Cacti Radio was once the home of the unbelievably cool live show known as The Phone Show, which ran from early 2009 until July 2012. You can click on that link to view the complete archives of The Phone Show and listen to its awesomeness – for the first time ever, the TPS archive is COMPLETE and all 3.5 years of episodes are available to listen to. There will never be another episode of The Phone Show, so quit holding on to hope, you dumb n00bs. TPS had an great run and we did some fucking amazing things and now it’s time to move on.
Hold on to those TPS iTunes and RSS subscriptions, though, because bigger and better things will be happening soon and you don’t want to miss out on an opportunity to hear what I consider to be bigger and better before unsubscribing in complete disgust of whatever I come up with. You’ll also want to keep an eye on PLA’s YouTube, because whatever new stuff happens is sure to end up there. I promise to miss the hell out of doing the show, though, and I’ll miss the whole community thing even more. You guys were all awesome!
So what about the shoutcast stream, you ask? I’ve downgraded the stream to a 50 person capacity and it is now broadcasting PLA and TPS stuff on it 24/7. There won’t be live shows on the stream anymore – not even by cool people like Carlito and R0xy, so please don’t ask me for stream access. The stream is now located in the sidebar of phonelosers.org and it’ll be updated often with new and old PLA material. I’ll be throwing the old Prank Show and Fun Show episodes on there too since they were so closely intertwined with the PLA.
I’m trying to convince Carlito from Madhouse Radio to take the Cacti Radio domain from me so he can do cool, live prank call stuff with it. Until this happens, I’ve forwarded cactiradio.com to his site, to further pester him into taking it from me. If you miss listening to live prank call shows, Madhouse Live is still on every Thursday night, KDK Pranks is on Saturday nights and Friday Night Cranks is on every week, but I forget which day, and then there’s the awesomeness of Zolar’s pranks. There’s a ton of great prank shows out there, and I will see you in their chat rooms.
NEXT DAY EDIT: Thanks to NotBrad’s suggestion that I set up a feed solely for episodes of PLA Radio (which I did and it’s here), today I spent HOURS creating RSS archive feeds for all 4 years of The Phone Show so you can easily put them all on your iPod or other RSS reader/device. There are 4 feeds, one for each year. Here are the links: 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012. Paste those into your iTunes and all the TPS episodes will magically appear on your iPhone. Very few of the after shows are in there, so you’ll still have to listen to those manually for now. I’ll get those put in there someday, though.
Here’s yet another post to tell you to watch PLA’s YouTube videos. These two videos might interest you if you’ve been into the PLA for a long time. Since I only have 8 months to live, I’m trying to give away tons of old PLA junk and photos. The first video contains the junk and the 2nd one contains the photos. Unfortunately a lot from the first video has already been taken, but most of the printed pages of stuff is still available.
Also on PLA’s YouTube are 3 more episodes of Sorry I Dinged Your Car and a Geek Squad prank, which are all embedded below. Apparently Geek Squad employees have been alerted to the video where we impersonate them because over 200 hits are coming from geeksquadcentral.com, which appears to be for employees only. If any viewers have access to those forums, please send us some screen shots so we can find out whether they’re LOLing or plotting their revenge.
Wal-Mart doesn’t seem too happy with our photo pranks, according to the memo below. This was spotted by a Wal-Mart employee who follows us on Facebook and was nice enough to snap a picture for us. The memo has done little good, though, because photo employees still give us anything that we ask for.
Attached to this post is the latest episode of The Phone Show, where you’ll find out what the word is if you listen long enough. You can click here to read the show notes. Don’t forget to listen to us live, every Tuesday night at 9pm Pacific / 12am Eastern.
Every once in awhile, I post a Phone Show episode to the PLA feed, just to remind you people who dearly miss PLA Radio why I hate baby Jesus.
But my secret ulterior motive for posting this today is to tell everyone that Rappy McRapperson is having his album release party on Cacti Radio this Saturday! At 7:00pm Pacific / 10:00pm Eastern, Rappy will join RBCP for a 2 hour live interview as we play his new album, Live at the Amway Arena. We’ll be talking about Rappy’s new album, taking your phone calls, and maybe even making some prank calls. You can preorder an autographed physical CD at rappymcrapperson.com or you can just steal the album from the internet when it comes out on Saturday.
Rappy McRapperson is having an album release party this Saturday, December 17th at 7:00pm on Cacti Radio. The new album is called Live at the Amway Arena and you can preorder CDs or digital albums at rappymcrapperson.com.
