i will be staying up to listen to the birthday broadcast - i stay up till 2AM - 3AM anyway
in fact it's 3am the now.
Wow, I'd be tired.. It's only 9:30pm here..

We don't get to exactly talk to Doris. We just call in and give her our birthday wishes, so we don't get to talk directly to her. But she does hear us. And I'm not cool and confident. I was sooo nervous last year. I even wrote out what I was going to say ahead of time so I wouldn't screw anything up. But, it was still the greatest day of my life!

You should really call this year. I did, an even though you feel terrified it's great once you know you've done it.
It's so much fun to listen to everybody too! As Megan said, if you write it out first your good to go.

I don't think they'll have a problem with your accent Samantha. People called from all over last year.

Are you calling in Dominique?

We're all so good at going off-topic - where's the moderator? :wink:
Too involved in the off topic... ;)

Why don't we have an all-day/night chat that day?

Yes, we should, Marion - could you set up the topic? "Magic63's Live Broadcast on Doris' Birthday" or something. Make a link to the program at the top and lock this one in case people get confused - 9am there should be late afternoon in Germany. Perhaps set it up a few hours earlier.

Oh, I'm so anxious about the broadcast too, and want to call it up! Does anybody know what is the phone number of the radio? I'll try to make the call through my Skipe, because I'm from Brazil and never made a foreign call my life... :mrgreen:

Does anybody know how exactly the internet streaming is going to work?

I remember last year I had to download a little programme, but I can't find any information yet on the station's website?

They didn't post the link until the day of last year. So, I'd say we'll have to wait until tomorrow to find out for sure.

Dani, I'm not sure what the phone number is. Does anyone else remember?

Tommorrow I'll be gone all day. Will I be able to listen to it after the fact? And if I can will it be all the music or just people calling in?

Mike, as said above it will probably be explained on the magic63-website tomorrow.

sunnyDay, last year a few days later the whole broadcast was put up on the station's website, 9 hours. :-)

Megan - You did absolutely great last year. If you were nervous, it was not the least bit apparent. I, on the other hand, sounded like Gomer Pyle.

At any rate, I'm SO looking forward to tomorrow...I'm taking the entire day off, and it will be Doris Day day at my house! Also, looking forward to hearing many of you all on the broadcast. This is just so great that the radio station is giving us this gift. We all need to thank them profusely.

We should probably set it up early and try and provide some instructions - I'll be around in the morning to help.

I'm getting all excited - although I will be out for some of it - I'll set my recorder and hopes it lasts that long.

Thanks for the kind comment. I thought you did really well too! Will you be calling in this year too?

Okay, I'll close this topic now and will open up 2 new ones:

One on how to listen and where you can post questions, in case you have problems

and one for an real-time online discussion of the broadcast.

Magic 63 Radio Broadcast, 03.04.09 - How to listen

Posted: 03 Apr 2009, 03:28

Magic 63 is thankfully enough streaming their all day radio broadcast in the honour of Doris Day again worldwide via the Internet.

Appearently they have changed procedures and it is not necessary to download a specific software anymore.

On http://www.magic63.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; (with a new beautiful dorissy intro page) they give the following link to click on:

http://asx.abacast.com/magic63-magic63-32.asx" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Clicking on this leads at least me automatically to my Windows Media Player, though naturally at this time I cannot here a thing.

I haven't found information on the broadcasting hours yet (can't even remain on the normal Magic63-pages if I don't use the stop-button), but I assume it will be from

9:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m Carmel time like last year.

This would be 6:00 p.m. - 3:00 a.m. German time.

If anybody has other information please let us know.

Also it would be great if anybody, who hears any broadcasting under above link could shortly post it here, so that everybody can check if it works for them as well. Last year I think they started the broadcast a little earlier than 09:00 a.m. if I remember correctly?

Enjoy!

Toni, what kind of error message?

I get directly to the Media Player, but is just doesn't start. No error mesage.

I assume they didn't start streaming yet.

I go directly to windows media player and it tells me the web address is not correct.

We just called the radio station and they said they don't start until 9am their time - which would
be 11am my time. That may be the issue - but the man we spoke with said they will definitely
check it out and have their IT guy look at it. He's not in yet - but when he arrives they will
check it out. It may be that the program hasn't begun yet. I hope thats it !!

So - I guess I'll hang on for another hour and try it again.
Possibly I'm too anxious -- I want to hear the program ! lol !!
