Alright scrubs, so I have an epic announcement. I am stealing Bethesda's idea for a post-apoc radio station and making one of my own.

It's called Wasteland Radio and it's just an hour-long broadcast through ubroadcast.com. It'll air Sunday at 8pm eastern/standard time. Allow me to explain the premise and then you can pummel me with ridicule. I am the DJ, Charlie C., the weatherman/ghoul, Bill. I am creating the commercials, and will play most any other character that Charlie the DJ interviews.

The music will of course be Fallouty type music, Vera Lynn, Shirley Temple, Inkspots, Fats Waller, and other shit. The premise is that this is a radio show that broadcasts from a bunker in Amarillo, Texas. It sounds odd but if you're not doing anything for about an hour at eight this Sunday, then go to ubroadcast.com, download the player, go to Stations- Independent Music Broadcasters- Oldies/Decades- Wasteland Radio, at the specified time of course.

I would really appreciate feedback. It will be a pre-recorded show as it's almost impossible to be a postapocalyptic DJ without having to make alot of shit up and therefore screw alot of shit up the first time around.

Please tune in and tell me what needs improvement. I haven't decided whether realism or entertainment is the priority. My goal is to eventually make something that will allow the listener to turn off the lights and just imagine that they are picking up this station from their own bunker somewhere and just getting lost in the Fallout world.

I'll have commercials for Nuka-Cola, Iguana-on-a-Stick, The Ripper, etc...

This first one may be a bit rough as I'm getting used to the audio editing, just a warning.

This is the host, Charlie C.-


So repair your radio and tune in to Wasteland Radio, the only station for the all the greatest pre-apocalyptic hits!

I hope to hear from at least Caszim... don't let me down buddy!

I'm up for except for the part about tuning in at a specific time because I will most likely forget. Why don't you just record it then put it up on site so that we can download and listen to at our own leisure.

I have to say though that I like fallout, but I don't know if I want to be listening to old timer music for an hour :hiptobesquare:

Yeah, I'm out in Jersey. So 5pm for you. I think I can get a chat going among listeners so I'll try doing that. Also there will be a download if you miss it. Thanks guys in advance. I'll post reminders as it gets closer.

ALright... I'm not ready tonight. Sorry guys, I know you were all very excited but I just haven't had time to record. Lo siento. The commercials are done but still have to do all the interviews/chat sessions...

please try to disguise any accent that might show through too heavily. My close window button is very sensitive to accents.

Well I'll do my best radio host voice. My accent is mostly northern jersey unfortunately, but still with a ghostly remnance of midwest (where I was born). icon_drunk

I can also do australian, wealthy english, peasant english, stereotypical indian, stereotypical native american, stereotypical southerner, and a whole army of random character voices. I can do 20's gangster, a bit of pirate, italian mobster, very limited irish, Igor (Dr. Frankenstein's assistant), etc....
I can't really do any celebrity voices now that I think of it. Australian is by far my most comfortable accent to use. I could go on forever as an australian. An authentic Australian could most probably spot me as a fake, but I've fooled many an American.

if anyone needs voicework done, you come to me. icon_drunk

oh and I can sing pretty well too, so if any of you ever do an animated musical about talking dogs, I'm your man.

sucks

btw my Iguana-on-a-stick commercial is pretty hilarious, so don't miss this shit. It's definitely going down this sunday at eight pm. There's also some amateur poetry from old Jenkins, so can't miss that either.

There's also an interesting interview with Patrick the Celt, who actually sounds like a Norwegian Canadian from England. Patrick recently returned from the East Coast so Charlie'll be grilling him about his trip.
