Radio host Art Bell famous for his series "coast-to-coast AM" and its own "xfiles"-flavored concentrate around the paranormal, expired Friday (his enthusiasts will note that was Friday the 13th) at time of 72, Nevada police confirmed Saturday". He broadcast the show from his radio station, KNYE, in Pahrump, Nev. He would famously start out his broadcasts, "From the kingdom of Nye", an ode to Nye County, where Pahrump is located.

Mr Putin and Mr Macron instructed their foreign and defence ministers to maintain close contact to "de-escalate the situation", the Kremlin said.

Groban recalled staying up late to listen to the host's "one of a kind" voice and how "his shows were so weird & spooky but somehow managed to hold off your skepticism".

Former business partner Alan Corbeth said during Bell's 2008 induction into the National Radio Hall of Fame that nobody was better than Bell at understanding "how to create theater of the mind". In most recent years, classic Bell shows on the program "Somewhere in Time" have been on the air.

Before "coast-to-coast AM" began, Bell, who was born in 1945, was in the Air Force during the Vietnam War and then there he "cried his youth passion for tv by working on a pirate radio channel", in line to the obituary.
