RTÉ Radio 1’s 2021 Audio Imaging from ReelWorld: Real Pride and Joy

Ireland’s most listened to radio station, RTÉ Radio 1, has updated its brand sound with custom music from ReelWorld, performed by the RTÉ Concert Orchestra.

The national broadcaster set out to modernize the audio image of the station, with a focus on its continuity themes and top of hour sequence, united by a new sonic logo.

15 new compositions make up the package which combines contemporary and traditional music styles, with an authentic sense of the station’s character running throughout. The themes span genres including folk, pop, Americana, and traditional Irish.

RTÉ Radio 1 Deputy Editor, Penny Hart, said: “What a truly wonderful experience it has been, working on this collaborative project to align the radio station’s content offering and tone of voice through music. We’re so proud of our identity and to hear it shine through these beautiful compositions is a joy.”

Following a competitive tender process, RTÉ selected ReelWorld, based in MediaCityUK, to work closely with the broadcaster’s staff on this unique project.

The RTÉ Concert Orchestra recorded the themes at RTÉ Radio Centre’s Studio 1 under COVID guidelines, in separate sections and across multiple sessions with remote direction via video link between conductor Gavin Murphy and the ReelWorld team. Alongside the orchestra’s core sections of strings, woodwind, brass, and percussion, its members also played traditional instruments including the fiddle, tin whistle, Irish flute and concertina.

Anthony Gay, Managing Director of ReelWorld added: “This is ReelWorld’s third recent experience working with the orchestras of national broadcasters, and we are privileged to support RTÉ with their new sound. We’re thrilled with the results and it’s wonderful to hear the project now on air.”

Creative Audio Manager for RTÉ, Shane Freeman said: “The passion of everybody working on this project is what has made it so special, resulting in something that will stand the test of time and carry the audio brand of the station into the future.”

ReelWorld continues to partner with some of Europe’s biggest broadcasters, including a 2021 update for Heart UK, the country’s most listened to commercial radio network, and the Netherlands’ most listened to radio station, NPO Radio 2. Recently they have also produced a new brand sound for the Bloomberg Television Network.

ReelWorld’s Reel2Media Uses Recall Power of ‘Jingles’ in new Amazon Alexa Skill

Sing My Number turns any phone number into a catchy, memorable song that kids can call on for help

Reel2Media, part of ReelWorld – global leader in radio station identification jingles and production services, has released a new Amazon Alexa Skill ‘Sing My Number’.

Reel2Media, which specializes in digital, on demand audio content, and sonic branding, explains that this new Alexa Skill enables people to create songs with billions of possible different versions.

The new skill creates a personalized song to help families remember important phone numbers, and can serve up one of over a billion different permutations within seconds.

The idea works just like the magic of jingles. The recall power is just simply unmatched.

Designed for parents with children either too young to own a phone, or who find themselves in an emergency situation without one, Sing My Number turns any phone number into a catchy, memorable song that kids can call on for help.

Talking about the inspiration behind the skill, Reel2Media co-founder Anthony Gay said: “It’s a parent’s worst nightmare when a child goes missing, however briefly, and it’s a nightmare that’s only made worse when they don’t have a phone. Today anyone can access hundreds of phone numbers with just a few taps of a screen but can you remember any of them? It’s all too easy to forget the importance of teaching essential numbers to our children should they need them in an emergency.”

Sing My Number is the second family focused skill from Reel2Media, following the successful launch of Yak Talk Back! in April 2020. Sing My Number is both a standalone skill and an extension to Yak Talk Back! as the Yak character hosts the experience.

Fellow co-founder Mike Thomas added: “As a parent, it’s reassuring to know my kids have a way to contact me in an emergency. Drawing on our decades of experience creating jingles for the world’s biggest radio stations, and combining those skills with technology, we’ve been able to create a unique skill that is both fun and has purpose.”

Currently available in both North America and the UK, Sing my Number can be accessed and enabled from the Alexa Skills Store now. Or simply say “Alexa, enable Sing My Number’ to get started.

