    RIP Art Bell, no more coast to coast. I enjoyed his programs on late night AM out in the desert.

    Never got to work him on the air but I understand he was a good op.

    RIP.

    He was a little odd, but in a nice way. I had a lot of fun on late night winter group ragchews with him and others,

    We all goofed with live web cams during QSOs, and he got a big charge out of me wearing that same tee-shirt.

    Listened to the show for years ... back in the day. Never took any of it seriously but it was a good exercise in thinking about possibilities. Sci-fi and mystery, legend and lore.
    Listened in on one of his round table QSO's back in the ESSB daze and thought it was something neat to happen upon.
    I like to think he was a pretty happy guy. You could just hear it in the relaxed manner of his voice, consistent, for years.

    I never worked him either..... I have heard him a couple of times on 80 meters but his biography reads as bizarro in any case.RIP W6OBB

    Makes me sad. Listened to him since his old show in Vegas used to skip into Chicago when I was a kid.
