Christian Radio

This blog has been established to talk about Christian Radio (the industry) and to encourage those who are working in the industry. I would like to talk about news, music, programs and whatever else comes up. My goal is to get listeners and the professionals to talk about the issues to help make the ministry even better and stronger. Tell all you know about this blog.

Observations from someone listening

1. I've really been enjoying Moody Broadcasting's Prime Time America. A good mix of news, information, etc.
2. Sean Hanity is sounding a lot like Dr. James Dobson these days.
3. Some Christian radio stations sound like they're still in the 1980's.
4. Some Christian music stations don't sound much different than secular stations, why is that?
5. I've been asked by a number of people why I'm not doing local news any more. I've told them I am doing local news. :)
6. Could a Christian radio talk format work today?
7. Radio is still fun and it's not as complicated as it used to be.

That's it. I'll write more of these 'observations' later.

It's surprising to me that anything would get less complicated these days. In what way is it less complicated?

The technology has made producing so much easier. We used to have to edit everything with a razor-blade. On air guy never have to cue up a record or tape...it's all in a computer at the push of a button. I suppose the tech part of it is more complicated, but from the announcer/producer stand point...not to difficult.

Not sure where you're going with that. My take? They sucked for far too long and barely ministered to more than a handful of the most devoted Christians. They finally realized it and are getting serious about broadcasting with a quality level that glorifies God. Unfortunately, in the process, some lose site of the "why" and the God factor becomes secondary.
