CQ Radio: Libby, Cheney, Visas, And Cut-And-Runs (Bumped)

blog radio

Tonight, CQ Radio will air at its normal time, between 9-10 pm CT, and we'll be talking about Scooter Libby, Dick Cheney, pardons, appeals, and more. We'll also have Charles Hurt from the Washington Examiner on the show to discuss the expansion of the Visa Waiver Program.

You can listen live at the above link, and even join in the conversation by calling 646-652-4889. We may have more to discuss between then and now, and I'll be keeping the agenda wide open in case any breaking stories catch our attention.

Yesterday, Always On! ran an interesting article on Blog Talk Radio, and I'd be remiss if I didn't point it out:

What sets BlogTalkRadio apart from similar services is its clever and easy-to-use implementation without needing any special equipment. The secret is that all audio input is via the telephone. Podcasters get a private dial-in number to the service, then they are streamed out to the Internet. Callers get their own number, while BlogTalkRadio provides a Web-based console the podcaster uses to control the show. Once the show is created, it is hosted on BlogTalkRadio and can be accessed either at the BlogTalkRadio site or a widget on the host's site. ...

Since its launch five months ago, this self-funded company has amassed heavy traction and is preparing to take the next steps toward success. By integrating click-to-call VoIP functions, introducing audio and visual advertising, BlogTalkRadio can offer its diverse content to what CEO Alan Levy describes as a "near limitless market."

The traditional radio model is based on the one-to many paradigm. BlogTalkRadio gives rise to a new broadcast medium: many-to-many. The question now becomes not so much who will use it, but how it will be used.

I'll have more on BTR later. For now, make sure to catch the show live tonight -- and check the home page for more shows on a wide range of topics.
