The problem with Podcast’s is that it is not live and will not attract people like my show on KNRY did . When I was on the Air people could talk to me about things in music they wanted to hear or even about life while the record was playing . My Job as a DJ was like a Bar tender . Or even like a bother or friend to the people who called.
The Live show is what really matters to many people and the podcast thing just seems dead.
Example , when I am broadcasting on Banana Belt radio I will be sending a stream to all of the ALPB Stations and will have a phone number for people to call in for requests and even just to talk… I don’t do talk shows as I don’t think there is any reason for me to do one , but I do live Music shows like an old time DJ when we were Kids and when I was on KNRY my phone with light up every night for requests and such.
As the year went on my ratings were climbing and my show was making everyone at KDON FM nervous , The Program manager called every night I was on the Air to try to see how I was able to start this show and bring all of the listeners to it.
I told him over and over it’s the live aspect of it and the music is alive with new songs and old songs living together ..
A Pod Cast is not going to draw a listener like a live show.
So I am looking at AM Stereo to make the show even better.
The Job of a DJ is to make people feel like you care and you must talk to the audience like they are in front of you.
In other words , A DJ Like me must care about his audience and must always try to put a positive vibe out there.
Trust me I really do care about radio and I really care about bringing folks to our stations and I will do my very best to produce a show that makes you all proud to be part of the ALPB.
ArtisanRadio thanks for the post and trust me when I say this , everyone should share their thoughts on all of this so we can all talk and learn from each other .
