Dark Matter XM was an American radio talk show hosted by the late Art Bell. Dark Matter XM focused on paranormal and scientific topics. The program debuted September 16, 2013 on Sirius XM, and aired live Monday through Thursday from 10 p.m. ET to 2 a.m. ET on Sirius XM Radio’s Indie Talk Channel 104, where it lasted until the Spooky Matter edition of the show which aired on October 31, 2013. Dark Matter XM was the first program hosted by Art Bell full-time since his departure from regularly hosting Coast to Coast AM in 2003.
Once Art decided against returning to using the Dark Matter name, he gave it to Bob Bain in 2015. Bob had already been given permission by Art Bell to register and use DarkMatterXM.com (April 2013). Bob decided against hosting the Dark Matter program until after Art’s death. Now Bob is bringing Dark Matter back to the masses with Dark Matter AM.
The Spooky Matter program is also returning on October 31, 2022.
Spooky Matter is an annual caller driven ghost stories program that will last for three hours.
