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!

YouTube cast this morning and LIVE Show Update

Hello Listeners, 

Once more, my apologies for the lateness of the premiere of episode POD62 of our tri-weekly podcast. I have had health problems recently (quite often of late) plus lost my job and had to go on an immediate search for a new one. Found a new one fairly quickly so I hope things will even out soon. 

Steve and I will be cutting 3 new podcasts today and you can view the progress LIVE on YouTube! We'll start things up at about 10:00am EDT today, Monday, October 23, 2017. Just go to https://www.youtube.com/user/deejaybrick/live to see us in the process of cutting these new podcasts. The cast will go for a few hours at least, not sure how long it will go for sure however, it will be available on YouTube afterwards if you have the stomach to watch it all!

Because of the above mentioned problems, we did not do the LIVE show this month at all. Sorry again. I know our LIVE shows have been spotty but we are switching to the 3rd Sunday of each month from now on and the next shows will be on November 19 and December 17, 2017 from 4pm to 7pm EST. Just go to our website http://www.glowingdial.com and click on LIVE Show on the menu to the left for the latest info on that.

See you on the radio (and later on today on YouTube)!
