Over the years, I’ve become a big fan of internet radio stations. It’s a great way to discover new music, see what’s going on in music scenes in other parts of the country, and hear in-studio performances and interviews. One of the great things about technology is that it’s become possible to listen to local radio stations anywhere in the world, as long as you have a computer and stable internet connection. Below, I’ve compiled a list of seven of my favorite online radio stations. Hopefully, you find some great, new music!
radio advertising does not work. In fact, it is called spiking. What it does is it provides a massive amount of business for the advertiser but very small window of opportunity; thus, resulting less worthy returns. Sometimes, the cost of radio advertising exceeds profit and income from selling a house.
The legendary rocker has done it all from his music career to reality star and show host. With more than 25 albums sold, 15 top 40 hits and winning “Celebrity Apprentice: Season 3,” Michaels’ career continues to move after more than 20 years in the entertainment business. His current album “Custom Built” debuted at no. 1 on the hard rock and independent charts. His new VH1 show “Life as I Know It” premieres October 18.
Five artists — Morris Stoloff, Bill Parsons, Phil Phillips, The Jaynetts and The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown — managed to have a No. 2 charter but nothing else, while two made it to No, 3 and three to No. 4 as true one-hit wonders.
People that host internet radio Shows are always looking for interesting guests. You can find internet radio Shows by going to blogtalkradio (just type blogtalkradio in a search engine to find them). Listen to a few shows to find people talking about your topic. Then contact them and ask if they’d be interested in having you as a guest. Most of the times the hosts will be thrilled to have you on their show. Just remember to give a lot of content and only promote yourself when the host opens the floor to do so.
Through Eddie Cochran’s manager (who also became her manager), Sheeley began writing songs for the singer (and dating him, too). In early 1960, Cochran died in a car accident while on touring England. Sheeley and singer Gene Vincent, who were passengers, were seriously hurt but recovered from their injuries. After the accident, she returned to the U.S. and formed a songwriting partnership with DeShannon, producing the hits “Dum Dum” by Brenda Lee and “The Great Imposter” by The Fleetwoods, among others.
If this seems like a bulky operation, it is, but well worth it. There are other options that will cost a bit more, and entail less work on your part. Some services are as low as $25 per month per line, and will include automatic email reporting so all you need to do is open an email once a month to see the data, neatly arranged in a variety of custom formats to suit your individual needs. The bottom line is the need to know how well your ads are working. If your advertising budget is more than $500 a month, it is a must. More than $2,000 a month and it is critical. Not only can you see if an ad is working, but you can do split tests where you change the wording, or change the offer in the ad to see which gets a better response. Getting the most from your money is the smart thing to do!