Have you joined PLA’s Facebook yet? Because you’re a stupid dumb newb if you haven’t. Sure we post updates on this website and on our Twitter, but most of the hardcore PLA action happens on the PLA Facebook. I just made the title of this update RED and BLINKING so this is obviously an important issue. GO JOIN THE PLA FACEBOOK!
Are you going to Defcon with us? In just one month, the biggest PLA meetup in the history of the world (since our Jonbenet murder meetup) will be happening in Las Vegas and will include amazing people like RBCP, RogueClown, el_jefe, Jammie, Chris Ellerbeck’s mom, io, Laugh Track Matt, Rappy McRapperson and a lot of other people who are only of moderate importance so I won’t mention them because they’re newbs and don’t really matter.
Defcon 19 will be at the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas, from August 4th to August 7th. Admission is an outrageous $150 per person, so bring lots of badge counterfeiting supplies with you. A few of us aren’t even buying admission into Defcon since there will still be plenty to do on the outskirts of Defcon. And if you buy some of us enough beer, we might even loan our Defcon badge to you so you can get in for a bit. So don’t let the entrance fee deter you! Come to Defcon! Visit defcon.org for official Defcon information and visit PLA’s Defcon planning thread on the PLA forums to make plans with us.
Okay, shit’s getting real now because I’m using the scroll tag AND the blink tag, so you know this part is important. Here it goes…PLA has their own Minecraft server now! That’s right, back in the day we were doing crazy illegal things with telephones and having epic adventures on the streets of Corpus Christi, but in 2011 we’re reduced to nothing but a bunch of nerds who play Minecraft all day. Awesome, right?? You can learn more about our Minecraft world by visiting this thread in the PLA forums or just point your Minecraft client to 18.104.22.168:26026
Did you notice that The Phone Show didn’t happen last week? I mean, it sort of happened but it wasn’t done by ME so the dumb stuff that Aikison did in my absence is totally insignificant. There won’t be a Phone Show this week either. And maybe even none the following week. I might be able to squeeze one in before I leave for Defcon, but don’t expect a lot of Phone Show antics until after Defcon.
The good news is that there are at least 2 other shows that you can listen to on Cacti Radio during the week during my absence. Rob The Hyena does The Prank Show every Saturday night at 9pm Pacific and Staci Stack is still doing her Fun Show on Wednesday nights at 8pm Pacific. There are other shows that happen too, like Aikison and Badfish’s live show on Fridays at 9pm Pacific and Carlito’s Madhouse on Thursdays at 7pm Pacific which he hasn’t done in MONTHS NOW so I don’t know why I’m even posting it.
What do you think of the new design on phonelosers.org? Doesn’t the pea green background just make you want to throw up? And that pay phone menu over on the side? Have you ever even seen it? I never have because it takes 3 years to load, and I designed it! I bet it’s cool though. If you dial the standard Bell secret code into the keypad, a bunch of money is transferred to your PayPal. Try it! Let me know what you think about the design in the comments. Critique your hearts out and let me know how it could improve. And, oh yeah, GO JOIN THE PLA FACEBOOK!
Back in early 2009, Party 934 gave me a slot on their radio station, which became The Phone Show. Almost immediately, a group of guys known as “pbx411″ started calling into the show only to scream their URL at us and hang up. It turned out that they completely hated me and linear, for reasons unknown, and made it their life’s mission to ruin The Phone Show. They set up a bunch of fake Craigslist ads with the show’s phone number, which gave us fun content for the show and has become a tradition for us since then, and they constantly called in to tell us their URL. They claimed complete victory in their war against the PLA when they found RogueClown’s phone number and sent a pizza to her house. Just slightly over a month later, their campaign of terror was over, and linear and I were able to sleep peacefully again.
Of course, I can’t complain too much about a group of guys who call up a show and yell a single phrase at the host. Our phone mobs against AM radio stations were mostly people calling in and working the word “cactus” into some form of weird joke that only PLA people would understand. If anything, I deserve to be harassed on my own show, but they should at least have put a little more effort into it than simply yelling their URL and hanging up. People wouldn’t still be listening to our old What’s Your Bid prank every day if all we did was call them up and yell, “PHONELOSERS DOT ORG!#!@##!@” at them.
