    Art Bell, W6OBB internationally known radio host and holder of a three different call signs in the U.S. and Manila has become a SK at the age of 72. Art is the founder and first host of a late night radio program called “Coast to Coast AM” that was heard on radio stations throughout North America around the world.
    Art was a great advocate for the hobby and often talked about ham radio to his audience on the program. He will be missed by many of us who have fond memories of late night entertainment and listening to his paranormal based program.
    His distinctive voice will not be heard again except in recordings.

    Reportedly in his home, autopsy to be performed, but in 2016 had pneumonia and COPD, for which the iconic posed photo offers a good explanation.

    Most intriguing is the paranormal conspiracy theory supportive Friday 13th departure :eek:

    Silent on our bands but perhaps still keying elsewhere, in QSO with Andy Kaufman! :rolleyes:

    I enjoyed Art Bell. Some of the guests on his shows were a little “out there” but it was fun to listen to in the middle of the night. I don’t recall ever working him on the ham bands.

    73, Art :(
