Listening to Radio Drama

Radio drama has its own way to capture imagery in the listener’s minds. The entire production tries to cover all senses as best as possible. Music sounds, and vocals are all very important. It lets you feel what the setting is, rather having to see it. If something is sad, then sad music will play, and so forth. I enjoyed the music because it sets the tone very well. It covers all bases very well. Sounds are all vital. While people can be familiar with jingle bells, or water running, it’s nice to gain a visual even though you already know what it looks like. The voice actor himself has a very approachable voice and you wouldn’t mind listening to him at all. You can literally be familiar with everything just by listening to it. Sometimes you can even feel familiar with everything and it’s always nice to relate to something. He would describe things to the fullest detail. For instance, even though we know what snow is, it’s interesting how far you describe the snow even though it’s just white. You explain every bit about it, like how it tastes or how it feels. I think it would have been smoother if he placed all of the sounds together for a complete story, so we don’t have to break our attention so easily. Television and film makes it so that the visual is there for you. They’re not expecting you to use your imagination; they’re giving you the imagination from their own minds. Radio drama allows you to create imagery. What’s interesting about it is that everyone will come up with their own story in their mind. No one’s thoughts will ever be the same as the other person, which is why radio drama is its own art form, and should continue to be used in any way.
