Loved your show back when & still listening.
Heard it last night on Coast2Coast.George was choked up and so was the callers. Started listening in 1986. He changed my thinking on the paranormal and area 51..
It's somewhat ironic that he died on Friday the 13th. RIP, W6OBB.
Art Bell died April 13, 2018 at age 72 at his home in Pahrump, Nevada. An autopsy was scheduled for the following days to determine the cause of his death.
Bell had suffered from health problems in the previous years. He posted on his website in July 2016 that he was hospitalized for pneumonia and revealed at the time that he suffered from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease."
Sad news indeed.
His big signal and command of the English language will be missed. His AM broadcast career is legendary.
In the evenings, I worked him many times on 75 meters from my home north of Anchorage, Alaska.
...Always was a favorite ...his HF antenna system in Vegas is AWESOME...
Art was a talented commercial radio broadcaster and ham radio operator. I learned about his passing only two hours ago. May he rest peacefully. https://www.msn.com/en-us/entertain...the-13th-at-age-72/ar-AAvSdcW?ocid=spartanntp
Art Bell, W6OBB, and his drone.
I heard Art on 40m a couple of weeks ago. He was discussing the birth of his son. A great signal here in Dallas, Texas. I knew the people who headed up the organization that brought us Coast to Coast and so many other programs. The news of Art's passing was announced Friday April 13. I'll have more to say as we learn more.

His show could range from thought provoking to downright tin-foil-hat-nutty. I listened often...even when things got crazy subject wise, he was always entertaining.
