Regarding open lines, I distinctly remember Art conducting such a broadcast from the Phillipines sometime post-retirement in which he explained that the calls would not be answered until he put the caller on the air, for which reason callers would have to let the phone ring until he answered---in order to save callers from paying exorbitant long distance and/or cell phone bills.

I, too, hear the Voice whenever an Art Bell bumper tune comes on.

Here's a link to Roger Tolces' website with some info on Hughes. What he descibes in this article is about the same as what he told Art Bell on November 16, 2003 (rebroadcast November 28, 2004). Art himself admits in that show to being a big Hughes, uh, "fan", if you can call it that.

Roger Tolces once supplied a sound system for Hughes to use in his suite at the Desert Inn, watching old movies.

The Drosnin show we're talking about aired on January 16, 2005.

Knapp's interview with Gary Magnesen and Melvin Dummar aired on August 24, 2008 and was rebroadcast on March 31, 2010.

Yeah, good show. The Art Bell interview with Michael Drosnin who wrote Citizen Hughes was good, too. And that's a good book if you're into Hughes. I posted on this a while back, if anybody wants to search for it. I haven't heard Knapp interviewing Michael Drosnin. If that show exists, I need it.

I hope you're right, Ft. Rock. My hopes are up.

And yes, you absolutely NEED the bumper music for the true C2C experience. I can't stand how they cut it out on the official C2C downloads.

Does anybody remember when Ian used to read mail from his listeners at the beginning of the show? Maybe it was only on CC Live, but it was kinda fun.

MaLaCoiD, Sorry I can't take your suggestion, but there's a major flaw in that format, and it's the hour at the end. That way could cause the four hours of a show to get out of order if the topics and guests are different throughout the show.    So I think the hour should come right after the date. Other than that, the format you promote is fairly decent, if a bit long. I like the shorter way (anagrammy's, awguy, mine) because it's much easier to deal with on a little mp3 player with slowly scrolling titles, and in a file browser.

So, I always rename my files to my preferred format.

My one suggestion to anybody would be to PLEASE put the name of the HOST in the filename so we'll know who to ignore.

I think he left the pause in deliberately so that all the high people out there could listen to the spaced-out echoey bumper music and go, "Whoa, did he just say that on the air, man...?"

Onan I think you are onto something with your surrender theory. To me, religion is basically bullshit that comes in different flavors that a mass of people agree to believe in for the sake of social cohesion or fulfillment of personal/psychological/emotional needs. Coming from a christian church background myself, I can say that it's hard but not impossible to resist the subtle pressure around you to become religious, and easy to espouse religious views or join a church and go casually in order to get the pressure off of you. You learn to change the subject. Politely.

Religion is something where you have to take a leap of faith. There's no proof for the claim that god exists. If there was, then there would be no need to believe. You don't "believe" in physical reality. It just exists.

« on: February 16, 2011, 02:36:53 PM »
Art interviewed author Michael Drosnin on January 16, 2005. Both books were discussed, The Bible Code and Citizen Hughes. The Hughes book was based on a trove of handwritten memos from Hughes to his real-world representative Bob Maheu, at time when Hughes was living in seclusion at the Desert Inn in Las Vegas, communicating to Maheu through the memos and by telephone, Hughes only having physical contact with a handfull of personal assistants, all Mormons because the germ-obsessed Hughes took Mormons for the cleanest people he could find. The memos were stolen and Drosnin somehow tracked them down and used them as source material for his book. Fascinating stuff. Hughes was prolific and lucid, writing memos to Maheu (and others) on everything from how to wash one's hands before opening a can of fruit to be served ("A minimum of fifteen Kleenexes will be used to turn on the light switch... before washing one's hands... the can will be held at a 45-degree angle...") to Las Vegas real estate deals to bribing LBJ into stopping the Nevada nuclear testing to bribing Nixon during the campaign in 1968. The bribe might have been what triggered Watergate, in that the paranoid Nixon was afraid there was evidence of the Hughes bribe in that safe. A fascinating book and show, if you're into Howard Hughes.

I have the show and I'll try to link to it soon. It's also available as part of the massive streamlink torrent on demonoid.

