In my opinion, the best radio host of my time is gone. Although the last show he did was one lines on 03/2016. I always hoped he would return one day.
If you never had the chance to hear this man live you missed out. There is still a library of recordings all over the web. If you want hours of entertainment to listen to them.
The last show he created was Midnight In The Desert. He turned over the broadcast to Heather Wade in the later part of 2015. The show still reflects the spirit of Art but none can replace that voice, his mastery of the interview
He introduced me to ham radio and a different view of people with perceptions different from my own. He was a trickster and a funny man.
Rest well. and peace be with your family.
