Beginning in my freshman year, one of my friends and I decided to have a radio show on Radio DePaul. The process of getting a show was very easy. We simply contacted Radio DePaul and presented them with an idea for our show. We were then each trained and taught how to work everything in the studio. We got to learn how each piece of equipment works, and what it was for. For our show, we wanted it to be about movies. Our show is now called Sounds of Cinema, and we have a different theme each week. My favorite theme we have had and will have again in just a few weeks is Halloween. This is my favorite because we get to play songs from the soundtracks of our favorite Halloween movies.
Today, we started a new trend of themes: Astrology. Our playlist today consisted of songs from movies with famous Libras. For example, we had Hugh Jackman for The Greatest Showman, Will Smith from Men in Black, and Josh Hutcherson with a song from Bridge to Terabithia.
Radio DePaul has received many awards for being the best college radio station. I feel so lucky to have this unique experience, and get to combine my love of movies and music! I love getting text messages from my friends and family, who are able to listen to the show from across the country by simply going to the Radio DePaul website. My parents listen every week, and love being able to hear my voice even though I am hundreds of miles away from them.
If you would like to listen to the show next week, tune in at 6-7PM on Sunday!
