3/15/24 – 3/29/24

For weeks 9 and 10 we will be working on producing long-form audio narratives, AKA radio shows. The shows will be broadcast on ds106radio the week after they are due.

The radio show will be a group project. You will have two weeks to complete the project. These are the specifications:

As you found out during Intro to Audio week, audio editing is time consuming. Plan to be done early and you will probably be done on time.

  4. Audio Assignments:  Complete at least 2. You should use your audio assignments to develop content for your radio show (bumpers, commercials, intros/outros/transitions, etc.). We are assigning these this week so that you make progress on developing content for your shows! If you do random assignments just to make the quota you are wasting your time and efforts. Feel free to bend or create assignments to suit your needs.
