After one quarter of DJ training, another quarter as a Music for the Masses DJ, a DJ at 89.3 KUGS FM Bellingham (Western's radio station) can apply for a specialty show.
I submitted a proposal for the "Tunnel of Love" a love-themed show. I asked my friend, Isa, if she'd cohost with me because she previously had a unique specialty show — "Nautical Nonsense."
Each week, we'd prepare a setlist around a specific type of love, or love-related theme.
A few of the themes and some of the songs that accompanied them:
Both my cohost and I are journalism majors; Isa studies in visual journalism and I study
My professors have stressed the importance of twitter and social media fluency. As someone who doesn't use social media, I decided to get accustomed to twitter and instagram and practice my public relations skills by creating accounts for the show.
I promoted the show by posting each week's theme with silly art.
TL;DR: On-air Online
