UMG Country Artists Coming To A Motorola Phone Near You

Nov. 30, 2005
By Ken Tucker



As the result of a deal announced in early October with Universal Music Group (UMG), Motorola’s forthcoming cell phone-based iRadio service will feature channels fashioned around UMG country artists, including George Strait, Shania Twain, Reba McEntire, Vince Gill, Trisha Yearwood and Lee Ann Womack. iRadio is expected to launch in the first quarter of 2006.

“We can now create specific radio channels that are dedicated to their artists and include much, much more than simply music,” Motorola director of product marketing Dave Ulmer tells Billboard Radio Monitor.

An artist’s channel might, for example, include tour dates, album release dates, new singles and back catalog. “A whole selection of stuff that’s very focused to their specific fan and gives [artists] a direct connection to that fan,” Ulmer says.

iRadio users, who will pay between $7 and $10 a month for the service, will make their channel selections via their PC and then download them to their cell phone via a USB connection. However, iRadio content is perishable, meaning that once it is listened to it is gone.

Using Bluetooth technology, the iRadio programming can also be played over a car radio or home stereo system.

Listeners will be able to purchase albums and concert tickets or respond to exclusive promotions simply by pressing a button on their phone or existing car stereo.

Motorola phones are used by Verizon, Cingular, T-Mobile, Nextel and Sprint customers

I know some of you think this is great, but to me it is just another way to part us from our money.

Yes indeed...between cable and satellite TV, cell phones, credit cards, satellite radio, the electric company and the gas company, the magazine subscriptions, the supermarket, the automobile dealers, the mall etc they all are sucking all our hard-earned money up faster than we can make it...let us remember we own our money and we should be the ones that decide how to spend it...if we are stupid enough to give it to every one who advertises in the universe we deserve our fate in life...Shania's Ka-Ching said something about this...I guess we here in North America didn't see the video on the boob tube so we just don't know any better.....

Sounds like another "junk" technology that we do not need!

It is almost as good as the cell phone that plays the tv from your home...

'Scuse me, my radio is vibrating
-- Shania Twain, George Strait, Lee Ann Womack and several other UMG artists will soon be featured on the forthcoming Motorola iRadio service's new Nashville channels.

You'll be able to listen to your favorite country music artist channels directly from your iRadio-capable mobile phone, beginning in the first quarter of 2006. The price tag will be between $7 and $10 per month.

An artist's channel might, for example, include tour dates, album release dates, new singles and back catalog.

Too bad the service isn't available on rotary phones.
