I’m Bob. Back in early 2013 Art Bell granted me exclusive usage of DarkMatterXM.com as so long as it adhered to his “rules”. Once Art Bell quit Dark Matter on Sirius XM, he told me that he would not return to using the name and that I could continue using it.
Art came back in 2015 and sure enough he decided against using Dark Matter as his show name; instead choosing to rename to Midnight In The Desert.
At this time I have not chosen to rebrand Mysterious Matters to Dark Matter or even Dark Matter XM. That option remains open and by doing so we would be the only real legacy show of Art Bell (other than Coast to Coast AM).
My name is Bob Bain. I was friends with Art Bell.
