I thought i would start up a thread as a place to upload new imaging content to keep in all in one place.
Anyways I put this together for your event on the 24th of Oct while i was faffing around with a few ideas for you. Maybe you could use it as an intro or as an advert. Whatever its a freebie lol :)

1558 Sounds good. The only thing i would say is that the backing track/fx shout be lower in volume than the voice. The voice always needs to be heard over everything else as this is the message you are delivering. Just a little fine tuning but a very good start.

I'll have another play I did turn the backing track down a little but probably not enough?

that any better??

It's 100% better and use able although personally i would raise the backing volume just a little. I Personally have a sweet spot i hear and that works for me, although not everyone will agree.
But practice makes perfect right ?
Anyways as you are keen to learn here is what i call my raw takes, When putting together an assignment i will record various takes of the same thing them cut, edit and produce them. This gives me a selection of takes i can cut and mix together at my will.

Have a go while i work on producing them for you.

I was faffing and came up with this. How do you like it ? I also added a raw file for you to play with. Enjoy

Thought you would like them :) No biggie you not being around matie, we all have stuff to do. It's called life lol. I get the self employed lifestyle it can be very time consuming but it's worth it in the end.
I am going to play around with the personal DJ cosmic Dave bits. can you tell me a little about the show you produce? Its theme style genre anything that will give me insight to give your :voiceover: a personal feel.

not actually started the show yet but some dj cosmic dave stuff would be good inc a follow cosmic dave on twitter @djcosmicdave and maybe in the mix with cosmic dave that sort of thing really.
the show will focus very much on the disco house side of things with some house and tribal house thrown in the mix. oh and there is the disco house top ten to work on as well, phew its going to be busy :\

Yes your going to be a busy chap but it will be worth it. Household radio is progressing very well, I do tune in from time to time.
Thanks for the info I had a feeling I was going down the right path with it. I will get to work on them shortly for you and upload them here.

I'm always a step ahead mate :) Pretty much had them laid down a week ago. Come close to public events like this its best pre-empt the demand. As long as your happy with them mate, I'm always happy to change them around or add bits for you if there not quite what your after.

No worries, when you get time (no rush) I would like something like, broadcasting to Europe and around the world we are household radio.
Most of my listeners seem to be European based so wanted that mention on the jingle for them/us. Cheers man..

Hey Dave,

I do have a few more I'm working on for you but wanted to run this one by you.. I was purely faffing about and produced this along with other takes I binned. This one I'm finding kinda catchy but I'm not hooked on it. What are your thoughts ??

Djd
10-30-2015, 09:00 AM

Djd

I'm will do it, I'm starting a website revamp want to get on top of that 1st. Is there any reason tune in won't except a station ? If there's not enough listeners for example.

There are a couple of reasons you may get rejected. I believe they have an issue if your using listentomyradio and 1 or 2 other freebie sites or your are not providing the correct infomation.

MarcAlle

TuneIn is a listing service and I've never seen them deny a station to be honest. I'm pretty sure you just fill out the info and it lists it.

Djd
11-02-2015, 03:50 PM

Thanks for all your help over the past few weeks n months Rob, got a couple of ideas for new jingles in the endless summer/ibiza type theme for you to have a go at when you get time i appreciate you've already done more than enough behind the scenes. As you know im trying to diversify the station sound just a little bit introducing a bit of tribal flavored house music into the mix, anyway here is the txt.

Bringing you the sounds of summer all year round, your tuned to household radio.

&

Household radio, bringing you the very best disco and tribal house 24/7. Turn on tune in and drop out.

feel free to have a play around with the wording your loads better at this sort of thing than me lol.
