When I first read that we were going to have to create a twenty minute radio show, my jaw nearly dropped. Right then and there I knew I was in way over my head. Being that we were assigned partners, it definitely helped. It allowed us to brainstorm and collaborate on different ideas of what we wanted to talk about. I am still not up to date on various technologies, especially when it comes to Mac’s so it was great that my partner knew a thing or two about it. The first thing that was tough was let alone listening and accepting my own voice. I was convinced that I sounded like a man. We wanted to create a show that people can relate and have an interest in, so we decided to broadcast about the blackout that happened on campus. Once our topic was figured out, everything started to fall into place. We had to be creative and not afraid to step out of our comfort zones. Our group was timid at first and dreaded talking out loud and recording. But once we warmed up to the idea, we had fun with it and made the best of the situation. We loosened up and had some good laughs throughout. But not everything is all fun and games.
Once we thought we were almost done, we unexpectedly ran into some technical difficulties. Go figure. This very well tested our patience and willingness to not give up. Everything just seemed to be going wrong and not in our favor. It was very time consuming and overwhelming. Even when we had all the materials in order and knew what we were going to say, putting it together piece by piece was very tedious and annoying for lack of better terms. But all in all, we came out on top and can proudly say that we accomplished out goal. Our show turned out to be better than we anticipated. It was a learning experience that I will never forget. Creating a radio show takes hard work but when you get to sit back and listen to your accomplishment, it makes it all worth it in the end. Check it out!
