1 Comment on DSTW 76.5 Radio Show Review

Radio Show Live Tweet – DSTW 76.5

9pm Tuesday night – Syd and Travis with Groom and Bond

I thought there was a nice use of background music choices with spoken dialogue, such as “Lean on Me” when discussing Frank’s trying to keep his family and friends out of trouble and making deals with Greeks and cops.  There were more serious moments, but there were funny (okay, sorta dark/funny) moments like the “Sunny Meadows” addiction recovery commercial.

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 Orlando’s Gentlemen’s Club Commercial

It had to be done.

This is the result of several hours of wading through sound clips for clubs, bars, and various establishments with poles as a main feature.  My ears were bleeding, but I managed to get what I wanted into the commercial, and kept it classy (considering the material that ended up on the cutting room floor)...

1 Comment on Buyology of The Wire: Wired Buyers Promo

This is a promotional piece for our group radio show project called “Wired Buyers” where we focus on the product placement in HBO’s “The Wire”.  The show was rife with consumer products and we’re making a radio show largely made up of commercial ads, naturally given to hyperbole.

I took a circuit tree design from and put a green layer on it, with white neon highlighting.  I added text, with the same filters, to keep it subtle...

3 Comments on Stomping the “Wired Buyers”

My Work for Radio Show Group Project

Sept. 15 – I was asked by Maggie to join her and Imran on a radio show project group.  I accepted immediately because I was familiar with their work and had admired it and commented on it previously. Jessica and Lauren joined the group later that evening, and Alison joined on Sept. 17, rounding our group out to six.

Sept. 18 – I blogged about my idea for a radio show that was a mash-up of cartoons like “The Simpsons”, “The Fa...

1 Comment on Chicken in the Joint

This is my commercial spot for Kentucky Fried Chicken in our radio show project “Wire Buyers”, featuring product placement in “The Wire”.   You’ll hear Homer Simpson, Peter Griffon, Jason Alexander in addition to Wee-Bey, Avon, and D’Angelo discussing KFC’s finest virtues.  I went for funny, with segues that follow the verbal queues such as “moist towelette” leading into “soggy and limp”...

6 Comments on Buckets Behind Bars

Here’s another bumpersticker for a commercial I’m doing for the radio show.  I’m working on a Kentucky Fried Chicken commercial, and I’ll want a graphic for the SoundCloud posting when I get it done, so I decided to go ahead and do it now to get me in a chickeny mood.  This is  for a fictitious program “Buckets Behind Bars” that I envision might’ve happened for Avon Barksdale who apparently lives pretty well in prison where the guards bring him KFC...

1 Comment on I Got Wired At…


I’ve created this for our radio project “Wired Buyers” where we focus on product placement.  One of the commercials I’m making is for Proposition Joe’s appliance shop.  Even though it’s really called “John’s Radio and Television” in the show, I took the liberty of changing it here. I included the fake URL because the character’s famous line is “I’ve got a proposition for you…”.

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...
