Ok so i’ve been sat on the sofa watching E4 since i got back and watching the big bang theory now.
I’m having a think about some uni work about what i want to do, so i thought i’d write them on here and maybe remember them for the actual assignment.
The task is to make a radio station, its branding and how it would work. How it would get, and keep an audience and what audience that would be. So far i have 2 ideas.
The Secret Idea – I was advised to keep this idea secret from blogs as it was a pretty good idea and shud never mention it unless im going to do it.
The second idea is “loveyourradio” – an internet/dab station cross music download website. There would be a new music chart (new and unsigned bands) and a regular chart show based on the downloads from the website, but would focus on personality radio. The downloads would provide as an income for the station, and unsigned artists can price their downloads at whatever they wanted, with the station charging 7p each download minimum, and anything over that is charged to the artist. Possibility of maybe having a subscriber service so theres no adverts. The station would be funded by the subscriptions of a few pounds a month and the service would actually be entertaining. – Thats as far as i got.

Radio Genres and Cultures: Write an essay thing.
We had to previously talk about our listening history in the past. The essay needs to be 3000 words on the genre of radio of our choice. Mine is Radio Comedy (The Lesson will be tomorrow). My comeedy inspirations come from TV. I grew up watching lots of old TV from the 70s and 80s, and mainly the people presenting these shows had all the excitement they had transfurred from their radio show. For instance Kenny Everett used to be on UK gold and paramount, The goodies and monty python used skills they got from the radio from I’m sorry i’ll say that again, and st I used to stay up late and watch the 60s and 70s top of the pops on UK Gold, and the rest of it was watching MTV europe and listening to my dads records (Thats the short version). Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy, And when i got to about 18 and listened to radio more and old internet things, i realised how fun and exciting old radio used to sound and that the only people who were still doing that kind of radio were Scott Mills and Chris Moyles. I need to think about this one more.

Anyway in other things, not much happened today. Did a tiny bit of work. Earned myself £16. Might pop over to swindon over the weekend. My housemate keeps asking me to do dog impressions, im not sure why but it reminds me of when i was in school and everyone asking me to do car sounds.
Time for bed. Laters yooo
