In another first for Radiodays Europe a song is being created live on stage in the Songwriter session! This is just one of three sessions which are about creating content at the event in front of the audience giving a great focus on how things are done within radio and podcast.

This year the “audio summit” along with the name change to reflect radio audio and podcast, the new focus of the conference, contains the heads of radio from around Europe all of whom are women. There is very much a focus within the programme on diversity in radio; what does this mean and how can radio better serve the needs of diversity within station staff and for listeners.
