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.

LOL Snoory at his obtuse best. 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?

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!

As we know, the shows themselves belong to Premrat.  When MW interviewed Noory he said the tapes were at the studio, kept loose and randomly in drawers and cabinets, and then promised to gather them up, digitize them, and make them available.  Of course nothing's been done.  At some point no doubt what hasn't already been lost will be thrown away.

There's always the much touted Ultimate Art Bell compilation torrent, 62 gigs of it.

Audio quality allegedly varies but is acceptable ftmp.

Or one can lurk the daily stream and record away:

The description says,"a total of 1337 shows from December 1992 until November 2013" and it has extras like an audio book of "The Art of Talk", After Dark newsletters from 1995, some Phil Hendrie parodies of Art and so on.

Bart prefers no links on this one due to copyright violation, so how you search it out is up to you. :-X

Too bad it isn't for sale. I'd buy it.

As would I. But you can still stream Art all day and night on tunein or the very useful and diverse Paranormal Radio App:

visitors can't see pics , please register or login


It's available in the Googoo Play store as well as for Apple. There are a few dozen streamed programs, Clyde Lewis's being one of the better ones.

There's always the much touted Ultimate Art Bell compilation torrent, 62 gigs of it.

Audio quality allegedly varies but is acceptable ftmp.

Or one can lurk the daily stream and record away:

Jazmunda (and others) have said the show collectors are missing quite a few.  Also, some of the shows they have are missing segments, the final hour, etc.  Apparently every once in awhile a Somewhere in Time broadcast is one they didn't have.

I'd guess there are more out there that people have, since for awhile back in the 90s Art was selling tapes of the shows, and some of those must still be around (not every one was reading BellGab, and people may not know others are looking for what they have).

I've never listened to an Art Bell show other than live (except for a few I recorded on the C Crane Versa-corder.  Before that pos broke).

So there are a zillion shows I have to look forward to sometime.  I've mostly had my fill of the paranormal though, his guests pretty much convinced me it's all BS (right, Hoagie?)

Thanks for the link for the Art Bell shows. Most of my life, I worked night shift. I could not listen to AB while at work. However, on my nights off, I was still a night person. My routine was in place. Stay up all night and sleep during the day. Listen to Art during the night.

I recently received my new C Crane radio. I enjoy having an AM FM radio in my kitchen. I listen to talk radio. Both local and national shows. Mark Levin and I have been doing the dishes in my kitchen for many years. I am lucky to have a few college radios stations that plays music. Paranormal radio bores me. Back in the 90's, I enjoyed listening to Art Bell live. Since his death, I have gone back to listening to Art Bell's old shows.

@26 horses maybe you could help me find my favorite Art Bell Show. Art Bell's interview with Dr Fred Bell (great nephew of Alexander Graham Bell) was the best. The topic was about possibility of Time Travel. Also, Dr Fred Bell talked about his time spent with the Moody Blues. Dr Bell talked on how music changes your brain and could heal you. I love hearing about Time Travel. I love music. So this show hit home with me. This show was on YouTube a few years ago. It is now gone :(

Whenever it was possible we subscribed and downloaded. Before that we had a C-crane radio that would record. My husband and I would listen the next evening or on the weekend. It was really great, we were just talking about that time in our lives.  What did you do when you moved to day shift?

@starman , most of us in EllGab had our start in the old country. I have a different name in the old country. I rarely post in the old country. I am a small fry over there. I am not tough enough to hang out with the big boys. Or maybe I don’t want that type of interaction.
Being an Art Bell fan was reason I joined a “Social Media Forum”.  I joined the old country January 2013. After Art Bell's passing, I wanted more information regarding his death. I traveled back to the old county and ended up in the HW thread. Suddenly that forum shut down. Thanks to Bart Ell we have EllGab. I am also thankful for THE BARTCAST EPISODE 6 – KAREN JACKSON, AIRYN BELL.  Most of my questions about Art Bell's final days were answered. Yet, I remained in the HW thread. WHY?
During the summer, I had injured my foot. I was still employed before my injury. My better half is a retiree. Now I had an injury that require a bone stimulator. I had to wear that device on my foot for 10 hours a day. In November, my foot healed. During that time, my mind healed as well. My job had a very high potential for being harmed. I realized that it was time for me to resign from my job before, I was truly injured.  Hence EllGab filled a void in my life. In the HW thread, there are so many really smart people. I truly “like” so many of our members. I enjoyed all the clever comments.
As I was lament the passing of Art Bell, I realized that I was in the wrong thread. The HW thread has been hijacked. It started to feel like the old country to me. That one vs Parry—The Fisher King was my get out of town signal. I decided that it was time for me to take a stroll around EllGab.
It was sad for me to realize that the HW thread has 6250 pages and this thread has 28 pages.

Again, I thank @Bart Ell , @wr250 for the tech stuff. @ponyboysunset and @DynamoHum  for being so brave for hosting.

This is an excellent summary. My story is not all that different overall. I got on bellgab for about a month before it shut down, looking for info about what was going to happen to the show since miss missy was AWOL. I had seen Bart's twitter and joined up to Ellgab when it appeared. Same name. I decided to participate and forced myself to post despite having no idea what I was doing with the forum app. In comparison bellgab posters seem to bite an nip at each other a bit. Glad you got out of the job before you got hurt further. People in the other thread are smart and funny, but yes it has been hijacked and is no longer funny. No prob, lots of other places to go.

Hi Fish. I'm glad to hear your on the mend. Our health is indeed most precious.

Yes this "is it". I am no longer subscript to C2C. This interview was available on YouTube. It is gone!. I wonder if it is due to Dr. Fred Bell's mysterious death.
Dr. Fred Bell died on September 25, 2011, within hours after Jesse Ventura interviewed him for the program Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura
It certainly is another of those pesky "coincidences"... :o

I've never listened to an Art Bell show other than live (except for a few I recorded on the C Crane Versa-corder.  Before that pos broke).

So there are a zillion shows I have to look forward to sometime.  I've mostly had my fill of the paranormal though, his guests pretty much convinced me it's all BS (right, Hoagie?)
But it was fun having it on in the background while doing something else and laughing at some of the claims his guests were reporting. Satellites in orbit that can get a picture down to several meters with infer red, night vision, and FLIR heat recording capabilities and still no Bigfoot selfies. Oh well. I guess I'll have to rely on some guy out hunting rabbit to get us an eyes on Bigfoot count that technology can't. :)

There's something about shared experience, in this case knowing there were millions of others listening at the same time, or perhaps it's the idea that the show is live and they won't be rebroadcasting it.  Going back and listening now wouldn't be the same.

Mine was just the reverse, listen to Art streaming on Realplayer during the workday - my favorite show was Sunday night's Dreamland.

Did you ever listen to the Laura Lee program?

I've not heard of Laura Lee, she good?

Very true. I think your on to something here PB. But I do enjoy the replays. I sometimes catch a broadcast I missed along the way for one reason or another. A couple stand out for me that I found interesting. 1. Johnathan Reed and The Alien in the freezer. (Quite the tail with many characters and twists). 2.Someone used several power company high voltage transformers left at the side of the road to construct a time machine. (The guest walked the walk and talked some pretty good tech stuff in his claim). 3. Ghost to Ghost on Halloween. (Nothing better than ghost stories being told live on air while waiting to hand out treats to little ghost and goblins ringing your doorbell).

Hello @damon , I listen to Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin on AM radio-lots of commercials. In between Rush and Mark, I listen to one of the college radio FM stations -almost no commercials. I try to walk the line between conservatism and progressivism.

They were good, I don't listen anymore because the subjects don't make my happy.   :)

Art knew how to do radio and really make it the "theater of the mind." Even when he was ornery "turn off the radio" or hang-up on a caller who dialed the wrong line it was epic. But more so when he "got" whatever point the guest, or caller, made.

He listened. "oh. oooh" when the big point was realized by him was epic.

And payed attention and not repeating same questions to same guest or using the same boiler-plate questions. And would go off topic or down a tangent when appropriate.  I think his claim of not reading the material of guest was a good option also. Allowed guest to explain the topic and be "new" to us listeners and him and so he would ask questions listeners would. Thought there surely were some set-ups etc who cares? Great radio often is and I listened/listen not, usually, for information but entertainment. And live, late at night, driving or even setting at home on radio: magic in the static.

