Programming Note: This will be our last episode before a hiatus of a couple weeks as Chris Kelly goes on his previously planned honeymoon, and as this also completes the ‘soft launch’ beta phase of the podcast. Once we’re back, the full blown launch of the RadioDaily will occur. In THIS episode, Pandora extends their footprint to reach Satellite subscribers by getting their own channel on Sirius XM. Promotions at labels and new program directors all across our fair industry for a Friday. And Ryan Kramer tees up a weekend mix tape for your listening pleasure. It’s the Radio Daily for Friday April 5, 2019.
