Art Bell on ham radio talks about his replacement


I remember when I used to listen to Art Bell in the late 80s and through the 90s. The cool thing was that he broadcast from a small town in the middle of the desert -- Pahrump, Nevada. He wasn't in Los Angeles. He wasn't in New York. That fact alone, made his shows on Area 51, alien abduction, the quickening, exorcism, etc., more authentic, imaginative, and entertaining.

According to his wiki, he's back living in Pahrump. Glad to hear that!

no one posts here anymore, but i am sure a bunch of us are still listening. speaking for myself personally, i started listening 12-13 years ago when i was in high school. since then sometimes i've had to take breaks when the subject matter wasn't very interesting to me for months at a time or when i've had 9-5 jobs. about 3 months ago i started listening regularly again. i even bought a streamlink account! i can't really stay up all night now listening to the radio, even though i do feel uncomfortable with the whole clear channel/premiere radio network stuff - their programming isn't really my style.

i was kinda turned off by art bell leaving, since i have a big place in my heart for him. by this point though, i don't think george noory is doing that badly. i mean sometimes he is a bit laughable. there was a guy on recently who studied the roles of superstition in our brains and noory spent pretty much the whole time talking about how he was a special snowflake who just doesn't believe in those things and he will walk under ladders holding a black cat all day long. i wanted to shake him!

anyways, i just wanted to make a post cause its so dead here but i've started to listen again. and to celebrate this comm's nine year anniversary (!!!), i decided to change the journal layout. the icon stays though, cause its fucking classic

(no subject)

i'll be keeping an eye on this community for the next few weeks and deleting anything that i, as a moderator decide we will have nothing to fucking do with. sorry i didn't catch it sooner.

your pal,


man - i *really* miss Art.

coast to coast pretty much sucks lately. All the interviews sound like those stupid canned Tahiti Village casino commercials.
