Radio Rockstars! My journey inside MSU’s Recording Studio


“3, 2, 1, We’re recording now, You got this.” These were the words said to me by Ronan O’Shea, who has worked at Metropolitan State University for four years now. We were at MSU’s recording studio. “Being able to communicate is one of the most important things that you can do, and it’s what we try and teach up here,” Ronan says. My friends and I got to experience the weight of cameras, and met with a college graduate who talked about interviewing coaches, and going behind the scenes as a journalist. We also met up with Liz, who is an office manager, and collects rubber ducks from her students all over the world. At the recording studio, there are two rooms, one where the interviewer sits, and one where the interviewed sits. If you are being interviewed, you sit in a comfortable seat, put some headphones on, and speak into the microphone. If you are the interviewer, you put headphones on and ask questions. I had the opportunity to do both jobs. Being at the recording studio is fun and interesting, and we had a great time. I encourage you to visit their website and check out their studio.
