Absolutely, open line calls were his long suit.  Far and away my favorite segments.

Not a fond memory, but my most memorable show was the night Peter Robbins lost it on MitD.

That show with Robbins was strange. He's normally an amiable character, if a bit of a windbag. I heard him on another show recently and it seems he's got over all of that now, but it was compelling and excruciating to listen to all at the same time.

Pro wrestling? ???

The George Carlin and Willie Nelson interviews are two of my all time favorites.
Yup. Art asked Willie if he was tired yet and Willie says, "no, are you?"   ;D

Damn, I just heard the news.
Rest in peace Art....

I'd have to say that my favorite art memory is when I learned that other guy wasnt really the host...

I believe this was one of Art's favorite quotes. ;)


In the 1990's, listening to Art Bell, late into the night, was an experience. It was like entering another dimension of time and space, all by way of my Realistic DX-440.

Thanks Art! You were & are The King of Late Night Radio.

It was exciting times back then. We had C2C, The X-Files, the internet was just coming online to the public.

Now, we can poentially be jailed for poisting things on the internet, Art's dead and anyone worthy of doing a similar show isn't. I guess at least there was an X-Files reboot. Welcome to the new world order!

R.I.P. Art  :'( :'( :'(

I just heard the news. So many great moments

Area 51 call,

Every ghost to ghost

The way he would question Hoagland when he would go off the deep end.

I can't think of any more right now there's just so many. I spent like 3 years listening to him every day at my old job.

Weird person open lines- guy who said he liked to collect people’s toe nail clippings. The guy who liked to follow ants to see what they were up to.

Open lines- men in black callers

It will always be the Human Waste Chilli Maker...



But, honestly, I always loved the Ghost to Ghost and NYE shows. I ended up finding Art around 2002 (Same time I found Phil Hendrie), and while he wasn't hosting full time, he was great.

I spent one day listening to nothing but Phil Hendrie do Art Bell.  Good times!  ;D

I hope Art's in a better place than we are.

How could he help not being? He’s not on Bellgab.

Where are those EVP people -- Brandon and that other lady? I always loved his shows with them and WE NEED THEM NOW!

                                               THESE WERE MY FAVORITE SHOWS TOO!  I ALSO LIKED JOHN LEAR AND BOB LAZAR...

The man could read the phone book and make it interesting.

Haven't been around here for a while, decided to stop by when I saw the news.

RIP Art




i only have the most recent come back to go on..so i think it was the NDT one..was entertaining

What ever happened to Sardondi?  Does anyone know?




I appreciate your appreciation of Art.  My very savvy 92 year old mother-in-law introduced me to Art in 1994.

What ever happened to Sardondi?  Does anyone know?
He quit. I see his comments on instapundit.com frequently.



For Art:



Thanks for the ride! Godspeed on the rest of yours.

West of the Rockies...Late night road trips listening to Art...as one station faded out, we quickly tuned to another...KOMO, KOH, KGO, KNX, etc..(over 500 affiliates!)

One especially strange night I remember driving from Ely, NV on the “Lonliest Highway” (US 50) listening to Art interview this creepy woman who was an I AMer(?). It was pitch dark when we heard helicopters above us but could not see them, they had no lights! Theater of the mind and beyond—an audio Twilight Zone.

Seamlessly, Art could scare me to death one minute and make me laugh the next. Listening to Art I learned to expect the unexpected. Edge of your seat stuff, I don't know how he did it night after night and maintain his genuine enthusiasm for Live radio. And when he dissapeared during a break, you wondered: did he go out on his deck for a smoke/toke and fall off cause the deck wasn’t there; glue his lips together; get shot at by a stalker???... Ah, I miss Art.

AM radio is now a wasteland, full of yammering idiots, it’s only good for baseball and local disasters. For me Art Bell represented the best (and the end) of an era.


If you've never heard the Phil Hendrie parodies of Art's Coast 2 Coast they are hilarious and I bet Art loved them.

Area 51, MIB, Shadow People and the AntiChrist line to name a few. Malachi Martin too. So many great ones. I bet a lot of you, like me, are bumping some Art Bell in their head phones today and last night. Oh and Patsy. Lol. That lady was nuts!
