This week we began forming our radio show groups! This week and next week we are to work on creating a radio show with classmates on any topic. I am in a group with Conner, Ariel, Audra and Morgan. We met over Zoom on Wednesday to talk about what we wanted our radio show to look like. We all liked the topic idea of discussing childhood memories, whether light-hearted or funny, and we were thinking of then somehow tying it in with our college experiences. There was consensus on the fact that it might be hard to connect a childhood memory with an experience in college, however, we felt like those connections would come naturally as time goes on, but we also didn’t know how to transition to the two parts (childhood memories and college experiences). How do we manage the time and allow everyone to share within 25-30 minutes? How long will our stories be? We will also have around 6 minutes of radio bumpers and commercials, so that gives us around 24 minutes for content. We do not have a group name yet, but we are in the process of making our poster. We felt that a group name would come after we record. For our poster, we all were to create a Then-Now-Together as a square image, and then we will be putting everyone’s together! Everyone will create a radio bumper and a commercial and then we are going to pick three bumpers and three commercials to put into our show.
We are planning on recording next Wednesday via Zoom, but meeting this Monday to discuss our ideas so we don’t go into the show on Wednesday cold turkey. I’m a little nervous in terms of putting all the content together in time, but hopefully it will all work out!
