1 Comment on Wire Buyers: The Final Cut

We did it.  Our first group project, and my first experience with making a radio show.  Never thought I’d be doing any sound editing, much less participating in producing a show for airing on radio.  How cool is that?  I have a new appreciation for how much work goes into taking sound and making more sound out of it.  What learning experience this has been!

2 Comments on Proposition Joe’s Commercial

This was fun because I went way back in time to pull some old ads for an appliance repair and sales shop in Detroit called Highland Appliance.  They had several commercials for TV and radio, but I settled on the one featuring a “Yes Man” with a reference to Hurricane Agnes which hit our area back in 1972.  I liked the retro feel of the thing...

5 Comments on The Wired Child – A Brainstormed Radio Show

I keep seeing what I think of as “young” themes of childlike elements recurring in episodes of “The Wire”. Maybe it’s child-like innocence? Maybe it’s an innocence that’s lost, or wistfully hoped for but never attained in our view into inner city Baltimore.

My vision for an audio project is a radio show episode of “The Wire” tying together some of these “young” themes...
