YouTube Channel Caught Up

Since I announced the YouTube channel a little more than four months ago, I’ve been working to bring our show’s archives to YouTube to introduce the Great and after a long process filled with trial and error, I’m pleased to announce that were caught up to where I want the channel to be. As it’s an archive, the YouTube channel is ten weeks behind the podcast feed.

Currently our YouTube channel features 2,243 videos including the last eight episodes of our Public Domain Video Theater. With YouTube’s Playlist feature, listeners can from start to finish through fifty-eight series playlists as well as seven complete seasons playlists. In addition, we have special playlists such as the one containing all of our special episodes and our lady sleuth playlist.

What’s next for the channel? Those who follow the show the show on YouTube will get six new detective episodes a week on a daily schedule of the Great Detectives of Old Time Radio. In addition, I’ll be posting old episodes of the Amazing World of Radio and the War. I won’t be posting Superman as there are way too many episodes of that series that it needs own channel. I’ll also be working on a channel trainer and getting channel art added.

Youtube is a great new venture, but our podcast remains our primary contact with the audience. Last month, we had under 16,000 views on YouTube which is pretty impressive until you realize we had 713,000 unique downloads from the podcast. However, you interact with the show, as always, thank you for listening and for supporting the show.
