With apologies to the 1979 Buggles, video DID NOT kill the radio star.
This holiday I spent A LOT of time in the car listening to ‘old fashioned wireless radio’ (Being an admitted Podcast/Pandora addict I wanted to see what I might be missing on the ‘old FM dial’.)
As expected, I wasn’t really missing much. Unless you consider the 24 X 7 stream of Taylor Swift that seems to have be optimized for every radio station format broadcasting between Seattle and New York.
So I was thrilled to learn about some QUALITY radio programming scheduled for January 2nd. A full hour on Social Media in the Enterprise. Bonnie D. Graham will host a conversation between Microsoft’s AR/PR Leadership, Social Media Expert Amber MacArthur and SAP’s own Schalk Viljoen. Collectively, they may not sell as many albums as the lovely and talented Ms. Swift. But they don’t appear to have as many problems with their boyfriends as she does, either. (Never, ever, ever, Taylor? 🙁 )
No word yet if they will be the opening act for Taylor on her upcoming Red tour.
