Art On The Air

As a potential guest for ART ON THE AIR, here is some information that will help prepare for being a guest on the show.

Please send your background/bio/MP3 any info about projects/exhibits etc, at least a few days before the interview
that would be helpful in preparing for the show (see below).

We are pre-recording interviews and do telephone or preferably ZOOM with video for interviews but only using audio for the show itself.
We need to do Spotlight Interviews the week prior to the air date.

We get the best audio results on ZOOM using a headset or mic. It is best if you are in a quiet room to reduce background noise, echo, etc.

We can do Landline or cell phone if necessary (no speakerphone). 
Please have these ready to use at the time for your interview.

We pre-record interviews and preferably do ZOOM interviews usually on Tuesdays, though we are happy to arrange other days/times.

The show format - we do a six minute arts event Spotlight Interview with local arts organizations about current or upcoming events.

We then move onto our Feature Interview – usually two 24 minute segments or occasionally a single 48 minute segment.

Usually we start with personal background:
           hometown, school (HS & college), work, spouse/kids etc.
Then move on to the current work/exhibit/project/event.

Here are some tips to help us have a great show together:

PRE-INTERVIEW

Please send materials like bio/background/MP3/images at least several days before your interview.
Make certain you send then to AOTA@brech.com or LAB@brech.com.
Include links to your website, Facebook or other such web media.

Supply your email and telephone to AOTA@brech.com or LAB@brech.com to set up ZOOM meeting invitations.
The ZOOM invitation will come from doctorlabrechner@gmail.com.

We need a headshot of you (preferably) or your art for our website and promotion.  We can pull that from social media.

When sending materials in email, do not include large files in an email with over 10MB as we may not receive them.
If for some reason you have large files, please arrange for a sharing from Dropbox, Google, or downloads from a website.

Send documents in WORD (DOC/DOCX) or PDF, or plain TEXT.  

If sending music, MP3 is the preferred. 

We are pre-recording interviews and do telephone or preferably ZOOM interviews.

INTERVIEW

Please be on time and ready to go at your scheduled time.
If you are unable to on-time, please notify us.
We many times schedule back-to-back interviews so

We will do audio check and go over details before we start the interview.
When giving a website please forego using “www” for the URL address.

When we start we run the interviews “live to tape” meaning that we prefer not stopping during the interview. 
The final interview will go through some editing to make certain it fits our time. I
If a problem does come up we can stop and restart, but prefer to run the interview straight through.

For Spotlight Interviews, these are 6 minutes long discussing specifics about your event, gallery, project. 
Please be prepared with, dates, times, locations web/facebook links.  
Be aware of the broadcast date and use dates for the event and not “next Friday” or similar.

For our Feature Interviews, are usually 24 minutes unless we do a double interview (48 minutes). 
Usually we start with personal background: hometown, school (HS & college), work, spouse/kids etc.
Then move on to the current work/exhibit/project/event.
Be prepared to discuss details of your art/music and have website/social media site info at the ready. 
We will record slightly longer than 24 minutes so we can edit pauses or other issues.

For shows with music or other recorded material, we may opt not to actually play it during the interview and just introduce the song/audio then dub it later.

POST-INTERVIEW

We will let you know what the airdate for you show will be on the air.
Please share links from our facebook (www.facebook.com/artontheairwvlp) and website (brech.com/aota) on your social media.

We may send you a pre-broadcast link to your show.  You are free to listen but do not share until it is broadcast. 
After that you may share it on social media, website, etc.
