I used to listen to Coast to Coast when I worked midnight shifts back in the 90's, it was damn entertaining stuff.  While I haven't heard the show in years, I always suspected it went full on nutballs post 9/11. (It was always nutballs.) I see I was not wrong.
 
2014-02-12 01:51:49 PM  
I also started listening to this show during the occasional times I would be working the perimeter of a prison what seems like ages ago, now.  There are some wild people out there, man.  I kind of liked Art, but George Noory or whatever didn't really sit well with me.
 
2014-02-12 01:53:10 PM  
That post makes it sound like I'm an avid listener.  I don't really listen anymore, except once in a while, since I've no need for the background noise at that hour.
 
2014-02-12 01:55:23 PM  
I get up at 3 am mst and I'm to work by 4. I have 20 min in the car. At that time of day, it's either c to c or bbc. I usually choose c to c. Because why not. I barely hear what's going on at that time anyway.

Same here, it made the overnight shift fly by.  The Chemtrail people were my favorite nuts.

Didn't know C2C and Johnny B had parted ways.

Really miss Art Bell and wish he'd stuck with Sirius as George Noorey seems more interested in religious mysteries than scientific mysteries.

Me too. The funniest people to me were the ghost hunter types. They would play a recording that sounded like static and have a moan or something in it and call it proof. Always an entertaining show.

My favorite Coast to Coast AM moment was about ten years ago a Doctor Freeman called in about working at a lab named after a dark color flat hill top. They were working on portal tech and he was being followed by a man in a suit. It was pretty funny that the producer let to go on air.

No, one of the B Team hosts, John B Wells.

The only host worth a damn on there is George Knapp. He's great.
 
2014-02-12 03:16:22 PM  
C2C started going down hill when Art left. Noory ran the show into the ground. John B. Wells only hosted on Saturdays but he was the only host I'd bother listening to. Yeah he could be kooky but he had "the voice." That gloomy, deep, gravelly, two-pack-a-day voice that added an extra creepy dimension to the show. Also, his topics were very similar to Art's topics.
 
2014-02-12 03:16:54 PM  
I enjoyed John B. on C2C.  Nice contrast from Noory's nice guy act.  John used to also sprinkle in music trivia and history that was always quite interesting.

The spookiest call was the Area 51 worker who called in, talking about how the aliens were interdimensional beings, and then his phone link went dead.
 
2014-02-12 03:17:49 PM  
Wknd host George Knapp is awesome.Not afraid to laugh at himself. Reads his listener emails on the air..even when they call him an "Asshat".
 
2014-02-12 03:18:34 PM  
...and orbs, don't forget about the orbs.

Seriously, anytime I listened to that show, it seemed like somebody was calling in to talk about the illuminated orbs in their backyard.
 
2014-02-12 03:19:54 PM  
Coast to Coast archives is better than anything they run these days, although I'd like to consult the reverse speech guy to see what Art really thinks.

One of my all-time favorite episodes was the interview with the guy who made rockets as a kid down by Dayton and ended up flying off to the desert to launch for the military.

Anything Hoagland is laughably bad. Art could handle that doofus wonderfully. Noorey lets him go and doesn't challenge him. Hoagie is absolute gold with Art at the wheel.

I used to leave my radio on at night as background to get to sleep. I'd have C2C on our local right-of-Jerry-Doyle Am station in the 90s, and it was great, semi-creepy semi-wonderful stuff to doze to.

I love C2C AM, but recently it has sucked. JBW is a nutcase, but an interesting one. I might subscribe to his C2M show, just for the high-grade insanity.
 
2014-02-12 03:28:43 PM  
Who got fired? I stopped listening when George Nori came in to replace Art.  Art would call people on their BS and even kick them off the show if they kept on with BS that made zero sense to Art while George just listens to anything and says "facinating"... its ridiculous.

Please say George got fired.

