    Mashin Up Up and Away

    This article by Melanie McBride and this article by Brian Lamb both deal with the modern phenomena of mash-ups and remixes.  In todays modern society remixes are found everywhere from music to movie (music being my personal favorite) and are almost a day to day commonality in our society.  We can hear and see them ...

    Radio: A lost and forgotten Art

    Making this radio show was quite the interesting experience.  It was hard, exciting, thrilling, and frustrating at times.  I loved the topic we chose (Bonnaroo) and working with my group members was really easy because we all got along and worked well together.  Recording the show was fluid and we all had very good radio ...

    Radio: An Illustrated Guide

    To be frankly honest I didn’t like this book one bit. ¬†I thought it made use of poor graphic novel techniques and was all over the place. ¬†It wasn’t very organized until the last couple of pages and then it just wasn’t that interesting. ¬†Yes it was informative and got the point across but it ...
