This evening’s featured guest on
The Mac Show, the Internet radio show about all things Mac, will be Laura Doyle, a singer who used Macs to self-publish her own CDs. Her debut album, “no easy answers,” can be purchased from
her Web site.
She describes her sound as a “cross between Enya but with more energy and Sinead O’Connor but with less anger.” Doyle is a Canadian artist whose first single, “Let You Go” is presently getting radio play on Vancouver radio station Z95.3 FM and is the regional winner of the National Songwriting Competition. The new album is a fusion of both electronic elements and acoustic instruments. Its 12 tracks were co-produced by Doyle and musician and producer Sean Eyre.
Tonight’s Mac Show will also feature the “What’s My Product?” game. You must be in one of the two chat rooms (more on those in a minute) in order to play and win.
In the “Tech Tips” segment sponsored by Tech Tool Pro 3, host/producer Shawn King talks to Steve Mielnicki, senior Macintosh systems analyst for the University of Pittsburgh’s Computing Services Department. He takes care of lots of Macs, and he’ll be talking with King on how he manages to do it.
My compadre, Peter Cohen of MacCentral, will be talking to Bill Roper of Blizzard about their games and, in particular, Diablo II: Lords of Destruction. The Mac Show will give out a couple of copies of the game.
You can catch The Mac Show every Wednesday evening from 6-8 p.m. (Pacific). And you can join in the Chat Rooms on the
World Without Borders site
or on the dal.net servers on IRC in the #macshowlive Channel.
