You've probably hear those station IDs the air between songs, with someone saying "This is mvyradio!" Would you like to do one?
All you need is a smartphone and an email. Just follow the directions below. We'll pick the best ones and put them into rotation on MVY!
Thanks for supporting mvyradio: Martha's Vineyard, YOUR town, and the World!
HOW TO RECORD AN ID
Most Smart Phones have a “Memo” feature. These instructions are for a iPhone, but can be generally applied to your phone.
Practice what you are going to say, a few times. Please use one (or more) of these samples:
“This is mvyradio, Martha’s Vineyard, (the name of your town), and the World.”
“You’re listening to mvyradio, now heard on 88.7 FM in (the name of your town)”
"This is mvyradio"
Open Voice Memos. Hit the record button.
Speak loudly and clearly, near the microphone on your phone. After you’ve said your line, hit done.
Save your voice memo, by giving it a file name.
Highlight the file. Look for the Forward button, which is a box with an up-pointing arrow.
Email the file to firstname.lastname@example.org. In the email, include your name.
By sending this file, you are giving us permission to use it on the air. We may or may not use all recordings sent to us. Thanks for doing it!
