Music experts have revealed the 5 best radio stations to help calm pets as animal lovers across the country prepare for the fireworks displays set to take place tonight.

One of the most popular ways to help keep dogs calm during Bonfire Night is to cover the crackling and banging with music.

However, the type of music played is important with some types of music (like those with a high BPM) potentially increasing a dog’s anxiety while other types can leave them feeling disengaged and bored.

Experts from Startle, a music curation platform, rated 25 of the UK’s most popular radio stations, looking at genre diversity, tempo and energy, before giving each station an overall score .

What radio stations do dogs like the most?

Surprise found 5 radio stations that they believe are the best for keeping a dog calm and engaged during that dreaded Guy Fawkes night.

Using studies suggesting that dogs prefer a variety of genres to stimulate them, low dynamic range songs to avoid startling them, and a tempo (BPM) like their own heartbeat to relax them, Startle found some of the best stations for our furry friends to listen to. at.

Of the 5 named, Smooth FM came out on top with an overall rating of 7.3.

Startle found that Smooth FM offered good genre diversity, the best tempo score, and the highest level of energy to keep dogs engaged.

Smooth FM was followed by BBC Radio 1, which had an overall score of 6.7. The station, which specializes in modern pop music, had a high gender diversity score of 10, but was lower on the list for its tempo score, meaning the tempo was less dog-friendly.

In 3rd place is Heart 80s, which, as its name suggests, focuses on popular music from the 1980s.

Depending on who you ask, it’s never too early to start listening to Christmas music.

Radio station WARM 103.3, which usually broadcasts pop songs, will switch to exclusively broadcasting Christmas music starting Wednesday, November 9 at 5 p.m.

The channel will return to its usual musical repertoire after the end-of-year celebrations.

When is the best time for Christmas music to start playing on the radio?

The radio station is currently running a contest on its Facebook page about which song to play first, Andy Williams’ “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year,” Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas is You,” or “Christmas Eve Sarajevo” by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. Voting doubles as entry into a raffle to win tickets to the Pentatonix and Trans-Siberian Orchestra Christmas concerts in Hershey.

SiriusXM launched numerous Christmas channels on its satellite radio stations, as well as its streaming service, on November 1, including favorites like Holiday Traditions, Hallmark Channel Radio and ’70s/’80s Holidays.

Check out the PDF below for Christmas music channel options, as well as when the channels will go live for streaming or satellite listening.

Local BBC radio stations face major cuts to content made for their region | Radio https://krmyradio.com/local-bbc-radio-stations-face-major-cuts-to-content-made-for-their-region-radio/ Mon, 31 Oct 2022 00:23:00 +0000 https://krmyradio.com/local-bbc-radio-stations-face-major-cuts-to-content-made-for-their-region-radio/ Local BBC radio stations could end up with a handful of programs specific to their region under proposals expected to be announced this week.

Local BBC radio stations could end up with a handful of programs specific to their region under proposals expected to be announced this week.

A new round of BBC cuts are due to be announced on Monday, with sources telling the Guardian it will herald the end of most local radio stations as truly distinctive stand-alone outlets.

Plans under consideration include cutting the number of weekday shows on each local BBC radio station to two, leaving just one breakfast show and one lunch show. Production during the afternoons and evenings would consist of broadcasts on several local stations in large swathes of the UK or nationally.

Weekend production, with the exception of sports coverage, would also air widely on a regional basis, ending many of the single shows currently airing on local stations.

Although the BBC has trumpeted the success of its 39 local English radio stations as being at the heart of their communities – particularly during the pandemic and in a recent series of interviews with Liz Truss – they face two key challenges .

One is the huge financial impact of the license fee freeze in real terms and the challenge of runaway cost inflation. The other is audience shifts, with BBC bosses keen to redeploy staff from radio stations with aging and declining audiences to create online content for younger and growing audiences.

Plans would be confined to stations in England, as devolved nations have their own management teams and structure.

Such changes will likely result in dozens of job losses, rounds of voluntary departures, and presenters having to reapply for jobs. Some well-known local hosts risk losing their jobs in the process or having to take on joint producer-broadcaster roles.

BBC bosses will set out their plans in detail this week, with staff invited to calls from Monday to hear “proposals to turn BBC England into a full media service”.

