I know, I know, I’ve completed this before. However… that one was for the DS106 radio! Since we’re creating our own podcast, I’ve decided that I wanted to make a new one for ours! I really was excited about completing this! I made mine a little creepy with the background noise, since our first segment is horror based. It’s also October, so it’s totally appropriate that it’s creepy. I’m perfectly on schedule.
I recorded this on my computer, and anyone could tell I was trying to put more dialogue into this radio bumper. That’s what I wanted to do though, and I feel that I did that. This goes with the theme for our semester because what we’re talking about is movies from the 80’s. For my last bumper, I related it to Disney channel, but I decided for that this one I would do my best to make it sound like a radio bumper that podcasts would actually use. I actually am really proud of this one, and the creepy ambiance in the background helps a lot with tying all of it together.
Description: “Now that we have a #ds106 radio up and running creating a 15 to 30 second bumper for the station. What is a bumper? It is a short recording that identifies the radio station with signature music or an expression that makes sure the listeners know what they are tuned into (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bumper_(broadcasting)). So for ds106 it should certainly include “DS106 Radio” and some sort of message about the station with voice over music.”
