The only things I love better than Sweet Tarts at Halloween, are the Rocky Horror Picture Show at the Tivoli here in St. Louis and Halloween music.  From Michael Jackson’s Thriller to the Eagles’ Witchy Woman, the[…]

9/11…Never Forget! And Other News

Rosalind, here.  Tomorrow is the 16th anniversary of the attack on the Twin Towers in New York City. September 11, 2001 is a day that will probably be forever etched in the minds of every citizen in the United States of America. In this time when our country seems to be more divided than ever, please remember the attacks left over 2,000 people dead and nearly 6,000 others injured.  The people who died that day, or were injured, were people of all gender, ethnicity, from different economic backgrounds, and represented the fabric of America.

Are We Sabotaging Our Listener Diversity?

Rosalind, here. Diversity and inclusion are important elements of the ReedRADIO.com business model. One of the most important decisions my brother, Keith, and I had to make when starting ReedRADIO.com was deciding what the station’s format was going to be.  However, choosing a format is not that easy.  Radio formats are used to design playlists that will attract the right audience, which can be translated into advertising or sponsorship revenue. “Every radio station has its own personality, through the music it plays, its on-air talent and even its jingles. But most stations fall under specific radio format categories that are used to[…]
