Art Bell, W6OBB and legendary late-night talk radio host is returning to the airwaves. Sirius XM will be the exclusive home to legendary nighttime talker Art Bell, marking his full-time return to radio with a new, expanded live, nightly call-in show on which he will explore the paranormal, unexplained and more with expert guests and listeners nationwide.
Sirius is building a studio at Bell’s rural Nevada home where he will work. Bell’s residents is home to his antenna farm where he does a lot of work on the 75 Meter Band. W6OBB station equipment includes both an Icom IC-7800 and a Yaesu FTDX-9000. Of course, all that equipment would be relatively useless without good antennas and Art has an equally impressive antenna farm with thirteen towers spread over five acres of land that give him one of the strongest signals on the amateur bands. Art’s remote Pahrump receiver that can be heard from the S-Meter site is located several miles away at his KNYE-FM broadcast station.
“Art Bell’s Dark Matter” will debut 9/16 on Indie, SiriusXM channel 104, airing nightly from 10:00 pm-1:00 am ET. Bell will host the show from his home studio in Pahrump, NV—near Area 51—opening the phones lines and inviting listeners and expert guests to join his uncensored, unscripted nightly conversation about a wide variety of topics including: the paranormal, near-death experiences, quantum physics, extraterrestrial life and the unusual.
For some of us that are a fan of Coast to Coast AM Noory’s program is on later at night, so the two will not compete directly live.
