Mick Fleetwood, Lindsey Buckinghan Reunion off the Table

Mick Fleetwood has made it clear that he is not interested in a reunion with Fleetwood Mac's former guitarist Lindsey Buckingham. Buckingham was the latest in a series of guitarists to have parted ways with the rock band. Fleetwood said in a recent interview with Rolling Stone that he doesn't really know why Fleetwood Mac keep losing guitarists. Asked if he sees any chance to play with Buckingham again, the Fleetwood Mac founder replied in the negative. "Fleetwood Mac is a strange creature. We're very, very committed to Neil and Mike, and that passed away a time ago, when Lindsey left," Mick Fleetwood said. "And it's not a point of conversation, so I have to say no." "It's a full drama of Fl

Tribute to A Real Radio Legend

Another radio legend is gone. My favorite DJ and mentor Harry Harrison passed away yesterday at age 89. I grew up listening to Harry on WMCA , WABC and WCBS-FM in New York for many years. His friendly, relaxed, style drew me into this business. I met him several times and kept in touch with him for many years! I believe that Harry is the reason that I went into radio! He will be greatly missed! Harry was never vulgar, condescending, and he never insulted his audience. He was a voice that made you feel that things would be OK. This type of style does not exist anymore today. Today's music has changed so much that I believe that legends like Harry would be uncomfortable playing it. Harry leave

Sometimes Technology Can Confuse, Frustrate and Simply Drive You Mad!

One of the worst feelings is when a problem that is sporadic cannot be identified. Running an internet radio station is complicated. You can usually determine whether your equipment or automation system is faulty but as soon as the signal leaves your system, it goes into a sort of black whole. Yesterday, in the morning hours my stream began dropping and dropping and dropping. I use Xfinity as my cable and internet provider and I will tell you, their customer support is the worst. I won't waste time on that but I will tell you they were no help at all! I did get a new modem installed a few weeks ago and it seems to be working fine but I'm still not sure. My stream goes through an encoder an

Radio Disaster Remembered

When I first started in radio commercial radio back in 1978, there was no automation and really no way to cover up your mistakes. I landed a job doing the 11pm - 6am shift on Sat/Sun on WSUS 102/3 FM in Sussex County, New Jersey. The station had a "Town and Country" format at the time where every other song was country. Disco was the rage at the time and the station manager decided to add disco to the format on Saturday nights. Since I was a "newbe," I wasn't that familiar with where everything was located in the studio. I was just thrilled to be on commercial radio! All of the music was played on vinyl and there were two turntables in the studio. It was about 11:15pm and I was playing the

Keep Consistent but Keep it Interesting

I always stress consistency in radio programming. Quick unexpected changes will lose audiences. I once worked for a popular standards radio station in north Jersey. It always had marketing problems along with signal problems but it did have a core audience who loved hearing Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett and the like. The owners could never keep a sales staff for one reason or the other. Sometimes "mom and pop" companies are good but their micro - management could destroy a station! This station began adding infomercials interrupting the music programming throughout the day. The audience left in droves! The dedicated audience that the station once had was now gone! It's great

Appeal Court Revives Lawsuits By Michael Jackson Accusers

The lawsuits filed by accusers of the Michael Jackson child sexual abuse cases are now alive and well again. Here's the story by RTT Music news. In a widely expected move, a California appeals court has revived two lawsuits accusing late pop star Michael Jackson of child sexual abuse. The decision by the California 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals reverses previous rulings dismissing the suits brought by James Safechuck and Wade Robson, whose accusations were the subject of the HBO documentary Leaving Neverland. The lawsuits filed by Safechuck and Robson were previously dismissed because California law required such claims to be filed prior to the plaintiff's 26th birthday. However, California G

The Ever Changing Radio Landscape

WABC radio in New York City was the biggest Top 40 station of all time. It's booming clear channel 50,000 watt signal was even in the Pittsburgh rating books! In the early 1960s, WABC was committed to network programming like Don McNeals Breakfast Club which aired from 10:00 am - 11:00am every morning and an hour and a half news block which ran from 6pm to 7:30pm. This stopped the music flow and gave competing stations like WMCA 570 am and WINS 1010am an edge because they continued playing music at these times. After the network programming was no longer a requirement and Rick Sklaar became Program Director and tightened the playlist, WABC's ratings soared and soared so high that it was cons
