Wow, I won! (From Art)

I would like to thank all the listeners who voted for me and that includes the group here on F.F.

I have been nominated for and have won many awards in the Years I have been on the air but I think this one means by far the most. I have looked at the company I will be in and it humbles me indeed.

We will be on a cruise to Hawaii from October 23rd through Nov 7th and will have to fly directly from San Diego to Chicago to make it.

So I would like to take this opportunity to thank all who made this possible. I think the lesson of all this is try not to follow the herd in life. I am only sorry Ramona did not have a chance to see it happen.

All the ABs are well indeed and the smallest AB is running all around the house and getting into as much trouble as possible.

We are going to take a Vacation to the Philippines so the Grandparents can have a look.

Talk to you all again soon.

Art, Airyn and Asia

Congratulations Art!

We are all very lucky to have been along for the ride (and hopefully we'll get to take another ride along with you soon - any news you can share with us on that front?).

Just knew you'd HAVE to get the honor this time, Art!! Right on!!

We are SO happy and pleased for you! My 88-year-old Dad, who is your fellow Ham and long-time listener said "this honor was long overdue and I'm real happy for Art." He and so many others you'll never know voted for you out of admiration, respect, and we Pirates can add "love." Glad we could help spread the word, as well.

Ramona knows . . . have no worries there. :)

Don't let anything stand in the way of making it to the awards ceremony. Wish we could all be there.

You are incomparable -- the best of the best!

This was inevitable. Your broadcasts have been magical for many years.

Congratulations my friend, hope to hear some more from you soon.

If not enjoy your cruise and vacation.

Your recognition is very well deserved. First it was Art Bell in LA for R&R and now Art in Chicago for the big honor. Those are pretty big spotlights for a small town Pahrump guy. Shows how much of an impact you made on radio worldwide. As humble as you usually are when you downplay listeners calling you a "legend" on the air, you have to admit this has got to feel really good.

What's true is true, Art is a radio legend and always King of the Overnight.

Once again congrats and best of luck hope all is happy and healthy in the Bell house.

It's about time. You're the best. You made radio magic.

I miss hearing you like crazy. No one else comes close, anytime of the day.

Thank you for sharing your joy with your web cam shots.

All the best to you and yours, always.

Jan, another pirate on the loose in America

Good to hear your excitment.

Send photos, we like that.

Write down all you want to say, before you receive that award. You know how it is, at our age, we start to forget what we wanted to say.................ah, but you never were one to be at a loss for words!
