Art Bell Vault: Odd Open Lines

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 in which callers took center stage by way of their bizarre stories, beginning with a wild Open Lines episode from 10/21/1997 in which Art asked to speak to the "Weirdest Person in America." As one might imagine, the C2C listeners did not disappoint, revealing a bevy of odd personality quirks and strange lifestyles which, they believed, earned them the dubious honor.

Next, we journey back to January 7, 1999 for an amusing Open Lines edition of the program wherein Art provided a special hotline for callers to share their worst 'Date from Hell' stories. Listeners proceeded to detail a variety of unsettling meetings that ranged from strange to scary. Other callers during the evening of Open Lines opined about the then-newly launched International Space Station and expressed concern about the impending arrival of the year 2000.

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.
