Deep Purple's Ian Gillan on the Shiny

The Shiny celebrates episode 90 with an interview with Ian Gillan. Ian gives the Shiny a half an hour of his time. Time well spent. I forgot to tell him my cousin named his son after him. But, I'm sure he hears that all the time.

Technical Problems: The Awakening

I will get my own web page. I will. And from it, I can free myself from Odeo. Oh they've been nice in the past. A free service. But you get what you pay for. Free means unreliability. I cannot do that to you people. I refuse. A change is going to come and I want you to come along. I'm not giving up. Let's do this.
Stay positive,

Technical Problems...mean extreme measures!

Hey friends,
It's not as if I don't have episodes ready to go. Why, I have six lined up for take off the moment the interweb lets me do it. Since I've had some tech problems in the past, I'm planning a break for my own .com. When this happens. I'ma let y'alls know.
Thanks for sticking in there. You're great. You, too.

Hang In There!!!

Hey good peoples,
The Shiny as it is wont to do is having tech problems. This is why we are tardy in posting ep 83 with former Boom Chicago director Dave Buckman. I am predicting that A Slice of the Shiny Podcast will be up again in about a week.
Go outside. There. Much better.
