The radio conference that Matt Deegan and I put together was on Monday. Missed it? Here are just some of the sessions: watch @thisisnextradio for more, or subscribe to the YouTube channel. More next week probably.

  • Will Manning from Capital records a nice YouTube video about how his radio show is put together. Sounds like a lot of hard work.
  • Technology vs culture: it took 91 years after the invention of the car for the first out-of-town shopping centre in the UK. I like this stat, because it highlights why radio is still so popular – the inertia of our radio habit insulates it from technological change
  • The Radio Today Programme reports from Next Radio. A nice overview.
  • The Future of Radio – a British Library podcast, with marked lack of futurologists though I do get a namecheck
  • Inside the BBC’s Audiofactory Encoding Farm – my article for the Radio Magazine
