Art Bell Midnight In The Desert Starts Tonight

Art Bell, legendary late night radio broadcaster jump started his latest venture last night at midnight, taking calls from listeners around the world for his Midnight In The Desert radio show.

It's clear Bell, after last nights "test" broadcast, still has lots of loyal fans notwithstanding some glitches hampering last night's show as apparent buffering of the digital internet signal left parts of the show unintelligible for brief periods, causing Bell to terminate the test show early after 2 1/2 hours.

The official start of the broadcast is tonight and fans can hear him week nights from midnight until 3 a.m. (eastern time). Bell broadcasts from his home studio in the high desert of Nevada and is expected to continue talking with guests and callers about paranormal and science topics via internet streaming and some AM, FM, and short wave radio broadcast stations.

Bell departed the popular overnight radio show (which he created and hosted,) Coast To Coast AM in 2003 and ten years later joined satellite broadcaster Sirius XM but quit after six weeks.

The new Art Bell show will be streamed live on the internet through Dark Matter Digital Network with an option for listeners to subscribe monthly. Additionally some AM, FM and shortwave radio stations have signed on to simulcast the live show as well, all agreeing to pay music fees to copyright owners if they air the show and to expect a free-form show with station breaks at Bell's choosing.

A current list of stations airing the overnight Art Bell program live is at

    It's a good thing!

  2. The smooth talker is back and it is great to hear his voice--he is real talented at late night talk, he does not carry anger which comes through in his voice, he does not have a political agenda and is unbiased and he has the unique ability to make every guest and caller seem as if they are the most interesting person in the world. To me he is a real gift for the listener because he is easy going and that is perfect for that time of evening..