I don't know about the whole karma thing but thanks. I recall driving to Vegas with friends and introducing them to Art over beers and long road trip there (kids don't do this) and the late night on the way to Vegas and they were mesmerized. "Who IS this guy?" "What the HELL?" A perfect storm: in the desert, middle of nowhere, listening on AM which would break-up a bit and I'd manually tune back in (old "dual knobby" car radio) and some crazy spooky topic and an electric storm. Was awesome. Better than Vegas was in recollection.

Better than Vegas! Somewhere in time, my employer offered to send my supervisor and me to a conference in Vegas. My supervisor asked if I would teach her how to play casino craps while in Vegas. She only knew how to play street craps. I could not wait to listen to Art Bell live from Pahrump. I was only an hour’s drive away from “Things That Go Pahrump in the Night.” I don't remember what Art Bell shows were playing while I was in Vegas. I remember being almost star stuck hearing Art Bell’s thunder clap sound while I was so close by. “Magic in the static”. My home was/is over 2,500 miles away from Pahrump.
Back to the conference. I had trouble staying awake. As I would be falling asleep, my supervisor would stab me with her pencil. In my defense, the speakers were some hippies from California. I do not dislike hippies. However these hippies were too far out for me.
Back to the casino. My supervisor learned how to play casino craps. Standing at a crap’s table, one of the players took some cash from out of his shoe. My supervisor stopped playing craps. She whispered to me “I am not playing with someone who is using his shoe money.”  I knew that she understood the psyche of a craps table. You only play craps with people who are not desperate for cash, either in a casino or in the streets.

Going back to listen is not the same. I listen to Art Bell’s old shows. For me it is like looking at my old family photos. At times, I am able to recall the moments. However it was not the same as living the moment.
I remember listening to the live shows. There were times, I would wonder how many people are listening. It was part of the psychic of listening to his live show. I was part of a very large group. We did not have easy access reaching Art Bell. We had fax machines, emails, AOL chat rooms and home phones. I would go into AOL's Grassy Knoll chat room, looking for Art. There was room for mystery about Art Bell.

I think it worked out better when there was some mystery about the entertainer in question, whether that was Art Bell, ballplayers, or Hollywood folks.  I sure liked sports a lot better when the only time we heard from the athletes was a few minutes in an interview after the game.

My mother lives in Las Vegas. My father liked to play blackjack, while my mother preferred to play the poker machines. I don't like gambling, so I'd just watch. Casinos are interesting places, lots of good people watching. Now the machines are all electronic, winnings are added to cards as opposed to falling loudly out of the machine, which added to the whole casino thing if you ask me. Kinda sad.

Casinos would "shut down" and the money train would come to empty out the machines. My hands would be get so dirty from the coins. Casinos would set aside 2 hours for free craps classes. Baccarat lessons were every 15 minutes.

But that's functionally no different than the dearth of apparent imagery of UFOs, is it? So what are we left with, massive holographic manipulations, stacked dimensions of varying solidity, or could it be that the "powers that be" have a real tight hold on their own death star technology?

I can confirm as much, there was a palpable element of the shared unknown, like an unboxing done somewhere out there and then told to us around a virtual campfire.

You listen to reruns of Art, and they are simply reruns. The magic has occurred and is gone.

But maybe the same is true for old time radio and we just need to let Art's programs age into cognac, not just brandy.

I’ve been going to Vegas since 2000, the tail end of the coin era. The smell fo coins is an odd smell, but it reminds me of Vegas. I used to collect the coin buckets and bring them home. I used to love plopping a bucket full of coins into a hopper to get them changed up or taking the bucket to the cage! Bellagio used to give away very elegant gloves you could wear so your hands didn’t get dirty.

Because of the jet lag and my extreme excitement my first few days in vegas would start at around 3am - this is the time they empty all the machines of bills and the quietest time in the casino. I love that time, it’s and i can wander around with no crowds.

I’d always ring home about 4 am - midday at home. We always stay downtown I knew exactly where all the webcams and traffic cams were downtown, and I would often ring hom tell them which cam to bring up, get off the line, go wave for 5 minutes then ring them back!

Not been for a few years, I miss downtown!

I had no idea there was a money train or classes. That is a great idea. My last few visits did not include casinos, too much health business to take care of.  :P
During the time coins were used for slot machines they would empty the machines around 4 am. A money train and security would come out to empty the machines. That was my time to leave the casino.

Yes, right in my little side table here.
It's kind of fun opening up the old Art websites and seeing where Keith's web skills were at the time.

Suffice to say, the game has moved way on in all manners.

But as a memory ride - amazing. Some of this should find its way into the Art Bell memorial podcasts, imo.

I’ve been going to Vegas since 2000, the tail end of the coin era. The smell fo coins is an odd smell, but it reminds me of Vegas. I used to collect the coin buckets and bring them home. I used to love plopping a bucket full of coins into a hopper to get them changed up or taking the bucket to the cage! Bellagio used to give away very elegant gloves you could wear so your hands didn’t get dirty.

Because of the jet lag and my extreme excitement my first few days in vegas would start at around 3am - this is the time they empty all the machines of bills and the quietest time in the casino. I love that time, it’s and i can wander around with no crowds.

I’d always ring home about 4 am - midday at home. We always stay downtown I knew exactly where all the webcams and traffic cams were downtown, and I would often ring hom tell them which cam to bring up, get off the line, go wave for 5 minutes then ring them back!

Not been for a few years, I miss downtown!

I liked keeping the coin buckets too. Never thought about the cams though. Now we can skpe or video hangouts. I do notice the traffic is crazy now in Vegas, so crowded everywhere.

But that's functionally no different than the dearth of apparent imagery of UFOs, is it? So what are we left with, massive holographic manipulations, stacked dimensions of varying solidity, or could it be that the "powers that be" have a real tight hold on their own death star technology?

Once I retire I'll be able to go to some of the places I've heard about where odd things happen. That'd be fun.

And live, late at night, driving or even setting at home on radio: magic in the static.
Art was to talk radio what Wolfman Jack was to spinning the wax.

Used to listen to him on XERF from Mejico - you could drive the entire border and never lose his signal - and you talk about magic in the ether - wow.

I don't know about the whole karma thing but thanks. I recall driving to Vegas with friends and introducing them to Art over beers and long road trip there (kids don't do this) and the late night on the way to Vegas and they were mesmerized. "Who IS this guy?" "What the HELL?" A perfect storm: in the desert, middle of nowhere, listening on AM which would break-up a bit and I'd manually tune back in (old "dual knobby" car radio) and some crazy spooky topic and an electric storm. Was awesome. Better than Vegas was in recollection.

Absolutely @PB . No wonder no one wants to watch the Academy Awards. I use to like De Niro's movies.

"Casino" one of the greatest flicks ever, but do I want to know that Ace was played by a common egomaniac who beats people up for parking spaces?

I think it worked out better when there was some mystery about the entertainer in question, whether that was Art Bell, ballplayers, or Hollywood folks.  I sure liked sports a lot better when the only time we heard from the athletes was a few minutes in an interview after the game.
Athletes have nothing more to say to me that actors - play your game, save the monologues for your friends and family.

My mother lives in Las Vegas. My father liked to play blackjack, while my mother preferred to play the poker machines. I don't like gambling, so I'd just watch. Casinos are interesting places, lots of good people watching. Now the machines are all electronic, winnings are added to cards as opposed to falling loudly out of the machine, which added to the whole casino thing if you ask me. Kinda sad.

Oh man, it's been so long that the last time I casino'd they still had nickel slots and little cardboard tubs for the winnings - carbon date me.

@DynamoHum , YES! Filling up those buckets would be so exciting. I would cash in my coins and take my cash to the craps table.  So many "cowboys" were superstitious at the crap's table. As I laid my cash down for change at the craps table some players would pick up their chips. They were not going to play at a table with a female at the table. Let alone a redheaded female. As I would roll the dice and make my point, players would come back to the table. The best place to play craps was at Binion's Gambling Hall. However, you better know the odds on a win.

I haven't heard of Binion's. My parents then and my mother now don't go to the large casinos on the strip. They like the smaller ones.

