Quote from: Art Bell on May 31, 2016, 07:58:48 PMHi everybody, just my quick check in to say hi to all. As you know, I think, I have had some health issues. Getting older is not for the faint of heart.Otherwise all is well. I read that some of you think my memory is slipping about the Master card story and it is not, I got a call about it on the show and as a result made calls to my own credit card company which happens to be Master Card with the results I related. While I do have some physical challenges I think the mind still chugs along ok, (of course if it was going into failure mode I might not know, I might not even care).Art
Quote from: MV on June 01, 2016, 03:18:27 AMHey, Art. Hope all is well.
Quote from: Art Bell on May 31, 2016, 09:36:01 PMSee you next time and thank for some good post's.Art
Quote from: FightTheFuture on June 01, 2016, 09:55:48 AMArt, I hope all the ABs are doing well. I miss you, brother, but I understand how things are. I think you should at least do a weekly audio blog or something. Just tell us what you think about things, or spin a little tale about your amazing career. Please think about it.God bless you and your wonderful family.[/quoteAgreed. Art can talk about anything and make it interesting. Hopefully, he can do a once or twice a month podcast just to share his thoughts about things.
Quote from: BelgianCarbonFibre on June 01, 2016, 03:30:21 AMWell, no, I recall you were relating someone else's story which encompassed that fan doing all the legwork you claim have done. It's in the Ultimate Torrent, maybe an Open Lines, maybe an interview day. Your memory probably isn't fading, but it doesn't have that eidetic edge, either.

Quote from: jaz on June 01, 2016, 09:55:20 PMNot Art. Line 2 and 3 of my post are unrelated.
Quote from: akwilly on June 01, 2016, 10:06:00 PMMy money is on SV being the cohost.
Quote from: ge30542 on June 01, 2016, 11:25:40 PMGeorge Noory might be special guest. Detailing how he has survived and remained the King of Late Night Radio.
Quote from: jaz on June 01, 2016, 11:30:36 PMCloser. Special cohost could also be gay. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
Quote from: Robert on June 01, 2016, 11:44:29 PMI think he might be interesting to listen to as an interviewee. He got into it w a guest maybe a week & a half back on his (Mr. Noory's) show about how he started & how difficult it was. Much like Ms. Wade's sink-or-swim beginning. I started feeling bad about all the criticism I've made of him. He is human after all. He's sounding more & more personable to me lately.No matter what, all of you people -- Mssrs. Bell, Noory, podcasters, Ms. Wade -- never forget that while we criticize you, we're the ones listening to you. You're not tuning in to us. (Well, sure, Art is, on the ham bands, but you know.) We criticize because each of you -- or at least all of you collectively -- have done stuff to make us smile, so we get used to your making us smile. We're not making you smile, which is good because it's hard for you to talk while you do that. And your sponsors are paying for you to make us smile, even though they know the great majority of us won't buy the things you advertise. What a great deal that is. And never get the idea you owe us anything more; it's not like you're sucking material out of our brains -- the worst you can do is simply stop adding new stuff to them.

Quote from: 73s on June 01, 2016, 09:44:22 AMGlad you still visit BG. Come back sooner rather than later.
Quote from: LucaParcelli on June 02, 2016, 11:34:22 PMSo, I've been naughty and I've been listening to some pirate streams of older Art Bell shows from the Clinton era. I'm nostalgic for Art's commentary about the Clintons and would love to hear him comment about how another Clinton is being taken down.Anyone else share these sentiments? I am in need of consolation.Praise MV, unceasingly.
Quote from: Value Of Pi on June 03, 2016, 12:09:34 AMI know how you feel, but even if Art were up to it, I doubt he would choose to go back on air. While he would always sound good next to a non-talent like Heather, there is someone out there I doubt he would want to compete with or be compared to -- and that's Art himself, in the days when he and the genre he perfected were in their prime.Art did great and innovative things for radio, but nothing is forever. While still satisfying in many ways over the last several years, his show was in serious need of reinvention and revitalization. It needed that either from Art himself or from an outside creative influence, like a very imaginative producer. It just didn't happen, either on Sirius or on DM.I think at some point someone will come along with a fresh way to tap into the subject matter and the audience that made Art's show so interesting and so much fun. It won't be a copycat and it won't be anyone anointed by Art to occupy his chair. He/she/they will come out of nowhere just the way Art did. It will happen naturally. And you'll know it when you hear it -- even though, at first, you might not understand what it is you're listening to. It will be magic, just a different kind than you were used to with Art.
