The Glowing Dial LIVE adds Facebook LIVE feed!

Hello Glowing Dial LIVE listeners. I did some feeble testing tonight and I think we should be able to go LIVE with video on YouTube as well as Facebook simultaneously!

For YouTube, just go to http://www.glowingdial.com/live-show.html and click on the YouTube link below the Mixlr player. For Facebook LIVE, just click on Facebook on the page menu to the left. Once at our Facebook page, go to the menu, also on the left, and click Videos (you should see a LIVE icon there). Then the LIVE show should appear and start playing.

If you have any problems with the Facebook LIVE connection, please e-mail me and let me know. I'm no expert here but I'll try to help you all I can.

We're trying this for the first time so there may be some buggies to be worked out. Stay with us please.

Our usual Audio-only feed of the LIVE show will still be there.

See you on the air!

Update on The Glowing Dial LIVE

Hello listeners.

Well, there was supposed to be a LIVE show today but it had to be cancelled. 

New job and other issues are the cause of this. I really hope to get back on track doing regular monthly LIVE shows in December. The next planned episode is December 17. Dates for 2018 will be posted soon although they will always be on the 3rd Sunday of the month at the same time, 4pm to 7pm EST.

I hope you make a point to listen and participate with us. I hope to build a larger audience for the LIVE show in the future.

Thanks for reading and we'll see you on the radio!