A BBC spokesperson told the Guardian: “We announced in May that we would introduce greater program sharing between our 39 local BBC radio stations in England. This will allow us to increase investment in local digitized services.

“We will be sharing more information about these plans very soon – and our own staff will of course be informed first of any proposed changes. Our local services are trusted by millions and our plans are designed to ensure we keep pace with the public in a rapidly changing world.

The latest cuts follow previously announced plans to end regional television newscasts for Oxford and Cambridge.

Last month BBC Director General Tim Davie warned MPs that the company was being forced to cut costs due to the decision to freeze license fees. Speaking to the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee, he said: “We are under very significant pressure, due to the decision to keep the license fee flat, which we did not want. “

But, he added: “We must continue to invest and develop our local offer. I think that’s an absolute key strength of the BBC.

The BBC has told the government it will face a £285m revenue gap by 2027 due to the license fee freeze. Last month the BBC announced major cuts to its World Service output involving the loss of around 382 jobs in a bid to save £28.5million.

As part of its plans, the company will stop producing radio shows in 10 languages, including Chinese, Hindi and Arabic. BBC Persian will also end its audio broadcasts to Iran.

There will also be a shift in focus for the World Service’s English-language radio production, with more time devoted to live news and sports programming at the expense of stand-alone programs.

The latest listening figures, released last week, showed that BBC radio now accounts for 46.7% of all radio listening in the UK, compared to 50.9% for commercial radio.

While the BBC continues to maintain dozens of separate local stations at substantial cost, large commercial groups have opted for a different strategy.

They have combined dozens of formerly separate local radio stations under national brands such as Heart and Capital, providing the bare minimum of local production to meet requirements set by media regulator Ofcom. Despite complaints about the loss of local identities, the new outlets are doing well with audiences and tending to increase viewing figures.

The BBC’s existing license agreement expires at the end of 2027 and discussions are ongoing about what could replace it.

More power for HD radio stations?

Digital radio stations could get their first power boost in more than a decade if the Federal Communications Commission accepts a proposal from HD radio developer Xperi and the National Association of Broadcasters. In a joint filing, the two entities are asking the FCC to adopt an updated formula for determining FM power levels. They say the revision is based on “real-world operational experience” that has been gained since the FCC last approved a power boost in 2010.

In a jargon-laden filing, Xperi and NAB say that over the past 12 years, concerns have grown over the current approach to power measurement. In their current form, FCC rules allow all digital FM stations that meet certain guidelines to operate at ten percent analog power. The rules allow some stations to exceed this on a case-by-case basis, as long as they are armed with evidence that the power increase does not cause interference to adjacent channel analog signals.

“The current formula overestimates the potential for digital interference and has prevented stations from increasing their power, which has limited digital service,” say Xperi and NAB. The companies say the past decade has shown the formula is “too restrictive” and overestimates the level of protection that analog stations need. They also say that the approach assumes symmetric rather than asymmetric digital sidebands. “Using symmetric sidebands for all calculations eliminates a viable path for many stations to increase power on at least one sideband, which would improve digital coverage,” the companies say.

To prove that more power can work, Xperi and NAB worked with engineers from Audacy and iHeartMedia to examine a number of short-spaced stations. They found several instances where digital stations were already operating at the power level currently sought, and despite their high power, there were no well-documented reports of interference by any of these stations.

Two separate field tests using “New York Public Radio” WNYC-FM New York (93.9) were also conducted under FCC experimental authority in two parts of the market last year to determine whether the proposed higher power could operate without creating interference. The tests – one on March 15, 2021 in Connecticut, the other on March 29, 2021 in New Jersey – showed that there was no significant change or degradation in the desired WNYC-FM signal when he increased his power. It also didn’t cause interference with Audacy’s first adjacent sport WIP-FM Philadelphia (94.1) and rhythmic CHR “Hot 93.7” WZMX Hartford.

More Power, More HD Stations

The latest data from Xperi shows both the successes and shortcomings of digital radio. Since the FCC approved the service two decades ago, the number of HD Radio receivers has grown to more than 90 million, mostly installed in vehicles. In June, more than 59% of all new vehicles shipped nationwide contained a factory-installed HD Radio receiver. And Xperi says the number of HD Radio-equipped cars in some radio markets exceeds 40%.

