Art Bell is a founder and original host of the late night paranormal show Coast to Coast AM. Bell went into semiretirement in 2003, with occasional guest host appearances up until 2010. Bell’s fans were excited for his return when he began a new show on SiriusXM radio. However, the show only lasted six weeks.
Open Minds reports Bell will also be returning to paranormal radio with an internet streaming show that is set to begin on July 20, 2015. The show will be called Midnight in the Desert, and like the name implies, will begin at midnight and run until 3 am eastern; 9 pm to midnight for those on the west coast in the pacific time zone.
Unlike his last show, which could only be heard on SiriusXM, the new show will be broadcast on many mediums, allowing listeners several options in which to hear the show. As mentioned earlier, this even includes shortwave radio. The show’s website says they made a deal with a shortwave station out of Tennessee, WTWW on 5,085 khz.
The live show will be broadcast for free. However, listeners will need to purchase a monthly subscription to listen to the archives. The starting fee for the subscription service will only be $5 a month. The subscription will also provide access to something they will call the “Wormhole,” which will allow users to send Bell message during the show.
The show is going to run on Dark Matter Digital radio network, where they currently run several UFO and paranormal related podcasts. Dark Matter Digital currently has a TuneIn app that allows listeners to listen to the network.
