Radio Show Tonight!

February might be a short month, but that doesn’t mean you get to escape.

RADIO SHOW TIME!

The big button above (or this link) will take you to my radio show profile page.  The show will go live at 10pm Eastern time tonight.  Click on the big-ass button above or click the link to stop by and listen in! At 10pm, a “Click to Listen” button will appear on my profile page there and you can click that to stream the show live.  Or, for the adventurous, you can call in and talk to me on the air. The call-in number is:

(646) 915-8720

That being a New York phone number (and definitively not mine), long distance charges may apply. However, there should be a “click to talk” button, which should in theory allow anyone with a microphone connected to their computer to click the button and talk to me directly over VOIP free of charge.   I can have up to 5 callers on the line at one time.  I’ve never had it cap out, but hey, that’s a good potential problem to have, huh?

In the interest of full disclosure, anyone who calls in will have their phone number pop up on my little host switchboard.  (The Click-to-Talk people pop up as calling in from 000-000-0000 if memory serves.)  I swear on my honor as a Virginian, I have never written down or otherwise saved the phone number of anyone who’s called my show, and have no intention of doing so.   I figure anybody who wants me to have their phone number knows my email address and can give it to me explicitly.  But I wanted to be completely above board with this, just on the off chance that somebody wasn’t entirely comfortable with the idea that I might see their number.  End aside.

There’s a minor change-up this time:  when 10 rolls around, the chick with the snooty British accent will say “BlogTalkRadio!” and before yours truly will be drawlin’ on the airwaves, there should be a 30-second snippet of music:  my theme song!  Woo!  Recorded just for this tidbit.  It’s supposed to feel like a motorcycle ride and smell like lemon squares, according to Dys and Beej.  You can tell me if I’m successful.

As usual, I’ll also open a chat room window for those who are interested – but I’m not sure how much attention I’ll be paying to it.  My guess is that the more folks I have on the line, the less time I’ll be watching the chat window.  But I am just winging this whole thing, after all, so whatever.

The show is scheduled for an hour.  That means that when 11:00 rolls around, the “Click to Listen” button goes away, the listening window goes dead, and nobody else can call in.  However, anybody already on the phone will still be good to go – and the show will keep recording until I hang up.  Even though nobody can listen live, it’s still being recorded for the archives. In other words, if we’re having fun, the show can run long.  In the past, we’ve generally ended up soon after the hour is over, but if things are REALLY rolling along, why stop the party bus?

There is never a set topic – on my own mind are February topics of romance, winter, when will this fucking winter ever end, snow, Valentine’s Day, and winter.  I contemplated having each caller tell a story about a romantic moment or a kiss (favorite or most amusing), but I haven’t decided whether I’ll be that cruel quiet yet.  But hey, the MotoGP testing season has started again, so let that be a threat.  Contribute to the discussion or you get an hour of me microanalyzing the days’ testing times.

It’s important to add that if there are any problems with the show, check here for updates.  If any technical snafus pop up, I’ll post up here.

Hope to hear from some of you tonight!

  1. There’s a 50/50 chance I’ll be calling in tonight, benefit stuff and work may take me longer than I’m hoping, but I’ll try!

    Hey, do whatcha gotta do. I’ll still respect you in the morning. 😉