The weakest link in the growth chain has become the broadcasters themselves. “While digital receiver sales have grown significantly over the past five years, station conversions have not seen the same growth,” Xperi and NAB say in their filing. Broadcasters have converted nearly 2,600 radio stations in the United States, but they say more power could help bring more digital stations. “A significant contributor to the slow rate of station adoption is the frustration of many stations that are unable to fully replicate their analog coverage using the power levels permitted by existing rules,” they state.

Xperi and NAB suggest that carrying more digital radio stations is important, and not just because it will help broadcasters keep up with receiver sales growth. They argue that this will allow the radio to better serve the public by offering a wider range of programming with their subchannel stations. An increase in station conversion rates would also encourage manufacturers to continue investing in the development of HD Radio equipment, which would reduce equipment costs and allow more stations to convert to digital. Adopting the proposals, they say, is “an important step that will benefit all sectors of the digital broadcasting ecosystem”.

A number of New Zealand radio stations have removed all music by the artist formerly known as Kanye West from rotation, amid recent controversy surrounding the rapper.

But a national network says it has not received any negative comments about continuing to air a “limited number” of songs by Ye.

A spokesperson for Mediaworks, which owns stations such as Edge and Mai FM, said Things, “we have a very limited number of songs playing on a few of our radio brands.”

“We are actively staying on top of the public’s feelings and have not received any negative feedback.”

However, NZME, which owns stations such as Flava, The Hits and ZM, has removed all of the controversial artist’s tracks from rotation.

Globally, Apple Music joined a growing list of those cutting ties with the artist on Friday, as Deadline reported that the rapper’s Essentials playlist was no longer available on the platform.

However, Apple rival Spotify said this week it would keep the rapper’s music on the service, despite public condemnation of his comments.

A number of people and businesses cut ties with Ye this week, following backlash over recent anti-Semitic comments.

The recent backlash against artist Gold Digger came over anti-Semitic posts, which resulted in his Instagram and Twitter accounts being restricted. Earlier this month, Ye was criticized for wearing a “White Lives Matter” t-shirt while showing off his latest collection at Paris Fashion Week.

On Wednesday, Adidas announced it was severing ties with Ye and ceasing production of the rapper’s Yeezy line, which made up around $2.6 billion of his net worth.

He was also dropped by his talent agency CAA. His ex-wife Kim Kardashian spoke out publicly against anti-Semitism in a tweet and MRC Entertainment released an already completed documentary. London’s famous wax museum, Madame Tussauds, has also removed its wax statue of the rapper from public view.

New Zealand radio’s response to Ye is not the first time local stations have taken a stand against the controversy surrounding the artists.

In 2019, Michael Jackson’s music was removed from New Zealand radio stations after Leaving Neverland, a bombshell documentary by filmmaker Dan Reed, which focused on claims by two men who were close to Jackson as children that the singer molested them for years.

On Saturday evening, the Zamfara State Government announced the closure of some broadcast stations.

Two of the affected stations belong to the federal government while the other three are private.

In an announcement made on Radio Zamfara by the State Information Commissioner, Ibrahim Dosara, Mr. Matawalle ordered the immediate closure of the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) Gusau, Federal Radio Corporation Pride FM Gusau, Al’umma TV, Gamji FM and Gamji TV.

In the announcement which was repeated several times in the Hausa language, Mr Matawall also asked State Police Commissioner Kolo Yusuf to ensure full compliance with the order.

There is no indication that Zamfara’s government has obtained permission from Nigeria’s broadcasting regulator, NBC, to sanction media houses.

Information Commissioner Dosara and Governor Spokesman Zailani Bappa did not respond to calls and text messages for further comment on the order.

The state government gave no reason for its action, other than that the stations violated government order and journalistic practices.

PREMIUM TIMES has now learned from sources in the state that the media organizations involved were shut down because State Governor Bello Matagall was upset that the stations were airing the gubernatorial candidate’s campaign event. opposition, the People’s Democratic Party, PDP. , Dauda Dare, Friday.

How journalists angered Matawall

Ahead of the order banning broadcasting stations, the state government, through Mr. Dosara, issued a statement on Friday banning, among other things, all political gatherings in the state until further notice.


Mr Dosara said the decision was due to the resurgence of terrorist activity in the state.

