Promotional ideas and technique. Always radio, always positive.

Earshot Creative Review, holiday edition

Matt Lomax and James Stodd
It’s a lock-in.

Enjoy an extended edition with James Stodd of the BBC and Matt Lomax from Kiss. At an hour long, it’s perfect listening on your Summer holiday.

James’s audio shows how the BBC is using smart promotional techniques to convey public service messages while Matt demonstrates how he puts listeners at the centre of the Kiss imaging.

Together we discuss monitoring for the real-world, studio sound design techniques and we share your comments and reaction in a new feature: the EarShout.