It was definitely great for the ride back from the bar. I always liked how nonjudgmental Art was, allowing guests with mutual exclusive crazy theories to cobble some weird turducken theory together. It really was like that Simpsons with "the reverse vampires, in collaboration with the mole people and the Rand corporation..."

I'm reading a book on the US MiG squadron, and there was some very odd stuff going on there, just not what you think. For example, there was a guy in charge of maintaining the Soviet jets named Weird Harold who dressed up in women's clothing on the job, greeted an Admiral visiting from the Navy by running out wearing nothing but combat boots, a belt, and his cover, and he also would initiate new pilots with a variation of the old dick in a box joke. Apparently he was just too good at keeping foreign jets with sketchy documentation on limited replacement parts flying, so they had to overlook the weirdness.

It's also kind of funny, because they used Stealth fighter to help pay for the facilities for the MiGs, but at the same time the MiGs acted as a cover story for the F-117 pilots. A lot of pilots were trained against the MiGs as part of Red Flag, with those engagements being kept classified, so the MiGs became a really badly kept secret, so when the pilots said they were doing secret stuff at Tonopah, everyone just gave it a wink and a nod and assumed they were piloting MiGs.

Art Bell's almost uncanny ability to jump head-first 100% into any nutball story that callers would bring up were what made his show awesome.  Not an ounce of incredulousness anywhere in his entire body.

2014-02-12 03:37:28 PM  
I picked up an AM version of a DVR just to listen to Art Bell during the day. The man was just awesome at making boring stupid callers sound interesting. He had wonderful nut jobs being interviewed and as guests. He was so entertaining. I really quit listening to C2C when he left. I was considering getting a sat radio system when Art was going there, glad I didn't since he quickly left.

The callers were best. The glory days of unscreened open lines were simply fantastic. You rolled the dice and hopefully got a crazy.

On one show, Ian Punnet was getting irked that the guests (Project Camelot and Serpo people) kept self-promoting and wouldn't about Aliens and stuff. So he made them talk to a nut who thought he was some sort of extraterrestrial angel. Punnet fed the guy as well and the whole call went on for like 10 minutes.
 
2014-02-12 03:38:15 PM  
It's a weird thing to say but, I liked Art because he (mostly) kept some distance and critical thinking. He'd have some nutball on the show and he'd be saying things like "How interesting." "Wouldn't it be strange if this were true!"  And if you were paying attention you'd notice he usually kept from actually endorsing or affirming the reality of whatever whackass thing was being claimed and asked some probing questions.

The rest of the hosts are all super credulous gits who lob breathless softballs at the guests and are seemingly willing to believe anything and everything. Boring and stupid.

And either he was just listening and giving this guy his moment, or he really didn't know he was being trolled. I was quite honestly laughing my arse off when the guy was telling the story.

used to work in radio a lifetime ago.  I actually know John B Wells from his VO work.  At one time he was the voice in the promos for pretty much every Jacor (which eventually turned into Clear Channel) Rock radio station in the country.  The man made an ass-ton of money just for having a kick-ass voice.  He was always a little nutty too.

A little fun fact: Oliver Stone Loved John, if you watch the movie "Talk Radio" (When I worked in radio I always considered it a bit of a horror movie) John voices all the commercials, when they go to commercial break, you can hear his voice as Eric Bogosian takes off his headphones.  He (John) also played a newscaster in JFK.

Yeah, I remember someone talking to him (might've been Hoagland or something) about supposed artificial/manufatured items found in rover images on Mars.  He had some pictures, and Art actually said something like, "Yeah, I keep looking but .. I see rocks."

fugeeface: girlygirlmpls: Best Art Bell impression is done by Phil Hendrie. Funny and dead on. Best subscription money I have ever spent.

Wow, It's been a while since I heard Hendrie.  Last I heard, he was on KFI, but not anymore.  How he kept all that stuff straight in his head on his "interviews" was genius.  Would've loved to heard his Art bell impression.


It was funny, but Hendrie turned into a total Iraq War Supporter dipshiat. Yes, I realize he might have been faking that too, but he was a total asshole and his show became unlistenable.

