A little bit of news from Motoringfile.com like we like to do and a fresh batch of Ask Chad. Some how we also ended up talking about NASCAR for a minute or two. Plus, like you will hear, a brand new sponsor under the White Roof.
Speaking of which, MINI of Allentown is open now and will be having their grand opening celebration on August 28th. The invited Todd and I for the party and we hope to see as many of you as we possibly can! Not only that, but Todd is going to be striping MINIs on the 29th (don’t ask, he filled all the slots) and Prime MINIster Joe twisted my arm enough to stay an extra day!
Before all of that is MTTS. Not sure about the rest of you, but we here at White Roof Radio are very excited! I’ll be posting more details about our upcoming coverage of the event soon, so stay tuned!
Mobile friendly MTTS Updates
Going on MTTS? Looking for something to get you even more excited about it while you wait for Woofcast 346? Have an iPhone/iPad/Android device and can’t access the MTTS website? Well Ladies and Gents, We’ve got you covered.
I have set up a page for MTTS Updates that is mobile friendly! It’s the same pages from the MTTS site, so when they update them there, they will update here as well. Go ahead, check it out. NOTE You will have to switch the mobile theme off for the page to display correctly. Once you do that, it should show up on your mobile device.
A few more pre-MTTS notes for you. If you are using an iPhone, open the app store and download the MINI Link app. If you are using any smart phone, now would be a good time to embrace Twitter. Once you do that, you can follow all of the WRR boys here. You can also get updates for MTTS from MINI USA by following @MTTS2010, @MTTS2010_east (if you are coming in from east of the Rockies) or @MTTS2010_west if you are coming in from west of the Rockies.
Woofcast 346 will be ready later today.
Woofcast #344, Part 2
Woofcast 346 is in the can and will be posted tomorrow night as usual. So, you folks get bonus goodness from WRR this week.
A quick note to our affliates; White Roof Radio will be running on a different schedule starting August 9th and continuing through until August 15th. Full details to follow this week.
Woofcast 344, part 2:
This week on an all new White Roof Radio, db wears both hats, Chad answers some questions and Michael drives a VW! Like we mention, Todd and Gabe weren’t available, so we soldiered on without them. Also helps to explain why my sound level is quite right. Not that big of a deal since all y’all tune in for the other guys instead.
Looking for part 2 of Woofcast 344? Check back Wednesday. No, really. Todd just got back from Vegas and needs a few days in an ice house to correct his body temperature.
Great Ask Chad questions this week too! If you have a question you would like our good man Chad to answer, shoot it over via email to email@example.com and we’ll get it answered.
Quick note to our affliates; White Roof Radio will be running on a modified schedule during MTTS. If you aren’t going, stay tuned in because we are planning some great coverage for you daily. Again, this will be happening during MTTS which is, oddly enough, starting a week after White Roof Radio turns 5! More on that later.
MTTS Headliner and Event update
With less than a month to go, our friend Gina Koutros from MINIUSA took some time from her hectic schedule to give us some updates about MINI Takes the States, which is shaping up to be the largest MTTS to date!
If you haven’t decided if you are going yet, don’t forget there will be a Countryman (R60) at each of the kick-off cities driving to Denver. If you wanted to see this MINI in person, now is the time to do it!
Once in Denver, besides all of the regular festival fun and games, there will be the MTTS Music Stage featuring local talent during the day, headlined by Blues Traveller! For those of you that caught them in ’08 during the Chicago leg of MTTS you remember what a great show they put on.
Finally, do not forget that MINIs in the Mountains has some cool stuff planned for us as well! And to make sure that you get all of the cool stuff available, you do want to register! It’s for a great cause and ensures that your goodie bag is waiting for you when you arrive. If you are planning on attending both events, make sure to get over to the MitM website and get registered.
If you aren’t able to attend any of the legs or the festivals in Denver and Winterpark, don’t sweat. White Roof Radio has your covered! We will be updating Twitter as we go, plus posting to the White Roof Radio Facebook page. If you want to make sure you are getting the good information, then you should also follow @MTTS2010 on Twitter too!
I’m just going to keep posting this
Dear valued White Roof Radio listener,
It would appear that we, as a group, have not being diligent enough in keeping an eye on the vital fluids that our MINIs require to be happy and healthy. Proof above from Eric Hall, MINI Service Manager for MINI of Ontario. As a reminder, here is a handy how-to video that should help you out.
You R56 owners can find the Yellow Loopy Thing, sans loop, on the passenger side, under the bonnet. It is still yellow and the procedure is still the same.
Next time you are spending time with other MINI Cooper owners, help spread the word. Before beginning the rally or sitting down for the meeting, gather everyone in the parking lot for an oil checking party! Fun for the whole family!
We at White Roof Radio truly care about your MINI and want you and your MINI to have many miles of happy, healthy motoring. So please, take a minute or 3 this week while you are getting fuel to pop the bonnet and check your oil. If you are low, head over to your nearest MINI dealer and the nice person at the parts desk will happily sell you a quart or two. No MINI dealer nearby, then punch up Detoit Tuned and Chad will get you sorted our in short order.
As usual, thank you for your time,
The boys at White Roof Radio
We missed a week and came back with a live show! If you missed it, you really should follow any of us on Twitter or like the WRR Facebook Fan page. If you would rather find out in other ways, sound off in the comments below and I will see about hookin’ you guys and gals up!
Ok, once the cake and drink segment of the show was out of the way, we got into news from Motoringfile.com like we like today. Big news from last week was the ’11 refresh and it capitalized the conversation.
We went long this week. You know we must have since the, part 1, is almost an hour long. Part 2 will be available later in the week (like Wednesday or Thursday).
