Hi Everyone! As some of you know I am now a regular commentator on the KeithX Blog Talk Radio channel brought to you by BBChatter & their fabulous VIP room. This program runs each Friday evening at 10 EST and is the original Big Brother radio program in its 15th year running which is amazing!
Anyone call call in and discuss the current season of big brother so I thought I would write up a quick “how to” for those new to online radio.
1.We use Skype to connect. If you don’t have Skype, its free and easy to download. Create an account with a name people will recognize such as your twitter ID or your actual name. Download Skype Here. (http://www.skype.com/en/download-skype/skype-for-computer/)
2.Have a headset w/microphone. Don’t try and speak through your computer’s internal mic as it isn’t clear enough for radio transmission.
3.The KeithX Blog Talk Radio channel can be found here. (http://www.blogtalkradio.com/keithx) It will look like the photo posted below. You need to click on the top open lines link for that Friday under “Upcoming Broadcasts.”
4.That will take you to the current open line broadcast of BB Chatter’s Friday night Big Brother discussion. Remember, the lines open at 7PST/10EST. There will be a countdown above the radio stream. As soon as the lines are open it will say the show is on air and there will be a small “S” Skype call in button you can click on. Follow the skype prompts from there. Once you are connected, if you want to talk to the host and be “on air “you must “click 1” on the Skype dial pad.
It’s a ton of fun both to listen to and to call in. We don’t always agree with each other but we do respect everyone’s right to express their own idea. I hope you tune in and don’t be shy about calling in as we would all love to talk to you.
If you are one of our special guests, I hope that these instructions on how to call in were of help to you. If you need any further help, don’t hesitate to contact me using the form below or DM me on Twitter @Catvanzyl – Cat
