Terrified Area 51 Ex-Employee Talks On Coast-to-Coast AM With Art Bell ** WARNING: SPOOKY AS HELL


If you havent heard this clip from the infamous radio show “Coast to Coast” you should do. Its one of those classic moments in the show which went down in its history, while Art Bell was hosting.

Cloaked in mystery and intrigue, this clip still lives on, being discovered by new seekers in both the alternative and ufo community with relish.

It is kind of scary, so maybe keep your teddybear close by.

My specific query with regards to the clip is why on earth ( no pun intended) does Art Bell say “Discharged” before the radio cuts out?

Is this man a paid actor, genuine, a manchurian candidate, an mkultra victim or what? …. you decide, if you dare…

Shortly after this broadcast Art Bell began winding down his operations at Coast 2 Coast, and wikipedia reports of strange goings on following the broadcast..


UPDATE ( 21/10/07 )
*** I’ve just received this email from an avid listener of C2C at the time of the broadcast, on their request I will keep their identity anonymous ***

“Greetings “Frog”!

I want to take this opportunity to write and clarify some apparent confusions regarding that now “classic” 1997 broadcast and it’s aftermath.

I used to be a AVID listener(EVERY NIGHT) before I subscribed to “Streamlink”,so was able to catch the initial broadcast AND ALL the subsequent follow-ups too. THIS is what REALLY happened:
1.The caller made that initial call(heard here)which was actually AUDIOTAPED and played SOME years later by Art on the air AT LEAST ONCE. It was only the BROADCAST that was mysteriously interrupted. Art spoke with the caller for MORE than is heard HERE, before he was alerted by the producer that the actual BROADCAST wasn’t being received. The COMPLETE conversation I clearly remember listening to some time later. I will discuss THAT a bit later. It was during that initial conversation that Art says the word “discharged”. Art was at that time STILL speaking to the caller and was questioning him ABOUT that discharge, evidently expressing DOUBT as to the veracity of the caller’s claims and wanting to accentuate this to his LISTENERS, hence Art’s PRONOUNCED accent on that particular word just before the broadcast cut off.

2. About a week later, the caller RETURNED, now claiming it was all a HOAX, at which point Art sounded quite RELIEVED.

3. About two years AFTER that initial call, the caller AGAIN returned, now claiming(in great detail)that he had been kidnapped, brainwashed and essentially been made to claim it was all a hoax,by secret agencies inside the govt.
As you would imagine, this totally FREAKED Art(and most of the callers that night).

4.At some point afterward(memory fails me on exactly WHEN)someone CLAIMING to be that caller AGAIN came on the phone with Art, and began a hysterical rant. Art(and most of his listeners)recognised that this caller DIDN’T sound like the same person, and Art-after exchanging a few words with him-promptly HUNG UP.

It was revealed in the audiotape of that complete first call that the responsibility of the “Aliens” entry into our world/dimension rested squarely within the US govt. itself. The caller claimed that secret factions within our military were conducting tests(based on work that had begun with German scientists during WWII)and it was during these “tests” that a portal was opened, allowing their entry. The caller insinuated that communications were made with the “Aliens” for some time PRIOR to their actual ENTRY into OUR dimension, at that PRIOR to their entry,the US govt. was led to believe that the They were NOT a possible threat to national security.

Since these (rightly)classic shows, several factors have come to my attention to make ME believe the caller was GENUINE, not a sham. At least one qualified expert on voice-stress analysis did a reading on that initial call, and declared publicly that he found NOTHING that led him to believe that the caller was making up ANY part of it.
Another factor was the caller’s description of those “extra dimensions” in terms that neatly fall into place with what are now called “parallel universes” or the “String Theory”, which of course at the time of that broadcast(1997)the general public knew almost NOTHING about. Still ANOTHER reason I believe it’s NOT a hoax is the fact that Art Bell has publicly declared he DIDN’T play any part whatsover in it, other than what was heard on-air those nights over that two year period. Art certainly has his faults(I’m NO fan of his “child bride” marriage…especially SO SOON after Ramona’s demise)but I sincerely believe in his PROFESSIONAL integrity, and I think most of his listening audience DO TOO!

Warm regards,

PS In regard to later allegations that it was TOM GREEN who was the mystery caller, I would bet the farm that if he made ANY of the calls it was only the FOURTH:where Art and most callers DIDN’T BUY IT, and Art promptly HUNG UP on the guy!” “

    Give us a break. Spooky music on top of some poor paranoid shizophrenic’s cry for help.

    How do we know that the piece isn’t cut together from several calls?

  2. Ed says:

    I would’ve thought the first thing to occur to an astronaut would be, RTFM.

    But yeah, most likely a schizo.

    As for the idea the government wants to reduce world population through war and disease. Well, that’s just absurd.

    Tell me it’s absurd.

  3. Buzz Aldrin says:

    “The government wants to reduce world population through war and disease”

    Hmm, Okay. I suggest you take that little theory of yours and apply Peter Barrett’s structured, logical and scientific approach to testing the integrity of an argument.


    Then check with your MD – we may need to review the strength of your medication.

