In preparation for our collaborative radio show to be broadcast, I created a bumper to be broadcast on ds106radio as a teaser to get an audience tuned in July 3 @ 9pm EST.
This bumper was not too complicated to do. I wanted use clipped words and phrases, paired with appropriate music to portray the dire situation at hand. I listed the words and phrases that come to mind when I think of “zombie apocalypse” and feelings it might incur. After choosing my words and phrases to describe a zombie apocalypse and the underlying tone of my own segment, I selected Metallica’s Welcome Home (Sanitarium) as the musical accompaniment. Cropping it to a section of music and lyrics I deemed most fitting, I merged it with my voice track in Audacity and there you have it.
Hope it entices you to tune in to our (Group 2) show on ds106radio, July 3 @ 9pm EST!
**Special thanks to my group members (Mike Berta, Ben Harwood, Kevin Murphy, Ciara Norquist, and John Johnston) for their creative contributions in making this show awesome, especially Mike Berta, who so generously volunteered to host and had to suffer my tardiness related to our very real, local “Post-Derecho” apocalyptic power outages and struggles. Thanks everyone!
