Tribute to Art Bell, paranormal talk radio host extraordinaire who challenged what the medium could be, gained millions of listeners, and was an interesting guy in his own right (while being surprisingly down to earth). Also: unexplained explosions and dead birds in an Arkansas town, and the US government admits they investigate UFOs. Wanna take a ride?
