Much of "traditional" talk radio doesn't have much of an amount of female listeners. On Free Talk Live, we're proud of our female listeners, and simply want to show them off to Program Directors, and other listeners. As you may know, female callers come first on Free Talk Live.2. What is "Validating"?
Originally encouraged, now required, Validation is how we weed out the fakers from the Shrine.
You need a picture or video that includes you with evidence that you listen to the show. This is usually a sign/paper that has "Free Talk Live" or "FTL" visible on it. Please also include a little about yourself. Submit your entry via email to ian at freetalklive.com2B. Getting your "FTL Shriner" rank on this BBS.
Just let me know your BBS handle via Private Message, and I'll take care of it. FTL Shriners can moderate the Shrine forum.3. Origins of the Shrine.
The Shrine of Female Listeners was inspired by the Phil Hendrie Show. Phil is credited on the FTL "About the show"
page as one of Ian's influences.3B. Are the Shrine and Wall exactly the same?
No. For a while, Phil's Wall was not growing due to lack of on-air promotion. We were actively adding Shriners while the Wall appeared dead. A recent check of Phil's Wall reveals they are again growing it (inspired by FTL?) and are also doing their own "Validation". It appears the Wall may have been validating for longer than the Shrine. However our Validation process was inspired by fakerssuck.com
, we were unaware that the Wall was also validating. Therefore, our validation methods are markedly different. The thumbnail pics on the Shrine are also larger than those on the Wall, plus Shriners get descriptions while the Wall only gives names. As of 2010, it appears Phil has removed this feature from his website.
Any questions about the shrine? Post away.
