Marketplace

Week of November 30

Marketplace (PM)

  • Kai talks with Principal Krista McKinney King, of the Randolph Career and Technical Center in Detroit, about vocational/tech ed in the pandemic at Randolph and what she calls “the mindset of success”.
  • Many struggling families depend on big charities/organizations like Toys for Tots to bring the holidays to their children–and millions of toys are collected each year at big retailers like Target, where customers can buy a toy and donate it on the spot, or at offices and companies, or they are ordered online. Marketplace’s Kristin Schwab looks the logistics of the big holiday food and toy drives. 

Marketplace Tech

Climate change reporting

  • November 30: We speak with the CEO of BlocPower, a startup that is using software to identify old buildings that could save a lot of money by modernizing their utility systems, and creating a new financial product to help fund the work.
  • December 1: Moody’s recently acquired a data company that analyses the financial risks of climate changes. We talk with Emily Mazzacurati, founder of 427, the work they do and how it influences the decisions companies make around investments that could help us adapt.
  • December 2: A key theme of adaptation is decentralization – moving off of one big power grid and creating little islands of power. That requires powerful batteries. But lithium ion batteries are basically maxxed out in terms of how much energy they can store. Kristin Persson and Gerd Ceder study battery technology at the University of California, Berkeley.  

Classical

Performance Today

December 2: Performance Today will showcase the broadcast premiere of Chris Brubeck’s “Time Out Suite,” a jazzy orchestral homage to his father, Dave Brubeck. Dave Brubeck’s 100th birthday is December 6.

NEW: Time Machine from The Current

Time Machine from The Current is a sonic journey across music history. Each week, host Bill DeVille takes you back to the sounds of a specific year with a carefully curated list of the best songs. Plus, he’ll invite you to reexamine some deeper cuts as we look back on what happened that year in music, pop culture and the world.

December 4: 1990

  • Santana became a pop star releasing one of the biggest albums of the year and the biggest of his long-respected career. Nu Metal was still big as Korn’s Issues album debuted at #1 on the charts while Macy Gray issued her debut. Boy bands like Backstreet Boys & NSync ruled the pop charts. Meanwhile Wilco dropped Summerteeth, Magnetic Fields released the cult classic 69 Love Songs and the Glasgow Scotland band Travis emerged. Napster debuted and we first learned what file sharing is. Outside of music, the low budget indie film The Blair Witch Project was one of the most talked about films of the year, the San Antonio Spurs win the franchise’s first championship, and former grocery store stocker Kurt Warner is the talk of the NFL winning the MVP and the Superbowl for the St. Louis Rams.

November 20: 1967 – The Summer of Love

  • The Beatles spent months in the studio creating Sgt Pepper, you had Haight Ashbury, the Monterey Pop Festival, and the height of soul music. The war in Vietnam was escalating, along protests and civil rights riots hitting American streets. Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, and the Velvet Underground released their debuts. Psychedelic classics arrived form Pink Floyd, Cream, and Love, while The Jefferson Airplane and Grateful Dead established the San Francisco sound. Sam and Dave and Wilson Picket topped the charts, while the big loss in music was the plane crash death of Otis Redding, in the same year that Aretha Franklin topped the charts with her version of Respect. Wilt the Stilt dominated basketball leading the 76ers to a championship, Bob Gibson won three games leading the St Louis Cardinals to the World Series, and Vince Lombardi’s Green Bay Packers won the first Super Bowl.

An important update regarding The Slowdown

The last episode of The Slowdown for radio broadcast will be on January 15, 2021.

Dear colleagues –

I am writing to deliver some important news about The Slowdown. After much consideration, the show has decided to put the podcast on hiatus and discontinue radio distribution of the program. We’d like to thank Tracy K. Smith, Pulitzer Prize winner and former U.S. Poet Laureate, and The Slowdown team for delivering to public radio airwaves a unique way to see the world each day though five minutes of poetry. In a note to her fans, host Tracy K. Smith wrote:

“As the season shifts, I’m also shifting, giving my attention back to family, to writing poems of my own, and to my wonderful students. I will miss this practice of rising early to write my Slowdown episodes or staying up late to record them. But I’ll hold on tightly to the joy that all of this has fostered in my life, which won’t end when the Slowdown goes on hiatus later this month.”

Tracy K. Smith

To make this transition as seamless as possible for stations who currently carry The Slowdown, we recommend reviewing the details below.

  • Episodes will be provided through Fri, Jan 15, 2021, with encore episodes running November 2 – Jan 15.
  • APM will provide a sunset promo, available on Content Depot.
  • Tracy will mention at the top of the Jan 15 show that it is the final broadcast.

