My final project I did is based on a holiday mix since Christmas is almost here. The project is composed of the 6 best moments in my opinion for The Raymond Mora Sports Show with co-hosts and guests. I used audacity and my shows that I have done throughout the semester. It was a pretty long process because I had to choose if i should do 10 or 5. The 6 best moments were better based on it being close to the sample unless if I done a loop.
Here is the audio project and the sample I used for the background music credit to ESPN DJ Steve Porter. This particular DJ is very good and has come catchy moments during his mix. I chose to do it this way because it made it seem like it was a live radio show and it be fun to when you know what you are talking about.

(00:08- Number Six)- This moment was in the first show and its about the New York Giants and the struggles they had. The season was pretty early at the time and being 0-3 didn’t really help a lot.
(00:37- Number Five)- Second Show was shared with a co-host name Bryan White. Giants continue to struggle and Bryan, a giants fan talks about that. There was a lot of emotion and laughing but it shows that we had a good talk.
(00:59- Number Four)- This moment discusses the Knicks upcoming season and evaluating players that need to step up in order to take the next level. Iman Shumpert, Shooting Guard for the Knicks was being discussed and how much he needs to improve for the team to be successful.
(01:23- Number Three)- The show with guest Ashley Oken discussed the point guards against the Knicks since Center Tyson Chandler is out for an extended period of time. It was a funny moment because I was talking about point guards in the NBA scoring at will since the Knicks lack in help defense.
(01:45- Number Two)- Me, Bryan and new co-host Satish Ram discuss the star or superstar treatment that other players get in the NBA. It was a heated argument that can go on and on plus it provide some good details on the difference between a star and superstar.
(02:20- Number One)- The crew talks about the struggles of the Knicks including point guard Raymond Felton and some possible replacements for that position. I went emotional on the lack of consistency for Felton and they told me about some hate toward Felton. The player Kyle Lowry was part of the discussion as well.
These are the moments and I really enjoyed doing the project. Being able to make a mix even if it wasn’t like the sample made me think how hard it is to make an excellent one. DJ’s and mixers really know how to match and flow with the music. I have been doing my radio show for almost 2 years and I always try to improve on with each show.
To be able to talk about sports and trying to put some humor is quite challenging without outlining the show and getting a good script. This is a pretty great mix I thought even if its not like the sample, but overall it was a great project to do and I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