So pbx411 disappeared for a couple of years as their domain name expired and disappeared as well. But then, just a month ago, they came back! This time they had a new domain name, called phonewinners.com (get it? because they’re not losers like us!), and a renewed irrational hatred for all things PLA. The campaign of phone calls started up once again, only this time they were yelling “PHONEWINNERS DOT COM!!!” at us instead of “PBX411 DOT INFO!!!”. They did the same to OhEmGee’s Fun Show and they began spamming the Fruit Wall on phonelosers.org with their URL nonstop. They seemed completely desperate to make their URL known, something that most people accomplish by simply asking me to post their link on the page for them.
So why do the Phone Winners hate me so much? This is best part – apparently it’s because I deleted a post of Harry’s (he’s the head Phone Winner) on the PLA forums years ago. That’s it. I deleted a post. I haven’t been told which post I deleted and I don’t even know if it was me that deleted it or one of the other mods there. The only thing I’m certain of is that a deleted post from more than 2 years ago isn’t worth this much time and energy. If you’re still seething with hatred after 2 years just because some post was deleted, then you have some issues. But if you’re dedicating a large portion of your day to harassing the guy who runs these forums, then…I dunno. That’s just weird. Pretty much every time we’ve called into their voice bridge, they 2 guys on it are ranting about what a horrible person I am. For deleting a post.
Stuff like this happens to me all the time, of course. Harry and the Phone Winners are just the latest in the harassment that’s taken place against me during the past 15 years of doing PLA. There’s always some guy that makes it his life’s mission to bring me down forever, usually for no reason at all and usually someone who thinks he’s completely anonymous and that I can never do anything about it. This thing with Harry mostly reminds me of the StLSD2000 incident from about 10 years ago, where a guy named StLSD2000 decided that I was the most evil person in the world because I banned the use of numbers on the PLA Forums in an attempt to stomp out the problem with people posting credit card and calling card numbers there. StLSD2000 began calling me at home and charging items to my phone bill, certain that he would bankrupt me and that my life would be over. When I promised him that I would post the calling cards he sent me on phonelosers.org, he was really surprised to find out that not only did I figure out who he was, but that I posted all of his personal information on phonelosers.org along with the calling cards. I don’t think I ever heard from him after that.
The best course of action for people like this has always been to just completely ignore them. They quickly get bored and go away, usually forever, but some of them keep at it until I figure out who they are. Like z09, a person that a lot of you probably remember from the PLA Forums, who began stealing my account info from local businesses like Blockbuster and sending me pizzas and mailing spoiled food to my PO box. He disappeared forever after I tracked him down and changed his forum avatar into his boy scout photo. Or Compudroid, who hacked my site and was tricking everyone into dialing his ANI trap until I gave all of those people his home phone number, or Brice Carlson who dared the PLA to harass him and then began calling the police on me when I complied, or Jason H after he tried to get my sites taken down. And, of course, there’s that little incident where Richard Cardo tried to frame me for a high-profile murder case.
Lately the Phone Winners have graduated from harassing me online to posting the personal information of PLA people on their site, threatening to assault me at Defcon this summer, calling my hosting company to social engineer MySQL info from them, and attempting to run up the bandwidth limit on my Cacti Radio host so that I’m charged an extra $10 per month, an expense that I just don’t see how I’m going to be able to ever afford. Don’t worry, they haven’t even come close to reaching my limit yet, but they are still trying their best and I’m extremely worried about this. The funny thing is, Harry doesn’t seem to know much about proxies, because while the logs on my website showed that he was using a free proxy service called sslbrowser.com to access my web site, they still displayed his real Comcast IP address in New Jersey.
So yesterday I called Comcast and asked, “Hey, Comcast, who does this IP address belong to?” and they’re like, “LOL, it belongs to some girl named Deborah Garretson in Jersey City.” And I said, “Oh? Well what’s Deborah’s phone number?” and Comcast says, “It looks like the same Google Voice number that Harry used when he registered voipwin.com.” This was exactly the moment that I began spending a large chunk of my work day researching Harry’s home. I was able to find out that Harry’s real name is Joseph W Princiotta Jr and that although Harry loves bragging about making $3,000 IN CASH for making a single service call, he still can’t seem to scrounge up enough money to move out of his mother’s house. Yep, Harry is 44-years-old and still lives with his mom, Loretta. Hasn’t moved out yet. That’s gotta be hell on his dating life.
And it turns out that Harry is a huge internet celebrity too, featured on FARK.com for nearly blowing his hand off and sending some other guy to the hospital. So Harry is 44, still lives with his mom, enjoys civil war reenactment shows, and is dumb enough to set fire to tubes of gun powder in his hand. And, oh yeah, he doesn’t know how to use a proxy.
