A different strategy on the of use Power Intros

By Ivo Boudewijns, Executive Producer, Sticky FX | StickyFX.com and Voice Actor voiceoverstem.nl

Almost every radio station has them; Power Intros. A great way to brand the music of your station! But almost every radio station does it in the exact same way. Why? “Because everybody else is doing it this way. So I guess that’s what you’re supposed to do.” Doesn’t sound like a well thought out strategy, does it?

For a CHR-format it is obvious that you create Power Intros from the top current songs on your playlist because those are the most important songs for your audience. But for stations with a Greatest Hits, AC or Hot AC-format those current hits are certainly a bit less important and less relevant to have Power Intros from. So why copy the strategy of your CHR-competitor?

In The Netherlands there’s a Hot AC-station called DMG Radio that started doing Power Intros in different way. They deliberately chose not to have Power Intros from the current songs they play but from the songs that define the station’s sound on the older end of the library. Their Power Intros are featuring the core 80’s songs as they are an important part of their music brand. Also this way they stand out from the rest because they don’t (over)use the A-rotation songs that every competitor is using in their Power Intro’s.

An original take on how Power Intro’s can reinforce your station’s music brand.

Other news in the audio industry. After paying out a total of $ 343 million for Gimlet Media’s podcast production services and Anchor’s distribution services, Spotify decided to explore a new territory beyond music, sports.

Its founder Daniel Ek is in fact convinced that over 20% of the content listened to on the platform in the coming years will not concern music, so much so that the audio streaming platform has opened a position of Sport Lead to Spotify Studios to manage development and production premium audio series.

Spotify already offers a series of services for those who practice sports, from playlists to the presence of clubs – in Italy the Turin Football Club – which thus involve the fans in the life of the players, but the vertical offer is a completely new project and that could foreshadow the expansion of contents also in other areas such as news and infotainment.

Swift is that rarest of pop marvels: a genius who figured out how to totally traverse from nation to the standard. Different artists performed comparable moves – prominently, Dolly Parton and Willie Nelson both ended up plainly continuing standard symbols in view of their ’70s work – however Swift shed her nation roots like they were a moment skin; it was an essential shedding to uncover she was maybe the most honed, savviest populist artist/lyricist of her age, one who could tackle the Zeitgeist and turn it individual and, similarly as astonishingly, play out the switch. These aptitudes were apparent on her soonest hits, particularly the neo-tribute “Tim McGraw,” yet her second collection, 2008’s Fearless, exhibited a lyricist finding her identity and, all the while, finding a mass group of onlookers. Bold injury up having impressive legs not just in the U.S., where it piled on six platinum singles on the quality of the Top Ten hits

her ambitious sixth album almost didn’t get made. She took a break from music in 2016, tweeting that she “wasn’t made” for fame’s critical lens. We’re so glad she changed her mind. Tell Me U Love Me is a pop force—full of vocal muscle, stadium energy, and splendidly over-the-top production—that strives to embrace complexity. On power-pop anthems “Tell Me U Love Me” she longs for love but refuses to settle, exposing her weaknesses with otherworldly vocal strength. L0VAT0 may see herself as average, but take our word for it—she isn’t.
