"Jungala Radio": Calais' first radio station run by refugees | Newsweek | Radio resources | Scoop.it

British graduate Ciaran Henry and Irish fundraiser Kathy O'Hare are trying to lighten the mood for those trying to reach Britain with Calais' very first radio station—Jungala Radio—run solely by refugees. At the Jungle Book Library, a community center in the heart of the camp, Henry trains a group of 10 refugees to interview, record and edit their own podcasts for the station, while O'Hare fundraises for the cause from her home in Cork, Ireland.

Every true supporter knows that football is best on the radio

Every true supporter knows that football is best on the radio | Radio resources | Scoop.it

Never before has it been so expensive to be a sports fan. Nor has it ever been more difficult – either financially or logistically – to watch sport from inside a physical stadium. The de facto next-best alternative has become television. I think it should be radio.

I fell in love with radio sport around 1995, aged 11, when I got my first portable radio. Bed-time in 1995 was early - too early - so I used that little radio to stay up later. Under cover of darkness, I listened to comedy on tape; to John Peel and Steve Lamacq; to random talk radio stations, and to football.

Before The Internet, Librarians Would 'Answer Everything' -- And Still Do | North Country Public Radio

Before The Internet, Librarians Would 'Answer Everything' -- And Still Do | North Country Public Radio | Radio resources | Scoop.it

Before Google there was — that paragon of accuracy and calm — the librarian. The New York Public Library recently came upon a box of questions posed to the library from the 1940s to the '80s — a time capsule from an era when humans consulted other humans for answers to their daily questions and conundrums.

Here's one salacious example: "I went to a New Year's Eve Party and unexpectedly stayed over. I don't really know the hosts. Ought I to send a thank-you note?" asked a "somewhat uncertain female voice" during a mid-afternoon telephone call on New Year's Day, 1967.

Other patrons inquired about the life cycle of an eyebrow hair, how many neurotic people were in the United States, the name of Napoleon's horse, and just how do you put up wallpaper? As one patron tells the librarian over the phone: "I have the paper; I have the paste. What do I do next? Does the paste go on the wall or the paper?"

The NYPL will be sharing these questions from the archive every Monday on its Instagram account with the hashtag: #letmelibrarianthatforyou.

Librarian Rosa Caballero-Li says that today, more than 100 questions still come into the NYPL's Reference and Research Services desk every 24 hours. It's not just fact checking — it's questions of etiquette, opinion, contact information, even shopping.

We’re Not in the Podcasting Renaissance. We’re in the Age of Discovery.

The industry is still grappling with some very basic questions about how to reach new listeners and improve content discovery for existing listeners. While content becomes more sophisticated, the delivery of that content has seen only incremental improvements. And solutions don’t come from a few shows going viral.

Heavy viewers and listeners are often considered the ‘super fans’ of the media ecosystem. These power users devote significant hours of their lives to one medium or another and are the most likely to consistently engage with content and advertising found on those channels.
