Wisebuddah Deutschlandfunk Nova 2021

German public broadcaster, Deutschlandradio, has commissioned Wisebuddah to produce the new station sound for their alternative speech and music station, Deutschlandfunk Nova.

As the youngest member in the Deutschlandradio family, Deutschlandfunk Nova broadcasts nationally bringing dynamic, sophisticated and future-oriented radio to its young target audience.

The new package from the London-based production company features 12 bespoke themes, alongside a new punchy two-note sonic logo, which is built around and championing the unique ‘Nova’ character.

Dominik Evers, Editorial Management for Deutschlandfunk Nova, said: “The basic idea of the new sound design is that the jingle sounds vary throughout the day – based on our content. For instance, in the morning we have a jingle that goes well with the news and current affairs coverage; in the evening it gets more electronic and modern.

We have found Wisebuddah to be very professional, highly sophisticated and constructive. In this regard, we have truly benefitted from Wisebuddah’s broad experience.”

Wisebuddah’s Managing Director, Phil Tozer, added: “Deutschlandfunk Nova is one of the most unique stations in Germany, with its eclectic delivery of speech programming alongside an incredible playlist of alternative music. We were tasked with creating a sound which embraced the station’s output and appealed to its core listeners, and working alongside the Deutschlandfunk Nova team allowed us to produce something which truly brings the station to life.”

The Best AC Jingle Package Yet @wbjingles

Magic Radio Unveil New Station Sound with Wisebuddah Jingles

UK National Network Magic Radio has launched a brand new, Wisebuddah Jingles custom ID package.

Comprising ten new custom suites across Breakfast, Daytime and Evening, along with brand new information elements, the package also sees a brand new sonic logo created for the station.

Featuring live orchestral sections, arranged by Cliff Masterson (Little Mix, Emeli Sandé, Kylie Minogue), the new sound continues Magic’s partnership with Wisebuddah, who also produced the previous package for the Bauer station.

Paul Plant, Managing Director at Wisebuddah said: “It’s been a joy to help rebrand an iconic station in UK commercial radio as Magic.

Featuring a host of live instruments, played by some of the country’s top musicians and a blend of great vocal talent, it’s been a hugely creative and collaborative project from the start with Tony, Dan and the team at Magic”

Tony Moorey, Content Director for Magic, added: “We were looking for something different for a completely updated radio station – a new breakfast show presented by Harriet Scott and Ronan Keating coming soon, more songs from the 80s and 90s – and we wanted to get the message across.

This package is just the start of a new sound for Magic, and we worked really closely with the guys at Wisebuddah to get something that sounded fresh and exciting. We wanted jingles that sounded like the music we play, without apeing them – plus a distinctive sonic logo that reflects our new message, “More of the Songs You Love”. We set a big challenge – and we were really blown away with the ideas and the final delivery.

Plus with numerous musicians, four singers and input from the whole team at Magic, Wisebuddah did a great job of managing the whole process too.”

This Is What Makes Radio 1 Imaging Stand Out, Props to @Wisebuddah @MrMatthewFisher

We created a sonic “ONE” that will run through the daytime IDs, beds and song intros.

Radio 1 Create with Wisebuddah

In Autumn 2016, Wisebuddah was chosen to produce a new station sound package for BBC Radio 1.
Comprising 8 core themes, the new sound reflects the mainstream output of the station, from electronic and dance to indie & pop.

Wisebuddah Producer, George Taylor:

“Radio 1 wanted this package to be authentic, creative and to the point. Musically it needed to match the playlist, vocally it needed to be authentic and functionally it needed to get to the point. We created a sonic “ONE” that will run through the daytime IDs, beds and song intros. The vocal talent are all up-and-coming artists, I opened the mic and they did their thing.”

Paul Plant, Managing Director, Wisebuddah Jingles:

“To be able to add such a high profile package and Radio 1 to our portfolio of BBC stations is incredible. I am constantly surprised and delighted by the sonic diversity and the output produced by our team. To be able to place this package alongside our work for Radio 2 and the Asian Network makes for a hugely diverse and vibrant working environment.

Radio 1 is without doubt one of the world’s most iconic radio stations, so it’s been a privilege to work with Matt and the team in developing and nurturing the station into the sound of 2017 and beyond. It’s innovative, creative, future facing and it encompasses everything that the station stands for.”

The package features brand-new IDs and a new Show Opener for the station; along with News, Travel and Weather information elements, complimented with an extensive vocal logo toolkit.

Composed and produced to reflect the station’s mission to play ‘Die beste Musik für Sachsen-Anhalt’, the package takes musical inspiration from the 80s to the present day, and is brimming with vocal and instrumental hooks, perfect for the station’s Modern-AC format. Each ID has versions with both strong and soft tag sings, to allow every cut to easily perfectly? to whichever song is next on the Radio Brocken playlist.

Radio Brocken’s Programme Director, Tina Wilhelm, said:

“Wisebuddah convinced with a unique package that catapulted Radio Brocken into the Champions League of Sound. The new custom made jingles perfectly caress the various musical styles of our programming and provide a warm, friendly and unique listening experience for Radio Brocken listeners. The newly developed “feel-good” station logo really supports this approach.”

Richard Gleitsmann, Head of On-Air Promotion, Radio Brocken:

“Working with Wisebuddah was always highly professional. Ben, the producer, fulfilled all our wishes and brought more ideas to the table to further drive the sound to perfection. The professional cooperation was always characterised by the flexibility for our ideas and thus always un-bureaucratic…or to put it simply, it was just really great fun to work together with Wisebuddah.”

Phil Tozer, Wisebuddah’s Production Manager, said:

“It’s been a exceptionally busy and exciting summer for us, and the package for Radio Brocken has been a huge part of that. Creating versatile cuts to work with the different sings was really important as we really wanted all the cuts to produce a natural fit against the wide musical variety on Radio Brocken’s Modern-AC playlist.”

Ben Townsend, Wisebuddah:

“It was a real pleasure working with Tina and Richard on this package, it was great to have them over in London for the vocal sessions, which were a brilliantly creative couple of days. It’s been great to have played a part in the new sound of Radio Brocken.”

Urban 96 (Nigeria) and Radio Inside (Switzerland) will take IMGR’s CHR format, whilst three stations from the UK and Irish based Tindle Radio Group – Midlands 103, Channel 103 and Island FM have switched from their previous service to IMGR Hot AC.

IMGR creates daily content updates for affiliates who include Kiss in the UK, Skala FM in Denmark, Johannesburg’s 947 amongst many more.

IMGR Creative Director Chris Nicoll says: “We’ve had an incredibly busy few months – and along the way we’ve been lucky enough to sign deals with some amazing radio brands not just in Europe and Africa, but across America and Canada too. The launch of IMGR Country recognizes what is one of the most exciting formats in American and Canadian radio.”
