    I listened to Art for a long time and found his show fascinating! Since George Norey took over, it just hasn't been the same. Really going to miss Art! Jeff AK6OK

    Art was a citizen scientist and never personally believed in any of the paranoid, conspiratorial, supernatural, etc B.S. that he talked about on his radio show. It was strictly for entertainment value and of course ad revenue.

    But I do have to say that allot of science dumbed down people did believe (and still do) allot of what was bantered about on the show. But who's to say if he added to their number or not?!

    For me personally the number of science dumbed down people out there nowadays is just absolutely shocking. And then there are the many who don't have critical thinking skills and no common sense.

    Just sayin'.

    His show was aimed at stupid people that didn't know he well selling utter nonsense. I'm sure Art didn't buy any of it himself, but he did make a buck doing it, and I'm sure he had a good time. There are A LOT of folks that ate that nonsense up with a spoon. That is a rather sad reflection of the failures in our education system.

    Like others that worked the over-night shifts, I also listened to Art all the time for many years. He was a real entertainer and provided many interesting interludes. In short, he helped me stay awake. Now I'm trying to recall the other paranormal radio personality, was it Laura or times.

    Once upon a time I struggled through dark times. I often spent my long nights with Art as did many of you. He was a big help to me during those days. I am grateful to have received his influence over the air waves. RIP good friend.

    Sorry to hear of Art's passing. I spent a lot of late nights listening to the banter, mostly on 3840, and occasionally, when band conditions permitted, I checked in briefly from my Ohio QTH. His always-strong signal was testament to the notion that if you hang enough wire high enough, you can get great results. He convinced me that, when deciding how much to invest in a station and where to invest it, the antenna system should get first priority. Radio was intrinsic to his DNA. I've a feeling he's already working on a way to get back on the air from wherever he now resides. RIP, Art.

    Good Bye Art, You kept me on the edge of my seat and many times I would time my work load to be out of
    my truck only during a commercial break when time would permit. I hated to miss any live show of yours.
    Mad man Marcum was one of my favorites. They were all fantastic with you as the host.
    Glad I got to talk to you once or twice on 75 meters. I have it recorded here on my PC.
    Purchased a CD once from you and it was great.

    Talking to you in present tense because I feel you are probably out there listening / HI HI .... ..

    My point was that Art, as a professional radio guy, went as far into having the best audio in a ham radio station as well. I too enjoyed his night time show and Art loved those bazaar phone calls, faces on Mars etc. It could be entertaining and far different from most radio of the day.
