Demo FeedbackFollow @mediaukdiscuss
Hi, I’ve put together some radio demos and was hoping for some feedback.
I have 3 demos; one entertainment / personality led, one focusing on specialist music and a third with a co-presenter.
They can be heard on my soundcloud here:
I’ve had a listen to the personality aircheck and thought i’d give you some feedback.
One good tip to always remember is that when you’re presenting as part of a team (i.e. yourself and a co presenter) is to engage with the listener still. When you’re presenting solo, it’s a lot easier but when there’s two of you, always remember the listener is the key person that needs to follow what you’re saying and doesn’t just want to listen to two mates ‘having a lark around on the radio and we’re evesdropping in on the conversation’.
On another link you say ‘I’ve got the music loud in the studio, if you’re living above us…’. The listener isn’t interested in how loud the music is or if people are listening above you, it’s not relevant to them.
You did bring up some interesting topics of discussion. Always be mindful though, if you bring up a topic which you and others may see as funny – some people may find it offensive (there are people who will complain for the sake of complaining), so always be careful.
One final thing, listen to other people’s demos for inspiration – you can find some on radiotalent.co.uk.
I hope i’ve helped, and all the best for your future!
I also listened to your personality demo and i would have to agree with matt about being careful with what you found funny and what listeners think.
It always about connecting with that listener and of course. im not the most highly experience person or not really the best presenter but i feel that it easier to listen to other people’s demo’s then your own so you cant spot thing like that maybe sometimes.
However, you do have a great on air personality which you do use but just think about your links more of what your putting into them that all.
Thank you so much for your feedback, it definitely makes sense and I’ll take your comments on board and make some changes.
