Just some additional things I noticed while listening to the "confession":

Art refers to "Brian" with the call sign "East of the Rockies", which could possibly seem to be a deflection of where he is located. By "admitting" he is east of the Rockies he is trying to get the listeners to believe that he is nowhere near Area 51, and therefore cannot possibly have ever been affiliated with it. Or maybe he really just does live east of the Rockies.

"Brian" uses the phrase "That's my statement" after his initial confession, which seems a little bit too professional to me, as if he was ordered to "make a statement" and after he made his statement, reiterated to who ever had given him that order that he had done what he was told by saying "That's my statement." It seemed like it was directed more at whoever had put him up to this than at Art or the listeners. Just an observation, though, maybe I'm reading too much into it.

I also wonder why he feels he has to prove his point at all. Two or three times he says, "How can I prove this to you?" or something to that effect. Why in the world does he care so much about proving his point unless he was worried about possible repercussions if he didn't prove it?

And lastly, there seems to be a major inconsistency in the confession story. At the beginning "Brian" says, "I hung up on you last week," referring to the initial call. At the end of the conversation, he thanks Art for giving him the opportunity to prove himself, (because his life was in jeopardy if he didn't maybe?), and says, "This has been driving me bananas for months." So he starts off with the whole thing happening in a matter of days to it happening in a matter of months. Something is seriously wrong with that. I'm not even sure what it means. Maybe he was just nervous, maybe he and Art fabricated the whole thing and he got confused, maybe he's drugs, who knows?

There is no way this is fake or a prank..

What are the odds? There is no way this guy can do that good a job of acting. He truly sounded like something was after him. What are the odds that the satelite would cut out at that EXACT moment?

Then, we get very little into an explanation as to what happened?

Then, the confession, he sounds kinda like him, but I think the first caller, not the confession caller, had a deeper voice. That's just how it sounded to me though.

Also, as LoneGunMan pointed out..the date..September 11th...COME ON!!!!!!!!!!

In my opinion...this is real.

Don't know why I never thought of that, the second caller actually not being the same guy as the first! I guess it is so obvious that it would be that it never occured to me it was not! Yeah, Sept. 11th??, the satellite??? lots of thingsvery bizarre here! Again, we have to check in with Art Bell somehow to see what he really thinks/thought of this guy???

I emailed Art Bell, so we'll see if I get an answer back. If not I might have to call him this weekend when he's on the air, although I'm a little worried "they" might triangulate my position and put a gun to my head until I stop investigating!
The only issue with this is that I think if it is a hoax, it's quite possible Art Bell himself is involved in it. If he and "Brian" were in cahoots, it would've made the whole thing that much more believable and easy to pull off with the whole satellite thing and such. If he answers me back I'm going to be very suspicious and nitpick the way he words his answer.

Any idea why these two versions are different? I assume the former is the original, and the latter was redone (after the outage).

Hm, very good observation. The difference is the second part after the phone call with Area 51 Caller ended and after the satellite went caput. One of them cuts out all of the radio silence and then goes to Art Bell talking about how the weird it was that the satellite stopped working. The other one has an extended period of silence after the "satellite incident", and goes to Art Bell talking to a caller about how weird it was. I'm not sure why the second parts of the two are different, but I'm going to try and get a transcript of the original conversation to see the conversation unedited, because obviously one of the two has been tampered with, if not both.


Before this call was received, a man who called himself Steve and claimed to be a current employee at Area 51 carried on a conversation about some "secrets" he was privy to, and claimed to be be higher up in the heirarchy than the "Men in Black". For about a year after this night he was a frequent caller to the show. After the incident with "Brian", but before Brian's reappearance and "confession", Steve told Art Bell that he assumed that Brian had been seized by authorities and not killed, but brainwashed, and he predicted that he would be back on the show to "admit" it was a hoax, which did end up happening.

