Come on, man, I've never worked a day in my life in broadcasting, but even I know the concept of social and professional currency. Back then, a kind word from you was worth something in the world of woo, especially from the king of night radio, and especially to somebody trying to get in. No financial pressure, my ass, more like financial incentive (keep getting that royalty check every month!).

Yes I did it as a professional courtesy, I was at that point Retiring and did not get a penny for it, there was no reason not to be professional about it. I only knew he had been working in the field and agreed to say it at the request of the boss at that time.

I would say some people are just sick, my Ramona had no Life Insurance nor did I, I still have none. Has this board come to the point that you all have nothing better to do than sit around and make sick stuff up? That's just sad because at one point it used to be fun in here, a little rough at times but fun most of the time, that's why I liked it, I don't mind jabs, as a Public person you have to get used to that but this mean spirited personal and Family stuff is too much, at this point I may not be back for some time, to those few who had nice things to say....thank you, for the others.... ...

Just to be clear I never said I was under any financial pressure to say "George gets it". Go back and check the posts, it's funny how things posted here get inflated with time. I was Retiring and only knew that George had been doing a Paranormal show th St Louis. I was asked to say that by the Boss to help him launch, that's all. No financial pressure at all. I think once somebody says "Fake News" enough times people start to believe it. As I said go back and check the posts.

This is the first time I have been here in a long time and I see the hate just keeps coming, I will never the less continue to be a member here and will check in every now and then to see if anything has changed.

I have also now reported this to the FBI Cyber Division.


For the record if this is the guy and he is caught and convicted and it turns out I owe anybody a reward I will pay it as I said I would.

Well I have again called the Police because while all the other garbage can be ignored easily, that message seems like a admission and a threat.

I don't come here a lot because I want need or am seeking praise or ass kissing, that's the last damn thing I would expect from Bell Gab. I came here because I like the rough and tumble atmosphere in this group and have made many of my own contributions over the Years. I can give every bit as good as I get, But i just am not going to unmask people and go after their lives and Family's. I use my real name and almost nobody else does, I guess for fear of the above stuff happening to them?

I have never lied about anything including the Stalker stuff that did happen exactly as I told you it did. I have made mistakes in judgement with respect to my career which I think I have admitted here and elsewhere, I am many things but a liar is not one of them.

I do have COPD which is something that kind of sneaks up on you over time, it is not so bad that I could not do a show if I decided to do so. I did get a very serious case of pneumonia which set me back big time but I am for the moment pretty much ok.

At the expense of drawing fire I will say again that Heather is miles and miles better in the last Year and that is my Professional judgment, it is also the Judgment of many people I respect. It seems to me that the people in this forum should be proud of her, she was after all one of us.

That is a bit of a update for those who need ammo.

Hi there happy people. It really amazes me how so many people can be so unhappy so much of the time. I am just living my life day by day and try and spend it as happy as I can be. Hanging out here for whatever abuse I can absorb is not part of happy (for the most part). If people were nicer I am sure I would visit more frequently, I loved the old Bell Gab. If it is simply a place to harp on everything I do or say then why not just remove it from the site? Trust me it will not hurt my feelings a bit. On the other hand, why not try being more positive and I bet the Membership would rise and people like me would visit much more. I could live with either one but this stuff is just getting boring (the biggest sin in radio)

In a hundred years, people will dig up your old interviews with people like Malachi Martin, Matthew Alper, Michio Kaku, etc. and, for various reasons, still listen in the same way that people still subscribe to Roku channels and listen to radio from the 40's and 50's because it was compelling. Compelling is compelling and nostalgia is powerful.

Historians will also look at people like Limbaugh or Hannity to get a pulse for how things were politically in this age, but that will grow less and less important as time goes on. Savage on the other hand has been nothing but inconsistent ideologically across his life and relies on a kind of sensationalism to keep interest. That is a short-lived model. In 30 years no one will remember who he was.

Yes, things live on the internet forever, generally, but you still need people that give a shit and Savage's audience won't when he's gone.

Thank you for the kind words and I pray you are right. I am truly sick in my heart over all the Years of trash my Family has endured because of my Career, Savage being just the latest. I understand coming after me, at least when I was a active Public figure but this came after I have been off air for over a Year, why? Just pure mean spirit? Just sick of it all.

First time poster. Long time listener.

Hi Mr. Bell. Would love to hear you back on the air sometime. Ignore the haters.


I do try to ignore the haters, I am aware of the Slander from the Jerk who hides behind the name "the one" if anybody knows his true name and can prove it please let me know and I will go after him.

It is depressing to me that I have to go after Savage for what he said, but saying that about my Wife on a National show was just over the top, I never had any dealings with the Man, good or bad so it just came out of the blue. This has been under way for some time, we first gave him a chance to just retract what he said and after a long time had no choice but to file. This crap lives on the Internet forever. We no longer live in a civil society in my opinion.

Still rocking myself to sleep every night waiting for your return.


