    Art Bell will stage a 2 hour open lines dry-run of his new show "Midnight in the Desert" tonight at 9 pm on his own Dark Matter Digital network.

    The show will air for free 3 hours a night weeknights beginning Monday July 20th.

    also 20 terrestrial radio stations will carry the show.

    Stern Related because Howard's been MIA for years.

    NO idea on what the over/under that Art will still be on the air by the end of the year.

    I have good memories driving on the freeway and hearing Coast to Coast. I'll check it out even though I mostly knew Noory.

    Awesome! I hope the show is good, and i hope art sticks with it when the first thing that doesn't go his way comes down the pike.

    Glad to hear the show is airing on some terrestrial stations. So much of what made art bell great was the insomniac goofball callers who have nothing better to do than listen and call radio shows at 3am!

    Used to love Coast to Coast AM and it's Sunday version, Dreamland. George Noory sucked.

    Read over on Wikipedia that Art Bell had to wait till his non-compete clause expired from the Sirius show he walked away from. It expired this month. I don't know why he walked away from Sirius. If you build up a following they pay you extremely well. He certainly isn't making much with his own network. The Dark Matter Digital Network. Now that is allowed to do shows it will probably expand. Bell is weird. Colin Cowherd started in Las Vegas like Art Bell did. He was on some shit radio station, got noticed and made a huge pile of cash working for ESPN. He left for Fox to make even more money. Bell was syndicated all over the country but his fucked up personal life and his health forced him to quit. Sirius gives him a chance and he leaves after six weeks. Don't know how long this thing will last.
