Coast to coast seems to come off as sort of a radio for conspiracy theorists/crackpots in this forum. Is this true?

He sells flashlights over the radio on an AM station.Pengwuino said:Who is this art bell
I never bought the flashlight, but I do own the AM antenna. I find many of his guests fascinating. Others are crap, but entertaining nonetheless.zoobyshoe said:He's a flashlight salesman with a paranormal hook.
zoobyshoe said:The last time I listen Art was on about some metal fragments someone had anonymously put at his disposal, claiming they were part of the Roswell wreckage. He was having them analyzed. This took days. I was strung along from night to night waiting to hear the results. Each night of waiting I had to sit through several energetic attempts to sell me
flashlight. Finally, the results came back: the metal was a common alloy of aluminum.
He's a flashlight salesman with a paranormal hook.
He did the same thing to me, which is probably the real reason I'm so denigrating. I called in to a UFO show, started to talk about Michael Persinger's explanations, and he suddenly shouted at me:Ivan Seeking said:That's why he cut the guy off.

My favorite guest was http://web.sbu.edu/cs/afoerst/ [Broken], the computer scientist/theologian working on the Cog and Kismet projects at the MIT AI labs.

He is your father.Ivan Seeking said::rofl: :rofl: :rofl: Well...

You dropped it one dark night on your way back to the house after only about five minutes of use, and it went out. You stood there, in the dark night, completely betrayed and abandoned by Art Bell, frantically pushing the switch back and forth, back and forth, while the skunks closed in.Ivan Seeking said:I bought the flashlight and it was incredible. Two C cells lasted about 40 hours, IIRC; with about 20 hours of that seeming at full brightness. I looked around and at the time it was comparably priced. Ultimately some contractors on a job site liked it so much that I never got it back.
He wasn't joking. That really happened. Poor Ivan. Tsu said it took months for his hair to grow back.Moonbear said::rofl: :rofl: Zooby, I'm so glad you're back! I've missed your imaginative sense of humor! :rofl:
Actually, John Lear is the son of William Lear [Lear Jets and, before that, Motorola]. Kind of ironic. William Lear was an engineer who developed the first car radio - now his son is a crackpot on the car radio.Ivan Seeking said:Of all of the stuff that I've heard, I think John Lear [Lear Jets] came up with about the most terrifying story of all time. He has taken the ET frenzy to an entirely new level. But it is truly scary to think how many people probably believed him.
Ivan and his father, Art Bell, are both crackpots.BobG said:William Lear was an engineer who developed the first car radio - now his son is a crackpot on the car radio.
To this day, though, when someone annoys him, he has to use every iota of self restraint to resist the urge to turn his back to them, bend over, and pee.Math Is Hard said:He wasn't joking. That really happened. Poor Ivan. Tsu said it took months for his hair to grow back.
