Update on our activities
Listeners are now invited to sign in – just once - with an email address, so that we can make the service more relevant and personal. As a result of the sign-in we know who's listening: something which is not possible under DAB transmission. It’s interesting to note that BBC iPlayer now also requires sign in, and Tony Hall is on record as saying that he sees the BBC’s future online.
Our weekly newsletter goes out each Tuesday morning. It contains easy access podcast links to the week’s fresh programming, and editorial comment. If you’re not receiving it, please sign in for audio access – live or podcast - via our Share Radio website or apps, and ‘tick’ the newsletter box: this is a newsletter worth receiving!
Share Radio is promoted on social media, and we welcome any opportunity to place a widget link on other websites.
Our own website is actively used and maintained, and includes both schedule and programme details. The podcast section, containing an archive of nearly 6,000 programmes, is in frequent use and attracts c. 29% of new sign ins (39% of people signing in first access Share Radio via ‘Listen Live’ and 30% via our Apps).
Fresh programme content is really good: here's some samples - from Simon Rose – ‘The Bigger Picture’ (our political round-up), ‘The Week That Was and The Week Ahead’ (UK markets), ‘Gadgets and Gizmos’ and the ‘Business of Film’. Georgie Frost presents the ‘This Is Money’ show with their editor, Simon Lambert. We've also new programmes from Nigel Cassidy (‘Dealing with Divorce’) and Ed Bowsher (market comment), Jonathan Davis’s ‘Talking Money’ with fund managers, the Institute of Economic Affairs, Sue Dougan’s ‘Track Record’ and ‘Motley Fool’.
We provide news on the hour and half-hour: both general and business bulletins. The ads following these are set elsewhere, but we can introduce you to that wider radio audience if you're interested.
We've established a new audiobook production agreement with Harriman House and launched our first audiobook ‘Superinvestors’, from which we are now streaming a chapter each week (of 20 in total), both to provide audio content and to encourage sales. Here's a link to the audio sampler and to Order Superinvestors. Please let us know if you'd like to produce an audiobook with us.
The scheduling gap we’d most like to fill is a daily current affairs or market round-up show, either morning (eg 7-9 am) or evening (5-7pm). The problem is that these are also the most expensive editorial slots to fill, and we cannot re-introduce the Breakfast Show or Market Wrap without first arranging the finance. If you'd like to work with us to explore how this could happen, please get in touch. If this were to be a possibility, we’d be happy to stream it elsewhere as required, and/or to arrange distribution through other radio stations.