@anniem , I have not been to Vegas for a few years.  Binion's was the place for cowboys and cowgirls. It is located on Fremont Street. I still play craps in Atlantic City NJ. The young players do not understand how to play the psych of this game, let alone the odds. Females are no longer considered bad luck at the tables. A good craps player studies the table before cashing in for chips. I look for a shooter who is wearing diamond rings. Actually I am look for a Tony Soprano that is throwing the dice. Will not play with someone who is using their shoe money.

I was alive and well when the casinos arrived in Atlantic City, but never visited them. We'd go further south to the beach. As a kid my parents had a friend who had a house in Bay Head, I have such lovely memories of that place.
You must do well at the craps tables, you sound as if you know your stuff.
Tony Soprano, that brings up a perfect image of what you are talking about. Did you watch it? When I was around 15 we had a nutty teacher for Italian in HS. He wanted to have lunch with a lady in Little Italy in NY so he created a "field trip" and took the whole class. When the bus arrived he opened the door and said "Be back at 4. Have an Italian lunch" and let us all go completely unsupervised. I wandered around the whole day and I recall seeing some Tony Sopranos hanging around some doorways. None of us had enough money to buy a restaurant lunch, but we had a good time site seeing.

Your teacher was crazy. He was lucky. All his students came back by 4! What a story. Great fun for the young to discover NYC.
As for the Tony Sopranos in real life, money follows money-sometimes.
Sometimes, I am a very good craps player. I need motivation to win. Long story short. Mr Fish lost too much money at a craps table. I was so pissed off!. I suggested to Mr Fish to go get more money. I was going to throw the dice! Not only did Mr Fish win back his money but also we both won "more" money.

I love stories of those who win there. I am not part of that sort of story. That is because I only very reluctantly will surrender my money and only do so in a very small tiny amount which does not take more than 10 minutes to lose. I think it takes more time to win.  ;D

The legenadry Frontier was host to "The Laydown Lowdon" nightly sports book show on KDWN with the local legend Lee Pete and his able assistant Donny Bader.

https://www.gamingtoday.com/industry/article/25123-Lee_Pete_dies

"We all just loved Lee Pete," said a former waitress from the old Rainbow Lounge, one of Pete’s hangouts when he lived in Las Vegas. "He was so charming with all that silver hair and pleasing personality."

Indeed, Pete was the toast of the town, a radio host who got 10,000 letters a year, who earned an income well into six figures, and who was once described by the sports talk fraternity as a scaled-down answer to Phil Donahue.

Standing about 6-foot-2 and weighing 220 pounds, it was obvious Pete was an ex-football player. During the late 1940s, he was a standout quarterback at the University of Toledo, where he lettered four times and once finished second nationally in total offense to Charley Connerly, the Mississippi All-American who later became an all-star with the New York Giants.

Pete was also a solid college baseball player, and once led the nation in batting.

After graduation, Pete was drafted by the Detroit Lions and traded to the Green Bay Packers. In his first season, he ripped up his knee in an exhibition game and was out for the season. The following year he broke his shoulder, which put an end to his playing career.

With his playing days behind him, Pete bought a saloon from a friend in Toledo. He soon tripled the business, expanded it and bought another one. Later he opened a successful restaurant in his home town.

One of the principals was the late Roy Walford, a dietary scientist, insane caloric restriction guy, but also a renowned and banned roulette counter in Reno.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roy_Walford

Walford is credited with significantly furthering aging research by his discovery that laboratory mice, when fed a diet that restricted their caloric intake by 50% yet maintaining nutritional requirements, almost doubled their expected life span.

Roulette winnings
In 1947, while on vacation during medical school, Walford and Albert Hibbs, a mathematics graduate student, used statistical analysis of biased roulette wheels to "break the bank" in Reno. They tracked the results of the spins, determined which wheels were biased, and then bet heavily on the ones which were unbalanced. The casinos eventually realized that Walford and his friend knew what they were doing and threw them out. A Life Magazine photographer captured the pair drinking milk and counting their chips in a photograph published in the December 8, 1947 issue. Their methods were also mentioned in the roulette book The Eudaemonic Pie by Thomas Bass. Different sources have the pair winning anywhere from $6,500[3] to $42,000. The high end is more likely, as Walford was reputed to have paid for part of his medical school education and a house from his winnings. The pair also bought a yacht and sailed the Caribbean for over a year.

Biosphere 2
Walford was one of the eight “crew members” who were sealed inside Biosphere 2 where they lived from September 26, 1991 to September 26, 1993. Walford served as the crew's physician. During his stay in Biosphere 2, the crew found that they could not grow as much food as anticipated, so Walford convinced the crew to follow his calorie restriction diet. It is claimed that this action “produced dramatic weight loss and improved health.”Despite this, in November of the first year the crew decided to open a cache of emergency food supplies grown outside of the bubble to supplement their meager diets.
Caloric restriction and ALS

Walford's death from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) has provoked consideration about whether his practice of caloric restriction (CR) may have contributed to, or accelerated, his development of the disease.

Walford himself speculated that his disease may have been caused by the combination of chronic hypoxia and exposure to carbon monoxide and nitrous oxide in Biosphere 2.

Absolutely @PB . No wonder no one wants to watch the Academy Awards. I use to like De Niro's movies.

Fast forward to now where if the football team owners want the players to show respect and not drive fans away, well, there must be something wrong with them (the owners)

Exactly what I say. Those quotes! Today I posted there to him the way he posts to people. He loves attention, so I gave him some. I can't say any of it was fun though, not like how it was before the hijack.

Hi, @anniem, I'm just dipping in to this thread as I get caught up after a very busy and intense few days.  ;)

I was at first surprised at how you were posting towards him, but then really glad, and gave you +1's several times when I could. Good for you!

I really do wish that everyone would just totally ignore him as if he didn't exist and didn't post, he'd go away eventually for lack of attention. I know he won't do that, but secretly I wish Bart would just put him in the zoo permanently, the stink he leaves here with every post belongs there.

What does "spinning the wax" mean?

Seriously? This has probably been answered, but it's reference to early records, made from wax discs by Edison. It means spinning the vinyl LP's, pre-CD's and pre-mp3's. Just in case it hasn't been answered.

I listened to Wolfman Jack too, once we could get his signal in NYC. +1

Did you ever go across the pedestrian bridge over to Main Street Station? They have a Hall Of Fame for record craps sessions all along the walls of the bridge ... one guy went for like 200 odd rolls!

I never managed to master craps, my dyscalculia kills me with it.

I did win a number of poker tourneys at Billions, they used to give out T-shirts that said you won a tourney there! The coffee shop at Binions was fabulous!

I am not good at craps, either, but several times I have won nicely at the harness track or regular horse racing track. What's my formula? I bet on the horse who is wearing the silk colors that I like the best for that race, especially if it looks good on that color horse. If the silks don't to it, then I just bet on the horse I like looking at. Nothing whatsoever to do with knowing anything at all about the horses.  8)

Once at Saratoga in upstate NY a woman got reallly angry at me and started cursing at me because I had just won the trifecta (three races in a row), and then a win, place, and show combination on the next race. I don't remember how much I won, they were all $2 bets, but it was a lot for the day. She asked me what my formula was for picking the hourses. I told her the truth about picking the horses based on the colors of the silks or the look of the horses and she got really mad at me, accusing me of lying and being secretive about my methods. She got even madder when I laughed, because I was in fact telling the truth. Go figure!  ;)

@starman , most of us in EllGab had our start in the old country. I have a different name in the old country. I rarely post in the old country. I am a small fry over there. I am not tough enough to hang out with the big boys. Or maybe I don’t want that type of interaction.
Being an Art Bell fan was reason I joined a “Social Media Forum”.  I joined the old country January 2013. After Art Bell's passing, I wanted more information regarding his death. I traveled back to the old county and ended up in the HW thread. Suddenly that forum shut down. Thanks to Bart Ell we have EllGab. I am also thankful for THE BARTCAST EPISODE 6 – KAREN JACKSON, AIRYN BELL.  Most of my questions about Art Bell's final days were answered. Yet, I remained in the HW thread. WHY?
During the summer, I had injured my foot. I was still employed before my injury. My better half is a retiree. Now I had an injury that require a bone stimulator. I had to wear that device on my foot for 10 hours a day. In November, my foot healed. During that time, my mind healed as well. My job had a very high potential for being harmed. I realized that it was time for me to resign from my job before, I was truly injured.  Hence EllGab filled a void in my life. In the HW thread, there are so many really smart people. I truly “like” so many of our members. I enjoyed all the clever comments.
As I was lament the passing of Art Bell, I realized that I was in the wrong thread. The HW thread has been hijacked. It started to feel like the old country to me. That one vs Parry—The Fisher King was my get out of town signal. I decided that it was time for me to take a stroll around EllGab.
It was sad for me to realize that the HW thread has 6250 pages and this thread has 28 pages.

