TOPIC: Your phone-screened show compared to Art Bell unscreened...
Why do you have calls screened on your show? Art Bell didn't, and he was such a captivating radio presence. I treasured listening to him, but often find your show dull and simplistic by comparison. Sadly, I find your guest hosts more interesting than you with the possible exception of when you have good guests. At the very least, you should not have your show screened.
One thing I don't like about your show is your generally simplistic reaction to callers, some of whom explain profound experiences they have had with ghosts or other paranormal experiences. You don't generally ask probing questions. You generally give a dull, obvious reaction like, "Well, that must have been scary." Then you thank the caller and move on. You generally leave behind so many questions you could have asked that were far more probing and intriguing.
Sometimes your show is interesting if the guest and subject matter are strong, but even Art Bell's choice of music were infinitely better than your entire show. Art had such charisma and depth, even if he wasn't saying anything and just playing an ABBA song. The way Art segued into a great song was part of his absolute charm, but when I listen to your show, I often turn the radio off or way down during the songs.
I also don't like that you're always selling your podcasts and trying to get more people to like you on Facebook. You can't change your personality, but if you were more of a captivating person on-air, you would have Facebook followers in droves.
Anyway, just wanted to get some things off my chest.
