WHAT WOMEN WANT FROM RADIO:
6 reminders to focus your programming today. You're going to love #6!

1. Keep it clean. Even among 18 to 24-year-olds, a majority of women are concerned about what kids hear on the radio.

2. "People listen to people they like." Women have a low tolerance for rude announcers.

3. The #1 tune out. Too many commercials. Listeners consider all interruptions commercials, including promo's 10's etc). Try to keep all non-music promotion quick to the point and focused.

4. Just when you thought they knew them all. A majority of women across all formats want to hear songs and artists identified frequently. In terms of importance, this identification is more important to women than funny DJs.

5. Big opportunity. Grow your database. Only a small percentages (4%) of women are active members of loyal listener clubs. (we must work harder to add value to our websites and loyal listener clubs).

6. What's the best way to grow cume & get new listeners in? For women, nothing beats "word-of-mouth" reference about a radio station. They are more motivated by hearing about radio station programming and activities from a friend than by any other advertising medium.

A new interview in the New York Times checks in with U2 as they prepare for a series of arena shows. However, Bono says he is still healing from his bike crash in New York last year. Most of his remaining injuries are in his left hand and forearm, and still cannot play guitar.  “It feels like I have somebody else’s hand,” he said, adding that his forearm and elbow are "all numb" and titanium, adding that "The shoulder’s better, the face is better.”

The feature also gives a look into the setup for U2's next tour. The band is aiming to play two sets, with an intermission. The first set would essentially be identical each night, with changes in the second set. A triple platform stage has been built, with the sound system fixed to the ceiling rather than the traditional placement around the stage.

Their now-infamous iTunes release of last year's Song Of Innocence was discussed as well. Bono's longtime friend and collaborator Gavin Friday is involved in the production of the tour and told the Times, "The way the album was released, Apple overshadowed the whole thing, so the album was never really listened to. I was told to make the song really real.”

U2's Innocence + Experience Tour begins in Vancouver, British Columbia on May 14, with dates set well into November around the world. In a recently recorded interview, Bono revealed that U2 is planning to play their homeland of Ireland around Christmastime.
