RadioToday Roundtable February 2020…



The radiated a program with broadcast bionics created of the bionic studio the smarter way to make radio welcome to guilt free post in Soho in London it's the February round table from Radio today and see who's joining us on the radio Consulting work in Europe and in this post brexit error.

I'm currently in transition manager and the owner of North Media Talent have done this a long time and worked with lots of lots and and and I work for National prison radio and I produce most of my content from behind bars and you got an awarding you at the audio production awards.

Yes, I was nominated for best station sound I was going to ask you first because you work with a lot of young people.

Why is it? They don't listen to the radio and yet and yet.

We keep hearing about young people wanting to be on the radio.

It's fair to say all young people don't listen to the radio.

I think quite a lot of us do listen to the radio.

We listen more on demand.

We do live sometimes.

We listen to be on it.

Yes a lot of young people want to be on the radio.

They want their voices heard they want their opinions head for that reason.

They want to be on the radio Chris we talked on last month's programme about the Radio 1 new voices at Christmas initiative.

Are you still finding that young people are coming to you and wanting to be on the wireless absolutely I mean when ready one and I'm still going to do that.

I did send Aled a text to say are you completely bonkers?

And I just thought oh my god listen to all that stuff and he did then they all did and I thought what an amazing experiment you know those presenters wanted Christmas off and put 35-mm voices on it, but what's interesting? Is he got thousands of people wanting to be on from across the country and a completely huge diverse range of presenters with different skill sets different experience from different parts of the sexiest bows and I've had messages from those people afterwards.

I've had I know people who tried to get the shower and I didn't get anything as people do know a lot of time with student radio and the amount of people who want to be on air and also been in production on a is not going away people really really want to be on the radio the problem is where we put them because the industry is shifted over the last year and a half 2 years would ever and I find it very difficult to find platform for some of these new time to grow I refer to that.

That moment where in a certain radio group clicked.

It's finger and half of the presenters vanished and it's really difficult to inspiring and to coach and to help presenters when you think you're brilliant.

You should be on this particular brand be fantastic on this, but there is no scope or place to put them as an agent.

I find that quite frustrating.

So you have many years in particularly commercial music radio.

Where are these people would have found a home in the past does the fact that there are fewer opportunities for the mean that commercial music radio isn't as good or does it mean that it's actually perversely got better and have you got more difficult for young Talent to get on the radio and the networks evening shows on the automation and all that kind of stuff.

There are still loads of young people who want to be on the radio that agree with that.

I think there's also loads of other things they want to do as well.

So there are perhaps fewer than they used to be where radio is one of the main sources has read a lot better as a result of these no, I don't think so, I think that you know having you know I like the fact that you could listen to New Talent that was on in can a strange times of the day and night and you got interesting this person's great remember the first time you hear from Chris Moyles or something like that and I think the first time I had a late night capital show at the weekend or something like that this guy is interested in you haven't so those opportunities have gone you when you when you get around Europe which you do consult for radio groups does your work lead to a certain kind of marginality.

Are they now rules for what makes a good job for a good presenter that means gradually they all begin sound the same I'm working with a hollow the different radio stations and one of the key things is to find new Talent and who are they where do they come from? Let's find people who don't sound like radio presenters is one of my key things so.

If I hear a table someone's do it live show and I have a listen to it and they sound like a radio presenter.

I'm kind of less inclined to say they're interesting so trying to find diverse voices different people who don't come from a traditional radio background or you know want to be like at the established radio DJ those of the people I'm interested in what works for you when your talent spotting.

What is the same as hearing voices that you don't always hear on the radio and that's one of the most frustrating things when you switch on the radio that sound the same and so I'm always looking for voices that sound and you can bring different types of energy and that's what I'm looking for cos we know we don't always get that on mainstream radio especially like people that sound like me you know northern hose from a different cultural background things that we could relate to so yeah, that's what I'm always looking for an experiment.

I listen to all of it cos obviously had a Christmas life to have butt.

Great presenters on there and what I thought they done very very well, what a complicated things to try and do to put 35 many people on there was some brilliant news specialist presenters, which is really exciting.

