The radio show was undeniably a mixed bag. I had a ton of fun with what I was able to make, but I am definitely disappointed that I couldn’t work with my original group and get to hear my show aired. I don’t want to delve in too far, but I quickly became frustrated in communicating with my original group and assumed that no one was working on anything considering the lack of responses. I assembled my ideas in the meantime and only much, much later after one of our team finally returned to our original place of communication, the Google Doc, did I hear that the group had fallen apart and two members had already completed their own piece. I was a bit annoyed that I was labelled as a group abandoner, but what can you do. There was only one gmail message (which I never told anyone I check) about meeting times, so that was that.
I loved listening to everyone else’s shows, however. I was only able to tune in on two airing nights, but I did listen to a bunch of them on Soundcloud, and I was honestly blown away here and there and definitely jealous how well some of these groups clicked. Great use of characters, music and sound effects. Some of the narratives that were built up were wild. I listened to the Clue movie-inspired group and loved how suspenseful and ambitious it was with its plot and extensive character list. The one suggestion made after the show, to say the names of the characters a bit more often, definitely would have made it a bit clearer. I went through and listened again later and found it way easier to comprehend on the second run thru.
I would have loved to hear what people thought about my insane show. Each time I re-listen to it I either shake my head in my hands and wonder if I need medical help or die laughing. Especially my Hitler wine commercial. That’s just so out of left field. I mean, what? I think people would have gotten a kick out of the Miley Cyrus story, but I guess that’s for another time. My radio host, and now infamous voice-style, Todd Sprinkle will have to wait a bit longer before unleashing his awesomeness onto the world. In the meantime, Jack Neff will be out on the streets after his day job at the grocery, ever looking for the next juicy story.