Again, I thank @Bart Ell , @wr250 for the tech stuff. @ponyboysunset and @DynamoHum  for being so brave for hosting.

Posting in the other thread did let me see that mentioning a person who recently traveled seems to affect the person who is the main focus of that thread now. Overall, it wasn't fun, other people do not want the travel guy mentioned and doing those posts added to the hijack. So whatever, this is better.
I wouldn't go to Bellgab and tell them I don't like how they post there, I won't do that on the other thread. You are 100% correct, if not answered, ignored, he'd not be getting what he seeks. Here I really hope should anything change here that no one responds.

In the dark of the night, Art Bell was a light left on for the lonely, the insomniacs and the curious. Who is Art Bell's legacy? I looked up the definition of legacy.

@PB , I was employed by a large teaching university teaching hospital. While on the job, I formed friendships with many people with different beliefs and back grounds. I would often try to stay on the topic of food. The topic of food does not divide people. I do not stereotype people. However, I did see a pattern within the age groups. The role of religion is changing. So many people who are forty years old and younger view having a religious view as foolish. They are quick to point out that religion was the cause for the wars in our history.

@anniem , holy cow! You are here. I thought you would be "on the job" by this time.  Are you still chilly?

I was! I'm on PST and my shift starts at 6 am. I was on the train when I posted. I don't always post on there because the screen is so small and it is easy to miss messages and mistype.
The chillyness went away once I got away from the station near home, there are fields near and it was breezy. Once in town the buildings block the breeze and it was ok. My hands got cold walking in so I pulled them into my sleeve and was fine.

I adore Monty Python.
It was on the PBS station when I was a kid, and we watched them each week. One episode had them in a boat and they decided they would have to devour parts of each other to survive. In comes my grandmother to visit, wanted to see what we were up to and we had her sit down and watch with us.  She was FURIOUS that my mother would let us watch such awful stuff. Luckily, my mother didn't mind it.

Ah, found it.

I can recall the specifics.
On March 26th she posted screen shots from Facebook Messenger and informed everyone that he was now blocked (for the third time!).
How can a blocked person then wake her up by sending messages 2 weeks later?
Ms. Angie needs to come clean and admit to the class that she loves the drama.

I'm sorry for the confusion.  I was referring to the image below.  I don't know how the message was sent to her or the nature of the block.  Here is ignore, not block, so I just can't speak to specifics.

Art Bell...wow. I discovered Art in 93 . I have so many wonderful memories. He was the friend who hung out in Splendora Texas and just made me happy.
I love this thread. Lets celebrate Art. I have so many friends on Ellgab . I have enjoyed hanging out with yall and I am hoping for many more yrs to come.
We all loved Art...Coast to Coast, Sirius, DMDN...We had a common friend. Someone who scared the bejesus out of us and made the night go faster. We found out the crazy ppl called in and were awesome comic relief.
God bless Art Bell. The Godfather of paranormal radio.
Insert quick Long John Nebel citation for continuity...

@AngiefromNJ , greetings. Listening to Art Bell live was like being part of large group of people. In the dark of the night, Art Bell was a light left on for the lonely, the insomniacs and the curious.

Ah the lonely in the night insomniacs- done first and best by Herb Jepko on the Nitecaps show:



https://www.deseretnews.com/article/660195859/Utahn-helped-shape-US-radio.html?pg=all
Who was the most influential Utah radio host in the past century of the medium's history?

The answer may vary with whom you ask, but I'm firmly sticking with Herb Jepko, who used to host and produce the "Nitecaps" syndicated program, the nation's first nighttime network talk show. (He died in 1995.)

I'm reminded of Jepko's importance in the evolution of U.S. radio by the recently published book "Something in the Air: Radio, Rock, and the Revolution that Shaped a Generation," by Marc Fisher.

"The Nitecappers were truckers, little old ladies, night clerks and insomniacs who called Jepko's studio in Utah and chatted on about garden clubs, favorite recipes and recent illnesses for five minutes each, at which point a gentle ring would interrupt, and Jepko would say, 'I hear Tinker Bell' and it would be someone else's turn," Fisher writes.

He refers to "Nitecaps" as the early "C-Span of all-night radio," going from Feb. 1, 1964, into the early 1980s. In its heyday, the show had 10.5 million listeners nightly and was heard over 255 U.S. radio stations via the Mutual Broadcasting Network.

"Jepko, his voice an even, soothing Midwestern baritone — never judged, never criticized, never made fun. He didn't tell stories; he simply presided over a non-stop stream of verbal pittter-patter that sounded like a radio version of the quiet chuckles that passed for humor in the pages of Reader's Digest," Fisher writes.

@PB , I was employed by a large teaching university teaching hospital. While on the job, I formed friendships with many people with different beliefs and back grounds. I would often try to stay on the topic of food. The topic of food does not divide people. I do not stereotype people. However, I did see a pattern within the age groups. The role of religion is changing. So many people who are forty years old and younger view having a religious view as foolish. They are quick to point out that religion was the cause for the wars in our history.

Almost, but it wasn't religion per se, it was the "banksters" who discovered that by funding and debt-enslaving nations war = profit...for them!

Yes, I had no idea they were wax before vinyl. What about summer before AC?

Iirc, the masters were wax originally (I may have that wrong, maybe someone else remembers more accurately), cylinders, I think, but because they weren't very durable, Edison later developed a way to make metal masters which were then pressed onto blobs of shellac, which became the '78's we may know from our grandparents' and parents' collections of records. It was an evolving process.

And, btw, Edison actually invented the phonograph originally because he was very interested in capturing spirit voices, he believed in the afterlife and mediums, etc. and hoped to capture the voice of the departed that way.

True! +1

Sigh. Pre-Meadowlands, it was still a swamp back then.  8)

Saratoga several times, on TV other times, once in Florida and a couple of other places, I don't remember exactly. I never took it too seriously, it was just fun for me.

I did well on slot machines, too, now and again, but played the nickel or quarter ones, again for fun. I'd set a limit to how much I would bet for the day and stop when/if I lost it all. That way it was fun, not important, and I got to practice my hunches with no pressure to be right, no big down side, no real risk. Slightly better than half the time I'd be enough ahead at the end of the day to be able to have a really nice dinner somewhere or some other wee treat from the winnings.  ;D

@AngiefromNJ , greetings. Listening to Art Bell live was like being part of large group of people. In the dark of the night, Art Bell was a light left on for the lonely, the insomniacs and the curious. Who is Art Bell's legacy? I looked up the definition of legacy. The dictionary would define "legacy" as a gift or a bequest, that is handed down, endowed or conveyed from one person to another. Not one person stands out to me as his legacy.  :(
I don't think a person is really a legacy. To me, his legacy is the awareness of the many aspects of the paranormal that we all are interested in and share, and that sense of community in our interests is his legacy. He had a really big, important impact on so many people! There was no one like him in the radio world.

We've all been in that space, you have to start somewhere.

I found the culture there toxic enough to avoid it as a participant for years - but to be fair these so-called "fan groups" turning on their progenitors is nothing new it seems. The parasites consume the host in due time. That bothers me, it's a bit like:



But the recent action, led by Brig, to induce less stable types to livestream and youtube themselves for her boredom time gratification is heedless incitement to behaviors that have no built-in containment mechanisms. I guess we can say that Groyper isn't likely to actually use his Glock on a cat lady, despite his Twitter post...but...what if he's not any more stable than some others we've seen?

I still question why Twitter has left that pic up, but that's just me.

