MY STORY TO TELL!!!!!!!!!

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.

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.
