Weekly discussion of Art Bell's past topics and online communities

Join Us Live Sunday's at 8PM on deeptalkradio.com

Jaz and themudking take a look at the early days of JC Webster and his evolution as a personality all Art Bell fans are familiar with. Starting with an open lines call the 'JC' phenomenon begins, rolling into the first few times Art begins to have fun with the strictly fundamentalist Mr. Webster. Fun is had by all. Thank you to our callers during this episode and we unveil our first 'corporate sponsors' to much fanfare and confusion. There was Game of Thrones talk too. Wild conspiracies abound, R+L=J is the truth according to themudking. Jaz thinks themudking is an idiot for his Bolton vampire theory.
The BellPhiles takes a look back at the first appearances of Ed Dames on Coast to Coast AM with Art Bell.  We review predictions based on Dames's Remote Viewing (RV) work and develop a theory connecting Christopher Nolan to the world of remote viewers. ***SPOILER ALERT:  We also recap the first two episodes of The X-Files Season 10 with our friend Lou (@LouSheehan).

Our guest on episode 5 is BellGab.com community creator and podcaster Michael Vandeven.  He is host of several podcasts on Ufoship.com: The Gabcast, and Michael Vandeven's Radio Trainwreck.  We discuss how Michael became an Art Bell fan and the genesis of the website now famous to listeners of Midnight in the Desert. Michael and callers give their views on the current state of MiTD as well as Art's situation.
On Episode 4 of the BellPhiles jazmunda and themudking talk with Bill Birnes about the history of UFO’s as well as a wide range of topics on the subject.  We learned about the early relationship between Bill and Lt. Col. Philip J Corso and how it led to the writing of book The Day After Roswell and to researching the topic at a deeper level. The History Channel show UFO Hunters was also discussed, as we dig into how the show worked and whether there may be more to come.   Watch Bill on Dr. Feelgood on the Reelz network Saturday Dec. 19th, click here for more info.  Listen to his show Future Theater Monday nights at 10pm Eastern on Dark Matter Digital Network We wrap up with a quick call in session with the community to talk about where we stand in the Art Bell / Midnight in the Desert show’s future.   Book's mentioned on the show: The Life and Times of Mickey Rooney - Amazon The Day After Roswell - Amazon Dr. Feelgood - Amazon
So tonight we got the sad news Art will be leaving Midnight in the Desert permanently.  Jazmunda and themudking took calls from MiTD fans to discuss the current situation and share their thoughts.  Much pain was felt by all.  JC Webster III may have called and told the hosts they were "2 bit"?
