Due to a personnel shake-up at Books And Beyond, we need some people who are willing to patch future guests into the virtual chat room where we record the show. We'd like to have about 4 people who can be put on a schedule to patch the guests in each week. You would call the guests on the phone and then bring them into the chat room so that Bonnie and the other participants can hear them and they can hear us. I'd say it would take about 90 minutes of your time on the night you patched for us. We call the guests about 10 or 15 minutes before the show for a sound check, and then sometimes the show itself goes a bit over time. We generally do the shows each Wednesday evening at 8pm eastern time, 5 pacific time or midnight UTC, although this changes from time to time depending on the needs of the particular guest. You would need to have flat rate unlimited long distance as our guests come from all over the US. You'll always be given the guest's phone number in advance of the show. Sometimes we get lucky and guests are willing to come into the chat room with their own computers, but, most of the time they either can't or aren't willing to do so. If the show is to have flexibility and variety, we can't make this an absolute requirement for the guests. The schedule can be flexible, and we're willing to work around your other commitments. This is why we're looking for several people to work with us. We definitely need someone for this Wednesday evening. We can't pay you, but, if you work well with us, Bonnie will write a reference letter you can be proud to share with any prospective employer. Anyone who is interested can write me off list at freespirit52@xxxxxxxxxxx or call my Philmore box and leave your phone number there. The Philmore number is 773-572-3166. Either Bonnie or I will get back to you ASAP, and thanks to the people who respond to this. We'll really appreciate your help.
