Art Bell w6obb Guest Hosts on C2C

Last night, Art Bell, w6obb, was the Guest Host on C2C AM; he filled in for George Noory.

I must admit that I have missed the last couple of times he has done this. I was looking forward to hearing that 'oh so familiar, in the night' voice.

Was I disappointed!

Is Major Ed Dames, who has seldom ever been ‘right’ with any of his predictions, the only Guest that will go on Broadcast Radio with Art?

And that dulcet, ‘in the night’ Art Bell voice that I listened to for years, am finely attuned too, is gone. Have age and stopping smoking taken their tolls on Art Bell’s famous voice?

Art Bell not only has ‘voice issues’; his timing is way off. He sounded arrogant, forced, stressed, and hurried. So, I would assume that Broadcast Radio is NOT like riding a bicycle; though with both, after a long period of not doing it, you are not going to be very proficient…

Give it up Art, and really retire, before you make an even bigger fool of yourself.

It will be interesting to hear what other long-term listeners thought! Chime in, give us your opinions of last night's c2c show!

ADDENDUM: I wonder if Art Bell did last night's c2c show for free, pro bono? He seems to expect that I should work for free...

I have to agree Evvy, he sounded
bored to me, and the show all around was boring. Same old tripe all over again. To me it was a repeat broadcast updated to todays times. Ed was his same old game, gloom and doom with no proven facts to back up a dam thing he says. Just a Doom Sayer. Art seemed to be just there to kill time, no sincere interest in his own show. The fire of past has gone out. Was a waste of time to listen to.
