Radio Bumper

Now that we have a #ds106 radio up and running creating a 15 to 30 second bumper for the station. What is a bumper? It is a short recording that identifies the radio station with signature music or an expression that makes sure the listeners know what they are tuned into (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bumper_(broadcasting)). So for ds106 it should certainly include “DS106 Radio” and some sort of message about the station with voice over music.

2.5 Stars!

For my last assignment I created a Radio Bumper that could potentially be used for our upcoming show. I used the song “Black Betty” and cut the lyrics. My phrase was “Thank you for listening to DS106 radio”. Its short but I think its to the point and to me I think to much is just confusing and sounds bad.

I used Audacity for the creation. This is the second time I made a bumper so the process was much smoother and took half of the time that the first one did.
