We'll feature your podcast in our next show (latest link: www.abovetopsecret.com... )
Keep 'em comin'!
If your refering to "The American Radio Relay League", no I'm not a member nor have I ever been associated with them. At one time (many moons ago),
while I considered checking out information on Ham Radio operations, I visited their site as it was a link that came up while I was "Googleing"
(oh-oh, I'm making up words now).
But what you probably do smell instead is a bit of stagnant creativity that was a part of my life years past. Unfortunately, the pay-scale didn't
seem to reflect the output and effort of the above said creativity, so moved into working in the television industry for awhile. It wasn't as
rewarding production wise, but the pay was a 'tad' better. How far back was this you ask? Well, we did all our mastering on a Ampex VTR & the size
of the video tape on the reels (yes, I said reels), were 2 inches tall and about 10" wide, (obviously long before Beta or VHS). The VTR (Video Tape
Recorder) stood about 5 feet tall by about 4.5 feet wide and weighed about 180 pounds (give or take). We called her "Big Bertha".
Anyway, those analog days are long gone and I'm still acclimating to the digital realm. My major problem is that once I get used to one technology, 6
months later it's out-of-date...lol.
Ok,, enough of this memory lane rant, I digressed, (coughs and clears throat) ahem, so no to the ARRL influence query (LOL).
As to the query of my face....
My face is more comfortable in front and more times behind a camera, but it's not afraid of a microphone... It's generally the engineer that will
scare me more as he plays with the potentiometers making me sound like "Yosemite Sam"...lol. Speaking of face, I've noticed lately that as I get up
in the morning and look at myself in the bathroom mirror, my Father stares back at me..... (insert audio of snare shot).
I appreciate and thank you for considering the Mondo Bizarro podcast in your next review.
I have two questions (if I may):
(1) Is the limit of 4 megs a cemented constant? If the podcast turned out to be 4.1megs (give or take) would it be rejected?
(2) Is there anyway to track the downloads of a personal podcast?
If the above queries have been answered somewhere else, my apologies for asking as I obviously missed them.
Many Thanks In Advance,
