I agree and it makes me feel very disappointed and a bit angry at Art. It seems so selfish and cowardly to do that, IMO. I want to remember the good, fun times, great things about him not let this possibility cloud my memories of him.

And thanks to you for your insight as well.

For me, the suicide angle was a leap at first, but all the information taken collectively, I'm 60-40 now, maybe 70-30, that Art left of his own accord. A lot of it just makes sense. I believe I remember Art talking on his show, probably more than once, that he was a proponent of assisted suicide if things were bad enough for someone, that he could understand not wanting to suffer anymore. He admitted on the air that he almost committed suicide after Ramona died. Whitley said on the tribute show I think that he and Anne got in the car immediately and drove to Pahrump to talk him out of it. And that emergency room nurse's post that she thought it was strange that he had such a lethal mixture of drugs in his system. Just everything starts to add up. Art always lived outside the box and on his own terms, that's what made him so interesting and gave his shows that edge. So it's not a reach that he died outside the box on his own terms. It would be quintessential Art to have gone out that way. And, you know, on Friday the 13th ...

Art Bell's ouija board message on last night's Jimmy Church show:

All things are done by choice and there are no accidents.
Though not a deliberate act there was purpose behind the decisions I made.
I know that now and not then.
This was a decision I made freely, this I know as well now.
This is my final signoff as I fade to black.
Further proof that Knapp is not the vulture, Church is.

In the fullness of time we'll know but until then....

I don't think that we will ever know.  I see a number of us applauding Art for cutting short what would probably have been a nasty, debilitating, unwinnable fight against a deadly disease and if that is the way it was, then good.  Some acquaintance of Art's claimed that Art was already having trouble breathing (something that must have come on fast because Art looked pretty good in those drone videos.)  My only question at this point is, did Art have one of those portable oxygen tanks?  You know, those small canisters that you see people wearing in the grocery stores, etc.?  That would have certainly helped him in the initial stages of the disease, and yet he wasn't wearing one in the drone videos.  He certainly could have afforded a top of the line model.  I have seen some products that claim the following:

THE BENEFITS OF PORTABLE OXYGEN FOR COPD & OXYGEN THERAPY
Oxygen provides many benefits, and now with portable oxygen concentrators, you can reclaim your freedom and independence.
Increases Survival
Improves Exercise Tolerance
Improves Mental Alertness
Get Better Sleep
Improves Mood
Increases Stamina
Travel Where You Want, Why You Want.

I'm just wondering if Art went through the oxygen regimen.  Just another facet to ponder, I reckon.

I find the fact he responded and then acted like he was unsure if you were suggesting he faked it proof enough in my mind that he faked it, LOL. Like he hadn't thought of that?

In the off chance it was real (<1%) Art was setting him up with something that would appear to be phony under the circumstances that Jimmy will never let down.

With the constant pain he was in, getting worse all the time, struggling to breathe as Dannion said, he was suffering a slow, excruciating death. What was the point in continuing? It's not hard to imagine Art saying "That's enough" and taking that drug combo and going to sleep, knowing he would never wake up. And if that's what he did, I don't blame him at all.
Think Mr. Schrader should edit into his anti-suicide pitch a disclaimer like, "...unless you're in the late Mr. Bell's situation..."?

One thing that confused me, though, was the timing of the sequence of finding a replacement m.c. for Art on MITD; it sounded like that was in the works well before the night of the shooting, and the revelation of his "I'm shot" joke even suggested a kind of rehearsal for such a hoax.  Has Keith said anything that would confirm that the shooter-stalker scenario (from cut cable to shootings) was made up?  Like maybe something was said in the 3-hour tribute show that preceded this bonus?

Keith didn't imply that the stalker was a hoax at all.  In fact he mentioned someone who he thought was that person, a local in Pahrump that wanted Art to advertise his product on MITD, but Art refused since he believed it was junk so that angered the guy.

Just heard Ian Punnett's bit from the "Art Bell Final Sendoff Show".
What an absolute muppet. The segment suddenly became about him and how much Alan Corbeth influenced him.
I was surprised Ian was able to talk with his tongue so far up Corbeth's butt. He was so giddy.
One needs to cleanse oneself by going through a decontamination chamber at the CDC after allowing auditory waves from Ian's vocal chords get processed by their ears. It is greasy.

I liked Ian when he first started guest-hosting on C2C in the early 00s I think. He seemed original, had some fresh content and angles for the show, was a change of pace and didn't copy Art, which was good. But after a few years he just wore me down with his too-cool-for-school type approach, laughing at his own remarks and one-liners, getting combative with guests he didn't agree with rather than let them present their topic/research, and he just seemed to get sillier and sillier in his approach. I'm all for switching it up and having fun with the show from time to time, a walk on the lighter side, but Ian just became a caricature of himself IMO.

