Young Guns - The next Era of Radio production is here

The next Era of Radio production is here.

For many years I have been giving props and endeavouring to highlight talented people within the radio production fraternity.

In 2008 I set up a not-for-profit blog called RadioPromoTips.com, specifically to help connect and encourage more communication within the audio leadership group.

When life hands you lemon winners…

I have an incredible amount of respect for David Post. For many years, he has inspired me with his audio editing creativity.

Postie, is the Senior audio pro and breakfast producer for Jonesy & Amanda at WSFM.

He writes:

“Just a bit of fun. When life hands you lemon winners… make some Peter Sumner lemonade! Our voice guy is terrific :o)”

Some of the best radio ads you'll ever hear

In 2008, I made a decision that I would use my influence and connections within the industry to better connect and promote the creative and production people.

My hope was that I could help to showcase the amazing people and work we do in radio (particularly production) and ensure the growth and training process was available for the future.

In simple terms, I wanted to help people share their work and ideas as this is still one of the most beneficial ways we all learn and are inspired to excel.

Tim Lee on how he got to where he is today


Tim: I’m excited about this …

Daryl: Great, so let’s hear the Tim Lee radio history to present day story …

Tim: I started at 92.9 in Perth. They were running a competition called ‘search for the radio star’. I submitted a tape and it was to go on air with Orion Kelsal. And I got down from hundreds, to the final three. I lost that competition but because I entered and I became known to the staff I started working in the Street Team. I went from Street Team to promotions to show production to panelling to floater to weekends to doing their weekly OB at the Sunday Session. Then I got the night show in Perth which was local, and then they networked Lowie’s Hot 30 and I lost my job. Then I thought, ‘bugger it’, I’m gonna make it big over East.

The Power of Sound (pt 1)

Thousands of creative promos, sweepers and commercials are made every week in Australian radio production studios.

As much as it’s fantastic to check out the latest online breakfast team video, or trending Facebook post, it’s important to acknowledge that radio is an ‘audio’ business. What we put up the ‘stick’ is primarily what makes us money.
