Yes, there was nothing saying why but you have to wonder if it has to do with the 8,000 listing limit. If I am not mistaken the person who was concerned about the issue was part of OLA radio at one time.

Also, I thought there was a link to OLA radio on the home page at one time. I would really like to know what gives.

I got a personal letter from valerie fain and a check for 96.00 from OLA. I was told to refrain from using their site.

I was wondering what had happened to the "OLA-Radio" link that used to be on OLA's home page. Seems to have just vanished. I suspect that the radio show was doomed from the start, and continued to experience a series of unfortunate events.
*Beginning with the host's OLA member name "EbayandBeyond"... just never seemed too kosher to me.
*The numerous reports of technical difficulties causing listeners not to be able to log in.
*And who really wants to take the advice of an OLA Founding Member (with only three feedbacks) that sells pirate shirts and parachute pants.

I find it very odd indeed. Ola Radio programs have been cancelled before, due to the illness of the Host, Dave White.
However- I have never seen the Ola Radio LINK totally disappear before. Personally- I think the show has 'bit the dust'.
I rather enjoyed it every Thursday- Lots of good information there.

Gotta admit- I did find it strange that it came on with advertisements for.... EBAY?
Next, we hear, from Dave White (The Host) that Ola has NOTHING to do with the radio show- that HE (Dave White) alone... owns it. HUH ?
So... let's see... a weekly radio broadcast, that's ALL about Ola- selling on Ola- Ola members, etc. etc... Has nothing to do with Ola itself?

Now- I AM confused. I'm hearing (through the grapevine) that the Hiatus is due to.......POLITICAL reasons ?? and due to Dave's health (although he continues his Morning Show- Just not his Ola radio broadcast ?

I don't know.. but a 'wild' guess tells me that Ola has put an end to the show, or (excuse me) a Hiatus... Whatever- this time it warranted removing the Ola Radio link....Hummm.. Maybe they just realized they aren't being represented in a way they feel they should be represented ?

Next, and last guess... Maybe Dave decided HE no longer wanted to be associated with the show? Did Dave pull the plug ?

Your guess is as good as mine- but Ola Radio Listeners want to know.

Why do you think it has to be something 'wrong'? Why can't it just be that the host had major surgery and a show at the end of the day is just too hard on him?

As for the radio show being owned by OLA... the host does a show called eBay and Beyond, yet he doesn't own eBay or any other eCommerce site... eBay doesn't own that show (they have their own), and yet it exsists... I know it's a difficult thing to understand, but sometimes people just want to share their knowledge... no ulterior motive necessary. Some folks, believe it or not, just want to help others. Why is that so hard to understand?

Guys, quit looking for something sinister here. The show is on hiatus. That means the show, for whatever reason, is taking a break. No one, including BL, knows for sure what is going on. I understand looking for answers, but looking for them here? I understand being suspicious, but again, looking for the answers to why OLA Radio is on a break here? Give me a break! :roll:

I thought I saw the "ebayandbeyond" user name on Bonanzle, but I could be mistaken.

- Oh- I don't know... guess I'm just curious, like everyone else. Seems like you (the co-host of the broadcast) would know EXACTLY what's going on? Maybe it's just me... reading more into it, than I should- and I do know that Dave's been ill.. but he came back, and said he was feeling fine?
And I GUESS the Ola Radio Show (Notice that link that suddenly disappeared yesterday, said 'OLA RADIO'... Not 'EBAY AND BEYOND RADIO' ??

Ok- Lets check and see if there were any FLYING SAUCERS spotted in Dave's neck of the woods in the last few days- ?? :lol: I mean- He COULD have been abducted !! It could happen !! :lol: and... and... the Ola Radio link COULD just be a glitch ! :lol: Right? Betty Lou

Dave White suffered from a sudden illness as reported in several places.
The 8-13-09 broadcast of OLA Radio was skipped per the episode list on Talkshoe.
Further episodes continued weekly from 8-20 through 9-24, though I don't know which ones included Dave.
The link to OLA-Radio was still on onlineauction.com as recently as 10-4-09 according to a Google cached page.
Today the link is not there.
Talkshoe.com shows the next scheduled episode as "None".
Dave White owns the website ola-radio.com
That site currently states "Due to circumstances beyond my control, live broadcasts have been suspended"
The OLA Team blog still has the OLA Radio link posted.

I can find no more recent announcements, anywhere on the net, regarding the show or Dave's health. It appears to me that the broadcast that should have occurred on 10-1 did not, and that OLA did not remove their link until at least 4 days after that. Perhaps the circumstances are still health related, and we should keep Dave White in our prayers.

However, Dave also hosts Ebay and Beyond on Talkshoe, and that show continues weekly. There could be an alternate host involved for all I know. I have never listened to either show.

I am a little surprised MetzyMom doesn't know more than we do. I wonder if Dave would be willing to let her take over if she wanted to and asked him. It does appear that he has control, however, as only one host appears for the OLA Radio show, and he does own the ola-radio site. I have no idea how the inner workings of Talkshoe are handled.

All is speculation... [sepulchral voice]only the Shadow knows...[/voice]

BWAhhAAhhAAA Oh, my keys got stuck.

Quote: › docWrite("quote")Guys, quit looking for something sinister here.

Excuse me...... Excuuuussse meeeee. No one is "looking" for anything sinister, it just seems to appear whenever the OLA name is attached. Enlightend, well rounded business people KNOW that in order to keep their constituents from restlessness, they come out and explain beforehand why links disappear to $36 bonuses. Why a new member has to hit 8001 listings before anyone on the entire site of thousands(acoording to your own words)had a clue "unlimited listings" evaporated. Personally, I think the alien theory is incredibly appropriate to all other non-reasons we mere mortals are generally offered by OLA and their main representative. For example: OLA says via Ragmop that listing space is limited thus, the $196 investment now only gets 8000 auctions. With his very next breath, he says, spend a second $196 and space opens up. How on earth does that work? Aliens, thanks BL. Now, it really does make sense!

First said was this...

But then you state this...

So if "nobody" knows for sure, how can you come here claiming the above copied quote from your post is the truth? Why is everything everybody says about OLA not true, BUT when you state it, it is supposed to be the truth? Are you not doing, by your own admission above, what everybody else is doing? Speculating why the show was canceled?
But I get it. It seems to be ok for you to assume why, but nobody else can assume why, because then they are just wrong, but yet you are right?

Why not look for them here? OLA can not control what is said here or push it under the rug here like the do on their forums.

Mr.Ticked - Metzy at no time claimed she knew 'the truth'. Nowhere did she say or even imply that the possible answer that the host's surgery made the show hard was the truth, or even based on any 'insider' knowledge. She asked why that couldn't simply be the answer; why speculation had to lead to suspecting something 'wrong'. There was no need for a frontal and personal assault, IMO.

There was no personal assault on my part to her. I can if you would like.

I find it funny that she always comes in and sticks up for OLA, even when she is proven wrong.

Gee in the other thread she said OLA always gives and states notices about policy change. Yet you proved her wrong, but there she was stating it as the truth.

To believe anything she says anymore is just wrong. She burnt her bridge with her blog post.

She makes sure she comes into every single OLA thread and gives her same speech each time, it is a bit tiring, just as it is a bit tiring hearing about OLA's wrongs.

I will not argue with you PRG. Her posted comments have been saved by me coping them and each person can decide for themselves what it is meant to say with regards to her words.

You state she didn't mean she knew, I state she did mean she knew.

Simple
