We began our practical production by analyzing radio station logos. We found that many logos were simple, colourful and effective. Many of the logos went straight to the point, such as ‘classic fm’, this clearly shows us that it was for a older people who listen to classical music, and the simple logo it had clearly shows us that for people who wouldn’t want to listen to hyperactive music. The following work at the bottom was my research:
The logo for Kiss fm looks a bit girly with the heart, which could mean that it mostly plays love songs.
Kiss Radio station doesn’t particularly have an age limit; it plays a lot of different types of music. For example they play R n B for younger people and they play it on the evenings when young people are normally going home from school or college.
Kiss plays R n B most of the time, but they do play hip hop, dance and electric pop.
However, on Saturday night and Friday nights they play Dance and Club Classics. This appeals to people who are 20-30 years of age.
Kiss don’t have a certain schedule, to play certain songs at certain times. However in the evenings, 3 – 5 pm the music type is mostly new R n B songs that are out, this is because young people put on their radios on the way home from school.
Kiss radio station is known to be one of the biggest and the most popular, because
Johnny normally does the top 40 UK Charts on Sunday at 4-7 pm.
He is not too funny, but he is quick on presenting the songs and he has to do this because it’s the Top 40!

They put on news quite often to keep people updated on the news, they put on certain types of music in certain different times, for example slow songs in the morning and the night to calm people down and fast music during the evening to keep people going.
We used the example of Kiss fm, to get ideas for out radio station log, Kiss fm targeted all kinds of music and the love heart attracted many people and it suited the target audience as we.
Therefore, we designed our radio station name and logo to represent young people, the graffiti type writing simplifies that it’s for young people and the name of the radio station ‘twist’ shows them that it’s going to the type of music that many people can dance, also the colourful writing will appeal to the younger audience and will attract them to listen our radio station.
We designed our radio station…Audacity…
Our production meeting were every Monday and during Media Studies lesson time. We gave ourselves a number of tasks to do, and then we decide to equally divide the tasks so that it will be fair in our group. We decided that the type of roles should be equally divided as well. So that we will be able to do a bit of all parts which include being creative to make poster, write reports and also do the technical stuff like recording the presenters.
Our advertisement for a presenter on the station was designed and created to attract a particular type of applicant. We wanted a presenter that is a chatty, loud, love gossiping, love music and is enthusiastic about their job. It is important to the station and the listeners the he/she talk and behaves as they do because it will attract younger audience and increase our publicity a lot.
Our schedule and programme was designed to appeal to younger people who would like to jam to some loud music and wouldn’t mind listening all other types of music. Our schedule and program targets them because the music will be put at certain times where we think the listeners will be in a certain mood, for example slow music when the listeners are feeling tired. However, we also target other people who like to listen to all sorts of music.
Similarly, the news agenda reflected that our aim on the radio station is not just in music, but that we also take care of the world around us, we aimed to target at the people in the UK, and people who would like to travel, and give people whether news around the country. Also some of the serious incidents that happened during the day.
Our radio station was successful because while we made the radio station because our group were able to give in ideas and work at their own pace, also it was less boring to do and much more fun. We gave each other chances to express their opinions and their ideas, and this helped us improve in our radio project.
If I was to do this again, I would like to have a much larger group, to see how people would work together, also people who are similar and not in friendship groups, so that each person will have a new experience and we go through the project. I wouldn’t also mind changing this to a much clam radio station, such as classic fm, so that older people will be able to listen to it, it will able be a great experience to us because we will be able to learn about other music types and will be able to open our minds to things that we don’t encounter everyday.