Always seems to be the big question everybody asks, I am sure I will pop in every now and then. I would just say it will be a surprise perhaps as much for me as you all. Been pretty busy with Family and life in general which includes the Lawsuit I filed with regard to the disgusting remarks made by Savage. I would have settled for a retraction which I requested and did not receive. It's something I felt I had to do for my Wife who is beyond a good person and did not deserve any of it. Yes he did not use my name but he might as well have, everybody seemed to know exactly who he meant. Now it will Play out, truly the last thing in the World I wanted to do, everybody should understand the price of fame is high indeed but it should not fall on my Family, I felt I had no choice but to respond.

Otherwise I am doing a lot of Quad flying and trying to exercise and build myself up, that Pneumonia really was rough on me.

Good Evening from Pahrump. Thought I would stop in as I do every now and then and say hi. All is well in the Kingdom of Nye. How are things going here?

My opinion is that Man IS part of Climate change. Don't fret over Trump, he only said what he did about Climate change because he was running as a Republican. He is really very much in the center as you will see as time goes on. I think he has a real chance to get things done for a change with a Republican House and Senate. I was a believer from the start as many of you must know.

I don't think I have been teasing anybody about coming back on the air. I have lots to keep me busy at home as you will soon understand. I have warm memories of a very long career.

There was no ill will intended, as I mentioned I check in here every now and then to take the temperature and see if I can have a conversation with anybody but I read the page and it did not look promising so I will check back and if I am not being bashed I will engage with anybody who will have a decent thing to say. Not wanting to give up on Bell Gab as I said Months ago.

Hi there, I thought I would do my every now and then check in to see if there is a atmosphere that was inviting to have a conversation with what used to be my friends, it does not look that way so I will try again in the future.

have fun going bankrupt from medical costs

At my age you see I have Medicare and I have part F as well so there are no out of pocket costs, of course as we all know the U.S. Gov't will indeed go broke sooner or later and it seems to be leaning
to sooner.

Hello everybody, just a quick update on me. I have had a rough patch. I spent five days at the Hospital in Las Vegas with a really bad case of pneumonia which left me so damn weak I could not put on my own socks, Dr said it was a close call and I agree. It has now been a Month since my last meds and I have been trying to excersise every day to get stronger, it seems to be working, I am slowly getting stronger. I have had pneumonia before but nothing like this, it hit fast and really hard.

I remember the Dr asked what Insurance I had and I replied crappy Gov't Insurance to which he said ok, I will try and find a crappy Surgeon who will accept your crappy Insurance! Other then that it is amazing how much I don't remember about that Week, could be do to the Morpine. My Wife spent every minute with me with no break, she is the best Woman any Man could ever hope for as a Wife.

I still miss being able to do a show and will do some when I can, I guess that passion will never leave me till I make the final transition. Anyway that's about it for now.

Correct, it's not about me, it's about ideas. They are much more exciting. Trump is anything but a traditional Politician, careful about writing him off to soon.

Yes, Trump is tanking in the Polls now and he may have cooked his own goose with the crap about the Judge, BUT this is June not November and he has been counted out many times before. If I were Clinton I would not yet count my eggs.

It's strange to me that some people can not square the on air person with the more recent me based either on my most recent air work or posts I may have made. It may well be that people have selective memories. Before I did Paranormal I did Politics and through it all and before I was even on air I am just another person, like and unlike everybody else.

I have hated some of the things Trump has said but I will still vote for him before the awful Clinton. Try and guess what Americs will look like after four or God help us, eight Years of Clinton. After that many Years of Supreme Court picks. What will be left of us? What will be left of the Bill of Rights?

We only have two choices in the real World, I am at heart Libertarian but I am also a realist, one of these two will be it. Trump has to straighten his ass up and become Presidential or we are doomed.

So wait, first it was a crazed gunman, then his health, now it's because the subject matter has gone stale?  I'm starting to wonder about Art's credibility!

And if he thinks the topics are boring and played-out, try listening to Heather. WOOF.

I did not say they were boring or played out. Pretty sure I said that when I turned to the Paranormal I was pretty much alone, now everybody is doing it with the same Guests pretty much on show after show. I think i also noted there have not been many big incidents in recent Years.

Why do people put words in other people's mouths?

Hi again, I thought I would take a moment to agree with what some of you have said. For example I feel that yes things have changed, when I moved the show from boring Politics to the Paranormal I was pretty much alone, now the field is like a LA drive time traffic jam which has diluted the airwaves with Paranormal Radio to the point that Guests are simply saying the same stuff over and over on show after show, I prefer opening new ground, not plowing the same ground again and again. Also complicating the field is that there frankly is not much new, nothing like the big days of big sightings and good abduction stories. It has pretty much dried up. It is still more interesting then Politics with the possible exception of this Year.

Some are wondering why I have not spent much time on Ham radio, read this recent article for more info.....http://www.sacbee.com/news/local/article81740737.html

I still love the big questions in life like what comes next if anything, how did we get here, what might take us out and so much more.

I am afraid I don't have any good crazy vacation stories. I only called Heather because it seemed to fit into her topic which I knew from listening! Why in the World would any of you think I don't? Not every moment of every show of course but I have been trying to give her help and advice which is not really possible if I don't listen.

When I had to go off I am the one who asked her to give it a shot and it just so happened that she had the stuff and the guts to give it a shot or there would have been dead air. Of course it was a rough start but I think any fair person has to admit she has come a million miles from that first show. And while of course the number of subs fell off they have now started to rise so not everybody hates her.
