30 Minutes of Music: Episode 6 (The Beatles Episode)


[su_divider top=”no”]

A bit of a throwback here. I put together this hour-long podcast full of nothing but Beatles tunes back in 2012. I still like how it turned out, so here it is!

Nothing but fab-four for an hour.

College Confidential: 2012 Fleming Drive Riots

Update (March 2017): I have re-uploaded the two parts with redone voice overs and some script tweaks. I was never happy with how it sounded. That being said, you should know that I haven’t updated the documentary, so it’s still dated for March 2014.

Part 1 (11:50) [Download]

Part 2 (14:41) [Download]

In the second year of the journalism program at Fanshawe, we are put on a series of 4-5 week stints – or “rotations” – doing particular things. For example, for 5 weeks, you’ll be a reporter. The next 5 weeks, you’ll be a newscaster.

And then, for 4-5 weeks (depending on the term) you’ll be a ‘current affairs/documentary’ producer where, through sub-rotations, you’ll either be a) making 4 minute docs, b) hosting the show that airs the 4 minute docs, c) making a 26 minute audio piece, or d) making a video doc.

Last week, I was tasked to do c): make a 26-minute audio piece.  Since last week was also the week St. Patrick’s Day was going on, I decided to revisit the infamous 2012 St Patrick’s Day riots that took place around Fleming Drive.

Around 1,000 people were involved in the mayhem that went into the early morning hours. By the end, there were injuries, $100,000 in damages, and a torched news truck. The city and nearby Fanshawe College suffered major black eyes from the incident as the story began to appear in regional, national, and then international media.

One of the main ‘infamous’ moments of the riots was when a CTV truck got overturned and set ablaze. The photo at the top shows how the truck looked days after. (Thanks to former CTV’er Lisa Xing for uploading that to her Flickr.)

The piece is in two segments, which you can listen to above. The piece was assembled in about 3 and a half days.

Thanks to Police Chief Brad Duncan, former XFM’er Marty Thompson, CTV’s Chuck Dickson, and FSU President Adam Gourlay for talking to me. With their permission, I may upload longer interviews in the future, as I had to cut a lot out!
