Years later, I am still very grateful for the time I spent working at my college radio station, KRUI 89.7 FM at the University of Iowa. I first got involved by participating in a contest based off of the Survivor show, and, while I didn’t win, the on air staffers all loved me and encouraged me to join the station.
In addition to finding myself on the air, I also had a great deal of fun creating the produced spots that go in between songs and at the hour break. I loved learning to use the audio mixing software, and creating entertaining spots was a great creative outlet for me.
Here are my favorites pieces that I produced:
|This was definitely my favorite of the pieces that I produced at KRUI.
It was recognized by my peers at the station as the best “stinger” of the 2002-2003 school year.
|A friend and I worked together to create the “Monday Morning Maxi Pad”, what we called a feminist morning show. I produced this piece to promote our annual Anti-Valentine’s Day Special, a celebration to recognize the many reasons that people don’t always like Valentine’s Day.|
|Another spot for the Maxi Pad, this piece promoted our “Girl Power Hour”, the middle hour of our show where we only played songs by female fronted bands.|
|This station-wide promo spot used clips from the film, “O Brother, Where Art Thou?”.|
