I was listening to one of my regular podcasts last week when a point raised by the host just fired raft of thoughts and emotions in my head all at once. They mentioned that when someone meets them they can tell from the way they are greeted, where the person knows them from. If theyContinue reading “It is personal”

There is a story which is bubbling in the USA at the minute surrounding the use of non-compete clauses in contracts. I listened to a podcast discussion on it recently with interest, and read a post and whilst the differences to the UK radio market are stark, the argument chimed a bit. Firstly, what isContinue reading “Non-compete”
It is one of those words that becomes more weird the more you say it. MOOD, mood, mood, mood, mood, mood. A small word with a big impact. In reality it can be a massive impact. A person in bad mood, or a low mood can find it totally debilitating. When it comes to theContinue reading “Mood”
Hurry up and slow down.
In the words of Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel, “Slow down, you move too fast.” (Feelin’ Groovy. Simon & Garfunkel, 1967). I’ve been thinking about pace, speed and urgency- and it seemed to crop up a few times this week during a number of events and tasks. Modern society manages to give a level ofContinue reading “Hurry up and slow down.”
I have posted a blog post before regarding doing things that scare you– challenging yourself and others and keeping the brain alive. This week I’ve been thinking about the small changes, the seemingly meaningless, incidental changes that could take place, but you don’t do them because you don’t believe they will make a significant differenceContinue reading “Elephants”
Butcher of the beats
Whilst scrolling through social media, a post caught my eye which resonated with a recent thought I had. I had been pondering drafting a post for a while about music use and music respect- nothing too dramatic, just a few random thoughts which went through my mind whilst listening around, and the social post seemedContinue reading “Butcher of the beats”
Do the numbers add up?
This week another set of ratings get published for radio by Rajar. Every 3 months new numbers appear- distributed to stations on Wednesday, then made public at 00:01 Thursday morning. This isn’t a post about the ratings analysis- who might go up, or down, or dramatically collapse or gain. There are a few of thoseContinue reading “Do the numbers add up?”
Are you human?
New year- new blog post. Happy New Year! I pondered for a while between consuming mince pies about what to post about in this specific post. Numerous ideas came through my brain and foolishly I didn’t write any of them down at the time! I did some catching up on podcasts I’d missed recently andContinue reading “Are you human?”
Its a performance, so perform.
The most charismatic personalities give something of themselves in their work. They make things real, believable and understandable by reflecting part of their personality though their work. They bring something which audience members, listeners and viewers can relate to and lift it from the page or script. In short, they PERFORM their work. The veryContinue reading “Its a performance, so perform.”
In order to maintain some sense of control, safety and to coordinate the potential chaos, major roads have lanes. Imagine if that wasn’t the case and a four lane motorway had no lane markings or organisation. Can you picture the carnage and free for all there might be? Its bad enough if you have everContinue reading “Lane control.”
