Remembering Art Bell-Radio Stories-Legends-Podcast 714

Radio legend Art Bell passed away on Friday, April 13th 2018. Bell’s show, Coast To Coast, was creative and unique. Time to talk about Art’s impact on me and reminisce about radio in Remembering Art Bell-Radio Stories-Legends-Podcast 714.

All Night Wonder

Many stayed up all night to listen to the show. Who got any work done when we stood around talking about Martians, ghosts, aliens living in the hollow earth or The End Of The World?

Saving AM Radio For A Time

These days, radio has become a wasteland of partisan political operatives shouting, cajoling, attempting to persuade. Many broadcasters have given Rush Limbaugh credit for ‘saving AM Radio’, and he certainly deserves his props. On the other hand, many forget that Art Bell probably had as much to do with resurrecting the AM Band for a short time during the 1990’s. For a kid from Chicago who spent summers sitting on the front steps all night listening to the radio, that meant something.

Creating A World You Could Never Forget

Furthermore, it isn’t the political shows I will remember from the past twenty years. It’s the Art Bell shows. The guy from Area 51. Father Malachi Martin. Gary North. Ed Dames and every other crazy person on that show. You knew it was nuts to believe this stuff. But when you’re rolling through the wastelands of Wisconsin at three in the morning, struggling to pull in a thousand watt AM station out of Rice Lake, it seems real. Because Bell was so good at creating a world where anything was possible and probably true.

For radio people, the ability to create a new world, using only spoken word, is truly significant.

The Broken Down Radio Station On The Edge Of Town

Art Bell had a big impact on me because he brought me back to my roots. The radio station in a corn field. On the edge of town. A single tower blinking red in the wilderness. The possibilities endless.

When The Guy On The Radio Was Your Best Friend

So it’s time to tell some stories. A tribute of sorts from someone, like many, who never knew Art Bell. As a listener we felt we he was our best friend. A throw back to the DJ’s of the 1960’s and 1970’s on the big AM stations in the big cities. Or to struggling to pull in a radio station with a big signal in a far away city.

A Voice In The Night

Most noteworthy is the fact that the experience of listening in the night is gone. Replaced with artless and amateur You Tube Channels predictIng the end of the world.

Making Magic

It is good to remember the magic that Art Bell created as a guide for podcasters. I doubt seriously radio will ever be able to accommodate a talent like Bell again.

Interview With An Antichrist-Podcast 666

Seems like there’s a lot of talk about the end of the world these days. The tribulation. The rise to power of the antichrist. No one knows who the antichrist is. Life is not all wine and roses for the guy cooling his heels in the wings. Join us for Interview With An Antichrist-Podcast 666.

Worse Than The End Of The World

We were all ready for the end on September 23rd, 2017. Now all the ‘experts’ say this date signaled the beginning of something called the tribulation period. At some point an entity known as The Antichrist will take over the world. All this is set down in various parts of the bible.

Being An Antichrist Is A High Pressure Job

One of the things you learn in Interview With An Antichrist-Podcast 666 is that there are apparently several ‘candidates’ vying for the job of antichrist. We talked to one of those candidates. In Interview With An Antichrist-Podcast 666.

Especially relevant is the fact that the antichrist’s reign ends with his destruction at the hands of the actual Christ who ushers in peace on earth; a virtual paradise for those who believe in Him. What’s it like to compete for a job that amounts to a suicide mission?

You Won’t Believe Where He Lives

On a recent dark night, before the rise of the moon, I traveled in Mobile Podcast Command to the home of an antichrist. I expected a gothic mansion. A slightly overgrown garden. The sound of wolves snarling as they patrolled the grounds. In fact this antichrist lives in a rather nondescript suburban home in the midwest. Find out why in Interview With An Antichrist-Podcast 666.

Life As An Antichrist

It’s time we put some meat on the bones of these foggy predictions. Who’s with the antichrist and who’s against him? When does all this happen? What is it like the be ‘the guy’? Would he ever ‘flip’ and join the Jesus team? Why are there so many dead rabbits in his yard?
