The radio show project is something I am really looking forward to. I have been brainstorming ideas since we were told about the assignment. So far I have two ideas:
- Review movies from the 80s such as The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, and Back to the Future. We would have a different episode for each movie and go in depth and talk about all the ins and outs of it, any themes we see, and just in general if we liked it or not.
- Compare and contrast the 80s vs. now. We could talk about the different fashion styles, what was popular in terms of movies, TV shows, and music, and talk about what was going on in the world then and now. I think it would be super interesting to compare because there have been lots of changes over the years. I think it would also be fun to interview someone who was our age during the 80s and ask them what they think of the world then vs now.
I’m still brainstorming on these ideas and also in the process of coming up with more. I would love to do something involving the music from the 80s because 80s music is some of my favorite music. I’m not sure how that could be incorporated into a radio show though…TBD.
I am excited to hear about other people’s ideas as we get closer to when we are starting this assignment!
