When you think about it isn’t it a little strange that you have to get a woman’s permission before giving her extreme pleasure.
Why do sales people still call on the same clients over and over again even when some of them aren’t going to be very successful in the economy of the moment. Hell they’re not going to pay anyway.
You know your going to have a real bad year when the people who had no plans to ever pay you stop buying too.
Is submitting a rate to a time buyer really selling.
In Canada which has fewer stations per market than America, the Radio revenues go up by at least a million dollars when a brand new signal begins operations.
Sales people are almost a bigger mystery to me than women. Wait a minute most of them are women.
Jim Hilliard used to have a sign over his office door which read ” The Purpose Of This Office Is to Bring Good News To The Sales Department” going along with that theme he also had a rule that stated there was only one person who was allowed to see a new rating book before him and that was George Johns. His quote about it was … If anybody can find some good news in a rating book it’s George and I need good news from every single rating book to pass on to the sales department.
Etta James and Johnny Otis passed. Wow the early musical acts who got me so passionate about Music which later led me to Radio and a great shot at having a pretty good life are leaving the planet much too quickly. Very scary!
Speaking of leaving the planet I’m glad they so far are not taking me with them as I have too many new projects I’m working on to go just yet.
Being from Winnipeg it’s sure not too hard to like Florida this time of year. But then again, I still love California!
It’s a lot easier remembering what you told some one if what you told them was true.
Once again I ask … And the good thing about consolidation is ???
Wow KZST sure tore up another rating book in Santa Rosa didn’t they in fact they are #1 in 136 different demos and dayparts.
Radio like any business needs three types of people to make it successful … The Dreamer, The Business Man and The Son Of A Bitch. Some great leaders and visionaries like Henry Ford, Walt Disney and Steve Jobs were all three.
Besides professional athletes and musicians is there anyone else with a lot of tattoos that becomes very successful.
Do you remember how frightened you were back in the day to make certain moves because they looked very scary. Now you look back on all that and say to yourself I must have been some kind of a wimp cause none of that stuff is remotely frightening now.
Girl talk is … Why things are how they are. Guy talk is … Things are how they are.
Timing is everything. When the Beatles were first getting started they were a very loud rock band who performed in jeans and motorcycle jackets and occasionally would play with toilet seats around their necks. By the time we first saw them on the Ed Sullivan Show they were in suits and ties and sang a Broadway tune.
I just read somewhere that no man has ever been shot by a woman while he was doing the dishes.
Is this predictable or what! Jim Irsay is now mad at Peyton Manning for something he said this wouldn’t of course have anything to do with the fact Irsay is trying to get out of paying Manning the 28 million he owes him right.
I was reading the other day in one of the trades that only 17% of people listening to radio are listening to AM. I would argue the reason for that small number is because the product AM is currently suppling to America only appeals to 17%.
The only thing you never have to tell an air talent to do is … Stop using the word “New” when talking about the radio station.
What the hell happened to Mr. Business Man being afraid of his Customers and the Government.
Last week a hundred of us were affected by Duffy’s computers being hacked by some folks who went on a buying spree with my credit cards in Texas and Austria. My bank account was quickly overdrawn by a thousand dollars before they could cancel my cards so I went for a week with no money or credit. I had to beg my co-workers for gas money and food. Now I know first hand how the homeless feel.
