Students from Headstart School at 91.5 FM studio

 91.5FM Phuket FM Radio had some special guests in last Friday! Brendon, an 11 year old boy and Nyke, a 9 year old girl both came from Headstart International School to the station to lend their voices for an advert for Funstart. Funstart is a leisure center in Kathu that provides children and their families with a range of activities to do. They were given a script so that we could record their voices to use in the advert. The kid’s did a great job and can now proudly say that they have made their first radio debut.

I am interested in learning as much as I can about everything that goes on in a radio station, whether it be the technical side of things or in this case advert production so I sat in during the recording to learn what I could. To anyone out there that thinks that making a 30 second or so advert is easy, then think again! Getting the tone of voice right for the type of advert you’re doing is never an easy job and then there is all the editing that goes into the advert, such as choosing the right background music. Seeing the finished product and then comparing it to the rough product at the beginning that had no music or editing makes you appreciate how much work goes into a good advert. It’s all worth it in the end when you have a fantastic advert that you can play on the radio again and again. Hopefully I’ll get to make a radio advert sometime in the future or be involved with its production.

I hope you’ve all had a great weekend and are ready to start the week positive and fresh.
