Back on target with this show – although I think you had two weeks of it playing as a recording on the station…ooops! Despite the hot weather we have been experiencing recently in the UK, we start the show with Cloudbusting by Kate Bush and have the NHS Choir singing Bridge over Troubled Waters. We have an update on the Juno probe as it orbits Jupiter and discuss if you match the personality linked to the day you were born by the 1838 rhyme. Don’t worry, we also manage to squeeze in the riddle and the anagram game – so much in one show! How do we do it!
In this show we enjoy the music from Blood Brothers, Cats and Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. The song requests are from musicals which I have never heard of, let alone seen, but both were great choices and we discuss whether we can play operas and operettas on the musical show. Coupled with the regular features of the lyrics game and clues to the musicals, it a show that you will certainly be singing along to!
Well, I’m sure there is a saying that if something happens three times in a row then it has become a thing – or am I making that up? This week we waffle about the hot weather, what is happening in the gaming world and top films. Also – what are your favourite books and are you able to guess the TV theme tune from just the introduction? All this and some classic pop music including Wham, Bucks Fizz and Kelly Clarkson.
Sorry for the delay in uploading this show but there is still plenty of time to enjoy the chilled out music from The Osmonds, ABBA, Will Young and Travis. The interesting facts include the unique event which happened on the 18th February 1979 and why should not use the word ‘pants’ if you were ever back in time in the 1880s! There is also the regular riddle and the anagram game, so why not grab a pen and pencil and listen in.
Stealing the famous quote from Martin Luther-King I would like you all to know that I have this dream. It’s not a big dream or even one which encompasses world peace. It is in fact quite a small dream and one which, when compared to Martin Luther-King’s quote, I feel quite inadequate actually quoting him. When I started along my journey in Radio Land I knew that I wanted to present but I also had another aim in mind. With the station becoming more established this aim has rose to the surface and, during the last week, I have been working hard to start to make the dream become a reality – what is it that dream? I want you to become part of the team!
There is quite a gap between having the idea and concept for your show to actually broadcasting, and most of this time is taken up with planning and preparation with quite a lot of energy thrown in for good measure! In order to ensure that all your shows go as fluid as possible I recommend that you take the time to plan these in detail. In order to help you with this, here is an insight to my own planning process and the software I use.
Yes it managed to make it to a second show! In this show we had music from One Direction, the hip gyrating Ricky Martin and the Five Young Cannibals. In the waffling segments we looked at the top five games currently being played, the new Overwatch Hero – Ana and how far would you go for beautiful skin? All this and the Top five quiz and Guess the Theme Tune! What more could you want from a radio show? – and don’t shout prizes!
So – the moment has eventually arrived and you are ready for your first broadcast. The show is planned, your content on the website is up to date and ready and you have decided on the time and date for your first show. This is the final post which will show you have to actually connect up to the station and what to do for those final preparations. Nearly there!
So you have your show created**, your software organised ** and you are almost ready to start broadcasting but wait, there is something else you can do before you actually click the LIVE button to support your own show and let people what is happening. Don’t worry, this isn’t a huge list of jobs to do and they are all simple, but does require an image of you, so get ready with that camera!
Whenever you start a new project there are always several things which can be barriers or, if we let them, excuses. Setting up an internet radio station IS expensive and can take loads of time and, I talk from experience here, energy. However, if you are looking to join the station and have your own show then I have hopefully removed as much of the cost of broadcasting for you as possible. So, no excuses, here is the software you can use to get online and sharing your show with the world!
