Reverend Dave ,

I’m willing.

I suspect that Steve Ford’s retirement may have caused the show to end production.

Well then.

I am willing to host the show with the good doctor. I have 40 years experience as an AFTRA/SAG talent, I have my own ProTools system, and I just retired so I have the time.

I await your response.

(This was a great podcast, best produced by ARRL. Thanks Steve and Joel for your service!)

Please Bring This Show Back!

I need to hear from people with experience. The other shows are entertaining in a stilted way but I’m at the point where I need practical information and there’s guys are entertaining.

N9JKP ,

Cancelled?!

Great podcast. So sorry to hear that it’s been cancelled. I know they are going in a “different direction”, let’s hope it will be as good.
