I came across a forum thread, over at diycityguides.ning.com that talked about arts and crafts on the radio... intrigued I took a closer look and met the wonderful artist Wendy Humphreys (Wendy's Etsy Shop). Wendy is a contributing host for a new arts and craft based radio show called 'Art Talk Radio'. I've asked Wendy a few questions to help us find out a bit more about it...
1) I understand that you have become a contributing host for a radio programme on Art Talk Radio… can you tell me a bit more about Art Talk Radio and the programme you have become involved with?
Yes, Niki Jackson asked if I would speak about my jewelry designing on one of her shows. Of course I said yes, the ZNE network has been such a wonderful supportive place for me. I initially wasn't sure how to reach or interest all the artists that listen. In my first program I spoke about Artistic Origins, Inspirations, Techniques and I was ask to come back for the next show!
2) As a contributing host, what will you be talking about in your broadcasts?
I will be talking about inspiration and where to find it. I will go over different resources, I will share different basic how to books and where to find them. I spoke about Lark Books, publisher of many creative resource and learning titles. My next segment will be Building Your Toolbox: Tips and Techniques.
3) Where and when can I find the Radio Station?
If you wish to hear the latest shows on Art Talk Radio then please follow this link http://www.blogtalkradio.com/Arttalkradio/feed, turn your speakers up and press the ‘headphone’ symbol next to each show to listen to the Audio.
Thanks Wendy for telling us a bit more about Art Talk Radio... I'm off to have a listen now!
