"naanu Ramesh, USA inda"
Yesterday nite @ 8:30PM i got a phone call from Sridhar saying that he would me meeting Film Actor Ramesh (in California) in 30min and he also asked me to see if I could try to stream it LIVE in our Kannada Kasturi 24/7 Radio station. The deal was I will set up the live feed from my laptop to our radio mainstream n Ramesh will talk to our radio listeners. I got everything setup for streaming in a very short *really short* span of time (thanx to praveen for helping me in testing it) and I even installed VOIP Buster to make a phone call from my PC so that I could stream my soundcard output to the radio. All set up n i just called up n Sridhar asked me to talk to Ramesh. For a second I was like MAAAAANNNN, i'm blank.. I went into a shock. Ramesh took the phone and

I felt so bad that I missed the most interesting part. I got really angry @ VOIP Buster software. Atleast, I was happy that I almost made it possible in the short span of time, working with 10different windows on my laptop ;)
*This was the first ever LIVE conversation in our radio station*. Now we know the pitfalls n next time, we know what to do to take care of it;)
PS: Ramesh is currently in USA for "Kannada Manoranjani" program to be performed in many big cities in USA. For details visit: http://www.akkaonline.com/charity2005/AKKACharity2005-ColorFlyer.pdf