  4. Ed says:

    I said ‘tell me it’s absurd’, not ‘insult my intelligence’.

  5. Ed says:

    … Or, for that matter, ‘misquote me, misattribute the source of the “theory” [which would technically be a hypothesis] to me, and then imply I am on medication for raising the issue of planetary over-population.’

    In the interest of stimulating debate (as opposed to shortfalling pedantry, though admittedly I’m no longer one to talk), how would you – if it fell to you – deal with global over-population? Or is it even a problem in your eyes? I’m interested to know others POV’s on this as, unfortunately, I don’t have the solution. Answers preferably without name-calling/defamatory insinuation [in order to keep to the point at hand].

    Opinions backed up with at least some sound research would be nice.

    In my opinion, arguing about arguing is technically known as ‘rhetoric’: and this has a familiar history of not actually touching on the problem referred to, rather doing everything in it’s power to avoid it.

    This, in my opinion, has nothing to do with integrity – whether the contextual implication of the word be technical or moral.

  6. Buzz Aldrin says:

    Overpopulation isn’t the problem. The problem is the accepted, inherited, dysfunctional mindset that seeks solution to ‘problems’ via opposition. The war on terror, the war on drugs, fighting crime, et al. Whatever you resist persists. You strenthen that which you oppose. In this case overpopulation is framed as a problem that needs ‘a fix’.

    The opposition mindset is the problem. If humans didn’t oppose and fight and argue and disagree about everything we’d have the resources to deal with your implied overpopulation problem.

    How many trillions of dollars, resources and innocent lives have been squandered in WW1, WW2, Korea, Cambodia, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan?

    Over a hundred million lives were extinguished at the hands of their fellow men in the 20th century.

    That seed of opposition is within you, it’s within me. When you felt a surge of anger and attacked my original post you demonstrated it. That, my friend, is ‘the problem’. We can’t point the finger and say “They’re insane”. We have to look at ourselves and admit that “We’re insane”.

    This isn’t skirting the issue or engaging in rhetoric. It’s getting right to the point, penetrating to the core and talking about that.

    To ‘solve’ overpopulation. One has to ‘solve’ man’s inhumanity to man. Simple.

    That starts with you and me. Right here and right now. Being nice to one another.

    Love ‘n’ hugs.
    You ol’ pal Buzz.

    Sounds like little more than rhetoric useful only for absolving oneself of the responsibility for thinking seriously about a problem, probably any problem, humanity has.

    Also, why has the subject matter become me? How does genocide become MY fault? You assume all the problems “out there” are “in here” and while I agree with you on a philosophical level, on a simple practical one that argument just simply does not cut it, period.

    Again, to me, this sounds like rhetoric: an apparently sufficient method for avoiding the issues and attacking the channel through which it is received (commonly known as shooting the messenger). An age old problem and rife in today’s society to the point of psychosis.

    As for being nice to one another, I wish the solution were that simple. Try telling that to a 10 year old Ugandan child toting an M16 while high on heroin who watched his pregnant mother get hacked to death with machettes.

  8. Buzz Aldrin says:

    “”””Sounds like little more than rhetoric useful only for absolving oneself of the responsibility for thinking seriously about a problem, probably any problem, humanity has.””””

    Well, maybe that’s how it sounds to you, but that isn’t the intention. I’m not trying to sidestep the issue. I’m only interested in facing the cause of humanity’s self-inflicted problems head on.

    “””Also, why has the subject matter become me?”””

    It’s about you, it’s about me, it’s about everybody taking personal responsibility.

    “””How does genocide become MY fault? “””

    It’s ‘your fault’ because human beings just like you built the Nazi concentration camps. They weren’t ‘evil people’ per se. They were regular people just like you and me. With families, day-to-day worries and hopes for the future. They were swept along with the tide of fascism. There but for the grace of God go you or I. Can you say that, if you were a young man in Germany in 1937 you wouldn’t have been swept along with that tide of fascism?

    If you point your finger and say “he is evil”. You take the mental stance of ‘against’ and then you resist that perceived evil; you serve only to entrench the “us” and “them” mentality. It’s the “us” and “them” mentality that allows people to rationalize their crimes against humanity. When you objectify the other as ‘the enemy’ you strip him of his humanity. The reduction of a fellow human to a conceptual label is the primordial act of violence. Once you’ve reduced a human being to a concept like ‘the enemy’, killing him becomes a relatively simple matter.

    “””You assume all the problems “out there” are “in here” and while I agree with you on a philosophical level, on a simple practical one that argument just simply does not cut it, period.”””

    The problems “out there” are the inevitable manifestation of their corresponding problems “in here”. The outer dysfunction that you see in the world mirrors the inner dysfunction that lies within each of us. Global conflicts mirror the conflict we experience in our own personal relationships on a day-to-day basis. Therefore, the assumption is true on both the philosophical and the practical levels.

    “””As for being nice to one another, I wish the solution were that simple. Try telling that to a 10 year old Ugandan child toting an M16 while high on heroin who watched his pregnant mother get hacked to death with machettes.”””

    You just turned a human tragedy into a sound bite. You just used that little 10-year-old girl Ugandan as a punch line.

    Think about that.
