OGA SHOW UPDATE - JOHN HAMES PROVIDES
AN UPDATE OF OLD GUARD AUDIO PODCAST
The background music was written, created and written by a good
friend from Memphis Tennessee, who wanted to contribute to the
podcast with his music. He is a fantastic pianist, at the end of
this episode, I will play the selection in it’s entirety.
No politics today. I wanted to let you know about the outreach of
The show is nearing 14,000 downloads, with several days reaching
the 200+ download mark, and I am grateful to you for that, as I am
Old Guard Audio is reaching people in 68 countries; I won’t bore
you with all those countries, but the top 10, outside the United
Vietnam, 2. Russian Federation, 3. Ireland, 4. Canada, 5. Ghana, 6.
Philippines, 7. France, 8. United Kingdom, 9. Islamic Republic of
Iran, 10 Israel
California holds the top spot for states in US, with the most
listens, the highest areas in California are San Francisco /
Oakland and San Jose. Tennessee is #2, 3rd is
New York and then Washington.
The most listened to episode by far is the Prime Minister Benjamin
Netanyahu’s speech before congress. That is note worthy as that
speech was just a month ago… After that, Governor Walker’s Iowa
Speech, then Ted Cruz’s presidential announcement. Any audio of
Trey Gowdy, especially having to do with the Hillary Benghazigate
has a large audience.
So, I just wanted to thank you for the listenership and your
support. I hope to be able to keep the show going at least until
the 2016 presidential election is over. However the cost of
broadcasting on the web is way more than the show is generating in
How can you help support Old Guard Audio?
By telling your friends how to subscribe to the show, on their
phone, PC, Mac, or other device. Send them to the about page and
that is www.oldguardaudio.com/about.
Or do like I do, ask them if they have a Smartphone, the answer is
always yes, say let me see it, and show them. I am ordering some
business cards to help promote the show, I would be glad to send
you some to hand out to your friends, just send me an
email john@OldGuardAudio.com or
use the contact page on the website.
You can help by visiting the show home page, and just using the
Amazon link. Amazon has a program that allows podcasters to display
a link, and if you use that link to make a purchase, then I get a
small commission. During the Christmas ordering season, I was
encouraged by the Amazon purchases, but they have now diminished
greatly. I want to send a special thank you to the listener that is
using the Amazon links to purchase in the musical instruments
category. I would love to know how that Zoom H5 recorder and the
microphones are working. I use a Zoom H4 to record the episodes,
and I a gadget nut as well. So, Thank you very very much.
One way to save money around the house with Amazon, is to do what
my wife does, she uses Amazon Subscribe and Save. I just added a
link to this program at OldGuardAudio.com. The Subscribe and Save
program allows one to subscribe to items you use all the time, like
paper towels, bath tissue, laundry detergent. You get a Save up to
15% and receive FREE shipping on thousands of products. Then once a
month or whenever you say, you come home from work and find a box
of paper towels at your doorstep. You can really save money and the
time and gas from running to the big box stores all the time for a
roll of paper, or a box of baby diapers.
Yet another way to help, if you see a Google ad that interest you,
clicking on those send me a few pennies, and you don’t even have to
Additionally, I just added a PayPal Donate link if you just wanted
to send a donation. I don’t like asking for financial support, but
I will likely have to re-evaluate the value of the tremendous time
investment, and the cost of presenting the episodes, in the near
While this is not exactly a religious show, I would cherish your
prayers for me, for the show, and for our country.
Well, I thank you again, and pray that God blesses you and your
