The Glowing Dial Page Update

Glowing Dial Page Update

Hello folks!
Just a note to say that I've made a few changes to The Glowing Dial Page at .

First, as previously announced, I have deleted The Glowing Dial Discussion List and have removed the link from the page's main menu at the left of the page. The reason once again for this deletion was that it wasn't really active and the information posted there by me was simply a duplication of what's already available on The Glowing Dial Archives Blog.

Secondly, I have added download links to all the previous episodes of the show which are listed at . This page is also known now as The Glowing Dial Archives and it is here that you can now download every past episode of the show.

Alternately, you can do this through your podcatcher program if you subscribe to the podcast that way. Just click on "feed" in your podcatcher program and a download link should be available for all past episodes as well as the episode currently running.

Once again, sorry about the current loss of The Glowing Dial LIVE. As mentioned on the page, my financial condition is dire indeed and I cannot afford the $20 a month that doing the Live show costs me. If someone were to donate that $20 on a regular basis, we would be able to continue with the Live show. To date, no one has volunteered that unfortunately. If someone is interested, I would have to have a firm commitment from them that the $20 monthly donation would continue. Please e-mail me at if you are interested in making this happen.

Thanks and I'll see you on the radio!
