In honor of Art Bell's 60th birthday, the first hour of Friday's show featured special guest call-ins who shared stories and sent Art their Happy Birthday wishes. Dr. Roger Leir said Art has made a "huge contribution to human knowledge on this planet." Linda Moulton Howe recalled her days working with Art on Dreamland and Coast, and said he "taught her to love radio." Evelyn Paglini called Art a "beacon of light in the darkness." Dannion Brinkley credited Art with saving his life, introducing him to his wife, and teaching him about the power of prayer. Other guest call-ins included Sean David Morton, Major Ed Dames, Richard Hoagland, and Alan Corbeth. George also read a letter submitted by Michio Kaku.
