When I think of the radio I think Comic Strip

Ira Glass is back in action and the main character in Radio, a comic strip rendition of Glass’ point of view when it comes to storytelling and radio success. While the graphics and comic strip style are entertaining and refreshing, they were a little overplayed and often had no meaning behind them. There was also a lot of filler information, or so it seemed. Reading Radio was a very easy task, due to the short length and the way it… (more…)

Nothin on But the Radio

I have to say I disagree with the class that they disliked the way RADIO was presented. The comics themselves made it so much easier to follow and add flavor to the animations. It is more like following a person … Read the rest of this entry

“6:29 Friday 4/9, 31 minutes to air”

I actually watched the four-part series before reading RADIO, so I thought RADIO has a slow start, because it was just repeating everything I had just heard. However, once it started getting to the parts about the tape, making it, community involvement, and having it go public, the reading picked up. It seems so stressful, […]

Maybe You Should Hang Up Your Mic Talkshow Host…

I read through a couple of pages of this book called RADIO: an Illustrated Guide. Honestly, I was pretty turned off by this reading. The panels were too cluttered with speech bubbles. There was no clear transition from panel to panel. I felt the artist was being too artsy and it felt like the graphic […]

RADIO

I thought that the Radio book was a pretty interesting read. I found the information which it was able to provide about their process for storytelling, from first finding the stories and weeding out the ones that are great that they want to tell, to creating the final product of that story. As someone who […]

Story Time with Mr. Glass

After reading Radio: An Illustrated Guide, and listening to these chats, I feel like I learned a staggering amount about audio presentation. The biggest thing that stood out to me in both the reading and the viewing was his manner … Continue reading

Modern Day Story Time.

This week we were asked to watch a series of series of videos with Ira Glass, the host of This American Life, speaking about the makings of a great story. I honestly found the videos great to watch simply because the way Ira speaks draws you in no matter what he’s talking about. Throughout all […]

Radio reading

After reading Radio: an Illustrated Guide, I was a little disappointed. I thought the information presented was a little choppy and I did not quite understand the comics. I know visuals normally make reading more interesting but I found it rather distracting. I was hoping the comics would present the information in a funny and […]

radio reading

response to reading: Radio: An Illustrated Guide I’m not a fan of comics.  Looking past that fact, using a graphic novel to introduce the art of radio is definitely an interesting idea.  Even so, I was not fond of this medium/presentation.  All of the little anecdotes were mildly interesting, but not interesting enough. It seemed […]

Radio Reading

I thought RADIO: An Illustrated Guide served as a great introduction to a better understanding of storytelling architecture within a radio media medium.  I would probably say this format of media that may be deemed as old-fashioned by today’s standards still illustrates the most important fundamentals of storytelling.  Why?  I think because radio unlike any other means […]

Radio Reading

We were asked to read “Radio an Illustrated Guide“. I’m going to start with the bad here: I did not like that it was in ‘graphic novel’ form at all. I’m not a big graphic novel reader but I’m pretty sure the graphics are a huge part of those books (go figure). About halfway through […]

Radio, An Illustrated Guide

I thought the graphic novel was pretty entertaining.  I’m not a big reader myself or even a comicbook reader, but this one actually grabbed my attention.  I liked the way they used the comics to illustrate their points.  I thought the comic kept the topic interesting and lively, while adding suspense to the story itself &hellip Continue reading »

RADIO, an Illustrated Guide: Response

After reading, RADIO, an Illustrated Guide I’ve realized how challenging the road to Radio success actually is. I never knew it took so much work to make a Radio story. I can’t believe the interviewers only would use 20 minutes of tape for a really long interview. The whole process seemed really interesting. While your […]

Reflection on Radio

After reading the thirty pages of Radio my outlook on digital storytelling on the radio has a whole new aspect.   I will be honest when I first purchased this book in my mind I was thinking “seriously I am wasting my time reading a comic book.”  I first started skimming it thinking okay just need […]
