Love of Reading Gallery – Diane deGroat

Tuesday, August 26, 2008.

Love of Reading Gallery - Diane deGroatIt’s a fun job and somebody has to do it.

We’re talking about interviewing 51 artists, professionals, hobbyists and children — artists all — about their drawings for our Love of Reading Gallery. It’s all part of the celebration of the second anniversary of the Just One More Book!! children’s book podcast.

On this edition, Mark speaks with author and illustrator Diane deGroat about her contribution, Read Me a Story, Gilbert.

By the way, if you know Mark you know that he’s very particular about good audio quality. More importantly, he’s extremely particular about great conversation. Unfortunately, his audio card acted up during this interview (one of three) and the resulting audio is disappointing. The conversation is too good to attempt an encore performance. We assure you that if you can be patient with the audio quality, you’ll be rewarded by the discussion.

Be sure to enjoy all of the amazing artwork in our Love of Reading Gallery.

Hi Mark and Andrea, I can’t seem to be able to hear it. It stays buffering for a long time and nothing happens. Maybe is just me, but I thought I should tell you guys just in case.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. I have done some testing and have discovered that this episode (the interview with Diane deGroat) is only buffering, not playing in the online player. This problem does not exist for subscriptions or using the download link.

I am currently working to identify and correct the problem.

Is that the only episode you are having troubles with?

Alicia… thanks for your help identifying the problem to us and confirming that the problem has been fixed. It turns out there was a problem with the illustration image that I embedded in the MP3 file (first time that’s ever happened to me).

Problem solved!
