Chapter 5


When I first fell in love with media studies(film,tv) it was my
love for writing that drew me to the profession. I
wanted to weave words together in such a way
that they would paint a beautiful image that
would remain vivid in the imagination of the
reader. I still dream of that and in fact, I still dream of writing
novels about real people and
real stories that are yet to be explored. My second love is the radio.
To quote Beyoncé
yet again (with my own arrangement of her
lyrics): “I fell in love with my stereo and it never
let me down”. It was back at those days when I fell
for that seat behind a microphone and the
intimate interaction between me and the listener. This was however, in
the commercial music radio
form and it wasn’t until I studied film,and tv that I
really started to engage with talk radio. It’s funny,
when I did my short stint at VoW FM (Voice of
Wits), one of the critisms I received often, was
that my audio was a little “too serious” for day time campus radio. I
think I had developed a
knack for telling the stories about the real issues
that affected me and my surroundings. I wanted
to get people thinking. Of course while I was studying my honours I got
too busy and I had to give up on VoW and at the
same time, I got sidetracked by the glitz and
glamour of television. Don’t get me wrong I still
want to sharpen my video editing skills and
video production but something drew me to audio again this year when
we had to choose our
main streams. Today we had our first class of boot camp audio
class. We listened to some amazing audio clips
from NPR – A public radio station which is well
known for its great long form radio features and
storytelling. This form is something we do not
have in SA which, I found to be so beautifully done. I fell in love
with the radio all over again.

missmary: This story sucked me in from the start and kept me reading when I should have been in bed. My only disappointment is how it ended. While I have nothing against Sherlock/John pairings- and this was well done- I kind've hoped it would come out a little different just for a change. Still, this was w...

Maryam Rehman: The story was overall amazingly penned down. I loved how the story transitioned from the lavish city of London to the war torn Aleppo. Even though the story had some loopholes in some places, it made me contemplate failing in chemistry, because I was up all night glued to my mobile screen rather ...

Caitlin E. Jones: Really intrigued by this idea alone. The characters in the first story were really well written, and learning more about their world is just exciting! Thus far, everything seems very sound for a sequel; not only have you added to the cast and conflict, but deepened everyone's lives. I'm already g...

CornflowerBlues: I'm liking everything about this story so far: the brazen detective, the way he gave in to temptation, the temptation (<3!!), and the unexpectedly complex backdrop of his job and the case he's working. The story is well written, and despite its erotica tag, has an intriguing detective story and a...

Caitlin E. Jones: This is actually my second time reading through "Black Dog", and it never ceases to impress! The wealth of research and beautiful description alone are worth a read, never mind the really gripping drama that plays out between the characters. The world-building feels organic, the plot has just rig...

Atractivo Sumit: The story is an amazing blend of what we call natural, plain romance along with subtle emotions and interesting twists. The plot is so beautifully interwoven.

Ali Albazaz: I started reading "Caged" few hours ago and I'm on chapter 7 now. Caged is definitely one of the most addictive stories I've ever read. Thank you so much for writing this novel.

Jacquie Walker: This is one of the best books I have had the pleasure to read. Claudio has created a very "real" world brought alive as his words paint a rich tapestry of the lives of his characters and the world they live in as they journey toward their destiny.I recommend this to all who love this genre.... it...
