THE BROADCAST RADIO MASTER CLASS [MARCH 2017 EDITION] RECAP…

I had an awesome time speaking on Podcasting at The Broadcast Radio Master Class [March 2017 Edition] put together by my good friend Fola “4Lah” Afolayan.
I particularly doff my hat to professionals such as Victor Orhorhoro and Tola “Jinjah” Adeogun. Both experts made teaching a breeze blending long drawn lessons with practical perspectives and updated techniques in News Reading and Radio Imaging and Production.
A big shout out to Faith Dafe Joseph too for her input and it was great seeing an old colleague again!
I noticed with pleasure during my session an array of creative minds that could do well by taking advantage of podcast’s novelty to launch their great ideas and contribute to radio’s alternative while catering to narrow audiences. It might seem a daunting task at first but practice and resilience should provide profitable long term results.

Lokal FM: A Review…

“I downloaded the LokalFM app recently and decided to listen nonstop for a week, to see if all it’s hyped up to be is true. As a Nigerian in the diaspora, I sometimes lose track of the latest Nigerian music releases. In the week that I listened to LokalFM, I definitely got caught up! Even though my one-week experiment is long over (and yes, the hype is true), I will continue to listen to LokalFM. It is my one-stop radio station to satisfy all my Naija music cravings.
This is definitely one platform advertisers need to jump on. LokalFM has the potential to be a highly successful enterprise with listenership spanning Africans all over the world. I have no doubt that Tony Doe Onwuchekwa still has a lot of ideas on how to take his online radio platform to the next level up his sleeves. If he keeps up his current level of hard work and dedication to the craft, he will achieve his dreams and much more.”

INTRODUCING LOKAL FM…

It’s been a long time coming.
Many spurts, stutters [still happening sef] but somehow against the grain I’ve started it and there’s a purpose behind this movement.
I’ve dreamed of “owning” my own station and while this is still on a borrowed platform, it allows me bring my experience and experimental tendencies with fewer restrictions or managerial hinderances.
Still, it’s expensive, time consuming and nerve wracking especially as I’m doing it all by my lonely.
Good friends have offered advice, skill and moral support where needed but now it goes beyond that.
I need funds to run it.
But I’m confident that will come.
First the vision…to be a leading aural source of informed entertainment [music, news, etc.] albeit in pidgin.
The Mission, is to showcase the best of Naija content to the world, highlighting triumphs in the arts and technology!
Summary:
“LokalFM is a pidgin variety station featuring informative entertainment targeted at Nigerian & African audiences at home & abroad.”
I even coined a format for it [PVR] Contemporary Pidgin Variety Radio.
I look forward to you joining me on this journey as artistes who need to be heard, tech gurus with stories to tell, service providers confident enough to advertise on this platform, trusting in its vision.
Lokal FM will also be a platform for aspiring radio talents embracing new technologies to improve their skills.
So, are you with me?

Listen to LOKAL FM!