So now I just feel kind of bad for Joe and that’s why I’m giving him the attention that he’s been so desperate for all these years. Visit his website at phonewinners.com, where he’s put a ton of effort into bashing the PLA because he hates us, yet he’s been stealing all of our pranks and reposting them on his site. Don’t write anything hateful in the comments section, though, because even though Harry will flip out and harass you for 2 years when you delete a forum post of his, he will still delete your comments if they hurt his feelings.
Call up Harry’s voice bridge at 212-389-1318 and talk to him and his life partner, Joseph Moskalshi in Easton, Pennsylvania, who pays for the web site and helps Harry call into the show and scream their URL at us every Tuesday and Wednesday night. Once you tire of listening to The Joes complain about me all day, you should hang up and join the 21st century by hanging out with PLA on Tinychat or Skype.
Harry, please accept my apologies for deleting whatever forum post of yours that I deleted 2 years ago and please don’t throw a bag of piss on me at Defcon for that heinous crime. If you want to join the forums and post it again, I’ll let you. I sincerely hope that you appreciate that I’ve finally posted your URL on phonelosers.org and that you’ll stop trying to run up my bandwidth bill at PRQ, because if you manage to succeed, they’re going to charge me an extra $10 and that will totally ruin my life forever. I make very little profit from selling PLA dog tags and I honestly don’t think I can sell enough dog tags to cover the expense that your hacking may end up costing me. Please stop refreshing my page. Please! Oh, and test out free proxy services before you use them.
NEXT MORNING UPDATE: Last night we had fun talking about all of this on the air as Rob listened on their bridge. As expected, Harry completely denies that he is Joseph Princiotta, playing it cool like I’m a huge retard and found the wrong person. We called his bridge and tried to talk to him on the air, but he was strangely quiet during that. (Maybe he had to go tend to a $3,000 service call.) Pretend that you’re not Joseph W Princiotta Jr. all you want, Harry, but we know you are. Your years of hiding your identity are officially over now. Think of this as a favor from us. You’ve always had to work so hard at being paranoid and keeping yourself hidden. Now you’re free to just be yourself and not have to worry about ridiculous stuff like that. Welcome to 2011, where we all have Facebooks and know each others real names! I will definitely be your friend when you get yours set up, Joe. :)
SLIGHTLY LATER IN THE MORNING UPDATE: Oh, this is weird…the phonewinners.com whois info suddenly changed since last night’s Phone Show where we exposed Harry as Joseph Princiotta. Used to the whois info clearly stated that the domain was owned by Harry Mann with a fake PO box in Texas and a Google Voice number, which is the same Google Voice number on Harry’s cable TV account. But now all of the whois info is suddenly blocked. (Click on those underlined words to see.) He must have dropped a little of that $3,000 in cash of his to privatize his domain info.
It’s strange that Harry would suddenly be scrambling to change all of his whois info so early this morning when he vehemently denies that he is Joseph Princiotta from Jersey City, New Jersey. If I’m wrong about his information as he claims I am, then why all the sudden changes in whois info? It’s funny, last night during the aftershow I was commenting about how it’s too bad that I don’t have any actual proof that Harry is Joseph Princiotta. All people have to go on is trusting me in my confidence that I have the right person. It’s pretty much my word against Harry’s. I say he’s 44-years-old and still lives with his mother and likes to set himself on fire, while he says he’s a cool guy, living the high life and doing PBX consulting jobs that net him $3,000 in cash per night. But this is almost as good as actual proof, having Harry freak out and change all of his whois info. Thanks, Harry!
Oh, I should also mention that strangely enough, my cactiradio.com domain is suddenly not being refreshed nonstop today by Harry. Funny that should stop all of a sudden. Guess he’s got his hands full with changing whois info everywhere so he doesn’t have time to refresh my page all day.
THE NEXT EVENING UPDATE: It’s been more than 24 hours now since last night’s Phone Show where I dropped Harry’s info and even though Harry swears that I’m wrong about his real identity, he hasn’t made a post on phonewinners.com to laugh at me for finding the wrong guy. You’d think he would want to point out how dumb I am for finding the wrong person, since he’s clearly not this Joseph Princiotta character. But nope, not a word on their site about how wrong I am.
Today we happened across Joe Moskalshi’s Myspace page and found some interesting photos on there. There’s a civil war group photo and there’s a civil war blow job picture and a picture of Joe Moskalshi wearing a Victorian suit for Christmas caroling. It sure is crazy that even though I got the wrong person and Harry isn’t Joseph Princiotta, his web site just happens to be hosted by a guy who really seems to be into Civil War reenactments. What are the odds of that?
