Are you going to vote grimmy???!
TODDLA T is going for it! What happened on new years eve with him and Charlie?!
Tune in from 7pm ON Wednesday!
1 WEEK TO GO AND PREPS ARE UNDER FULL SWING!
There is a lot to pull off in a week, but we have every confidence that we will!
Aled and Leanne have been so great at working with us to put our big ideas into reality- something that 4 creative but new-to-the-business kids forget to do sometimes!
Just out of a brain storm session. I have found that these work in a great way- one huge burst of super fast scribbling, everyone getting louder and more excited, ideas churning and churning and then………… crash. They are SO productive and so simple to do, and don’t take long cause you crash so quickly, your brain goes into overdrive!
We are splitting our show into 3 sections, 45mins, 30mins then 45mins. The middle is taken care off. Trust me!! What we have been working on today is filling the first and last sections. As our presenters are such wicked personalities and goes with out saying professionals, it would be very unnecessary for us to script for them- almost patronising to these legends! (If you didn’t catch our launch trail this morning, im talking about Grimmy, Toddla T and Charlie Sloth!!!)
So, what we are going to do instead is give them a prompt list with suggestions from: how to sabbotage their opponents shows and tamper the flawless musical rep of these selectors, to letting us into whats going to come up in their fight for the title!! We may even tip off a few plans of a few djs to the others… to throw ultimate fuel on the fire!
We are so excited, lock in 27/02/13 7-9pm and back your dj!!!
KAE: THE INTERN TAKEOVER, THE FUTURE OF RADIO. THE TRAIL
Now if you didn’t hear the trail go out this morning on the breakfast show at 7.45am here it is, a lot of work went into this and I was very proud with the outcome, we still had to re-do more of the voices to sound like normal people! lol!
Big thank you to Patrick who helped make the trail possible he edited it all and mixed it and it sounds amazing. The best trail that we could have hoped for aaaaaaaand it’s as amazing as the show will be.
Here’s myself and Patrick below when he was mixing it, listen in!!!!
I was in charge of getting a trail ready for this show of ours. I enlisted the help of Patrick, who creates all the trails for R1 and 1xtra.
Script writing then getting others to look over it and about 500 re-drafts later I had a script that worked and everyone agreed with! As the interns we all recorded our bits, there’s just a few people left to record there’s which I’ll chase up tomorrow ;).
Patrick will then have it ready for you guys to HOPEFULLY hear on Thursday. Yezzzzzzzzzir.
Tomorrow I’ll be working with the Review show so be ready for me on your airwaves YEAAAAAAAAH.
(OH the vlogging will still take place when i’m not as tired as I am now)
Have a wonderful evening.
*inserts picture of Kae with Patrick here*
Today is rather hectic! If you don’t know outside my work with the wonderful Beeb I’m a filmmaker and I have a film being screened at the BFI and I need to talk to a room full of hundreads of people about the craft!… That means me leaving in the middle of the day, it should be fine since I’m with the Visual department of Radio1/BBC 1xtra (The guys who make radio that bit better looking) so I’m hoping they understand :/
Anyway here is the first video I worked on with the Visual department!
What really happens during #Nickstape every Friday…
Last night was by far the most exciting night at Radio 1 for me, in that I got to be part of so many things that started my passion for dance music, the music industry and ultimately radio.
It’s hard to describe how much it meant to me but I’ll do my best!!
I have written music notes and formed schedules for other shows while i’ve been here, but last night I got to do so for two of my absolute heros- ANNIE MAC AND PETE TONG! As Aled could back up, I was a bit all over the place as I handed Annie my notes and said hey! And then the fun began…………..
I got to sit in/dance with them for 4 hours of the most eclectic, perfectly hand picked, quality dance music and over-all see how the masters of music do it! (Both with very different styles may I add!) (I did do some work too….collected the texts for shout outs!)
Both shows are produced by Becci Abbott who just seems to be a master of her trade. She knows the DJs she works with down to a T, from the styles they prefer, to how they like to start a feature. She is so good at what she does that although she is in charge of the smooth running of each last bit of the show- she’s also in love with the music, so has a wicked time dancing while she’s working! Becci is leaving to manage some big names in dance music soon…. she’s one of a so many inspiring people i’ve met whilst being here.
I imagined the nerves I felt handing the music notes to the DJs and the adrenaline that ran through the shows is exactly how the producer feels before, throughout and after as their show they’ve molded comes together flawlessly.
So, needless to say, last night was a huge reminder of why I’m here and just made me even more sure and determined to have a life long career in the music industry!
PS. Also met the boom DJ from the steel city….. toddlaaaaaaaa!
