Two brand new UK station customs...er...
  • Well, that doesn't happen very often these days :^)

    1) reelworld for the "Country" station - sounds like the exact same as RW-USA have been churning out for 20-odd years. Not impressed.
    Was reelworld-UK/Europe involved at all? We know that THEY can DO a fresher sound that this tired half-vocodered stuff.

    2) WiseBuddah (or is it now Wisebuddah?) for Bauer's "Hits Radio".
    A new logo "unique to the UK"? Really?
    Last 3 notes sound awfy like that on Original 106 and many others, i.e. simple note progression rather than "melody" as such
    and the same now-wornout hackneyed "3-stacatto-thumps" at the end instead of a smoother-flowing chord structure.

    Sadly, disappointed that any "imagination" in jingle production for the UK now has spiralled-in to just the same-old, same-old
    formulaic stuff thats been regurgitated for a number of years now.

    Still, soon be just "BBC plus 2 commercial competitors" so any variety of radio choice shrinking rapidly - and I'll be sticking
    with the Beeb - especially if Craig Charles on Radio 2 can get away with playing the Barry Gray Orchestra "Joe90" AND "Thunderbirds"
    1960s TV theme music at 5 o'clock on a Monday afternoon! Good radio is NOT dead!
    :^)
  • You're pushing on an open door there Iain.

    I prefer what Reelworld have done for Downtown Country:

    The Country Hits package is like their presenters, style over content. Everyone looks great !

    The Country Hits package sounds a lot like their "Fuzion" country package, just with a bit more of the heavily autotuned "singing". Definitely style over substance, but I guess that's what the bean counters want. I much prefer TM's EVO Hot Country package, it sounds young and energetic, but still very musical.
