Interview with Lea Waters

I nailed this interview and i’m not afraid to admit it. It helped that this was a topic that I was excited about, and I knew that Lea would be receptive and informative. I had done enough research on the topic of Positive Psychology that I could identify what is was that the audience needed […]

Show One Wrap Up

In the lead up to our first show we had a session at the studio to record our one hour of show. I was really nervous about presenting, however it struck just how easy this was. I felt that Kenton was easy to converse with, however at times I felt that it wasn’t quite as […]

Panel Training. W4

Community Radio Broadcasting Codes of Practice W2

Community broadcasters differ a great deal from one to the other. This is because each one is designed to reach a different audience: educational, Indigenous, religious, differently abled, youth, senior or LGBTIQ communities.

The radio is fed by the community, and in turn the community ethos is reflected in all broadcasting. The greatest example of this are the sponsorship announcements that are fed through out a program. As Bruce stated, this […]

Radio Affordances W1

Notes: Following our first class I have been thinking about the affordances of radio. In Writing Media Texts and Editing Media Texts we spent a lot of time building soundscapes. I feel that sound is a very powerful sense – in the same way that a smell can take you back to an exact time […]
