The last time I had mentioned Art Bell was back in November of 2013 when his XM show started up, and very quickly shut down.
Tonight, he returns with a test broadcast, with a full-fledged debut tomorrow night of his newest talk show, “Midnight In The Desert” on the Dark Matter Radio Network, airing over scores of stations nationwide.
After his last venture, I didn’t think the radio business would welcome him with open arms, but the radio business being what it is today, they have welcomed him back once more. I do not mean that as an indictment on my former industry, but more as a testament to the kind of radio Art does. He builds an audience and keeps an audience, no matter who he has on, or if he has nobody on but himself in what they call an “open lines” show.
Best of luck, Art.
