RAB’s (Radio Advertising Bureau) third annual RadioWorks Conference, themed ‘Radio – Amplified’, is set to break through the complacency to inspire and re-ignite a passion for radio as the powerful advertising medium that it is.

Moreover, with more advertisers acknowledging that consumers are now more than ever connecting with brands through digital and social media communities – the big question is, ‘what does this mean for radio?’

RAB GM, Matona Sakupwanya confirms that this year’s line-up of speakers, who’ve each been tasked with ‘fuelling the fire for creating great radio, to help advertisers achieve their objectives’, will address this and many more other radio advertising issues of the day.

“Despite the popularity of our growing digital offerings, radio’s real power still lies in the connection it makes with listeners. Radio has become the meeting point for a number of new technologies such as mobile, social media and the internet.

As the champion of the medium of radio in South Africa, we’ve made it our business to prove the effectiveness and relevance of the medium in the new media landscape and demonstrate how advertisers and their advertising agencies can take advantage of this in their radio advertising”, she says.

There to capture all that glorious sound and give festival-goers the highlights of all the popular shows is a team of 8 Rhodes University students, who put together and run the podcast compilation that has been named Cue Radio.

One of the Cue Radio journalists is Babalawa Nyembezi who shows particular excitement at being a part of this team; “one of the things to look forward to in the podcast is an interview with the City Press Editor, Ferial Haffajee, as she’ll be giving an interview on her lecture that she’ll be presenting in the ThinkFest section of festival”, she says enthusiastically.

The team goes around Grahamstown, to different shows, interviewing different art-goers, participants, and stakeholders to compile the ins- and-outs of a day at the National Arts Festival to broadcast on air for “festinos” to enjoy.

Cue Radio works in conjunction with the Grahamstown community radio station, Radio Grahamstown as well as the Rhodes University campus radio station, RMR. An hour long of podcasts that have been compiled by the team are aired daily throughout the National Arts festival.
