    As a Rain City Guide contributor, I’m really looking forward to this event at 4pm today! (Even if I was not an author at RCG, I would be).

    See, I mean, hear you at 4!

    Where on the dial?

    It’s an online/call-in show, which is why I put “radio” in quotes :) — the links above explain how to listen in via phone if you want. Meantime, though it’s not completely finalized yet, there’s a good chance we will be making an over-the-air old-fashioned radio appearance next week … stay tuned for more on that if/when it is confirmed.

    You can dial this:

    Phone Number: (724) 444-7444
    Call ID: 17904

    Check out the link WSB has above so you can see the “on line” chat that goes on as well. It’s a lot of fun.

    Everything is ready to go… and I just wanted to encourage WSB readers to join in the conversation!

Sorry, comment time is over.
