The Return of Hamish & Andy. They’re Back but What Does it Mean?

Hamish & Andy are returning to Southern Cross Austereo stations 2day, Fox, hit92.9, hit107, hit105 and the regionals this week. In the metro markets that means there’s now a three way ratings battle in drive with Nova’s Kate, Tim and Marty and ARN’s Hughsey and Kate.

Beats 1. How does it measure up? The Verdict! What does it mean for radio?

Apple have finally launched Beats 1, the first worldwide radio station. To hear it you need to get the new Apple Music App included in iOS 8.4. Beats 1 is a component of Apple Music, Apple’s first on demand, subscription based music service for which they charge $11.99 a month (after a 3 month trial), however after the free trial Beats 1 can still be accessed free.

Unlike music streamers such as Pandora, Spotify and Rdio, Beats 1 is much closer to what we know as ‘traditional’ radio.

It’s cleverly positioned as ‘Always on’. So does it live up to the hype?
