    Week Seven: DJ Ashleigh’s Comeback


    While this week didn’t require any remixing, I did revisit Audacity to layer and edit multiple audio clips.

    Grab a Box of SuperOats!


    I decided to create a commercial as part of my contribution to our group project. I hoped to incorporate the superhero theme while also making something that you might actually hear on the radio. I’ve heard several radio commercials about cars and events. Yet where did my mind go? Food, …

    Radio Bumper


    Most of the bumpers I remember hearing were quick, animated, and consisted of several vocal effects and fun sounds. I used the first 10 seconds of this video to help inspire the writing and speaking style I’d use. Then I recorded myself with my apple headphone mic.

    Tweet Tweet


    I tuned into the radio show on Wednesday evening for an episode of Jessica Jones and really enjoyed the experience. This was my first time live-tweeting and I hope to do it again. I loved the sense of community I felt just from everyone sharing their thoughts in real time. …