There's some great daytime people who live there don't get some scope to be able to be the big names that that Radio 1 currently have but what it did do was sounded fresh and it sounded without any disrespect it sounded very very polished student radio station because the voices were relevant and they are not saying any disrespect when you're ready 1 presenter, but there was some new things there is some new angles coming from the from those particular presenters, because they got different experience.

I have not come through that huge machine that the other Radio 1 presenters have the trick is as well that Radio 1 made.

It sound like they were Radio 1 presenters, but with a fresh angle as well.

So they can have been plugged into the vibe of the great job because I'm hearing people say well is no opportunities anymore on the radio so if we're going to get across what we want to talk about we've got to do it with online and

Do you hear that from your generation louder? Yeah? I hear that a lot I hear that from the people I work with you and I come across an awful.

Lot of Talent and it's really frustrating when you've got nowhere to direct them to tell them to Harlow shopping and other media platforms to get heard.

It's a shame that there aren't those opportunities in mainstream radio anymore well, you know there are limited so that big frustration because it's really hard to break through and because they're such big names and how do you compete with that when you're starting out and you know how do you get an experience really have those opportunities especially like that sounds like the BBC they get in and dated with applications, then I remember when I was starting out in radio.

I was like oh my god.

Am I ever going to get a job you who is just endless knocking at doors and then ended up going through the back door from getting somebody else to recognise my talent.

So it's really frustrating especially when you're a new Talent

But you know there are opportunities and if you're passionate then you know you will break those barriers.

I know I wouldn't have got my chance to be on the radio that wasn't for the Radio City evening, so you know because that was a show that was off-peak don't make mistakes there, but that doesn't really exist anymore that opportunity to do good old-fashioned ILR evening shows cause.

It's all kind of network.

I think there's two of them things for sale Bairstow and date on a really good job opening the doors to young presenters J Lawrence now.

Just doing the evenings he came from BBC local but also before that Dan noble who's doing the weekends for them.

There are some program controller to have flexibility within their schedule to be able to do this.

It's just under that's just two people and you know there's the hits and sorry hit and they've done something some of them puts new Talent epic celebrity get him up on them having to have a name and be famous before they're on closes the door, but the only thing is I would say the BBC local radio now.

Open ever has to have a spotlight put on it to find new Talent because whilst world is getting smaller those stations the BBC should have the opportunity to be able to put their voices and I know they have that new voices project and it's important that young people and new people not necessary.

Just young people get a voice on some BBC radio stations and Community Radio 2.

That's unfortunate because it has it does have an important partner in what we're doing out there ok, let's move on it's the February edition of the radio today at roundtable big news since we last Congress is the cutbacks at the BBC obviously people talk mostly about television, but it is going to have huge ramifications in Radio 5 Live losing people.

I think the big issue.

Is the whole question of consolidating reporter teams so that the individual programmes on Radio 4 and Newsbeat and other places just won't.

Really have their own singular voices in the BBC turn up with about 8 different people to one event and their front this one for a while and it's 10 5 live on the radio and I quite like it where you get the presenters to the maybe revoicing stuff with a slightly different Viber slide different angle and stuff, so is this an economy that could be applied there? I think they probably is but there's on BBC at the moment obviously to cut the 80 million quid or whatever you know a lot of people at the BBC as I do.

I've never known them as bad as it is at the moment.

I work.

There are a number of cutbacks.

I mean the story of the BBC really is about cuts isn't it has been for 2030 years, but there's a real Santa again.

I know and I think it's I don't know enough about BBC News to understand.

How many people work and how many people have therefore leaving although I did notice during the brexit bit and the general election.

I've never had so many different people.

Something from Brussels or somewhere and I'm thinking I know Chris Mason and Adam and cats and do it all.

I know but it's like but I do think morale is low and I think this cut thing has been hanging over them as you say for 4 years now and how they impact on the network radio and I think that's what produces main management worry about because they're working we had to make more content for different platforms unless a lot of people in the BBC who are a lot older than you are doing is saying well.

We doing it for moana and her friends, so are you impressed by what's happening at the BBC that they're putting all this resource into making shows for you.

Well.

I hope they put in those really into making shows for us and better shows but I also worry about where this extra money is going to go and is it going to create you know more platforms more?

