iRadio celebrate with new Wisebuddah sounds
Reaching over 350,000 weekly listeners, iRadio is the leading CHR station in 15 Irish counties and this month the station launched a new Wisebuddah station sound to celebrate the award of their new 10-year broadcasting licence from the BAI (Broadcasting Authority of Ireland).
Their package, built around a brand-new sonic identity, is a mixture of custom iRadio IDs and re-sing IDs from Wisebuddah’s popular Fun Radio package. Wisebuddah also produced bespoke News and Sports compositions, along with toolkit elements for branding song intros and other station imaging.
Mark Cunning, CEO, iRadio, said: “We loved working with Wisebuddah. Their ability to understand our goals and ambitions… even to smile and nod at some of the crazier stuff was really important throughout this project. To sit in the studio, be part of the creative process and to hear and see the project come to life was fascinating.”
Paul Duffy, iRadio’s Head of Station Sound, said: “We wanted a package that stood out in a busy market and set the standard. If you want the best, you’ve got to work with the best. For us, this is where the fun starts. We have a new set of toys and we’ll use them to evolve and innovate our audio based around this package.”
Dom Scott, Wisbuddah’s Business Relations Manager, added: ”This is the first package we’ve produced for iRadio and we had a great time working on it with them! CEO Mark Cunning and Imaging Director Paul Duffy had a clear vision for a unified and cutting-edge audio brand and the result is a unique station sound which matches iRadio’s ambitious plans for the future.” Head to the Wisebuddah website to hear this package and many more (including work for BBC Radio 1 (UK), Radio 538 (Netherlands) and Fun Radio (France)) at www.wisebuddah.com.
