We also plan to offer a webcam feed that will be active during the LIVE shows via YouTube. The link for that is https://www.youtube.com/user/deejaybrick/live so those of you with strong stomachs can see what these silly hosts actually look like. We will even have the webcam up and streaming on certain Mondays when Steve and I are cutting new shows! Details on this at our Shows page and below.

With that being said, we'd love for you to join us as we stream LIVE tomorrow, Monday, August 7, 2017 starting at 10am EST. Steve and I and maybe a guest or two will be recording new episodes of The Glowing Dial. This particular LIVE cast will not be terribly structured but will allow you to see us "behind the scenes" as we record our tri-weekly podcast. There will be some moments where you will not hear sound. This is because you will only hear what passes through our mixer so don't worry that you've lost sound, the sound will return as soon as we pot our mixer up.

This problem won't exist with our actual LIVE shows as our mixer will always be up so no loss of sound will occur.

The archived LIVE shows will continue to be available at our Mixlr show page as well as our archives page at glowingdial.com. You'll even be able to watch our Webcam version of the LIVE show after the fact as we will be archiving these at our archive page at glowingdial.com as well as at YouTube. Make sure you subscribe to my channel there while you're watching.

See you on the radio ... literally!

The Glowing Dial LIVE will be returning to the air!!!

Hello Listeners!

Just a note to say that I'm planning on bringing The Glowing Dial LIVE back! I'm now planning on September and I think it will be as before, the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month from 4-7pm EST.


Trying to line up my co-hosts now. Hope they all can participate, at least on a rotating basis. No point in doing the show alone.


We'll once again have the ability for you, the listener to phone in and Skype in to chat with us and instant request a show. I'm really hoping that, by keeping the show going, we'll eventually pick up a larger audience than the handful we had before and I mean a literal handful.


Hopefully that handful will all come back and bring friends along too. I'd really like to see the LIVE show grow. 


Check here and at The Glowing Dial Page, http://www.glowingdial.com for details and show times when I announce them shortly.
