Requesting a slot for your show

You should have your audio recording ready to upload before you request a slot. In the case where you wish to reserve a particular slot but do not have the media recorded, you will need to get the reservation approved in advance by sending an email to the HPR mailing list. Be sure to allow as much time as possible, and include a reason why you feel it is necessary to reserve the slot.

You can post your show by going to the Calendar page. Once you have selected a date you will be redirected to the request page, where you will be asked to select your show and email address. We will send a link to where you can upload your show to this address and therefore it must be a valid working address that you can access quickly. We use GPG to speed up the validation of hosts, so you may wish to use an email address that has an associated public key available on public key servers.

Note: This email address will be published on the HPR website and will be given out in the feeds, so please use a public email address for this purpose. Where we publish it we pad it with dot nospam at-sign nospam dot.
i.e. hpr@example.com becomes hpr.nospam@nospam.example.com

Once you press next, an email will be sent to your email address pointing to where you can upload the show. You need to open the link within 15 minutes or the temporary lock will be released. Once you open the link, you can fill in the information at your leisure. The upload form works on the assumption you will be posting one show at a time, from the same IP address. Once you have pressed submit you will not be able to edit any of the information.

Adding the Episode

The unique link sent by email will allow you to manage both the episode and information about yourself that is displayed on HPR. The following information will be requested:

Personal Information

Remember All information will be displayed publicly. The only exception is that your email address will be sent in the feed with some anti-spam additions.

Episode Information

Press submit and your show will be sent to the HPR Volunteers to be processed. Keep an eye on the calendar for when it is posted.
