as a listener, i could not care less about these piddly little things.

for me, i want to access content in a way that works for me. for example, i do all my listening at home though a smart speaker - i'm not even sure i own a radio capable of picking up broadcast bands anymore.

One station i listened to had issues and was not available though the smart speaker. I didn't rush out and buy a radio to listen to it. I simply went to a competitor - in this case, a competitor from overseas.

With the prevalence of streaming it would be worth remembering that you are no longer competing with those in your local area - your now competing worldwide, and if i can't get the content i want, how i want it - i'll go elsewhere
If content is king, protecting your content makes common sense

This article has a lot about scripting however it's full of spelling mistakes. You would think if your job was writing you would know how to spell or at least use the correct spell checker such as English (Australian) instead of the American one. A Great Voice Over And The Last 5 Percent

Good Op Ed piece on Peter Hand. Oh my god, haven’t we all been there? Breaking out in a sweat, cursing ourselves for saying something and wondering what the consequences will be...if any.

One thing I DO know in this case is...I’ve been a friend and colleague of P. Hand for many years and I can safely say he is absolutely not a racist in any form. He’s a good bloke but has a habit of saying stuff he hasn’t thought through before saying it. But, as I say, haven't we all?
More than ever, be careful what you say on the radio

I would have not considered myself a 2ch listener as there was always a stigma associated with listening to this type of station, however since the appointment of Cherie, I have been listening on the 2ch app waiting for the change……changes in music, the content and the personalities has now shifted my attitude and my listening preference to CH……could this be the next big challenge for smooth & WS….. 2CH, Sydney’s new home of Classic Hits, launches a new line-up

I first met George not long after I started at 2BCR back in 1990. I found him to be funny, genuine and very easy going. He did some production work for me in the early days of my programs and even offered some friendly advice. Fast forward and even though he has made his final sign off that advice still rings true.

Always smiling, always with a laugh or a joke...the big grin will be sorely missed. Sleep well George.

Little T and Big T have just gotta put aside any dramas and work together, especially in the current era of "we can get an app for that" or "nah, we don't need to hire anyone, that new thing can be handled by $ExternalCompanyX"

Like everything else today, the radio business is also finding new ways to freeze or reduce headcount, so the more value both Big T and Little T can add, the more the business will value and look to them for new projects.
Big T, Little T - should “engineering” be different to “IT”?

I am so sad hearing this news..
A beautiful beautiful man who had the biggest heart, best sense of humour and would always go out of his way to help you.
RIP George. You’ll be very much missed and you’ve left a huge hole in the places you’ve worked at and the people who have met you.

There have been two recent articles (and many over the past couple of decades) that have warned of the demise of what James flippantly calls Big T. Technical standards across broadcasting have continued to fall because everyone seems to think that everything can be done by an app and nobody wants to pay for technical support with the result that just a few (mostly older) techs are now contracted to multiple stations and when faults occur, can only be in one place at a time to fix them. The recent streaming disasters are one case in point and having to wait "on hold" with a problem threatening on-air at the ABC is a personal experience I never thought I'd have to deal with.
