So first of all let me say it was fun doing the radio show this morning. It also wasn’t the easiest from my end but I still enjoyed it. While the rest of the class was tasked with planning the layout of the show with the segments, I was given the task of engineering the show. What this meant, was that I was responsible for checking the levels of audio being channeled out, but also providing music to be played along with instrumentals. I also took responsibility for the set up and striking of all needed equipment, inclusive of microphones, the mixer, headphones, xlr cables and any other cables that we would possibly need.
So our show was broadcast on the DS106 online radio stream, and we managed to get most of the class involved in some way or the other. We had a group do a commercial
which was prerecorded by a group of 3. The rest of the show took the form of a talk show with host and guests in the studio, along with a few members even doing freestyles for us.

I want to give credit to M.B. Smith for the above pics and Kwesi for the video clips I used above. The recording I did unfortunately only captured what was being played through the Mixxx software I used to provide the music, so it doesn’t have any of the voice recordings from the show. If we had set up a camera to record the event would be the closet that I could do to truly represent what transpired for the morning show. Who knows this opportunity may come again and I would want to be better at engineering the levels, and music simultaneously.
