First time, long time...
I got through the 90's as a late 20 year old college student listening to Art Bell here on the East Coast from 1am to 5am almost every damned night.
Fortunately for me, real life called back in 2000 and it was all about moving out of state for the 9am to 5pm routine.
I missed the final years of Art's reign on the radio and found myself one day tuning in late at night to see what Art had been up to and there was this guy, this George Noory fellow on air. Assuming he was filling in for Art, I was shocked to find out that this WAS the show. This guy, George Noory, filling Art's shoes.
That was a time ago.
For the last couple months, I've tried to give it another shot. I really have tried to give this another chance and I can't do it anymore. I check out the website and see the scheduled guests and topics and I have no interest. Aside from the vapid guests and topics and Noory's scripted performance night in and night out, I simply can not give this guy or this show any more time.
Until the suits at Premier Networks make a change... ANY change... that attempt to resuscitate the format and give George his walking papers, I'm done.
I really am depressed at how awful this show has become and it might be me. I might have wizened over the years and become more skeptical, matured or educated... but
Enough... I can't stand tuning in anymore.
