Wanna Take A Ride?



[COMMENT][Art Bell] comes on the air on his new show Monday night with a huge booming voice. It's amazing how much bass he has in his voice hearing him in crystal clear audio and not on AM radio. I had to turn down the sound it was such a deep bass sound. He sounded so jazzed and excited but got serious real fast. He wanted to get a story off his chest right way.

Art tells a story how Premier Radio would not support him in a lawsuit after being slandered by David John Oates (of Reverse Speech fame) back in 1999. Art did not mention his name. Art was dealing with his son being attacked by a teacher and he somehow was accused of being a child molester and Premier and Clear Channel would not support him with legal resources. Art went on to fight this lawsuit with his own money. Art said that he was floored that his company would not back him up. He seethed with anger, he said. After a few years the CEO of Clear Channel came to his house and sat on his couch and said we want you back, and Art said "you don't have enough money". But then after a while he relented. He still has huge anger over this. He also talked about, for the first time ever, the death of his wife Romona. In a Time Magazine article he says that Goorge Noory is a lazy broadcaster and does not like how he does the show and how it has fallen into crap, his words.

So Art has the same music bumpers and also has the deep throat-ed Ross Mitchell doing the announcing and Keith Rowland doing the website again. It's like old times back in the day. In the late 90's I listened to thousands of hours of Art's show when I was working graveyard. The show just has a flavor about it and Art is just charismatic. He shares real thoughts and is a real person, a real decent person. It's really compelling radio, and that's all I need from a show.

[RADIO][Doug McIntyre] has been harping on Illegal Immigration for probably 13 or 14 years on local radio. He's finally thrown in the towel and who can blame him? You can literally talk about the facts and have people die and still we have someone in government pass a bill to give Illegal Aliens drivers licenses. It's just mind blowing. It's a free for all ladies and gentleman. Your argument, no matter how logical, is pushed away and it's because of race. Congrats!
