Art Bell Vault: Martian Anomalies & Montana Standoff

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 are a pair of classic programs, beginning with a fascinating show from 2/13/2003 wherein Art spoke to ufologist Michael C. Luckman about a curious Martian anomaly that, he argued, was an artificial structure similar to the iconic 'Face on Mars.' During his appearance, they also discussed other oddities on the Red Planet, if humanity may have originated on Mars, and the possibility that ETs could be a hostile rather than benign force.

Next, we journey back to May 22nd, 1996 for a Wild West-style Open Lines in which callers weighed in on the Montana Freemen, an anti-government group that was in the midst of a two-month-long armed standoff with the federal authorities. As one might imagine, opinions on the situation differed considerably, with some listeners decrying the organization and condemning their actions while others expressed support for the controversial group which eventually ended the impasse by surrendering to law enforcement around a month after the program aired.

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.
