    Growing Quickly More Now Than Ever

    The announcement that R&R was closing shop shocked the radio world. Let’s face it- many of us never thought we would see the day that would happen. But these are very unusual economic times. Our government is now in the automobile industry. Medical care for all Americans could change permanently as we’ve come to know […]

    Monday, Monday. . .why I Dislike That Day

    Well, it’s time to blow off some steam. Maybe not steam, but this idea has been bouncing around in my head for quite a while now. Time to clear the air. I realize in this industry, radio, records, and the like, we all have jobs to do. And I’m convinced beyond a shadow of a […]

    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, […]

    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 […]

    Beauty Is In The Ears Of The Beholder

    If you live in or near a major city, you listen to top-notch radio talent, programmed by some of the best minds corporate radio has to offer these days, and you’re accustomed to a certain way a radio station sounds. Most likely, however, there isn’t a major difference to the average person as they travel […]

    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 […]

    Let Go Of Our Ears, We Know What We’re Doing

    This might be more controversial than I want it to be. I begin by admitting this to all radio station owners, and corporate moguls- the true success of a radio station is REVENUE, not how good it sounds. But it’s almost impossible to have one without the other. If you need a plumber, you don’t […]

    Things Are Looking Up

    It isn’t so bleak after all. The radio industry has taken a huge hit with the economic downturn the past couple of years. There’s no getting around that. Makes sense. Businesses are laying off employees and/or closing their doors. Advertising dollars that were there a few years ago aren’t there anymore. For now. Not that […]

    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 […]

    Tool Or Fool?

    It’s not uncommon for workplaces….especially in the entertainment industry, radio personalities…..to use the wide array of social networking sites out there to step “out of the box” to promote their on-air talent, on-air promotions, and the overall station presentation. But make no mistake about it. As much as it can be an attribute to your […]

    Out Of The Box Is “Out Of The Box”

    Back in the good ol’ days of radio, when a station would add a record “out of the box”, it was just that. You received it, listened enough to KNOW it was going to chart, because of many variables….and you were on it. You would be rewarded later to see medium and major market stations […]
