Teenage Engineering’s new product is an insane radio boom box with some surprises

Delivered... Peter Kirn | Scene | Wed 30 Sep 2020 9:38 pm

Teenage Engineering has been teasing the OB-4 - sparking speculation that they might have a new instrument. Instead, we get a radio/boom box. But in typical Teenage fashion, it's not quite what you'd expect.

Club Zukunft is a special spot. Wedged between Zurich’s lively Langstrasse, a neighborhood notorious for its nightlife in one of Europe’s banking capitals, the casual passerby might not pick up on it straightaway. Arriving from the unobtrusive side entrance, the dim staircase past an oddly-placed gorilla statue leads down to the club’s large open dancefloor with countless disco balls decorating...


October Regulatory Dates for Broadcasters: License Renewals, EEO Reports, Carriage Elections, Quarterly Issues/Programs Lists and More

Delivered... David Oxenford | Scene | Tue 29 Sep 2020 3:18 pm

In many parts of the country, the air is turning crisp, the leaves are changing color, and kids are back in school (in some form), making it the perfect time to get caught up with regulatory dates and deadlines coming in October.  This is an unusual month where there are several routine regulatory deadlines – renewals, EEO filings, Quarterly Issues Programs Lists, and the must-carry/retransmission consent deadline, but no significant broadcast rulemaking comment deadlines, perhaps as we are nearing the end of the current administration which might not be around to finish any proceeding started now.

The routine deadlines include those for radio stations in Iowa and Missouri and TV stations in Florida, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands who should be putting the finishing touches on their license renewal applications, to be filed on or before October 1, along with the accompanying EEO program report.  Stations should also have their post-filing announcements ready and scheduled to begin airing on October 1.  Those announcements continue through December 16.  Stations are no longer required to air pre-filing announcements.  The schedule for post-filing announcements and sample announcement language is here for radio stations and here for TV stations.

Also due by October 1 are EEO public inspection file reports for stations in AlaskaFloridaHawaiiIowaMissouriOregonWashingtonAmerican SamoaGuamthe Mariana IslandsPuerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands that are part of a station employment unit with 5 of more full-time employees.  An employment unit is one or more commonly controlled stations in the same geographic area that share at least one employee.  By October 1, these reports are to be uploaded to the station’s FCC-hosted online public file and a link to that report needs to be placed on the homepage of the station’s website (if the station has a website).  If your station employment unit has fewer than five full-time employees, no report needs to be placed in your public file or on your website.

By October 1, television stations must elect must-carry or retransmission consent for multichannel video programming distributors (MVPD) that carry their signals.  Full-power and Class A TV stations must place in their online public inspection file by October 1 notice of whether they elect retransmission consent or must-carry carriage from their area’s MVPDs for the three-year cycle beginning on January 1, 2021 and ending December 31, 2023.  If the station has decided to change its election, it must notify the MVPD by email, to an address set out in the MVPD’s public file.  We summarized this new rule, here.

On or before October 10all TV and radio stations must upload to their public file their Quarterly Issues/Programs Lists for the 3rd quarter (July, August, and September).  The Quarterly Issues/Programs Lists are a station’s evidence of how it operated in the public interest, demonstrating its treatment of its community’s most significant issues.  As we have written previously, the FCC takes this requirement seriously and will fine stations, hold up granting license renewals, or both if it finds problems with a station’s compliance.  For a short video on complying with the Quarterly Issues/Programs List requirement, see here.

In advance of the FCC’s October 27 Open Meeting, we will be tracking any broadcast items that make it on the agenda.  Stay tuned to the blog throughout October for updates.

Looking ahead to early November, we note the closing of the general election lowest unit charge (LUC) window on November 3.  There has been a lot of media reporting suggesting that certain races—the presidential race being the highest profile—may not be decided by the 3rd or even the early hours of the 4th.  This situation could lead to campaigns continuing to advertise past November 3 to, for example, try to persuade state election officials to certify results, but there is no mechanism in federal law or the FCC’s rules to extend the LUC window past election day.  The only exception would be in those races that may have runoff elections occurring after November 3, which are considered new elections so that they would have their own 60-day LUC window.

These are just a few of the regulatory dates we are tracking for October and early November.  As always, read the blog and keep in close touch with your station’s counsel to be sure you are staying on top of the dates and deadlines that apply to your operation.


Marie Davidson: ‘We were the under-under-under of the underground’

Delivered... Laura Snapes | Scene | Tue 29 Sep 2020 9:00 am

The deliverer of electropop’s most withering putdowns talks club culture, workaholism and making French rock cool again

Empathy and gentle encouragement are all well and good, but sometimes you need browbeating into action. How else to explain the appeal of fitness instructors, BDSM and Marie Davidson? Since her first dancefloor-adjacent release in 2014, the French-Canadian producer has made intimidation her brand, disparaging the shallow side of club culture and its self-destructive behaviours in a voice that could shrivel ripe plums. It wasn’t just a pose, either. Each record, from Perte d’Identité (identity loss) to Adieu au Dancefloor (goodbye to the dancefloor) to her breakout, 2018’s Working Class Woman, sought enlightenment amid the sadistic aesthetic.

The latter was conceived as an “anti-burnout” record, even if lead single Work It, with its exhortations of “sweat dripping down your balls”, was often misinterpreted as a productivity doctrine: the real work, Davidson avowed at the song’s conclusion, was nurturing oneself. Planning to tour it for a year, then take a year’s sabbatical, she thought she had built-in limitations that would allow her to do just that. Yet she succumbed to burnout anyway, ending up plagued by chronic insomnia, a sleeping-pill addiction and strange rashes. “It’s like a domino effect,” she says. “You get caught in a spiral until you realise: this is not working any more.”

This Week in Regulation: September 19, 2020 to September 25, 2020

Delivered... David Oxenford | Scene | Sun 27 Sep 2020 5:04 pm

Here are some of the regulatory and legal actions and developments of the last week of significance to broadcasters, with links to where you can go to find more information as to how these actions may affect your operations.

  • The day before 2020 annual regulatory fees were due, the FCC extended the deadline from 11:59 p.m. on Friday, September 25 to 11:59 p.m. on Monday, September, 28. (Public Notice)
  • Broadcast trade publication TVNewsCheck published “A Broadcaster’s Guide to Washington Issues, our periodic survey of the legal and regulatory issues facing television   It is a good resource for both new and veteran broadcasters looking to understand the status of pending legal and regulatory issues for the television industry.
  • For stations looking to stay on top of their KidVid reporting, the updated form to be used for the 2020 Children’s Television Programming Report is now available and can be accessed through the FCC’s Licensing and Management System (LMS). Stations can begin to prepare the form, update it during the remainder of the year, saving the information to be ready to file in January.  The FCC reminds television broadcasters that the form cannot be finalized and submitted until January 1, 2021.  As a reminder, KidVid reports are now filed annually, not quarterly as they were until the rules were changed in 2019.  (Public Notice)
  • The FCC’s Media Bureau has waived the requirement for noncommercial educational (NCE) translator stations to send their carriage election notifications by email to multichannel video programming distributors (MVPD), as required under the FCC’s new carriage election requirements.  The waiver came out of a petition from PBS and the trade association America’s Public Television Stations who said that, in many cases, NCE translators do not even know which MVPDs are carrying them and have no easy way to determine this information, making notification time-consuming and costly with no practical benefit as NCE translators can only “elect” must-carry. (Memorandum Opinion and Order)

His intentions for the track are pure—to “just to make people dance and groove… that’s the goal.” This aim is also aided by his Senegalese-Swiss roots...
