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.
ghettodwarf: 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./Lots of CSB
oldtaku: 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.
M-G: 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.

JohnBigBootay: Ctoc is where I learned Bigfoot smells like shiat. Really enjoyed father Malachi and ancient aliens and of course, Mel's hole.
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.
