Earshot podcast: extended imaging edition

Tony Blackburn and Steve Martin

Tony Blackburn and Steve Martin

I love it when we do a magazine format edition of the podcast. Not just for the stories and the people but also because I get to do a high-energy menu sequence at the top!

Here’s what’s in this edition:

Two of the world’s leading station imaging production companies pitch their demos head-to-head. Wise Buddah’s Mark Goodier and Anthony Gay from Reelworld Europe explain how their organisations are tracking the changing needs of radio stations across the world.

Paul Plant introduces No Sheet Music – a new production library designed to lift the production standards of radio and more.

Tony Blackburn shares his enthusiasm for the radio jingles that help give his programmes such popular appeal. PAMS are his favourite.

Anthony Timmers invites you to attend the first Imaging Days event, taking place in Amsterdam on 8 and 9 September. Apparently Amsterdam has the most imaging per square metre.

Colin Kelly on the BBC’s Commonwealth Voices – a pop-up station that explored the story of Glasgow and other Commonwealth cities during the Commonwealth Games.

…and a few other cheap thrills for anoraks.
