Scanning The Dial Gets A New Co-Author

A bit of promotional cross-pollination today in that I’m very pleased to report that Scanning The Dial introduced a new co-author this week: Emily Kurlinski. Emily lives, eats, breathes, and sleeps radio and music in Chattanooga, TN and she joins veteran classical music radio blogger Marty Ronish as the third co-author since the blog was launched in March, 2008.

ADAPTISTRATION-Guy-169You can check out Emily’s inaugural post, Reinventing Delmarva Public Radio, from 11/12/13 and learn more about her skills and credentials at her about page.

Personally, I’m thrilled to see a new voice join the blog as the entire field of classical music radio is not only fascinating but an integral part of the larger classical music ecosystem. And like other elements, it has suffered since the downturn but just like any ecosystem, the impact of losing an entire species, or even watching it dip to the endangered list, will have dire consequences.

As such, do yourself a favor and start following Scanning The Dial.

About Drew McManus

"I hear that every time you show up to work with an orchestra, people get fired." Those were the first words out of an executive's mouth after her board chair introduced us. That executive is now a dear colleague and friend but the day that consulting contract began with her orchestra, she was convinced I was a hatchet-man brought in by the board to clean house.

I understand where the trepidation comes from as a great deal of my consulting and technology provider work for arts organizations involves due diligence, separating fact from fiction, interpreting spin, as well as performance review and oversight. So yes, sometimes that work results in one or two individuals "aggressively embracing career change" but far more often than not, it reinforces and clarifies exactly what works and why.

In short, it doesn't matter if you know where all the bodies are buried if you can't keep your own clients out of the ground, and I'm fortunate enough to say that for more than 15 years, I've done exactly that for groups of all budget size from Qatar to Kathmandu.

For fun, I write a daily blog about the orchestra business, provide a platform for arts insiders to speak their mind, keep track of what people in this business get paid, help write a satirical cartoon about orchestra life, hack the arts, and love a good coffee drink.
