Ideas and technique to help you promote and image radio

Earshot Creative Review for January 2011

Ben Townsend, Steve Martin and Jonathan JJ Jacob.

Our guests this month are JJ (Jonathan Jacob) of First Radio Sales and recent graduate from the University of Nottingham Ben Townsend who helped secure URN‘s recent clutch of student radio awards.

In the podcast you’ll hear audio from Liverpool’s Juice FM, City Beat of Belfast, Surrey and Hampshire’s Eagle Radio and URN. We also discuss how student radio is feeding mainstream stations with new talent on both sides of the mic, and play some great audio from Australia’s 2Day network and the new Capital FM network.

You’ll also get a head start in our new competition to win a voice session with Hobsons.
