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)!

With that being said, we'd love for you to join us as we stream LIVE tomorrow, Monday, August 7, 2017 starting at 10am EST. Steve and I and maybe a guest or two will be recording new episodes of The Glowing Dial. This particular LIVE cast will not be terribly structured but will allow you to see us "behind the scenes" as we record our tri-weekly podcast. There will be some moments where you will not hear sound. This is because you will only hear what passes through our mixer so don't worry that you've lost sound, the sound will return as soon as we pot our mixer up.

This problem won't exist with our actual LIVE shows as our mixer will always be up so no loss of sound will occur.

The archived LIVE shows will continue to be available at our Mixlr show page as well as our archives page at glowingdial.com. You'll even be able to watch our Webcam version of the LIVE show after the fact as we will be archiving these at our archive page at glowingdial.com as well as at YouTube. Make sure you subscribe to my channel there while you're watching.

See you on the radio ... literally!

The Glowing Dial LIVE will be returning to the air!!!

Hello Listeners!

Just a note to say that I'm planning on bringing The Glowing Dial LIVE back! I'm now planning on September and I think it will be as before, the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month from 4-7pm EST.


Trying to line up my co-hosts now. Hope they all can participate, at least on a rotating basis. No point in doing the show alone.


We'll once again have the ability for you, the listener to phone in and Skype in to chat with us and instant request a show. I'm really hoping that, by keeping the show going, we'll eventually pick up a larger audience than the handful we had before and I mean a literal handful.


Hopefully that handful will all come back and bring friends along too. I'd really like to see the LIVE show grow. 


Check here and at The Glowing Dial Page, http://www.glowingdial.com for details and show times when I announce them shortly.

The Glowing Dial Page is back on the net!

Hello listeners!

Good news! I have finally been able to get in touch with my web guy and all is fixed now and The Glowing Dial Page is back up in it's entirety! I have gotten behind in editing and posting of shows due to some health and personal issues, not to mention current computer issues. But I am continuing forward and attempting to get The Glowing Dial Show POD56 edited and premiered, hopefully later today. Trying to get this done on a temperamental computer too! POD56 will only run until June 24 but don't worry, it will always be available in the Archives if you miss it this time around. Look for a post later today announcing the premiere of POD56.

See you on the radio!