ReelWorld Treats Australia Radio Listeners with Fresh, Fun Jingles for Hit Network

The new sound of 2DAYFM and SCA’s Hit Network in Australia is now on air!

“What an incredible journey this has been and I can’t thank the ReelWorld team enough for bringing our vision and sound to life. They absolutely nailed what we were striving for and I love every single item. Every time a new piece came through I was thrilled and amazed at how the team just ‘got’ what I wanted. ReelWorld provided us with the best possible sound we could have dreamt of and were so patient with us along the way. On top of all this we had ridiculously tight deadlines, which of course they met. The most impressive part was the enthusiastic approach from the ReelWorld team from day one. I’m so happy that all of Australia get to hear their incredible work and my deepest thanks to ReelWorld for the wonderful collaboration and world class audio mastery!” – Gemma Fordham, Head of Hit Network

Founded in a one-bedroom Seattle apartment by two friends in 1994, ReelWorld Productions turned the radio industry on its ear by creating a groundbreaking jingle package for WPGC-FM in Washington D.C. 

For the first time, production techniques and musicality were paired with the playlist of a station, creating a seamless transition between its branding and core artists. 

From that day forward radio jingles were no longer something that stopped the music cold while a barbershop quartet belted out schmaltzy call letters. Instead, they stood toe-to-toe with the hits of the day, keeping the on-air flow intact and listeners glued to their speakers. 

In the years that followed, ReelWorld continued to develop new radio jingles and radio imaging services, further redefining the idea of radio branding. 2011 saw the opening of ReelWorld’s European headquarters in London, which relocated to MediaCityUK in 2013, further expanding our global reach.

Today, ReelWorld proudly employs a worldwide team of seasoned producers and composers across our unique and innovative product divisions of radio jingles and radio production.

With dozens of products airing on thousands of stations across six continents, ReelWorld is the company stations trust to help them #makegreatradio. Start now at http://www.reelworld.com

Radio KissKiss

In other news, starting from 17 July 2020, the Radio Kiss Kiss summer Kiss Kiss Play Summer 2020 compilation is available for purchase, also on Amazon.it . The playlist includes some of the most successful national and international hits of summer 2020, such as Baby K and Chiara Ferragni, Boomdabash and Alessandra Amoroso, Aiello, Giusy & Elettra, Tiziano Ferro and Jovanotti, Fedez, Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande, Billie Eilish , The Weekend and many others.

Through this partnership, explains a note, Amazon and Radio Kiss Kiss join forces to give a
special return among the school desks to some lucky Italian students: part of the proceeds from the sale of the compilation on Amazon.it will in fact be donated to three schools located in the areas adjacent
to three Amazon sorting depots in Italy for the creation of Stem laboratories. By purchasing the Kiss Kiss Play Summer 2020 on the Amazon marketplace, customers will support the charity initiative and, with a symbolic gesture, will wish a good return to class in September to Italian students, who have had to start from the Covid-19 pandemic follow lessons remotely.

“As part of our commitment to supporting the communities where Amazon employees live and work, we are proud to partner with Radio Kiss Kiss for this special initiative in support of the digitization of Italian schools,” said Gabriele Sigismondi, Amazon CEO Logistics in Italy. “In this way we hope to wish all the students of the schools involved a happy return to class. In recent months, we have carried out several projects to offer innovative solutions to support teachers and students who have suddenly had to try their hand at the world of distance learning “.

Lucia Niespolo, president of the Board of Cn Media (Radio Kiss Kiss) commented: “We are happy that Amazon has readily accepted our invitation to this project linked to the purchase of our summer compilation, the Kiss Kiss Play Summer 2020. Radio Kiss Kiss like Amazon, it knows how important it is to invest in the training of young people and the digitalization of the Italian school. A school in step with the times, smart and digital, is a goal to be achieved in the shortest possible time, we project ourselves into the school of the future, for this reason, before the start of the school year, together with our Amazon friends we will deliver three Italian schools 3 Stem laboratories that will allow the teaching staff of the respective 3 schools to improve distance learning with their students.

