GETTING STARTED IN RADIO:
I really like this story on the MUSICROW website, it shows how loving something and being prepared to do the work gets results (I especially like JoJamie’s story about coming up with promotional ideas). My Music Row Story: BBR Music Group’s JoJamie Hahr – by LB Cantrell
Here’s a great story about Joe Bullard being inducted in the National Black Radio Hall of Fame – by Madison Glaser – from WCTV. Interesting how a career can start from answering a radio competition!
The BBC are set to broadcast a long-lost episode of Hancock’s Half Hour (one of the great radio comedy series). The radio show, which has not been repeated since first airing in 1955, will be played on Radio 4 on 18 October. If you want to hear clever writing, brilliant performances and some great comedy – this will be one to tune in for. More coverage on the British Comedy Guide site too.
Wallet Lockdown – is it a thing – have you never heard of it – read the story on Inside Radio and see how your ads could be affected. It’s well worth the read!

I hate it when I read stories/posts like this one on the ANewDomain website (with a badly researched story by Brian Wallace who is obviously selling social media) – 9 Ways to Make Your Restaurant More Appealing to Locals – where they claim that social media has a wider reach than traditional media – so, so wrong, in so many ways!
From the New Zealand Herald – Northland family wins $5000 on The Hits – and are heading on a “dream” trip to Rarotonga after winning a radio competition. Getting any press coverage is a good thing, and this is a great story.
Whatever you think of the Howard Stern Show – they sure know how to stir up some controversy – listen to the audio of a Tradio prank call to a Lexington, TN radio show. HERE

ITS GOOD TO SEE:|
A Peterborough Telegraph story now… a community radio station’s new Ukrainian radio show, which is hosted by a refugee broadcaster who fled the country moments before the outbreak of war, now living in the UK – Nazar Poliuk left Ukraine in February this year – crossing the Ukrainian border into Poland just two hours before the start of the conflict. The broadcaster and presenter, who previously appeared in films and on Ukrainian TV and radio, now hosts the Ukrainian radio show on Peterborough Community Radio (PCR FM) Extra alongside co-host Alla Irodenko.
