A note about the missed episodes of The Glowing Dial.

Hi folks, at long last I have finally been able to work on the show again. The latest episode of The Glowing Dial, POD76, Premieres today, late of course. It should have gone up July 29, but, as most of you know who have read these posts, I have had a lot of health problems and hospitalizations this year. Finances are a total mess because of missed work (I no longer have my part time job). I'm hoping things will get better in the very near future. Send positive thoughts my way please.

As for shows POD 71 thru 75, which did not have normal premieres, well they will be posted directly to our Archived Shows section of The Glowing Dial Page. We're in the process of cutting and editing those right now.

For those of you who get our show in their podcatcher programs, These episodes will show up there just as the new ones do when they are edited and uploaded so keep an eye out for them.

The LIVE show is currently on hold due to my health and financial issues. We will return to it when we are able.

See you on the radio!

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!
Big John Matthews
