Also one of the on-air resident DJs, Freedom represents the unique person on our team who works
to manage the day-to-day business of the station, but is also one of the providers of great music featured on a number of
shows you'll hear whenever you listen. He has taken this station from a good idea to a now fully-operational (though
still very virtual) Internet radio station. Everyone on the team-from the DJs to the Assistant Directors of Programming-all
reflect his committment to making this station stand out from the hundreds and thousands of faceless (and generally staffless)
entities, and his participation in every area of the station's operation insures a listening experience that always educates
as it entertains.
Assistant Music Director
Jeff is one of four (4) Assistant Music Direcotrs responsible
for every song that DJs play on our station (the others are still pending) and is responsible for reviewing and
selecting music that represents the tastes and trends in the Spin Radio FM listening community. He is responsible
for getting feedback from the music played by DJs and various show hosts to the Assistant Program Director and the Station
Artist And Repertoire (A&R) Director
As the station's A&R
Director, Benny brings years of experience working in a similar capacity as he has at a number of record companies. In
addition to working directly with recording artists who submit materials to our station for airplay, he also
works with various management team members in reviewing models, talk show talent and various other personalities
who may be featured on shows and at live broadcasts. He'll also be working with the Station Manager and various members
of the managment team to develop our promotional compilations featuring show-driven themes, as well as regular releases
of mixed compilations.
The DJs (listed by name on a soon-to-be added page)
Each of the DJs (formally Disk Jockeys) has one of the most important roles in the running of our station. They are
responsible for delivery of the musical content heard 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, in a majority of our shows. Each DJ generally
creates the mixes for his/her own show, decides how to format the show, and is the center of most live broadcasts musically.
DJs work with the Assistant Music Directors to select music (where applicable), the Assistant Program Director to determine
slot times and possibly change shows and even show themes, and some choreograph hosts and personalities into their shows.
The Show Hosts
Note: We'll be adding a page with descriptions
of our show hosts shortly.)
Show hosts, also known as personalities, compliment the DJs as an additional feature of certain
shows. They range from comedians and singers, to seasoned radio veterans and even DJs. The Show Host is responsible for giving
a show personality; if there is a “roundtable” discussion, the Show Host may then act as more of a mediator. In
live party broadcast situations, the Show Host is in the backround, assisting the DJ in an emcee capacity. While most Show
Hosts are simply there to give the show a personality, some Show Hosts are more involved in production and programming aspects
of their show(s).
Assistant Program Director
As the person you can always count on to get things done, Greg has, in our short existence, proven to be a great asset
to the Spin Radio FM team. His duties
are to assist in the development of each show, as well as making sure they run smoothly from day to day.
Keeping the internal aspects of Spin Radio FM intact, Shugaree works with the Station Manager to insure day-to-day operations
run smoothly. These duties
include contacting staff members about meetings, following up on meeting initiatives, assisting with staff recruiting
and helping out at live broadcasting events.
Working closely with the Station Manager and the
Assistant Program Director, Ely is responsible for coming up with promotion solutions for Spin Radio FM. Communicating ideas
and immplementing them are his primary initiatives. He also assists in developing plans for reaching genre-focused sponsors,
and creating and strengthening partnerships with entertainment-friendly businesses.
Mr. Noah Rothman is the Station Consultant. His
role isn't the same as other management team members, in that he is not active in the day-to-day runnings of Spin Radio FM,
yet he is very important to some of the station's "image and idea shaping." Mr. Rothman deals mainly with the Station
Manager, but may also occasionally interact with other members of the management team, as well as the staff in general.
(this site) Peter Kravsky & Nicole Belgrave (our soon-to-be-launched site)
Though they didn't work on the website you are currnetly viewing, Peter and
Nicole are working on Spin Radio FM's web presence. They are responsible for developing the "look of our sound." They
bring our ideas, information, music, promotions, etc. to light by putting it all together so that everything
makes visual sense.
The foundation of Spin Radio FM is its DJs. They are the reason we exist, and raise the bar for what radio should be
about. For that matter, what good dance music should sound like. All are from NYC except where noted.