Here is a question, were you there with the same name as you are here?  If no, name was different, how come? Just curious. I was same name.

Different name - derivation of the one that Bart zoo'd here.

We've all been in that space, you have to start somewhere.

I found the culture there toxic enough to avoid it as a participant for years - but to be fair these so-called "fan groups" turning on their progenitors is nothing new it seems. The parasites consume the host in due time. That bothers me, it's a bit like:

But the recent action, led by Brig, to induce less stable types to livestream and youtube themselves for her boredom time gratification is heedless incitement to behaviors that have no built-in containment mechanisms. I guess we can say that Groyper isn't likely to actually use his Glock on a cat lady, despite his Twitter post...but...what if he's not any more stable than some others we've seen?

I still question why Twitter has left that pic up, but that's just me.

Back to point - if you are consumed by anger or like to act out at the extreme limits of the first amendment - bellgrab is the place, just know that its SCOTUS is functionally a one man panel - MV. :-X
@26 horses , the complex behavior of human beings is not easy to understand.  Sigmund Freud's psychoanalytic theory of personality is an easy rule to follow.  All you need is social media to play out the show. I had to start posting in other threads for my own reasons. Not only did I dislike what I viewed in other members, but also, I did not like what I viewed in myself.

I've had the precise same non-reality interrupt occur and it can be a delicious headspace balm, if one lets it be so.

Love the Forbidden Planet clip, such a thoughtful riff on Shakespeare's iconic "The Tempest" that one was.

I still revere Cassavettes' 1982 version though the trailer online is bland. Molly Ringwald's debut film, btw.

Well, a musical interlude is in keeping:

Ah, the cylinders. Yes, I saw them. We had a field trip to...what was it, not a museum but where he lived and worked. They walked us through the lab and then into the area where his desk was. They showed us the clock that they said someone ran in and stopped the moment he died.  I can't tell you how much I wanted to sit there and read through all of those papers!

How very cool! And of course Edison, NJ is named after him. I read a lot about him when I was very young because he and I share the same birthday. Later I found out so did James Joyce, and I read a lot of his work in school, but he wasn't really my cup of tea after that.

Edison, btw, was close friends with Henry Ford, and they spent a lot of time together in Florida down near Ft. Myers on the southern gulf coast, the southwestern part of Florida. They had estates next to each other, which are now part of a museum and historic site:

"Edison and Ford Winter Estates  www.edisonfordwinterestates.org

The Edison and Ford Winter Estates contain a historical museum and 21 acre botanical garden on the adjacent sites of the winter homes of Thomas Alva Edison and Henry Ford beside the Caloosahatchee River in southwestern Florida."

Whatsa IPO?

Initial Public Offering, when a company first goes public from being private and offers shares to the public in one of the trading platforms in the stock market. Usually sorta fixed, offers made to insiders at the best price, then the public gets the leftovers after they have already started to jack up the price of a share.  :P

Happy day to you @Starman2018
Hi anniem! Hope your having a little sunshine on your face in your neck of the woods.
Art Bell fascinates me as an entertainer. I don't go around wearing Art Bell socks everyday (wink) but ya, I'm a fan. I looked into some of his background after catching a couple of his shows because of the uniqueness of his live broadcasts. His early years included radio, Ham radio. electronics just to name a few. He said he loved radio in his interviews and it certainly showed.
Group participation time! Your in a large dark room. Your eyes are closed and you hear foot steps echoing as they approach you in the dark from behind. They stop directly behind where you are standing . Then you hear Art Bell say " Do you believe in UFO's?" What a voice. A voice made for radio lucky bugger :) . The guy was at the right place at the right time with the right show. I think if his health was not as bad as it turned out to be he could have had another great relaunch in today's world. His passion was radio without a doubt. I'm not taking this post to the report on his passing. I'm sure the family has had enough of possibly seeing that discussion. He had a creative streak and I'm sure he would not have had to solely depended on live callers. He delivered great interviews with guests even when there were no open lines. Was he perfect? No, Was he awesome at what he did? In my books oh yeah. Art delivered the goods and four hours of live radio with him was never boring. Does anyone actually know how many of his own shows in total he did as the host in his career?

I adore Monty Python.
It was on the PBS station when I was a kid, and we watched them each week. One episode had them in a boat and they decided they would have to devour parts of each other to survive. In comes my grandmother to visit, wanted to see what we were up to and we had her sit down and watch with us.  She was FURIOUS that my mother would let us watch such awful stuff. Luckily, my mother didn't mind it.

Ah, found it.
http://www.ibras.dk/montypython/episode26.htm#16 (http://www.ibras.dk/montypython/episode26.htm#16)
In my Navy days, Monty Python came on at 11pm on Friday night. This was well before cellphones texting or messaging so me and my Navy bud would tune in then call each other and chat and laugh about that nights episode. Tech has come a long way. lol. " Nobody expects the Spanish inquisition!" :)

Right. My father listened to him when we lived in NJ, he didn't sleep very well. My father also was likely looking for info because he saw a UFO one night while walking the dog.

I completely agree. He tried, and I think it was too much for the sick old guy. Do you think someone really shot at him?

Good idea.
One could count the number of shows in that ultimate collection, but I hear that there are still some interviews on cassettes in drawers. I also think the prep for shows is harder now than it used to be. I really was happy to hear Karen in her interview say that he was the happiest he'd ever been towards the end of his life - he brought a great deal of happiness to many many people.

I don't think a person is really a legacy. To me, his legacy is the awareness of the many aspects of the paranormal that we all are interested in and share, and that sense of community in our interests is his legacy. He had a really big, important impact on so many people! There was no one like him in the radio world.

Art's legacy is his body of work.  No one can simply copy another entertainer, athlete, etc, and become just like them, or we'd have seen someone do it by now.  I don't think we'd want that anyway.

Usually sorta fixed, offers made to insiders at the best price, then the public gets the leftovers after they have already started to jack up the price of a share.  :P

And almost inevitably, once the buzz is over, at some point the shares of most companies fall to a price lower than the IPO price.  Usually before the 6 month lock up is over (when the insiders who didn't sell their shares during the IPO are allowed to sell them).

When the company sells more shares to the public, it called a Secondary Offering.

To me, that's laughable.  I think he liked the idea of doing a show, but coming back realized he didn't want to do it anymore.  Instead of taking a huge amount of flack for quitting - yet again - he decided to go out in a blaze of glory.

That it backfired so completely, and turned him into a laughingstock in certain corners of the internet, is also part of his legacy.

Q:Do you think someone really shot at him?

I'm not sure to tell you the truth. My Dad had COPD that contributed to his passing so I saw how struggling for each breath 24/7 could be a difficult thing to deal with especially for a broadcaster of his popularity doing live programs and maintain the quality he was known for. Art mentioned in some broadcasts he always wanted the best audio for his shows and was proud of the results. Then again, he also mentioned he was concerned for the safety of his family and I can relate to a statement like that. I was not his neighbor so it's just my take on things with admittedly really no first hand knowledge. Did anyone else in his neighborhood officially report the sounds of gunfire that night? It's the desert so sound especially at night will carry very well if close by. I really didn't follow that incident after Art spoke about it on the air.

I do sometimes. Still good. But especially if a "new" one pops up somewhere on the interwebs or I find one in the archives that I missed. I like the folks who recorded the whole show also. Sometimes I get confused and then realize the weather report or whatever is from 20years ago and not even about my area. Also the local commercials or local news is funny. Flashback. And, strangely, how much of the world hasn't changed: big "weather event," some bombings in the Middle East, traffic, some wars in the same places, illegal immigration, etc.

Me too. I truly hope that his close family and friends can remember him as a family needs to on that day and not have to deal with unnecessary distractions or interruptions at their home.

Thank you anniem. That was very kind of you to say. COPD does indeed make the day long struggling constantly to get air. He had a great sense of humor and I have nice memories of the past when I think of him and I sharing a laugh. I also share those moments with family and friends from time to time and it puts a smile on my face. We all know what it's like to deal with sorrow and heartache in one way or another. I prefer to enjoy the wonderful memories of him that pop up unexpectedly here and there as we travel the yellow brick road. (Insert Hippy moment of reflection): After all, from the moment after we are born, we only get one chance to do our best to get it right and enjoy life as best we can. Of course, some Art Bell open line callers might argue with my (one chance) statement. Said in my best Art Bell voice-" Tonight's show. Time travel". Wink..wink.

