A NOTE FROM HANK - SEPTEMBER 3, 2016

YOU DID IT! Thanks to you and other members of our audience writing to the management of WBAI-FM and Pacifica, our cancellation has been rescinded. As Margaret Mead said: 'Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.'.
Here's the good news:

The Personal Computer Show can still be heard on WBAI-FM but at 9PM ET Wednesday nights instead of at 8 PM. Same show, same station, new time.

Even better good news: the Personal Computer Show can now be heard on the Internet at prn.fm live on Wednesdays at 6 PM ET. You can listen to the stream and join us on the air at PRN.fm to ask questions, share opinions, make comments by calling the toll free number 888-874-4888 (while we are on the air from 6 PM-7 PM ET). You can also listen by telephone by dialing 1-712-775-6850. You can listen to us live no matter where in the world you are sitting (almost).

The Personal Computer Show is now broadcast twice a week. These will be different shows, we are not broadcasting the same show twice a week. You can download an MP3 recording of each show at OUR AUDIO ARCHIVES page. Or, you can subscribe to our podcast using the orange XML link at the bottom of every page on this site.
