The Next Big Thing
If you’ve been following us over at Derry Public Radio, you’ve seen us talk about having a lot in the works. With our first convention of the year, Planet Funk Con, behind us we are turning our focus to the next big things. First, I would like to once again thank everyone at Planet Funk Con for having us. Everyone was so welcoming and fun. Thank you again to Mellow Blue Planet for donating those Dark Tower figures to add to our prize pool, that was very generous and the winners were so happy to have them. On to the new business! We’ve been hard at work in and out of studio preparing for the summer. Kicking things off, as you all know, we are covering the most requested book brought up on our page, “The Stand”. I never could have imagined how hard it would be to stop talking about this book. With our first episode coming out on Sunday, I can safely say this might be one of the longest episodes we’ve ever recorded. There’s so much to talk about and I cannot wait to hear what all of you out there have to add to the conversation! The next major announcement is about our Patreon series “The Club”. We are still a short way away from hitting our goal but in an effort to stay ahead of the game we have begun recording the episodes that will become “The Club”. Without getting too far ahead of ourselves one involves a reading by CM, while another involved some special guests and some dice rolling! Lastly, the thing that has been pulling a lot of our attention has been our acquisition of the “Constant Readers” website. We shared this info a few weeks ago and since the transition of ownership, you may have noticed that not much has changed. We want to make sure every step we take is a step forward in regards to our show and our community of listeners and supporters. Our website is giving us the perfect first step. We are currently combing through the submissions from writers who have sent in stories in hopes to be published on the website. We spend so much time creating content to put out, that being sent content is new territory for us, so we thank you for your patience. This website is going to provide us with a two way street. A place where we get to continue sharing ourselves and our content with you and you can share some of yourself with us and the rest of the citizens of Derry! We will likely stumble out of the gate as we learn how to manage this new portal of entertainment but we’re thankful for all your support as we move forward. Please take some time, if you have not, to swing by the blog at www.constantreaders.org, give us a review on Apple Podcasts or wherever you listen, follow us on social media, and take a look at our Patreon at www.patreon.com/derrypublicradio. Thank you.
