Woodstock 50 -- The Saga Continues

I always said, sometimes history should not repeat itself. This is my opinion for Woodstock 50. This event has been in trouble from the beginning and maybe it's time to say maybe it wasn't meant to be. Read the latest development from RTT Music News. Woodstock 50 has reportedly released all artists who were scheduled to perform at the music festival from their contracts. Representatives for the festival and organizer Michael Lang sent emails to the artists' agents informing them that they would not try to enforce performance contracts for the troubled event, which is scheduled to be held August 16-18, Billboard reported. Woodstock 50 was forced to relocate the anniversary festival to Marylan

Bland, Boring, Non Creative Traditional Radio

While working at traditional FM radio stations, I had little to no choice of what to play. There are a few reasons why terrestrial radio seems so boring, The same songs all the time,why? Two main reasons, consultants and advertisers. In my experience, when you hear that a station hired a consultant, you could rest assure that their playlist will be chopped to bits. I used to ask some of my Program Directors why certain songs which charted well in their day could not be played and they would respond "well, they didn't test well." This means that the song was played for a sample audience (15 -20 people) and received a low rating. Therefore, the song wasn't considered for airplay. I could neve

Carol King Musical is Coming to an End on Broadway

A Great Concert By A Classic Country Performer

It's hard to believe that it was 34 years ago that I walked out onto a stage at a venue in Sussex County,NJ to introduce Reba McEntire! I worked for a country radio station at the time and the station was hosting the event at the Sussex County Vo Tech! I was very nervous because it was the first time I appeared at a concert and Reba was big. With hits like "I've Got a Deal For You, One Promise Too Late, Little Rock and Whoever's in New England soaring on the country charts I knew that I was about to introduce one of the greats. Last night , 34 years later,I saw Reba at the Delaware County Fair in Harrington, Delaware. Even though the heat was unbearable, that didn't stop Reba from performin

Adapting to a New Way to Listen to Music

Remember the days of the transistor radio, the boom box, the multi-component stereo systems in our homes? These times are all but gone. We can ask a mobile device like an Amazon Echo to play any of thousands of stations or any genre of music. We can download an app to our phones or mobile device that contains thousands and thousands of radio stations. We have services like Pandora or Spotify where we can program our own music. So where does that leave traditional FM radio? AM/FM radio is still available in most cars. Local stations are having a difficult time getting that local audience since there is so much to choose from online stations and music. This challenge will be even greater in t

Radio Automation Can Be Boring

Internet radio offers thousands of different kinds of stations and music formats. Have you ever listened to an internet radio and asked yourself "What am I listen to and why am I listening to this?" Many stations will program music that makes no sense. There is no or very little imaging and it seems that one minute you're listening to country and the next minute you're hearing hard rock. You attempt to change the station but there is such a huge selection, you can't decide what to change to! Unfortunately almost all internet stations are automated and can be programmed fairly easily using a computer and automation software. The problem is many people that are programming these stations don

A Comprehensive Look at Internet Radio Royalty Rates

One of the monkey's on the back of internet radio broadcasters are the cost of royalty fees to run their stations. I believe the rates for small broadcasters is very high and unfair however, there's no point in complaining, the whole system needs to be re-vamped in order to create a fair playing field for all broadcasters. Services such as Live 365 consolidate the costs to broadcasters. You pay Live 365 and they take care of the Royalties. It is definitely the easier way to go.

Listening to Traditional Radio At the Beach, A Thing of The Past!

When I grew up, everyone took portable or transistor radio's with them at the beach. It was a beach necessity. While I was at the beach the other day, I purposely looked around to see if anyone, anyone at all had a radio with them and there was not one single person. Listening to music the traditional way has become a thing of the past. People now rely on their smartphones or tablets to hear or see their favorite songs performed. There are thousands of apps that play almost any radio station in the world. When I was young I would play around with the radio at the beach to hear the local stations. Today, I comfortably sit on the beach using my smartphone and a pair of bluetooth headphones to
