Exchange between Larry King and Art Bell on Larry King Live, March 5, 1999:
KING: Why is it called Y2K? BELL: 2000 -- simple 2000, 2-0-0-0. KING: And the Y? BELL: I don't have a slightest idea. KING: Who put a Y in there? BELL: Two -- 2K is 2000. But Y2K? KING: Year 2000 -- that's what it could be. BELL: Year 2000.Obviously Larry and Art were demonstrating "channelling" with the spirits of Bud Abbott and Lou Costello.
