EPISODE 135: JAMES STODD
I can safely say my guest is a “ROCK GUY” and that is both a compliment and true. He would also be the first to tell you it’s what he loves and what he has done his entire career. The thing is, he also does a ton more. Malcom Ryker is the Creative Services Director (Radio Imaging) at iHeartMedia San Diego.
Malcom also serves as the “Rock Guy” iHeart’s national production team. He voices countless stations across the US, mostly Rock and Alt, in big markets like NYC, Dallas, Atlanta, San Francisco etc. JAMES STODD is Group Production Director – Celador Radio plus Classic Rock Imaging Producer at Benztown. James is a UK based Radio Imaging producer who has held a well rounded variety of jobs. From his start as a “jock” in college to Radio Mercury in Crawley where he got his start with Production among other stops along the way, eventually he would land at Capital Network and then Head of Production at Capital FM 95.8 in London. We discuss all of that and more plus general UK radio topics, managing a team, being a team of one, working on large regional networks at all levels and of course a bit of tech and audio talk. I mentioned it in the beginning but I’ve known James for a while and my first impression remains true today: he is a highly-skilled producer and manager and is very good at discussing this business…plus he is a pretty nice guy…A true English Gentleman!
