Pandora, internet radio king -After reporting profits for the 3rd quarter and beating Wall Street analyst predictions, critics are still skeptical about the future of the company. But I’m not. Pandora still works wonders on my days. There’s something comforting about having whatever music you’re in the mood for at the click of a mouse. Should Pandora be worried about the competition? Absolutely. Worthy adversaries such as Spotify, Radio and Stereomood have their own unique features to boast about. Stereomood, for example, is pretty sweet because you pick a playlist based on your mood.

A good friend of mine is getting married next weekend and his bachelor party was this past Saturday. He wanted nothing too crazy, just a grillout and a nightclub afterwards. He began to ask me for suggestions. I thought in my head and something quickly came to mind, the new Boogie Nights 80’s dance club at the Hollywood Casino (Lawrenceburg, Indiana). Now you are asking me why did that come to mind? The answer is radio advertising. I am a big fan of rock music and this particular station was airing ads for this club multiple times per day during the drive home slot (3-7), which typically has the highest listenership as well. Due to this suggestion, the club made over $1000 on drinks/food from our group.
“THIS GUY’S IN LOVE WITH YOU” (Herb Alpert, 1968): More famous as the originator of The Tijuana Brass, which churned out 18 top 40 hits, this was Alpert’s only Top 40 solo item. The producer-bandleader was already playing trumpet at age 8, and in addition to becoming the first No. 1 hit on Alpert’s A&M record label, it also spent 10 consecutive weeks at the top of the adult contemporary charts.
Every DJ should cater to the young women in the crowd first. Why the girls, you ask? Because they are the first people to get on the dance floor and show off for everyone. If you play the music they enjoy (even if it’s Britney), the men will soon follow.
At the very least, McKinney has shown she has no judgment. She’s quite possibly something much worse, however. If the Green Party ever wants legitimacy, it must get rid of McKinney for good. She’s an embarrassment.
