      10:00 a.m. --- The Future of Terrestrial Radio --- Or Is There One?

      Choices in the Era of "CD Glut"

The first in a three-part series on current concerns of music directors.

that comes across our desks? What factors go into determining whether or 
not a CD is chosen for airplay on a station?

      2:45 p.m. --- Technology: Automation as an Alternative to Live Radio

More stations are going towards automation, replacing live program 
hosts, due to the economic downturn. What are the technologies that are 
available, and what stations are currently using them? What are the 
advantages? What are the pitfalls? Can automation and other technologies 
augment the on-air program via streaming?

increasing relevance to our industry. Will internet radio kill 
terrestrial radio? Is satellite radio dead?

      10:30 a.m --- 11:30 a.m. Music Director 103: Digital Technology

As CDs are being replaced in virtually every other music genre, are you 
ready to convert your station to digital downloads, or other 
alternatives? What to do with that CD collection at your station ... and 
how about playlisting? Are you using any software to compile archives of 
your shows for your audiences/BMI/ASCAP/SESAC etc.? A discussion will 
ensue in which stations can share how this information is provided.

Facebook, Twitter and disintermediation? Audience brainstorming and 
suggestions will be welcome.
