Coast-to-Coast AM has some good points. I’ve heard the number one host, George Noory, defend the Second Amendment on numerous occassions. Noory frequently has John Lott (”More Guns, Less Crime”) on the show as a guest, too.
The current program needs to cut back on the frequency of unverifiable topics and guests.
Some of the put-on artists that Art had were great. Mel's Hole was a great "story". The guy that "flew" (or tried to "fly") over Area 51 was great radio.
In his prime, Art would challenge, and ask real questions of say, environmentalists and anarchists, and other posers.
Noory and some of the other hosts, including Bell, no longer do that.
Noory getting punked by the shysters ripping people off with capturing Big Foot, only to have a "worker" let it go before "they" could get blood and hair samples, and but after they conned people into buying webcam subscriptions from the "hunt" was reminiscent of Tim Conway on Night Court, except that it didn't cost viewers a subscription...
