RadioBrave.com Launches Tomorrow With Mix Of Talk And Music
May 3, 2016 at 7:21 AM (PT)
HOUSTON radio veteran DOUG HARRIS is launching a new online music and talk streaming radio station, RADIOBRAVE.COM, starting TOMORROW (5/4), in partnership with fellow HOUSTON personalities PAT FANT and CRUZE's RFC MEDIA. The channel, which will broker time to programmers but will not air infomercials, "overtly political content," or extended non-English language shows, will be available via TUNEIN as well as its own site. BOBBY "SLAM" DUNCAN will serve as Operations Director.
“Across the country, the weekend lineup of countless AMs, and an appreciable number of FMs, is filled with content from experts and entrepreneurs who are paying for that time,” said HARRIS, who describes the channel as "Mind+Music." “RADIO BRAVE will offer business category exclusivity, multiple fixed-position listening episodes throughout the week, and an hour of music between shows. That means no back-to-back messages on the same station from people who are unquestionably competitors.”
On board for day one will be the HOUSTON FILM CRITICS SOCIETY's "THE CRITICS CIRCLE," "Metaphysical Moms" TIFFANIE WILLIAMS and KERRY WALKER with "JOYRIDE," "ENERGY RECON" with ALAN LAMMEY, and "CULINARY ADVENTURE" with JOHN DEMERS. Coming in the next few weeks are "BIG IDEAS FOR SMALL BUSINESS," "IT'S ALL GREEK TO ME," and "THE FLOWER POWER HOUR."
FANT and HARRIS are also planning a retrospective weekly show about the glory days of Rock KLOL, "THE RUNAWAY RADIO HOUR: THE STORY AND GLORY OF KLOL" “We’re taking hours and hours of archived audio from KLOL’s heyday, mixing it with current interviews with the folks who made it happen, and turning it into a one hour weekly show,” said FANT. “This is catnip to Houstonians who haven’t heard STEVENS AND PRUETT on the radio for over a decade. There are so many stories to be told and fortunately the statute of limitations on most of these offenses has run out.”
“This is not a place for angry fist-shakers, those who fleece hard-working Americans, deluded zealots, or hatemongers,” added HARRIS. “We’re going to provide intelligent, satisfying content, have some fun, and make some money. Just like the old days.”
