Our newest feature for Coast Insiders, The Art Bell Vault, offers an expanding curated collection with two vintage shows added to the mix each Wednesday. This week, we showcase a pair of unique programs wherein Art was joined on the air by members of his family. First, we journey back to a classic episode from 5/26/1997 in which Art and his wife Ramona Bell recount a dramatic UFO sighting that they had experienced a few days earlier while watching a high-altitude military aircraft in the Nevada desert. Later in the program, Wisconsin television station manager John McKinnon revealed how he was fired because he did a serious interview with a UFO abductee.
Next, we highlight a truly one-of-a-kind program from February 2nd, 1996 featuring Art interviewing his mother, who was visiting him in Pahrump at the time. Dubbed 'Ma Bell,' by Art, she answered listener questions, shared stories about what Art was like as a little boy, and talked about her time as a Marine drill sergeant. In the first half of the program, author Krsanna Duran detailed her research into crop circles, the Mayan calendar & 2012, and eclipses.
These vintage programs have commercials and breaks removed and are presented in multiple-platforms-- available on-demand for Mac, Windows, IOS, and Android. Many of them feature rare "5th" hours of content from back in the 90s when the show had a longer running time. We do include Art's beloved bumper music, which became such an indelible part of his program.
And for the true Art Bell fan, we offer different listening options to fine-tune your experience, such as guest only, and full show streams. Coast Insiders, we're very happy to bring this new offering to you at no additional charge to your subscription! We welcome your feedback.
