READERS' FEEDBACK: How & When to listen

  • Can see player but can't hear
  • Not HOW, but WHEN

Would love to hear your show....but have clicked on .mp3 etc waited.....comes up to player but no sound.

DearPATG,
The screen can look different depending on your computer's "default" audio player. It might be Windows Media Player, Music Match, iTunes, RealOne Audio, Quicktime, etc. You probably have to click the ARROW button (the one pointing to the right, but it is usually on the left.) That is the "PLAY" control button. There are also buttons for pause, stop, etc. These control buttons look a lot like the control buttons on a DVD or tape recorder.

DearMYRTLE,
Found the "How To" but not the WHEN to listen. What time is the "Live" show?

DearFRED,
The "live" show is no more. Its "pre-recorded." When interviewing international guests, its just easier and provides for better sound quality.  Soooooooooooo....

WHEN - Once the show page goes live (sometime Tuesday evening before 9pm) it is linked on the main page of:
www.DearMYRTLE.com. Then the show is available 24/7 from then on. 

Another way to tell WHEN - is to make note that ol' Myrt here:
-- sends out a notice through DearMYRTLE-L
-- posts it on her blog
-- makes a posting on DearMYRTLE's message board
within minutes of testing to be sure that the new show is available.

This past week I put up the file about five hours ahead my arbitrary 9pm deadline. However, we're finding that a lot of folks are clicking to listen right at 9pm Eastern, so page takes a longer time to load then. If that's a problem for you, just try again later, anytime 24/7.

REMEMBER, each show has its own page, complete with clickable "LINKS WE MENTION" during the show. The way ol' Myrt writes the show page is to listen to the final radio show audio file and take notes, verifying that each link
is accurate.

Happy family tree climbing!
Myrt      :)
