    Hello:

    I'm working on a website etc. with a woman doing some cool stuff with crystals & crystal skulls, and she's telling me she thinks she can get an interview on the Coast 2 Coast AM Radio Show (2nd highest syndicated radio show in the US, second to Rush Limbaugh).

    Question: That radio show has a reputation for overloading the guest's websites with traffic, so I'm curious about recommendations on where & how to put her website on a server that can handle that huge spike in traffic without going down?

    THANK YOU!

    Chef

    I don't have an answer for you but I do listen to Coast 2 Coast radio very often. You're right, if she gets
    a spot on that station, she will have a huge influx of hits. C2C has a very large audience and George
    Noory is a very popular and good host.

    Thanks for the input guys. FYI, I'm in Chicago right now and... they cancelled C2C earlier this year when (I'm guessing) their contract ran out - it got replaced with some late-night lameness show that is owned/produced by WLS's ownership. I REALLY miss that show, the best radio in the US in my opinion.

    No matter how long ago he stopped doing the show, I still call coast to coast the "art bell show"