There's more diversity or is it just going to go you know I just don't understand what the intentions of this is it's really sad that you know so many people are losing their job, but I agree that the BBC News needed to consolidate because it's a lot of duplication.

You know we all heard that right we hear that all the time when you go you know cos I work in a small stations and small production companies when I go somewhere in the BBC that they've got this humongous team and you know there's just me and I'm like so I do understand that as well.

So yeah, it is complex, but I just do hope that they use the money that they say to do a lot more just as we come on at the BBC of an ounce to a raft of new programs that are just going to be exclusively on BBC sound.

I just had a quick look at it as a whole load of interesting stuff in there a moron.

World and I think they're trying to shape it for the future as well, and I think it was James pronounce of the incumbent to move last fall's hardest so I think there's a sense that they got a move and yes somebody's got of being forced upon them, but it is an opportunity to reshape as well.

They got to win some friends though the BBC does seem to be at the moment.

They're not just friendless in government, but I'm meeting people now is changing her.

I've always loved really what way do you know the gender pay issues and so many other things just easy simple mistakes that are being made their losing that public a SIM in a great time to announce the licence fee increases when I travel around a lot and the BBC is still held up there as a triple A rated standard of broadcasters and so even though I don't work for them.

I'm immensely proud of them and I think we will Rue the day if we start to can a chip away and the whole discussion around the licence fee.

Very very dangerous, but what's in the licence fee for you mean and why would you pay in fact do you pay this love and hate relationship with the BBC I do love producing content for the BBC which I do and it's of the most stunning and growing up as a kid.

It was a dream to work at the BBC but there are times where they do let us down mainly for me is the diversity thing I think that is the biggest and like BBC News the other day did a massive blender with Kobe Bryant you know that where you just like.

Oh my god.

What are you doing? You know you need to do better you're a licence for you have responsibilities.

Just tell everybody didn't see it.

What happened with the Kobe Bryant as they use LeBron James's clip instead of Kobe Bryant when you know the guy was wearing a shirt which clearly said James

Yes, yes, which is a massive blender and you know it's just an innocent mistake but for a lot of people in this country and you know for people like me it was quite it was quite painful to see you expect better from the BBC and if it had been you know somebody else of advisor diversity would have recognised that so that's why it's so important to have a German based producers from all kinds of background.

So they can spot these mistakes and no the ramifications of these things because we expected to get it right all the time and then when they don't it's a big thing you know so it's a compliment them for getting it right most of time but I agree it was it was a bit of a 4-part let's pause for a commercial the radiated a program with broadcast bionics creators of The Bionic studio listening watching reacting to and learning from every spoken word Kolo sweet and SMS

The bionic studio transforms everything about radio except the way you make it it's the February timetable nominees here Nick Goodman is here and Chris North is here that you spend as I said a lot of time being carbon neutral.

Can I say that I spent a lot of trees that I hope you do but most of the time you're whizzing around the skies going to advise people you were just talking about how the BBC is still held in high regard.

What do they think of British radio broadly speaking in a monster calls our friends and colleagues broadly speaking I think it's beautiful very favourably the BBC has a lot to do with that.

It does a lot of things very well and it's big and shiny and it's out about them so radio conferences usually a good representative from the BBC talking about something innovative or and you.

Idea and you'll find a lot of radio stations across Europe look to the BBC at what they're doing ok.

That's interesting and you see various different invitations and versions of those things popping up your on the committee on youth radiodays Europe I am usually are yes, just give it a plug well.

We're going to be in Lisbon at the end of March there's a fantastic line up of Liverpool from the UK we got anything else going to be doing Aquino which is great.

So he's coming along and talking about the Vision that BBC Radio Devon BBC audio Lorna Clark and going to be doing a session.

We want to talk about the future of music radio booking is yeah, I got Lorna and also I can exclusively reveal we've got Rebecca Franks as well the new contender it from kiss on that same session as well, so we're going to try and unpack the future of music radio music formats the relationship with the record industry, although.

I'm sure you've got a lot of people from global as well.

We've been trying.

A few representatives from there and not quite plain ball as yet, but we continue to wear the phone calls and one day.

I will at 16 at getting someone over Christine go to these conferences have never been you should come along.

What's what you waiting for me.

I've never been because I'm still as an agent.

