Assignment:Radio Bumper 3 stars
Assignment Description: “Now that we have a #ds106 radio up and running creating a 15 to 30 second bumper for the station. What is a bumper? It is a short recording that identifies the radio station with signature music or an expression that makes sure the listeners know what they are tuned into (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bumper_(broadcasting)). So for ds106 it should certainly include “DS106 Radio” and some sort of message about the station with voice over music. “
Rodeo Radio: This bumper is going to be a part of our radio show. My bumper is going to kick off the show, and hopefully it will get listeners interested enough to listen to the rest of our show.
How the magic is made: the bumper isn’t very long, but I still wrote out what I was going to say in preparation. I used audacity to both record and layer western sounds for the bumper. I faded in and out so that hopefully, the transition could be smoother. Lastly, I uploaded to sound cloud again so that I could embed the track into the post.
