Oops

As Krusty the Clown would say…”don’t blame me, I didn’t do it.” I had a new show up for Viva Radio to stream tonight. That they rebroadcast the July 21st episode is beyond my control. I just finished preparing the August 4th show so I’ll try to have them stream what should have been the [...]

Viva es Viva!

At least for now. Sometime yesterday Viva went into a coma. It’s a techmical problem (they ran out of disk space). I haven’t heard an ETR. Ah well… Updated: Everything is back to normal. Whew.

As a result, east coast listeners get to hear me three hours earlier than [...]

Social media?

Ok, so…over there on the right there are little icons that are links to the EBS Facebook and Twitter thingies. I have no idea what I should be using those sites for, in order to promote the Emergency Broadcast System. Can someone ‘splain me what to do? I’m not very social-media-ey.

I have a promo spot on Viva Radio!

I was a little surprised and much amused when Ted at Viva chose the Englebert Humperdinck song “Quando, Quando, Quando (When Will You Be Mine)” from my first episode as the musical bed for my promo. I’m guessing it was a track that he felt …ummm set me apart from other Viva Radio DJs. Ted’s [...]
