The Passing of Art Bell

For those who doesn’t know, Art Bell was the radio voice of UFOs and unexplained phenomenon in the mid 90s. Very sad to hear of his passing.

When we were staying up late inbetweening on Hunchback and Hercules we would always listen to Art Bell. At that time, we would often work until 1am or 2am in the morning. His voice complimented the crunch time schedules and gave us plenty to talk about it back then.

It only makes sense that I would be up at 1am on a Friday night writing this post.

Even better was hearing his voice from the car radio as we sat out on Templin Highway watching the Perseid meteor showers. Nothing communicated the expanse of the far unknown like Art Bell.

And I’m grateful for the sense of wonder he brought to my life. 🛸
