Julius Marchwicki, Ford’s global product manager for Sync AppLink, interviewed by Leslie Stimson from Radio World.


As global product manager for Ford Sync AppLink, he’s at the center of what automakers are doing to entice young people into buying cars. Bigger engines don’t do the trick anymore, according to experts in that world; so Marchwicki works with companies like Pandora, Stitcher and Clear Channel to deliver in-vehicle connectivity to infotainment sources.

Sync is the automaker’s connectivity system, AppLink is an application programming interface. Marchwicki works with companies in application development and content creation and distribution, wireless handset and platform development, to deliver features into cars that consumers want.

The Northwestern University computer engineering grad spoke with Radio World News Editor/Washington Bureau Chief Leslie Stimson about how “radio” in all of its forms fits into the new dashboard, part of a new series of articles on radio’s role in the evolving world of consumer electronics.

Pandora Founder on Digital Media, Internet Radio

Tim Westergren discovered a need everyone shares, and he applied his creativity and innovation through entrepreneurship to meet that need.

That’s the message Westergren delivered when he sat down with Heritage’s Jackie Anderson and spoke to The Bloggers Briefing to discuss how he founded his visionary company, Pandora Radio, that now dominates 80 percent of the emerging Internet radio industry.

“I was really inspired by how could I sort of harness technology to make life easier for working musicians,” said Westergren. “[Pandora] is a paradigmatic shift in what radio is.”

He started the company after working himself as a musician in the film industry. As a film composer, he began grouping songs according to their construction and impact on the listener so he could better meet the musical tastes of the film directors he worked with on a day-to-day basis. “I had the idea one day to try and codify that, and build a discovery technology,” he said.

He called this discovery technology “the music genome project,” a mathematical sorting product that could analyze thousands of songs across 450 different dimensions, including melody, harmony, rhythm and instrumentation, and group them according to each song’s unique musical “DNA.”

“We literally did it on pencil and paper, believe it or not, in the beginning, to capture a song’s sound, and then by marrying that to mathematics, to an algorithm essentially, we could literally compute the proximity of one song to another,” he said.

Now the company catalogues more than 100,000 artists and 1 million songs, 98.5 percent of which played in the last 30 days, according to Westergren. The service draws about 70 million unique listeners each month.

The reason he believes accounts for Pandora’s explosive word-of-mouth growth since its release in 2005? Because it addresses a problem everyone has. “We all love music to a greater or lesser degree, but we all have a hard time finding music that we like easily,” he said.

“As you get older, radio does not play your music any more,” he said. “I think what Pandora does, and is doing, is reconnecting people to their music.”

Radio is Bad at Technology, but…

Radio is Bad at Technology, but… | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it
All right, let's just say it. Radio is really bad at technology.

 

Technology today is helping to broaden the definition of brands and transform them into experiences. In fact, the future of brands is as experiences across media and platforms.

But it begins with recognizing that your brand is more than your station and more than your stream – it’s the center of an experience that has less to do with the brand itself than the way it intersects with the lives of its consumers.

Because while radio may be bad at technology, radio can be superb at humanity.

Can APIs Solve Music’s 'Crisis of Innovation'?

Can APIs Solve Music’s 'Crisis of Innovation'? | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it

here’s an old saw among established technology companies that says innovation happens elsewhere, that big ideas can come from small, unexpected places.

 

The best way to tap into that potential, according to this view, is to throw open the gates and let all developers build products on top of your existing, proprietary technology. Make it easy for developers, and good things are bound to happen.

 

That, at least, has been the ethos behind the steady stream of music-related application software interfaces, or APIs. Last month, two companies, Gracenote and MediaNet, quietly added their APIs into the mix.

Why don't people listen to radio as much on streaming devices? New Triton Digital data from January shows broadcast radio streams split 80/20 in favor of listening on desktops.

It showed pureplays with a 70/30 split in favor of mobile listening, driven by Pandora.   However broadcast streams did see an 18% increase in mobile listening in January, which Triton says was the fastest growing sector of the month. Pureplay desktop and mobile listening remained relatively consistent at a 2% and 3% gain respectively.

Detroit’s Big Three committed to FM/AM radio | Inside Radio

Detroit’s Big Three committed to FM/AM radio | Inside Radio | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it

The digital dashboard is bringing all sorts of things to drivers, but it won’t push FM/AM radio out of the front seat.  That’s according to the big three automakers.  General Motors, Ford and Chrysler each tell Inside Radio they’re committed to keeping broadcast radio inside their dashboards — and some are even doubling down on their commitment to it.

We have no plans to get rid of them because of their value for our customers,” Chrysler spokesman Eric Mayne says.  He points out they’ve just announced plans to begin installing HD Radio as standard on some Dodge Ram pickups.  It’s a similar message from General Motors where executive say they have “no near term plans” to stop installing broadcast radio in cars. “While we are excited about the possibilities of internet radio services and other emerging services, we understand that AM/FM radio is still a significant source of news and entertainment,” chief infotainment officer Phil Abram says. “In fact, it is an expected feature.”

