It's wild, isn't it? I have been listening to a lot of old shows since Art died and am finding the very same things.

I can't remember the exact episode, but there is one where Art is discussing technology with Howard Rheingold.  They were talking about NSA and government surveillance right after the 9/11 attacks.  This was back when Art supported mass govt surveillance to catch terrorists and Howard mentioned how the NSA could be abused by allowing a current president to spy on his political opponents, which is exactly what happened to Trump in 2016.

Howard Rheingold also discusses how text messaging was taking off in Asia, and then goes on to predict that the next "computer revolution" would be with mobile handheld devices (of course now known as "smartphones"). 

It's pretty incredible considering that this was way before the iPhone.  Some of Art's shows are truly prophetic.  Just like how Terrence McKenna predicted jokingly in the 90's about how in the future you could "become god through the public utilities"...  long before broadband internet and virtual reality was available... cool shit.

Truly magical radio.

Yep, and this is why Art's shows are so timeless.  Terrence McKenna also predicted that "driving to the office is so retro"... in the fucking 90s.  He predicted that the internet would eventually allow people to work remotely back when the concept was nearly unimaginable to most people, probably even Art himself.

Kinda makes you wish you could call back into those 90's show as a time traveler. :D

It absolutely does make me wish I could do that! I love those open lines shows as well. Art was a brilliant broadcaster.  :)

I wonder if Airyn gets it.

Remember when I said on the GabCast that I had all of these messages Art sent to people but they never went anywhere because Art kept replying to the "You've got a personal message" notification email?  Well, I've gone ahead and forwarded all of those along to the intended recipients.  What a job that was.

If someone's email had changed since Art sent those would you have sent to the person's updated address or the old one?

Art specifically informed me that he never liked you and had no intention of communicating with you.  I'm sorry.

So it looks like the rabid fans are rejoicing with news of HW's return in a week and reruns the next 5 days (with no guest host show tonight).

Anyone who wants Hoagie's Art tribute show with Howard Hughes, send me a PM (if you already have access to my Dropbox share it's in the folder "Art Bell Tributes").

Gotta wonder about that C. Crane catalog with Asia and her "I love radio" design.

Why do they need to "donate a dollar for her future?"

Jus' wond'rin'

Yeah a whole dollar from a $25 t-shirt sale. She may get a textbook out of it.