And according to

One of the first callers after the outage was someone who claimed to be
from Area-51 "security." He said that his job was to "close gaps," the
network had been "pulsed" and that we "would not hear from the caller
again." (An ElectroMagnetic Pulse is a method of overloading electronic
equipment in a target area; EMP generators were funded under the original
SDI research. The phenomenon was discovered by accident during the 1960's
when the phone network in Hawaii was disabled by a nuclear test 800 miles
distant.) Speculation about an EMP continued as this was "verified" by
several callers:

A man from Kingston (also near area 51) said he was on hold waiting to go
on the air, and both his home telephone lines went dead. Another caller,
an RF engineer employed at Hughes AeroSpace in Tucson (and an expert on EMP
shielding), stated that he had suffered "cloud bounce" from the pulse and
his personal computer and digital watch were wiped clean.

A third caller reminded the audience that author Nick Begich stated in his
book "Angels don't Play this HAARP" that a military antenna array in Alaska
has the capability to remove individual satellites from service and
generate such pulses. (Incidentally, the HAARP design bears a great
similarity to the work of Nikola Tesla, who publicly made claims about the
potential of his inventions to generate EMP anywhere on the planet.)

Finally, another caller reminded the audience of an event several months
prior where it was confirmed that a number of employees at the Cheyenne
Mountain nuclear-hardened underground base convinced as many friends and
family as they could to move immediately to a remote location in South

SIDENOTE: As of yet that fourth caller is the only reference I have found dealing with that Cheyenne Mountain thing.

Some good info an3!

I'll do whatever I can to help you out on this investigation.

I'm also in up to my neck wanting to know the details of the Cheyenne thing. Apparently it has been verified by many people that this did occur. Not sure about identities or cred but when several people report the same thing there has to be something to it.

I strongly believe that there is some truth in all things. I highly doubt that it is some completely fabricated lie, and more than likely there is much truth to it. Unfortunately I'm having quite a bit of trouble researching this; there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of information about it. Sifting through the endless articles about Cheyenne Mountain in general is quite the task when you're looking for a specific incident!

As for this whole Area 51 Employee thing, I'm a little exhausted by it. The fact is it was such a short-lived incident, a thing that happened in only a matter of minutes, and it happened 9 years ago, so finding solid information is hard.

By the way, if anyone knows more about voice comparison software, thinks they can decipher the weird graphs and stuff, you can download this cool shareware software, and try and analyze the two clips. It's not the software that I used, but this one's even better, in other words more complicated and technical. It'd probably be worth learning to use for future investigation potential, too.

Hey guys,just thought I'd add my two cents in here.I finished reading the whole thread a bit ago,and I gotta say great work looking into this thing.Especially you an3.Hope there is someone on here who can tell something from those graphs....lord knows I can't.

Anyway,as far as this call goes.I heard it a few months back,and I think it was on a torrent I downloaded of a lot of old Art Bell shows.In my opinion the first call sounds incredibly real,and like a lot of others have said,if he was acting he's a damn good actor.To me the first one sounds a little higher pitched....maybe because he was in "actor mode" or whatever.The "confession" sounds a bit lower,and sounds to me to have more of a "northern" sort of accent to it than the first.I'm no expert by ANY means so take that with a grain of salt.

I'm just hoping now that we can continue to get some more ATSers' opinions,and hopefully an3 will hear something from Art.I'm also gonna see if that torrent had any of the other episodes you guys were looking for,because I haven't even scratched the surface as far as listening to them.It'd take a long LONG time to go through them all.Well here's hoping we get something new on this.I'll be watching.

an3 and all others,

Thanks gang, as the author of this thread, I have to say that I am pretty impressed by all the feedback and curiosity! Add me to the list an3, you are getting some good info here!
I never imagined it would go this far, the thread that is, and now an3 and I have talked about getting hold of Art Bell himself. All this info is helpful and the opinions are cool to read!
Thanks again to everybody who seems to be as curious and active as they are, I am too!
Peace Again,

Yeah a lot of people say they think it's two different people. Another theory that I think somebody touched on is perhaps in the second call, the "confession", he may have been "possessed" or under some kind of control and therefore was not entirely himself which would help explain any difference in his speech pattern. Or he just might be a really good actor or just somebody who has some foreign chemicals running through his body or brain that make him act different. Maybe he's even got multiple personality disorder! But now I feel like I'm just begging for this to be anything but a hoax!

hopefully an3 will hear something from Art.

