Instrumental Invasion, 4/22/20; Show banner April 23, 2020

Posted by Mike C. in Airchecks, Audio, Jazz, Media, Music, Personal, Radio.

The April 22, 2020, Instrumental Invasion show was the fourth to be mixed in Adobe Audition 2020. The talk breaks were recorded March 25, but I had to pad a few out during the mix on the 28th. David Benoit coincidentally hosting a show on another 88.1 FM – KKJZ-FM – had to be acknowledged. I was listening to it while writing the first draft on April 1.

I made the playlist on March 23 and annotated it the next day. I made additional annotations while mixing and re-recording.

After recording this show, Dan Cox, WCWP Director of Broadcasting, informed me that my show would be airing weekly starting the following week. He suggested I should also record a promo:

The excerpts I included in that promo were inspired by what I had played:

For the second week in a row, the show aired flawlessly. Click here to download the aircheck MP3 or listen below:

Four days earlier, on April 18, WCWP‘s social media handler, Kim Brander (a.k.a. The Original DGunboats) suggested I make a logo or banner for Instrumental Invasion. After 45 minutes in Adobe Photoshop CS2, I came up with this:

The keys are from my Yamaha YPG-625 located in the basement, which I photographed with my iPhone 11. The WCWP logo is from the icon toward the bottom of the station’s website homepage. If you right-click “view image,” you get this. From there, you can “save image as” or just do that directly from the homepage without opting to view it.

Kim is another male, just like the ones I referenced after playing female Kim Scott‘s “Take It to the Rink.”
