  2. Is Baps not on a sponsored silence of some sort?

    Norrie has a few shouts in for tonight, but it looks like Whispering Grass is going to be a shoo in.
    Incredibly one of their Erics wrote in to thank them for playing Bohemian Rhapsody!!

  5. Christ! Nevermind Pudsey.. what age is that woman?
    I thought BB was going to have to nip out and buy more Tena Lady given the excitement expressed over the idea of wearing their pyjamas to work! Is that really the sum & substance of their idea if a works party?


    BTW heard Henri bought his way onto the playlist .. again!

    3. Nope, I just made a donation to CIN - no correlation between that and playing The Tings Tings... if you'd heard all 6:05 of King Crimson's "I Talk To The Wind" then maybe...no banana loaves involved, nothing wrong with The Ting Tings, it'll do me.

  9. Radio producer : Job description
    Radio producers are responsible for the audio content of broadcasts via radio, the internet and other mobile platforms. They are involved in the entire process, from generating ideas to managing the audience response after a programme. Producers manage and work with broadcasting assistants, presenters and DJs, engineers and IT staff. They may also be responsible for the business and commercial management of a programme.
    Producers can work in the publicly funded, commercial or voluntary sectors of broadcasting. Wherever they work, they are part of a digital revolution which is having a profound impact on the way in which radio is produced and accessed.

    Typical work activities
    Specific responsibilities vary from programme to programme and station to station, and producers may sometimes also take on the roles of presenters or reporters, but typical work activities include:
    • generating and researching ideas for programmes and pitching for commissions;
    • developing content, writing material for scripts, bulletins and links;
    • sourcing potential contributors and interviewees;
    • selecting music appropriate to the programme, the audience and the station;
    • producing pre-production briefings for presenters, reporters, technical staff and other contributors;
    • managing the logistics of getting people, resources and equipment together to the right place at the right time;
    • undertaking editing, interviewing and reporting duties as necessary;
    • being able to pass for famous English composers is an advantage
    • presenting programmes or managing presenters for both pre-recorded and recorded output;
    • checking that copyrights are cleared and understanding media law;
    • converting text, graphics, video and audio files into other formats;
    • contributing to and making use of an archive of audio resources which can be re-used;
    • responding to audience feedback, referring on to other departments as necessary;
    • producing and making use of user-generated content;
    • using technology, such as Radioman, Cool Edit Pro, Protools and Adobe Audition, for editing and production purposes;
    • ensuring that health and safety standards and trade union requirements are met.

    2. The producer is often in a separate control room, usually separated from the radio studio by a window, which allows visual contact while blocking noise.

      If only....
