The Story of Woofcast #291
Once upon a time, in a desert far far away, there was a MINI Cooper event called AMVIV. And it was good.
Todd and I were there. You saw the photos and the video, right? I mean, we were in Vegas for the whole weekend. Heck, we even did a live show. And that show is the missing Woofcast; number two hundred ninety one. Performed live in front of about 12 people.
A show that Todd and Sherwin both recorded. One via audio, one via video. Great.
Or, maybe not. Todd’s MacBook was unruly that day and produced a recording that sounded like it was filtered through steel wool and crushed brick. When checking the audio from Sherwins camera, it sounded like we woke up after a night of cigar smoking and gargled with coal and razor blades.
To make matters worse, we couldn’t get our schedules together last week to do a show.
I have looked at most of the video and there is some there that’s not horrible that I will be uploading to WhiteRoof.tv later in the week.
We will be recording a show this week for sure. It’s looking like Saturday and I’ll try to talk Todd into letting us do it live.
Don’t worry, you can still go over to Motoringfile and catch up on the news, or go through the Archives here. MINI United is coming up, now would be a good time to listen to episodes from ’07 you might have missed.
WRR Update – Stats for 2008
First thing I would like to do is thank everyone for getting us to 60 reviews on iTunes before AMVIV! You guys are awesome, and there is time to spare. Do I hear 70?
And, for those of you that are curious (and because I just can’t help myself), for the year that was 2008…
- Almost 110k of you visited whiteroofradio.com almost 300K times
- We pushed 1.2 TeraBytes of show out. That’s 1200GB
- You downloaded 384K episodes!
- Woofcast 30, 36 & 119 were all downloaded almost 11K times each
Sure, that’s not the greatest traffic or huge numbers for a podcast by any means, but I am more than a little pleased!
Thanks and keep it up!
Watch later in the week for a brand new event cast! That’s right, Michael and I revivied it and and new one will be out this week!
White Roof Radio Returns LIVE!
After taking a 5 week hiatus, we will be back on it starting with Woofcast 275. We will be broadcasting live on Thursday, November 6th, 2008 at 7:00PM PST. Keep an eye on Motoringfile.com and Whiteroofradio.com for details the day of the event.
We’ve been at this for over 3 years now and have over 400 shows under our belt that have been recorded all over the world! Our break has given us the chance to rest, make some changes and get excited about doing the show again.
See you on Thursday!
WRR v2.0 Update
The break has been nice to say the least. Again, thank you to everyone for your patience while we take this time off! For me, break time is over and it’s time to let you in on what’s happening.
- Our first show back will be Woofcast 275 to be recorded on November 6th LIVE. Mark your calendars now! I will post specifics that week or the week before.
- New voicemail line is up and running. I will be contacting some of you about a special project involving that later today.
- I have picked out about a half dozen new theme song possibilities. I will be posting those for you next week after we narrow down the list.
- We are working on ways to get you guys in on the action more often that not. Including more live shows!
We are starting back a week later than I originally told you because we really want to get the elections behind us first. You can thank me for that later.
So just a little bit longer until we’re back. Like I already mentioned, thank you for your patience!
As far as I can tell…
WRR.com is now iPhone/iPod touch friendly.
I did notice, however, that it only grabs the excerpts and you need to click more to get to the actual show.
Oh yea, and the flash player doesn’t work. But I’m sure all y’all knew that already .
Enjoy! Woofcast will be posted later tonight!
The Next Show
It all started last week. Todd and I had the best of intentions and actually got together on our normal night to record it. It was going well until my Skype, yet again, started acting up. But I was also recording.
So, yea. For Woofcast 211 we are taking a mulligan. It wasn’t anything anyway, just a bit of filler.
Can I recommend a trip through the Archives? Perhaps go back and listen to such classics as Woof 21, Woof 64 or the new classic, Woof 199. Or, take advantage of this time to get caught up on the last few shows that you might have missed.
We have big plans for 2008! Coverage from AMVIV, The Dragon, MINI Takes the States and whatever else we can find. Plus, more live shows!
Thanks for stopping by, listening and sharing us with your friends! And thank you for your patience during the holidays with our spotty show schedule. We will be back on track before you know it!
Mini Paul is still looking for comments!
This is a call out to owners and drivers of classic minis and the new BMW minis. In my next podcast Iâ€™m going to talk about the reasons why the public favour both types of car so much.
Either way, be sure to let him know you came from here!
