RAIN 8/5: Attend RAIN Summit East free when registering for RAB/NAB Radio Show via RAIN
RAIN, RAB/NAB OFFER “TWO SHOWS FOR ONE” FOR RADIO SHOW ATTENDEESRAIN readers can now take advantage of a special “two shows for one” offer and attend next month’s RAIN Summit East event in Washington, D.C. free by registering for the RAB/NAB Radio Show.
The second-annual RAIN Summit East takes place on Tuesday, September 28th, one day before the start of the RAB/NAB conference (the Summit is an official co-located event of the RAB/NAB Radio Show), at Washington’s Grand Hyatt Hotel.
To take advantage of the offer, you must register for the RAB/NAB Radio Show online via the special link here or from our RAIN Summit East page here. (You can, of course, still register to attend only the RAIN event from the RAIN Summit East page.)
In addition to the regular slate of engaging speakers and panels, the Summit will feature the presentation of the very first RAIN Internet Radio Awards. And, as announced yesterday, the RAIN Reader Cocktail Party following the Summit will be sponsored by the law firm Davis Wright Tremaine, and will take place on the roof of their swank new downtown D.C. office.
Again, to take advantage of the “two shows for one” offer and attend the RAIN Summit East free, register for the RAB/NAB Radio Show here or from our RAIN Summit East page here. This offer is only available through RAIN (i.e. the package isn’t offered on the Radio Show website).
SONGZA RETURNS AS “COLLABORATIVE” CUSTOMIZED NET RADIOThe streaming music service Songza has returned (in beta) as a platform for listeners to collaboratively create Internet radio stations. A company press release says, “Songza.com gives users the ability to collaborate with friends, family, co-workers or even strangers to create the perfect shared station for any occasion, with a library of over 8,000,000 songs to choose from.” Songza originally launched in 2007 as a search engine that allowed consumers to find music online for on-demand and playlist-based listening. Songza says the new non-interactive radio service is DMCA compliant and ad-supported, and will soon offer mobile apps.

DIGITAL LISTENING SHARE STILL GROWING IN UKUK radio listening via digital platforms continues to grow, while listening via mobile phones remains steady, says RAJAR, which announced its 2010 2nd Quarter study this week. The share of radio listening that’s done via a digital platform rose 17% to 24.6% (from 21.1% in Q2, 2009). DAB’s (their HD Radio counterpart) share is up 20% to 15.8%. Internet radio listening rose an impressive 33%, but that increase is from a not-as-impressive 3.6% to 4.1% share. 12.5% of adults aged 15+ in Q2, 2010 say they have listened to radio via their mobile phone.
