Here’s a Trident Technical College Internet Radio segment about Synethesia. Synesthesia is a neurologically-based condition in which stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads to automatic involuntary experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway. TTC Professor of English and Anthropology Sean Day lets us “hear” what he “sees” while listening to music. It’s very interesting. Have a listen.

TTC radio students cover Spoleto Festival USA

Radio instructor Marcia Warnock and two of her students participated in coverage of the Spoleto Festival USA this year for TTC Internet Radio. Marcia has been covering the festival since its inception and worked with the festival again this year to get her students access to world-class art and its creators.
Student Melissa Brooks interviewed Andrea Miller, choreographer with the Gallim Dance Company.

“It was very inspiring to watch her work, ‘I Can See Myself in Your Pupil.’ This form of dance is like no other I have ever seen,” said Melissa. “In our interview she said that she doesn’t look at her work as a style, but as a way of expressing herself and doing what is right for her body in rhythm and movement. Interviewing Andrea helped hone my interviewing skills to work in commercial radio. It was a big leap in my career goals.”

Student Michael Steinberg interviewed writer/actor Daniel Maclvor, who performed his solo show, “This is What Happens Next.”

“I’m glad that I had the chance to experience this as an assignment as part of my Radio III course,” said Michael. “Seeing it has opened my eyes to the variety of events Spoleto has to offer and I will probably make an effort to see at least one program at next year’s Spoleto. Also, interviewing someone of MacIvor’s caliber will help me in my current position at a local radio station.”

The New Kids on the Block

Ok, so they’re not really kids, but they are new. Please welcome Clay “Smurf” Brooks, Glenn “Mo-bucks” Weston, and Chris “Rooster” Youngblood to our station. They’re the hosts of a new program called “Don’t do this” in which they reveal the reasons why many of the things that are considered dangerous are in fact dangerous. Consider it an advice show for those who don’t have common sense.

In their first program, they went through the top ten things that one should never do when on a date, and “Rooster” revealed that he had a negative experience when doing one of the top ten.

If you have any funny stories that you would like for them to share in their program, please send an email to ttcdontdothis@yahoo.com or you can find them on their facebook page which is located at