Church has never grown on me. His cadence and the sound of his voice make me feel like he's trying to sell me snake oil. And I hate how he spends the first 10 minutes of his show telling the audience how well he knows his guest, like he's part of the in-crowd and tight with everyone when all he's doing is hanging out with them at a conference. And if they are actually close friends, just say "we're close friends" and be done with it. No need to give us a life history of the friendship.

Schrader is galaxies better than those two.

I would be remiss if I didn't applaud Ian for the shows he did about the Smiley Face Killer and the D.B. Cooper case. I really enjoyed those shows, very interesting and thought-provoking. They were right in the same vein as Knappy's David Paulides shows. Wish Ian would ditch the cartoon-character act and go back to that style because he was much better then.

I liked Ian when he first started guest-hosting on C2C in the early 00s I think. He seemed original, had some fresh content and angles for the show, was a change of pace and didn't copy Art, which was good. But after a few years he just wore me down with his too-cool-for-school type approach, laughing at his own remarks and one-liners, getting combative with guests he didn't agree with rather than let them present their topic/research, and he just seemed to get sillier and sillier in his approach. I'm all for switching it up and having fun with the show from time to time, a walk on the lighter side, but Ian just became a caricature of himself IMO...

I really liked Ian.  He was a good host, and a lot of the time covered some good topics that no one else really did.  He had some slightly annoying quirks - smug, smarmy, an elitist wannabe, terrible sense of humor - especially with the bad puns, pretending to be a Christian while distancing himself from Christianity, always had to have the last word, and so on.  But it was with a light touch and not overly irritating.

For me it all seemed to turn when he was forced to apologize on air to that Steve Quayle idiot after arguing with him about what the show topic was going to be.  After that Ian seemed worse, like he either didn't care or at least wasn't going to bother limiting his asshattedness.  His little quirks became major impediments to the enjoyment of his show.  As a host he changed, turned into a raging jerk.  Still is

Until he decided to be George Noory’s fill-in host, he cut the ties with us. Contrary to Jimmy saying he spoke with Art everyday, the only time Jimmy and Art spoke is when I conferenced them together and they argued about Jimmy going on C2C. Art hated Premiere, as soon as Jimmy showed any interest is C2C and GN, they never spoke again, AFAIK.

This oujia board stunt is just showing another attempt at sucking up to Art’s fans.

Totally agree with all of this. He jumped the shark for me with his Zombie Apocalypse show that was in the mold of War of the Worlds. Don't remember if that came before or after the Quayle fiasco. I actually never heard that Quayle show because, by then, I had determined that Quayle was either batshit nuts, a pathological liar, or both. Certainly not listenable for a show. The hell of it is, I used to like Quayle when he talked about the terrorism stuff back in the day. But he strayed from that and got into -- and stayed in -- padded room territory. I remember on one of Art's interviews after he left MITD when he said that many guests would feel like they had to continually outdo themselves each time they were on. Quayle was certainly one of them. Don't remember if he was ever on with Art, but Quayle went completely off the rails. Noory has pretty much stopped having him on from what I can tell.

When Ian decides to get serious and do a big-boy show, he still has some chops. But that's rare. More often we get the smug, elitist, unfunny version of Ian. Can't tell if he's doing it on purpose or just morphed into it naturally. Do we know if he's going to stay as a fill-in host once he starts teaching at K-State in the fall?

Glad to do the 4th hour, and could have done a 5th. So some day I could talk about more about Art and the behind the scenes business of running this show.

However I covered most of the issues, maybe not in a complete way, but hopefully enough to express the happenings behind the scenes.

I really want to fade back into the background and help Dave carry the show into the future.

Keith didn't imply that the stalker was a hoax at all.  In fact he mentioned someone who he thought was that person, a local in Pahrump that wanted Art to advertise his product on MITD, but Art refused since he believed it was junk so that angered the guy.
That fits with what Karen had said when Dave interviewed her after Art died and she mentioned some crazy guy also hanging around the station giving her trouble.
Huh!  I'd've thought that Art would've loved to tell that story, just leaving out the name.

But now, just  few months after I'd finally decided it was a hoax, you've given me something to make me doubt my doubt.

Lol don't knock your own preferences. To each his own, those were just my humble opinions according to my own tastes. Sometimes I question my taste because other than the GIS, my favorite guest of Art's was always Ed Dames. He's been vilified on BG/EG as a charlatan, and he may be, but the way Art handled him and those interviews was extraordinary. Great radio. I always thought, what if this guy isn't full of shit? What if he's right and all -- or even some -- of this stuff comes to pass? I always thought the chemistry between Art and Ed made for some really good shows. But then, that could be my bad taste ;)

An autopsy is not generally necessary when the death is known to be the result of known medical conditions/diseases. Lt.

In Nevada, an autopsy is required unless you are directly under the care of a physician at the time of death - such as being a patient in a hospital. Being sick and under a doctor’s care is not sufficient.

