Title: Selecting winner for Massacre Theatre doesn't feel "Live". Suggestion...
Post by: meli on May 30, 2018, 04:51:28 PM
Every time you read the name of the Massacre Theater winner, it never feels like you are picking the name at that moment.  It always sounds like you've previously picked the winner and are now just reading the name.  I think it will make for more exciting radio if you make the moment "bigger".  Here is a short clip from "WKRP in Cincinnati" how you may want to try it.  The link should take you to 12:15 into the Youtube video.

There was a time when we had a few hundred listeners and like 7 Massacre Theatre entries and so literally picked them out of a hat. Ah, the good old days.
