As part of the Electronic Sound Summit 2020, the Liverpool Audio Network invited Melodic Distraction to host a panel discussion exploring the ever-changing landscape for one of the music industry’s most powerful mediums; radio.
Radio has long been at the heart of the music industry. It brings people together, educates listeners and catapults artists into stardom. However, over the years we’ve changed the way we consume radio. We’ve watched the change from FM to Digital, Live to On Demand and the recent plunge into audio-visual streaming.
Melodic Distraction invited 4 leading experts in global radio and streaming to sit down and discuss all things radio. Our panelists were at some of the highest points in the industry working and representing brands that include: Boiler Room, NTS Radio, Red Bull Music, BBC Radio 1Xtra, BBC Radio 1, Channel 4, Worldwide FM, The Guardian, Crack Magazine, Resident Advisor, and not to mention Melodic Distraction.
