    Great stuff Alan! Great to see these features available. I did use the click to host feature on a podcast a couple of weeks ago and didn’t have a good experience. VOIP calls are definitely not reliable just in general.

    Alan,

    I am working hard uniting the conservative thought, voice and image across this nation. Currently we have premium plus on our http://www.blogtalkradio.com/grizzlygroundswell account that is now every day 7-8PM CST

    I love the service and I am still trying to utilize its capabilities.

    I have two other accounts that I am thinking of purchasing the premium plus for as well.

    8-9PM CST http://www.blogtalkradio.com/GrizzlyPolitic

    We have over 28 great hosts now on our radio shows and bring Blog Talk Radio Listeners great 3 shows and three hours of great content.

    Randy,

    The Click to Host feature is quite dependent upon the quality of the internet connection on the host side. I am glad you like the other features we have made available.
