Music Radio - a big night for Radio Academy North East

I'm pleased to say the next evening event for the Radio Academy here in north-east England is coming together very well. It is going to be a very special night not to be missed.

John Simons, Group Programme Director (Real & Smooth Limited) will be hosting an evening of lively debate about what many consider to be the most important element of a radio station - music. How important is music to the radio station of the future? Given the number of other platforms for music promotion, how important is radio to the music business today?

Joining John on the panel will be Mark Findlay, Group Head of Live Music (Global Radio), Tony Myers, Regional Promotions (Polydor Records) and Jeff Smith, Head of Music (BBC Radio 2 and 6 Music). There will be plenty of time for questions and answers and, of course, plenty of time to meet people in the bar.

It's at a great venue: Newcastle College - Space Bar, Rye Hill Campus, Scotswood Rd, Newcastle upon Tyne NE4 7SA on Thursday 12th September at 6pm for 7pm start.

Find out more at:   You can register there. Entrance is free for Radio Academy members.  If you are not a member - why not?  (If you turn up on the night just tell us you want to join for free entry). 

 Please encourage friends and colleagues to come along. I really think it will be a great night.
