The good news: I've recorded the next episode of Box Center.
The bad news: It's still sitting on my hard drive.
I'm at work today so I'm away from my home computer until after 7:30 PM EST tonight. I'll make a note to post the show once I get home.

I always enjoy the snare soloists at I&E because they put a lot of flash into their performances. This particular perfrormance is no exception.

Box Center will be returning soon. I was hoping to post a new show on Monday (11/7/05) but I'm still getting settled into the new place, plus I have to do laundry somewhere else since our washer/dryer combo hasn't been delivered yet. Add to that no free weekends for the next month and life gets pretty hectic.
My next plan is to attempt to post the 1966 tribute show on Friday (11/11/05), then post a "normal" show next Wednesday (11/16/05). After that, hopefully, it's back to a regular schedule. Whatever that is.
I appreciate that people are still interested in the show and I have every intention of fufilling the desire for more shows.

My wife and I are preparing to move at this time. We're almost completely surrounded by boxes, empty bookcases, and two cats who are totally traumatized by all the packing we're doing. I haven't really had a chance to do a show for this week yet and, to tell you the truth, I'm not sure I will have a chance until after I unpack and set up the computer in the new digs.
On top of that, I've had problems with my computer, ranging from Outlook shutting down as soon as I start it up (no error message, either) to Norton Anti-Virus getting corrupted and not giving me the virus protection goodness my computer needs. As a result, I decided to reformat my hard drive. I'm back up and running but need to re-load Audacity in order to put a show together.
I will attempt to do a show on Wednesday or Thursday but I don't see much time on either day when I could do it. Worst case has me breaking out the voice recorder on my Palm Tungsten T3 and recording the show while at work, then transferring the show to my computer, slapping on the intro/closing music, and throwing it up on the blog. We will see what happens.
Extreme worst case: No show until the 1966 Tribute on November 7.

Yes, that's right. That's why you're not getting a show tonight. I've worked a 12 hour shift today, the Indians and the White Sox are facing off for what may be the deciding series for the AL Central division, and I'd like to spend a little time with my wife tonight.
Tomorrow will likely be the same as I work another 12 hour shift. Assume the show will be released on Wednesday. To tide you over, here are the show notes for this week's episode so you have an idea of what to look forward to...
Raiders, 2005 DCI Division III Champions
Episode 3 of Box Center
In this week's edition:
Box Center is a weekly podcast, released each Monday, dedicated to the news and events of the drum and bugle corps activity. Box Center is hosted by Kevin Gamin, Assistant Editor of Drum Corps Planet News.

KYOU, an AM radio station in San Francisco, currently broadcast podcasts. Only podcasts. 24 hours worth of podcasts. Talk about cutting down on production costs.
Now, here's the big deal: I've submitted Box Center to KYOU radio and will do so each week. The chances of them putting the show on the air, however, depends on if THEY think people will listen.
By chance, there are THREE major drum corps in the San Francisco area...
If you're a drum corps fan, especially a San Fran drum corps fan, go to KYOU.com. If you don't see Box Center on the program grid, contact the station and let them know YOU want to hear the show on the station.
If we pull this off, this will be the only drum corps focused show on broadcast radio and the first since Matt Mingle's Drum Corps Radio, last broadcast in 2003.

Shortly after the Apple e-mail I received, I got this message from my host, Liberated Syndication:

I got this from Apple today which at least partially explains why Box Center isn't showing up in the iTunes podcast directory:
