Promote your camp with a Public Service Announcement on BMIR

Promote your camp with a Public Service Announcement on BMIR-FM, Burning Man Information Radio!

BMIR-FM, 94.5 is The Voice of the Man and is the best way to let
Black Rock City know about what your camp has to offer be it a fabulous
bar, an event, a performance or a really cool art installation.

If someone in your camp is an audio wizard, we are now accepting
pre-recorded announcements. We would LOVE to have them in hand before we leave for the playa so we can start running them on the air ASAP.

Not sure how to record something ahead of time? No worries! J Kanizzle, BMIR's Production Manager has put together this handy tutorial that shows you how to download and configure Audacity, a free audio recording program. The tutorial then takes you through the basics of creating your very own announcement.

The tutorial can be found at : http://tinyurl.com/mn55p5

Once you have something recorded please email before August 21st to :
BMIR@Burningman.com

Remember to let people know the basics : what, where and when. Please
keep announcements under 60 seconds and send them to us in .mp3 or .wav format.

Can't make the August 21st deadline? You can also put your announcements on a CD or flash drive and hand deliver them to us on the playa. BMIR is located in Center Camp, on the Ring Road at 1:00, right between the Rangers and The Department of Mutant Vehicles.

Now if you just can't pull this off, no worries. The BMIR Production
Office will be open every day from 12N to 4PM during the event. You can
come in and we'll help you record an announcement right on the playa.

See you on the playa and remember to bring an FM radio!

So, uhm, can we pose naked on the radio as part of our camp promotion? I have always wanted to do that.


And can we promote events? Like ... say ... Thursday night hippie tipping! Hippie tipping is where you run into the center camp cafe at 3am and tip all the benches with hippies sleeping on them. Then you hurry up and sit on the bench and pretend you have no clue why they are waking up on the ground.

Sweet! I love it, but can you do it an hour earlier at 2AM. We'll be playing the Center Camp stage and we'd love to see you all doing the hippy tipping thingy!

:lol: THANK you for that - made me snarf big time! Trouble is... if you make a PSA about it, won't at least some of the hippies suspect the impending tipping? Hrmmm... on second thought, probably not.
