Art Bell Vault: Historic Figures

article's image

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's offerings showcase a pair of programs wherein guests discussed the lives of historic figures, beginning with a fascinating edition of the program from 1/6/2005 in which Art spoke to author Michael Drosnin about reclusive billionaire Howard Hughes. He discussed how the business magnate had influence within a number of different worlds, such as the intelligence community as well as the mafia, and details the billionaire's infamous descent into madness.

Next, we journey back to May 16th 2004, for an episode wherein Art was joined by Dr. Michio Kaku for a conversation about the life and work of Albert Einstein. He shared insights into how an examination of the famed physicist's brain revealed that the portion of the organ responsible for abstract thought was particularly thick. Kaku theorized that this occurred over the course of Einstein's life and argued that it is an indication that perhaps genius is not an inherent trait at birth, but something that can be developed. During his appearance, Kaku also talked about time travel, UFO evidence, String Theory, global dimming, and the Many Worlds Theory.

These vintage programs have commercials and breaks removed and are presented in multiple-platforms-- available on-demand for Mac, Windows, IOS, Android, and the Coast app. 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.
