The Glowing Dial episode POD47 delays UPDATE

Hello listeners, so very sorry that episode POD47 still hasn't premiered. Should have been up Nov. 27. As mentioned before, I have been ill for at least 3 weeks. Several health problems that I really shouldn't go into here but they all hit more or less at once and have been very debilitating. Starting to come back to the land of the living and hope to have the show edited and posted sometime tomorrow (hopefully). I'll do my level best to make this happen and at least the show can air for 1 of its intended 3 weeks. It will always be in the Archives if you miss it on the remainder of its first run.

I am surprised that I got the Live show done on Nov. 27, that's was kind of in the middle of all this health fiasco. I hope to do another Live show this Sunday from 4 to 7pm Eastern time. I am not a praying man but I do ask you to send some positive healing energy my way. Who knows, maybe it will help.

Thanks, Big John Matthews

The Glowing Dial LIVE Halloween Show!

Hello my devoted fans:

Just wanted to invite you all to listen to our first Glowing Dial LIVE Halloween show this Sunday, October 30th from 4pm to approx. 11:30 pm EST. The longer running time is so that, after the LIVE portion, we can present our 2003 War Of The Worlds Tribute show.
 
The Tribute will include the Mercury Theatre original (timed to hit at 8pm EST as it did 78 years ago), some interviews with Orson Welles and company, the excellent WKBW, Buffalo remake plus our own tongues-planted-firmly-in-cheek version of the classic radio play.

The LIVE portion of the show will feature myself and my co-hosts Stu and Greg (and even a few friends thrown in for good measure).
We'll be playing some spooky old time radio shows, reading a few spooky poems and sharing some of our spooky but real stories.
We invite you, our listeners to call in and share some of your ghostly goings-on as well.

You can Skype us by searching for The Glowing Dial LIVE and adding us to your list of contacts or you can simply phone us at 248-221-2011. Please remember to only Skype or call during LIVE show times and wait until we "open the Skype/phone lines" before calling.

We'll even have a trivia question (not too difficult). Be the first one to answer the question either via Skype, phone or our chat room and you will win a nifty Horror and Suspense OTR Sampler (about 15 shows) on a convenient USB flash drive! Of course, if you're the winner, we'll need you to e-mail us with your mailing address so we can get your prize out to you.

You can hear the show by going to http://www.glowingdial.com/shows.html where there is an embedded player.
You can alternately go to our Mixlr LIVE Page at http://mixlr.com/glowingdial to hear the show there.
Just sign in at our Mixlr LIVE Page and you can join us in the chat room while the show is on.

The fun all starts at 4pm EST, Sunday October 30, 2016!

Hope to see you all on the radio!

Best to all, Big John Matthews

Reminder: The Glowing Dial LIVE Premieres This Sunday!!!

Hello fellow old time radio fans!

We're still on track for the October 16th premiere of The Glowing Dial LIVE! We hope all of you will be there listening! It will mean a lot to me if you are, this being the first show and all. We might have an event happening too, all 3 of my co-hosts there at once! Here's hoping.

The show starts at 4pm Eastern and goes to 7pm Eastern. We have some fun stuff planned and that includes YOU! Yes, we want you to call in to the Live show! You'll need Skype for this so download it if you don't already have it. Our Skype account is: The Glowing Dial LIVE. LIVE is supposed to be in all caps. Find us and make us one of your regular contacts! Remember NOT to call until I ask for calls as we may have an interview going on beforehand.

We plan to talk to our own Jerry Haendiges. I'm also going to try to get Martin Grams, Jr. prolific author of many books on old time radio! I'll even be playing all our old Celebrity Interviews from the late 90s from time to time!

All the details of the Live show are on my webpage at http://www.glowingdial.com. Just click on "Shows" on the menu to the left for the skinny (no, not me, I'm rotund as you all know).

On October 30th, we're doping our Halloween Live show with lots of goodies planned, but after the show, don't go anywhere because at 7:30pm Eastern, I will come back on the air and I'll be playing our 2003 Glowing Dial tribute to War Of The Worlds. It will be timed so that The Merciry Theatre's version of WOTW will start right at 8pm Eastern, just like it did on CBS 78 years ago to the night. Of course, part of that tribute is our own tongue-planted-firmly-in-cheek version of WOTW, a classic to be sure ... or is it?

And we have our latest episode of The Glowing Dial tri-weekly podcast also premiering this Sunday, October 16! Look for the announcement here that morning.

That's all for now, please pass the word about the LIVE show.

See you on the radio!
Big John Matthews

Update: posting of shows to other outlets

Hey all!

I have just finished uploading all our shows to YouTube!
As well, I have also uploaded all our shows to The Internet Archive!
I'm looking into creating a Roku channel for The Glowing Dial too. More info on this as I progress with this project.

An update on the posting of shows on YouTube and other stuff

Hello listeners!

As I have mentioned before, I have been working on uploading all our episodes to YouTube. So far, I have all the "POD" shows and all the "NET" shows up on YouTube. Will start uploading all the old Yesterday USA shows very soon.

We have also been approved on Google Play Music, which has just recently started accepting podcasts! Google Play Music works just like iTunes or any podcatcher program. When you subscribe, each new episode I post will automatically download to your device of choice.

The links for YouTube and Google Play Music are on our show list page at http://www.glowingdial.com/shows.html.

For some odd reason, when I click on the Google Play Music link, I have to click my back arrow once to actually get to our show page there. Your experience might not be the same. Let me know if you have problems. Right now, I don't know how to fix this. It'll still get you there, it's just a bit of a pain in the arse.

I also have been working on our show list page and correcting a lot of information that was either wrong or missing at the time. That link is http://www.glowingdial.com/archived_shows_list.html

This is just a list, there are no active download links there, the page is just for information on our shows.

That's all for now, stay tuned for the next episode of The Glowing Dial, POD43, which will be premiering September 4, 2016!

See you on the radio!

The Glowing Dial on YouTube and Google Play Music -- UPDATE

Hi listeners!

As I mentioned in a post a few days ago, The Glowing Dial is now available on YouTube and Google Play Music! Google Play Music has all our episodes, past and present and will automatically update when a new show is posted by me, just like iTunes and any of your podcatcher programs. I'll upload every new episode to YouTube at the same time it becomes available everywhere else. It will take some time to upload all the old Glowing Dial shows to YouTube because, as I mentioned in my last post on this, they all have to be uploaded 1 at a time. I'll get there but just give me some time please.

The links for YouTube and Google Play Music are on our web page. Just go to http://www.glowingdial.com and click on "Shows" on the menu at the left. Scroll down a bit and you'll see their respective logos. Click on either one to subscribe. If the links don't work right, please e-mail me and I'll try to fix them as soon as I can.