They do. I have long hair,  some other brands don't stay put. The airs are new, had a problem with the multifunction button and they were fast to set me up with replacements.

At night I have a pair of "ladies' sports earbuds (I forget the brand, not terribly expensive, got 'em in Target) that has a weird rubber movable tip that actually goes into the ear canal a bit and stays put, sort of like the old cell phone high-end ones I had that sat in my ear the same way. I could still hear everything else, but at least these stay in place.

Oh, how complicated technology can be!  ;)

MRI came back. It said "words words words, things and stuff, words stuff and stuff" Nothing terrible, but there is some things not right. I have no idea what it means, nothing terrible. Some  structural business. Let you know more after the next doctor visit.

Earlier today, I listened to an old Art Bell show and really enjoyed hearing the show.
I am now listening to Phil Hendrie's Art Bell parody clips. Just too funny.

I'm not sure to tell you the truth. My Dad had COPD that contributed to his passing so I saw how struggling for each breath 24/7 could be a difficult thing to deal with especially for a broadcaster of his popularity doing live programs and maintain the quality he was known for. Art mentioned in some broadcasts he always wanted the best audio for his shows and was proud of the results. Then again, he also mentioned he was concerned for the safety of his family and I can relate to a statement like that. I was not his neighbor so it's just my take on things with admittedly really no first hand knowledge. Did anyone else in his neighborhood officially report the sounds of gunfire that night? It's the desert so sound especially at night will carry very well if close by. I really didn't follow that incident after Art spoke about it on the air.

We had a scare when we had to have COPD ruled out for my mother. Luckily it only ended up being exertional asthma. I thought there was corroboration from the neighbor who turned out to be feather. So who knows, I had the impression that it was a true thing.

I do sometimes. Still good. But especially if a "new" one pops up somewhere on the interwebs or I find one in the archives that I missed. I like the folks who recorded the whole show also. Sometimes I get confused and then realize the weather report or whatever is from 20years ago and not even about my area. Also the local commercials or local news is funny. Flashback. And, strangely, how much of the world hasn't changed: big "weather event," some bombings in the Middle East, traffic, some wars in the same places, illegal immigration, etc.

They are still good. We've been listening to the old shows recently. I don't think we came across any weather reports and whatnot, but I'm sure it is just a matter of time. So many years, so many shows.  :)

No problem, really don't worry. I have some arthritis in my foot that has basically locked the toe. It hurts quite a bit and I intend to have it fixed. Years ago they found chronic synovitis in this ankle and it can be bothersome, so I figured if I am going to to have foot work I might as well see what is going on in the ankle. If something can improve that, well, we'll be right there anyhow so "all at once" makes sense to me. Next appointment will be in the summer, there is no urgency to it all. Thanks for asking!

Thank you anniem. That was very kind of you to say. COPD does indeed make the day long struggling constantly to get air. He had a great sense of humor and I have nice memories of the past when I think of him and I sharing a laugh. I also share those moments with family and friends from time to time and it puts a smile on my face. We all know what it's like to deal with sorrow and heartache in one way or another. I prefer to enjoy the wonderful memories of him that pop up unexpectedly here and there as we travel the yellow brick road. (Insert Hippy moment of reflection): After all, from the moment after we are born, we only get one chance to do our best to get it right and enjoy life as best we can. Of course, some Art Bell open line callers might argue with my (one chance) statement. Said in my best Art Bell voice-" Tonight's show. Time travel". Wink..wink.

AH, this was the message I wanted to get back to. My Dad also had a great sense of humor. There were ongoing jokes we had and he comes to mind when something he would have had a response to comes up.  Those sound like the things you describe as memories that pop up. We were all also taught to always do our best. My mother told us that when they got married and started to have kids they decided that they wanted to have fun with us, not living in a strict ways loaded with rules. There was one rule mainly. "We are known in town, do not embarrass us."

I have some ancient Realstic brand phones like that - good old Radio Shack, they made some decent stuff in the day...
I like this style, or yours, because you can hammer out a strong treadmill workout and never pop an ear bud, and how anoying is that!

But they're due to be replaced, yours look aces.

I like them. Earbuds just are never comfortable. I wonder if it is because I have small ear canals, or so the ENT doc said they were small. I can hear very well. There was ONE pair of ear buds that were terrific, they were comfortable sennheisers that had a great sound. The ear buds now seem to seal up your ears and I don't like that at all.

Well, that's the main thing, I'm glad to hear that.

I've had gout (which is a form of arthritis) since my 20s, when I feel it coming on a couple of glasses of cherry juice clears it right up (along with a couple ibuprofen to get rid of the related swelling).  Some people say 'tart' cherry juice, but any kind words for me.  Less pleasant is apple cider vinegar, but that also helps quite a bit.  If you haven't already tried them, you may want to.

Cherry juice!  Have not heard of that. I will see what I can find. I'm happy to have some stuff to try, specifically it is hallux rigidus. So the arthritis irritated the bone with grew to prevent damage from the arthritis...I need the excess bone taken away and some sort of implant (I think it will be skin from a dead person) put in there after the joint is re-built. I just was not able to drink ACV, but I have tablets I take instead. I plan to take the time off for that right before vacation right next to retirement and that will be that.
Can you prevent flare ups somehow?

Works better if I start drinking it early in the flare-up cycle, but suggest she try it for a few days - and have some on hand for the next flare-up

There should be plenty of info on the 'net about it

Yeah, I take tiny sips of the vinegar (or dilute it with water) but I suppose it could be consumed as salad dressing or whatever else vinegar is used for.

The cherries / cherry juice may be specific to gout, and not beneficial for other types of arthritis, I don't really know

As far as preventing flare-ups, I haven't had a serious one in a very long time - I think it's because I go right for the cherry juice if I even think one might be coming on.

I know!!

This is absolutely, definitely a proven scientific fact.  8)

And yes I do have thoughts about Bluetooth. I don't like the idea of any radiowaves I don't have to be around buzzing around me, especially from a headset sitting next to my brain! There are a bunch of studies starting to come out that using bluetooth headsets instead of wired ones, especially those people who just wear them most of the time, can cause inflammation and possible cancerous tumors in the brain near where the headsets sat.

In general, it's better to use a wired headset with cellphones, and not to carry them on your body, either, for the same reasons... tumors are more frequent at sites where cellphones are carried a lot in contact with the body. I really worry especially about men who carry them in their back pockets all the time, or in a pouch or directly on their belts. Convenient, maybe, but not a good idea. The phone should ideally be at least a few inches away from your body (which is why you're better to use a wired headset than hold the phone to your ear a lot, also).

I'll bet you didn't expect a term paper on that now, did you? But those are my thoughts on this.

As for blue teeth, interesting as that concept is, I think I'll pass. It's too biting a concept for me to deal with at this time.  ;D

P.S. I finally just remembered the brand of the old cell phone headsets that had the earpieces that worked for me: Jabra. Probably out of business, I'm guessing?

Radiowaves buzz around you whether or not something is there to receive them. The antenna in blue tooth headsets just picks up what is present. It doesn’t attract it like a magnet.

More likely to get an ear infection from always having earbuds in your ears.

Gout is much more rare in women then in men, but lucky me! My Dad and brother had gout issues, and I got a horrible flare-up about 10 years ago that was the most painful thing I have ever experienced other than surgery for Crohn's, and the gout was worse because it took a full week to calm down! And yes, I used tart cherry juice and an herb, maybe black cohosh? not sure, but they sure helped a lot. There is no good Rx for gout, really the cherry juice is the way to go. For me, the tart stuff was much better, but whatever works... just make sure sure sure it has no added sugar, that will keep the inflammation going. Also knock off the alcohol and sugary foods till the gout subsides, in olden times it was called "the rich man's disease" because more wealthy men with rich diets were the ones who got it most often.

People who wear bluetooth earpieces all day have their phones with them too, usually on their body. Otherwise, why wear a bluetooth earpiece if you're not going to use it with the phone? It picks up the close-by phone radiowaves whether you're talking or not.