THE NEXT WEEK (6/6/2011) UPDATE: Man, Joseph Princiotta and Joseph Moskalshi are really on the run now! They are deleting their accounts everywhere since PLA exposed their real identities, yet we’re still to believe that Harry isn’t really Joseph Princiotta. Down in the comments here, you’ll see that Dely notified us that Harry deleted his YouTube account last week, which is kind of weird. Why would he delete the YouTube he used to spew racism at everyone while promoting his phone bridge? (Click here for a screen cap of his YouTube.) Is there something we don’t know? Cause I sure can’t figure out a reason for him to delete his YouTube, other than him not wanting his real name associated with that YouTube. But why? If anyone knows the answers, post them in the comments here, or contact me directly.
We’ll never again get to see Harry’s gripping videos, like the one titled, “Pedophile Michael Jackson Left a Witness – Breaking Story!” where the description says, “Join the Michael Jackson Partyline! (212) 389-1318 It’s free, just a standard long-distance call.” (Haha, “long-distance” like this is still the early 2000′s.) A Google search for their phone number finds all kinds of fun stuff like this. (And so does a search for GibbedHGR.) Harry used to troll Yahoo Answers to promote his bridge number too. Check out this one where he tried to get 15-year-old girls to call their bridge. Wonder how that worked out for him. Sad that his hard work went to waste, now that he’s locking the bridge. MrX tells us that their bridge is often locked now. Why would they lock their bridge? Wouldn’t that defeat the whole purpose of a bridge? They may as well just be calling each other on the phone to chat all night, like teenage girls do.
Joe Moskalshi’s Myspace page has been deleted. Surely he deleted that because nobody uses Myspace anymore and it was pointless to even have it. It wasn’t because he didn’t like people seeing the awesome pictures of him. At least we helped Moskalshi earn a Myspace badge before he killed his account. His pictures received so much attention because of PLA that Myspace awarded him the “In The Spotlight” badge. Check it out.
Other than all the account deletions and the whois domain info changing, things have been really quiet on the Phone Winners front. There haven’t been any new posts on their website, when before they were making new posts every few days. In fact, a few posts have even been deleted. Their forums haven’t had a single post on them in over a week now and their Facebook page is dead. Come on, Phone Winners, I finally give you all this attention that you’ve been begging me for for years now and then you just clam up and ignore me.
At the request of Chris Ellerback, after a 3 year hiatus, the Big Beef Bueno podcast is back! You may remember BBB coming out around the same time that PLA Radio originally did, but then I lost interest in it…UNTIL NOW! The latest episode celebrates the awesomeness that is Rappy McRapperson by interviewing him and playing a few of his songs. If you’re a regular listener of The Phone Show, you’ll know that Rappy is something I force on my listeners often. Click here to listen to the Rappy interview, where you’ll hear an unreleased song from him (it ends with the word Cactus) and he tells us how it was partially inspired by the PLA.
Why haven’t you reviewed the PLA book yet? Get on Amazon or B&N right now and review the hell out of the PLA book. Jerk.
After months of false promises, r0xy is finally going to start up her own show on Cacti Radio! It’ll be a weekly show, though details are still sketchy right now. If you’ve been listening to Cacti Radio this past weekend, then you’ve probably heard her broadcasting for most of it, playing worse music than I do and prank calls mostly by her and Tombstone. Keep an eye on Cacti Radio for details. And speaking of r0xy – HAPPY BIRTHDAY, R0XY! I’m too cheap to give r0xy gifts, so instead I’ll just post RTF’s gift to her:
Today I was paging through the RSS feeds of the many blogs I read, when I came across this post by Retro Thing called The Death of the Telephone. It made a good point about something that we don’t really think about too much any more, which is how God-awful phone call quality is today compared to 15 – 20 years ago.
Retro Thing says, “Call quality peaked in the mid 1990s. Many ordinary folk still relied on landlines, and computer-based calling services like Skype were a decade away from widespread acceptance. We grumbled about the lack of competion and high prices, but at least we could make decent calls using our telco’s recently upgraded digital switching systems…..Latency, compression artifacts and dropped calls were once relatively rare. Now, it’s commonplace for me use Google Voice while the person on the other end struggles to understand me on their Skype-equipped iPod.”
