Between The Grooves #13

This week we’re looking at the mystery that is Christian radio. Musicians often see radio play as the next logical step for their song, but what does it actually take to get on-air? One of us plays an important role in the industry working at JOY Radio (CJYE), which has the largest audience reach of any Christian format station in Canada; and the third largest in North America! Want your song heard by thousands of people each day? Let’s flip the mic on Between The Grooves own James Kurtis for answers.

What we talk about:

  • helping create the sound of a station through song selection
  • how to structure a radio clock
  • what CanCon is and why it’s important (or not)
  • top ten radio pet peeves
