m so happy to have found this forum!
I've been listening to Coast to Coast since the early days and remember when every night was filled with the genius that was Art Bell. Nobody could pull me in and keep me listening like Art could - and still can. He has a unique way of making almost any topic interesting. Not only that, but the bumper music totally rocked, the unscreened calls from listeners kept me on the edge and the guests were a wide and eclectic mix.
When Noory came on board to take the helm, I gave him a shot, but it wasn't long before my attention began to wane. After years of being a long time Coast to Coast listener I thought it was just me; that I wasn't quite "getting it," that I'd somehow lost interest in the show. Then, Art came back to host one night and I realized it wasn't me afterall - it was George. The difference between the interview styles, the way George and Art interact with guests and callers, the way the entire show flows, is like night and day and while no two people do things the same way, Noory is just a horrible host.
It was then that I understood my beloved Coast to Coast had been hijacked by someone who just didn't seem to have the passion or the talent to carry it forward.
So, I'm glad to be here; I'm glad to find like-minded Coast to Coast fans who miss a good show and who know George is simply running it into the ground.
