Bun B Joins a Hip-Hop Radio Station
Bun B is joining a hip-hop radio station. The UGK legend is set to take over the LL Cool J-founded Rock the Bells Radio station, which elevates timeless hip-hop culture.
Polunsky Prison’s radio station is a way for prisoners to connect with each other and feel part of a community. It also gives them an outlet to express their opinions on issues that they’re passionate about.
The origins of b radio station date back to the early days of scheduled broadcasting. One of the first, a Dutch service called PCGG, started experimentally in November 1919 and went on the air with a regular schedule in 1920. It was operated by a newspaper that wanted to hedge its bets in case the new medium proved competitive with newspapers.
Today, b radio station is a community radio station that targets the under-40s and operates a CHR format. It has studios in the Reading University Students’ Union and is licensed by Ofcom as Two Towns Radio (2tr fm). It relies on volunteers for everything from presenters to admin and production.
Radio formats are templates used to structure the overall content broadcast by radio stations. They allow stations to tailor their programming to specific musical tastes, interests or advertising demographics. In addition, they help stations maintain a consistent sound, and increase revenue by selling commercial advertisements based on their audience’s preferences.
The standardized list of form/genre terms and their provisions for application make it easy for catalogers and reference staff to access radio programs, especially when subject access is poor or lacking. The terms are entered in the 655 field of MARC catalog records and the form/genre field of non-MARC records. The code “MBRS” is placed in subfield |a to indicate that the terms are from this specialized list.
Some popular formats include Oldies, Jazz and Soft Rock music. Others are more popular with young listeners, such as Pop and Top 40. These formats feature the latest hits in popular music. The popularity of these genres has made them successful on streaming platforms. Moreover, digital audio broadcasting (DAB) offers higher spectral efficiency than analog systems. This allows stations to broadcast more programmes at lower bit rates, resulting in savings in the cost of transmitter sites and equipment.
Roles of the Radio Show Host
A radio show host, sometimes called a presenter, voiceover artist, or DJ, is responsible for creating and conducting a broadcast. Their main goal is to keep listeners engaged and entertained throughout the entire broadcast, which may be live or pre-recorded.
They use creativity to write their content and interact with callers. They must also be flexible in their work as they often have to deal with unforeseen circumstances, such as having to fill extra time or adjust their conversation style for a guest who has different interests.
They are also in charge of recording jingles and ad breaks, preparing music mixes or weather reports, and scheduling interviews with guests. Some radio hosts may also travel to attend events or do on-location broadcasting. Radio show hosts often also have their own personal social media accounts to communicate with fans and followers.
As a not-for-profit community radio station, B Radio relies on volunteers to get involved with the show from presenters through to administration and production. It’s a great way to learn new skills and add to your CV. As a bonus, it’s also an opportunity to meet new people.
Creating effective radio intros requires careful planning and preparation. Using sound effects can help to make the introductions more vivid. For example, the sound of a horse trotting on concrete can invoke a different picture in listeners’ minds than the sound of a ticking clock.
A controlled form/genre thesaurus helps to make cataloging more consistent and encourages specificity of description by providing standard terminology. The terms in this thesaurus are meant to encompass categories of material encountered at the Library of Congress and include general terms and those describing specific types of programs. This is not an exhaustive list and it is primarily intended to assist the researcher in finding appropriate records for indexing and retrieval.
