|Theme for CKMS Community Connections ccc
|CKMS Community Connections
|Air Between Your Ears
|DJs Val Scheer and Rob Curwain introduce themselves and their shows; how they got their start into radio; the courses at Fanshawe College and Niagara College; discussing home production equipment and techniques, and comparing it to the college’s equipment; transferrable skills? With Covid, even commercial radio station show hosts are working from home;
|Sleight Of Hand
|The differences between commercial radio and Community Radio: So many shows! So much freedom! The mandate for Community Radio is to provide an alternative to commercial radio. But the skills are transferrable, working at CKMS helps hone the craft for a commercial radio career. Val and Rob both have “The Voice” of professional announcers — how did they get it? Mostly it comes from yourself, but in the broadcast course people will point out voice problems. Having “The Voice” isn’t needed on Community Radio, we’re more interested in what you have to say than in how you say it.
|Technical difficulties arose, so Rob and Val weren’t audible for the rest of the podcast. Instead, Bob introduces more music.
|I, The Mountain
|Bob gives the extro credits, and introduces The Drift
