This is Andy with some inspiration from back in the days… 2005 I visited the Pals down in OZ and toured stations in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. Here is some stuff I found today while digging in my archives (I was looking for some stuff to play at a workshop). It was great to meet Rick Wade, Matt “Blacko” Nikolic, Sidey, KCB and David Konsky. Australia was an awesome experience, a one in a lifetime vacation and I am still inspired by the skill set and production quality the guys deliver every day. Today I want to highlight a guy who doesn’t like the spotlight too much, but to me Matt Nikolic is one of the Godfathers of modern CHR IMAGING… This is stuff from 2003!!! UNBELIEVABLE!

Getting an award with radio imaging is like the biggest honor and pleasure for a radio producer.
We reached out to this year’s ACRA (Australian Commercial Radio Award) winner in the category of ‘Best Achievement in Production’ – Triple MMM’s Michael ‘Sideshow’ Andersen. After getting the title against talents like David Konsky, Steve Hunt, Brendan Tacey and more, he’s here to share his blueprint for getting an imaging award:
1. create great imaging
2. chop it together in a nice way
3. crate even more great imaging
4. chop it together in an even nicer way
In all honesty, there is nothing like a blueprint for how to win awards. Work hard, be dedicated, try new things, look for great mentors, get inspired – do remarkable work. This won’t guarantee an award, but it guarantees you being an important member of the imaging community….get inspired by Sidey’s awesome work

I don’t use this word very often, but this time I have to. Attached you hear a MASTERPIECE, a true MASTERPIECE of IMAGING (Perfect music, perfect  interview material, technically perfect etc…) It is the story of Kristian Anderson. A brave man fighting cancer, knowing he could only extend his live and would not be able to win the battle. It is a celebration of live and showcases the heart of a warrior, the heart of a man on a mission. A man, who wants to make people aware! Bowel Cancer is a preventable disease – go and get tested every year.

My friend Michael “Sidey” Andersen put together this remarkable promo. (Sidey is also the winner of this years RAP Awards)

The gift giving is almost over, but a little present is left. My old friend Sidey from OZ sent something over to help us enjoy xmas even a little more and listen to this magic stuff, while getting fat.

We love you Michael ‘Sideshow’ Andersen. Great work as always. Guys, take this as an inspiration for great script writing and imaging.

Now back to the great chow-down!

You might know him as Sidey or “Sideshow” Mike Andersen. He is the Imaging guy for Triple M in Sydney, a VO artist and since a few an oscar nominated actor :)…

Like you see: HE is Mr. Triple M! I am thrilled to present you the multi award winning Michael Andersen. I met Sidey when I was hanging in Sydney in 2005 and he was one of my big influencers in what I call content related or creative radio imaging. He had that special something in his writing, his production and as a person. Sidey to me is one of the best writers and creators in the business. His style is ultra creative, surprising and really really funny.
