The Glowing Dial POD47 will be late but there will be a LIVE show today

Hello folks!

I have to apologize again for not having the latest episode of The Glowing Dial ready. It should have premiered today but will be along as soon as I can edit it and upload it. Been ill for over a week and everything got behind.

We are, however going to do a Glowing Dial LIVE show today, November 27 from 4 to 7pm Eastern. Please tune in for that. We'll have some great old time radio shows plus a trivia question where you can win an old time radio sampler of Science Fiction shows!

Listen at or at our Mixlr Live Page at . Join us in our chat room there as well.

Don't forget, we'll be accepting your calls via Skype and telephone too!

Skype us by searching for The Glowing Dial LIVE then making it one of your favorite spots.

Call us at 248-221-2011.

Hope you can all listen in!
