Hello everyone! I discovered this forum sort of by accident when searching for old C2C shows with Art Bell as the host for download. When I found MV's stream I was totally stunned. I just want to say thank you, sir for the stream. It's been on constantly as I've been studying for my exams
I don't know what it is, but Art's voice is perfect for concentrating, and it beats Christmas music any day of the week.
I first started listening to Coast to Coast AM as a 13 year old when I'd stay up all night and listen to music and weird shows on the radio. I forget exactly how it happened but one night, this was probably back in 1994, I was just perusing the AM side of things when this voice came out of the radio. This voice was unlike any voice I'd ever heard. It was serious, spooky and extremely knowledgeable and totally unique. From that point on I was hooked. I used to stay up all night on Friday and Saturday nights listening to Art every weekend back when he worked all the time. Listening to his show got me interested in science, the paranormal and radio in general. There was just something about that voice coming out of a slightly crackly AM radio in my pitch black bedroom that would keep me totally transfixed.
I have my opinions on George Noory as well, and you'll be hearing my take on that situation. I personally believe that George Knapp is the logical successor to Art because he also has that serious distinctive voice that gives C2C that feel it used to have. That, to me, is the main problem with Noory. He just doesn't have "it", and his voice would be better suited to a morning show or a drive time slot.
Thanks for having this forum available to all the people who appreciate good radio.
