Paranormal-Themed Radio Show Host Art Bell Dies

LULU GARCIA-NAVARRO, HOST:

Now from the sublime to the surreal - radio host Art Bell could talk for hours about conspiracy theories, ghost stories, alien abductions or things a sasquatch might say.

ART BELL: So we actually have Bigfoot sounds.

(SOUNDBITE OF GROWLING)

BELL: Good Lord.

(SOUNDBITE OF GROWLING)

BELL: Are Bigfoot capable of big, blood-curdling screams?

UNIDENTIFIED PERSON: Oh, I'm quite certain. Their lungs are just massive.

(SOUNDBITE OF GROWLING)

GARCIA-NAVARRO: Art Bell died Friday. He was 72.
