Kyle, Bryan, and Sarah, WRAL-FM, Raleigh Only at the Fair

Here’s another great example of the power of audio.  The North Carolina State Fair happened back in October.  As Kyle, Bryan, and Sarah, WRAL-FM, Raleigh went with their families, there was color all around them.  From the patrons to vendors to ride operators.  All these people (and more) had fun perspectives on the event and many had stories to tell of what they saw and experienced.  These guys are smart.  Not just because they know to bring this content to the show to position them as local and involved in what happens in the community.  But they also gathered audio (a simple feat with one’s cell phone) for story-telling from the colorful people around them.  In this clip, the bus driver taking fair-goers from the parking lot to the fairgrounds, the show quizzed him on the odd stuff he not only saw, but heard from others who worked the event.  Running this audio in the breaks, and commenting around it, is much more engaging than the one-dimensional act of them recounting everything for the audience.
