Replacement receiver for my Honda Pilot 2008. How do I begin?

I'd like bluetooth to connect my phones to it and the standard built-in one doesn't offer that. I've taken it apart to add a 3rd party AUX but that only worked for about 6 months so now I've decided to replace it all but how? When I look it mentions you need adapter cables and such? There seems to be no one-stop shop. Anyone suggest a working combo? [more inside]

Kid-safe news radio needed

I need to find some past news radio segments that 1) are available online, 2) will play continuously for 45-60 minutes, 3) involve no discussion AT ALL of sexual assault or any bad things happening to children, and 4) preferably would not be perceived by a religious conservative as having a strong liberal bent. I've been skimming through NPR's Morning Edition online archives but with all of the migrant crisis news it's hard to find something that I can be reasonably sure would not discuss bad things happening to children. Any ideas? Maybe a past episode of an NPR show that you know meets these criteria, or a kid-safe news program?

Help with Freelance Audio Production Rates

I have been asked to produce audio for a business. The audio will likely be a :30 second commercial for radio, although the client is also interested in me creating audio content for their website. Is there a freelance scale for audio production rates that either includes the costs of pre-production, production and post-production or breaks out individual charges for consulting, idea development, scriptwriting, narration, adding music and/or SFX and editing?

AntennaFilter: What's this antenna for?

Leaving the phone downstairs

GadgetFilter: I no longer wish to use my phone as my alarm clock or music controller at night. I would like a wifi radio that will play Pandora & Spotify, has a sleep timer, and an alarm function - and that's it. My phone will remain downstairs. I want to be able to control the sleep timer and music from this device not my phone or ipod or anything else. [more inside]

Name my radio show!

OK, we have a low-power community radio station starting up, and even though doing radio was never on my bucket list, it's such an exciting project (and group of people) that I've decided to get a show while there are still open slots in the schedule. The only problem is that I can't settle on a good name, and it's really important to me that I have one that works. [more inside]

Are Public Radio Fund Drives Actually "Working"?

Does anyone know about the success rate of public radio fund drives? During the last cycle in October, a local public radio station missed its target at the end of its drive by almost 30%. Yet, everybody keeps saying fund drives "are working". Where can I find data that says if that's true or not?

Freelancing for Dollars

I want to know what the market is for freelance reporters to sell their ability to do stories to radio stations across the country (or maybe in general). I don't know what a reporter might charge for freelancing the reporting, producing, writing and voicing of a story or what would compel a station to hire them And does there exist a collective or consortium of freelancers who have managed to turn that into a business model, like a narrowly focused employment agency or maybe even a talent agency. Does anybody know where I can find data on both?

Are there country-western nostalgia radio stations? How common are they

Rock and pop music have their nostalgia radio stations - your "golden oldies", classic rock, all 80's, etc., stations - and plenty of them. What about country western music? I'm sure such stations exist (and this is something I could easily check), since there are stations for pretty much everything, but I'm also curious to know how common they are. Also, are there different nostalgia categories for it, e.g. 50's and 60's, 80's and on, etc.?

What do you listen to on your amateur radio or scanner?

Having just earned my amateur radio license, I've purchased a handheld transceiver with decent wide-band coverage and I'm trying to figure out what I should program into it. I've added the nearest repeaters on my licensed bands, but what's worthwhile to add next? What else do people program on their mobiles, HTs, and scanners? I'd like to find active and interesting channels to monitor when I'm not conversing with someone myself. [more inside]

Do Public Broadcasting Stations Keep ALL Public Comments

During fund drives, I'm always told the positive comments of listeners who support the mission of public broadcasting and the drives that pays for the public radio and TV stations to operate. But I recently heard a public radio volunteer say he thinks public TV gets up to 40% negative comments and public radio gets about 10% negative comments. [more inside]

Looking for spacecraft/radiosonde data sounds

I collect radio sounds, with the eventual intention of publishing a curated list and, possibly, making music based around that collection. I have a fair amount of space-based sounds, but I'd really like to find the 'actual sound' of spacecraft radio - in other words, what you'd hear if you could listen to the baseband after AM or FM demodulation (even if they're not AM/FM signals) but before decoding.

70s radio mashup question

What were these called (if indeed they were called something), and where can I find out more about them? (Note that the video here has been retrofitted onto a 70s radio single.) I loved them as a 70s kid (they were pretty popular for a couple of years), and now I find them adorably stupid and kind of fascinating for some reason. Certainly not because they are clever.
