How I did it: The regular radio show I do is themed each week, so there's sort of a doconess there, but a little more research went into the Muslimgauze one, so it's almost a documentary. In the end most of what I said about him came from the wiki page, so that's kind of cheating. Near enough for now I think. Read how I did it… 4 years ago
i interviewed, edited and nearly complted one that an editor told me she wanted….
The software was a pain, and ancient and it took forever to do…
and contacting the editor to say i was done took 3 weeks…
and then another editor told me they didn’t even want it anymore.
Seriously, despite the bad experience w/ the editors….
It’s so frustrating dealing with the editing programs..
And you have to be meticulous in terms of wind ormicrophone noise… and even if they say something AMAZING but there’s noise,.... you can’t even use it.
Editing video is 1000 times easier.
I no longer have the desire to do this. NOT worth it.

id like to learn how to make audio documentaries 5 years ago
yay. production training starts this week. i get to be an official on-air person soon – after years of guesting on other ppls shows. will be doing more doco-style shows as we go along, starting with themes – breakcore, sound-art, noise, onkyo, labels (Extreme, Volition, Creel Pone) – but this week, female electronic artists. There’s a fair bit of work that separates a themed show from an actual doco.. 5 years ago
So I’ve found everyone I need,and they’re all going to talk. I emailed the producer at the program I want to do it for…a week ago. She hasnt’ even opened it yet (we have an email feature at work that tells you whether they have or not). Not only that, I called her twice and she’s always “too busy.”
This is time sensitive!!
If you dont’ like it, just say so. Don’t string me along. 5 years ago
I’ve decided on a topic!! I’m waiting for the interviewees to email me back!!! 5 years ago
I’ve started researching a topic I think that will work out. I’m waiting for a source to call me back to get the ball rolling! 5 years ago
I boxed to a national level when i was a teenager. i started partying, smoking, drinking, drugging.. and threw it all away. After a decade and a half of struggling to get my life back on track. I want to do a radio documentary of myself at 31, getting back into the ring, and getting back in fighting shape. the Doc ends when I finally get back into the ring and compete win or lose (the result of the match doesn’t matter). 5 years ago
1. The equipment is relatively inexpensive and easy to use.
2. A microphone is less intrusive than a video camera. People can be more natural, more themselves.
3. Radio is intimate. When you hear someone’s voice on the radio, it feels as if they’re talking directly to you. It’s like getting a phone call from a friend.
4. The limitation of radio is actually its greatest strength: there are no pictures. Radio forces you to be creative and pay attention to words, sound and language. Radio requires you to be not just a journalist, but a poet and a good storyteller.
5. Remember that many people listen to the radio in their cars. That’s why radio should never be boring, or people will fall asleep. Good radio saves lives.

Radio documentary could be more fascinating that any tv stuff. Sounds and voices are so powerful. But how to begin? 7 years ago
Two out of four episodes are finished. It took all day, but I think it’s worth it. More info in Norwegian:
Dette dreier seg altså om oppfølgeren til “norsk rocks historie” som har blitt sendt relativt ofte i reprise på “Marte”. Dokumentarserien heter “De fire store: En rockedokumentar i fire deler”. De fire store er selvfølgelig Dizzie Tunes, Vazelina Bilopphøggers, Bjelleklang og Gitarkameratene. De to siste ble spilt inn på Marienlyst i dag.
Gitarkameratene ble meget bra, Bjelleklang er et litt mer kjedelig band, og resultatet ble deretter. Men det er “innafor”.
Følg med på “Reinsfelt og Rasmus” NRK P3 i august! 7 years ago
I’m going to do it this fall, after finishing a major project at work. It’s going to be a quadruology about the four biggest bands in Norway:
- Gitarkameratenes historie
- Dizzie Tunes’ historie
- Bjelleklags historie
- Vazelina bilopphøggers’ historie
It’s going to be great! 8 years ago
I’ve made some already, and have them aired on national radio. I have an idea about “Gitarkameratenes historie”. We’ll see… 8 years ago
Right now I want to produce something on the staging of my boyfriend’s musical or evangelical christians in Singapore – but the topic I want to focus on varies as I procrastinate. My only regret is that nobody is interested in radio these days (actually I’m only 30 – that comment makes me feel like a train enthusiast bemoaning the end of the steam age). I’ve listened to radio – particularly speech radio (as opposed to just “talk” or “news” radio) all my life and always thought that good radio content is more abundant and insightful than most of the good TV out there. Probably due to the fact that radio hasn’t been totally taken over by huge corporations… (though the BBC is one corporation whose output I approve of). Maybe I’ll do it and put it on the web. 8 years ago
