THROUGH MY PAIR OF EARS – PART FIVE

A TAKEAWAY FOR THE ROAD: A RADIO AD AND FOUR JINGLES
AS A MEDIA ENTHUSIAST THIS WAS A DREAM COME TRUE. I HAVE ALWAYS WANTED TO KNOW HOW PEOPLE MAKE ADS, AND WHEN THE OPPORTUNITY KNOCKED AT MY DOOR, I HAD TO WALK RIGHT IN.
NOW I WON’T SAY THAT IT WAS EASY. BUT IT REALLY WAS A FUN EXPERIENCE WHICH I HOPE TO EXPLORE EVEN FURTHER IN THE FUTURE. WITHOUT ANY DELAY, PLEASE HAVE A LISTEN TO WYC RADIO‘S OWN BUILD IT CHRISTMAS AD AS WELL AS ALL THE FOUR JINGLES OF DIE KAAS SE STASIE. ENJOY. FROM MY WORLD TO YOURS, SPEAK TO YOU SOON.

THROUGH MY PAIR OF EARS – PART FOUR

A DECADENT DOUBLE DOSE OF RADIO DRAMAS

I AM FROM WESTBURY, A COMMUNITY RICH IN TALENT OF ALL KIND. ONE PARTICULAR TALENT I CAN BOAST ABOUT IS THE ABILITY TO ACT. NOT TO SELL DRUGS, NOT TO GET CAUGHT UP IN GANG VIOLENCE BUT TO ACT. YES MY FRIENDS, THERE’S MORE TO WESTBURY THAN WHAT IS PORTRAYED IN THE MAIN STREAM MEDIA.

NOW WHAT IS THE FIRST THING THAT COMES TO MIND WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT RADIO DRAMA? GREAT DIALOGUE, SOUND EFFECTS, SOUNDSCAPES, MUSIC AND REAL SURPRISING STORYLINES.

LAST YEAR I WAS PART OF A DRAMA GROUP AT THE WESTBURY YOUTH CENTRE. WE WROTE A SERIES OF RADIO DRAMAS AIMED AT BRINGING AWARENESS ON THE EFFECTS OF DRUG ABUSE AND OTHER REAL LIFE SITAUTIONS WE OFTEN FIND IN OUR COMMUNITY. THESE RADIO DRAMAS WERE PLAYED ON TWO LOCAL RADIO STATIONS, ELDOS FM AND KOFIFI FM. I AM PROUD TO PRESENT THEM TO YOU. HAVE A GOOD LISTEN AND AN EVEN BETTER DAY. EACH EPISODE IS LESS THAN FIVE MINUTES. FROM MY WORLD TO YOURS, MOI MOI.

IMAGINE THIS. YOU’RE SEATED AT YOUR FAVOURITE RESTAURANT AND YOUR MAIN MEAL ARRIVES. NOW IMAGINE FURTHER. WITH REGARDS FROM THE CHEF, YOUR MAIN MEAL CONSISTS OF TWO REPORTAGES JUST WAITING FOR YOU TO DIG IN.
THE FIRST REPORTAGE “MY SON IS MY LITTLE SOLDIER” TAKES YOU ON A GIVING BIRTH JOURNEY FROM FINDING OUT THAT YOU’RE PREGNANT TO WELCOMING YOUR BUNDLE OF JOY. THE SECOND REPORTAGE “VERA THE GOLDEN HIGHWAY GHOST” TAKES YOU ON A GHOSTBUSTING TRIP. BE VERY SCARED, DIT IS IN AFRIKAANS. VAN MY WERELD NA JOU WERELD, TOTSIENS.
