Do Over and Acorn Woodpecker
July 27, 2012
If there is one thing that broadcasting has taught me, it is that I am not perfect, not even close, and if anything can go wrong it will. This morning was the perfect example. I was to broadcast House Investing with Carlos Royal at 9 AM PDT and I had not only posted it but sent out an email to that effect. I had prepared my material early Donna and I had taken a trip to the mountains and I was ready. In fact, I got up early and tested all the equipment on a test channel and did a short simulated broadcast. As they say, I was showered, shaved and ready to perform. I took the phone off the hook as Donna said she was leaving and wished me good luck. I close the door to my broadcast office and started the count down.
At exactly 9 AM PDT I pushed the broadcast button and the record button and I started talking and I continued for the next 30 minutes. I thought I was on a roll, only to fine out I was broadcasting on the test channel. Austin tried to call me as he was monitoring the broadcast from school but since my phone was off the hook he had no luck. He did text Donna and she returned to home to give me the news. I was shocked to see her open the door and whisper “Your on the wrong channel.”
Frustrated I changed the channel and started the broadcast over but by then most everyone had left, I know I would have, so here is the deal. I am going to try again, a kind of “do over.” The show will start at 10 AM PDT Saturday 7-28-12 . If you want to know what happened I just forgot to reset the channel button after the test broadcast.
So if you couldn’t attend or you missed the broadcast, we both get a second chance with a “Do Over” on Saturday at 10 AM PDT.
Here is a link to the show. House Investing with Carlos Royal. Hope you can join me. I promise to be on the right channel.
Donna and I had a good time at Idyllwild in the mountains as we kicked back and watched an Acorn Woodpecker search for food as I sipped my Cafe´ Mocha Frappuccino and Donna her iced tea. I did have my camera but not with me at the coffee house so I have posted some of my other photos of Acorn Woodpeckers.
