INTRODUCTION

 

Arthur William Bell III (Art Bell) was a radio genius, a master of the medium able to convey over the airwaves an unparalleled sense of belonging to the listening audience.  Out of the dark ethereal, Art – his voice, carrying through the night – created us as a family ... brought us into being as his radio clan, so that over time – night after night – we came together, instilled with the sense that we were no longer just our individual selves … that we were no longer hopelessly alone.  We had each other.  We had the show’s many varied and wonderful guests and callers, and most importantly, we had a leader in Art.  Art Bell.

If I had an unlimited amount of time yet to live, one of the first things I would do would be to transcribe the entirety of Art Bell’s radio catalog, beginning with the first paranormal-themed shows in 1992 and continuing through Art’s last commercial broadcast on March 11, 2016.  I would name this transcription:

 

ART BELL’S PARANORMAL RADIO ANTHOLOGY:

THE WHOLE ENCHILADA

 

But since (by all reasonable hypotheses) I do not have an unlimited amount of time yet to live, I am forced to be more judicious in choosing what broadcast transcriptions/tidbits to include within this archive of Art Bell’s radio programs.

 

Thank you for understanding.
