    Last month during his live show his house was shot at. Last night he interrupted an interview because he thought he had somebody on his property, and something happened this evening leading him to cancel tonight's show. He said he and his family are now safe, and he'll explain more tomorrow night.

    He lives in a remote area if I remember. People know where he lives and he attracts nutjobs. Didn't someone vandalize his property recently as well with spraypaint.

    He needs to talk to Cumia about setting up some panic rooms and getting some good hardware.

    Couple of weeks ago a right before Art went on the air, somebody called his house and said if he went on the air that night, him and his family would be killed. He went on the air anyways, then the other night right before he went on the air , his security lights went on outside his studio. Art went outside with his gun, and saw a man crouched down under his studio window. The man ran away into the dark desert . Police investigation is ongoing .

    And before all that, a month ago while on the air live, Somebody shot at Art's studio with a rifle . One of Art's neighbors texted him and said a man with a gun was right in front of his house/studio shooting a rifle then got in a car and left. Police were called out for that also.

    Good grief.. I'd heard the rest of the story, but not that part. What the fuck is wrong with people?

    Another "incident" at Art's house/studio forced a replay of an old show tonight. Art said on his Twitter "all are safe"...

    Can't say I didn't see this coming. Part of me wonders if this isn't all bullshit just so he can fade off gracefully instead of just quitting. He wasn't pulling in the affiliates like he had wanted to. The show had hovered around 50 for quite a while. It's unfortunate as I was really enjoying getting to hear him every night again :(

    Ridiculous..

    I'll stick out the month to see if he comes back, but Art is so flakey!

    The whole Sirius debacle. Then, before the new show even debuted, he twice threatened to abandon the project because he had a spat with Keith or he couldn't secure song rights etc..

    Now it's this "stalker" horseshit.

    People have been accusing him of fabricating the whole thing to the point he posted a copy of the police report on his FB. Guess he didn't realize that all that proves is he called the police one night; nothing beyond that.

    If he's sick of doing the show full time, he should just say so. Keep the DMN alive and do an occasional show when he feels like it. Just be honest. No need for the theatrics.

    Not to mention it's a REALLY shitty thing to do to all the affiliates that picked up MITD! Are any of them, especially giants like KABC, gonna stick with his fucking fill-in host/producer until his hissy fit has run it's course? Or ever trust him again when he decides to make a 4th comeback?

    If the stalker story is real, Art must realize he's letting they guy win. That's what he's been threatening, right? "Stop doing the show or else"?

    Art has a lot of money. He could hire a fucking platoon of security guards to catch this guy and get back to business as usual.

    Something smells rotten in Pahrump..

    So..if Art was single and no kids, he'd still be on the air? Sure. He's got problems beyond the radio show clearly. He's not lying when he says he's stopping the show to protect his family..might help, but somebody is this pissed because he interviews people that saw Bigfoot?..Suuuuuure.

    They will refund subscriptions if there was an overlap of when Art stopped new shows/and your monthly renewal date was.

    Meh. If they leave the old shows up he can have my money. He's entertained me enough over the years to deserve it.
