Web geekery mostly finished

The website is now moved to a new host, along with the corresponding e-mail addresses and the public links for our on-line performance of Radio-Road-Test, our audio archives, and our RSS/podcast feeds.   I'll take this opportunity to remind you of the links:

Radio-Road-Test listener page:

Radio-Road-Test audio archive for past tests:

RSS feeds of Radio-Road-Test:

Wednesday, October 08, 2014 just about back to normal operations; contest in future?

Our domain transfer was finally approved overnight; I've uploaded 90 per cent of the site to our new host, and will, by the end of the week, restore the playback functions on our Radio-Road-Test listener page to full operation.  They may work with last week's episode in the interim. 

Access for our affiliated over the air radio stations will also likely be restored over the weekend and also our RSS feeds of Radio-Road-Test.  I'll leave the affected programs from the past couple of weeks in the podcast playlist so you don't miss one. 

Also, if you followed the Twitter feed, you saw a tweet that might suggest that we were about to have a contest.  I'm working on the details and hope to announce them once the partner (a car care product company) signs off on what we want to do.

Thanks for listening, whether over the air, on line or by RSS/podcast.

Website Update

Because of our change of web hosts, the on-line version of Radio-Road-Test will be delayed until the cut over is successful.  When you click on one of our links at, you deserve, and should expect to get where and what you want from our website in four or fewer clicks without a lot of pop ups and other on line drama.  The RSS feed is still up for the moment, but will be off line when the cut over takes place.

We have uploaded this week's episode to our SoundCloud feed. It's our test of the real-world 30 mile per gallon Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland Edition with the 3 liter V6 diesel engine and 8 speed automatic transmission.

Thanks for your patience.  Just a heads up:  I'll be testing the 2014 North American Car of the Year in early fall.  It is, of course, he Chevrolet Corvette Stingray.  I always upload a snapshot and a quick preview of all the vehicles we test to our Twitter feed (msrpk_com).
