About Let’s Talk Computers

Let’s Talk Computers® (LTC) wants to take this opportunity to thank you for making LTC one of the most enduring computer talk shows in this ever-changing business.  We are one of the first web sites to combine the radio talk show format with the familiarity of an insider’s perspective.  This dynamic combination actually began over 15 years ago and is still going strong.  Produced in Nashville, Tennessee, USA, it is broadcast via radio in 7 states: Tennessee, Alabama, Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, Texas and New Mexico and on the World Wide Web via the Internet 24/7.

What is it that keeps our guests and our listeners coming back for more?  Let’s face it; all computer talk shows are not created equal.  Here’s how LTC goes to work to give your company and your products the most dynamic exposure.   

·     When you are scheduled on Let’s Talk Computers you will receive the VIP treatment you deserve.  Hosts, Alan & Sandra Ashendorf get to know each guest during a preliminary conversation, which allows the special personality of each guest and product to shine.   

·     Why do we use an actual shipping product for review?  We test your product in real-life situations just as your customers do.  Since we use the actual shrink-wrapped product, not a pre-release, beta, or evaluation copy, our listeners are confident that your product will work for them as it does for us.  They know that they can trust our evaluation because we have the same “out-of-box” experience. 

·     The actual interview takes approximately 20 - 30 minutes.  During this time period, we only incorporate the points agreed upon during your confidential conversation.  Our state-of-the art sound equipment allows us to filter our conversation and guarantee a “clean” broadcast.   

·     Since your interview will be heard for years to come, LTC prides itself on each being a work of art.  Your original 20 minute interview is edited to approximately 14 minutes by our staff, removing irrelevant sounds and awkward pauses.  Our objective is to make each guest’s segment reflect the professionalism you want your company to portray. 

·     Our work doesn’t end when the interview is complete. Days before the interview is scheduled to air, our partnership with Marketwire, M2 and other press release services goes to work.  Press releases, announcing your interview, are distributed to over 3.3 million consumers and over 40,000 journalists.  And these press releases do not stop there.  Other news organizations such as UPI, Yahoo Financial, RCW Mirrus, and Bloomberg Financial have redistributed these releases.  

·     An optional transcript can also be prepared to be place on your web site to draw in more potential customers. A link to your transcript is also included in your press release. This transcript only resides on your website .

·     Your interview is then released for syndication to multiple radio stations and placed on our website.  LTC has reserved a separate page for each of our guests and only your interview will reside on that page.  Our listeners will be able to hear your interview in both Real Audio & Windows Media Player streaming audio formats anytime, from anyplace on the globe. 

·     We keep you informed after the fact, as well.  You will receive a copies of web pages that republish the release.  Copies of the interview are available to the guest or contact upon request.   

When you have new products coming out, be sure to keep us in mind.
