As popular music has grown into a billion-dollar industry, the competition between radio stations for listener attention has become fierce. Today’s corporate-owned and –controlled radio stations tend to view radio play as a science. They employ marketing consultants who use formal research methods such as surveys and focus groups to determine audience preferences and strategically develop formatted playlists of music for disc jockeys to follow. Such an approach, Slide17: Background Information however, is still relatively new. Traditionally, disc jockeys viewed their craft as an art, relying on their own artistic expertise and inspiration from listener suggestions to determine musical selections. No one is more aware of the tension between creativity and commercialism in radio than Los Angeles disc jockey Jim Ladd. Since the mid-1960s, Ladd has been a popular member of the L.A. radio scene. More recently, he has become an outspoken advocate of what he refers to as free-form radio. Ladd Slide18: Background Information refuses to work within the confines of formats and playlists. Instead, he insists on controlling the music played on his show himself. “In my definition, free-form radio means that the person on the air gets to play whatever they want,” he says, although he does regularly take listener requests as well. In this way, he maintains the unique listener-disc jockey relationship that once characterized rock radio. Slide19: Background Information Ladd regards music as a creative medium that can be used as a tool for social impact. His show commonly features music with a message, celebrating such ideals as peace, human kindness, and brotherhood. Often, he weaves songs together into thematic sets that segue neatly from one song to the next. “I try to use whole songs as a rock musician and use a note or a chord,” he says, describing an approach for selecting songs that is clearly artistic. Slide20: Ladd refers to marketing consultants as “the suits,” and he argues that their approach to meeting audience preferences results in little more than an endless repetition of selected songs. Ladd’s refusal to bow to corporate pressure has, at times, kept him out of work. But he has a strong following, and currently his fans form a powerful audience. Background Information Slide21: Station revenues, of course, are dependent upon being able to deliver a large number of listeners for their advertisers. Marketing consultants argue that the problem with viewing radio play as an art is that not everyone appreciates the same “art”. Thus, stations view free-form radio as a high-stakes gamble, and they are hesitant to rely on the creative hunches of individual disc jockeys regarding what listeners will like. Background Information Slide22: Background Information The consultants maintain that formalized research and structured playlists simply serve as a more efficient means of ensuring that radio stations are satisfying their audiences. Indeed, both the consultants and the disc jockeys pay close attention to listeners’ opinions when choosing the music to be aired. But disc jockeys like Ladd argue that the consultant-controlled model prevents them from being able to interact meaningfully with listeners. They maintain that free-form radio allows them to introduce their audiences to new music and to new ways of looking at the music they love. Slide23: Background Information Ultimately, whether free form or suit-motivated, radio programming is based on listeners’ preferences. In the end, it is the listener who votes by turning the dial. What do you think? Should radio play be approached more as an art or a science? Consider your answer from several perspectives — that of a radio listener, a station manager, a disc jockey, and an advertiser — and see if your answer begins to change or if it remains the same. Slide24: Talk Radio, FM Zoo, and Shock Jocks In addition to music, two popular entertainment radio formats are political talk and FM Zoo. On political talk shows, a host will often introduce a topic and then invite discussion from one or more guest experts. Call-in shows where listeners are invited to share their opinions are a particularly popular format for these shows. Many political talkers are syndicated, but local shows are also popular. An Annenberg national poll found that 18% of adults listen to at least one call-in political talk radio program a week. Typically conservative shows (with hosts such as Rush Limbaught and Gordon Liddy) tend to fare better than more liberal-leaning programs. Not surprisingly, Background Information Slide25: those who listen to such shows tend to be males who are older, more conservative, predominately white, and are very interested in politics, politically active, and hold anti-Washington attitudes. The FM Zoo refers to the morning drive format that dominates contemporary FM stations. During the rest of the day, these stations typically play some genre of popular music (contemporary hit radio, adult contemporary, hot country, oldies, and so forth). During the morning drive, some of this music is played, but much of the time is spent in informal banter among the hosts, a traffic reporter, a sports reporter, and a news anchor. Background Information Slide26: Shock jocks might be seen as an outgrowth of both political talk and zoo genres. Shock DJs tend to push the limits of societal norms by using inflammatory language and issuing views so controversial that some critics consider them to be sociopathic. Howard Stern might be seen as the poster boy for shock jocks. On his syndicated radio show, Stern prays for cancer to kill public officials he does not like, jokes about bodily functions, and finds a way to insult virtually every societal group. Shock jocks like Stern and the radio stations that broadcast them defend these programs as an exercise of their First Amendment right to free expression. Nonetheless, the FCC has issued fines in excess of $1 million to stations that carry Stern’s show. Background Information Slide27: Although critics are loud in their protests, shock jocks exist and even prosper because people listen to them. In fact, some supporters contend that Stern and others like him play an important cultural role in providing a safe place where issues can be discussed and facilitating cultural evolution that might otherwise be stunted by oppressive social censure. For critics, however, such sentiments only reinforce their concerns as they contemplate the culture that might evolve from this programming. Background