THE CHANGING FACE OF RADIO with ELIZABETH MCCARTHY
Radio is one of the so-called ‘legacy’ media, yet it seems to constantly be with us. Is there something inherent in this platform that is just eternally relevant? Or is it a matter of people constantly working to adapt and reinvent?
We talk with our guest today about just such things, as well as how to get a foot in the door if you find radio or audio media calling your name.
Our guest is ELIZABETH MCCARTHY, Talks Producer at 3RRRFM Melbourne, as well as member of the B.Comm(Media) Industry Advisory Committee and graduate of the program!
Tune in to BComm Media student Amy Hanley’s piece, ‘THE CONDUCTOR’, first broadcast tonight (and also available as a podcast anytime) on ABC Radio National’s Soundproof . It’s a wild sonic ride produced this semester for an assignment in her Media 2 studio, ‘Radio’s new Wave’ (picked up by ABC during the studios Week 7 critical feedback session which included external industry guests). Soundproof is a top-shelf show in radio-feature and audio arts land.
From the ABC RN site:
The Conductor is an experiential representation of the physiological experience of gambling.
What really goes on between player and poker machine? Well many things.
Not only are poker machines themselves generating electricity but so does the person playing them. The electro-dermal activity of the person playing, other wise known as the changes in a person’s skin conductance levels, can be used to indicate how arousing poker machine play can be, particularly for problem gamblers.
