Nashville native Derek Wells has been called “one of the most talented people in music – period” and “a magnet for great people and great music” by Frank Rogers, his boss at the Spirit Music Group of Nashville.

As an A&R and production talent, he is renowned. As a session guitarist, he also enjoyed success. Recently – via Kane Brown’s “Like I Love Country Music” – Wells scored the accomplishment of playing on 100 No. 1 singles on country radio..

He’s a Grammy-nominated creator who has been named Guitarist of the Year by the Academy of Country Music and Musician of the Year by the Country Music Association for the past decade.

However, noting that he did so after performing with Brown, Kenny Chesney, Florida Georgia Line, Kid Rock, Maddie and Tae, Maren Morris, Midland, Dolly Parton, Blake Shelton, Thomas Rhett, Carrie Underwood, and more , Wells has a great perspective on the depth and range of sounds emanating from the end of Music City.

College football season is almost here.

Forget last Saturday. It’s called week 0 for a reason. Do you really want to believe the 2022 season opener was 3-9 Northwestern and 3-9 Nebraska playing halfway around the world?

At Barrett Sports Media, we celebrate college football through a media lens. Throughout the week, our resident college football editors and superfans, Arky Shea, Demetri Ravanos and Garrett Searight, will take a look at the best the media has to offer in terms of college football coverage.

The full schedule is as follows:

MONDAY: Best local show

TUESDAY: Best National Radio Show

WEDNESDAY: Best College Football Podcast

THURSDAY: Best TV Show

FRIDAY: Best Play-by-Play TV Booth

The national conversation about college football revolves around the headliners. Who has the most unique way of saying “Alabama is good”? Who can deliver a take so well thought out and nuanced that you walk away convinced Kirby Smart might be in the hot seat?

College football, like star wars, takes place over a vast geography with storylines that are only loosely connected. If you can keep fanbases of multiple teams playing wildly different stakes engaged in the same conversation, you’re doing something right.

Here are our picks for the best nationally broadcast sports radio shows covering college football.

THE PAUL FINEBAUM SHOW by Arky Shea

You are allowed to say whatever you want on The Paul Finebaum Show but unless it’s a compliment, it’s going to fall on deaf ears with me. Finebaum was the one who introduced me to sports radio over twenty years ago and I absolutely see what a powerhouse he still is today. No one is more for college football fans than Paul Finebaum and his show. No one speaks to more college football fans than Paul Finebaum. The rapid pulse of sport is measured in sound bytes recorded on its airwaves.

Finebaum has long been a very good interviewer who asks the most important questions a wandering mind can imagine. He is also a very funny and self-deprecating host. His flair is to take the listeners on a ride with the callers as a driver. It allows the caller, the college football fan, to shout all their most impassioned battle cries without judgment while maneuvering them alongside their rivals’ callers, all in an attempt to show that this sport, college football , is NOTHING without its fans. It’s a radio genius and a gateway for those unaware of the constant, that is, daily, hustle and bustle of being a fan of a Southern team.

THE DA SHOW by Garrett Searight

In a radio world hyper-polarized by roughly 4 teams per league – outside of the NFL – The DA show thwarts all trends. Damon Amendolara doesn’t buy the theory that you should only talk about the Lakers, Warriors, Nets, and Celtics, just as he doesn’t think discussions of college football should only be about Alabama, the Ohio State, Clemson and USC.

Many would say you shouldn’t have an interview with Dave Clawson from Wake Forest or Josh Huepel from Tennessee. “Nobody talks about them. They are not relevant at the national level”, is the argument frequently advanced. Well, they’re not nationally relevant because no one is talking about them. So DA talks about college football as a whole, not just power players, and interviews more coaches than anyone. If you are a college football fan, not just a team or conference fan, The DA show is a must during the football season.

