If you have a cooking program, a local chef could be featured showing how to make a recipe, and the guest could also invite them to their restaurant to sample his demo. The chef could be a paid guest that uses your space as advertorial to drive traffic to their venue.
RADIO IDENTITY BRANDING
Sound effects play a crucial role in radio. Stations play these sounds repeatedly. When carefully selected, listeners associate them with the station frequently.
Sound effects reflect the radio station’s programming, target audience, and demographics. This process is radio imaging. It sets the mood, feel and tone of your station. With professional radio imaging, you can target specific demographics easily.
Listeners will also know what to expect when they tune in. They won’t even have to look at the dial to see if they have found your station.
Such sonic branding is crucial in today’s crowded airwaves. With so many radio stations struggling to take at your audience, you have to create an unmistakable identity, and this is what radio imaging helps you achieve.
Voice-overs: Voices used in commercials, narrations, radio shows, segues, jingles, among other productions. If you have a unique voice over artist for your station, it will help build your brand. Most radio stations retain voice-over artists for their in-house productions. Something Different can help you find the perfect idenity and voice for your station.
- Music beds: This is a production used in radio made up of the bottom layers of tracks consisting of bass, drums, and chord instruments like keyboards or guitars and other musical. For example we may make a weather bed to play when you give the forcast.
- Intros/outros: This is a tune that begins your program or signals the end. It is your show’s signature. Listeners will associate the show with the sound effect and also the radio station.
- Stingers: When a radio announcer says something with emphasis, they can use stingers. These can be pre-recorded words, short sound effects, or quick pieces of music from 1 to 3 seconds in length.
- Sweepers: radio sweeps play in between a song to give listeners crucial information or make a brief station promo or identifier. They play for 20 seconds or less. Something Different can help create these for you.
- Radio liners: A quick introduction to the radio station. For example, “You’re listening to…98.1 KMBZ”
- Drones: A Prolonged sound effect used by a show presenter to build up anticipation and tension before dropping a vital piece of information.
