In the back end of the ds106radio management system, you can see how many people are listening online, typically zero, and where they are located:
One day Nigel was broadcasting from the South Pacific and had gathered a good audience. Jim picked up the stream after Nigel was done, and expressed concern that the South Pacific had dropped off the listener map. This inspired the slogan “ds106radio – the only station that takes attendance.” We don’t actually know who’s listening, but we can take educated guesses based on where they are on the map.
I made this bumper with Audacity. I recorded my vocal, then went looking for some bumper sound effects. I found The Cinematic Transitions by Valentina Gribanova for an intro & outro. I also wanted to add a punching the time clock noise. Freesound didn’t help, but I found Punch In Time Clock Card at Work Sound Effect FX FREE through google. It came out so-so. Maybe I should have had a sound bed under my voice. I don’t know if the time clock sound is recognizable on its own. I could have used the time clock scene from Breaking Away, perhaps obscure but kinda funny
I just realized that kid is Rorschach. Small world. “Bueller” probably would have worked better as a metaphor for attendance though.
