Ron Dhanifu: A Lifetime of Radio Activity
Blog Name: Jazz 88.3 BlogAuthor: San Diego's Jazz 88.3 Posted on: November 15, 2012
Here's a recent article written by Robert Bush about Jazz 88.3 host Ron Dhanifu's life in radio that was originally published in the San Diego Troubador.  

It’s always been about the radio for me.
—Ron Dhanifu

“I feel like I was born to do this,” says Ron Dhanifu. Dhanifu mans the afternoon slot, from 1-4pm, on KSDS, the local jazz station. When he says he was born to be a disk jockey, he speaks from experience. He’s spent 40 years in radio, 30 of them (in two installments) at KSDS.

Red Bull - Marketing Genius??
Blog Name: Riffs on RadioAuthor: Ann Bauer , Underwriting Account ManagerPosted on: November 8, 2012

So, am I the only one who didn't pay much attention to the stunt when the guy broke the sound barrier?  I guess 8 million people watched it live, but when I saw the story on the web, I thought, "Ho hum."  It's not that it wasn't a feat, and must have been incredibly frightening and cool at the same time, but I was hardly overwhelmed with excitement.  And, here's the kicker, I didn't even read the writing all over the guy's suit.  There.  I said it.  I didn't even notice it.  Sponosors' logos on sportswear have become ubiquitous.  Like graffiti, they make people's eyes glaze over.  

And yet, marketing people are all abuzz about the marketing genius of Red Bull Stratos further blurring the lines of differentiation between advertising, cause marketing and blatant self-promotion. 

Was this a brilliant was to sell more product?  Probably.  As a non-user of energy drinks in general, my loss is no big deal to them.  Besides, I'm hardly in the demo.  

But from another point of view, I can't think of much that would make me less likely to ever consider the purchase of a Red Bull can.  I find this stunt environmentally offensive.  The author of the post says, "The beauty of Red Bull Stratos is that it's not just a sensational stunt, but a business move that could translate into estimated sales of tens of millions of dollars, according to Ben Sturner, founder and CEO of Leverage Agency, a New York City-based sports, entertainment and media marketing company."  Ick.
