Sanjo Radio 79.7 Kyoto Japan Starts New Show Nippon Night Talk

A radio program entitled NNT-radio (Nippon Night Talk) will begin at Kyoto Community Radio Sanjo Radio Cafe FM 79.7MHz. This program welcomes guests every night (midnight program) with the themes of “traditional culture”, which is a topic unique to Kyoto, “art” regardless of age, and various “manufacturing” topics.

NNT-radio, along with main commentator Tamamura Ryo, has three personalities: Dalia Lucina, who came to Japan with an interest in Japanese culture, Marie Mizuno, who develops art activities in Kyoto, and Kaori Sakurai, a popular person in the streets of Kyoto.

Nowadays, there is a feeling of distance among Japanese people due to the health issue, but based on the three themes (traditional culture, art, and manufacturing) that can be said to be Japanese specialty, listeners can see the future of Japan by listening to the stories of people involved in manufacturing.

Japan, which used to be the center of producing consumer items, in recent years there have been more stories of being overtaken by other countries. People who are still steadily working on manufacturing are in many local cities, including Kyoto, and they support families. 

In terms of art, Kyoto has long been the center of Japanese art and has created many artists, and even today, young and talented artists are secretly working on the creation of works day and night. 

Including them, the city of Kyoto has created and nurtured traditions and culture over the years of 1200. There is the power of Kyoto and Japan that cannot be seen just by visiting Kyoto for sightseeing. However, these themes have a high threshold, deep and heavy impression. Therefore, in order to make it easier for people to see and hear on this radio, the team aimed for a community-radio broadcast that can be enjoyed by setting the broadcast to midnight.

Sanjo Radio Cafe 79.7 is online at https://radiocafe.jp, its broadcast origin is from Nakagyo-ku, Kyoto City, Kyoto Prefecture, Japan.

Z100 New York Radio Imaging Highlight Mid 2019

Z100 Imaging Director Brent Williams has just posted an update of Z100 New York’s imaging including branded intros, sweeps, and promos, with clever copy and use of song snippets from Khalid songs.

Speaking of Khalid, in some related news, the collab with him and Ed Sheeran continues to be a massive hit.

From 12 July the project “it will be available in stores and in all digital platforms. 6 Collaborations Project ”. After choosing “I Don’t Care” with Justin Bieber and ” Cross Me” with Chance the Rapper and PnB Rock, the third single extracted is “Beautiful People”, in collaboration with Khalid. These are the words of Ed Sheeran about his colleague: «Khalid has an undoubtedly soulful voice and I knew it would be perfect for this track. I think we get connected to the song in the same way and I’m really happy that we ended up working together. ” Another piece with a summer flavor that deals with the importance of staying true to oneself. In the text Ed Sheeran speaks of people who think only of appearances (“Beautiful People”) and of the need not to be influenced. What matters is not the material goods, this is the strong message that the songwriter has transmitted to the song and in the video. In fact, in the images that accompany the song, the two artists find themselves in a world where the things that matter are only luxury and appearances. A world of excesses that need not necessarily be shared. The video was directed by Andy McLeod, while the song is produced by Shellback, Max Martin, FRED and Ed Sheeran.

The album comes eight years after the last “Collaborations Project”. Meanwhile Ed Sheeran has become one of the most appreciated and loved by the public international artists. He is currently on tour in Europe and will end his live activity in August with four shows in Ipswich. The “No. 6 Collaborations Project ”arrives two years after“ Divide ”from which were then extracted iconic singles such as“ Shape of You ”,“ Castle on the Hill ”and“ Happier ”. Ed Sheeran’s intention is to have fun and entertain with the help of colleagues and artists he loves and who represent a source of great inspiration. “My rule was: if I listen to his music in the car, then I’ll cooperate. There are a lot of great artists I could have worked with, but it wouldn’t have made sense.

Is She The Next Kelly Doherty, Or The First Her?

It would be totally unfair to her, but this lady is the next big (thing) or voice in the world of radio imaging. The great Kelly Kelly Kelly is irreplaceable of course, but we know her story, from her humble beginnings to a radio production goddess. But we can’t help it.

She has just been referred to by the production god – Dave Foxx, a true voice talent, a producer for the Z100 morning show and the voice of the recently launched PromoBeds.com.

Is she the next Kelly, Kelly, Kelly?

She is the first Loren Raye – the Athena of radio imaging.

Who is Loren Raye?

A passionate and vivacious chick, Loren is grateful to be a producer for Elvis Duran and the Morning Show, a nationally-syndicated radio show based out of the world-famous Z100 in New York City!

For eight exciting and challenging months, she trained extensively with (incredibly brilliant!) voice over artist/mentor Joan Baker, and Emmy Award-winning Creative DirectorRudy Gaskins. She continues to train with the dynamic duo today! To develop her radio imaging skills, Loren works withDave Foxx (radio imaging Prod God!) who is based out of Z100 and heard worldwide. Loren is represented by Don Buchwald & Associates and is a member of AFTRA.

She can be heard on nationally-syndicatedClub Kane, and (with Dave on) 106.7 The Beat in Detroit, Michigan. A true nerd at heart, she was elated to have recorded in the famous Howard Schwartz Studios, and firmly believes that three things are essential to a happy life: good food, good company, and a comfy pair of sweatpants!
