Barlow booked for Production 08

The Radio Academy's annual radio production event has secured the services of Take That singer Gary Barlow. He will be in conversation with Virgin Radio's Christian O'Connell at the Indig02 in London on Tuesday 15th April, from 6pm.

Production 08 will put the focus back on making radio – making it sound better, making it engage more people and making it more competitive in a multi-media world.

Among sessions already confirmed, Radio 2’s Mark Radcliffe gives Trevor Dann the presenter’s perspective on what makes a good producer and vice-versa, Real Radio's Jay Crawford tells David Lloyd how to take your station to No.1, Karen Pearson reveals some of the New Voices & New Noises in radio worldwide, Scott Solder explains how to get the most out of every link and The Guardian’s Matt Wells takes us on a tour of the potentials of podcasting.

Following the all-day conference and workshops IndigO2 will host the annual Celebration of Music Radio with live music and the presentations of the Scott Piering Award, the John Peel Award, the National Pluggers Award, the Regional Pluggers Award and the Lifetime Achievement Award. Tickets are available for the conference only, the evening event only or for both via the Radio Academy [link=]website[/link].

Sponsors for the event have been confirmed as Global Traffic Network UK. Head of Radio Anthony Rudd says that being associated with Production 08 is a great fit: “Production 08 is all about returning to making great radio and that’s what Global Traffic Network is all about as well. We concentrate on doing one part of radio really, really well, and creating a fantastic business deal with the station or group. We use aircraft and top-quality sensor data to gather the best information, and broadcast it using great, experienced reporters.

Trevor Dann, Director of the Radio Academy, welcomes GTN’s sponsorship: “We are delighted to welcome Global Traffic Network as a patron of the Radio Academy and sponsor of this event. The future of our industry depends on high-quality programming. GTN are dedicated to that objective and it’s good to see them investing in the UK radio industry as a whole”.