What do I get out of it apart from seeing you all ok? Well, you get to engage new people and spot of the finding new Talent in Europe I got you put them on here.

Let me let me suggest as an agent.

It would be great for you to understand the future direction of the radio and audio industry where the trend where it's going and how that will impact on your business.

I'm afraid of you there as they say on the road today Friday why would just mentioning today does anybody listen to the Today programme in the morning? I do I have noticed what you will have noticed of course that there are no government ministers on it anymore, though.

Better I rather like not having Chris Grayling whining all about the stuff.

It is nice to hear all the time because you know that it's like that first sweep of it and you think God I've been some sort of Groundhog Day but then you realise it's the content isn't it? But they need because brexit sort of I think it's quite refreshing actually.

I think they struggled during the last three years with that program because it's a broken record and I think people were switching off because of it.

There was none of that debate as long as it doesn't mean more vox pops favour of fewer government more packages and see what you think.

I'm the same.

I just found that program to be quite repetitive and quite dull give me a new voice.

Give me a new perspective.

Show me something else so yeah, I struggled with it.

There's a long read in the Guardian today as we record this.

About Magic FM as it used to be called Magic radio and one of the points.

It makes is that perhaps that kind of easy listening format is more attractive than it used to be a lot of talk radios less attractive because we don't want all the wind bags and repetition.

Would you make of it? It's an oasis of calm in a deeply destructive and negative world.

It's kind of like all around the world continue to do that and that blend of old nostalgia nostalgia.

Never goes out of fashion and the best of the new it so it's a winning Formula and they deliver it very well.

What do you make of the I was listening to magic at the musicals this morning which has literally in half hours listening it played top Hat by Fred Astaire and then it played.

Mustang Sally that single I think it's clearly aimed at people who are into musicals and if everything goes from musical is on that radio station, so you get the idea you get the extreme variety of that and there's a place for that.

I'm sure they done the the research of the numbers, but I really enjoyed the solvent funny enough.

I had a diary not so long ago believe it or not.

They knocked on conflict of interest is actually a true story ever told me that they seem somebody so they knocked on my door and said would you like to do some research on radio listing come in you come to the right place my friend and anyway magic soul got a bunch of ticks on that I enjoy the mix of music on.

That's a good good.

What does all this stuff me much? Do you mean all the different magic the different absolute you know what these new stations.

Yes, they do I listen to my dick as well.

It's likely he said it's a comfort blanket.

It's some it's not.

It's music in stations your parents listen to when you were younger because it was an offensive and yeah, I just text you back.

I listen to all the time and I really do enjoy it and they probably wouldn't it was for you.

They wouldn't and the fact that stormzy said that he listens to what people think that people are and that stereotype.

We do love old music we love all kinds of things and so yeah, I'm really glad that stormzy said that and I hope one of his tracks gets on them and magic at the musicals is I think a good thing because you don't have Elaine Paige laughing on that's always think I think that's probably not represented by North mediapad.

I'm guessing let's take another message and then we'll come back and find out what you have been listening to thank you Trevor yes, I'm here with a script reads to tell you all about the fantastic work that clean.

It's the February round table and we got Muna Ahmed Nick Goodwin and Chris all hit with a find out what they've

Do two things either radio show or a podcast let's go to lick first the podcast and it's the Bob lefsetz podcast Bob lefsetz music industry critic and analysts he has a the left sets letter which is a kind of email that he sends out with lots of comment on music industry stuff streaming tech podcast and it's with hearts now.

So they can have snapped it up and recent people on it Giles Martin at Moby Diane Warren and people want to play please a bit from a in-depth interview with Pete Tong and it's an absolutely fascinating interview not only to get big Tom's life story, but Bob is really good at asking questions.

He's the king of the blank question and that you can hear of you it I got remarried my second wife used to live in La I'm so she was wanted to try American Brazilian but she was in.

Play when I met her and and then got deeper into this wme relationship and the centre we at least back.

Then was Los Angeles and I thought you know with Em blowing up in America and make the most of the opportunity now is the time so it was 2013 we won't be around it.

I told my mum I was coming for a year.

How many kids do you have? I got four and two-step kids are ok? And how many with the first wife family and second wife only two ways to ok, so the first three kids and ok, so the first three kids in the value of one together again two-step kids you so what you have you had your first kid in 1990.

