    BTW, Leo, is that ferry ever going to get to port? :) :)

    I was wondering if there is a list that shows all the stations your show is on.

    Love the show, great to hear! Any luck with affiliates in the Cleveland, OH area?

    BTW, this is personally satisfying for me because when I worked in sales for a local radio station a couple of years back and TechTV went by the boards, I suggested that they reach out to you and see if there was an opportunity to distribute you via their syndication arm (that distributes to public radio nationwide)…they blew me off…said it wouldn’t work! HA!

    Keep up the great work Leo!

    any chance for The Tech Guy appearing in the New York City market?

  9. Joey on October 7th, 2007 1:53 pm

    Nashville needs The Tech Guy too!!

    How about getting XM to broadcast channel 152 in Canada. I bought a XM to listen to the show only to find out that XM Canada does not offer channel 152.

    why does it end with ?, windows now thinks its a .p3? file and it doesnt work! Been like this for two weeks or so

  12. ac on October 7th, 2007 8:14 pm

    A url like produces the same problem, so it has to be podtrac’s problem

    I listen through Shoutcast in Mexico .CNI runs all of Leo’s shows day and night, it’s all I listen to.Keep up the great stuff! I actually wanted to comment on the new technology I saw on Wired from M.Soft with regards to virtual 3-D creation from photos. Think of what Google will do with this one! You know it’s coming.They already have the ground vehicles.

    What about National Public Radio– think Click & Clack, the Tappit Brothers, on Saturday mornings, or Ira Glass’s “This American Life.” You need a more aggressive agent (yourself) to get you out front and center where you belong! Remember “This Old House”? Can’t you just see Dvorak in overalls, busting chops?

    Glad to have you here (hear?) in Asheville, Leo!!