Can anyone turn streaming music into a real business?

Can anyone turn streaming music into a real business? | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it

Six years later, everything in the music and technology industries is pushing toward digital streaming. Last year, music-related startups received $619.3 million in new investment. Spotify has more than five million paying subscribers, proving that customers will pay rather than pirate every month for a rich library of music if it's inexpensive and available everywhere. (Later this year, Spotify will offer free, ad-supported music on mobile devices in all of its markets.) Soundcloud, the leader in user-created embedded audio, just simplified its paid, pro, and premium partnership tiers for heavy users, music labels, and brands. Google wants to start a music subscription service in the second half of this year, trading on its strong positions with both Android and YouTube. Hardware upstart Beats Electronics is building its own streaming service, Daisy, using just-acquired Mog as its backbone. Even Apple is finally embracing streaming in principle, negotiating royalty rates with music rights owners to add a new, complimentary service to its iTunes Store.

The future of #radio in car as seen by Ford. 'Broadcasters can’t take their place in the dashboard for granted' says NAB CEO | Jacoblog

The future of #radio in car as seen by Ford. 'Broadcasters can’t take their place in the dashboard for granted' says NAB CEO | Jacoblog | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it

It is hard to believe that in some circles, there’s a raging debate…about all the wrong things.

Are digital futurists falsely predicting the doom of radio?

Are automakers conspiring to eliminate AM/FM radio from their “center stacks?”

Do we really need to be streaming?

Are young people abandoning radio in favor of new media technologies?

And on it goes.

In radio, these are issues akin to gun control, immigration, and the budget deficit – too complicated to take on in this space.

But for one of them – the future of radio in vehicles – there is no better source than to go to one of the fathers of Ford SYNC – Julius Marchwicki – for his insights about the relationship between the automakers and radio.

Radio World’s  Leslie Stimson did just that last month when she interviewed Marchwicki, Ford’s global product manager for Sync AppLink.

So, what’s his take on radio and apps?

“When I think of radio, I think of an easy way to access localized content for any reason anywhere in the world. That content can be anything. It’s music, it’s news, it’s all sorts of things…Today, the age of the Internet and mobile phones as data connectivity has brought us to a world where I can access any radio station anywhere in the world anytime; and I personally think that’s fantastic. … Now we’re entering a world of applications and a world of data connectivity everywhere.”

...

 

As NAB CEO Gordon Smith clearly noted early in his keynote address, the “connected car” is a big topic for radio – today and in the future:

“Not too long ago some within our own industry raised the question of whether radio, specifically, was on the verge of being pushed out of the automobile.  I think consumers and the leaders in Detroit said it best with a resounding no!  But it is a good reminder that broadcasters can’t take their place in the dashboard for granted…we must continue to innovate and provide the content listeners want on many different platforms.  We must keep our eyes focused on the new doors that open before us.  The danger for any business that becomes complacent is its being left behind.”

Spotify imagines a world with a billion users, healthily-paid musicians, and a scaled-out business model that makes sense.  But right now, that isn't the reality, and it may never be the reality with music alone.  Which is also why Spotify is plotting an expansion into video, and a move into Netflix territory.

Except now there's a twist, because struggling Spotify competitor Rdio has just beaten Spotify to the punch.

All about the Multiplaform Radio presentation of James O'Brien from ABC Austalia at Radio Days Europe 2013

All about the Multiplaform Radio presentation of James O'Brien from ABC Austalia at Radio Days Europe 2013 | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it

This is the presentation I made at Radio Days Europe, March 18, 2013 as part of a session on pop up radio stations. The slide you can see behind you now is a snapshot of the homepage of ABC Radio Australia.

But today I’ll be telling you a little about just one of the stations the ABC operates....

The word of the year is definitely “pop up” – pop up shops, pop up galleries, pop up restaurants, and so on, and ABC Extra is a pop-up station. I’d estimate it’s operational for about half the year, and the rest of the time it’s dead. But when it’s up and running, the ABC is using ABC Extra to push the creative boundaries of radio, and hopefully connect with our audiences, and with new audiences, in ways we can’t otherwise do with our mainstream local and national networks. You know how sometimes you have a great idea, but then reality sets in, or your manager says “no”, and suddenly you realise there’s no airtime available for your great idea? Well, that’s what ABC Extra is all about...

Radios Ripped from New Cars? “Not So Fast,” say Consumers

Radios Ripped from New Cars? “Not So Fast,” say Consumers | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it

You can climb down from the ceiling now, Mr. Broadcaster – it turns out new cars will feature FM/AM radios built-in for the foreseeable future (although certainly not forever).

The logic of this should be obvious to us all, but particularly obvious for anyone who bothers to talk with consumers.

And I did.

Between March 9 and March 10 2013, I fielded a random, balanced, national online study of 1,000 consumers and asked how they feel about those radios in their cars – and how they’d feel if they disappeared...

 

The disruption is happening and it is bound to accelerate.  But we will not wake up tomorrow and discover new cars with no radios. Indeed, the problem is that those new cars will be full to the brim with entertainment choices galore.
