Radio Show Update

By | November 14, 2011

Editing for the show is well on its way! Editing ums, ahhs out of interviews as well as the various sound effects and music clips is actually taking longer than planned. As I’m trying something different with this show there is quite a lot of planning on how and where parts of all the interviews will interact and… Read More »

Next Brew: English Bitter

By | November 14, 2011

With the last drops of my Anzac Ale poured a few days ago it’s almost time to brew again, this time I am designing and brewing an English Bitter.

By | November 10, 2011

I just finished up tonight doing another interview for my final assessment. The last two interviews I have tried a different approach and had more of an informal chat/discussion rather than a question/answer type interview.

Thoughts of first radio interview process

With the first assignment for my radio subject now complete I thought I would write up some of my findings.

Most likely my questions were not focused directly on what I should have been… Read More »

Fizzy Water!

Here is a (very) quick label I did up for my ‘fizzy water’ tap on the keezer. I previously had cola on tap but this way we can mix it with any cordial or juice base we want at the time.

Radio editing

By | October 10, 2011

I decided on Adobe Audition in the end for editing of my radio interview. I already had it as it came part of the CS 5.5 Master Suite and after doing some quick tutorials on it, it’s extremely powerful and has some really handy features. I’m into my edit for the 5 min interview and have found a… Read More »
