Will try to listen in tomorrow....it's my grandson's 7th birthday tomorrow and not sure how the day will end up. I have mentioned to him that we could spend time on the computer listening to real golfers......he hasn't quite bought into it so far. We'll see. If he is more into cake...gun toys....Lego's...and such....I might be playing those. But I might develop a headache at the right time which requires solitary confinement near my computer.

Almost like watching a football game during a wedding.....never done that ;) RR

Will the show be able to be heard after it is over? I am unable to listen live, but I would like to go back and hear the show at a later time.

Thanks.

Hi Impact Bag,...yes the show will be available to listen to afterwards. After each episode we will post a link to the show in this thread so all the episodes can be listened to again in whatever order you wish. If this first one is a success I will also set up an itunes feed so those with iTunes can have the shows automatically download whenever we do a new one (and even put them on your iPod to listen to in the car or wherever suits you).

Look forward to hearing people's feedback.....

I'm listening to this now... just a note in case Lag or anyone reads this while it's still on air. Everytime a caller can't be heard (most of the time) I then get an advert and I'm disconnected and so I have to call back, at which point it always seems like I've missed something as the discussion seems to have moved on. I think the host is doing something that disconnects all calls. Interesting discussion, however..

Hi Teddy and thanks for the feedback. I am trying to work out what I was doing wrong. Apologies for those who had this happen and hopefully by next show I will have it sorted out. The podcast will be available within the next hour or so and there will be a link to it in the first post of this thread for those who wanted to have a listen. Thanks again to Lag for being willing to try this experiment and Al for taking the time to be on the show.
