Hudson Thompson – Dub & Disappointment

This week was somewhat of a let down when it came to Friday. Earlier this week, I was told that I would get to do some voice-tracking for an upcoming commercial (AKA I’m going to be on the radio immortalized in a commercial)! But, of course, something comes up with work and I have to go to work instead of getting to make the commercial. So, hopefully, I will get my chance to do that on the next commercial that requires extra voices!


Voice-tracking… You will be mine.

On Tuesday and Thursday, I was put to the testt when station manager, Steve Wheeler, asked me to dub in a commercial.  I would have been able to do it flawlessly IF I knew the email password (which I now know how to enter the email I needed) to access the pre-made commercials. In the past, when I dubbed in commercials and beds they were already where I needed them and I did not have to hunt for them. However, next time I will be ready for sure!  I dubbed in some more commercials Thursday, and Tuesday I assisted Dr. Dave with his show. I am getting great at making bad jokes (his show is filled with funny stories and ridiculous jokes). There is never a dull moment!

It is week six here at The Bull in West Point. This week was actually fairly slow, I am definitely getting better on being live on the mic (I was there early in the morning again this week on Tuesday and Thursday to be with Smoot on his morning show), more relaxed, but also still having to be wary of what I say. It is interesting to me all the things that you are apparently not supposed to say on the radio, but are still said on the radio …it makes for interesting conversations, to say the least! Today, I assisted both Gator and Dr. Dave with making commercials.

I am getting pretty slick with commercials, I am thinking after next week I will be able to make them on my own.  Steve Wheeler, station manager, wants me to finish converting music for the sister AM station before I get on making my own commercials. I am very close to being done with the bulk of the converting, and I am thinking after  some point next week (Tuesday or Thursday) I will be done with them for sure! So, I am excited to see what the next few weeks have in store for me, because making commercials is so much fun! I have found the production aspect of radio is what I have really enjoyed of late, and maybe later in life I can get into that portion of radio, or something related. We shall see!!
