Air personalities tell us they crave more feedback than they get now. Radio programmers tell us they don’t have time. And, in many cases, lack the expertise to properly aircheck. It’s time to do something about it with a new online video show. The Aircheck Sessions launches January 12 on Twitch.
The new show features me breaking down several airchecks in each episode. Anyone can submit an aircheck to be reviewed in detail. I’ll also select specific segments I’ve heard recently and analyze the performance.
Here are answers to questions about the show:
Where can I watch it?
It’ll be on the Tracy Johnson Media Group Twitch Channel at www.twitch.tv/tracyjohnsonmediagroup.
When is it on?
The first episode is at 1 pm Eastern Time on January 12, 2021. The plan is to start with a monthly show and increase the frequency, depending on interest and airchecks submitted.
What will it be like?
It’s a live aircheck session breaking down radio segments in detail. Each episode will feature 4-6 breaks from different personalities. I’ll play the audio, then critique it.
Will the personalities be on?
Not at first. Organizing that many participants on the live show is a little too complicated. But viewers will be able to participate in the chat room, and I’ll answer questions.
How long will it last?
Plan on each episode running for 30-60 minutes.
Can I watch it on-demand?
Yes. Each episode will be archived and available on the channel anytime. But only those watching live can participate in the chat.
All you have to do is ask. Email one (and only one) full segment of your show to [email protected] I’ll put you on an upcoming episode.
Here are some important guidelines to follow:
If you’re a programmer, I encourage you to attend. There’ll be tips and guidance for better aircheck techniques to help develop skills to help personalities.
And feel free to submit airchecks from the shows on your station.
I hope you’re as excited about this opportunity as I am about providing it. I can’t wait to see you on The Aircheck Sessions!