That works, too. It's really bad when you run across a show that starts with the month spelled, then the show, and no host name. I mean, if it's GN I'm not going to download it unless it's an interesting topic or guest, but I don't know until I go to the Coast site and look it up. It's aggravating. I've been  trying different programs to edit the metadata: exfalso, easytag, and some others. I often copy files to a small mp3 player and I like to keep the tags straight for that, too.

Archive of Old Threads / filename format for archiving shows
« on: February 02, 2011, 09:50:13 PM »
I've been downloading shows from various sources, and the filename formats are all different from each source, the result being that when I pull up all my shows in my file browser, they're out of order chronologically or by show or by host or whatever. It's aggravating. So I've been renaming them and filing them away with the aim of uploading them via torrent. Here's my format and let me know what you think:

showname.year.month.day.host.hour x of x hours.topic.guest.mp3

They fall nicely into chronological order if they're all in one directory, and they don't get split by host or guest or topic. Notice I'm putting the 'hour x of x hours' BEFORE the topic and guest. If they go after, the show sometimes appears out of hourly order if different topics or guests on different hours of the same show.

For example:

cc.1995.09.14.ab.1-4.Flying Saucer Technology. Stan Deyo.ST-2008-09-27.mp3
cc.1995.09.14.ab.2-4.Flying Saucer Technology.Stan Deyo.SIT-2008-09-27.mp3
cc.1995.09.14.ab.3-4.Ozone Hole. Pat. Open Lines.SIT-2008-09-27.mp3
cc.1995.09.14.ab.4-4.Open Lines.SIT-2008-09-27.mp3

I don't count on Art coming back to Coast, ever. I think he's probably had it with the show, and this time he probably really is winding down and wanting to devote more time to his family. As for coming back to Pahrump, did Airyn like it there? Are they willing to risk U.S. Immigration, again? Also, I think Anagrammy's theory about Art finally being through grieving for Ramona is plausible. She was a big part of the show behind the scenes.

Art has moved one.

 I would love to hear more Hughes material. I don't think Knapp ever followed up on his last Melvin Dumar show.

Have you hear the Art Bell show with Michael Drosnin? He's the author who got hold of Hughes' memos to his henchman Bob Maheu and wrote a fascinating book about it. At least it's fascinating if you find Hughes fascinating.

  Thanks MV. Some of this music I remember from the late 70s, in elementary school, riding the school bus, the driver had a stereo system installed in the bus, speakers up front and back, AM/FM/8-Track.

BOC-A few years ago, I pulled up some of their recent performances via YouTube. Has anybody noticed that ever since that SNL episode that in concert that (real) band's drummer REALLY plays the hell out of the cowbell during Don't Fear the Reaper?

    What is the name of that song Art used to play? Late 70s, heavy beat. "Well, I think that it's time we get ready/To rely on the things we have...."     I forget the rest of it. 

There was another song, "Driver's Seat". Really eerie, even creepier than "Some Velvet Morning".

Art used to play "Don't Fear the Reaper", but how about "Burnin' For You"?

Did he ever play that other song by Gerry Rafferty? Not "Baker Street", but "On Down the Line" or "All Down the Line".

Did he ever play "Space Cowboy" by the Steve Miller Band. Not "The Joker" but the actual, earlier song specifically titled "Space Cowboy"?

Well it looks as though they have.

Anomalies Audio Archive has posted this "Goodbye Coast to Coast people. All Coast related files go offline at the end of the month."

Come on people cancel those C2C streamlink subscriptions !!

I get the impression it could be that Don of Anomolous either was contacted by "Coast to Coast" people from Clear Channel, or is being cautious after they contaced MV, OR is already fed up with some asinine comments on the Anomalies site.

However, I think there seem to be other sources of Classic shows popping up.

I let my subscription lapse at least six months ago. Never really could get the hang of hearing Coast without the bumper music. Hey, I'm the kind of person who can walk into a supermarket, hear Gordon Lightfoot singing "Sundown" over the PA, and wait for him to finish the first chorus before reciting some Ross Mitchell to myself.

The caller asked George Knapp if he knew anything about the rumors of Art quitting coast. Knapp replied that it wasn't a rumor, Noory having announced last month that it was Art's decision, that everyone at Coast regretted it, and that the door was open for Art any time he wanted to return. Knapp sounded believable, to me at least, until I can listen to it again.