I never have earbuds in unless I am actually on the cell phone during the day, and I take the ones that help me fall asleep out just as I'm drifting off, years-long habit doncha know.

You're smart to eschew bluetooth at close range, especially head range.

I believe these old style Radio Shack foam tips can be used over traditional ear buds too.

I really worry especially about men who carry them in their back pockets all the time, or in a pouch or directly on their belts. Convenient, maybe, but not a good idea. The phone should ideally be at least a few inches away from your body (which is why you're better to use a wired headset than hold the phone to your ear a lot, also).

I'll bet you didn't expect a term paper on that now, did you? But those are my thoughts on this.

+1 and confirmed  - short wavelength RF and soft tissue is a really bad combination.

As for blue teeth, interesting as that concept is, I think I'll pass. It's too biting a concept for me to deal with at this time.  ;D

P.S. I finally just remembered the brand of the old cell phone headsets that had the earpieces that worked for me: Jabra. Probably out of business, I'm guessing?

Not at all - making plenty of good stuff yet:

Call centers seem to have boosted their business. :-\

Radiowaves buzz around you whether or not something is there to receive them. The antenna in blue tooth headsets just picks up what is present. It doesn’t attract it like a magnet.

Some bluetooth headsets transmit back - they're not all passive.

https://www.rfsafe.com/bluetooth-radiation-dangerous-cell-phone-radiation/

Bluetooth radiation has been even less studied than cell phone radiation. The lack of any formal studies has enabled the ‘experts’ to claim that Bluetooth radiation is safe. This claim is based not on research proving Bluetooth radiation safe, rather on a lack of research proving it to be unsafe – but that is changing quickly.

Bluetooth radiation emitted from all Bluetooth Headsets and Technologies and is a type of wireless radio wave frequency (RF) also known as microwave radiation.

Microwave frequencies have a short wavelength and a rapid rate of oscillation (2.4 billion times per second) very well suited for data and voice communications as well as cooking your dinner at a much higher wattage.

Multiple studies have reported that as short as a single, two-hour exposure to cell phone or blue tooth radiation will result in pathological leakage of the blood-brain barrier. The effect occurs immediately and is still seen at 14 days and at 50 days post-exposure at only 0.012 W/Kg to 0.002 W/Kg.

The lowest exposure SARs are worse than the higher SAR exposures (Nittby et al, 2009).   These studies show neuron death (brain cells) at SARs of only 0.012 W/Kg.

It is reasonable to conclude that a device which radiates at a higher intensity than some cell phones are very risky in terms of your accumulated exposures.  So Bluetooth radiation may be equally or more dangerous than cell phone radiation in some cases.

Biker vs. Squirrel

I never dreamed slowly cruising through a residential neighborhood  could be so incredibly dangerous ...

I had been banging around the roads of east Texas and as I headed back into Dallas, found myself in very heavy freeway traffic. Two near misses with a couple of brain-dead drivers within seconds of each other convinced me it was time to get off the freeway.

I hit the next exit, and as I was in an area I knew pretty well, headed through a few big residential neighborhoods. I turned onto the nearly empty streets and figured some slow riding through the quiet surface streets would give me time to relax on the final leg of my ride home.

Little did I suspect…

As I passed an oncoming car, a brown furry missile shot out from under it and tumbled to a stop immediately in front of me. It was a squirrel, and must have been trying to run across the road when it encountered the car. I really was not going very fast, but there was no time to brake or avoid it—it was that close. I barely had time to brace for the impact.

Animal lovers, never fear. Squirrels can take care of themselves!

Inches before impact, the squirrel flipped to his feet. He was standing on his hind legs and facing my oncoming Harley with steadfast resolve in his little beady eyes. His mouth opened, and at the last possible second, he screamed and leapt! I am pretty sure the scream was squirrel for, “Banzai!” or maybe, “Die you gravy-sucking, heathen scum!” as the leap was spectacular and he flew over the windshield and impacted me squarely in the chest.

Instantly he set upon me. If I did not know better I would have sworn he brought twenty of his little buddies along for the attack. Snarling, hissing, and tearing at my clothes, he was a frenzy of activity. As I was dressed only in a light t-shirt, summer riding gloves, and jeans this was a bit of a cause for concern. This furry little tornado was doing some damage!

Picture a large man on a huge black and chrome cruiser, dressed in jeans, a t-shirt, and leather gloves puttering maybe 25mph down a quiet residential street…and in the fight of his life with a squirrel. And losing.

I grabbed for him with my left hand and managed to snag his tail. With all my strength I flung the evil rodent off the left side of the bike, almost running into the right curb as I recoiled from the throw.

That should have done it. The matter should have ended right there. It really should have. The squirrel could have sailed into one of the pristinely kept yards and gone on about his business, and I could have headed home. No one would have been the wiser.

But this was no ordinary squirrel. This was not even an ordinary pissed-off squirrel.

This was an evil attack squirrel of death!

Somehow he caught my gloved finger with one of his little hands, and with the force of the throw swung around and with a resounding thump and an amazing impact he landed square on my back and resumed his rather anti-social and extremely distracting activities, completely removing my left glove in the process.

I was startled to say the least. The combination of the force of the throw, only having one hand (the throttle hand) on the handlebars, and my jerking back unfortunately put a healthy twist through my right hand and into the throttle.

The engine roared as the front wheel left the pavement. The squirrel screamed in anger. The Harley screamed in ecstasy. I screamed in…well…I just plain screamed.

Now picture a large man on a huge black and chrome cruiser, dressed in jeans, a slightly squirrel torn t-shirt, and only one leather glove roaring at maybe 70mph and rapidly accelerating down a quiet residential street…on one wheel and with a demonic squirrel on his back. The man and the squirrel are both screaming bloody murder.

With the sudden acceleration I was forced to put my other hand back on the handlebars and try to get control of the bike. This was leaving the mutant squirrel to his own devices.

At this point the squirrel decided that I was not paying sufficient attention to this very serious battle and he came around my neck and got IN my opened full-face helmet with me. As the faceplate closed partway and he began hissing in my face I am quite sure my screaming changed tone and intensity. It seemed to have little affect on the evil rodent.

Now picture the large man on the huge black and chrome cruiser, dressed in jeans, a very ragged torn t-shirt, and wearing one leather glove, roaring at probably 80mph, still on one wheel, with a large puffy squirrel’s tail sticking out his mostly closed full-face helmet. By now the screams are probably getting a little hoarse.

Finally I got the upper hand…I managed to grab his tail again, pulled him out of my helmet, and slung him to the left as hard as I could. This time it worked…sort-of. Spectacularly sort-of, so to speak.

Picture the scene. You are a cop. You and your partner have pulled off on a quiet residential street and parked with your windows down to do some paperwork.

Suddenly a large man on a huge black and chrome cruiser, dressed in jeans, a torn t-shirt flapping in the breeze, and wearing one leather glove, moving at probably 80mph on one wheel, and screaming bloody murder roars by and with all his strength throws a live squirrel grenade directly into your police car.

I heard screams. They weren't mine...

I managed to get the big motorcycle under directional control and dropped the front wheel to the ground. I then used maximum braking and skidded to a stop in a cloud of tire smoke at the stop sign at a busy cross street.

I would have returned to fess up (and to get my glove back). I really would have. Really. But for two things. First, the cops did not seem interested or the slightest bit concerned about me at the moment. One of them was on his back in the front yard of the house they had been parked in front of and was rapidly crabbing backwards away from the patrol car. The other was standing in the street and was training a riot shotgun on the police cruiser.

So the cops were not interested in me. They often insist to “let the professionals handle it” anyway. That was one thing. The other? Well, I swear I could see the squirrel, standing in the back window of the patrol car among shredded and flying pieces of foam and upholstery, and shaking his little fist at me. I think he was shooting me the finger…

That is one dangerous squirrel. And now he has a patrol car…

I took a deep breath, turned on my turn-signal, made an easy right turn, and sedately left the neighborhood.

As for my easy and slow drive home? Screw it. Faced with a choice of 80mph cars and inattentive drivers, or the evil, demonic, attack squirrel of death...I’ll take my chances with the freeway. Every time.

And I’ll buy myself a new pair of gloves.

