Radio show update and New D2 Rule

Just wanted to update you guys with the latest about the radio show.

Been talking with RJ, who just got back from a great vaca with his wife. I won't bore you with the details. Then we went right to work talking about the radio shows.

We will be making a schedule change for 2012. Don't worry, I'll make sure you guys know about it when I figure it all out myself. We'll have all-new promos and plugs airing when we get all the details settled down.

One of the things that will also be going away real soon will be the "replays". In other words, if you missed last week's "Rock & Roll Diner", then you missed it, period. Same for "Hard Luck Chuck's Juke Joint" when it returns... thankfully, though, it will be back at an earlier time. Repeats during the normal scheduled time will still go on every so often, but there won't be the "second serving" if you missed out the first time around.

There will be a few more things going on that I can't talk about right now, but it will deal with one of the more nagging questions asked about the ShockNet Radio programs. Sufficient to say, for those that have asked, you'll get what you want, but it won't be AS you want it.

The radio show archive is still down because is still down. There is no ETA when it will be fixed. I just hope that iTunes doesn't decide to give up on it like they did the last time around. The previous shows are still in the Internet Archive, but Ourmedia is the engine that makes the links to iTunes possible, so no Ourmedia means no iTunes link. Sorry; I wish I had better news in that regard.

And finally...

New D2 Rule: the people who come up with slash-fanfic need to admit their own sexual preference.

Now I say that as a fiction writer myself... I understand Rule 34 and Rule 35, but just because you CAN create it doesn't mean that you should be poisoning every male friendship into something that you'd have to pay $19.95 a month for and making sure the kids aren't watching over your shoulder. Seriously guys, if you have that on your mind so much so that you have to write about it and share it for the world to see, then maybe there's something about your own lives that you have to be honest about.
