My Conestoga College admittance demo

I was disappointed to learn that the Conestoga College Broadcast Radio program (from which I am a proud alum) no longer asks for a portfolio when prospective students apply.

I was disappointed because when I applied to the program in June (or something) of 2009, I worked tirelessly on a demo that included a few parody commercials.

I was (and still am) proud of the work I put into these recordings. Listening to them today, I feel like they offer a glimpse into the not-so-distant past when I was dreaming upon a star to get my foot in the door of the radio business.

When listening, please keep in mind I had no formal training at the time. I was also using a crumby little dictation microphone not suited for broadcast-quality audio.

So without anymore throat-clearing, I present to you; me trying to be funny five years ago. Be gentle.