I'm not too hopeful on this. The fact is it happened almost nine years ago, he might not even remember the incident, even though the whole satellite thing should've burned it into his memory. Either way, I'm sure he gets a million emails a day, and he probably pays someone to sift through them and he only reads a select few. Who knows? Maybe I'll phone him this weekend if I feel up to it.

Thanks for starting such an interesting thread! It's opened up many doors of interesting research possibilities for me!

Unzip the file, then listen to the following playlists using Windows Media Player 9, and use loop/repeat mode.

Nicely done SteveR! Gonna have to give it another listen in the morning when my head is clear,but this should help shed a bit more light on the situation.On first listen they almost sound the same,but like I said before one seems a bit higher pitched (the original call).

Awesome work steve.

I may make a more comprehensive one later.

I would totally scream hoax if this hadn't happened on Sept. 11th and if the whole system didn't go down. And also didn't "Steve" call in on the same show and say that he had info to release that related to the date that his superiors wanted out there? That had to be one of the creepiest shows of all time.

Also just a note, I'm almost positive that you can be on the West Coast and call the East of the Rockies line and Art will announce as "East of the Rockies" when he takes your call. Especially back in the day when C2C didn't have screeners.

Has Art ever done a Area 51 line since? I can't recall him ever going back to this again? This probably spooked him something fierce of he was told plain and simple not to do this again, or maybe he doesn't want these things on his conscience?

Also, I would really love to hear more about the guy who called in while flying a plane into Area 51. That was such an intense phone call. I think it's been discredited in past but I really want to know more about it.

I think Art Bell has been accused of doing things for "entertainment purposes" (it's been said before that at some point JC became a inside character or job for the show) and I'm really curious to know if these were inside jokes. I dunno... interesting that we're still talking about this all over nine years after the fact though.

Just my thoughts for now, great thread. Hope to see it continue with more thoughts and ideas.

You know, when you feel pressure to keep your popularity going in order to maintain listeners it wouldn't be totally unheard of to "fill in" particularly slow periods with "seeded content".

I am going to load that voice recognition software and see if I can’t do something with it.

I'm not sure why but after reading this whole thread and listening to the audio from both phone calls this word kept coming to me. i had to look it up to see if it was a word and what it meant but it is stuck in my head after hearing those audio clips.

ou‧bli‧ette  /ˌubliˈɛt/ Pronunciation Key - Show Spelled Pronunciation[oo-blee-et] Pronunciation Key - Show IPA Pronunciation
a secret dungeon with an opening only in the ceiling, as in certain old castles.

A dungeon with a trapdoor in the ceiling as its only means of entrance or exit.

I have no idea why but its kinda of creepy after reading the meaning
ill let someone else try to come up with a reason. I just thought i would share this weird bit of info.

very interesting read so far i hope you guys doing research keep it up and keep posting the info you get on this thread.

thanks for the work.

Ok, here is analysis of approx 20 seconds from each call. I tried to match the voice levels as evenly as possible. Meaning, Brian sounded much less alarmed in the second call so I matched it up with the beginning segment of the first call before he got really stressed out.

You can see specifically in the spectrum analysis overlay that there is a definite difference in the voice pattern highs and lows. Although it is different, there are some significant similarities in the less stressed voice of Brian. I will continue to work on it when I can but based on what I have learned so far my guess is that it is in fact the same guy on both calls.

Good job jbondo.No freakin' way could I figure that program out.At this point I'm really not sure either way.I've been thinking,like some of you have said,perhaps this was all an "entertainment" segment on C2C.To me if it is,and Art,and the others didn't come right out and say it,then all credibility for that show is gone.

However,that's considering this isn't real.Still,the September 11th date is really intriguing.Not like they knew back then what would happen.Unless Art's show is gov't run,which is whole other can of worms,I guess.Like I said I really can't say either way right now.

Oh,and Dracmoor....did you watch Ghost Hunters last night? They were down in an oubliette in an Irish castle last night.Maybe that stuck in your mind?
