Rock & Roll Hall of Fame

Several Timeless Favorites artists you hear on Life 103.1 are being honored with induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. The Class of 2014 includes Linda Ronstadt, Cat Stevens, Hall and Oates, and Kiss. Yes, Life 103.1 plays one song by Kiss! There have been 28 ceremonies that have inducted a total of 719 people into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. That number includes solo artists, groups, and people who have worked behind the scenes in the music industry. Some artists have been inducted more than once. Eric Clapton, for example, has been inducted three times: as a member of The Yardbirds, as a member of Cream, and as a solo act.

Perhaps you’ve wondered how the nominees are selected and inductees chosen for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. To be eligible for induction as an artist (performer, composer, or musician), the artist must have released a record, in the generally accepted sense of that phrase, at least 25 years prior to the year of induction and have demonstrated unquestionable musical excellence. Other factors considered include the artist's musical influence on other artists, length and depth of career and the body of work, and innovation and superiority in style and technique. Induction is also granted to music industry professionals such as songwriters, producers, disc jockeys, artists whose music predated rock and roll, and musicians.

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Foundation, comprised of more than 700 voters, selects nominees and then votes on who will be inducted each year. For this year’s inductions, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame again offered fans the opportunity to officially participate in the selection process. The public was able to cast votes online for whom they believe to be most deserving of induction. The top five artists, as selected by the public, comprised a “fans’ ballot” that was tallied along with the other ballots to choose the 2014 inductees. Three of the top five artists from the fans’ ballot will be inducted in 2014.

The 29th Annual Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony takes place on Thursday, April 10, 2014, at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
 

Life 103.1 Named Radio Station of the Year!

News Release
SANFORD, NC (June 26, 2013) – Life 103.1 WLHC-FM has been named 2013 Radio Station of the Year (Non-Metro) by the North Carolina Association of Broadcasters (NCAB).  Life 103.1 President Alan Button accepted the award on behalf of the station at the NCAB’s Annual Convention in Greensboro at the Grandover Resort on Monday, June 24, 2013.

A regional station licensed to Moore County, with studios and offices in Sanford, Life 103.1 was honored in the non-metro category for its innovative programming, audience engagement, and commitment to the community in 2012.

Station President Alan Button said, “We were surprised – and thrilled – to be honored.  There are so many fine radio stations across North Carolina.  It was an unexpected special addition to the celebration of our 10th anniversary on the air this month.”

The Life 103.1 weekday format is “Timeless Favorites” music, information, and lifestyle features that seek “to affirm all that is good about Life in the Heart of Carolina.”  Weekends include bluegrass on Saturday morning and evening, as well as praise and worship music on Sunday mornings.

According to Button, “Our audience growth in recent years has been overseen by a staff team dedicated to quality and professionalism – including our former station manager, Steve Koranda, who, though he died of cancer in July 2012, set the standard for us last year.  Our staff strives to distinguish the station from other media outlets on behalf of our listeners and advertising partners by combining a priority for localization, community, and immediacy with the power and presence of a big-market sound.”

A June 2013 Arbitron report notes that on an average weekly basis radio now reaches 242.5 million listeners, or 92 percent of those age 12 and older.  Life 103.1 WLHC-FM can be heard on air in some 11 counties in central North Carolina and on the Internet at www.life1031.com.
