RADIO “Adjust Your Dial – Radio & Today’s Market”
Moderator: Billy Zoom (XM/Satellite)
If you said “radio” fifteen years ago, you were talking about one of two things: AM or FM. But today’s music lovers can tune into everything from locally broadcast shows, to webcast stations, to satellite radio… many of which offer specialty and niche programming to fit every musical taste. On this panel, experts from commercial, noncommercial, public and satellite radio will talk about how the medium is embracing change, and how musicians can tap into the new radio market.
