Whatever You Do, Don't Call Yourself Radio!
Blog Name: Riffs on RadioAuthor: Ann Bauer , Underwriting Account ManagerPosted on: September 22, 2014

Chances are, if you don’t work in advertising, you haven’t given this idea a second’s thought.  But, but those of us in broadcasting, semantics can be everything! And I just made a deliberate choice; I used “broadcasting,” instead of “radio.”  That’s the discussion:  The word, “radio.”  Media types from everywhere are starting to shy away from using the word.  They are afraid that identifying as a “radio station” brands them as old fashioned, backward-thinking, static.  In other words, the exact opposite of what a thriving communication vehicle has to be in today’s world.

The most recent buzz came a week ago when the monolithic Clear Channel changed its name to IHeartMedia. “iHeartMedia reflects our commitment to being the media company that provides the most entertainment to the most engaged audiences wherever they go, with more content and more events in more places on more devices,” said Bob Pittman, Chairman and CEO. 

Some people in the business paint this name change as the tolling of a lone church bell. Michael Harrison, talk show host and publisher of RadioInfo, wrote  “The systematic abandonment of ‘Radio’ by ‘Radio’ is a disturbing half-baked trend, that although understandable in the big picture of communications, poses an unnecessarily sped-up threat to the livelihoods of everyone in the radio business – not to mention the fundamental role of audio-media in both the spoken-word and musical arts.” {{split}

While I appreciate the fact that communications have been forever changed (I don’t call my kids, I text them.) I don’t think Clear Channel’s name change exacerbates the death of radio, any more than VHS tape caused the death of television. It wasn’t recorded programming, but the emergence of so many channels, many delivered in new ways, has drastically reduced the viewership of the Big Three networks, but people still spend hours in front of their  screens, watching --- something.

You read it everywhere, Content is King.  Content sources, whether broadcast, webcast, or recorded, are in greater demand than ever.  The variety of options available has created a more discerning consumer, who selects the distribution hardware to connect to that content based on a number of options.  A medium that provides content that consumers want, and can get easily, will hardly fall out of favor due to its name.

More years ago than I care  to count, I was a fresh, baby media buyer, at a local agency, I still remember the astonishment in a VP’s voice when I suggested that a client, a car dealer no less, consider using radio to reach the target audience, as a more  affordable option.  RAAAAAAADIO???? His voice echoed down the hallways. At that time, the common wisdom was that car dealers advertised on television. Period.  “Why on earth would you suggest RAAAAAAADIO???” I told him.  We tried it.  It worked.

It still works. 

“Radio” is nothing to be ashamed of.  Using the word, “radio,” is not damning.  As active participants in the 21st century, we broadcast music, and we also webcast.  We have a lively interactive media presence, and a huge base who have download for our mobile phone apps.  We publish eNewsletters and post listen-at-your-leisure recorded programs via our website.  All this, along with a variety of youth-oriented music education programs, springs forth from our call letters. 

The folks at Clear Channel can dub themselves whatever they want.   After all, a rose by any other name . . . right, Will? 

                                                                                                  - 30 -

Kenny Wheeler Rest In Peace
Blog Name: Home Page NewsAuthor: San Diego's Jazz 88.3 Posted on: September 19, 2014
The flugelhorn can sound really nice and one of the most notable practitioners of the instrument has passed away. Kenny Wheeler would open his tunes to interpretation by some of the top Jazz musicians of the time. He was widely admired and it only takes a quick listen to appreciate his accessibility. Read this article for more.

Even after review the vibe was cool. Rest In Peace, Kenny Wheeler. We all know the future is now.
  • Gnu High, 1975 recording. Kenny Wheeler with Keith Jarrett, Dave Holland, and Jack DeJohnette. Played the whole thing. Brilliant isn't strong enough. Neither is stunning, nor is mindblowing. Heyoke and Gnu Suite are long pieces but the intensity never waivers. Smatter is only six minutes but its punch is not pulled. Throughout, the artistry is astounding.
  • David Borgo has some new music coming out and the Progressive Nights staff is understandably thrilled. Positive anticipation but I hope the new disc title is easier to say than Micro Temporal Infundibula. Hard to type, even.
  • Taylor Ho Bynum is riding his bike from Canada to Tijuana. Hope to get a word as he zooms past...Stepwise.
Thanks for listening

3 Giant Losses for the Art Form, Daniel, Gerald and Joe
Blog Name: Home Page NewsAuthor: San Diego's Jazz 88.3 Posted on: September 15, 2014
The last few week's have provided major blows for Jazz.  We lost one of our very own here in San Diego (Daniel Jackson) but also Gerald Wilson and Joe Sample.  These men were integral to the art form as composers and arrangers.  Their trumpet and piano, respectively, lent to the honest voice of jazz music.  For Gerald, it began in the Jimmie Lunceford Orchestra in 1939 when he replaced the star trumpeter in the group at the time (Sy Oliver). Joe's contribution started in hard bop and grew into many different styles of playing. Both men led bands and forged new roads. Their music and jazz history will preserve forever.

There was something in the air that made hesitation seem inexcusable.
  • The Diminished Triangle by Gerald Wilson was grand and sweeping, varied and flexible, a showcase for strong writing and playing. He contributed greatly, rest in peace.
  • The Great Lake Suite will prove to be problematic because it's pretty deep in the dig/digest/grok sense and it provides endless variables of any/all elements. Wadada Leo Smith, Henry Threadgill, John Lindberg, Jack DeJohnette.
  • Charles Gayle is commitment personified. He is like a laser beam of intention balancing between Larry Roland and Michael TA Thompson.

Daniel's passion for the music and the energy it creates was unmatched. Born in La Jolla and graduated from San Diego High School, he was the epitome of San Diego Jazz. A staple. His collaborations and relationships with legends like Lenny McBrowne, Art Farmer, The Adderley brothers, Jimmy Smith, to San Diego's own- Marshall Hawkins, Charles McPherson and Gilbert Castellanos is a testament to his gift of expression. He will be cherished always.

Jazz 88.3 will be hanging out at the San Diego Blues Festival, a benefit for the Jacobs and Cushman San Diego Food Bank, Today (Sunday) at the Embarcadero Marina Park North. This year, come out and groove to 18-acts, including Eric Burdon & the Animals, Elvin Bishop, Tommy Castro & the Painkilllers, Blues Hall of Famer, Lazy Lester and more. In San Diego County, 462,000 people live in poverty and face “food insecurity” which means that little or no food is available at home and they often will not know where they will get their next meal. With that being said, the mission of the San Diego Blues Festival is to provide great blues music at an affordable price and raise money to support the battle against hunger in our community. So come out and hang out for a good cause! We'll see you there!
