Regarding The Glowing Dial on The Olde Tyme Radio Network

Hello friends, I want to apologize to those of you who listen to our show over at Jerry Haendiges' Olde Tyme Radio Network. For some reason, our Christmas show and so far, our New Year's show haven't been posted there. I am in contact with Jerry to try to resolve this issue. In the meantime, you can still go to The Glowing Dial Page and click on "Shows" on the left menu to hear our latest episode.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone!