Coast to Coast Am under Art bell was great. Art had the ability to make even the most unbelievable stories somewhat interesting, or have an enthralling 4 hour conversation with the likes of Michio Kaku. He once banned the not so amazing Kreskin from the show for his asshattery too. George welcomes people of his ilk on with open arms... and seems to have a thing for having Alex "I never met a conspiracy theory I didn't believe" Jones on once a month, and go on without calling him out on anything.

And George almost died while eating pizza rolls.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1914eEHOZPw

I don't think I ever got to listen when Art was on, but from what I've heard, Noori just doesn't do it.  Noori seems a nice enough guy and all that, but the show did get pretty boring.  They dropped C2C in my market for Ground Zero with Clyde Lewis, and that dude's a friggin' nut.  Drinks way too much of the Kool-Aid, goes ballistic when someone calls him out on some of his insane conspiracy crap.  Last time I caught it when it wasn't a rerun, he was interviewing Al Jourgenson of Ministry.  I like Al's music, but Christ, the shiat the sheer amount of drugs he took did to his brain is jaw-dropping.  It's like he labotomized himself and got strapped into a chair for five years watching nothing but Twilight Zone and Mormon propoganda.

The last time it was to spend more time with his family... his first wife passed away, and Art was newly married. He was away for a while until he decided to start a show on Sirius call "Dark Matter" when they wouldn't let Art stream the show free to insure people could hear it they said no. So he left again. Artbell.com is back up, and running with some Coast to Coast alternatives streaming on the site.

I can't sleep if it's quiet.
I used to crank up the Rock N Roll and rattle the windows, but now I have speakers in my pillows, and listen to a lot of late night strangeness.
My pal Kevin Smith died, but I still can't stand George Noory, even in my sleep.
I miss Kevin, and I miss Art, some of the nuts out there are even too far over the edge for me, and that's saying something.

A comment about the broken bolts above. I bought a 69 Firebird ragtop with only 3,000 miles on it in 83 because it was not fixable.
The robot had broken two bolts on the control arm that comes off the hub to the idler arm, over 35 it had a death shimmy, nobody could fix it, I bought it for $500 bux, on the way home it shimmied and I said fark this and floored it, it finally went wham-screeeee tire was out about 6 inches and I was the problem. The broken bolts were rusty in the break, but all the alignment equipment said it was perfect, which it was, till you hit 35.
I replaced the parts, no more problem...ex owner was sick about it, so I bought his 64 Dodge Dart ragtop for another 500 to make him feel better...replaced the fuel filter and put in new gas....whammo, great car....I think they had to hospitalize him that time.
Still trying to buy the 59 caddy ragtop in his back yard, but he won't sell it, and I ain't gonna tell him his points are stuck....he'll take the money sooner or later.

There was a great description of why Art retired a few years ago on Fark.
There were personal issues, son issues, a-holes spreading false information.....
I do not remember everything, but he essentially sold out the franchise and really disliked the way it went and cut his ties. Hopefully the person who knows the story better than me can post.

Again, he was the perfect interviewer. No matter what he was faced with, he made it interesting. According to articles at the time, he built his own broadcast studio. That is talent.

There was also the issue of a former guest named John David Oates who called Art a child molester amongst other things... and was banned from the show. George Noory after all that went on including a lawsuit from Art decided to let Oates back on the show. That was when Noory who tried to pretend he was a nice guy showed his true colors.

Used to LOVE Coast to Coast. Bell was great and the early Norry years were decent. Between the conspiracy and nutball stuff there would be a caller that would really hit a good note on something and freak you out.

Too bad no one has picked up that concept on radio with a better host..Just unfiltered callers talking about spooky stuff.
 
2014-02-12 05:54:04 PM  
According to a newspaper report written years ago, there were false charges against Art, as well as his son being raped by a coach according to police reports. The accuser was proven to be false on Art, lawsuits ensued, not sure what the endgame was with his son.

