It's great that this is going so well! :thumbs:

I just noticed that on your FAQ page, it says Librivox... [has]... over 7,000 audio books in their catalog.

That's not accurate I'm afraid. We now have over 10.000 books in our catalog!

Would be nice if you could change that :wink:
Cheers, Ava.

Anna Karenina and Robinson Crusoe!

Great how you have set up the schedule with broad categories and books within those categories that repeat throughout the day.

You and the rest of the board have put in a lot of work to get this off the ground. Congratulations on all your achievements so far!

Major congrats and attaboys to you all!

I see that "Send Round The Hat" is on monthly rotation in the schedule, which is nice! If any of Henry Lawson's stories had universal appeal, I reckon it's that one. I wonder if Steele Rudd might have a similar broad reach? https://librivox.org/author/10892?primary_key=10892&search_category=author&search_page=1&search_form=get_results

Maybe might try and record a Station Identification MP3 this weekend.

Sorry, I had not been on the forum for quite awhile until today.

About feedback, we do get a little on Facebook and some in person.
I don't think there is any linked into our website, but that is a good idea!

Another question about the mix of fiction/non-fiction: We've got
plenty to work through of each. We are doing OK with that.

I always put on your stream when I want to listen to something but I don't know (or care) what. Just a pleasant voice, reading to me. And I'm never disappointed :)
