Up late in Barcelona

Late nights and long days – blogging from Barcelona continues as our reporter Dan Harper mingles with delegates from around Europe and beyond. In his latest report, Francie Currie, Jason Bryant and gossip we just can't share!

[blockquote]Up until 3.40am in the hotel bar last night, ended up talking to Sandy Beech and Jonathan Miles who were reminiscing about their days at Radio Luxembourg. Jonathan also told me he is looking forward to starting at BBC Radio Newcastle when he gets back. He is at the NAB to present the European Radio Awards. I will have the winners list later tonight, so watch this space to find out who's won before anyone else.

Had dinner with Dave Shearer, Rick Houghton and Paul Hollins yesterday. Lots of North West Radio talk which I would love to tell you about but cant afford the court case.

Also had a good chat with my format boss at Talk Radio Jason Bryant, he now owns Town and Country Group (which I am the group voice for).

There was a good session this morning on Radio in emerging markets. One speaker from Moscow station Relax FM said he got rid of all his presenters and doesn't even do news anymore. He says this brought him a massive surge of new listeners. Lets hope that idea doesn't spread to our little Island, or we will all be back at Hospital Radio.

I enjoyed Francis Currie's talk on Rhythmic AC. He's just left Heart and told me he's planning on becoming a full time consultant. "Another one?" I here you say, well he certainly had some interesting ideas which my friends from Jordanian Radio could put into practice.

I will be back later tonight after the awards thing, so until then![/blockquote]
