THE ASIAN RADIO SHOW invites all New Zealanders to contribute 2-3 minute stories for the 2010 season running between 6th February and 12th June.
In the spirit of audience participation, interactivity and capacity building, THE ASIAN RADIO SHOW would like all New Zealanders, living in New Zealand and overseas, to send in stories worthy of broadcast on radio.
THE ASIAN RADIO SHOW is the first of its kind, a magazine style show about an Asian perspective of all things New Zealand; a show full of attitude, humour and irreverence, to play on commercial airwaves. Funded by New Zealand On Air, TARS is broadcast every Saturday evening at 7.40pm, just after Pop Goes the Weasel, on RadioLive (100.6FM). It started in August 2008. All the shows are available on-line www.holycowmedia.com/the-asian-radio-show.
For 2010, THE ASIAN RADIO SHOW offers a platform for all New Zealanders to tell stories via the show. You could be a journalism or media student, you could be mashing sound on GarageBand, you could be a homemaker, an accountant, anybody or nobody. You could be of Asian origin and if not then you could want to tell something ‘Asian’ related. It could be quirky, experimental or serious. It could be a love story, an anecdote or a comment on politics. Travel stories are welcome too. As is drama.
• Recordings should preferably be in .wav format.
• The story shall be edited by the crew on the show unless sent broadcast ready.
• Sound can be delivered through a web based drop box.
• Final date for delivery 16th April 2010.
Five of the best stories will be broadcast on the show between May and June 2010. All contributions shall be edited and archived on the Holy Cow Media website.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to run ideas, technical, script, editing, delivery, copyright and any other queries. Please do not send in blind entries.
Meanwhile you can follow us on Twitter @asianradioshow.
If you record on your phone or any other mini device then make sure the recording is clear and clean because it will be in mp3 format which is not very good quality for broadcast on radio. Please do contact us before you start.
