Looks like Art Bell died on Friday the 13th. He was a radio host that did a paranormal talkshow in the 90's.


One of my favorite things he spoke about was shadow people. Here's a video so you can have a listen.

I am a late night guy... so I always appreciated his show when I had the chance to tune it.

The article ended with this...
"Naturally, Mr. Bell died on Friday the 13th."

I was never a regular C2C listener but I loved hearing him spar with JC Webster III (a hilarious Religious nut character).

It's a long story but I discovered the whole "JC" thing by accident and was curious about this "Art Bell/Coast To Coast" stuff....
Here's a really long video (6:30:42 minutes)....
....Funniest junk I've heard all day....especially when Art was involved. SIX HOURS OF THIS!

However....Ian Punnett vs. JC was also astoundingly funny....
....Especially THIS call! Be sure to empty your bladder and not be drinking while listening....It's got "The Book of the Dead" from THE EVIL DEAD!....It's got Dr. Demento as The Devil! It's got the sinful horrors of "Airplane Porn" and Cheerios cereal! It's got Punnett totally messing with JC's head and words!
"JC = 0
Ian Punnett = 1!"

I wouldn't minded Coast To Coast AM if it was just "Let's Talk Paranormal Stuff" but it kept getting into Doomsday Predictions and Conspiracy stuff and much of the politics is not my thing....Some stuff sometimes borders on "Alex Jones" territory but with none of the bad behavior, screaming, etc. and Paranormal things tossed in.

Maybe that's why Noory's loathed so much. Perhaps Art was more "Paranormal > Politics/Conspiracies" whereas Noory was "Politics/Conspiracies < Paranormal" or maybe it was the reverse. I never regularly listened to the show.
