Quote from: minnehan on December 30, 2010, 05:45:17 PMLots of postings here recently are written like riddles. Is there ANYONE here that REALLY knows something specific about this situation, or is everything here pure speculation?
Quotemy source has told me that all affiliates have demanded and recieved an "out", if Art returns to the air with his own competitor show, they can drop George Noory's version of Coast with just one week's warning
Quote from: ArtBellFan on December 28, 2010, 04:36:11 PMThere is another dynamic here, this is contract time and it may be that Art and Clear Channel could not come to an agreement, or I should say maybe CC wouldn't give Art what he wants.
Quote from: Fort Rock on December 30, 2010, 04:19:38 PMI just got off the telephone with someone who would be in the know. As many here remember Art talking about a Pahrump friend of his named Karen. Karen Jackson is the lady Art sold KNYE-FM to, before he left to Manila. I had a very short conversation to ask her about the situation, and I got the distinct impression she knows plenty, and isn't talking. I got a major media "I've got some information, but no comment at this time" type of response. She was also very shut down on saying anything more than "no" with the above attitude. Top this off with the inability to get an email response from Whitley or Ann Strieber within a 24-hour period, when I've never had this problem before regardless of time of year, also I've tried a couple more times to reach Alan Corbeth without luck. Something is going on, and we're facing I think a serious information blackout, as in something is going on right now they cannot talk or comment, for fear of tipping off the Coast Production Office. Also as to the affiliate contract issue, my source has told me that all affiliates have demanded and recieved an "out", if Art returns to the air with his own competitor show, they can drop George Noory's version of Coast with just one week's warning! I think George is facing a major nightmare, THAT'S my Ian Punnett prediction for 2011! But I don't think they'd let that one on the air, do you suppose?
Quote from: AthenaDelphi on December 30, 2010, 08:22:56 PM Then this year he only did 5 shows and that last one was pre-screened? Art never pre-screens his calls. I thought that was strange.
Quote from: mib12890 on December 30, 2010, 04:34:24 PMSo if you think Art is collaborating with these people in some way to create a new radio program, do you think he will move back to Pahrump or stay in Manila? I'm sure he still has all of his satelllite uplink/studio equipment at his house, so he wouldn't have to fool with setting all of that up again.
Quote from: coastfan on December 30, 2010, 09:14:32 PMNIN- I seem to recall Art specifically stating multiple times on his predictions shows last year that he was taking unscreened calls. I think he's done unscreened calls on other shows from Manila, too. However, I also recall very cleary Art doing a show from the Phillipines with screened calls, due to technical problems, in his explanation.
Quote from: NIN on December 30, 2010, 10:12:16 PMMaybe Art is in Pahrump getting ready to sign over any (if any) power that he has left for Coast to Coast to George. :-/
Quote from: EvZe on December 30, 2010, 07:41:22 PMSorry, but this doesn't sound the least bit believable. I know everyone here is a C2CAM fan and so forth, but it seems rather incredible 600+ PDs have all made multi-year contingency plans about their - in some cases (in EST) - 2AM to 6AM time-slot. No offense, bro, but if your source is a retired U.S. Army major whose name rhymes with "Ted James" you may want to think twice about how much stock you put in him ... Besides, since C2CAM is sold on barter I'd assume anyone could drop it on one week - or one day's - warning anyway, and for any reason? Maybe not, that's pure speculation ...
Quote from: Fort Rock on December 31, 2010, 02:32:01 PMAll I'll say is this was the dullest, most bland predictions first show I have ever heard! Ian Punnett has probably made a 1000 points as to why Art is coming back. Art must have been laughing his head off, or crying at the inept performance he's heard! They need to make a Gilligan's Island remake with George Noory as the Skipper, and Ian Punnett as Gilligan, oh and Richard C. Hoagland as the Professor, Linda Moulton Howe as Mary Ann, Gerald Celente as Thurston Howell III, we're short Ginger Grant, and Lovey Howell! This was the deal maker for affiliates as to why they NEED Art Bell!

None of them can ever be named! Art Bell doesn't have friends...I assumed most people would innately understand, but apparently I have to use a parable - so I'll give it a try.We could probably agree that Art Bell has millions of fans - fans who would also naturally be interested if Art were no longer associated with C2C ...*****************************************************Art, is that you?Just kidding.How do you know my father?
