    Yes, You Can

    I know musicians whom were really at the peak of their potential walk away from the business. They became frustrated. That’s so easy to do in this industry. Really, in any form of entertainment, you probably will hear the word “NO” more so than the average human being. Having a thick skin is essential in […]

    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 […]

    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.

    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 […]

    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 […]

    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.

    Mixed Reviews Does Not Taint Goal

    Before I sat down to write this column, I made sure to talk with a cross-section of people. Twenty-five years is a long time. Perhaps it was just that I was getting old. But, I played the new version of “We are the World-25” back to back with the original for several people after its […]

    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 […]

    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 […]
