In our team me and Abie set off to create a musical radio show. The show would run for an hour and it would include 12 songs. We decided that we should put our songs in a structure that reflected a actual musical. For example the starting song from a musical to the song that introduces a character, right to the end where we would play a giant finishing number.

Our Show would be aimed towards old people and children. As there isnt many new musicals out in the industry so many elderly people would recognize  songs from musicals from the past. Children because musical songs are usually upbeat and appeal to children as they tell a story as well as have catchy music. It would air on sundays at 3-4 as most people would have a day off. So its the perfect time for any radio show.

During intro of anything goes Abby : Hello and welcome to Abby and Jake’s Spotlight hour! We will be playing all your favorite show tunes so lets start off with a little something from the show Anything Goes!

I feel our advert was a complete and utter success and it turned out to sound quite well after it was edited. Our content was well scripted and it fit together perfectly. Me and Abby worked on this project together and I feel we worked pretty well and our content was equally shared. We both produced an final edit of the radio show but in the end we decided to use Abby’s as it had all the necessary adjustments sir wanted us to add to our radio show.

At the end of this unit I can safely say I know how to successfully produce and put together a healthy radio show with playlists that match the genre of the radio show. The most difficult thing we had to do was the editing, the editing was altogether a very hard thing to do.

I did the original edit the one with just the audio remove any wrong pieces of audio and try and refine it. I then showed sir who then suggested I added music at  the beginning and end of the announcements for the music. Abby then edited all the music in. We then got the final piece which we are fairly proud off.

Me and Abby feel that we have reached the audience we wanted to reach to musical lovers within BOA we secured this by having a segment that featured a pre recorded feature of BOA musical theatre students. This would draw in students in musical theatre, there friends and even up and coming MT student wanting to join the new school year.
