Begoggle: Coast to Coast/Art Bell is for crazy people who aren't into FOX News.

No, those demographics merged a while back.  Half the crap that the Tea Party types rant about is stuff that I first heard on C2C in the '90s.

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.

ItchyMcDoogle: 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.

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.

Mel's hole? Or the screams from hell found in the deep hole in Russia?

I can't tell one hole from another.  Just ask my wife.

machoprogrammer: 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.

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.

Ennuipoet: 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.

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..."