What are your kids up to their early music actually amazingly.

I never really push them into it.

I done it by their own designs and my eldest Joe goes by the name of Joe hertz as an artist didn't didn't take my name.

So I can't think why does everybody get along.

Thanks for bringing that in and thanks for choosing the clip in advance for your first choice and it is called have you heard George's podcast Joyce the poet? I pick This podcast cos I think it's absolutely brilliant and it's broken all the mould of podcast podcast the produce is produced by benbrook, and it's beautifully made it take it's fantastic storytelling and it's about identity and you know reflecting the Communities that we come from and the battles that we have you know being black British all the things that are going on around the world and it's I find it absolutely inspiring and we do not work with George so I really do like that.

Good example.

I think of somebody who is now considered to be at somebody would book for a mainstream radio show who are year ago wouldn't have had a look in and that's something that podcasting is yes, it is and he's engaging with audiences that podcasts generally not been able to reach and many of radio stations haven't been able to reach and I love the fact that you know it's now on the sound as well.

So George appeals to a great deal of young people and is giving them a voice as well.

Which is one of the reasons why I love the podcast expected to tell our young people after they feel they lack choices so throughout This podcast have offered different ways of presenting black voices in episode 10 of the romance thing to show intimacy on a grown man thing because the depiction of relationships in our music can sometimes be a bit cartoonish.

There's a lot of focus on sex and melodrama never just a young Barack and Michelle Obama alright about relationships March but when I do I'm the worst offender is always disappointment or a burst of temper but that does not fully reflect my own experience and it definitely doesn't reflect my works agenda.

Also includes glitter fantasy because I want young Writers to think expansively when I was 15 years old writing bars.

It never occurred to me to talk about flying cars.

I learn from the oldest who focus on certain aspects of this life of ours, but it does get repetitive and it's always a bit self-absorbed and negative would you could say about this podcast to be so yeah, I guess it's all relative.

There's George the Poet Christmas can I just ask a question because the world of podcasting is it?

Elusive to me just purely because I think I may be a snob and late to the game.

Where do you find all your stuff? Do you people like Netflix when people tell you the same thing out there and that's been going to sleep because I don't know how to find the podcast I usually know producers have made it and stuff like I think if you listen to your podcast via an Apple or Google or even BBC sounds you put it on and it turns into one of those recommendations things just like Amazon like that you like this.

I think that's what's happening to me now.

See you later Dr I really am at North conference before Christmas and it was brilliant conference.

I've never been to anything like that before and I think it's because I went in there thinking of God what's all this about and I should have described by the end of this is not going to others really sort of dodgy clubs that you didn't think you should go into be quite enjoy it by the end of it.

What podcasting was and what the talent scope was in considering? I made a podcast back in the day my brother years ago to find out that there's all this community at the time to people.

I just think maybe that's what the answer to where somebody is platform some people to go search my neighbours.

He coming to be honest.

I don't want to recommend.

It was recommended by a friend and it's really funny.

It's called it with Joe Wilkinson David Earl and Poppy hillstead, basically.

They read out unsubstantiated Rumours by listeners, basically and silly stories that they remembered from school or that they never near town and they read them out and it's very rude and it's sort of sums up my sense of humour and it's very funny a few months after that then started to comment on loud music coming from Lens flat sometimes all hours and allowed woman's voice with lens shouting back out.

Increasingly concerned when she walked past lens kitchen window one afternoon and good hearing shouting you've been a very naughty Widow and see what you look like a young woman dressed in nothing, but a black coat type chair with Leinster Dover her gyrating ahora a monk's 30 on empty gin bottles they found Len passed out along with a female mannequin dressed in fishnet stockings wrapped in a large black hooded the bathroom along with the photo of the vents.

Model Amanda lamb to its face the broadcaster bit then it's the seed I drop my daughter off somewhere on a Saturday morning and I'm in the car and I'm clicking on my DAB radio in the car and I come across a radio station.

I think this is strange because this is sounds like a pirate radio stations on DAB this is because I don't know we have parrots on the station is centreforce 88.3 and it started off as a pirate radio station in 1989.

