    Art just posted this on his FB. Says he now will NOT be doing the new show as he can't secure rights to his preferred bumper music. I grew up listening to Art and was happy when he came back to Sirius, but he's been acting like a whiny bitch ever since..

    I have some very sad news to report, barring some sort of miracle there will be NO Dark Matter Radio show. Here is why: I will be unable to use ANY Bumper music, I will be unable to use any Theme music. The cost of using even the small amount that I use in my show stops us cold. Both Keith and I have talked this to death and there is no way around it.

    Yes I could do the show with no music but I will not because it was part of the very soul of my show as any of my former listener's know. I feel like crying to be honest with you. Keith and me along with others have poured time and money into this effort. I was about to spend $20,000.00 on just the Studio here in Pahrump. We had also cleared free streaming just as I had promised. The ..bottom line is that the music Industry has in my opinion shot themselves in the foot by making it impossible for anybody in my position to stream or provide any copyrighted music on the Web. That is why nobody, even Rush will do it. I am so sorry. If anything changes I will be right back on it. Just sad.

    It's "pinoy" and will he be murdering any Filipinas this time?
    Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't he accused of murdering his wife Ramona so that he could be with her younger sister?
    Is the walled eyed son of a bitch still in the Philippines?

    I got in huge fights on his Facebook page when he fucked up the XM gig because he was looking for traffic on his site to sell merch . I guess I was right about him . He has a shit load of kool aid drinkers still standing by him like the Big Gunk . The problem is his fans are ufo nuts and scary as hell . The Wig fans are just people who have not caught on yet that the Wig sucks these days .

    Thats funny. I knew it . I got kicked out of an Art Bell facebook page for calling bull shit on him when he wanted to stream the show off his web site so he could get traffic to sell T Shirts . The guy is a nut . Everything i said on the facebook page a year ago came true.
    I love it.

    Looks like Keith Rowland quit this time ... a lot of murmuring in the background had him pegged as a big part of the problems. Art's shaky too. If he can find someone competent to run the network and the business he might be able to make a go of it again. However so far Dark Matter Radio (without Bell) and KGRA (internet radio) are sailing smoothly along. By the time At gets his act together again (temporarily) he may find that nobody cares.

    He needs some one selling BS on his web site . That's what this is all about. He had a deal with XM but he got greedy and wanted to stream it off his site for free. No wonder that Keith guy quit . He was working with a flake . It's funny how all the other shows out there can get their music issues solved . Again it's one big conspiracy.

    When I used to have a live365 station on the web we used to pay a song royalty fee. It was no big deal . Maybe Art is just cheap and doesn't want to part with the marbles he will make selling BS off the web site he will Stream off . Either way he is comming off like a bitch . He should just do a podcast .

    Art is cheap. Doesn't think he should pay for anything. Remember when he tried to bring his most current wife into the country but was having trouble? Instead of hiring an Immigration attorney who's number you could find off the back of any bus in LA he wanted all his fans to write the INS.

    a very great deal of stress and
    It is no reason to ruin a very
    long friendship. So Midnight in

    Well Art is what he is, like it or not his core audience will always be there if he returns (for the bagillionth time). I'm a skeptic of all this paranormal stuff, but lots of people eat it up.
