Iâ€™m pleased to report that the launch of my new online radio show is near. The next time you hear from me, it will be an alert that the first program is posted online. You are part of the Peter B. â€œbaseâ€ of supporters, and the first to know of our plans.
Many of you have already been listening on the internet, so it will be easier for you to connect to our series of Podcasts at www.peterbcollins.com, at iTunes, or at www.RootsUpRadio.com.
If you donâ€™t understand podcasting, please be assured that you donâ€™t need to have an iPod or even go to iTunes to hear the show. You can just visit www.peterbcollins.com and find the latest shows. You can listen right there on demand, or go to iTunes (for free) and subscribe to have the show downloaded to you computer right after we release it. You can then listen to the show on your computer, or transfer it to a CD or MP3 player, including an iPod or iPhone.
When we signed off of AM radio in March, many of you pledged to subscribe to our podcast series. Some of you even made advance payments of up to a yearâ€”thanks! If you are able, please stop by peterbcollins.com and click on â€œYou Can Helpâ€ You can make a one time contribution, or (soon) you can set up a monthly subscription at the amount of your choice.
And if you know of possible advertisers or sponsors, please let me know!
With your support, I will be able to deliver 2 or 3 podcasts each week, with 45 minutes to an hour on each episode. Iâ€™m pleased to tell you that Katrina Rill will continue as my producer, helping me shape the topics and lining up great guests to talk with. We are ready to bring you more greatâ€”well, I guess I still think of them as â€œradio programsâ€â€”but they will be on your computer instead of your radio. With the right accessories, you can even listen in the car.
So stand by for our next communiquÃ©!
