Production week one was about the contribution of ideas for our music radio show. My group came to a conclusion of using rock n roll as our genre. We also discussed and shared roles so that it is organised and professional. My job roles are interactive producer and presenting. Finding a suitable name for the programme was quite challenging as I tried researching. We finally concluded on “diner” which I believe is the perfect name for our show. This is because it was one of the most popular restaurants around the 50’s and 60’s of which families and friends spent quality time together. For the next production day, I will be researching about different radio social platforms such as classic rock, gold radio, absolute radio, 24-7 motown, rock radio 1 and many more. This will give me an insight of how to organise the layout of our social platforms (diners).
For production week two , my group came up with a name for the OB which is called “the bar”. We also wrote a short script for the opening menu of our music radio show.We also confirmed the design of the logo as we wanted a bright colour which match the 50s and 60s rock “n” roll because it was fun and brightened moods. I was able to troll social media pages of different radio channels with the rock “n” roll genre.This gave me an insight of the layout of their pages. As the presenter, I tried recording the written script for the opening menu. This gave me an idea of how it was going to sound pre-recorded. Next week i will be creating logo suitable for out chosen theme and social media handles.
Production week four was about the productions and OB practices. My group made sure the instrumentals, presenter, guest sound good and that the microphones which links to the studio was on point.We also discussed the adverts and made a final decision of allowing everyone to get involved in the advertisement. We also edited the clock and tried arranging the playlists in the right order. I went to Camden to get pictures of 50s and 60s fashions and art works. I was able to get stunning pictures of outfits suitable for 50s and 60s. I created a logo for our show (diner) using bright colours which represent the 50s and 60s.
Production week four was the pilot week however before that i my group came together to put things such as the music playlist and documents together. I was able to make an advert about M&S. During the pilot, my role was the interactive producer as I was in charge of all the social media handles on Facebook and twitter. I used the social media platforms as a tool to communicate with the audience. I also played the role of a presenter and my feedback was to be more fun and engage the audience so that i do not sound like am reading a script.After the pilot my group got feedback to make sure the presenter interacts with the audience concerning our social media pages. We were also advice to use different playlist every week as the audience may not want too much of repeated music. For the adverts my groups feedback was to ensure we use different voice overs. Next week my group will work on the feedback and figure out other ways of improving the final show. We will do this by coming in early to work on the improvements.
Week five was the assessed show. on the final show my group started the day by discussing the feedback we got and ways to improve it. writing the news bulletins, putting together a playlist . The advertising team selected the adverts for the day. I handled all our social media. Informing the audience about our show. I filmed Facebook live, took pictures and tweets. Also as the presenter made sure this time I was more fluent and interactive with the audience.