THE HERD by Demetri Ravanos

Colin Cowherd talks to big names and asks unique questions. What more do you want from a national sports radio show when it’s covering college football? He gives interesting opinions, maybe not always right, but interesting. Isn’t that precious in a sport where being right means picking Alabama, Ohio State, Georgia or Clemson every week of every year?

Colin may not talk about everything in the world of college football, but it’s so clear that he loves the sport dearly. And I really like that at a time when everyone is lamenting so much change, he asks people to justify and explain their gripes. He’s the only national voice that truly loves college football that doesn’t constantly tell me the sport is about to go down the toilet.

Last Russian-Ukrainian War: What We Know About Day 186 of the Invasion | Ukraine https://937thewave.com/last-russian-ukrainian-war-what-we-know-about-day-186-of-the-invasion-ukraine/ Sun, 28 Aug 2022 11:59:42 +0000 https://937thewave.com/last-russian-ukrainian-war-what-we-know-about-day-186-of-the-invasion-ukraine/ Concerns about possible radiation leak at Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant persist.

  • Concerns about possible radiation leak at Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant persist. The Ukrainian energy operator warned that there were “risks of hydrogen leakage and spraying of radioactive substances” in the Russian-occupied plant. Authorities were distributing iodine tablets to residents who live near the plant in case of radiation exposure.

  • Russia and Ukraine swapped new charges for bombing the area around the nuclear power plant, the largest in Europe, on Saturday. Troops from Moscow have “repeatedly shelled” the plant site over the past day, Ukrainian nuclear company Energoatom said. The Russian Defense Ministry claimed that Ukrainian troops had “shelled the territory of the station three times” in the past day.

  • The UN’s nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), is trying to negotiate access to the plant for an urgent inspection mission “to help stabilize the nuclear safety and security situation”. Energoatom chief Petro Kotin told the Guardian a visit could take place before the end of the month, but Ukraine’s energy minister Lana Zerkal told a local radio station that she would not was not convinced that Russia was negotiating in good faith.

  • Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy issued a statement marking Ukrainian Aviation Day, in which he pledged that the Kyiv troops would “destroy the potential of the occupiers step by step”. The Ukrainian president swore that the “Russian invaders would die like dew on the sun”.

  • Russia has probably increased the intensity of its attacks in the Donetsk region, in eastern Ukraine, in the Donbass region over the past five days, according to British intelligence. Pro-Russian separatists have most likely advanced towards the center of the village of Pisky, near Donetsk airport, but Russian forces have made little territorial gains overall, according to the latest report from the UK Ministry of Defense.

  • Russia has blocked a deal at the UN to strengthen the nuclear non-proliferation treaty. The failure to agree on a joint declaration, due to Moscow’s objection to a clause on control of the Zaporizhzhia plant, is the latest blow to hopes of maintaining an arms control regime and contain a rekindled arms race.

  • Ukrainian sailors will be allowed to leave the country to work, said the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine. Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal said draft-age men employed as crew members would be allowed to leave the country as long as they had permission from their local conscription offices to cross the border.

  • Britain’s Ministry of Defense said it would donate six underwater drones to Ukraine to help clear its coastline of mines and make grain shipments safer.. In addition, dozens of members of the Ukrainian Navy will learn how to use the drones over the next few months, the ministry said.

  • Kazakhstan, a neighbor and ally of Russia, has suspended all arms exports for a yearsaid his government, amid the conflict in Ukraine and Western sanctions against Moscow.

  • Poland and the Czech Republic have agreed to protect the airspace of their NATO ally, Slovakiaas it modernizes its air force, moving from old Soviet-made MiG-29 fighters to a new batch of F-16 aircraft from the United States.

    A fledgling radio station in Kumasi, the Ashanti regional capital, has been ordered to close following popular politician Odike’s allegations against the region’s traditional rulers.

    Akwasi Addai (Odike) had alleged that chiefs in the area were behind the illegal mining, known as galamsey. He said that was the reason why their destructive galamsey activities were progressing in their backyard.

