    A Storm Is Brewing

    A storm is brewing that could very well drastically change the way we do our jobs in radio, records, and as recording artists. For radio stations in small markets, it could prove to be the beginning of the end. Legislation is currently being considered in Washington for radio stations to pay artists for airplay. Currently […]

    Don’t Underestimate Yourself

    It hasn’t been a banner year for many people. The economy has yet to make a significant recovery. People are struggling, even those with what I would consider to be extravagant incomes. This recession thing is something that we’re forced to participate in, whether we want to or not. So, as we near the end […]

    Why are you reporting?

    It’s been an interesting week. Monday, I got a call from a man representing a record label I had never heard of. He went on to tell me that he was working a single from an artist I vaguely remember from last year’s charts, and like all others that have called here for 20 years, […]

    Down The Nubbins

    My stations are not alone in this predicament. We’ve downsized….essentially not replacing folks when they’ve chosen to leave…..and we’re running on a bare bones staff right now. I don’t anticipate that it will change anytime soon. I do believe that it will get better, but that said….there will probably never be a time that we’ll […]

    Spanning The Globe

    About a year ago, I received an e-mail from a listener of our classic rock station from Wagga Wagga, Australia. We stream our signal on line, and through a website that gives people a menu of stations that fit their listening habits, Jeff found our station and loved the music mix. Through correspondence of e-mails, […]

    Not The Best Of Seasons

    Christmas time is usually a very festive time for me. Though my parents and grandparents have passed, I still enjoy the meals with extended family members and all that goes with the season. This past season, however, didn’t make the grade as one of my favorites. One of the men very much responsible for my […]

    Be Careful What You Wish For, It Just Might Not Come True

    It’s painfully apparent that there are many programmers on the beach right now in the radio industry. I’ve been flooded with e-mails from new “consultancy” groups….and after doing some homework, it’s not really a group at all, for the most part. It’s a stand alone former PD looking for their next gig, trying to stay […]

    Hey, I R A DJ

    When I first got into radio, to get your third-class radiotelephone license with endorsement (mandatory if you were ever left to be alone at the station), you had to take a test. You were required to know the intracices of how a station puts their signal on the air, be able to mathematically determine the […]

    All Roads Lead To Nashville

    If you’re a musician, at some point, the city of Nashville will be in your plans. Music City USA has earned its namesake. For decades, aspiring young, and not so young country artists have packed up all of their belongings and moved to the birthplace of country music as we all know it. A few […]

    Going Backwards With Radio

    A funny thing happened while I was reading the print version of my last column sitting at my desk here last week. A co-worker informed me that one of our competitors, a station that we’re head to head with in the Top 40 genre since our sign on 7 months ago, had gone to a […]

    Award Winning Award Show

    There seems to be an award show every weekend of the year now. I even got a flyer in my junk e-mail box this week about an award show for SHOELACES coming up in December. Not joking. Maybe it’s because of one too many elbows to the head in crowded places on my vertically challenged […]
