In pondering possible loopholes to exploit I was wondering - In lieu of a release to do his own show straight-out any earlier than the end of his NC clause, how about in the meanwhile Art becomes a regular ongoing featured "panelist" on Bellgab's podcast - i.e. someone else ostensibly performs the direct hosting chores, taking calls and/or interviewing guests, while Art takes a 'commentator' role in the proceedings?

The podcast could go by the unofficial title "NOT the Art Bell Dark Matter Show"

They discussed that very possibility, of course.

Inevitably....

"We're sorry, but our regular guest on the 'NOT The Art Bell Show,' Art Bell, can't appear tonight -- his back hurts."

hey I am sure he can do his own thing with podcasts and so on, but he almost definitely can't use the name dark matter, and likely he has a clause in the contract against doing something that might compete with what he was airing on sirius, so no paranormal stuff? Hard to say. If he was smart he had a good lawyer BEFORE he signed the contract since that matters a lot more than afterwards.

Logic does not seem to have played a large role in any of this, from the very beginning. It seems all impulsive, with the downfalls that entails.

I think the hatred Art had for Clear Channel/PremRad was perhaps the reason the deal was done with the devil. FWIW, I always thought Ramona was his business manager, based on their early relationship.

Please help the media/social media campaign to get SiriusXM to release Art from the Non-Compete clause.

Email Sirius management, post on the SiriusXM FaceBook page, twit @SiriusXM with hashtag #FreeArtBell

Demand that they release Art Bell from the Non-Compete

Look what's happening already:

If they don't already, SiriusXM is going to wish they never heard of Art Bell.

I'm sure there's a psychological term that explains all this.

Pahrumpanoia? The Bell Curve?

Well, it's a collective response to psychic trauma, that's for sure.

I for one vote for Pahrumpanoia to be the name of Art's new new show.