I was on for about a year was about the time when the rape scene was exploding all around London and the M25 from here also disappeared from while it came back in 2017 on the London to Multiplex and it still sounds like a pirate radio station the show is all the pineapple music.

And is presented by chap called Master Magri I believe that's not his real name and it's incredible.

It's a retro music show like you've never heard before and it mixes music from New Order to Billy gryffindor Phyllis Hyman Gary Byrd and Jamiroquai and the next shares and Simple Minds and it's all in the mix who plays 12 inches he talks all over the records.

It's amazing and it's so unpolished.

It's really loving any chance of Fun Boy Three Bananarama I don't think I've got no money today.

Breakfast at 6 a.m.

Unpolished but brilliant the backstory as well.

I went to an evening with IRA Glass from this American Life who is one of my heroes and he played a clip from This podcast as I'm going to play and I was like oh my god.

This is amazing you pick that all the faults and how they could do things but then when I listen to this is great.

It's called the reveal podcast and it's presented by I'll let them and it's a home for investigative journalism and they cover from around America and they getting really in-depth stories and they turn you know everyday topics.

I will the me too campaign was going on they span it on.

For that wouldn't have a voice so they did a piece about immigrant women who are being sexually assaulted on night shifts and how these stories were being told and how these women are still part of the meat and how this has been going on for ages and then they also do funny things like you know art galleries that are selling fake art like millions of pounds and people not knowing so I absolutely love it.

It's in think stories that are sold really well, and they don't use any fancy tricks.

It's quite on Polish sometimes but the stories are always absolutely incredible the state is threat to prosecute you for having a document that States sent you in the first place.

How did you feel when you read that and I'm angry I was angry when I got this.

I think this is counter service counter to the principles of Free Press handstand.

Especially when you understand what these records actually are the records are.

Current former inspiring police officers in California Who been convicted of breaking the law courts are supposed to enforce their nearly 12000 names next to a crime from disorderly contact sexual assault to murder on here and here is someone who has been convicted of a crime and court records are public does open is it because these police officers it is I don't know I don't know it seems suspicious.

That's the reveal podcast Christmas reveal your final choice if you've had some problems with my tummy is really I've just been honest so I listen to lots of radio and last week Steve Lamacq who is one of the presenters social say best interest.

Venue week and they went on to the few times a few years running but this year they decided to go in the tour bus the whole production team and they have the Little Bus and they went to five locations, Newcastle Sheffield Cardiff extra Brixton and I just thought I'd pick it up because actually I know it's not the BBC should be doing the 76 music should be doing is supporting independent and I know they have done for several years was really interesting that the program was that it was not just the 6 Music Steve Lamacq program.

It was connecting to different parts of the UK and the community is within it music Communities obviously the venues and sells the artist has been there and the clip I'm a picked out is from Thursdays which was the one in Exeter the Cavern and Frank Turner did a set for them on the bus.

Lol so I'll see you then in the cabin in the evening and I just thought it was one of those fascinating things.

Where are we in the radio industry do tend to some time to think.

What about London it was fascinating to hear some voices from journalists in the local area and musicians and stuffed squash.

Just gone 6 Music and then 6 Music going to them supposed to be on the bus coming to bring the artist back to where they grew up or two venues which were important to them on the way up Frank close the Cavern in Exeter tonight your first visit to the Cavern would have been with your million-dollar 2002.

I found a piece which said they played to a room of Marilyn Manson fans.

Who did the room as soon as they took the stage.

I got booked for and we drove all the way down from London and 100 people in the club.

That's pretty good for us, but then but they haven't got two sides to it, then the bar side and the Dancefloor side and we set up and we only band ever DJs and I just really remember them playing the beautiful people which was the surefire metal club hit at the time and then that stopped and we went into our weird Angela and at the time not especially well rehearsed noise call thing that we did and everyone has their own and electrons on 6 Music in Exeter thanks them to moon armoured from prison radio to Nick Goodman to Chris North thanks to gilfry Studios for having us into Johnson Iain Dale from LBC who wrote an article in which he picked some of his favourite podcasts and one of them was this isn't that great and

We'd love to have you on it but of course he works for a radio station that won't tell him to come round table and will have another one in March if you're on the launch sequence of a large radio station the chances.