Information Slide28: Music and Radio: A Rocky Marriage Radio and the recording industry have a history of interdependence. Radio depends on the recording industry for a continuous flow of new material to broadcast, and the recording manufacturers depend on radio for the exposure of their product to potential consumers. Despite their close affiliation through the years, the music and radio industries have often clashed over issues. But considering that radio accounts for about 80% of record sales in America, the major record labels have almost always compromised on any conflicting issue, judiciously opting not to bite the hand that feeds them until recently. Background Information Slide29: Digital and satellite technologies are transforming the entire music entertainment industry. With the potential of wireless Internet and high-speed digital connectivity, the music industry could be in a position for the first time to break free of its alliance with radio as its primary source of introducing new music to consumers. The music industry has not openly admitted to waging battle with radio. Critics, however, suggest that the additional licensing and performance fees and higher fees for advertising talent and commercial content that have been levied against radio stations to make room for the major record labels to get into the Internet game. By developing their Background Information Slide30: own Internet radio sites and utilizing music download technology, recording companies might be able to bypass the retail industry and the radio industry, but instead promote and sell their music directly to consumers. Background Information Slide31: Under such a plan, the role of traditional radio would be reduced. The day could come when labels no longer send stations free music to promote but instead charge a subscription fee to them if they want to get the music first and fresh. To regain leverage before it is too late, some radio broadcasters have considered several strategies, ranging from simple blackouts of traditional advertisements from their Internet feeds to more radical changes, such as charging a promotion fee for airtime dedicated to specific songs or artists. The future of the music entertainment industry is uncertain. Nonetheless, the market for music will likely remain strong, regardless of who delivers the product. Background Information Back Slide32: Notes to the Text 1. Although the priority use of early radio was for maritime safety, its potential for entertainment was recognized from its inception. 尽管无线电首先服务于海事安全，但它潜在的娱 乐特性从一开始就是公认的。 2. Since the sign-on of the first commercial radio station, KDKA Pittsburgh, in 1920, the radio industry has enjoyed tremendous popularity. This sentence can be explained in this way: Since the initiation of the first commercial radio station, KDKA Pittsburgh, the radio industry has been very much popularized. Slide33: 3. Five years ago a hybrid form of entertainment was frowned on by show business in general. This sentence can be explained in this way: Five years ago a mixed form of entertainment was generally disapproved by show business. 4. Soon, radio stations’ regular on-air personalities became almost as popular as the visiting entertainers. 很快，广播电台上的常见人物变得几乎和巡演艺人一样受欢迎。 Notes to the Text Slide34: 5. Eventually, however, opera and the rest of the industry came to recognize radio as a way of stimulating sales and generating additional revenue streams. 然而，歌剧和其他产业最终认识到，广播是一种刺激销售、产生附加销售额的方式。 6. Sheet music and record dealers now consider radio as a boon to their business, rather than a detriment. This sentence can be explained in this way: Sheet music and record dealers now consider radio as something that can help to the development of their business rather than something that would damage its growth.

Grammar: 动词（Verbs）(I) —— 时态(Tense) Slide45: 3. 现在完成时与现在完成进行时的区别 (1) 在与表示一段时间的状语连用时，现在完成时和现在完成进行时均可表示过去动作延续到说话时，并可能继续下去，可以互换使用。 e.g. I have talked to the manager for about one hour. 我已同经理谈了一个小时。 I have been talking to the manager for one hour. 我一直同经理交谈，已经谈了一个小时了。 Grammar: 动词（Verbs）(I) —— 时态(Tense) Slide46: (2) 在不用时间状语时，现在完成时表示动作已结 束，而现在完成进行时则表示动作仍可能在进 行。 e.g. He has been grading papers. 他一直在给试卷打分。（表示动作可能已经完 成，也可能仍在继续） He has graded papers. 他已经给试卷打完分。（表示动作已经完成） Grammar: 动词（Verbs）(I) —— 时态(Tense) Slide47: (3) 现在完成进行时一般不适用状态动词，要表示状态动词的“持续性”只能用现在完成时。（注：状态动词表示感受、情感、看法、认识、愿望及所有关系等状态含义，如：be, belong, exist, feel, hate, love, want 等） e.g. They each other since very young. A) have been knowing B) knew C) have known D) had know 答案为C。 Grammar: 动词（Verbs）(I) —— 时态(Tense) Slide48: (4) 用“How Long … ?”结构询问目前正在进行的动作时，多用现在完成进行时。 e.g. How long have you been studying English?

What potential of radio is recognized from its inception? 3. What happened to the radio industry when the first commercial radio station signed on? 4. What was the reaction of musical managers to radio broadcast when it first began? 5. Eventually, what did show business come to recognize in respect of radio broadcast? 6. Why do radio stations pay a great deal of money to songwriters and composers in U.S. today? Back Slide51: Writing: Invitations Invitations （邀请信） A written invitation is a request that we send to ask for the recipient’s presence or participation in an event, such as a banquet, a seminar, a reception, or a party, and usually has two forms: invitation letters and invitation cards. Both forms are an effective means to establish closer relationships with other people and enhance emotional exchange. Slide52: In reality, invitation letters are often short and brief. However, in college test level B, we have to reach the word limit of 60 words. The solution to it lies in that we can develop something related to the invitation to arouse the reader’s interest. The following are requirements for a complete invitation: activity, place, time and date. Writing: Invitations Back Slide53: Reference Answer to Summary Writing Although the priority use of early radio was for maritime safety, its potential for entertainment was recognized from its inception. Since the sign-on of the first commercial radio station, the radio industry has enjoyed tremendous popularity, providing listeners with endless hours of entertainment and information. When radio broadcasts first began, musical managers feared radio. Eventually, however, the show business came to recognize radio as a way of stimulating sales and generating additional revenue streams. Today, U.S. music radio stations pay a great deal of money to songwriters and composers for the right to perform their compositions.
