Peter K. O'Connell Hot AC Radio Imaging Demo

As a guy who started (and pretty much finished) my radio career working in a Hot AC format, it was probably about time that I fired up the microphone and recorded my new Hot AC radio imaging demo.


Peter K. O'Connell Hot AC Radio ImagingPeople in radio are familiar with the term Hot AC (AC being Adult Contemporary). For those not so sure what the format includes, HOT AC plays most popular mix of music from the 90’s through today. The Hot AC format is most often music-intensive, Top 40 radio for adults, without so much rap or heavy metal/hard rock. And of course, it features a great station voice…ahem.

There are a ton of popular musicians featured in this format which includes but not limited to Adele, Coldplay, Kelly Clarkson, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Pink and of course Taylor Swift.

The big names in Hot AC when I worked in radio included Michael Jackson, Hall & Oates, Kenny Loggins and Sade. Man, have things changed since the 80’s. But that’s as it should be.

Let me know if you’re a radio station General Manager, Program Director or Production Manager in need of a new station voice for a Hot AC station or any radio format. Cause I know a guy….

where is peter off to now?

Where's Waldo or Where's Peter?

If you’ve followed this blog at all, you know that I am a bit of a traveler. I have happily visited my voice-over friends from around the United States (from Vermont to Seattle) and Canada (from Toronto to, um…Toronto).

I’ve even kept a running log of how many states I have stayed over night in all my life and have ONLY 13 more states to go before I will have stayed over night in every state in the Union!

But there is a trip planned for THIS summer that will be the biggest trip I’ve taken in decades!!!

I will be landing in a place that is familiar but still fairly unknown to me. I expect it will be, quite seriously, life changing.

Would you like to go on this journey with me?

Stay tuned to this blog all summer long for updates and visits that I will document along the way.

I won’t be so much ‘shaking it off’ as I will be shaking it up!

Stay tuned and enjoy the ride with me. As with most things I do, this will be fun!
