Mixcloud launched the second edition of the Online Radio Awards in association with the International Radio Festival earlier this summer.

Submissions were open for best music show, best talk show and best station across different genres and categories and the winners were decided by a public and industry panel vote.

Today 24 winners were announced across a number of categories and territories and I am so incredibly excited to share that the Jazzman Records radio show on NTS was voted the best jazz show of 2015!

Many thanks to all of you who voted for us! Both me and Gerald really do appreciate all your continuous support when it comes to both our shows and the various releases on our labels. We never expected to get nominated for this award, let alone win, and we definitely couldn’t have done it without your help.

You can catch our show LIVE every fourth Friday on NTS Radio between 12-2pm – with the next one coming up on the 21st of August.

Vinyl Factory Podcast: The issue with reissues

By June 2, 2015 Music, Orsi recommends

Discussing the issue with reissues is me plus Jonny Trunk from Trunk Records, Quinton Scott from Strut Records and deputy editor of The Wire, Derek Walmsley.

The podcast is split into three parts, the first tackling the divisive question of Record Store Day and the flood of major label reissues it facilitates, as well as the question of ‘audiophile’ pressings, heavyweight vinyl and what this actually means for the consumer. The second will take a look at the proliferation of reissues and compilations charting scenes from around the world and the ethical questions that arise from this, while the third will round things off by looking at archival reissues and what this means for music being made and released on vinyl today.
