*We’re back home from this year’s Radio Show in Dallas, and if we had to come up with a one-word description of what we noticed this time around, the word would be “realistic.”

No, not the old Radio Shack capital-R brand name from just down the road in Fort Worth (though we enjoyed seeing the “Tandy Corp. Studio” plaque when we visited public radio KERA, one of many Texas tours you’ll see soon on Site of the Week) – our takeaway from the events at the Hilton Anatole was a lower-case “r” realism about the state of the industry as we head into the 2020s.

Read on for some thoughts – and the rest of the week’s news…

We have a great lineup of podcasts here on our site. While you’re catching up with your summer reading, don’t forget about your summer listening. Now is the time to make sure you’re up to date with Top of the Tower.

Our latest one features Donna Halper discussing her life in radio, from her time at WMMS when she helped Rush get US airplay, to what she learned from Arnie “Woo Woo” Ginsburg.

Don’t forget you can still visit our store to check out our other great products. We’ll be taking preorders for the 2021 calendar soon. Stay tuned!
