Thanks, Lydia! posted on February 19th, 2014

SAMSUNGIt is with great sadness that we are announcing the retirement of our receptionist and office assistant, Lydia Leitzke.

Lydia has been with us for over fourteen years, back in July 1999. She began working at MusicMaster as a receptionist and was the first voice everyone heard when calling into the corporate office. She later moved into a combined role at MusicMaster and was a tremendous help to Susan Averbeck with the daily office functions.

Although we will all miss Lydia, she has given her full devotion to MusicMaster and has earned the opportunity to enjoy more time with her family and grandchildren. We wish Lydia all the best in her retirement!

Roswell Genius Day posted on February 15th, 2014

You’re looking at what may be the last group photo of the programming team at Majestic Broadcasting in Roswell, New Mexico. From left to right, John Sebastian, VP Director of Operations; Ryan Burden, Promotions Director; Tony Clayton, Roswell’s Rock Deity; Joe Knapp and Jesus Rodriguez, MusicMaster; and Ron Stevens, KMOU morning show host. Joe Knapp and Jesus Rodriguez from MusicMaster conducted a Genius Day workshop here last month, just days before three of these gentlemen left the building to pursue other options. Hey, guys, we hope it’s nothing we said! Maybe the aliens had something to do with it. In any case, KMOU-FM, KBCQ-FM, KBCQ-AM, and KSFX-FM are now all in the capable hands of Ryan Burden.

Jill Sorenson recently spent three days away from the “polar vortex” to visit sunny Florida for some intensive training on a new suite of tools that we’ll be using to take our help and documentation systems for MusicMaster and our other new products into the 21st century. We look forward to seeing these improvements in the near future!

MusicMaster is pleased to announce the latest addition to our scheduling family–MusicMaster PE. The “PE” is for Personal Edition. This is a slimmed down version of the MusicMaster you’ve come to rely on. It is designed for users who want to create their own personal audio stream. You’ll be able to manage your music and schedule your logs just like you’ve always done. MusicMaster PE also comes with its own player. After you add a few songs, you’ll be listening to your own stream. Whether you like to plan out your party music or want to create a stream on the Internet, MusicMaster PE gives you all the functionality you’ll need to do that at a price that won’t break your budget. If you or someone you know wants to set up their own stream, call us so we can discuss how quickly you’ll be up and running with MusicMaster PE!

MusicMaster’s Shane Finch and Aaron Taylor visited Southfield, Michigan in suburban Detroit this past month to meet with our good friends at Enco Systems. They were welcomed with a guided tour of the features now available in the latest version of the Enco digital audio automation system. On hand to greet them were members of the Enco team pictured below, including Shawn O’Donnell, Ken Frommert, Dave Turner, and Wesley Grass.

While in town, Shane Finch paid a call on Radio’s Best Friend, Art Vuolo (who is also MusicMaster’s best friend). We thought we’d shoot some candid video in HIS studio for a change!

MusicMaster in Africa posted on February 10th, 2014

ON AIR’s Justus Fischer recently visited CoolFM, Wazobia FM, and Nigeria Info in Lagos/Nigeria to do a six day MusicMaster special workshop with the music department.

The three networks broadcast mostly nationwide offering a straight CHR format, local African music, and a News/Talk/Sports format mixed with some smooth Jazz. Furthermore, the corporation is in the process of launching several new TV stations.

Justus was not only impressed by the professionalism concerning their work but also by the gentleness of the Nigerian people in general. It looks like it was lots of fun too!

South Carolina Broadcasters Convention posted on February 8th, 2014

After driving in from frosty Atlanta, the MusicMaster road crew visited many old friends and made several new friends at the South Carolina Broadcasters Convention last week. The beautiful Convention Center in Columbia, South Carolina sits right in the Vista area of town, and it’s a great place to hang out with friends! Representing MusicMaster was Drew Bennett in the Wide Orbit booth with Brad Young and Lee Bell, and also Aaron Taylor in the Enco booth with Aaron Johnson. Joining them was MusicMaster’s President, founder, and CEO, Joe Knapp, along with Shane Finch who heads up MusicMaster sales and support operations. We even managed to visit some area radio stations with morning donuts in hand!
