Live365 Broadcaster Council

Friday, September 24, 2004
I have been elected to the Live365 Broadcaster Council. Cool.

The following was the "self-nomination" statement I submitted to get on tha ballot:

Dear Sir,

I am a founding member of Live365. I have been involved with radio programming for more than 20 years, as a disc jockey at the UCLA campus radio station (KLA), as a freelance club and party DJ, and as an assistant producer for the "Love Songs on the Coast" program at KOST 103.5FM in Los Angeles from 1987 to 1997. I am a regular reader and subscriber to radio and music industry publications (Billboard, Radio & Records, The Gavin Report, LARadio.com) since the 1980s, and have seen the radio broadcast industry evolve from the innocent "mom and pop" ownership playing vinyl records to the corporate-controlled cookie-cutter stations playing nothing but commercials and the same 10 songs day in and day out.

I have been broadcasting extensively in the Live/Relay mode. My expertise is in complex radio programming. The music is programmed using the ASQ feature in SAM. (I have used SAM v 2 but now I am back to v 1.) SAM then routes the music to WinAMP (Ver 5.) which streams to the Live365 server (56kbps) through my home DSL line. Programming-wise, I use a 7-day, 24-hour clock, which allow me to do things like "Love Songs at Night" and "All-80's Weekend" type shows. I purchased custom jingle packages to make the station sound more professional.

I have unique professional experiences and knowledge that, I believe, can contribute to the Live365 community. I am well-aware of the history and issues facing the industry. I want to see Live365 in every home, every car, every iPod.

Very truly yours,

Carl (steppermc)
PD/MD, Sleepy Cat Records
