Cool Choices – David Ralston – 17th October

20 October 2014

IMG_0942[1] IMG_0971[1]This week down at Cool FM HQ I worked with Carl Kinsman the commercial producer for Cool FM and Downtown. He showed how he prepares jingles, records and edits his own voice and how for competitions he produces and creates the ad’s that go on air.
On Wednesday whilst working Sonya Mac we had our individual roles for our show and discussed and researched what agencies we should contact regarding our show which will be covering “Bereavement, Finance, Relationships and Depression.”
I attended an event called “Output” held at The Mac Belfast by “GeneratorNI” on Thursday. Attending the event were different agencies and people from different organisations and individuals from the music industry from Ireland north and south. We interviewed BBC Radio 6 DJ Tom Robinson and local singer Janet Devlin from the X Factor who is now venturing into her solo career and building on her upcoming tour.
On closing we worked Jordan Moates the news reporter for Cool FM and Downtown and were discussing Road Safety and the amount of deaths that have occured in Northern Ireland this year which stands at 65. As a team we discussed a future radio advert regarding road awareness and what the best way of getting a clear cut effective message across would be.
On closing I want to say again how I have been enjoying the course and how am I looking forward to the broadcast and how we as a team will progress and make it sound the best it can be.