HUGE NEWS! Connie Willis, weekend host on Coast2Coast, has a filmmaker guest on tonight who has been documenting the life of 'Robert', a 38 year old man from the Netherlands with a powerful connection to the spirit world, an intuitive/medium, a contactee, crop circle expert- amazing shit happens to this man every day, the filmmaker assures that Robert is for real as he's been an eyewitness to things. WOW! So the big news is Robert visited a radio host in the UK, like the Dave Snoory of England, and Robert carries a camera with him, that's what makes Robert different than your average intuitive/medium, he documents his experiences with a camera. So while meeting the radio host Robert had his camera and caught something truly incredible in the camera - 6 images of a famous deceased person, I thought he was going to say a king or queen of England, or Arthur Conan Doyle, John Lennon or Benny Hill, being England and all, but no - the face staring back at him in that camera was Art freaking Bell!!! Blew Connie's steel trap of a mind - gobsmacked she was, she could only stammer out 'Gee I hope I don't end up in Robert's camera any time soon!' and then giggled girlishly as Connie is want to do.

Of course Connie who is Dave with a vagina, an imbecile, never even asked where we could see these images of Art's ghost.

Thank you for posting that video. Made me tear up a bit.
Every time I run across this video, I watch it. The magnificent expanse and desolation gets me every time.
I get why Art loved it out there. I'm unsure what time of day he shot this, (I suspect early morning), but other than the two cars
moving down the highway, it was absolutely still. Imagine standing there, with all that nothingness around you, looking into that
endless sky, and no noise at all. (except for the whine of the drone). At some point, long ago, that entire area was under water.
More than likely it will be again, some day. But for now, it is a place that many find peaceful. I think all Art wanted was to be left
alone to do his thing. With all of his wild days behind him, the man simply wanted solace, and a place to be with his loved ones,
and a few close friends. I cannot fault him for that. At the end of the day, isn't that what we all want?

Take that from a lass who was never told WHY the aging,wheezy, and old decrepit creepy pervert sold his house to or anointed Heater Wad with the microphone oil in the first place.
Seems he , being the swinger that he was, had many a secret skelly in his closet that he paid no mind to let others know about.
Reckon he ever told Airyn why he did these things as well?

Something very, very strange is amiss here and methinks the Artster was playing hide the ciggy with Wad for more than a few years. ;)
Alas never forget this fact : ART BELL FORCED HEATER WAD UPON HIS FAMILY !!!
If Karen , Airyn and the kids need to blame ANYONE for this mess they are in now, they can look to ART for moving that old barfly hag RIGHT IN NEXT DOOR and also RIGHT IN TO THEIR LIVES!!!

There is a mega torrent that can be downloaded but I don’t have a link. There is also a website somewhere that has many of his shows organized by year. Search for sitarchive.

A question was asked at the other place many years ago about how many shows Art did. If memory serves it came to 1900 +, actually closer to 2000 including Coast and Dreamland.  I've often wondered which one of us super-fans has the largest library. The one mega torrent of 2013 was over 60 GB's amounting to just over 1300 files (some of them were only segments, about 100ish). A few were folders containing After Dark stuff and xtra's but I believe 1306 was the number of broadcasts not counting folders. There are about 15 repeats but still, it's a whopper of a library to have.  I have that one but before that I had
a collection of just over 600 full shows that I collected from 98 - 06 from various platforms as well as recording from my local AM station before it died. Adding my 600 library to the mega torrent was great as most of my 600+ were not doubles or same shows that were found in the mega T. Jazmunda talked about being a "collector" I wonder if he has more than me. I have 1744 shows ranging from 3-5 hours.  How do I share 110 GB's?

I miss local AM radio with local guys talking about the way things used to be and how the world is sooo heading in the wrong direction.

That's a key point to make. When corporate radio came in and bought out local stations they inserted their own talent and spin. Local AM radio became a place where you could sell commercials but not hire local talent. That pretty much made local radio the equivalent of a rural UHF TV station translator, just a rebroadcasting resource, not an actual community asset. Things have been worse ever since.

I have the 60gb collection. I think that’s possibly the one the streams use. You should maybe torrent the extra 600 as an extra different mega as most people have the 60gb one? I’d definitely be interested in getting hold of those!

App is available for Android and Apple. And you'll find dozens of paranormal program streams including the DMDN. This gets you out of any tenuous torrent sharing legalities. :-X

I should have beena bit more clear. You would have to have acess to the MitD archives.  I'm a subscriber so I guess that limits who can listen.

No, my bad for not focusing on the MITD aspect. I have many of those archived from when I subscribed, but what do you think of using the paranormal app? This could expand out to other podcasts as well, as we'd all be real time. :)

im sure @KRowland  would dissaprove of this (as it requires 1 person streaming it to every other person), if you were actually listening to an episode as a group.
if each user was listening to their copy they got by being a member , timing would be impossible.