    Bayelsa State Broadcasting Corporation chief executive Terrence Ekise said efforts were underway to renew the station’s operating licenses.

    Ekise made the statement on Saturday when reacting to the recent revocation of operating licenses by the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC).

    He said in a telephone interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the management of Radio Bayelsa was trying to pay the overdue renewal fees.

    The general manager said the station had paid around N13 million of the NBC 17 million it owed NBC.

    “We are surprised that despite continued efforts to clear the debt backlog, the station has been listed as affected,” he said.

    Ekise said the radio station had a good working relationship with former NBC management regarding the license renewal issue.

    “We have made remarkable progress in paying down our debt. A grace period was granted during the COVID-19 outbreak. So far we’ve done well and shouldn’t have been listed,” he said.

    He said the station is currently grappling with the challenge of rebuilding and re-equipping its office complex.

    As a reminder, NBC on Friday revoked the licenses of no less than 50 broadcast stations, including Radio Bayelsa, for non-renewal of operating licenses.

    NBC, which ordered the affected broadcast stations shut down after 24 hours, said they collectively owed about 2.6 billion naira.

    NAN reports that Radio Bayelsa and Rhythm 94.7 FM, two radio stations affected by the NBC directive, have not yet closed their doors. (NOPE)

    The Portland Trail Blazers will not be sending broadcast crews with the team to cover road games during the 2022-23 NBA season. The topic was first broached by longtime Portland sports media personality Dwight Jaynes on Twitter. Sources have told Blazer’s Edge that Jaynes was right. TV and radio members will stay home, calling games remotely, while the team travels.

    Jaynes, along with radio host Chad Doing, covered the decision here:

    The Blazers once operated with fixed broadcast teams, during the COVID-19 pandemic. During this time, the team contracted with the corresponding home team in each game to use their TV feed. Broadcast channels return to Portland, where TV and radio booth announcers add their own commentary. The approach should be the same this time.

    The shortcomings of the system are clear. Portland broadcasters can only see what the TV camera and its producers show. They miss seeing the whole yard. They are also at the mercy of attention from the opposing franchise. Home teams tend to want to display their own players and events.

    In a tweet laterJaynes clarified that while the broadcasters will be spending more time with their families, it was not a decision they requested.

    Presumably, this measure reduces costs for the franchise. In the makers assessment, the reduction in quality and connection is an acceptable waste of dollars saved.

    It’s risky, though. Streams are the only connection 98% of fans have with the team. Fans fall in love with the players and the action across the shows. The impact on quality in this department impacts almost everyone attached to the team who is not on the pitch.

    It’s also part of a mind-numbing model of NBA franchises that saves small percentages at the cost of peak potential earnings. Teams will pay millions for players, coaches and buildings, but balk at a few for an entire broadcast or online media service. Portland has already lost the best social media manager in the business this year. Now they’re nerfing the shows, which by all appearances is making it harder for the talent they’ve hired to do their jobs.

    As the Blazers themselves keep reminding their fans in every 40-win season, there’s more to being an A-level NBA franchise than wins and losses. It would be nice if they followed up on those statements by going back to when their shows and everything around them ruled as the envy of the league.

    We are far from it now. Apparently, even being average might be asking too much.

    KOTO Radio kicks off summer fundraising with Guest DJ Day Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Under the themed banner “Across the Universe,” KOTO will feature an out-of-this-world lineup of eight guest DJ programs, along with stellar giveaways and all the cosmic camaraderie listeners can handle.

    “The ‘Across the Universe’ theme came from our expansion of the signal to Ridgway and enjoying the fact that the town is only 40 miles away,” explained KOTO General Manager Cara Pallone. “The goal is to raise $65,000 over two weeks for general operations and ongoing equipment needs, including signal expansion at Ridgway.”

