GOTC on Hold

I’ve decided to put Get Off the Couch on hold for a while.  You may have noticed there have not been any new episodes lately.  I’m really focusing on my other show, Voices of Texas, and I expect to be directing a lot of my energies at that project.

That said, I do plan to revive GOtC, perhaps this fall.  In the mean time, please give my other show a listen at voicesoftexas.com, or look it up on iTunes or Stitcher Radio.
