For this assignment, I made a radio commercial for my ds106 radio show group. We are recreating an old radio drama script from the Roy Roger’s Show, and we thought it would be fitting to make a commercial for one of the Roy Roger’s show’s actual sponsors. So, I looked up who the show’s sponsors were when it was being created, and found that Goodyear was one of them.
I look on Goodyear’s website for a slogan that I could use for the commercial.
“Change your tires, not your plans”https://www.goodyear.com/
The assignment I used was “Make Your Own Radio Commercial!“
To create the commercial, I used Audacity. I’m still learning how to use it, but it’s pretty straightforward! I looked for music on ccMixter, and chose a song called Countryside Summer Joyride by Kara Square ((c) copyright 2017 Licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution Noncommercial (3.0) license.)
Then, I uploaded the sound to audacity, recorded the slogan, and edited it all together!