He said the governor ordered the immediate suspension of all APC meetings and activities as part of his government’s concern and sympathy for the people and communities attacked by bandits.

“Stakeholders invited to the APC Stakeholder Meeting on Friday are asked to wait for a new date for the meeting.

“Furthermore, the government has suspended all political activities in the state until further notice.

“Political meetings and gatherings in individual residences are also banned with immediate effect.”

Nigeria’s electoral commission, INEC, which regulates campaigning and electoral activities, had previously announced the start of campaigning for the 2023 general elections across the country.

Possibly backed by the INEC guideline but in apparent defiance of the Zamfara government’s directive, PDP candidate Mr. Dare returned to Abuja state to receive thousands of supporters during a a rally broadcast by broadcasting stations.

“The governor was angry,” a senior source at Zamfara government headquarters told PREMIUM TIMES.

“If you knew him, you would know he hates it when someone tries to put him down. He can take any action,” said the source, who asked not to be named as he does not have the permission to speak to journalists.

“He wanted to send a message to the opposition but it’s a political season and I think he’s wrong.”

He added that Mr. Matawall immediately ordered his information commissioner to question the general managers of the stations as to why they broadcast the PDP rally.

“I don’t know what happened during the discussion. Perhaps the journalists disagreed with the government’s demands. But I knew the decision to close them was made because of that action,” he said.

Clash between APC and PDP

Meanwhile, the PDP rally welcoming its candidate for governor of Abuja ended in violence as supporters of the ruling APC clashed with those of the PDP.

Following the violent clashes at the event, the APC accused the PDP of inciting violence by attacking innocent residents, but the opposition party accused APC supporters of attacking its members who attended the rally.

At least one person has been confirmed dead while 14 others have suffered various injuries, according to a statement from State Anti Thuggery Committee boss Bello Bakyasuwa.

He said the 14 injured were taken to Yariman Bakura Specialist Hospital for medical treatment.

Subsequently, in a statement, the publicity secretary of the APC in the state, Yusuf Idris-Gusau, said that the government would not “look at this matter in abeyance because these criminals are trying to introduce into the state capital what we have always accused them of doing at the fringes.

He said the opposition party had halted the monthly sanitation exercise. He alleged that party members shot residents during the event.

“Security agencies should also find out how and where the PDP/Dauda boys have secured such dangerous firearms as we believe they have others in their custody awaiting use in the upcoming general elections in 2023,” he added.

But in a swift reaction, the PDP claimed that it was APC-sponsored thugs who attacked its members.

Mr. Dare, in a statement, said Mr. Matawall was stifling the democratic process.

He argued that their rally was in tandem with the disposition of the Independent National Electoral Commission announcing the start of gubernatorial campaigns.

“Today the thugs led by an Aliyu Alhazai Shinkafi, the former Chairman of the Zamfara Anti-Bandit Committee and Commander of the Zamfara Road Traffic Agency (ZAROTA) attacked the residence of the gubernatorial candidate of the PDP. Thugs led by Alhazai barricaded the road leading to the residence and the place of Lawal, defining the parameters of the attack. In the new unprovoked attack, our campaign buses were vandalized and looted.

“We know that the APC and the government led by Matawall intend to use illegal force to stop our campaign activities across Zamfara. The hooliganism we weren’t praying for has returned to the state. The problem is cause for concern. »

The NBTC has asked radio stations across the country to broadcast government disaster reports for public safety reasons amid heavy downpours and flooding in the areas.

The Office of the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission has asked radio stations across the country to broadcast government disaster reports for public safety reasons amid heavy downpours and flooding in the regions.
Sombat Leelapata, Acting General Secretary of NBTC, said the NBTC office sent the request to radio stations across the country as their contribution would allow people to be informed of possible disasters early enough for their safety.

Heavy rains continued in many parts of the county and people needed to be notified quickly of possible flash floods, runoff and high waves, he said.

Government spokesman Anucha Burapachaisri said that during a meeting on flood response and victim assistance at the Interior Ministry on October 3, Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha ordered officials to quickly report flooding situations to the population. He emphasized radio broadcasts as radio remains the best channel of communication with the public, the spokesman said.

Polls have confirmed that the radio is still popular among people of all age groups, Mr Anucha said. (TNA)
