The Radio Academy?s decision to revamp their Speech Radio and Music Radio Conferences this year has proved to be a massive success with the daytime event being completely sold out.
?We are delighted with the response we?ve had. There is a large list of people missing out because they did not register early enough, which just goes to prove that the interest in Academy events is as strong as ever.? Said John Bradford, the Director of the Radio Academy.
This year the event became one single new event, Production 06, offering direct hands on advice on delivering better programming right now. A team chaired by Mark Story, have devised a fantastic programme, hosted by Richard Bacon and Jane Garvey, with sessions from Valerie Geller & James O’Brien (LBC 97.3 FM) Sandy Beech (Music4), Ben Cooper (BBC Radio One), Mark Story (Emap), John Pickford (Key 103FM), Dirk Anthony (GCap Media plc), John Simons (GMG Radio), Clive Dickens (Absolute Radio), Christian O’Connell (Virgin Radio), Paul Jackson (Virgin Radio), Danny Baker (BBC London) amongst others.
