If you search your favourite podcast provider for Art Bell Archive, or Classic Art Bell Podcast, you'll find loads of old episodes from his radio show, including one with a nice Timothy Good interview that I listened to earlier.
Thanks Kryptonite, I downloaded two huge archive collections of old shows a few months back, should still be up on Pirate Bay, if anyone wants to download them I can start seeding the one titled ''The Ultimate Art Bell Collection Part 1 of 2'' it's 34.4 GB, some great old episodes.

Just read this decent article, from April 2018,

From east of the Rockies to beyond the fringe
How Art Bell and ‘Coast to Coast AM’ turned conspiracy radio into a theater of the mind.
Like Orson Welles’s War of the Worlds or the overnight radio pioneer Long Jon Nebel before him, Art Bell amalgamated the ambience of the twilight and the crackling, wobbly, “theater of the mind” quality offered by AM radio to architect an immersive world that was mysterious, intriguing, a bit foreboding, sometimes unsettling, and often outright absurd, but always with the whimsy of campy horror or a B-movie.

Just noticed that my sketch in the post above has vanished, and the option to edit is gone too...

I've been getting quite into the Halloween spirit this year and been spooking myself at night listening to these archives of Art Bell's 'Ghost to Ghost' episodes.

Some really good stories and the obvious crank ratio is quite low (IMHO). Hours of IHTM material. I rather like his style.

I couldn't say this is complete, but here is a collection of old shows that should keep anybody busy for a long time.

1,338 shows:

Note: the very first show listed (the only one from 1992) is fragmented and a low-quality recording; the second, on the Philadelphia Experiment, is the place to start.

I tried to found Coast to Coast forums , and fount that the main forum of that program is closed and dont allow new registers. Is quite strange for a so huge program, dont you think? Is the conspiroesphere conspirating itself :)

The program was left to and/or bought by a different producer, I imagine they're profiting on the re-runs. I'm not aware of any live new programming. I don't like Bell, who could fill an hour with two minutes worth of hard material, and don't follow the program but it's regularly on one of my local stations late Saturday nights.

Follow-up: somebody on YouTube is doing God's work.
