Welcome bright young things 😎
We’re listening to and thinking about how to structure a radio talk break.
It can also be referred to as an ad-lib, rave, step-down, link, speed-break etc.
John Simmons from Broadcast Bionic does a good job in briefly taking you through a typical day in live radio land:
What do you listen to? Which DJ, announcer or broadcaster do you relate to?
- Write 100 words on the radio personality that you most relate to: what is it about their style, language, humour, personality, etc. that appeals to you.
- Script 4-5 talk breaks of your own.
Be aware that you’ll be heard in and around music, commercials, promos, etc.
Try to make each break have a clear beginning, middle and end.
Record the breaks on your device.
Upload to your Student Weekly Tasks folder in the Google drive.
Next week: inclusive language
Plan, prepare, produce and record a group or pair show. Let’s discuss how can we can achieve this remotely. It is possible!
This segment from BBC Radio 1 Breakfast with Greg James is pacey, fun and inclusive in that it’s a lot about everyday life and generally doesn’t preclude anyone.
Meet back in Zoom at 3:25, for feedback and discussion.
