The Glowing Dial LIVE will be starting up very soon!

Hello listeners, I have some great news for everybody!

The Glowing Dial LIVE
with Big John and Company

Yes, we're about to start broadcasting The Glowing Dial LIVE with Big John and Company! This will be an extension of our ongoing tri-weekly podcasts which will continue as usual.

With the LIVE show, we hope to be able to take calls from you, our listeners! You can call in (one at a time for now) via SKYPE and talk with us and even request old time radio shows!
If we have the show at hand, we'll play it for you almost immediately! There will also be a chat room active during the show so you can chat with us! You'll probably have to go to http://mixlr.com/glowingdial to access the chat room.
We'll see after the bugs are worked out of this new system.
The Glowing Dial LIVE will most likely air on Sundays from 4pm to 7pm EST. A premiere date is still being worked out and at this point we may only do 1 show per month, maybe 2.

The show will be able to be heard LIVE at our website glowingdial.com on our Shows page where you have been going for our tri-weekly podcasts. Don't worry, we'll make sure you know when the next show will be. Check our Shows page as well as our Facebook Page, Blog and Discussion List for updates and show dates!

Nothing to hear right now except two test broadcasts we did yesterday.

We want all our listeners to tell all your otr friends about this because we want to be broadcasting to a lot of people, not just ourselves. We hope that you'll also call in via SKYPE to talk to us about otr and things nostalgic as well as request shows like I said above. Also make sure you comment via Facebook and Twitter so all your friends can learn about us. Start following us thru Mixlr too.

A big thanks to Adam Savage (former Mythbuster) and his blog, which is where I learned about Mixlr. Wish us luck with this venture and remember too, we can use any donations you might be able to send our way. You can just go to glowingdial.com and just below the menu to the left, there is a donate icon so you can donate securely thru PayPal. We're working on a Patreon page too.

Thanks so much and remember to keep checking, we may go live sometime in October!

See you on the radio!

An update on the posting of shows on YouTube and other stuff

Hello listeners!

As I have mentioned before, I have been working on uploading all our episodes to YouTube. So far, I have all the "POD" shows and all the "NET" shows up on YouTube. Will start uploading all the old Yesterday USA shows very soon.

We have also been approved on Google Play Music, which has just recently started accepting podcasts! Google Play Music works just like iTunes or any podcatcher program. When you subscribe, each new episode I post will automatically download to your device of choice.

The links for YouTube and Google Play Music are on our show list page at http://www.glowingdial.com/shows.html.

For some odd reason, when I click on the Google Play Music link, I have to click my back arrow once to actually get to our show page there. Your experience might not be the same. Let me know if you have problems. Right now, I don't know how to fix this. It'll still get you there, it's just a bit of a pain in the arse.

I also have been working on our show list page and correcting a lot of information that was either wrong or missing at the time. That link is http://www.glowingdial.com/archived_shows_list.html

This is just a list, there are no active download links there, the page is just for information on our shows.

That's all for now, stay tuned for the next episode of The Glowing Dial, POD43, which will be premiering September 4, 2016!

See you on the radio!

The Glowing Dial on YouTube and Google Play Music -- UPDATE

Hi listeners!

As I mentioned in a post a few days ago, The Glowing Dial is now available on YouTube and Google Play Music! Google Play Music has all our episodes, past and present and will automatically update when a new show is posted by me, just like iTunes and any of your podcatcher programs. I'll upload every new episode to YouTube at the same time it becomes available everywhere else. It will take some time to upload all the old Glowing Dial shows to YouTube because, as I mentioned in my last post on this, they all have to be uploaded 1 at a time. I'll get there but just give me some time please.

The links for YouTube and Google Play Music are on our web page. Just go to http://www.glowingdial.com and click on "Shows" on the menu at the left. Scroll down a bit and you'll see their respective logos. Click on either one to subscribe. If the links don't work right, please e-mail me and I'll try to fix them as soon as I can.
