It just occurred to me: all of these conference calling services are a nanometer away from reinventing the way call-in radio shows are done.
There are hundreds (if not thousands) of services that will allow you to hold conference calls - some are free, some aren’t. Some are better suited for private calls, some aren’t. There’s a conference calling solution for everybody. Well, almost everybody.
Last night, we did a little conference calling experiment. They assigned me a conference ID to share with the world, then asked me to instruct the callers to press 9 to “raise their hands.” When these callers indicated that they wanted to talk, Erik (from Gaboogie) took them into a private conversation to find out what they wanted to know.

Boom. Evolutionarily revolutionary. Conference calling is about to get VERY hot…
