Ideas and technique to help you promote and image radio

Earshot podcast: April 2010

Arden Hanley of Global Radio (Aussie) and Chris Nicol of WizzFX (Kiwi) now both loving London. Plus a man with a foil tray.

It’s the Earshot Creative Review radio podcast for April 2010. Once again, we recorded it in a pub.

This month you’ll hear the voices of Arden Hanley (coughing like a jet plane in an ash cloud), myself (carrying a cold so heavy it got checked into excess baggage) and Chris Nicoll (as beautifully uncongested as Britain’s airspace).

Arden leads the imaging teams for 95.8 Capital FM, XFM and the Hit Music Network of which he said:

“You can’t dictate from London something that will work in Nottingham, for example or something that will work in Wales.”

Arden also runs the Ruptured Spark imaging house. Chris, meanwhile, is a freelance writer and producer who operates as WizzFX and is currently working for Global Radio, Jack FM and other stations. He  arrived in the UK from New Zealand last year.

In the podcast we play and talk about loads of great audio from the UK, New Zealand, Germany and Ghana. We also consider what the Sony Radio Academy Award nominations mean for radio producers.

Don’t forget to get in touch with your comments and contributions to the podcast – your input makes it a better show  – we’re all in this together etc.
