  • Yup, I'm A Slacker - Part 2: Bill Cunningham Shows Me How To Work - Digital Music Insider
    could collect my thoughts on Digital Music Digital Content and hopefully figure some stuff out While blogging I networked and thought things through I got taken down a few rungs on numerous occasions It came as a shock for example when a music related company didn t rush to return my phone call or email After all I thought I practically green lit their deal at Warner I was naïve I was ignorant On the other hand I was also amazed that certain people mostly outside of the traditional music business were interested in what I had to offer I found myself consulting a Public Radio company and also deeply engaged for a couple of weeks in a Digital Czar search for a well known PR company The cliché was true it was a big world out there the challenge was figuring out my place in it Depending on the day it was humbling or inspiring It was a roller coaster ride Yet I always had my friends and family and also the blog to help sort me out I considered starting my own company came very close to taking that job running the west coast digital arm for the PR agency interviewed at a legendary music magazine turned down a funded start up CEO gig and eventually realized that I wasn t finished with music or the music business Then Jim Cady CEO of Slacker called He was straight ahead Precise Realistic Compelling Jim s understanding of the digital music landscape was superb His articulation of Slacker s market differentiation was matter of fact He didn t use a lot of buzzwords or adjectives His whole presentation was so refreshing I listened to Jim Jim told me that Slacker Radio had made significant content gains in the last couple of years with partnerships secured with ABC News ESPN the carriers and a host of user targeted improvements Facts analysis and contextualization I really liked his style Then I listened to Slacker This was it It was a great radio experience clearly the people programming the stations were really knowledgeable These stations were highly curated by real music experts They were not just based on sound but instead were programmed like a fan would program a station Familiar enough to live up to their naming conventions but exploratory enough to keep you discovering new music The experience itself was nicely interactive you could heart songs you loved ban songs you hated and adjust familiarity and repetition It worked I loved the experience I met Jonathan Sasse and he was cut from similar cloth to Jim Super smart realistic direct cool I liked him too I was offered a job SVP Strategic Development This time I said yes So now I have a new work home My mission is to spread the gospel about Slacker through deals content development and general music industry relations I m optimistic that at least on our good days working at Slacker will feel like play
