As you read this, most are just getting back into the swing of the daily radio routine, so let me wish you a Happy New Year. To celebrate the advent of 2019, I want to hit the ‘reset’ button and see if we can really boost the quality of radio industry production in the...

This will be my last blog of 2018. The week between Christmas and New Years Day is my one week of broadcast exile, when I don’t even think about radio, announcing or production. During the year, my weekends are pretty much my own and now that I’m no longer grinding pro...

I’ve been following a discussion on one of the Facebook radio boards  that I find quite hilarious, though at the same time very sad. One ‘side’ on this thread believes consultants are a valuable part of a station’s makeup, while the other ‘side’ complains that consulta...

For YEARS at Z100, I had a reputation for being a grumpy old man, long before I even got old enough to be considered  an old man. The grumpy part was absolutely true though. There were, over the years, several AEs I never met because they had been warned by others, “Do...

Every now and then, as a voice-over artist, I get that dreaded phone call from my agent, saying that station XXXX no longer requires my services. Usually, I react with an urbane “I understand,” even though there have been times when I really didn’t. What I’ve often wan...

Well…you can’t do both.

It’s Thanksgiving week and even though many are not in the least religious I’ve long thought that, being a national holiday, it’s just a good point in the year to sit down and think about everything we have to be grateful for. I’m not one to prattle on about my persona...

I recently cruised the Internet to satisfy my curiosity about how the “experts” define branding and don’tcha know that of the 25 or so articles I looked up, every one had a different definition? They all were in the same general ballpark but some of them were so vague,...

Close your eyes for a moment and listen. (I’ll wait.) OK. What did you hear? Your CPU fan…some hiss from the monitor system…your own breathing…a page out in the hall for someone to please pick up their pizza at the front desk…maybe you heard your chair squeaking. (Hell...

As a producer of organized noise, you have a big toolbox, filled with implements like copy, voice, music, sound effects, humor, drama, prose, poetry, volume, mass and innuendo. (Innuendo is not an Italian suppository.) I think it’s time we double-check music and while...
