Yesterday, our CT 244 class all came together and went live on the DS106 live stream radio. To be honest, it was better than I expected! After deciding last week that we were all going to be a part of the radio show, each group quickly came together and started to rehearse and come up with their parts. Lisa and Khalil decided that they were going to be in charge of everything. Jason was our engineer of our show, while everyone else each who decided to be in the radio show, contributed their parts in each segment.
In the beginning, Maya introduced the show and introduced our class. Then, Khalil started his “Turn Down for What?!” segment. This segment was really fun to listen to. After that segment was complete, Alicia, Laywah, and I’s commercial came on, which was us discussing a little about each one of the Zodiac’s sign and how each of their personalities are.
Even though I was unable to stay for the entire radio show, my absolute favorite part was the segment where Melvin and Khalil both rapped. I had no idea that they could rap like that. They did a rap that they both personally wrote themselves. That just shows how creative they both are. It also shows how much thought they put into the radio show. When they were rapping, I could tell that how much passion they have. I liked how Melvin told the audience how he writes best when he’s going through a hard time. It made it look as though he had a strong connection with the listeners. When I heard Khalil’s rap, I was really impressed. He did an amazing job, and he’s a great rapper.
Lisa made a great host. She really should think about being a radio announcer. She showed great enthusiasm and sounded hyped, which is very important for the listeners because then they will enjoy listening to the show more. I would also like to thank Lisa for being in doughnuts for the class before our live show, that was really thoughtful and kind of her. 🙂 However, Jayson, who was our engineer was the most important part of this radio show. He controlled all the sounds, and switched us from “commercial” to “on the air.” He did a great job on that.
Overall, I think our class did an extraordinary job with the radio show. Everyone who contributed did a great job. Thank you to Professor Smith for giving us the idea of a radio show, and also helping along the way. Our radio show was a success!
