Radio with pictures – the next step?

5/28/2019
More
It seems some internet broadcasters have discovered video and are keen to stream their DJs hosting shows live across YouTube, FaceBook and Twitch.com among others. A friend who’s recently started live streaming his radio show in sound and vision tells me the interaction with viewers makes it worthwhile, as they post comments about the show […] The post Radio with pictures – the next step? appeared first on Instant Radio Station.

Time to turn back the clock on music radio

3/25/2019
More
Do we need to think differently about music radio? To take a quantum leap backwards to move radio forward? Once upon a time, up until the late 1980s (yeah I know – ancient history for some of you) DJs on the radio had space to let their personality shine through. DJ’s were hired because they […] The post Time to turn back the clock on music radio appeared first on Instant Radio Station.

How to make your radio shows more interesting

10/4/2018
More
I was listening to a syndicated radio show the other day. I won’t mention the presenter’s name, but she has a nice voice and plays a good selection of music; and as far as it went it was a pleasant show. Unfortunately every single link between the songs was nothing more that “that was, and […] The post How to make your radio shows more interesting appeared first on Instant Radio Station.

Launch a syndicated radio show

9/26/2018
More
It has to be said that many people like the idea of running their own radio station, but would be just as happy hosting a show and offering it out to broadcasters. All the gain with no pain. But there are a few things to consider for it to be a success for you and […] The post Launch a syndicated radio show appeared first on Instant Radio Station.

Dump those old jingles

9/21/2018
More
play the oldies by all means if that's your thing. But keep the station sounding fresh with contemporary jingles. Leave the vintage jingles where they belong - in the distant past. The post Dump those old jingles appeared first on Instant Radio Station.

Got a long show intro? Stop it now!

9/14/2018
More
Got a long boring show intro? Yeah, time to give it up I have a pet hate about the openings of radio shows. The issue seems to relate only to internet DJs, although I have also experienced this with podcasters too. So what is it that has got me to pound the keyboard today? My […] The post Got a long show intro? Stop it now! appeared first on Instant Radio Station.

How to sell advertising

5/10/2018
More
Getting an income from advertising or show sponsorship is possible – but don’t expect anyone to come knocking on your door to hand you cash. You have to go to them. But before you do there are a few hoops you need to jump through first. First off; you need to write and design a […] The post How to sell advertising appeared first on Instant Radio Station.

Give local musicians air time

5/5/2018
More
As commercial local radio has been eroded due to consolidation and the centralisation of ‘content’, so local communities lose a common voice that bonds people. As local broadcasters become little more than repeater stations or a home for voice tracked programmes that feature music selected by a suit in a far off city, something else […] The post Give local musicians air time appeared first on Instant Radio Station.

Why you need to be yourself on air

4/25/2018
More
Be true to yourself on air As a radio presenter working in the entertainment industry it is easy to see who the competition is. The competition is everyone else. And if you think like that you are in for a lot of disappointment and heartache. As a young wannabe radio presenter in my teens I […] The post Why you need to be yourself on air appeared first on Instant Radio Station.

Your radio station is under attack

4/21/2018

Both iTunes and TuneIn have gone cold on supporting broadcasters with both having admitted (rather than announced) that they will no longer accept new stations, and any that fall off their systems may not be put back when you ask.

Radio theatre – take your listeners to another world

4/17/2018
More
Let your imagination go wild with radio theatre The beauty of radio is that you can take listeners on a journey, you can transport them anywhere in the universe – real or imagined. Sound lends itself to the imagination, it can paint a picture in the mind of listeners – you provide the sound, their […] The post Radio theatre – take your listeners to another world appeared first on Instant Radio Station.

You have to make a connection

4/5/2018
More
A fellow nightclub DJ showed me a painting an artist had made of him years earlier. At the time Dave and I were working together at a club in Southend, and one night instead of going our separate ways he invited me to his home to chill down. It was there he showed me the […] The post You have to make a connection appeared first on Instant Radio Station.