The drivers of the delivery service providers, with the support of the Radio Kiss Kiss speakers, will soon leave for the three institutes located in three secret locations that will be revealed in the coming weeks. All updates on the project will be published in the next few days on the social channels of Amazon.it and Radio Kiss Kiss.

This initiative develops within a wider commitment undertaken by Amazon to support the communities in which its employees live and work, thanks to the activity of the Amazon territorial committees in the community. For example, during the health crisis Amazon has carried out numerous projects to support bodies, institutions and organizations on the front lines in the fight against Covid-19, such as the Civil Protection, the Italian Red Cross and the Food Bank of Lombardy. In addition, during the lockdown, Amazon organized free webinars related to Stem issues dedicated to teachers from all over Italy, to provide them with innovative tools to be used in distance learning.

Amazon’s commitment to training and the dissemination of technological knowledge also includes the ‘Amazon Innovation Award’ initiative: launched in 2016, the contest involves three of the most prestigious Italian universities, the Politecnico di Milano, the Politecnico di Torino and the University of Rome Tor Vergata, and invites students to propose innovative ideas to optimize Amazon’s logistics activities. Starting from last year, some European universities can also participate in the Amazon Innovation Awards.

Other radio related news. How Mexicans listen to radio.

In 2019, the radio received an investment of 7 thousand 434 million pesos from brands and companies.

Smartphones represent the third most used device to listen to the radio.

Although for many it seems incredible, radio is still a means of communication that can be considered valid, both for audiences and for brands and companies; as we reveal in the Annual Study of Investment in Media 2019, the radio still receives a considerable amount of resources, even more than what newspapers, cinemas, directories and internet receive, at least in the case of Mexico, the number reported in the study it indicates that 7 thousand 434 million pesos were destined to this medium. With that data, it is also possible to confirm that it is still possible to find millions of people who spend a good part of their time listening to the radio.

According to the Digital Audio Studio of the IAB Mexico , radio is among the main ways of consuming entertainment, although it is placed below the Internet and Television in that regard. However, the way in which the radio is consumed has changed considerably thanks to the arrival of new technologies and devices.

In the graph of this day, with data from the previously mentioned study, we highlight what are the devices currently used for radio consumption in the country.

Interestingly, the conventional device for listening to the radio is the device most used today for this activity, 22 percent of those consulted in the study highlight using it to listen to programs. The second position, by percentage of users, is the car stereo, however, the study highlights that it is mainly when they are in the car that people decide to listen to the radio programs.

Finally, according to the information, the third most used device is smartphones, consumers find in these devices a practical tool for radio consumption because the ease of use is clear and also allow mobility.

Since it is possible to observe how the radio has adapted to new platforms or devices, it is possible to understand that it is a format that still has a lot to offer for both audiences and brands.

Radio News: Elise Kvien becomes NRK Vestland’s new morning voice

Elise Kvien (23) has got a permanent job in NRK Vestland, and will direct the morning broadcasts on radio, in God Morgon Sogn and Fjordane.

  • It’s amazing. It’s very surreal in a way, because things have gone so fast. I feel very lucky, Kvien tells the Journalist.

She becomes a program manager with Stian Sjursen Takle.

  • No dream too big
    She comes from Vartdal in Ørsta, was a Norwegian Norwegian trainee in NRK’s ​​Nynorsk media center in 2018-2019, and had practice in P3 News at Tyholt after that. Now she works in a temporary agency in NRK News, for Dagsnytt and Always News at Marienlyst.
  • We as temporary agents go from contract to contract, and it’s hard not to know what the future brings all the time. That is why it is also very nice to get a permanent job, says Kvien, and admits that she is quite proud of the new job.
  • I’ve gained a lot in a short time, mainly because I’ve been burning for making radio all the time. No dream is too big! I am primarily proud of myself, but would not have done it without anyone who has supported me.

From April 1, she will be heard by listeners in the Sogn and Fjordane section of the new county Westland. In the long term, there will probably be more cooperation between the two former district offices.

