Art Bell

Post by RichMichaels » Sat Apr 14, 2018 5:14 pm

One of the originals.

I was camping in 1997 in the rustic woods of northern michigan listening to Art around the campfire, by myself (radio mental retreats) ... and when I heard this phone call - I believe it was the original airing; actual call - I nearly shit myself.

It was great radio. Played perfectly. I'm sure a hoax, but these were the days when most people understood - It is entertainment.

Like War of the Worlds, here it is.

Art Bell passed at 72 Friday.

Rich hope you are doing well and thanks for posting this. Art Bell was an original - and there have been very few of those. No phone screener, no producer, ran commercials at the beginning of every half hour including live reads. And he could switch gears from paranormal to conspiracy theory in a heartbeat. And it all sounded very natural and relaxed... less of a radio show and more of a late night Ham radio conversation. George Norry is good, but he can’t capture that same Art Bell feeling.
