Radio Programming Ideas For Personalities and Programmers, Especially Country Radio Broadcasters.
Radio pros at Country Radio Seminar rose to their feet Thursday afternoon at the site of Country Music Hall of Famer Tom T. Hall, who stepped out of “retirement” to spin some stories and sing three songs on a WCRS bill with Mercury Nashville recording artist Easton Corbin and NSAI Songwriter of the Year Wynn Varble.“People say breaking into the business is hard,” Hall said at the event, which was sponsored by Country Aircheck and BMI. “You ought to try to break out of it sometime.”In front of an audience that also included singer-songwriter Jack Ingram, Hall talked about the bluegrass songwriting he’s doing with wife Dixie Hall and about the acoustic music studio they operate at their Fox Hollow ranch. He performed self-penned hit songs “Homecoming,” “The Year That Clayton Delaney Died” and “I Love,” and he cautioned against putting down newer music simply because of its newness.“Art moves this way,” he said, pointing forward. “If you’re doing it the way they used to do it, that’s copying. It’s already been done. ... Do it your way, and have some fun.”
