Coast To Coast AM is an iconic piece of radio and the perfect late-night talk station, and though he's been retired for some time, his influence on the great fun of the paranormal is worth saluting

    I loved how he would weave ideas out of his guest's information and help them tell their stories

    sometimes it was an amazing discovery in quantum physics and sometimes it was a conspiracy on the masses

    but he was the best radio host there ever will be

    I guess I'll drive out into the desert tonight and listen to some old shows as tribute.

    I spent a lot of my teen years baling hay in the middle of the night. Art Bell and his unerring instinct for interesting weirdos got me through a lot of hours. He also had a really good storytelling method of "hint, don't show or tell" that still informs a lot of Internet horror today.

    He was definitely one of the more interesting radio personalities. I think it wouldn't be a stretch to say he was one of the four pillars of radio, just the late night one
