So I decided to listen to the class radio shows and do the live tweet along Wednesday evening! Part of this was for personal reasons (our own radio show for the class was playing)!
The three radio shows I listened to were The MaNOIRpulators (our show), Dead Silence, and The Steadfast Sleuths. For each show, the one thing that stuck out to me was the ability to create depth within the shows through the sound effects. I thought the transitions in the shows were also very smooth and had a very realistic feel. In all three of the shows you felt like you were in the surrounding (or at least you could imagine everything).
Dead Silence was the one show I remember the best and I think that was due to the impact of the sound effects on the show and actually creating the atmosphere. I thought the way the group collaborated on everything made it flow smoothly and effortlessly. I really enjoyed the commercials that were used and the creativity behind them. Overall, I thought it was an awesome show and everyone who worked on it seemed to have done very well.
Here is one of my tweets from the SteadFast Sleuths tweet-along!

One of my tweets about one of the awesome commercials during Dead Silence!
And finally, a tweet from our own radio show which I listened to as well from the one and only Jim Groom #tootingourhorn
Love the use of sound effects in this show, it absolutely harkens back to the shows we listened to earlier this semester #ds106radio

I loved listening to the radio shows from other groups, not only was it entertaining but it was nice to see how the other groups collaborated together and to actually experience their final products! Everyone’s shows turned out fantastically!