This is by memory, but I do remember when Art moved to the Philippines and there was a nasty editorial newspaper campaign against him, despite he moved there to get married to a local.

According to a friend (second hand) he has spoken to Art several times on amateur radio.

The better host is the key part. Art had a way of engaging the guests without kissing their asses.  He'd even tell them things like, "I'm looking at your photos/transcripts/evidence/etc. and I'm just not seeing it," but wouldn't make it sound like he'd written them off entirely, and more importantly would somehow do it in a way that made them want to talk more about different things.

George, on the other hand, seems unable to engage the guests without agreeing with everything they say.  There are times when he does call some of them on their wingiest of wingnut theories, but when he does he always loses them; it's always almost adversarial, if you will, so they get defensive.  Totally changes the tone of the interview.

TL;DR: With Art, I always felt like I was hearing an open-minded yet analytical person give some fringe people time to share their theories without any bias (mostly) in either direction, while asking interesting questions on the topic. With George I feel like I'm listening to the rantings of a downtown schizophrenic with occasional cheering from that one really slow homeless dude with the dent in the side of his head.

I thought you were just making a joke.


Honestly the only reason I caught it was because i worked at a radio station at the time. I would baby sit all five stations during the overnights. The computer that would run the stop sets was acting up and so I had to sit in the studio for that station and fire off the breaks manually. So I had to listen for when he was coming in and out of breaks because they have the odd network break after the news at the top and bottom of the hour. If you weren't really paying attention you could fire off the local that shouldn't be there.  I did find out that they love talking about the Moth Man on that show.

I do like how on the weekends some C2Cam stations will play old Art Bell shows as a lead in. It was really a better show back then. There is just something about George that has caused his version of the show to let me down. I have found Ground Zero Radio in the last few months. Since it is on at a reasonable hour, his home stations starts at 7pm West coast time, I have been listening to that more and more. Some of that stuff makes Coast to Coast seem like the evening news.

Bucky Katt: these guys were teabaggers before it was cool?


Quite frankly, thanks to the internet the conspiracy nuts, extremists, and fringe movements are merging together and cross-sharing information and conspiracies.

For example: Evangelicals, Neo-cons, and now Teabaggers are very much into hippie alternative treatments for some reason. I don't quite know why.

This books goes into more detail about it and it's a fun read, the author breaking into Bohemian Grove with Alex Jones of all people:  http://www.amazon.com/Them-Adventures-Extremists-Jon-Ronson/dp/074323 3 212

Fish_Fight!: shortymac: StrikitRich: Didn't know C2C and Johnny B had parted ways.

Really miss Art Bell and wish he'd stuck with Sirius as George Noorey seems more interested in religious mysteries than scientific mysteries.

I really want him to do some live-streaming podcast style show and be able to buy old episodes. Apparently Apple does internet radio now.

FARK I love the show so much, I don't believe a lick of it but Art always made sure to have good storytellers on the air. There's only been a few people where I thought I was endorsing their delusions instead of just lying to me.

I miss Mel's Hole, Shadow People, JC, etc

just go to you tube and type in 'art bell somewhere in time' and BAM! boat loads of old Art shows!


It's what I'm doing now. :)  I found that that he has an internet radio thing going now and I'm going to check it out.

Speaking of which, maybe you can help me out. I'm trying to find the show mentioned in the famous Shadow People episode with Thunder Strikes, where we first hear of the shadow people. This would be 2000-2001 sometime.

A caller called in and started describing his encounters with shadow people at his family's remote cabin as a kid. His family had moved there when his older sibling died in a car accident and it was so remote people used "x miles north of the creek" for directions. I believe it was the first mention of shadow people because the caller and Art weren't using the term and seemed confused by the whole concept.

I listened to it as a teen at 3am and it freaked me out, I've been dying for a copy.

Far as I know, Art still has a non-compete with Sirius.  The Dark Matters website is being run by someone else since Dark Matters went dark on Sirius.
