Radio prepping is one thing that radio DJs, should not left out. Whether you are a pro or a rookie, there is nothing more horrible than being in a situation where you don’t know what to say in front of the microphone.
Prepping is more than just getting something soyou can say something.
You need to consider that your content should be fresh, relevant, entertaining, funny and relatable. The way you present the content should also be right. Make it long and you bore your listeners.
The key to getting an exciting radio prep whether you are doing a morning show, afternoon drive or evening prime time, is mix it with live interaction with listeners and use audio clips to accentuate your content.
Also, it is great to pair your radio prep with online content, so you are also leading your listeners to your website, like announcing today’s most viewed viral video.
In Hollywood, the quality of a movie is mostly referred to as the “production value.”
Basically, those films with bigger budgets tend to have higher production value because huge amount of money is being put on resources like the setting and special effects.
Why Production Value?
It is the aim of a film maker (depending on the genre though) to make the movie appear epic, attractive, realistic, relevant, stylish and expensive looking. This is what makes movie goers “go” to see a movie.
A James Bond movie is an example of a high production value flick, not just because of the protagonist’s cool gadgets, but also because of its expensive cars and its remote and exotic locations.
If you want to be on the radio, stop learning radio in school. This was the advice of Carlo Jose, Production Manager at the famous Magic 89.9, DWTM FM of Quest Broadcasting Inc. during last month’s Kidlat Awards 2011.
I remember when I just 16, a budding DJ wannabe, who would do anything just to be heard on the radio. I did not know what was in radio, that I got hooked to it, sure it was about getting the hippest music and getting it first, the popularity and the chicks, but I did not realize that until I got IN radio.
Before my radio days, I was just a listener. I did not enjoy all the perks until my first boardwork.