Alternative programs that we recommend in place of The Slowdown include:

  • Marketplace Tech – From Marketplace’s Molly Wood, this four-minute weekday module tells the stories of modern life through our digital economy.
  • Composers Datebook – In this two-minute module, host John Birge presents a daily snapshot of composers’ past and present with timely information, intriguing musical events, and appropriate, accessible music related to each.

If you have any questions about this transition or alternative programming, do not hesitate to reach out to your Station Relations Representative.

Best,
Chandra Kavati
Vice President of Distribution and Underwriting, American Public Media

Interim/Winter Schedules and new Media Partner Centre

Two big transitions are coming to the BBC World Service later this month – the changeover to Interim/Winter schedules to account for daylight saving time, and the sunset of the old BBC Partner Site coinciding with launch of the new Media Partner Centre. Please share this email with any of your colleagues who access schedule or rundown details.

BBC World Service Schedule Changes

Given differences between the U.S. and U.K. in daylight saving time schedules, the BBC World Service will be on a one-week interim schedule prior to the winter schedule.

The 2020 interim winter schedule is effective Sunday, Otober 25 through Saturday, October 31, 2020.

Interim schedule highlights:

  • Newshour
    • Weekday editions remain the same, with an extra edition at 5 p.m. ET
    • Weekend 4 p.m. ET editions remain consistent during the interim schedule week, with an extra edition at 5 p.m. ET
    • Weekend 8 a.m. ET editions shift one hour to 9 a.m. ET. This change impacts scheduling on Sunday, October 25 and Saturday, October 31
  • BBC OS returns to 2 hours and will air weekdays at 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. ET. Note: each hour is stand-alone, and will shift to 11 a.m. and 12 p.m. for the Winter schedule

The 2021 winter schedule is effective Sunday, November 1, 2020 through Saturday, March 13, 2021.

Winter schedule highlights:

  • Core news programs (Newshour, Newsday, BBC OS) remain consistent with previous (non-interim) schedules
  • The Newsroom will remain consistent, except for the 6 p.m. edition which shifts 1 hour to 5 p.m. as in previous winter schedules
  • Program note: The new weekly half-hour program The Climate Question will lauch on Monday, November 16

Find these schedules on our website. Please review them carefully and contact your Station Representative with any questions.

Media Partner Centre

Earlier in the year, the Media Partner Centre launched and has been running in parallel with the Partner Site throughout the summer. This fall, on October 26, the Partner Site will cease to be updated and will redirect to the new Media Partner Centre, which will move forward as the main resource for all BBC affiliate stations.

Starting on October 26, the Media Partner Centre will be where you can download:

  • Daily rundowns for live news programs
  • Audio files for non-live programs
  • Any other items that you would normally access on the Partner Site

As previously communicated, one major change on the Media Partner Centre is that credentials are assigned to individual users instead of stations. If you have any staff that still need to apply for credentials, please have them do so via this form before October 26. On the APM Distribution BBC Partners page, we have a full description of the changes, walkthroughs for the BBC Login and credentialing process (including if your credentials have lapsed), and links to pdf and virtual guides for the new Media Partner Centre. Please take some time to familiarize yourself with the new site, or contact your Station Representative with any questions.

Produced by WBUR in Boston, On Point’s vibrant conversation covers everything from breaking news to ancient poetry, and features writers, politicians, journalists, artists, scientists and ordinary citizens from around the world.

On Point announced its transition from a two-hour call-in program to a one-hour format earlier this summer. In its new form, the show will aim to take deeper dives on newsworthy subjects with more highly produced and narrative segments. The new On Point fits beautifully into the APM portfolio along with The Daily, BBC World Service and Marketplace.

Meghna Chakrabarti

Meghna Chakrabarti serves as host and editor of On Point. Based in Boston, she is on the air Monday through Thursday. She is the former host of Radio Boston, WBUR’s acclaimed weekday show with a focus on news, in-depth interviews with extraordinary people, and analysis on broader issues that have an impact on Boston and beyond. She also served as the primary fill-in host for Here & Now, NPR and WBUR’s co-produced national midday news program. And she is the host of Modern Love: The Podcast, a collaboration of WBUR and The New York Times.

We commit to working closely with stations who currently carry On Point to make the transition as seamless as possible. More details will be provided soon, but in the meantime if you have any questions do not hesitate to reach out to your station relations representative.

FAQ’S:

Will there be a new subscription page in ContentDepot?

Through the end of the calendar year you should continue to get On Point through the existing ContentDepot feed. We will be working with NPR to switch over automations and will run concurrent streams for a period of time. Watch your inbox and ContentDepot for further detail and links.

Which network will bill us?

Stations currently carrying On Point will continue to be billed by NPR through December 2020, then APM will begin billing starting January 2021. We will work with you closely to make this a seamless transition.
