James sends his weekly newsletter with this note:

I’m deep in pre-production for Next Radio, the radio conference that is next Monday, the 19th September. I genuinely enjoy the process of polishing presentations – tidying logos, normalising audio, mixing voiced announcements, and adding surprises for the day. I do hope you’re coming: it’s probably not too late to get tickets if you’ve not already done so.

James Cridland’s articles

  • Data, data everywhere – how much do we use? I bet there’s a ton of wasted data for radio stations
  • This week in The Radio Magazine, you’ll read a long and interesting (hopefully, I haven’t written it yet) piece about how the BBC encode their radio audio for online.
