I dipped my toe in to live broadcasting on Harrogate Community Radio. We were a show short, so we created the slot “Crap, We’re A Show Short!” I think I nailed it - well, there was only one fluffed link.
If you want to listen back to the show click below - be my guest…
It was the first time I had sat down to record a show in one sitting - most of the time, I normally record my links and then chop them up, fitting them around the music.
The app of choice was Mixxx. It worked well. I am trying to encourage other hosts to use Mixxx, in my role as an admin of the station.
I have made a short video walking people how to broadcast using Mixxx.
The tool I used to make the video is called Loom - it is proving very handy for the station and for work.
Looking forward to two days time when I turn 41. I have never been so old. I will try and write up a blog article for the day - but there is plenty in the pipeline and I am loving being in my 40s. I am unsure whether is is apathy descending and I am settling in to middle age - pleased with anything - or if my life is starting to take a turn for the better; but I am happy.
