The Phone Show – 2009 Archive

The Phone Show
Below are The Phone Show archives for 2009. If you’d like to download all the shows at once, you should download the latest PLA Media Pack, which is a torrent containing everything the PLA has ever released. If you’d like to put all of the 2009 episodes on your iPhone or other mp3 player, the 2009 RSS feed can do that.

03-16-2009: This is the first show which is nothing but music and Brad begging people to call in. Nobody calls in until the very end, which is obviously a setup. Online listeners varied between 0 and 2 that night and the show lasted 60 minutes.

03-23-2009: This is the first official show and it had around 13 online listeners until almost the end. Listen to Jenn call in, which is when we discover that I’m having Skype issues. A few other people call in throughout the show, including 2 deaf relay operators. Altalp calls in and calls some motels where we wake up one guest. This show lasted about 90 minutes.

03-30-2009: linear co-hosts this hour-long show and we average about 15 online listeners throughout the hour. Someone suggested I write out show notes and list the songs that I play, so here it goes…