Controlled the entire radio alone
Kvien appreciates that she got to be at the Nynorsk media center, which became an eye-opener for her in terms of language, but also a springboard into NRK.

She started with radio when she studied marketing and management at NTNU in Ålesund, where she had regular broadcast time in Radio Ålesund’s afternoon broadcast every Wednesday, in addition to substituting for morning and afternoon broadcasts on other days.

  • It has been worth my while to work in local radio. The local media is a springboard for journalists. One learns so much with so few resources, she says.

Three summers in a row, she controlled the entire radio alone. Then she started the day with morning broadcast, then she went out and was a reporter after a quick lunch, then it was back in the studio to make afternoon broadcast.

  • It was very, very long days and incredibly hectic. A big challenge, but also exciting.

Billie Eilish, Sam Smith in spotlight for Z100’s recent radio imaging

Billie Eilish, Sam Smith, Post Malone are in the spotlight for the recent highlight of Production Vault CHR for Z100 New York.

Check out the rest of the recent highlights from productionvault for other formats.

productionvault is the world’s most complete imaging toolkit. From sweeper and promo shells ready for your VO to playlist-current song intros, sound effects, listener clips and custom music beds, productionvault gives you the content you need to sound your best.

Heard in the recent highlight for Z100 are promos and imaging showcasing artists like Post Malone, Sam Smith and Billie Eilish, who is in the limelight these days for her unconventional pop image.

With a good safety margin we can say that we have already found our album of the year, which has a beautiful title, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go ? and is signed by the most amazing artist that America has given birth to in the last few years. Write down this name, because Billie Eilish seems to come from another planet, but now that it’s here between us it seems obvious to us that she intends to stay there for a while, since her music is making everyone fall in love, at any latitude. To tell who it is, this 17 year old grew up in Los Angeles (from, as she tells herself, “two parents who all say to be actors, but who, and I say with immense love towards them, are actually more actors missed, than most have done commercials; the people who follow me send me gifts that I don’t know where to put, because I grew up in a really modest environment “) we can leave by saying what it is not : not a breathtaking, super confident and highly sensual like our beloved Dua Lipa , it is not an Ariana Grande, a splendid talent without a doubt but already more canonical, and it is not a panic rapper like Cardi B, as much a blood thrown in its bars as it is coherent with the imaginary of the woman rapper, angry, provocative, eager for money and success, foul-mouthed and very, very funny. Here:

Billie Eilish is Billie Eilish because at the age of 17 she manages to clear everything, and to create new rules in the infinite show that is music. Like very few before her (Madonna, Bjork, Lady Gaga, Lana Del Rey) this teen ager is revolutionary. Why? Because his verses touch the abyss of depression and anxiety, of which he never made a secret of suffering, with sounds that can only be defined pop, maybe dark, but pop. According to Dave Grohl, the singer of the Foo Fighters, the same thing that happened in 1991 with Nirvana, his historical band, is happening with Eilish. He knows this because his daughters are obsessed with Eilish, as well as many other American teenagers but not only, given that his Instagram has almost 16 million followers.

Despite having a beautiful face, Eilish focuses on everything but his attractiveness: his videos are dark, sometimes disturbing, similar, so in span, certainly more to an imaginary from Marylin Manson rather than to those of colleagues like Taylor Swift or Miley Cyrus. And also her look, with her hair now gray, now blue and the oversize clothes that show a few centimeters of skin and place it, as well as her very winking attitude, make her an artist beyond any gender stereotype

As the New York Times wrote : his latest album “will probably consolidate his reputation as a unicorn of the music industry of the 21st century, which embodies all the hopes of online youth culture”. And so, let’s add, because if a girl is not rich, with Tourette’s syndrome (of which she has widely spoken on her social networks, after videos of her tics were included), who at 17 writes and composes from alone, flanked only by her 20-year-old brother Finneas, who does not feel the need to become the Lolita on duty to have followed, and above all, capable of giving us pieces, all but all incredible and all in a profoundly different way, like those of When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?well then there is great hope for future generations.
