  • Streaming use drives Disney’s exit from broadcast radio (selling off 23 of 24 stations)

    Radio and Internet News ^ | August 14, 2014 | Brad Hill
    In what Bloomberg calls a “digital push,” Disney announced that it is closing 23 of its 24 terrestrial stations, laying off nearly 200 people in sales and operations. (See the intra-company memo from GM Phil Guerini below.) Disney is shifting its efforts and resources from terrestrial to the broadly-termed “digital” realm, which in this case means program distribution on SiriusXM and online streaming platforms. The company maintains a Radio Disney mobile app. The strategy shift represents what Disney calls “the habits of the consumers we serve.” Inside Radio reports that only 18% of Disney’s radio audience tune in via AM.FM...

    <p>As GWAR's annual GWAR B-Q carried on over the weekend, it was with a somber note of remembrance to band leader Oderus Urungus who died of a heroin overdose in March.</p> <p>Though friends and family of David Brockie (the man behind the gnarly thrash metal monster mask) laid him to rest on April 1 at a private April Fool's Day service, as Consequence of Sound reports, his alter ego had not yet received a send off. So, in a tribute true to form for the outlandish band and its fervent fans, the Oderus costume was laid out and lit aflame Friday on a small viking ship floating amid Hadads Lake at the Richmond, Va. event.</p>

It was from Rza, hip-hop icon from Wu Tang Clan, and he was talking about the game of chess. Hip-Hop and chess have been linked for years, thanks largely to an organization launched in part by Rza, called the Hip-Hop Chess Federation. The HHCF has been taking at-risk youth, and sitting then down at chessboards for years. The results have been amazing. And now HHCF, already...

    Robin Williams was suffering from the early stages of Parkinson’s disease, his widow revealed Thursday, days after the beloved actor and comedian was found dead of an apparent suicide. Susan Schneider said Williams’ “sobriety was intact” at the time of his death, and that he was struggling with “depression, anxiety as well as early stages of Parkinson’s disease, which he was not yet ready to share publicly.”

    Everyone loved the Oscar-winning actor in Aladdin, Good Morning Vietnam, Good Will Hunting, Awakenings, Mrs. Doubtfire and Dead Poets Society, but some other great roles have received far too little attention in the wake of his shocking death. 10. Deconstructing Harry (1997) Williams’ only Woody Allen film is essentially a series of sketches in which Allen works out his demons. Williams is in the film for only a few minutes but he makes them count in a brilliant bit part as Mel, a film actor whose life is such a blur that he has literally gone out of focus. 9....

    The initial shock of Robin Williams’ tragic death, from an apparent suicide, is giving way to reflections of his legacy and memory. Another question many people are asking is what happens next for his family. He was survived by his third wife, Susan Schneider, to whom he was married for three years, and three adult children from his prior two marriages, whose ages range from 25 to 31. There is a realistic fear that Williams’ death may have left them in financial distress. In an interview with Parade Magazine last year, Williams lamented how he had to change his lifestyle...

    Robin Williams resented having to work on films such as the second Mrs Doubtfire but felt compelled in order to keep money coming in, a close friend of the actor has told the Telegraph. Williams, who had been working on four projects when he was believed to have taken his own life this week, was said to have been dreading making more films as they "brought out his demons". He had committed to starring in sequels to the hugely successful Mrs Doubtfire and Night in the Museum, as well as comedy Merry Friggin’ Christmas, and the drama Boulevard. But according...

    Robin Williams, the famed comedian and actor, died on Monday at age 63. He had a remarkable career, and was one of the funniest people of all time. But beyond his career of making people laugh — one of my favorites being his role as Vietnam-era radio personality Adrian Cronauer — his response in 2007 to troops in Kuwait who basically turned their back on him is one worth remembering. Williams was there for a USO tour for the soldiers, most of whom were either headed to Iraq or supporting combat troops already there. In the middle of a bit,...

The video shoot for Like A Virgin would cement Madonna’s place as a bona fide star and help turn her into a global pop icon. But for several turbulent days on location in Venice, Italy, in 1984 it was, recalls Weisner, ‘like a fury had been unleashed’. ‘When I bitched back at her she...

    American audiences recently got their first taste of a new - and contagious - Brazilian street dancing style that has evolved from music born in the slums of Rio de Janeiro decades ago. For the creators of Passinho, dancing at New York's famed Lincoln Center on July 24th went beyond performing on a world-renowned stage. It was a vindication that a dance style associated in Brazil with criminals and gang activity is now seen as an art form that just happened to start in the favelas, or slums. “Eleven passinho dancers came here to do something that when we started...

The world’s indifference, he believed, made even the most neglected records precious: music that hadn’t been transferred to digital files would vanish forever unless someone bought his collection and preserved it. Mawhinney spent about two decades trying to find someone who agreed. He struck a deal for $28.5 million in the late 1990s with the Internet retailer CDNow, he says, but the sale of his collection fell...

    Internationally renowned Australian composer Peter Sculthorpe, whose work was shaped by his love of the Australian landscape, has died aged 85. The Launceston-born composer passed away at Wolper Jewish Hospital in Sydney after a long illness. Sculthorpe's best-known achievement was his capacity to bring to Australians a sense of their land and history in the music of one of their own. His many remarkable compositions were strongly influenced by Asian, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander music, and centred around his deep love for Australia and its landscape.

    ...You Really Got Me delivered something very different. It is taut but increasingly hysterical, hard driven and explosive, an out-and-out rocker. It is more riff than song. And what a riff. It consists of just two power chords, three strings of the guitar, sliding up and down over two frets, striking five times in three beats of the bar then restarting after the fourth beat. It has a feeling of being chopped off in its prime and constantly restarted, spluttering like a motorbike getting ready to race, a jerky, stop-start quality that creates an incredible sense of urgency. It was...

    As record labels repeat tired formulas and watch their business model collapse, they should turn on the television to see how another outmoded industry came back from the brink. Of all the lies told to musicians, here’s the biggest lie of them all: you have to give your talent away for free. Creative people in a wide range of fields keep hearing the ridiculous mantra that “content wants to be free.” The music industry is the worst offender. Many label execs tell artists—maybe the execs even believe it themselves—that musicians shouldn’t expect to generate income from their recordings. But no...
