Remember how anything worth knowing was heard on the radio? The morning news as everyone got going for the day ... the Minnesota Twins games ... the hottest, new, rockin' song ... or the school closings on snow days ... we heard it all on the radio! So wouldn't you agree that the radio is the best place to find out what's going on?
Just like everything in life, things change ... the radio might not be the box with dials that you remember ... now days it can come in many forms ... like online through your computer! You've gotta admit ... we spend a lot of time online so isn't it natural to assume it's the best place to listen to a radio show? You can login ... turn up the volume and go about your business listening to whatever you choose.
A little over a month ago, my friend Pat Sloan started an online radio show ... Creative Talk Radio. It's on the HerInspired network ... all the radio shows on the network are hosted by women like Pat. They have a variety of themes but Pat is focusing on anything creative. She's been interviewing lots of exciting people in the quilting industry ... more from other hobbies scheduled in the future.
Pat's Creative Talk Radio is live each Monday at 4pm Eastern time ... here in Minnesota I rush to the hideout a few minutes before three o'clock so I won't miss a second! But if I do it's ok because a few hours later, I'm able to listen to the broadcast again.
All you have to do listen to Pat each Monday is click RIGHT HERE and that will take you straight over to the radio site ... right under the banner is a blue button with a white arrow in it ... click that and the show will start to load. If you're a little bit early, don't worry ... you'll hear music until the show comes on. But right on the dot, the fun will begin with Pat's interview!
So lets say you're at work ... or in church or something ... and you can't listen at 4pm (3pm CST). It's so simple ... over on the right sidebar are the recent shows ... you can listen to any that you've missed or listen to them again if you enjoyed them a lot.
The current show usually loads up there a few hours after the live one ends. So if you're working a little late, you can download the show from iTunes ... then if you're stuck on 494 out on the Bloomington strip or are having to sit at 694 & 35E waiting for traffic to speed up, you'll be able to plug in your iPod and your trip home will be so much more fun!
I'm so excited to tell you I'm going to be a guest on Pat Sloan's Creative Talk Radio on February 22! Actually ... Pat has asked me to come on once a month to chat about things I've found in the quilting and craft industry ... pretty exciting! (A little bit nerve wracking, too.)
Pat's other guests on the 22nd will be the people who manufacture the Reliable Iron that Pat uses and loves ... as well as Jenny Doh ... the former editor-in-chief of Stampington magazine. Jenny's going to talk about what sparks her creativity and about her new venture that'll begin on March 1.
PLUS ... Reliable Corp is going to give away a free iron and Jenny has some giveaways, too! Listen to the show and read Pat's blog to get all of the details. Leave a comment on her blog telling what your favorite part of the show was and you may be a winner. You have until noon on Friday, February 26 to do that so don't forget.
I love old stuff but I really love new ways of doing things, too. Pat's radio show on the internet is just the best ... I know you'll be circling Monday afternoons on your calendar because you're not going to want to miss a thing!!
