Hi, I’m Ari. I just graduated from the Salt semester in Maine, learning to do documentary radio storytelling. This left me ushily-gushily in love with the medium in about a bajillion different ways. Here are just a few of them:
I’m really psyched to use WBTV-LP help people discover how fantastic making radio is, and form a community around it in Burlington. I’m going to get a group together to share ideas and feedback about pieces/shows they’re working on or want to make (stay tuned). I’m ready right now to be a resource for anyone thinking about what they might want to put on the station. At Salt I got pretty good at seeing how to make people’s ideas work better, without losing the personal style. If you have a show idea, topics you want to make a radio piece about, or a piece you want to workshop, let me know! My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. The station doesn’t go live until May, but there’s talk of some online streaming before then, and we can start developing content now.
Okay, what else about me?
I teach harmonica and a host of other random musical skills. In the name of shameless self promotion, here’s my website: www.pocketmusic.musicteachershelper.com.
I have a case of life ADD, so my other interests are eclectic: comic books, contradancing, any musical instrument, wilderness skills, sci-fi, splitting wood, and evolutionary psychology.
So, that’s me, as much as a blog post sized piece of cyberspace can represent a human. I hope to work on shows with some of you reading this right now!
