Cuban BlogTalkRadio Explosion

Cuban BlogTalkRadio Explosion

Virtually overnight there has been an explosion of Cuban BlogTalkRadio shows and there is sure to be more just around the corner. If we are lucky every hour of the day and night there will be at least one Cuban talking about Cuba and reminding the world of the Cuban people’s fate. Jose Reyes is the catalyst that got this ball rolling when he learned of this system and asked me to put together a show. I got off to a tough start learning the system. I did not realize I had callers waiting, accidentally cut callers off and finally for good measure I cut myself off! Fair is fair I suppose. But fortunately two of my callers, Ziva from Blog ForCuba and my cousin Emiliano from Strike The Root saved me by carrying on as if this was the schedule.


So here is what is coming up this week:

Tonight - December 13th!!!!

El Café Cubano premiers at 10:00 pm with host Alfredo live from Texas. Usually I’d miss a show scheduled at this time but my wife gave me her stomach flu and I’m home ailing. So if I can get out of the banyo I’ll give Alfredo a call. You could do the same by dialing (646) 915-9805. Help avoid dead air time and at the same time get some things off your chest. Alfredo wants to feel your pain Cubanos. Just go here and listen:

Tomorrow Night – December 14th and December 16th! At 10:00 pm both nights - Abajo Fidel/Free Cuba premiers with host Enrique. Enrique is a bit of a loveable rogue so this ought to be a fun show. And ladies…Enrique is a single guy in his prime so give him a call! To reach Enrique’s show dial (646) 915-9840. To learn more go to his Host Page here:

Sunday night December 17th at 10:00 pm me again, Tomás Estrada-Palma with Cuba Exposed! Give me a call at (646) 915-9664. I look forward to your calls because I get a rush talking to Cubans. Maybe it’s genetic? Please come for a visit here:

Monday Night – December 18th! At 9:00 pm tune into Cuba Libre with host QBANOLIBRE. I dialed in on their premier broadcast at (646) 915-9805 and thought the show very well done. Listen and call in to the show on Monday and you can see what I mean. Just go here:

In addition, Jose Reyes and I will have a show premiering in the near future called Mundo Libre. Check at Cubanology.com for details.

Finally to callers, once you are into the show just listen on your phone and kill the media player or you will hear the show echoing twice in your ear. For host, please look at my Host Notes and see what you can do to put links there (like put your blog links) that your listeners can go to while hearing your broadcast. Remember, you can always prerecord something as well then play it during your show. Listen to my show Sunday night to get a idea of the possibilities.


SO! Break a leg Cubanos!

Live Interactive Internet/Phone/TextChat discussions & Podcasts - If you like BlogTalkRadio, you'll love this!

BlogTalkRadio only allows 5 callers and works one-caller-at-a time. If you like that, you should check out www.TalkShoe.com where you can have unlimited simultaneous callers (think open conference call) and you have Host control of the audio bridge (talkers) and the text chat (typers) – meaning you can mute/un-mute in each voice/text domain. And we record it and wrap it up for Podcasting, and post it to iTunes and other podcast listing sites – just hit the “Record” button!

It is Live, Interactive discussion (topic-based) and Podcasting to better connect with your audience.

Brian (the TalkShoe team)

+1 (724) 935-talk

ps. FYI, we also pay people to Host Talkcasts (since August). Cheers... hope you check us out and have fun with it!
