With Daniel ‘ Leachy’ Leach 92:9 morning announcer moving to anchor the rush hour ,and afternoon announcer Westo returning to 6ix.Angie Ayres has moved up from Bunbury a few weeks ago to host the afternoon shift so that still leaves the morning announcer to be filled any ideas who will get the job?
Ross Edwards - he started about 3 weeks ago.
Is Ross still music director Triple M in Perth?
I thought Ross Edwards was just filling in as he’s been Music director at triple M for the last 3 years.
It’s not uncommon for the on air talent to have multiple roles. Elissa on Mix94.5 is the music director and mornings announcer.
Agree, the bigger stations like in Sydney or Melbourne are likely to have staff with off air roles with a smaller (eg. floater) or no on air role at all. But regional stations will probably have the same person doing 2 or 3 different roles.
A caller about female entrapment of males for pregnancy led Luke Bona to looking for the song by Heart, All I want to do is make love to you from 1990.
Luke couldn’t find the song on 2MMM playlist, sourced from Youtube.
Of course on the many regional Triple M stations that have formats not befitting of the rock brand, that song would get a run?
That surprised me it wasn’t in their database somewhere… i would have thought they’d have thousands of songs at hand, even if it wasn’t part of their regular playlist.
Playing it off YouTube just sounds a bit unprofessional.
I’d guess Luke (or his producer) didn’t have enough rights in Zetta to play a song beyond the standard metro playlist. I wonder if that’s a thing in Zetta!
Sure is, and common.
User often only has access to songs activated on certain stations, and usually if a song isn’t in active rotation, it’ll be ‘unactivated’ from the station and you’ll need to look in All Songs or a Master/Network library (which not everyone always has permission for).
if it works it works! youtube doesnt have the worst sound quality on the planet
The quality is a bit variable though… if they at least used Spotify or Apple Music, you know it’s a high quality professionally encoded 256kbps audio track.
considering their dab and streaming is 32kbps, dont think many noticed
But if you use a lower quality audio source in the first place, that would get compressed further again. Anyway…
When does Marty Sheargold’s contract end? Any news if he’ll be returning this year?
Only a couple of weeks left so I doubt it.
It sounded like it was a spur of the moment thing so he must’ve just gone to YouTube as it was the quickest.
I was surprised myself given that I have heard it before on triple M. Interesting how the library works on Zetta.
Listen back to the audio when it happened, may not have been YouTube this time. Has been used before.
Why are they still referring to it as “The Marty Sheargold Show” when Lehmo is hosting now?