AH, this was the message I wanted to get back to. My Dad also had a great sense of humor. There were ongoing jokes we had and he comes to mind when something he would have had a response to comes up.  Those sound like the things you describe as memories that pop up. We were all also taught to always do our best. My mother told us that when they got married and started to have kids they decided that they wanted to have fun with us, not living in a strict ways loaded with rules. There was one rule mainly. "We are known in town, do not embarrass us."
I know how you feel. The military police on the base knew my Dad so when they were on patrol and saw us out late they would roll down the window and say " Are you Georges kids? Get home now! And we would run all the way. Very little wiggle room to get into any serious trouble but we did have childhood adventures for sure.

Hey FISH. Was the Phil Henfrie show recorded somewhere. I'd like to give that one a listen as I have already heard TLPD. BTW, when I saw your Art Bell post I heard it in his voice as I read. lol. Go figure. :) What better way to honor the guy than with an Art Bell quote.
Still no reliable official channel reply on my question to the electronic highway wondering how many shows total Art Bell did as a host. I'll also throw it out there from time to time in other rooms. I'm sure I'll get a bite eventually. Have a great day and cheers for now. See ya on the flip side. :)

@Starman2018 -In remembrance of Art Bell, Phil Hendrie was playing for FREE audio and video from his Art Bell impressions over the weekend. There is YouTube video with poor/low sound. :(

A few days ago I posted this story. It will help you to understand my sense of humor.
 @sean92008 greetings. Death itself is never funny. My four grand parents’ funeral services were not held at a funeral parlor but in a "home".  As a child, I remember having Granny being laid out in our front parlor. Granny was spending her last night above the earth with her family.  In my kitchen, I heard my family talking about Granny, including humorous experiences. I was taught that telling “funny stories” about the departed is not considered disrespectful.
While Granny was laying out in our parlor, my brother and I got into a pushing fight. We almost knocked Granny and her coffin over. We got into BIG trouble. We were sent to bed. My mother was so angry with us for fighting so close to the coffin.
As I lament the anniversary of Art Bell’s passing over, I have been listening to Phil Hendrie. Phil is sharing an ART BELL MARATHON. Laughter is good for the soul. I took a pass with C2C. I went with humor as a means to pay tribute to Art on 4/13.

So...  Art made Hi-Fi VHS recordings of all the early shows...
I think I read that the tapes were handed over... maybe not, maybe it was just referring to the ownership of the intellectual property rights... Maybe Airyn will push for "legacy" permission to convert them if she has possession.  Yeah, pretty unlikely...

Eh, nevermind.

@Starman2018 -In remembrance of Art Bell, Phil Hendrie was playing for FREE audio and video from his Art Bell impressions over the weekend. There is YouTube video with poor/low sound. :(

A few days ago I posted this story. It will help you to understand my sense of humor.
 @sean92008 greetings. Death itself is never funny. My four grand parents’ funeral services were not held at a funeral parlor but in a "home".  As a child, I remember having Granny being laid out in our front parlor. Granny was spending her last night above the earth with her family.  In my kitchen, I heard my family talking about Granny, including humorous experiences. I was taught that telling “funny stories” about the departed is not considered disrespectful.
While Granny was laying out in our parlor, my brother and I got into a pushing fight. We almost knocked Granny and her coffin over. We got into BIG trouble. We were sent to bed. My mother was so angry with us for fighting so close to the coffin.
As I lament the anniversary of Art Bell’s passing over, I have been listening to Phil Hendrie. Phil is sharing an ART BELL MARATHON. Laughter is good for the soul. I took a pass with C2C. I went with humor as a means to pay tribute to Art on 4/13.

Hi FISH. Thanks for sharing. I have family on my Dads side from the UK so I understand the tradition of someone passing and having a service in the home. Looks like you and your brother had quite the spark. :) . Phil has Art down to a T! What a hoot! Lmao.Btw. Inside joke= I'm off the eggnog for good now. Christmas will never be the same after tonight. ;)

Well, not every show with a classic, it is incredible stuff that still deserves to be heard. Hell, KOGO radio in San Diego plays Somewhere in Time every week...  Some of the stuff is quite timely.

By the way, Hi-Fi VHS is really decent quality for a talk show.  It would sound perfect as if it were recorded yesterday.

One big *IF*:
If the tapes haven't gone bad. If they are stored in the desert, there is a good chance they'll be okay.

@starman , In the year 2019, funeral services have been reinvented. Yesterday, I attended a "Celebration of Life" funeral service. There was a beautiful little box on a table-the ashes. The departed one's son-in-law gave a heart touching eulogy. He spoke for about 5 minutes. My IRISH DNA does not have a cold heart. My memories went back to the old ways of lamenting a death in a home that lasted over 24 hours.
The funeral director asked if anyone wanted to share a memory of the departed one. No one volunteered to speak.

How can I turn off iPad autocorrect?
Sometimes you just don't need Apple's iPad dictionary telling you how to spell. The feature can be helpful but sometimes it's not the best at recognizing certain words and proper names, etc.

To turn auto correct off:

1. Navigate to Settings -> General -> Keyboard

2. Touch Auto-Correction -> OFF

If there was one person who would have a justifiable concern about the legacy becoming available, it's George.

I mean, Somewhere in Time is still run on a considerable number of stations. Art's show was and is still unbeatable. There's no way to battle a ghost and a side-by-side comparison of the two programs makes that ghost look bigger and badder than ever.

If there was ever a time that the fox was guarding the henhouse, it is with those tapes and George Noory involved.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if they offered access to those archives at an even lower price and directed that money to medical care for veterans or something of the sort.

Eh, nevermind.

@FISH, that would be the way to lessen resistance by George or the network.  If there was a concerted effort, who could say "no" to puppies or veterans? No one could!  To ultra make sure it happened, a fund to give veterans puppies would be the necessary emotional manipulation to make it happen.

The famed UFO researcher died Monday at Toronto's Pearson International Airport, his daughter Melissa Friedman confirmed Tuesday.

Wasn’t where to put this but here goes anyway...

I am ashamed that I haven’t shown this on here before, but Marital Unit and I like to buy each other geek things that would be meaningless to other people yet OMFG to each other (his framed art made from the exact length of Kraftwerk’s Computerworld cassette album for him, an art print of the entire script of The Princess Bride for me etc).

So a few years back he bought me a book.

It’s an Art book - literally.

It’s a book containing a collection of Art inspired by Mel’s Hole.

Apologies for all the pics, but anyway here’s my highlights, as well as the ISBN number in case anyone wants to try and get a copy.

This has inspired me to make a HIS(HERS?) AND HERS(HIS?) line of shirts for people named Mel.

Mel - shirt says Mel
Mel's partner - Mel's Hole

I finally learned how people on EllGab post those BIG images. Thanks to @Bart Ell 's sterling performance, I am a success story.
Just for the record, at times, I am potato head but I am not related to JM.

I think I downloaded "Ultimate Art Bell" - I have since deleted it because of a massive cleanup and optimization of my hard drive.  I just decided I could go back and get it later...

Virus-loaded???

I am curious TB, which site did you see that at?  I always lose PirateBay's location...

Any true Art Bell fan from his heyday must include Ramona as part of the "fanship."  How does Heather handle this?

Does she fantasize that she's Ramona? Who's (RIP Ramona) Ramona to Heather?

Could the #legacysquatting have been a desire to reverse cowgirl?

Too soon?

Some thoughts are better left off staying inside your brain.

Just sayin.

Has anyone subscribed to the Art Bell vault on Coast? If you have is it worth the membership and are the shows ones that have not been in circulation prior? Thanks for any information on this.

While I don't know what the catalog includes, Art had said that there was a Hi-Fi VHS recording of each show. Hi-Fi VHS audio what is the equivalent of 15 ips (inches per second) reel-to-reel audio quality. Better than anything you would have heard unless you had satellite reception of the network feed.  One can only presume that they are digging through those tapes.

I could speculate that the issuance of these recordings could be to establish ownership versus all the streaming services that play old Chancellor Broadcasting editions of C2C.

or, more likely:

IT COULD ALSO BE THAT THEY JUST NEED THE FRESH BLOOD BECAUSE GEORGE IS NOT DRAWING ENOUGH NEW SUBSCRIBERS.
