Assignment:Make Your Own Radio Commercial 3 Stars

Assignment Description: When you are driving in the car and a radio commercial comes on you might start to tune the radio out. But, if you were the person selling what the commercial was offering would you want people tuning it out or listening intently? Well, I would want people paying attention to my commercial! So, for this audio assignment pick a product or business you would like to promote and sell! Use a audio recording software such as soundcloud to record your commercial. Add in background music, edits, and provide full information of the business/product/services you are advertising. Try to create a radio commercial that grabs and maintains the audiences’ attention. On the side, write why you chose the object or business you are promoting and the process you used to create your commercial.

Lassies Lassos: This commercial will be incorporated into the “Rodeo Radio” show from this week’s radio assignment. The commercial is about a Lasso shop, because I figure that the people tuning into the radio for a rodeo would be the same people that might buy a lasso. I made the commercial 1 minute long, which I thought was an appropriate time for a commercial, not including transitions.


Process, Annotated: I used audacity for this assignment, as I will probably do with all the assignments this week. After already having a week with audacity, This assignment was surprisingly easy. I simply wrote out what I wanted to say for my commercial, and I recorded it using one take in audacity. I then went on youtube, and found a western song ( A fistful of dollars), and I used to convert the youtube file into an mp3. From here, I uploaded this mp3 file onto audacity. I could layer the sounds so that there is softer music in the background. Once the audacity project was done, I exported it and uploaded the file onto soundcloud so that I could embed it.
