The popular paranormal radio host's show 'Dark Matter' has disappeared from SiriusXM Satellite Radio.
Art Bell is a name that became synonymous with all things unexplained when he presented the popular Coast to Coast AM radio show for over 15 years. When plans were announced for him to return as host of a new nightly paranormal radio show on SiriusXM back in July, fans jumped at the chance to tune in.

I gave the show a try, but he had someone on with video that was so fake I wanted to scream. It was the guy who said he and his dog was attacked by an alien and his dog got killed. I stopped listening after that.
I do not understand this decision, this is very disappointing.
I am a fan of Art Bell and it is true that not everyone can pay for the satellite Sirius XM radio and therfore you've a limited audience.
As much as I was for it, the idea of having a free live streaming on artbell.com was unrealistic. Sirius, as a business, hoped to get more radio satellite subscribers with this show so why on Earth would they allow the show to be aired online for free?
The Art Bell production team should have forseen this. As much as people like Art Bell around the world, not everyone can get or is ready to pay for a monthly subscribtion on Sirius. He should come back to the old AM/FM band or else become a blogtalk radio like so many paranormal show.
Here is something reassuring:
''We are sorry that Dark Matter on SiriusXM has come to an abrupt end. We'll examine our options and may be able to return in a different format and medium.''
So, Art may be soon on air again, if they find a valuable solution.
Well if not, Noory on C2C AM will slowly but surely get his audience back.
Too bad, I only got to hear a few of the shows, the one on Fukushima and the future of nuclear power was enlightening and also frightening. I did like the opening "Departure" by the Moody Blues, seemed appropriate.
I think someone should make a radio show in the airplane that's flying in the sky searching for flying saucers and trying to interview them. So every show begins with airplane lifting off and ends with taking down.