    Last year, the Federal Communications Commission approved KOTO’s application to extend its signal to Ridgway within three years. With new KOOK call letters and a new frequency at 90.3 FM, the tower will be located

    just outside of Ouray on Gold Mountain Ranch, a rugged 1,200-acre property with 100 historic mining claims. Once a property lease agreement is signed with the site owners, the station will find and hire a radio frequency engineer to assess the site and provide a list of supplies and equipment needed.

    “It’s quite a remote location, so we plan to have the equipment and erect the tower in the fall, but with the delay, it may have to be in the spring,” Pallone said.

    The location of the new tower sits on a 9,300 foot precipice that overlooks the Ouray box canyon and is already home to towers for KURA (Ouray High School radio station), Colorado Public Radio, Property Management Services emergencies, major cell providers such as Verizon, and other Internet and data providers.

    “There aren’t many places with this kind of coverage that are accessible with existing infrastructure,” explained Keller Herrin, Gold Mountain Ranch’s director of operations for the past five years. “The main concern is making sure the infrastructure is in place to handle the elements of all seasons.”

    Herrin added that Gold Mountain is proud to partner with KOTO, which has served area voters for decades.

    “Our hope is that the planned location at Gold Mountain will allow for an expansion into the Uncompahgre Valley that will result in future success and longevity for KOTO,” he said.

    Friday’s guest DJ day kicks off at 9 a.m. with the Pinhead Extravaganza, followed by The Astronaut Hour with locals and former astronauts Brewster Shaw and Joe Tanner. At 11 a.m., the San Miguel Power association “lights up”.

    At noon, travel writer Maribeth Clemente will host a special edition of “Travel Fun” with guests Steve Togni, General Manager of Mountain Lodge Telluride, and Noah Sheedy, Principal of Telluride Ski & Snowboard School. Clemente has collected incentive bonuses from Mountain Lodge, La Cocina de Luz, Aveda Telluride Spa, Cindybread, Counter Culture and Mesa Rose and Grocery in Norwood.

    After being a KOTO ski instructor and DJ for 19 years, Clemente said, “KOTO is my family. I love being part of the ski school family and my KOTO family.

    Natalie Binder and Jodie Wright, representing CampV and One Architects, respectively, will take to the airwaves at 1 p.m. and deliver a stellar mix of songs from past favorite musical performances at Planet V, plus some fun giveaways.

    “CampV often feels like another universe even though it’s only an hour’s drive from Telluride,” Binder said. “We’ve launched an arts and music festival called Planet V, so this theme is perfect for our team.”

    At 2 p.m., Bärbel Hacke will host a special edition of his Sunday morning “Beatles Brunch with Bärbel” called “Beatles Bash”, during which, as Hacke said, “You donate, I play your song from the Beatles”. She will shoot original LPs and 45s.

    “The first time I was on the air was in 1981 with a special report on protests in West Germany against the placement of more cruise missiles,” said Hacke, who hosted a morning show called “Morning Dew” and an evening show called “The Season of the Witch” over the years. “KOTO is the voice of Telluride and beyond. KOTO keeps the Telluride vibe alive, with community members young and old, from all walks of life.

    At 3 p.m., join the Glucksterns as they rule the KOTO galaxy with “Lucky Stars.”

    “My last name, Gluckstern, translates to ‘lucky star’,” said local Sarah Gluckstern. “My dad, Steven, whom we honor during this guest DJ hour, had a truly universal impact during his time on this planet.”

    While on the air, the Gluckstern family plans to tell stories, feature a song that relates to Steven, and perform some of his favorite tunes, including classical, rock, and electro.

    “Gear Treks with Richie Parkhill & Erik Dalton” will wrap up the guest DJ day from 4-5 p.m.

    Donate $50 and receive a KOTO Solar Shirt while supplies last. Donate $100 and listeners will automatically be entered into two draws – one for a SOL GalaXy Paddle Board and the other for a two-night Peaks Hotel & Spa package, which includes a massage.
