I don't know how to say no to coffee dates with strangers - media job

I have a job in radio and an on-air persona that invites interaction from our audience. Nice for the station, not so great for me. I have to be polite but firm in cutting people off, but I suck at it. Help? [more inside]

US equivalent of Desert Island Discs?

Please help me identify a program I heard on US public radio in the late eighties or early nineties. The choreographer Mark Morris brought some of his favorite records to play and discuss. A search for his name on the BBC Desert Island Discs site returns no results, so this must have been a different program with the same concept. TIA, hivemind!

Which Selling Platform is Best?

I am working on a list since 2004 that I think would be salable. It's publicly available contact information for radio, TV, magazines, syndicates, newspapers, book publishers and agents. I'm a freelancer and I originally started it because I wanted to be able to reach these sources to interest them in my content. But I realized it could be a product. [more inside]

A longform article about morning radio show hosts' conference

Some time in the past 10 years, but likely in 2005-2008, I read a long magazine article that I'd like to find again. The reporter hung around a conference, or convention, of morning zoo radio show hosts. Discussions revolved around stunts and gimmicks, how to deal with the early hours while being consistently fake & peppy, and the like. I seem to recall the author noted the number of Hawaiian shirts present and how male-dominated the scene was. The conference was a huge party, but with some depressed-seeming attendees. This article might've been from Esquire, GQ, or Rolling Stone. I might have seen it on MetaFilter, even! It was not an Onion article. Googling this is proving incredibly challenging.

Bob Lassiter links from WFMU or other?

Six or so years ago, WFMU had the greatest bunch of links on the late great Bob Lassiter. I am not finding them around the web except some random YouTube vids. Bob Lassiter Airchecks was using Megaupload so currently look to be in limbo. They really cheered me up to no end and I would love to hear them again. If anyone has a hotspot of where many would be, I would love to know.

Calling the transmitter

I briefly worked an early-morning shift at a college radio station in the late 90s. One of the first things I had to do was call a number, listen to an automated voice read out a series of numbers (which I vaguely remember as being related in some way to the transmitter), and write them down into a logbook. Three-part question: what was I doing, is this still done today, and where, if anywhere, can I hear that voice again?

What interesting use can I make of two old handheld radios?

I have two old Radio Shack handheld radios. They were purchased in the US, originally for communication on the ski slopes. On the back, there is a number "09A06" and it also says CAT NO 21-1936. I was about to throw them away, but would rather repurpose them for something. I live in a large metropolitan area, in an apartment. I am good at programming and am comfortable using something like an Arduino, Rasberry Pi, BeagleBone, etc. What interesting hack can I use these for?

another "name this song" question

I just heard this rock song on the radio driving by Tacoma WA tonight. Supposedly it's by a band named Cruella (sp?) with a girl singing and some instrumental sections with heavy guitar. Would anyone have any idea what song this might be? I was going to google one line of the lyrics but forgot what it is already. Thanks!

Looking for a device that plays music when it turns on (automatically)

Wanted: a device that places continuous sounds (music, random noise, mp3s) when it is plugged in. Most devices these days require you to plug it in to the wall AND push a button to turn it on. Goal: I want to make my place less attractive to daytime burglars. I live in a small apartment in a complex where everyone (literally) is at work during the day, and there are daytime burglars who use bump keys. I've already thought through door alarms, etc - but I'm looking for something passive and low effort by me. My idea is to buy a timer with random on/off, and connect a device to it that plays household-like noises. But everything I can think of requires you to turn it on manually (probably for energy saving.) I'm not looking for a PC based solution - want an appliance like device. Like radios from the old days - but ideally with music I can preprogram. Any ideas?

Why do we use "radio station" and "TV channel"?

I know that we have TV stations, actual buildings where the broadcast originates, and if you're not getting a clear signal on a radio frequency you might say "try another channel" on a walkie-talkie. But when it comes to the device in your home and you want to alter the signal coming in, you "change the channel" on the TV and you "change the station" on the radio. Why these terms for these devices?

Madison needs more rest

How many Sirius XM shows are prerecorded repeats? I'm a big fan of Sirius DJ Madison, for example, who has a show on First Wave weekdays 9 a.m.-3 p.m. but also is on Alt Nation 6 p.m.-midnight. While I heart Madison, I really hope she's not working 12-hour days. How much of that time is actually live radio?

What is it like to call NPR?

What happens when you call a radio show like NPR's "Talk of the Nation?" What does the screener ask you? Do you give a summary of your statement? What if they don't like it - do they reject you? What do they say? Do you have to wait a long time? Is it hard to get through? How do they pick who gets on the show?

Where is radio news guy Bill Crowley working these days?

Where is Bill Crowley -- former WCBS, WINS, and Air America Radio news guy -- working these days? I always admired Bill Crowley's ability to keep his head in the midst of madness, but I've lost track of him since Air America Radio shut down its news division. Given his long career in radio, he's kind of an unheralded treasure. I'd really like to know what he's up to these days, and to find a way to hear his voice again if possible.
