RAIN 7/16: Steve Dahl, John Gehron, and more at RAIN Summit at the Conclave tomorrow

Posted on: 07/16/2010

RAIN UPDATE: SUMMIT COCKTAIL PARTY WILL BE AT COOPER PUB & RESTAURANT

The first-ever RAIN Summit Midwest tomorrow in Minneapolis will be capped off by one of our famous RAIN Cocktail Parties. The party will take place at Cooper Pub & Restaurant (more info here), conveniently located kitty-corner the Doubletree Park Place Hotel where the Summit takes place.

So after the Summit ends around 5pm (according to our agenda, found here), we’ll all take a stroll over to the pub for the Cocktail Party. At the bar you’ll have to buy your own drinks, but RAIN will provide plenty of appetizers! We hope you’ll join us!

There’s still limited space available at RAIN Summit Midwest, so be sure to register soon.

LIMITED SPACE STILL AVAILABLE FOR FIRST-EVER RAIN SUMMIT MIDWEST

Tomorrow, July 17, at 1:30pm the first-ever RAIN Summit Midwest gets underway. It will take place at the Conclave Learning Conference in the Doubletree Park Place Hotel in Minneapolis.

Steve Dahl, the legendary Chicago broadcaster-turned-podcaster, will keynote the event. Dahl will be joined by veteran broadcasters such as AccuRadio COO John Gehron and Cox Media Group’s Gregg Lindahl.

Coleman Insights president/COO Warren Kurtzman will present a preview of “Secrets of Streaming Audio Success,” a new national research study that covers how people use streaming audio, that strength of streaming brands and more. The study’s results will be revealed in full at RAIN Summit East in Washington D.C. this fall.

That’s just a glimpse of the afternoon’s agenda, which you can find in full here.

You can still register to attend RAIN Summit Midwest here. RAIN Summit Midwest is being produced in association with the Conclave with sponsorship support from AllAccess.com and Coleman Insights. We hope to see you there!

CC POINTS TO INTERNET COMPETITION IN FCC BID TO BUY MORE STATIONS

Competition from satellite and Internet radio has “axiomatically reduce[d] radio broadcasters’ share of the market,” writes Clear Channel to the FCC. The media giant is trying to convince the FCC to loosen ownership restrictions, according to Ars Technica, by pointing to the “robust competitors” broadcasting via satellite and the Internet.

Clear Channel may have a point, Ars Technica writes, when you look at stats that show Internet radio’s increasing popularity. That said, “the irony of Clear Channel’s filing, however, is that while the company emphasizes the increasing power of the Internet, its urgent call for a relaxation of the FCC’s radio station ownership rules suggests that these old-school radio licenses are still very valuable.” Find more coverage from Ars Technica here.

SUBARU ADDS IN-CAR WI-FI OPTION TO 2011 OUTBACK

Another day, another car-maker offering in-car Internet access. Today Subaru has announced that in-car wireless Internet will be an option in 2011 Outback models. The service is provided by Autonet and costs $500 to install plus $30 a month. CNet notes (here) that one of the “few areas” that makes in-car Internet access worthwhile is, you guessed it, Internet radio.
