Art Bell “The King of Alternative and Late Night Talk is Back”!
We are so excited. The official forum for the New Show Midnight In The Desert and All things Art Bell can be found here BellGab.com As well a co-host or pitch hitter called (REDACTED) from BellGab seems to be along for the ride.
“Wanna Take a Ride?”
Last Tuesday Bell participated in a Reddit Ask Me Anything. Although most of the questions were about past interviews and other paranormal topics, he did field some about his new show, and radio in general.
Responding to a question about what inspired him to get into radio, Bell said that he got started with ham radio at age 12, and was on commercial broadcast by 13.
First radio job, small FM on top of a mountain in Franklin, NJ. Religious FM. Read the news every hour. Station manager didn’t like people too close to the mic. So he’d come in and yank the chair out from under you while live on the air!
And, certainly to the delight of his fans, Bell also made clear his opinion on the condition of his old show Coast to Coast AM. “I think the current host of that show does it a disservice,” he said. “The current state of that program is the genesis for Midnight in the Desert. HaTTiP
