Re: Does Situations Wanted Section Actually Work???

I've wondered that also. Especially talents that don't bother to have a place for a PD to find out more about them without having to email or call. It seems pretty standard in this day and age to have at the very least a Soundcloud (or like) account and/or FB page or geeze a FREE website through Wix...

Re: Phones

I'll admit, that after almost 20 years of doing radio I am still surprised as to what gets people to call in. My PD calls it a "moment of truth" and it could be anything. People like to feel knowledgeable. So give them a way to inform you of something. I asked for a list of a local town's claim to f...

Re: Why he can't get a job

At least Carter has a website where he's posted his demo and info about his show. That's more than most people looking for jobs can say. Reading the "Situations Wanted" section, rarely do I see someone with a website directing PD's to go there and check it out. They put their phone number and email ...

Re: Always wondered-never had the guys to ask...

I have to ask, too..."so?" I mean, the more I think about it, the demos are different and thus your bonus (if you're lucky to get one) isn't really affected. Just your ego, right? I'm not saying it's right, but then I don't have a head for business, I'm here cuz I love it. But unless they specifical...

Re: Rush, We Hardly Knew Ye

@ MNFRI...That's what I get out of NPR. It may be "Libbie Radio", but at least I feel like I'm getting more than just snippets and headlines. Plus, there's no yelling (unless you listen to "Car Talk"). It seem intelligent, emotional, thought provoking and I can only hope that this type of journalism...

Re: Talk Host Salaries, Please Help

This link might be helpful http://www.payscale.com/research/US/Job=Radio_Show_Host/Salary It allows you to search for local data, so in small, medium or large markets and also by employer. It looks pretty accurate to me as I've worked in everything from unrated markets to #12. Most of us have suppor...

Re: Tear my aircheck apart, All Access.

Are you serious? I got through 15 seconds...I bet a PD wouldn't listen that long. Nice voice, now find something real to talk about. Show your personality, don't hide behind masturbation jokes. It SOUNDS like a fake aircheck (which I understand it is), but there are ways to make it sound real, enter...
