Tweeknotes – 7th March to 13th March

This week, a date was announced (31st March) for the launch of the UK Radio Player, or Radioplayer as it’s now known. On that date the core partners (BBC, Global, GMG and Absolute) will go live, with the next wave, hopefully, coming a couple of weeks later. We’ve been developing player consoles for our clients and it’s been fun to see everyone’s involvement evolve over the last few weeks.

Talking to radio people outside the project, there seems to be a bit of a shrug about Radioplayer’s launch. Stations have online consoles right now, after all. It’s definitely something that only really hits you when you play with it and use search and presets, flipping between stations. It’s the most normal thing in the world to use, and crazy to think it’s taken us in radio so long to get there.

Other things that i’ve seen this week:

I’ll leave you with a brilliant perfectly on brand tweet from E4:
