Hi Danielle and all:

The mainmenu.acbradio.org site is written in outdated php code.

So other than adding new shows to the shows.php page and the rss.xml feed we are not going to make any updates to the site.

This is due to the php code being out of date and the site being unstable.

I am working on building a new main menu feed and show page that will be on the main acbradio.org site which is written in drupal.

Once the feed content has been successfully ported over the mainmenu.acbradio.org site will be phased out.

Well thanks for the hedds-up about the broken links. It's like that on the BlindCoolTech site  as well.  I wonder why there are 2 sites full of broken links. I mean it costs to have  these sites stay and why would anybody keep on paying to keep a site of broken links. And yes I feel the same way Cullen. It provides a nice history of AT.
