Plante spent 15 years at KOSI and previously worked in the market at “Mix 100.3” KIMN and “Alice 105.9” KALC.

    From Radio Insight: What would it sound like if CHR really knew how to respond to streaming? Would it be the thing that repatriates young adult listening? Or just proves that Top 40 radio can’t be Spotify (and perhaps shouldn’t)? Would it pull the format out of the doldrums? Or plunge it further into the extremes? (Or is that ex-streams?) Trying to make sense of streaming stories now is like the early ‘90s when the advent of SoundScan sales information helped flag dozens of songs that wouldn’t have otherwise been on the radar. In that era when CHR nearly flatlined, most PDs threw up their hands, rather than try to pick and choose. Top 40 was correct not to play Ice Cube, “Wicked,” which had a good first week of sales in early 1993. But they didn’t play the real hits on the album, including “It Was A Good Day,” when they surfaced either. Mark St. John’s Zapoleon Media Strategies colleague Guy Zapoleon is the programmer associated with the cycles theory—the doldrums and extremes and usually-too-short periods of CHR mass-appeal that those downturns bookend. Programmers still cheerfully try to fit CHR’s travails to the cycles theory, although it’s more complicated now. A lot of the songs I don’t like at CHR fit both the doldrums (because they’re slow and boring) and the extremes (because they’re aggressive). Now, St. John and syndication veteran Ed Mann’s MannGroup Radio are promoting a format called Right Now Music Radio. RNMR promises to play “exactly what the target demo is listening to on multiple digital platforms. They are the hits, not defined by anyone but the listeners.” (One sweeper declares “it’s not our playlist, it’s yours.”) As heard this week, RNMR was primarily current; (I heard three recurrrents over the course of an hour and no gold). It played pop, R&B, and at least one Country crossover, but it did not sound extreme or unrecognizable as Mainstream CHR. If you have issues with today’s brooding, atmospheric CHR music, a format centered on streaming hits is not going to solve that, but it certainly played as fresher and more enjoyable than a lot of large-market CHRs that are both slow and old at this moment. (The just released Imagine Dragons song was in the hour I heard, for example.) Here’s the demo stream as heard July 17, just after 9 p.m. ET: Khalid & Normani, “Love Lies” Zedd & Maren Morris, “The Middle” Ella Mai, “Boo’d Up” Taylor Swift, “Delicate” Post Malone, “Rockstar” Brett Young, “Mercy” Drake, “In My Feelings” Calvin Harris f/Dua Lipa, “One Kiss” The Carters, “Apes**t” Bebe Rexha f/Florida-Georgia Line, “Meant to Be” Imagine Dragons, “Natural” Ariana Grande, “No Tears Left To Cry” Childish Gambino, “This Is America” Maroon 5, “Wait” Cardi B, “I Like It” G-Eazy f/Yo Gotti & YBN Nahmir, “1942” Foster The People, “Sit Next To Me” The post First Listen: Right Now Music Radio appeared first on RadioInsight. more

    From Radio Insight: I don’t know if today’s 15-year-old music geek needs a station like 97.9 WKIC Hazard KY. That would imply they were listening to the radio and waiting around to hear songs not normally heard on the radio. My options for that in 1978 were hanging out at the record stores that let you audition singles or hoping that a radio friend would let me go through their pile of junk 45s. Would a “Tomorrow’s Hits” playlist somewhere have avoided all that? In the absence of other options, stations like WKIC were my gold standard for daytime listening, until nighttime DX became available. They were the suburban or small-town stations, audible from Washington, D.C., that not only played new music, but did not necessarily weed songs from the gold library once they were established as something other than consensus hits. Often, these stations were full-service ACs, at that time the stations least tethered to the charts. I became aware of WKIC through RadioInsight’s Lance Venta, who tuned in because they were recently sold (for a dollar and from the owner to his son). Musically, they’re CHR. Presentationally, they’re full-service AC, and they have the 25-minute national and local news package at Noon to prove it. There was also a produced vignette about the childhood of a local business leader and you were meant to guess, Paul Harvey style, who that person was. If you go through the music log on WKIC’s site, you’ll see Maroon 5, “This Summer’s Gonna Hurt”; the Wanted, “I Found You”; Vicci Martinez, “Come Along”; Icona Pop, “All Night”; Mat Kearney’s “Kings And Queens.” They are the station still playing “No Excuses” by Meghan Trainor and “Ahead of Myself” by X-Ambassadors. It’s always dangerous to write about stations that don’t “play the hits,” or at least the hits as decided by large-market iHeart CHRs. Let me make it clear that there’s no sneering here. At this moment when the hits aren’t great, and few CHRs are scoring big wins by playing them, playing the hits is sort of overrated. I still want to hear Alice Merton, “No Roots,” which I like more than most of the songs that did make it to power. Same with “No Excuses” and “Ahead Of Myself,” actually. Here’s WKIC just after 11 a.m. on July 10. There are stretches here that aren’t unusual at all, and some that definitely are: Major Lazer, “Powerful” Rozzi, “Never Over You” AJR, “Sober Up” Dua Lipa, “IDGAF” Maroon 5 & Christina Aguilera, “Moves Like Jagger” Ed Sheeran, “Perfect” Janelle Monae, “Make Me Feel” Kesha, “C’mon” Shawn Mendes, “In My Blood” Twenty One Pilots, “Stressed Out” Justin Timberlake, “TKO” Rihanna, “Umbrella” Sam Smith, “Too Good At Goodbyes” Taylor Swift, “Delicate” Alice Merton, “No Roots” The post Fresh Listen: WKIC Hazard KY appeared first on RadioInsight. more