Remember those commercials in the 80′s by Sprint where they claimed to have phone connections so good that you could hear a pin drop? I’d like to see Verizon Wireless or T-Mobile try that today. We’ve all ditched our land lines for cells at the cost of quality audio. I’m not saying I’d want to go back to the days of having my phone number tethered to my house and having to worry about getting AIDS when putting a pay phone up to my ear, but I kind of wonder how long it’ll be until cell phone quality catches up to what land line quality was 20 years ago.
PLA MOVIE NIGHT!
With my “when I was your age!” rant out of the way, I should mention that Mondays are now PLA Movie Night. Last week R0xy and Tombstone got us all together on tinychat.com to watch Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. It was a bonding experience and, as expected, a circle jerk followed. We’re still not sure what the movie will be tonight, but chances are it’ll be geeky and you might even like it. It starts at the same time as The Phone Show does on Tuesdays – 9:00 pm PST, 12:00 am EST. Keep an eye on PLA’s Twitter and/or Facebook tonight for the URL to watch with us.
THE PHONE SHOW!
Speaking of The Phone Show, it’s on tomorrow night and rumors have it that Evilgold and Eviegold will be stopping by the studio to cohost again. You might remember them as the ambassadors of Free Geek that were on the show earlier this year.
THE PLA BOOK!
Guess what will be arriving in the mailboxes of all the people who preordered the PLA book before the end of this month? Yep, the PLA book will be available around December 1st and the people who preordered at the discounted price should hopefully have their copies by then. There are still a few more days to preorder the PLA book before I up the price a few bucks. BE EXCITED ABOUT THE BOOK!
YOUTUBE VIDEOS BY PLA PEOPLE!
R0xy has got a bunch of us PLA people vlogging on YouTube like it’s 2005 recently and you should join in or at least leave mean comments on our videos. This thread on the PLA Forums has some links to the videos from people like Laugh Track Matt, Tombstone, me and others. It’ll give you something to watch tonight as you wait for PLA Movie Night to start.
It’s been awhile since I’ve posted an update about The Phone Show, so here it goes. There’s a show. It’s called The Phone Show. It’s on Cacti Radio once a week, each Tuesday, at 9pm PST. RBCP hosts along with whoever he can sucker into coming on the show with him, which most frequently includes Spessa and Linear.
Recently there have been a lot of in-studio guests, including old-school PLA’ersJammie and kcochran (and you too, Chad, I GUESS) where we talked about some PLA history, such as the birth of #rock, Spee’s lawsuit and death, the Fred Meyer pranks that kcochran just happened to hear while inside a Fred Meyer, Jim Bayless and more. The show ends with an on-air suicide. It’s a good show to listen to if you’re into all that PLA stuff. Here is a link to it.
Cacti Radio has recently been taken over by Carlito from Madhouse Live, which may or may not be a permanent situation. But the Phone Show still runs on Cacti Radio each Tuesday at 9pm PST, so start listening to us and calling in each week! Please?
UPDATE: Oh yeah…I guess I should have mentioned that the very week I make this update about The Phone Show, I’m taking a 3 week hiatus from the show because I’ll be out of town, jetting all over the planet. We’ll be back sometime in August. I was way too lazy to Tweet about my absence before last night’s show, so people were tuning in and wondering why they were hearing Madhouse Radio. Sorry, everyone!
And Trevelyn from WeakNet Labs has started up a new show called Taming The Electron, where he plays music and talks about coding every Sunday at 4pm PST. You can view this weeks show at the Taming The Electron page, which is at weaknetlabs.com/tamingtheelectron.
linear is also premiering a new show this week, which will air immediately after The Phone Show on Tuesday, at 10pm PST. Be sure to listen for that. And don’t forget to listen to The Phone Show tomorrow night! Between Carlito, The Phone Show and linear’s new show, it’s going to be an action-packed 5 hours.
There’s now a website for our 24-hour streaming station at www.cactiradio.com. You can visit it any time of day and listen to music, prank calls and reruns of PLA Radio and The Phone Show. Both Spessa and murd0c plan to do their own live shows soon. You can also request songs/pranks on the station and the automated system will play them for you. Go listen now! And click here to become a fan of Cacti Radio on Facebook.
And speaking of The Phone Show, it’s on tonight at 9:00pm Pacific. Listen to it on Cacti Radio.
And one last thing…Mr. Anderson has announced a phone mob for Wednesday at 9:00am Central Time. If you can drag yourself out of bed that early, tune into Cacti Radio or watch the PLA Twitter for instructions.
