Week 2 featured a large leap in the amount of work being produced for our music radio live show, with each member of the team working hard within their respective areas.

We had multiple meetings throughout the week in which we built upon our ideas from the first week and finalised them.

This week I did a multitude of different things for the live show. Firstly, I created a prototype radio clock for the show, as well as a prototype studio sheet for Joe P & Riya (Presenters) and myself (Producer). The studio sheet is a detailed time sheet that explains what is coming up when and features exact timings and lengths of segments. The radio clock is a colour-coded clock that shows what is happening in the radio show in slightly less detail than the studio sheet. It is colour coded so it is easier to follow and so that segments can easily be identifiable, e.g. news is pink, features are blue, advertisements are green.

I also spent some time with Harriet this week in which I helped give advice/shadow her create a prototype advertisement for the radio show.

Furthermore, I spent time with both Joe P and Riya this week, discussing various aspects of the show in detail and ironing out any kinks with the studio sheet timings and ensuring they felt comfortable with it.

Finally, we have finalised the feature ‘Britpop Master’, which will be in the vein of BBC Radio 2’s ‘Pop Master’ and will feature two contestants going head to head, answering questions on 90’s music. The winner will receive a yet to be confirmed prize. We have also been discussing our second feature, which may revolve around the game of “who tweeted this?”, where the contestant has to guess out of two people, which one tweeted it.

Over the next coming week, I will be meeting with the Head of Music, Joe Hockley, to finalise the playlist and put the finalised songs into the studio sheet, where any timing discrepancies can be ironed out. I am also meeting with the rest of the team on Monday the 20th November for a production meeting.
