A new podcast hosted by Benztown President Dave “Chachi” Denes, entitled “Chachi Loves Everybody,” features Denes speaking with radio execs and programmers, brand builders and audio innovators who tell the stories behind their successes and share insights into building iconic brands through audio.
The first three episodes feature Emmis Radio President Rick Cummings, Los Angeles radio programmer Jhani Kaye and Sports Radio USA CEO Bob Moore. A fourth episode featuring Saga Communications VP/Programming Bob Lawrence will be released next week.
“We’re excited to bring the love to radio professionals – and all who love radio – through Chachi Loves Everybody,” Denes said in a release. “This podcast is a passion project and I hope you can hear that in each episode, as I get to the heart of what goes into building legendary audio brands and making the very best radio.”
Denes says the subjects of each interview are “personal heroes of mine and tell the fascinating and often funny stories behind their experiences in the ever-evolving medium of audio.” Each episode starts with “a toast to their success over each person’s favorite drink, which is not only telling in its own way, but helps set the mood to relax and get down to some no-holds-barred straight talk, easy interaction and great storytelling,” he continued.
